      Can you guess why?and

      I doubt anybody reads my page anymore, as I rarely visit this site anymore, but like a lot of people around here, I'm stunned by the amount that Monty's death has hit me.

      5 days before the news of Monty's affliction broke, my mom called, and informed me that one of my little brother's friends had died in an industrial accident, and that he needed to find out before he learned about it through facebook or twitter.

      I handed the phone to him, and watched as my 18 year-old brother calmly talked on the phone about how his 18-year old buddy died the night before. He already knew, because someone contacted him via text in the middle of the night.

      I felt bad for my brother, even though I knew he wasn't my brother's closest friend. I have a few people that I barely know and I would feel broken up about, but Josh just seemed to act like nothing happened. I don't think I could do that if I were in the same position, and it worries me about him. I also felt frustrated with him because he likes to spend a lot of time in his room playing with his friends online rather than hanging out with us in the living room. I felt pretty guilty that I was judging his way of coping, but I felt helpless to help.

      Josh went back to Hudson Bay for the funeral, and that's when I heard about Monty.

      I checked back on the subreddit hoping to hear some good news every couple of hours. I was pretty optimistic because "that doesn't just happen to people." But then, you all know what really happened.

      And just like that I was mourning someone I never knew.

      And I felt guilty.

      I felt much worse than when my brother lost somebody he knew his entire life. It didn't make sense. I spoke to Josh's friend a couple times in my life, yet his death didn't hit me as hard as Monty. The kid was younger and more tied to my family, but I didn't feel much for his passing.

      Meanwhile, I mourned for a man I never met. It feels selfish, because I gave more of my time mourning him than helping my brother.

      I will miss Monty, but I also need to make sure my brother heals. Josh's wounds must be way deeper than mine.

      BUT despite the negative confusion I've been typing I still want to say this:

      Goodbye Monty, You were a genius of your field,and a terrific human being. You'll be missed.

    • Reality Check

      I think I need to get back to Saskatoon and reality. Why?

      Because I just heard my cousin come in, and drop his keys on the counter, and this is what went through my mind:

      "Good. At least now I know he isn't a zombie."

      I've had way too much time on my hands in Calgary. All I've done is watched zombie movies, Supernatural and played video games.

      I just shared a $200 bottle of champagne with the Dallas Stars' newest Head Coach. I'm proud to say that Glen Gulutzan is my cousin (in-law). Glen has risen through the ECHL and AHL over the past 10 years or so.

      Back when I was about ten years old, he married my cousin Nicole, and has been loved by the entire family ever since. He's a real down to earth guy, and tonight he briefly stated how his situation felt like a dream. We spent the rest of the night talking about their kids. (Like how Landon ate a minnow last week for fun)

      I personally can't believe that I personally know someone who will be on TV 2-3 times a week.

      tl;dr

      Congratulations Glen! This couldn't have happened to a better guy!

      Until RvB season 9 starts.

      That means it is time for me to revisit the rest of the Recollection and the Blood Gulch chronicles.

      It is like meeting an old friend again after a long separation. I'm sure most of your are doing the same.

      This is painful to watch, but also a work of art in its own way.

      After trudging along in the College of Engineering, I've come to realize that I left some of my high school passions behind. More specifically, the passion of movies and film-making. A couple of days ago, I caught myself ranting to a friend about character development and other aspects of making a good storyline for a movie.

      I talked his ear off, and came to this conclusion: I'm still passionate about the film-making.

      In high school I always made some half-assed video projects with my buddies. We never really gave it a great amount of effort or thought, but they were still OK. (For a couple of dorky highschoolers that is.)

      Now, last night I started dishing out some ideas for a webseries to my friend Garrett (the one who introduced me to RvB).

      The problem with trying to produce a webseries is that the chances of it reaching viewers is small.

      My question for you is this: What have other web series done to gain notoriety?

      Saskatchewan is, go ahead and post your best guess in my comments. Its a social experiment.

      A saskatchewan is a swiftly flowing river.

        I just lost my shit laughing at that explanation. Our province's favorite comedian has a comedy routine about how our province is so flat, that Sasquatch has no place to hide from us.

      • jaxom_rahl

        2 years ago

        My actual guess was that "Sasquatch" might have originated as a shortened form of that word, and that the word probably came from a brief description of the Sasquatch, by which it was referred to in a Native language. Then Wikipedia informed me that the place is named for the river that flows through it. The page for the river told me the meaning of the word, which actually didn't have anything to do with Bigfoot.

      Hmmm... I disagree. This will be my only post in there, but I DID link it to the group, which might attract a random from the forums.

      Now I agree we can't have a story post in the main Mafia thread every week, but I'm of the opinion that the game needs as big of a jump-start as possible right now.

      Polls might never lie, but there are procedures. That post will be lost inside 24 hours, which is why the dedicated story post threads exist wink.png Let's not drag the thread into focus on one game.

      Hey, did you hear already about tonights Monday night lunar eclipse, it is supposed to be a full eclipse of the moon, I am not totally sure when it is supposed to be visible for all of us here in the central time zone, but I think it is supposed to begin around 11pm "approx" first the moon will turn sort of orange and then go black, and it will be a long time before it comes back out again, it will be cool.

      info about the eclipse can eb read here...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_2010_lunar_eclipse
