I'm Back. Rejoice!

Posted by Makaru , Sep 12 2006 · 20 views
I'm back from my vacation. Here is a list of things I bought:
  • Inuyasha Four : Fire on Mystic Island (DVD)
  • Resevoir Dogs (DVD)
  • Goodfellas (DVD)
  • Jaws (novel)
  • Jaws II (novel)
  • Airframe (novel)
  • Congo / Sphere / Eaters of the Dead (3-pack novel)
  • Prey (novel)
  • The Alphabet of Manliness [awesome novel]
  • Countless other things
My mother was driving and she also paid for the plane ticket to fly me back for work tomorrow. She's a card. I also met up with family members I haven't seen in 12 years. Everyone believes that I'm a giant among men (I stand well over six feet tall. A standard for the men in my family, but the women dominate us in population). As soon as my mother gets back, I'll have a bit of a slideshow.

It is also abundantly clear how awesome I am. But that's something I'm saving for a later entry. Now if you excuse me, I have some blogs to whip into shape.


Important Blog Announcement

Posted by Makaru , Sep 11 2006 · 40 views
Public Service Announcements
It has come to my attention that a couple of things are being done in the blogs that need to be stopped. They have always been enforced by existing rules in place, but they need to be more publicly recognized.
  1. Do not openly criticize or insult ANY member
    This includes regular members, the Staff and even banned members. If you want to address a problem with a staff or regular member, take it up with them via PM. If you cannot resolve the issue, then you report to a higher figure and ask them to assist you. And as for banned members, the blog staff have been pretty lax so far. However, insulting or making fun of banned members is not appropriate behaviour, and you will be notified if it gets out of hand.
  2. Absolutely NO leet
    Leet is inexcusable in any form on BZP. This is the practice of using symbols and numbers to replace letters in words. You are not to post leet in comments, content blocks, entries or titles. You are also not to link to sites or pictures that use leet.
  3. No links to outside sites with forums or external blogs.
    This has to do with BZP's advertising rules. The blogs are not your personal advertising posts. It should also be known that external blogs (IE ones not part of BZP) are still forums by definition. This is not as problematic as the others, but it still needs to be addressed.

Canadian Artists That Are Awesome.

Posted by Makaru , Sep 10 2006 · 44 views
Here is a random compilation of really good Canadian artists off the top of my head. They are in no particular order, and is in no way a complete list. The fact that most of these folk first appeared in the 70s and are still touring to this day is proof that Canada rocks.

  • Metric
  • April Wine
  • Trooper
  • Red Rider
  • Prism
  • Loverboy
  • The Guess Who
  • Bachman Turner Overdrive
  • 54.40
  • Rush
  • The Beatles (adopted)
  • The Stampeders
  • Streetheart
  • The Kings
  • The Tragically Hip
  • The Rolling Stones (Richards was made honourary Canadian while partying with Maggie Trudeau)
  • FM
  • Even Worse
  • Neil Young
  • Gordon Lightfoot
  • Randy Bachman
  • Burton Cummings
  • Captain Tractor
  • Kim Mitchell
  • Tom Cochrane
  • Colin James
  • Me



When Hunger Grabs You By The Face...

I'm famished right now. So before I go to work today, I'm going to stop off at Wendy's. There, I'll be getting a Wild Mountain Bacon Cheeseburger meal, double the patties, biggie sized with a coke and a brocolli and cheese potato on the side. Of my large fries.

Why is the Wild Mountain Bacon Cheeseburger so good? Beef, bacon, colby jack cheese and chipotle sauce. This is to the sandwich world what the pizza is to bread and the eggs benedict is to breakfast.

Good times. Sorry for the shameful corporate plug. Actually, no I'm not.



Tommy's Gettin' Made

Posted by Makaru , Sep 08 2006 · 24 views
I'm excited. I'm watching Goodfellas right now, and Tommy just got the news that he was going to be made. He's certainly earned it. I can't see anything that would ruin the day for him.

Anyway, I'm feeling pretty lousy as a result of some things I did last night. I'm hoping I feel a little better soon, seeing as I gotta work in several hours. But that's the price you pay, I suppose. But if things are still all right with some people, I'll be going to another bonfire tonight. Third time this week. I tell yah, very few things are more relaxin than a good bonfire. The crackle of the flames, the smell of good cedar, the warming glow... I just love it.

But remember folks, fire is dangerous. Have a shovel and some dirt nearby just in case. There's no sense in risking a house fire if you can prevent it.
