Inanimate objects of Vancouver

IMG_0992The rock that sits in front of the Library of Langara college is a very curious site. An unofficial mascot of the state of students in the modern age. Boorish, heavy, can’t be bothered to do anything, yet pleasant to look at. In an attempt to seem friendlier to people it had a brief stint with a twitter account. But stopped tweeting when it shaved off it’s moustache. Continue reading

Happy Ink-tober month. I hope we all challenge ourselves to ink a fabulous drawing once a day for the entire month.

What? You don’t know how to draw? I don’t know what month can apply to you then… Rocktober? Shocktober? Drunktober? Whatever it is you’re going to be doing this month, make sure to end it by wearing the SCARIEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME POSSIBLE, and not be this guy.

Now let’s continue with the rest of the blog post, in which I share links that I have either fav’d or RT’d from my twitter feed. Continue reading

Watergate is forever known as the scandal that put an end to Richard Nixon. A break-in at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee that unravelled illegal activity, and Nixon had no choice but to resign.

Since then ‘Watergate’ has become synonymous with american political scandals. For everything else, there seems to be a liking for the later part of the word for anything else that may be deemed a controversy.

Gamergate, celebgate, bendgate. It’s definitely thrown around these days. Sure it sounds like it’s a little out of hand, but there’s been a definite reason for it. Continue reading

It’s a good day for me, aside from being sick I’ve written the last chapter to that book I’ve been writing, so now the only thing left for me to do is edits. Hopefully with that out of the way, I can actually go back to the regular schedule of this website… whatever that may be.

News, anyone? Continue reading

It seems like an eternal struggle with Vancouver teachers just wanting to do their job in the best way possible. A pro-union rally set to take place at the Vancouver Art Gallery this morning was agitated by a group of Richmond parents who appeared fed up with the teacher/government tussle and just want school to start back up again.  Continue reading

It’s important to understand how we actually understand things. It’s fair to say that North America as a continent is sexually repressed when it comes to the rest of the world. We think women are over-sexualized, when in reality we’re over-sexualizing them in our own minds.

But in this day of internets, we rely on images and videos for gratification because we lack the ability to live life outside of our screens. Thus sexuality is reduced to images and we’re putting the female body on an unnecessary perverse pedestal.

But I’m sure someone will end up reading that paragraph and beg to differ.

What a cold and desolate week it’s been on this website. You might have to get used to that for a while. I have the audacity to go back to school for the fall/winter.

To ensure that I’d pay attention to school, my week was filled with unmentionable whatever and a hell of a lot of sleeping. So If you’re asking why there was no SSC this morning/afternoon it’s because I had the audacity to not wake up.  Continue reading
