Spam of the Attention Whore

We all want to be seen. I’m as guilty of attention whoring as anyone. We log into these social networking programs and then our ego starts to inflate as people pay attention.  We digitally wave our arms and yell until someone gives us some attention…and now we’re all addicted. This addiction has given companies a chance to focus marketing on …

Alternate Universe

I might argue that “alternate universe”…or alternate reality stories are not only their own genre, but perhaps my favourite genre. Stories that ask the questions and tell the stories of…what if Hitler and the Nazis won the war…what if the aliens landed at Roswell instead of crashing…what if Neil Armstrong and the boys found someone waiting for them on the Moon? These …

Tradition Burns While O’Donnell Fiddles

Tradition is a wonderful thing. It provides us with that comfy pillow. Something we know. Something we understand. It gives us an excuse to do something stupid (ie: running with the bulls). It gives us an excuse to be racist (ie: the Washington Redskins). It gives us an excuse to feel good about doing something meaningless (ie: prayer). I know …

Why Couldn’t It Have Been OJ?

Seems ironic to me, after my “Nice Beaver” post yesterday that I must say this today: RIP Leslie Nielsen As I have said before, I am not a celebrity watcher. I do not worry about what Bradgelina are doing with the army they are currently raising before looking at how my kids are raised. However, today I add a fifth …

Suggested Viewing

“Earth that was could no longer sustain our numbers…we were so many…” – Teacher, Serenity I’ve decided to share a few of my favourites. Over the past five years I’ve shared tidbits, but now something more direct. Tonight, I’m going to take you all back in time. To a time when I still watched regular television. A Friday evening in …

Nice Beaver!

As I lay here under my covers watching the light come up outside, one thought has occurred to me. “It’s too fucking cold!” Being who I am, and where I live…this thought shames me. This country’s national animal is a beaver…a majestic animal that is a hard worker…and yes, I’m about to run with this a direction that does not …

Religious Bashing 101

‘Bout time I did more of this. I’ve been listening to Jon Stewart’s “Earth:  A Visitor’s Guide” the last few days…listened to it twice, actually, and beyond laughing, it has me thinking on how the larger con artists…better known as religious leaders…have basically hijacked our cultures. Usual disclaimer goes first here…I’m no atheist.  I practice something of a bastardization of …

Hiyo Silver!

My hands are still near frozen from this morning’s events…only so much blowing on them one can do before the fingers dry up and fall off… Have some pictures I’ll be posting on Facebook in a bit…no…no nudes…not this time…unless you count a horse as nude when it isn’t wearing pants.  Speaking of which, she did scream at a couple …
