    Extras work is slave labour in Halifax

    by  • 5/2/2007 • angst, Halifax, insanity • 1 Comment

    Photo by VirtualErn — CC Ever try to feed three hundred starving extras who were told that a light lunch would be provided? Would your first idea be to simply order 30 large pizzas, for a total of 240 slices? Then leave them all, unguarded on a table with no supervision? The first dozen self […]

    Internet Begging

    This is the stuff that makes me try any method possible to raise the roughly $8000 that I’m going to need to pay off the movers and the warehouse people at this end. Family photos, including some one of a kind ones of great great grandparents My art school sketchbooks Tania’s tools for making her […]

    Don’t Say…

    It would seem that Tania and I have each come to different decisions about our relationship and marriage. She seems sure that it’s over, and that there’s nothing I can do to change that. I’m not of the same mind; while I believe that I side with her when she quotes the bad things, I […]

    So very very close…

    While the Hell song is nice enough, the chorus going through my brain is more along the lines of a Ramones song; just over 24 hours from now, I’ll be leaving Vancouver with a one-way ticket to Halifax. I have much more that ‘Nothin’ to do’,  however. Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go I wanna be […]

    Every day I dislike Starbucks a little more.

    by  • 1/4/2006 • angst, life • 3 Comments

    The image above is part of an ad I received in an email from Starbucks, and it confuses me. You’d think that the philosophy majors running the espresso machine would understand that they’re not creating ANYTHING. The machines are fully automatic now in every Starbucks I visit – they don’t even have to tamp the […]

    Word of Warning; it’s not cute.

    by  • 12/15/2005 • angst, life • 0 Comments

    Okay, there are some people who deserve to be tripped, pushed to the ground, have scalding hot coffee poured on them, and then be beaten to a bloody pulp. These people appear to be much more common on my morning commute than they are on the evening one; is it that I?m angrier in the mornings, or that other people are dumber?

    When The President Talks To God

    by  • 9/4/2005 • angst, art, music • 1 Comment

    Not long ago, I downloaded the free track When The President Talks To God by Bright Eyes as a free download from iTunes. I was surprised at how lucid and angry the song sounded, and that it wasn’t more trite pop or R&B bullshit like what iTMS tends to giveaway in their stores. Not one […]

    Invasions go quicker than this…

    by  • 9/3/2005 • angst • 0 Comments

    The president toured the destruction in New Orleans, meeting only carefully screened citizens who held Republican Party memberships and who agreed to sign a loyalty oath and submit to a cavity search; well, not really, but the NYTimes article reads like it was that bad. Throughout his day, Mr. Bush did not address the shocking […]
