Saw my first idiot on a motorbike last night. You know the kind. The moron who gives all riders a bad name. Not the dude who has the Cruiser and heads out for a relaxing ride. The one who always needs to show off whether there's anyone around to see or not.
I want to make that point perfectly clear. This is an entry about those idiots we've all seen. NOT, the regular dude who has a little common courtesy.
Well this knob decided that he didn’t want to be behind a car in the right lane at a light. So when the light turned green, he passed. On the right. Not in a lane, just went by the car in front of him (assuming it’s a dude) on right through the intersection. This was at Woodroffe and Fallowfield last night by the way.
I know most who ride are ...
I am a huge fan of the Foo Fighters. Huge. So I thought this was awesome when I saw it pop up in my Facebook feed.
The band has released via YouTube a full concert from Australia they did back in 2011. And it's in HD baby!!!
So my fellow Foo fans, here it is.
I am not a huge fan of Apple or the whole "i" thing. I have my reasons, and they aren't important right now.
This however is an apple product I can get behind. Best Apple parody, ever!
Hi, my name is Scott Lear, and I have a bad case of cabin fever.
It is now Spring, at least that’s what the calendar says. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. I hate winter. Yes hate is a strong word, but it is the right one.
Snow first fell for this winter on November 26th. 114 days ago. 3 months and 22 days. Almost 16 weeks. I’m beginning to think that I’m losing it.
Ah, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have to struggle to see it some days, but there is one there.
The calendar tells me that it is now Spring.
The DQ across the street from the radio station is now open. Patio sets are for sale (even though there’s no place in the back yard for it yet). Soon I will be able to drive ...
Filming has begun on Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Well that's what IMDB is calling it.
From what I've heard the entire original cast has signed up for it, plus a couple of very cool additions. Kristen Wiig, of SNL and Bridesmaids fame, and get this ... Harrison freakin' Ford!!! Has Solo in Anchorman!!!
Here's a few pics from the set that I found on Buzzfeed.
It's supposed to be out this coming December.
The little friggin' rodent let us down again. Big shock eh?
So 25+cm of wet, heavy, slippery, paralyzing snow yesterday. Nice.
Busses stuck, cars stuck, cars abandoned (mine among them) in the snow. Having to push friends, co-workers and neighbours out of the slush and muck that covered the city.
Not to mention the lovely road block that the city plow lay at the end of your driveway. The kind of hurdle that may as well have been made of concrete since it feels like it has the same mass as you struggle to make the way clear. Those of us who have to shovel it the old fashioned way know this all too well.
I mean if you're into skiing, or your under 12, great!
What is that you're saying? "This must be the last blast of winter ... it's almost Spring!"
Let me remind you of the ...
If this doesn't make you laugh, there is something very very wrong with you.
So GNR are jumping on the 3D concert film bandwagon. They shot some footage during their residency in Las Vegas.
Here's what has been released so far.
And I mean that in the nicest way!
Here's the trailer for the new Star Trek: Into Darkness
Christmas is a magical time of year. Especially when you are a kid!
Man I loved Christmas as a kid. The endless toy possibilities!
The rush and the spirit would start (and still does, sort of) with the arrival of the Sears Christmas Wish Book. My mom and I would watch the World Series, she’d be knitting something for someone for Christmas and I’d be thumbing my way through the Wish Book taking careful note of all the cool new toys. Although the Christmas Wish Book was nothing compared to the Consumers Distributing Catalogue!
My favourite toy of all time was the Space Lego I got one year. Man, that was the best!!!
And this was the set that I had. Would love to find it again! I know, look on eBay...
Of course not all toys were winners. There were some real big misses. Found ...
Do any of those involved in the two current labour disputes have any idea what is happening in the rest of the world?
In hockey we have millionaires and billionaires fighting over more money than we the fans can even imagine. That fight is just beyond me, and quite honestly I have stopped paying attention.
What really has me going these days is the fight between The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario, The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, and the province.
Take note I didn’t mention the teachers themselves, just the unions.
The time for the union has passed. Unions had a purpose. What unions did in the past has benefitted all workers in all trades. There are health and safety laws, the 40 hour work week and more.
These same unions however no longer benefit anyone but the unions themselves, not the membership that they are supposed to represent, ...
Do you have one of these in your office?
I will NOT take any responsibility for anyone duplicating any of these pranks in their office.
