Damn Hair

There's something wrong with me. Ok there's something new that's wrong with me. Twice this week, I've seen people on the train will big hair, and twice I had to fight the urge to tackle them, and shave their heads with hair clippers.

I will concede the fact that I didn't have hair clippers with me, but if I did, I would have ended up in front of a Judge saying. "Dammit, your honor, the hair was just too big a poofy, and it had to go", or the the second person, it would have been "Dammit, your honor, the 80's are over and the hair had to go."

Are these people looking at themselves in the mirror in the morning?  I swear the first guy could have been smuggling a family of 4 in that hair. I regret not taking a picture, but he got off the train before I could get a picture. I think he saw me sizing him up.

There's this other guy i keep seeing. He has some really long hair, but it's all tired up with multiple rubber bands. I keep thinking, that I could cut it all off with one quick snip.

Now I don't have a thing for hair, but dammit, if your hair is soo poofy, that it gets caught in the door. YOU have a problem.

NO MORE POOFY HAIR PEOPLE. The 80's are over.

I figured out what the problem is

Ok I've figured out why, I no longer have the fire to blog as much as I used to. It's because I've mellowed out, and no longer easily triggered into rage. I want to say that I've "matured", but based on what I've heard from "responsible adults" from across the border, I don't want to be associated with people like that. I think I've become less likely to "snap to judge". Is there a valid reason why someone would say something like that, unless it came from Fox News, then I know to instantly file it under bullshit. I think this is the price of open mindedness.

That's the key, I try to be opened minded as opposed to the closed minded Right Wingers or the closed minded Left Wingers. Either it's Fox News with their crap of the lefties like the douchebag who writes a open letter to Jerry Seinfeld telling him how to do comedy because something Jerry said was found offensive by someone. I really find both types to be the same person. They feel they have the right to control people and how they think. The difference is what they specifically want us to think. Right Wing, or Left Wing. They're still the Thought Police.

Sure sometimes I get pissed off by both sides, but these days I just except to happen, and take a whatever kind of attitude. Not because I'm indifferent, but because I feel like a hypocrite in trying to push my morels values, while attacking them for trying to force their values on me.

Don't get me wrong. I will make an exception for an individual (and it really has to be bad), but I'm not going to attack a group for their beliefs (that's Fox News job), and I'm not going to condemn someone for voicing their opinion (that's the "Thought Police's job).

I think the main issue, I don't want to scream. The Right screams at the Left, and the Left screams at the right, and no one hears anything. I don't want to be part of the screaming. I'm sure that eventually I'll snap at one side for going too far. I have in the recent past, but I'm just tired of screaming for the sake of screaming.

I haven't even talked to anyone about who I intend to vote for, and I won't tell anyone. I have people in my Facebook feed promoting one side, or the other, and I plan to keep it that way. If I were to voice my intentions of who I would vote for in the upcoming Federal Election on October 19th (Canadian election), I'm sure I'll get some people telling me why I'm wrong to feel the way I feel, and to try and change my mind. The thing is, I've given this a lot of thought and I'm committed to my decision, and I don't want an outsider trying to influence it. At the same time, i don't want to force my views on others because of the hypocrite thing.

Maybe in the future, this will change, but for now, I'm just going to keep things on a low flame.

TV does rot your brain. OK maybe a little bit.

I remember when i started blogging again. I was looking forward to once again blogging on a near daily basis, and sharing my wisdom with the internet. I was going to be able to have the world clamoring for my thoughts. In reality, I'm doing this on a weekly basis, not a daily basis, but I'm not giving up.

I look at the situation, and in the tradition of the entitled people of the western world (which, I'm not by western standards, but definitely standards in other parts of the world), I choose to blame others instead of myself. This week, I blame TELEVISION.

On Monday, I blame Gotham, and Miss Piggy along with the rest of those Muppets.

On Tuesday, I blame Agents of SHIELD, and The Flash

On Wednesday, I blame Arrow, South Park, and Moonbeam City (don't judge me)

On Thursday, I blame Heroes Reborn, Sleepy Hollow, and The Blacklist.

On Friday, I blame Continuum, and Mr Robot.

On Saturday, I have no one to blame by myself, but it is catch up for stuff I missed like Minority report because there are too many shows that I watch.

On Sundays, I blame The Walking Dead, and Comic Book Men.

Again, I blame these shows, and not myself.

This is why I don't blame myself. I enjoy good story telling. Just like people who like to read, I enjoy being sucked into another world filled with Superheors, Time Travelers, Conspiracies about Shadow Governments, and life in the zombie apocalypse. However, unlike others, I too lazy to pick up an actual book and read it.

Apparently I'm not the only person who enjoys many of these shows. As some of these are in seasons 3, to 6. Also, I've meet many fellow fans at conventions in Calgary as well as in San Diego (The Disney World of Comic Conventions), and there are a bunch of us who love these worlds on Television, the Movie Screen, and Comic Book, and yes actual books. Now you might be saying "how about going outside and see the real world"? To which I say "have you seen what's out there?"

Real life can be really boring. I said it. Sure, people take time to do some cool stuff, but the whole job thing really is boring. While, it's been awhile since I hated my job so much, that I was praying for death, I'm still bored. My life of going to work, working, going home, sleep, repeat is boring as hell. I want some drama in my life, some excitement, and I get that with my TV.

While, my time watching TV is taking blogging time away, I watch these shows, because I like them. I enjoy sitting on my couch watching hour after hour my shows. I enjoy these world better than my own. It's not boring.

While I may not get invested in all shows, like Orphan Black for example (I hate the main character). I can see people getting into the shows and seeing what will happen next. I see this at one point or another for all tv show...except Coronation Street. Ugggghhh.

So this is why I'm not here as much, but I'm trying. I'm trying.

I can't find the words

I'm trying to write about how the American religion right doesn't seem to like the pope, but I can't seem to find the right words. When I write about issues like this, I like to do some research, and be able to site my sources so it doesn't look like I'm not just pulling stuff out of my ass, but this time I'm finding it hard to argue about this logically.

Before Pope Francis, I was embarrassed to admit that I was catholic because of the action of others. I didn't want to be associated with them, because I did not agree with what they were saying. These were the type to quote scripture from the Bible to justify their stance, but I don't know need some obscure quote in the good book to know when something is wrong.

I think this is why my first attempt at this post failed. Just as these people use obscure quotes to justify their point, I was looking for news articles to prove my point. I didn't need to do this, because sometimes, WRONG IS JUST WRONG because what my heart tells me.

I've been reading recently about some religions people, including Mike Huckabee  talking about how the Pope is wrong, and blasting judgement on him, and i just feel shame for these people. I don't remember Jesus doing these things.

Pope Francis tends to speak of tolerance, and has even spoken for Same Sex Marriage, as well voiced concerned about Climate Change. Now if the leader of the Catholic church preaches about acceptance, and voices concerned about Climate Change, you would think that the American catholic would listen and agree with him? Well some do, others do not.

Pope Francis has spoken on Climate Change before, and I the reaction from many (insert Fox News stinger here), feel that the Pope should be minding their own business. So if the Pope says something they agree with, they praise him. If he says something they don't agree with, they tell him to mind their own business?

These people have gone so far as to state that the Pope is a not a real Christian. I believe its these people who are not the real Christians, and I say this as a Catholic. I went to Catholic school until grade 12, when my family moved to Ontario, and not once, were we ever taught intolerance. So it's these people who are in fact the Fake Christians. I say this because when I hear them speak, all I hear is hate, and this was not what Jesus taught us.

So to all the Fake Christians out there including Kim Davis, and Mike Huckabee, I say this.


Hey I already admitted that I was a terrible Catholic.

He's Muslim,. He must be a terrorist.

There's this 14 year old  boy who's name is Ahmed Mohamed. He apparently likes to tinker with electronics, and built a home made clock. So he takes it to his school to show his teacher. now maybe I'm crazy, but I believe that a teacher is support to encourage their students to pursue their quest for knowledge. Encourage them to better themselves. Well this isn't the case in Texas. Instead he's questioned about the device, and take into custody for making a suspected bomb.

I forgot to mention that the boy is Muslim, there it must have been a bomb. THIS IS RACISM AT IT'S WORST. Before, you say I'm not being fair about what happened. I ask, would this happen to a white person? I say not. It's the same thing with #BlackLivesMatter. While some people are saying all lives matter, and I do agree with that. It's not white people being shot by the police.

Now, being Canadian, I see one fundamental difference between myself, and our neighbors to the south. I do not live in fear. When I watch US news, the top stories are usually about how someone has been killed in one form or another. In Canada, the top story isn't about fear and death.

It seems to me, that certain people, groups, or even political parties thrive on fear. Personally, I see it as a way to hold them back. If you're scared all the time, how are you going to go outside, meet your neighbors, and form a community. That's not going to happen if you're hiding in your home because of the threat from (insert religious group/ethnic group here). Personally, I would be nervous around white Americans. Whenever there's a mass shooting in the US, it's most likely done by a white person. 

I remember hearing about a gun shop owner having a gun sale during 9/11 this year, where if you said Muslim, you would get a discount. This is a perfect example of how people are trying to profit from your fear. Now there have been reports of extremists living in Calgary going off to join ISIS. In fact, some of them were living in my building . I'm not kidding, the picture of the building in the link is my apartment building. I may have very well, shared an elevator with a ISIS terrorist.Does this mean that I'm now scared of anyone in my building who follows Islam? Not a chance.

I have worked with, and befriended many people of the Muslim faith. I've even met a family who has to free Iraq during the first Gulf War, and they were the kindest people I've ever met.

Sure there are some bad seeds out there, but these days, i see equal opportunity hate out there. Honestly, I'm more nervous around White Americans than follows of Islam. They're not the ones who want to walk about my city armed.

My comic world just went pppfffttt


I just read this from multiple sources that in the fourth issue of the new Invincible Iron Man comic, a new character is to be added. Mary Jane Watson. Yes the MJ who's married/was married to Peter Parker.

My reaction to this news was a loud NOOOO. Bad idea, bad idea, but then I thought maybe I should wait and see what will happen.

Perhaps I need to give some details about the background around this. For a long time, Peter Parker was married to Mary Jane Watson. They had their rocky spots, but I always considered them the first couple of the Marvel Universe. (I've never been a fan of the Fantastic Four, so Reed and Sue Richards don't count). It proved that a superhero can live happily ever after with their beloved. That was until the Civil War story line. (The same story line as the new Captain America movie will be based on when it's released next year). In this story line, Peter, and Mary Jane are made to forget that they were ever married. Needless to say, I hated this.

Now forward to this year. Marvel is in the middle of the Secret Wars story where the whole Marvel Multiverse has been destroy, and all that exists in the Battleworld. In the Battleworld, there are a bunch of separate domains where people people from different domains are not suppose to interact, Think of it as a "What If", and each domain is a different story.

In one of the domains, the comic series Spider-Man Renew Your Vows takes place. In this domain Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson are still married and they have a daughter named Annie. I really loved this series for the story, and the idea of Peter, and MJ are still married and have a daughter. Again, I don't see why heroes can't live happily ever after.

One more important thing, is after the Secret Wars storyline is completed, the whole Marvel Universe is getting a reboot (Marvel says it's not a reboot. I call bullshit on that). So will this new version of Mary Jane ever have a relationship with Peter? Does she and Tony Stark become an item? I hope not. I really want MJ back with Peter, and I don't trust Tony anywhere near her.

I'm still a Marvel fanboy, but this idea of MJ and Tony Stark together gives me the creeps.

I'm awake....I'm awake

I haven't left again. Not yet anyway. I'm just not quite sure what to write about.

I think the problem is that for the longest time, I had trained myself to write on a near daily basis, but then the batteries went PPPFFFTTT. Actually, it has to do with my state of mind.

When I started blogging I was working a job that I despised, for a company I had no respect for, because I felt that I was underpaid, and unappreciated. I wouldn't mention the company name for fear of being sanctioned in some way. It was only after I has given my 2 week notice that I decided to test my theory, and it proved correct, as I was terminated even after I had given my notice. The nice thing was that I was paid an extra 2 weeks wages and got the rest of my last week off. I ended up buying a PS3 with that extra money. Thank you Kohl and Frisch for the PlayStation 3, but you're still assholes. (You can't fire me again PPPPFFFTTTT).

During those times, I was raging against the dying of my light, but after that I was feeling that things were going in the right direction, so I felt less rage. I think it was during that time, I felt less and less of a need to blog, until the point that I stopped all together.

Now looking back, I see that I was confirming. As long as I received a decent paycheck, I didn't feel a need to be creative.  I was content with how things were. I was starting to do the things, I always wanted to do. I traveled, and started to see the world. I went to Chicago, I went to San Diego for Comic Con multiple times. I went to London, England, and got to meet a blogger friend face to face. My light wasn't dying then, so why did I need to blog.

It's after I was downsized from my current job, that I felt a need to blog again. It wasn't because I felt down, as I ended up getting a new job 2 days later, thanks to a friend (Networking works people). It wasn't what I did before, but it was a new opportunity, with new options for my career.  It was a step back, in many ways. I was doing first call resolution again. It was a small company as opposed to working for a large oil and gas company, but I was something else. Growth. This company is growing. I'm on the ground floor of something that is going to be something big one day. I truly believe that.

So I don't feel a need to blog because my light is dying, but I feel a need to blog in order to be creative. I loved some of the old stuff I wrote, and I know I can write some awesome new stuff. So I'm going to continue to write. I'm going to be creative so my mind doesn't dull. I love to think about stuff. So I'm hing to make my best effort to keep at this.

Oh, and the other reason I stopped blogging. Fucking Facebook.

Comic Book Nerd or Pervert.

So last week, i picked up a new 3TB hard drive for my PC. I’m not going to say where because I want free stuff before I do it, so screw them. Before the new drive my main storage drive was a 1.5TB. I’m trying to get through the technobabble as quickly as possible, here. I can already hear some of you going. I really don’t care about this shit, but the point is, I added a third hard drive which was twice as big as the old drive.

Now I decided I wanted to move the largest folder over to the new drive in order to free up space on the old drive. Now here’s the shocker. The biggest folder on that drive was NOT THE PORN FOLDER.  Yeah, I was surprised as well. I even kidded myself on the way home by saying,. 3 Terabytes, that’s a lot of porn, but smut did not dominate my hard drive. What did was comics.

I’ve been a comic book since I was a teenager. Sure I read a comic book here and there when i was a kid, but I didn’t really get into comics until I saw a really cool cover. Its was Star Wars issue 61 which featured a close up of the cockpit of a tie fighter with it being piloted by Luke Skywalker. The cover enticed me, and I bought the comic, and was hooked ever since.

Now I’m going to go babbling on about my love of comics (I can hear the eyes starting to roll to the back of your heads again), but the point is I had more comic books, than porn on that hard drive. This means I’m more of a comic book nerd than a pervert. I don’t know if I should proud or disappointed. I could analyse this deeper, but I’m scared of what I will find.

Now there days, they made parody porns (well that’s what I heard), where they do x rated parodies of superheroes, sci-fi movies, and even classic tv shows (again, I just heard this), so it looked like there’s now a place for comic book nerds, and perverts can now have common interests. Well not me, because I’m not a pervert.

However I am a HUGE LIAR.

I did not fall on my keys

So I’m getting ready for work this morning. I’m all dressed, and I look pretty and all, and suddenly BOOM. I can’t find my damn keys. Why is it always the damn keys. I have a spot where I normally put them, but I did some late night laundry, so I needed my keys.

It’s amazing where you will search when your keys are missing. I looked at the usual places, like the dining room table (or it’s not really a dining room). The coffee table, my workstation desk (for my last job where I was able to work from home), but no luck.

Now I start looking at the more unusual places. The refrigerator? Maybe I decided to put my keys there when I went for a drink ,Nope. The freezer?  Maybe I was sleep walking and decided I wanted ice cream in my sleep, even though I don’t have ice cream in the freezer right now. Nope.

Then onto the bathroom. Did I leave them in the bathtub? Why would they be there? Nope. How about the tank behind the toilet? Again, I have no idea why they would be there. Nope. I just hope that I didn’t flush them down the toilet. You’d think I would remember doing that.

What if I accidently threw them in the trash? I go searching through them. I find an empty box of cremecicles, a box of Tuna Helper, and a can of tuna. The statistic bag to the new hard drive that I bought (I’ll talk about that next time), but no keys.

By this time, i start searching the couch again. Also look under the bed. Behind the bookshelf. On top of the bookshelf. NOTHING.

Now I’ve been looking for a good fifteen minutes now. I’m going to be late for work. I keep looking and now I’m looking at the same places for the second and third time. I don’t know why I looked at the freezer again. It wasn't there the first 2 time, so why would it be there now?

Again, you're wondering, if you checked there twice there already, why would it appear when looking a third time, but I was getting desperate. Then boom. I found my keys. In the the pants pocket of the pants i was wearing last night. I KNOW FOR A FACT I SEARCHED THOSE POCKETS TWICE, so why did they suddenly appear? I have a theory. I think the keys ended up in that alternative dimension that one soft goes when it gets lost in the library.

THAT HAS TO BE IT, OR I’M CRAZY !!!. Ummm maybe not crazy, just really weird.

I'm indifferent, and I'm ashamed of it

So I was planning on write something about Coronation Street. How can this show be on for more than 50 years, when as soon as I hear that theme, I fall asleep, so maybe the show gets such good rating, while the TV is on, the viewers were asleep. That was before I heard about ANOTHER shooting, this time live on television. Reporter Alison Parker and Videographer Adam Ward were killed during a live report. You think that perhaps, it was in some dangerous neighbourhood, but nope, it took place in at an outdoor shopping mall for tourists. The killer was a former co-worker, who was fired earlier this year.

What bothers me isn’t so much that this occurred. What bothers me is that this occurs so often that I’ve become desensitized by it. I’m honestly ashamed of myself over feeling this way, but it happens so often, and no real actions are taken to stop these acts from occurring, I’m not at the point of saying “Whatever”

I know that some have tried to do something to prevent these acts from occurring in the future, but others will stand in their way for one reason. They were paid to do so. Let’s not bullshit ourselves here. The NRA in the United States works to block any gun legislation so the gun makers can continue to sell their products, and make money on the deaths of the innocent.

I remember awhile back where a group set up a fake gun shop, which featured guns that were used to kill people, even from Sandy Hook.. I remember the NRA tried every trick in the book to have these people prosecuted. However all their arguments, “and lies” were called out as an officer from the NYPD was there for the who event to make sure no laws were broken.

I admit, that the idea of firing an assault rifle does sound pretty cool, and there are gun ranges in my city which will allow me to do this, but in a controlled environment, under supervisor of a gunsmith.

That’s the key thing. Responsibility. People who fight against gun legislation need to be made responsible for their actions. No more hiding in the shadows. They need to be put into the spotlight. A PSA of the person, with a picture of the gun that was used in killing someone.

however I doubt that would happen, because like myself, they’ve becomes numb to it. I just wonder if they feel as ashamed as I do, because I’m not proud of being numb to this

I have a Playstation....IN MY PANTS

I remember buying my Playstation 4, in the early spring when i was denied a Comic Con pass. My thinking is that this was something I wanted, but it wasn’t a high priority. San Diego Comic Con was a higher priority, but when it wasn’t going to happen, I figured that I go and buy one. This is the key thing. I bought the PS4. I didn’t try to steal it by sticking it in my pants like  Floridian Christopher Caldwell, 36 tried to do.

Now, I don’t know how big this guy is, but why did he think he was going to get away with this? Two words HAMMER TIME. This guy was wearing parachute pants, made famous by MC Hammer, but I don’t think MC Hammer was trying to steal game consoles in his baggy pants. Kris Kros wore baggy pant, but never tried to steal a game console. Who thought that it was a good idea to steal a Playstation 4 by sticking it in their pants?

Ever hear of the “pregnant” lady, who steals a frozen turkey as “the baby” This sort of makes sense, but this. This guy must have looked ridiculous with a large box bulging from his crotch, or was he going for the big “box” shaped box look. Why are there no pictures of this guy with the Playstation 4 in his pants? Maybe he should have also crapped himself, so it looked like a huge doogie?

I barely remember an incident involved my short lived criminal activity, but my mother has told me the story more than once. Especially when my parents had to pick me up at the police station. I think I was around 5, or 6. I was attending pre-kindergarten at the time. One day, I decided to go shopping at a Canadian Tire. I don’t remember getting there. I thought I walked, but my mother insists that I took the bus. Once at the store, I grabbed a shopping cart and proceeded to “buy stuff”. A large amount of sporting good, and according to my mom, a large container of Turtle Wax for my dad. After I loaded up the shopping cart, I made my way out of the store. According to my mother, a store clerk even helped me with the shopping cart. Now I’m pretty sure at that time, I did not understand the concept of money. I made it across the street, when someone from the store and a police officer spotted me. I don’t recall too much after that, except staring at a monitor in the police station, until my parents picked me up. I don’t recall exactly, but I’m assuming the store did not press charges.

Now here’s the primary difference between myself and Christopher Caldwell, 36 West Palm Beach, Florida. First, I was 5 or 6 years old, as opposed to being 36. Secondary, I didn’t try to hide my ill gotten goods in my baggy pants. I had them in a shopping cart for everyone to see. Lastly, I WAS SIX AND DIDN’T KNOW ANY BETTER. He’s 36 and should know better.

Dumb ass.

RIP Yvonne Craig AKA Batgirl

Today, we lost the original Batgirl. The one who was in the 60’s tv show with Adam West. Sure the show was campy, but that was part of the appeal. Sure she never punched any villains or henchmen, but she did lots of kicking. Somehow Batgirl would always be on some stairs, or a wooden crate so she could kick someone in the face with the BOOM effect appearing to block views from seeing that she didn’t really connect. I also loved how Alfred knew who she really was really Barbara Gordon, but never told Bruce Wayne (Adam West), and visa versa.

 The really cool thing about Batgirl was that she had a motorcycle as opposed to the batmobile, that Batman, and Robin drove.

 The thing about that series was that all the big names from that era wanted to appear on that show. From Vincent Price (A movie god) as Egghead, to Burgess Meredith (Mickey from Rocky) as The Penguin, to Julie Newmar as Catwoman. That show was the first really successful attempt to bring comic book characters to television.

She also was the Orion Slave girl from the classic Star Trek series. I remember an interview I read of her, how she said the the green makeup kept coming off on everything, and everyone she touched. There were no reports of green handprints on anyone’s butt however.

She was also on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. A movie reboot of that show just came to the theaters this month. Looking at her IMDB page shows her work goes all the way back to 1957, and her last credit is 2011. Working in the industry for 50 years is a major accomplishment.

I’m not a big fan of 60’s sci-fi, but Batman, and Start are exceptions. I’ve never seen The Man from U.N.C.L.E. so I can comment if it was a good show or not, but Yvonne was part of multiple series that helped shaped Pop Culture today. The original Star Trek has been re released in multiple formats, and I currently own this series on Bluray. Also recently the Adam West Batman show has also been released on Bluray. It’s a box set and expensive, but I think it’s worth it to see Batgirl again.

 You will be missed Yvonne.

I’m feeling lost right now. I’m started on a new opportunity, but I’m feeling a little lost. About a week ago, I was laid off from my IT job in the oil and gas industry, and within a week, I managed to get a new job. A good thing, right? Well my bank account thinks so, but I think I’m suffering from a bit of cultural shock.  Right now it’s really slow, and that bothers me. It’s hard to get into the flow of things when it’s slow.
I also fear change.

I’m going to be honest here.  I miss my old co-workers, and I know some of them miss me. I’ve been in contact with a few of them and even the team lead wants to get together sometime soon. Losing my job was about finance, and not work performance.

I also miss the breakfast buffet on the main floor on Fridays. It would include a big helping of BACON. Mmmm Bacon.

The new place is a very relaxed atmosphere, and while the old team were close, and got along very well, it was a corporate environment. Using my ID to enter the building. Fancy cubicle pods. A security guard who walk about once a day. Someone who watered the plants. Someone who managed kitchens, to make sure they were fully stocked with coffee, juice, and pop.

I’m now in a small officer in an industrial park. Canada Post has a sorting center across the street, and a truck stop with a Denny’s up the street.

Oh I forgot, there’s a casino in walking distance as well, so this will be handy when I get my old severance, for the Blackjack. There is a hotel as part of the casino, so there may be hookers. (Channeling my inner Bender).
However, the casino thing isn’t all good. Next week, performing at the casino….Pauly Shore. (Cue dramatic hamster music)

Since it’s only my second day here, and I was at the old place for over 3 years, I’m sure it’s just me. I need to adapt to the new environment, but I still would rather have won the lottery, and be relaxing on the beach somewhere while being served drinks by scantily clad women (they’re called bikini’s).

Trump's Clip of the Week

I know that since I've been back (less than a week, I admit), I've had a thing for Trump, and him running for office has only made my obsession even worse. I remember when he first started The Apprentice, he also hosted Saturday Night Live. This was back when the show was funny (I think). I particularly loved this skit The Donald did. This week's clip of the week.

Saturday, August 15, 2015


So here's the problem, with my 4 year hiatus from blogging. I missed some thing. I missed a lot of relevant things, but I also missed a lot of bullshit. Well didn't so much as miss, but never commented on it here. For example. HOW THE HELL DID THE KARDASHIANS HAPPEN?

(Warning, I've been saving this up for years.)

Is the current trend in television today is follow the stupidest people on the planet and make a TV show about them? I don't get. For the record, I've never watched the show. I hear about them online. I see their faces in the bullshit magazines in line at the supermarket, and I think to myself, if you can make a shitload of money doing stupid stuff in front of the camera, then SHOW ME THE MONEY.

Now I'd like to say that I have too much dignity to do such things in front of a camera, but I can be bought (except for the sex tape thing, my self esteem couldn't take the entire Internet going EWWWWW). I can do funny stuff on TV, like drive around town wearing a toilet seat around my neck. I can walk about with a Donald Trump wig (heck, I'm gonna do that for free).  I can get a spray on tan and dress like a douchbag.

Did you know that this person has acting credits. WHAT THE HELL!!!!

I was listening to a podcast, and they were talking about an episode where the sisters were having a competition over who's HOOCH smelled the best, and Khloe was the judge. Really, having to decide which sister has the best smelling....whatever.

This is all Ryan Seacrest's fault. It's his company that put this crap out there, for 10 damn seasons. How can something this dumb be on for this long, and how did these people get so famous for being stupid, or are they stupid?

I keep thinking of the piles of money they all have, and...well I have is a pile of dirty laundry. Makes me think, who's the dumb one now?

Money to burn.

So here's the deal. I was laid off from my job on Tuesday. By Thursday, I managed to secure a new job, starting next Monday, so I'm once again financially secure. Now I have 4 weeks of severance and 2 weeks of holidays to be paid out by the end of the month, but what to do with the money.

Now I've kidded about spending the money on Blackjack, and Hookers, but to be honest, I'm not the casino type. I can think of far better ways of burning money. As for the Hookers, nope. nope, nope. I'd like to think I have more class than. HEY I CAN DREAM CAN I.

My mother thinks I should act in a responsible manor and pay off my debts. PPPPFFFFTTTTTT.

I am on a quest however. I will wonder through the shops in the for a Trump wig. That is a no brainier. I must have the Trump wig. I need the Trump wig. I will become Trump.

The lastest idea I've come up with is a trip to Butte, Montanna, just to say I've been to Butte. I like many immature people like to call it butt. I'm sure that rural Montana is nothing like rural Alberta, and it will be a unique experience like going to Vulcan, Alberta, or Hanna, Alberta.  Sure I can walk around in Vulcan with Vulcan ears, and a phaser and no one would bother me. I might not even be the only one there doing that, since the town is named Vulcan. I could drive up and down the main street of Hanna, blaring Nickleback, and seeing how many people I piss off. To be honest, i have nothing against Nickleback, and I'm happy for a bunch of local boys from rural Alberta to obtain the amount of success that they did.

A trip does sound like a good idea, since I didn't go anywhere this year. Damn you Comic Con, but sense of responsabilty keeps going back to paying down my debt. PPPFFFTTTT. Why do I have to be responsible instead of irresponsible?  Maybe I can put the money to my debt while wearing the Trump wig, but Trump wouldn't do that. he would  just declare bankruptcy....again. Who know that something like this could be such a challenge, a while while I keep hearing this in the backgroup

I want a Trump wig

I want this. I need this. I love this. I want to walk downtown Calgary in front of the oil company high rises and randomly fire people. Then I want to announce that I'm running for Parliament as an independent. Then I want to go to the high end restaurants for lunch, and fire people. There's only one problem, I found this wig on and the seller doesn't ship to Canada.

This is an outrage. How am I supposed to rule over my fictitious real estate empire without a Trump wig? How can i walk into a Calgary casino without a Trump wig?How can I order that my fast food order be "supersized" without a Trump wig?

I swear as God as my witness, one day I will own a Trump wig. I need it for Cosplay.

COSPLAY !!!! That's it. I've been to multiple  comic conventions, and have been teased about my lack of Cosplay, but now I have it. I will be Donald Trump cosplayer.

I like this idea more and more. It was be classy, with little effort. Just war a suit and the wig. 

Now I need this wig to go to 7/11 and buy the most fabulous Big Gulp ever. I want to ride public transit and complain that there's no flight attendant. 

I want to do that while only wearing boxers, and no pants.

YES !!!!

Am I back? I don't know.

I haven't been here in 4 years. I'm not sure if I've been lazy, or just pre-occupied with Facebook, but now I've decided that Facebook is killing my creativity.

I think it's because I'm currently unemployed, I've decided to come back and write something here. I used to have a lot of fun blogging about stuff (or shit, depends on your point of view). Being submerged in IT world for so long, makes me think that perhaps, it was killing my creativity, but hey I had money, and was travelling, so everything was ok, but I don't think it was.

Sure I was posting little bits on Facebook. Posting awesome pictures of my travels, including getting to meet Vicky, and multiple trips to Comic Con, but here, I was creative. Here i was funny. Here I wrote about underpants.

It really wasn't until Jamie wanted a story about my sudden employment, that I realized that part of my brain has stopped working, and I need to jump-start that part of my brain. It could also be the fact that Broom County is back , but only on Facebook. PPPFFFTTTT

I missed writing stuff, stuff I found amusing, and then a day later finding a bunch of spelling mistakes. ARGHHH. Facebook stopped that from happening. I need to change that. I need the old me taking about weird, and random stuff. I remember spending a half hour typing this stuff, after searching the internet for over an hour. Those were the days. I kept talking about raging against the dying of my light. I think it died, but now I think there's a new flame.

I hope there's a new flame starting. Even if blogging isn't as cool as it used to be,

Screw You Facebook.
