    • Election time in the frozen north

      Conrad_pooh

      It’s almost election time! Better get the forks read to jam into my eyes and ears while I watch TV. It’s happening already, the same Harper ad is running at a constant rate (I’m sure the rest will follow) and if it’s possible I hate the pasty, baby eating (probably) sack of curdled goat semen even more. The people in his ads really take the cake. I don’t care if she didn’t write it, the woman who says “I like the idea he’s a family man with young children†needs to be throttled with a raccoon corpse full of cement. The fuck does that mean? When his children get old will you like him less? When his children are in college should you not go near him for fear you’ll light him on fire? Not that I think he can hurt by fire, I’m pretty sure he was born of it. Are you telling me I should vote for this asshole over the other assholes because he’s preformed a natural biological function? The rest of the ad has the usual bullshit tough on crime, etc but that point really got me.
      The Ad is called “Main Street Canadaâ€Â, main street Canada contains (ages are aprox.): two white males age 18-25, two white males age 30-50, one white female age 25-35, one white male age 70-85, one white female age 35-45, one asian female age 25-35, one white female age 60-70 and one asian female age 18. I see more diversity on my bike ride to work and I cross main god damn street. If this is what it’s like now I can only image the white hot rage and colonic spasms that await when I have to sit through all the 3 parties ads and put up with the American’s bullshit at the same time. I need a drink… and a puppy to kick.

      I must have seen like 6 commercials for this Disney's Little Einsteins - Rocket's Firebird Rescue last night and every time the parts of my brain that make logical connections screamed and recoiled in fear. Here’s how the commercial described it, little Einstein (who shares no visual qualities to big Einstein i.e. funny hair) and his friends are going to help rocket (some kind of self-aware space ship) free the fire bird (a phoenix I guess) using the power of music. ? I understand this is for little kids, but jumping jesus on a pogo stick that’s a whole mess of non-sequiturs.

    • Adventure part two....

      12 years ago

      Conrad_pooh

      Sorry for the delay (not that anyone is reading this) but now on to part two of my northern adventure. The thing that needs to be explained for anyone who doesn’t live in Winnipeg or know where it is, is that it’s literally in the middle of nowhere. That may seem a bit strong, but look at a map it’s in the middle of Canada and the drive from city center to the next city of equal or greater size is at least 2 hours (approx.). So heading north is really boring. Yes you hit a few small towns but most are off the highway then there’s a stretch of 2 or 3 hours of nothing but bush… not that I don’t like watching the same 5 trees whiz by, but god damn that is boring. I happened to make a similar statement at the wedding and was given quite the glare by a man who looked like an over inflated soccer ball with a mustache… but that’s neither here nor there. Upon arriving at the cabin we rented and after a brief unpacking we walked down to where some other relatives had rented a cabin and it was there that I was informed as to what I would face. What you ask? God damn huge bugs that’s what! I’m not talking about some horse flies I’m talking about some prehistoric shit here. Bugs long thought dead and gone are being released from their icy tombs to reap a terrible vengeance on man for disturbing their eternal slumber!

      I won’t go into details about the wedding as it pretty much went off with out a hitch (considering it was raining that morning). How ever a black bear did show up at that reception… a glass of wine in his hand, I knew he would meet his connection, at his feet was a footloose man… wait I got side tracked by the rolling stones I hate it when that happens. Anyway a bear did show up and was chased off by some rangers there’s a pic of it below along with the promised pic of me in a tux. The lovely bridesmaid on my arm is Robin, this was taken just after she asked me when we should start walking and I'm saying ah to hell with it lets go now.

    • Adventures up north part one..

      12 years ago

      Conrad_pooh

      This adventure (told in two parts) begins almost a two weeks ago when I received a call from my cousin Jason. Who lives in Calgary (Alberta) but is getting married in Cranberry portage (Manitoba [where the bride grew up]) and is from Flin Flon (Manitoba [about twenty minutes away from Cranberry Portage]). Just to add the third point to this geographical door stop, I’m in Winnipeg (Manitoba). Below is a map that illustrates this Canadian Triforce of power.

      map.jpg

      I should mention at this point I’ve already committed to going to the wedding but I’m a bad story teller so… shut up. Anyway back to the phone call, I was falling asleep on the couch after getting home from work when I answer the phone and he gives me the lowdown. Apparently through a laundry list excuses going from financial trouble to family emergencies he was down a groomsmen, would I be able to step up. Now I’m already going (days booked off work and everything) so I can’t say no. Plus this is one of the few cousins I knew growing up and liked so even if I hadn’t planned on going I still would have stepped up. He sounds hell on the phone so I tell him sure (after waking up a little and understanding what was happening) and that I’ll send him my suit measurements as he offered to rent the tux.

      Fast forward a week to the Tuesday before the Saturday wedding, I feel sick. Just stuffed up with a sore throat, so I medicate and call in sick to work thinking some buckleys and time will cure this. Wednesday, up and feeling better just a sore throat left still taking the buckleys with a halls chaser (the kind in the black package that may not taste like lemon or cherry but work). I was staying at my folks place that night so we could get all get up early and head out (it’s about a 7 hour drive). Sitting on the couch sucking back another halls something strange happens, my left ear gets plugged, really plugged. Then it starts to hurt. I’ve felt this once before, oddly enough almost exactly ten years ago just be for high school grad when I got an ear infection that cost me a little hearing in that ear. Now I’m trying to find a walk in clinic that’s open, then I call around checking how busy the emergency rooms are at the closer hospitals. I end up just taking some advil to deal with the pain with plans to get to my doctors office when it opens and see if I can sneak in. I get in to the doctors office at 9:00am and by 10:00am I have Amoxicillin and we’re off to the wilds of northern Manitoba.

      Tune in tomorrow for part two and pictures of something I’ve managed to dodge of 27 years, wearing a tux. Plus a wedding crashing bear.

    • Lucky 13

      12 years ago

      Conrad_pooh

      I saw Ocean’s 13 yesterday and damn was it good. Now I don’t think that 12 was a bad movie, but when held up to 11 it just wasn’t as good. 13 really brings back the feel of 11. Each one of the amazing cast members gets there spot to shine (something that 12 lacked) and having the one job to focus on for the whole movie meant that if you watched closely you had a chance of figuring out what the little twists would be (unlike the blindside in 12). I wonder if this is going to be like the reverse of the star trek movies, where instead of the even ones the odd number movies are the good ones.

    • Things I’d Never thought I’d do

      -#1 Defend a Michael Bay movie.

      The internet is good for three things,
      1) goofing off at work
      2) pornography
      3) bitching about useless shit

      It’s the third one that’s got me going. I’ve been seeing a lot of transformer fans bitching about the new movie. I know, I know, I shouldn’t let it bother me but it’s getting to the point where I have to question what it was these people were watching way back in the mid-eighties. Let’s set aside the youth goggles with their nostalgia tinted lens’s and look at what the show really was (I have all the dvds so this is easy for me), yup, uh huh, ya it’s a 20 minute toy commercial and a poorly written one at that. But it was a commercial for really awesome toys and at the end of the day when giant robots fight everyone wins.

      Lets take a look at some of the “problems†people are having with movie. First bubble bee isn’t a vw bug, I will give this one to you. It irked me that he was changed but gmc paid and so now he’s a camero. Remember the original show was made to hock toys so it’s hard to say they sold out. I mean for Christ sakes you can buy an Optimus prime with a 600ml pepsi bottle for a trailer. No sir the sold out train has sailed. Next up, Prime isn’t a cab over style truck… so fucking what? If you look at the aforementioned pepsi prime toy you’ll see he isn’t a cab over style, he’s been a lot of different kinds of trucks. I think he’s even been a fire engine. Most of the problems sound the same “why isn’t blank a blank?!†and I think I’ve established my point of view on that so I’ll move on to the big one, Michael Bay. Lord knows even I cringed with I heard he was directing it. How ever after seeing the trailer and thinking about it, it started to make sense. No really, what is a Bay movie if not a low on plot poorly written action/explosion extravaganza. When you think about it he’s perfectly suited for a movie that’s main goal is to show giant robots fighting. I don’t care what version of the cartoon you watch the one thing (I think the only thing) that is consistent in transformers is autobots fight decepicons. Cause lets be real about this that’s all a transformers movie really needs, cool looking robots that transform and fight.

      If you don’t like the look of the robots or were never a fan of the show that’s fine I’m not here to say you have to like it. I’m also not saying this will be the greatest movie of all time, just that it looks entertaining. Say you don’t like it cause you think it looks bad, not because it doesn’t live up to some memory of a show you watched when you where too dumb to know any better.

      so it's 48 hours now?

      We had a bit of a "discussion" about it a little while ago, but never really came to a real consensus. Some people like 48 hours (like me... cuz I know that some people don't have the time to enter a contest when it's only 24 hours long), and some people like the 24 hour rule (mainly because 48 hours can seem a bit long, and if you can't think of anything for the source, it seems like an eternity while you wait for the next one) ... there are legitimate pros and cons to each option smiley3.gif

      But because we haven't been able to come to an agreement as a whole, the trend seems to be that each judge rules the contest in the time period that he/she thinks is best. Some of us have been doing 48, some have been doing 24.
      So, I guess it's up to you on how long you want to take before judging this one... *shrugs*

      the moderator hasnt given any input yet ...
