i saw you on tv

transparent bowling balls weigh just as much as solid ones
so, myself and craig are walking up johnson st. when we see mo sihota. he interviews us and asks us what our view is on a subject. we were on tv at 6 pm. now, the weird thing is with the New VI .. no one ever says “I saw you on TV!”
..it usually goes more like “Did you see me on TV?” I am still not sure how many people watch that TV station, despite the fact they have some of the best local shows this island has ever seen. sure, the weather report is laughably amateur, but they have some real quality shows such as On Target, Round Table and VILand Voices.
well that’s my point of view, whats yours?

the results

treva can’t believe how hot ryan thinks he is
So folks, here it is, the results:

in case you are wondering what this is all about .. check it all out.
today ryan bought pie and gave me some and paula gave me a much needed massage. that makes them both hot beyond the superficialities of their superior aesthetics. they both get my vote!

smoke and mirrors

port alberni combines the sublime beauty of fish street signs with a backdrop of industry polution on a gargantuan scale.
unrelated: i fell and hurt my neck last night. today i endured it. there are about 3 clinics listed in the phone book for nanaimo, only one of them that i phoned accepted drop-ins, the other one was private and the third didn’t answer the phone. after work, katherine took me to the one nanaimo clinic that i could make contact with.
the clinic was a lot larger than any of the ones i had been to in victoria. i guess with fewer clinics it had to be. my neck had been feeling progressively better throughout the day and by the time we arrived, it was an irritation.
there was an hour and a half wait at the clinic, so i decided that it was probably better to sleep tonight and see how it felt in the morning. i’ll just skip the gym/swimming this evening.
as the media pumps fear and loathing into the masses on the six-o’clock news, the messages from Bowling For Columbine begin to resonate deeper and deeper. it’s pretty hard to watch this stuff, yet things are happening on the global stage that are impossible to ignore. it’s not the same watching the news as it was before though. flipping from news source to news source really reveals some very different views on the situation. one news reporter woman from CNN went so far as to say that CNN’s management might not appreciate her sentiments, but she believes that CNN is being too selective with what they are deciding to show. maybe she saw Bowling For Columbine, or maybe she just sees what Michael Moore saw from the inside. her own point of view.
i have trouble watching western-world television coverage by itself. as much as i don’t support what is going on, i dislike only hearing half of the story from the media. i feel that they should also be showing television stations from The Other Side so that people can really feel informed. yes, the stories will be different, and they will be slanted the other way, but doesn’t anyone else feel that from the two different points of view, it would probably offer any given person a better idea of what is actually going on?

taking a look

jordan is really only high on life.
today i saw a mullet of unbelievable mulletude. yes, i got a good tabloid-like shot of it. it’s sweet, you’ll see.
i don’t much talk about work, but my concern from the beginning of the term has come back to haunt us all like i predicted it would. this concern would of course be: where are we going to have our end-of-term party?
well, we phoned acme. they have a cool downstairs lounge which we tentatively booked. the only problem is that it costs us $200 to reserve the space. the space they will use to sell us drinks and food. 35 of us. does this seem like a bit much to pay to anyone else?

nanaimo by night

last monday i had a walk around central nanaimo when the moon was bright and the clouds were few. before leaving the house, i grabbed le tripod and le canon. here is what it looked like…

bowling with *rryl

we spent several years studying, and finally we figured out how to keep score

movement in still life

the pink ladies show us what they’re made of
yep we went bowling again last night. it was a dress-up err i mean down or something event. most of my team didn’t show up, so darryl the rocker went on his own and recruited two fine ladies by the names of merryl and sherryl to be on the team of *rryl.
the pictures above are all from the first time we went ten pin bowling. last night we went five pin bowling.. which i had more playing. ten pin would have been more fun had i known whut i was doing.
by the way .. if you have not commented on the post below.. time is running out. i will be doing a plus/minus count soon. some time. so yeah, comment!

are these people hot or not?

okay okay, so these people really want to know, and i am not kidding. ryan thinks he’s [bleep] hot, and he asked if he could be posted on my website with the question being posed. so here it is. and paula the potential ninja, not wanting to be outdone by the bluntman, has asked to be transplanted from the last post into this post.
folks, it’s time to do your blog reading duty and answer the question.
here is our first contestant, ryan ‘the bluntman’ blunt. is he hot?

is he a hero or what?
and here is our second contestant, paula ‘the potential ninja’ kolisnek. is she hot?

a potential ninja, paula. you just don’t know.
finally, in the spirit of voting for things, what do you think the word ‘zope’ should stand for? paula challenges the current definition and encourages a movement to a definition closer to the colour of bluish purple that happens only at sunset. your thoughts please. if you ask me, that would be a rather zope colour. haha
okay folks, lets hear what you have to say. just bring it.

djing in march

djing has been really fun lately, and i’ve had some of the best nights lately that i have ever played. well, most enjoyable at least. maybe i have changed the way i think. maybe the nights have been better. anyway, i’ve got photos to remember it all with! yeehaw! the two big dates i have played in march have been at the pressroom in nanaimo with brad copeland and hush in victoria with braeden.
the pressroom – nanaimo:

while i was djing, brad stood behind me and didn’t move for an hour straight. it was creepy.

morgan and dave

davin and emily large it

craig is assaulted by the music!

hush – victoria:

here’s the proof that paula, emily and saila came down from nanaimo for the night
