I’m trying out a new theme. I thought i could use a change. Do you like it? thoughts? let me know. If enough people liked the old one then I’ll change it back.
Hey, if you’re in Toronto this weekend (thats April 3rd and 4th in case you couldn’t figure it out for yourself) and want to get away from your boring family or smelly couch (or smelly family and boring couch), then why don’t you come to the “Protest against protests” hosted by Improv in Toronto this saturday (thats the 3rd, keep up). It starts at 3pm. All you need to do is be at the giant horseman staue in queens park by maybe ten to three (2:50 if you can’t count backwards) and be ready to protest protests. Simple. I’ll be there taking pictures and will post some after the event. RSVP via the Facebook page (or not. I don’t care) or visit the Improv in Toronto website (<<“Improv in Toronto” is a link). SEE you there.
It’s that time again. Are you excited? (No). Anyways. This week I’ve been listening to the Gorillaz so the song is “Feel Good Inc.” from their album “Demon Days”. It’s one of their older songs but it’s my favourite so far.
I found this posted on the blog The Eminence Grise
Meet the Luther Burger.
Take one toasted Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut, split, add a bacon Cheeseburger sans bun, add ketchup and a dash of Mustard and enjoy. best washed down with a can of Cherry Coke.
It looks like a corronary in a donut. It looks delicious though. I want one.

This makes it a big iPod instead of a stand alone device where you would have to pay for all movies and videos making your existing collection mostly pointless because it would be stuck on your computer. This is the one thing that was really stopping me from considering buying an iPad and if these specs are correct then there is now a high chance i will buy one.
I have decided that I’ve had enough with deforestation so therefore I have started a new company to stop Tropical Rainforest Deforestation. It’s called C.R.A.P.P. This stands for the Creative Rainforest Action Protection Plan. It will help the rainforest in a very creative way. It will do things like clog up loggers chainsaws with jam and peanut butter. It will also help animals who have been tossed out of their homes because of deforestation by setting up a trust fund to help them purchase things they need like nuts and ipods. This is only in the planning phase so far but the website is expected to be up and running by the end of next week and everything should be set up a few days later. More will be posted later including a link to the website.
After years of following my parents all over the place while they go shopping I have started to notice something about “big box” stores. Most will advertise that they have “thousands of products” or “everything you need in one place” and while this is true they seem to only be well stocked or trained for one section of the store. A good example of this would be Canadian Tire. Canadian Tire is good if you need a part for your car or if you need something fixed on your car but all the other stuff they sell is mostly rubbish. Another example is Future Shop. They sell electronics, computers, movies and games. They are good for electronics but for movies and music I’m going to go to HMV. So look twice at these stores. You may want to look elsewhere.
