nothin' special about this pic, except for the contrast. i luv contrast. it would have been nice if i there were more illuminated trees in the background to add some depth. maybe next year. end of self-criticism.
weather doesn't look good for this weekend. so, here's a couple of movies you should catch.
trailer park boys: the movie.
let's see... ricky's still wearing that god awful checkered shirt, julian's still drunk, bubbles' still restoring shopping carts, mr. lahey's still drunk, randy's still poppin' the cheeseburgers...
well, you get the idea. nothing new here with the movie version of the tv show. gnome' sayin'?
running time was about an hour 45. they could have made it an hour tv special and retained the cheap video camera look. gnome sayin'?
however, TPB: the movie is still easily the best canadian movie since Strange Brew of bob and doug fame.
if i catch any of you motherf$#kers busting my balls, i'm gonna wack ya.
ok, you see how this film has expanded my vocabulary.
seriously, you've got to rent this film just to watch joe peschi's performance as ruthless, wacko gangster, tommy de vito. ray "i'm not italian" liotta gave a pretty good performance as well. well i'm at it, kudos go out to martin scorsese's mum.
warning: alot of people get wacked. if you don't like watching people getting wacked rent the sound of music instead.
in conclusion, i can't believe they didn't give martin scorsese best director for this or any of his films...

door knob of the week...
steve wynn, las vegas real estate moghul, is the winner of the golden "door knob" for poking a hole in his 139 million USD picasso with his elbow. congrats! please give generously to retinitis pigmentosa research.
let's play password...
garth turner... (silence)
gaaarth turrrrnnnner... (silence)
ding, ding, ding. you are correct!!!
steve's plan for the environment...disclaimer: i'm not a right wing fascist bloggist.
ding, dong. kyoto is dead.
time to break out the bubbly.
if it weren't for oil/oilsands, we'd all be toast, sitting on a calgary downtown street begging for loonies.
my favourite part of his green plan is the objective of reducing greenhouse gases to 45-65 percent of 2003 levels by the year 2050.
good on ya, steve-o.
if it all works to plan, i'll be pushing daisies by then.

disclaimer: i'm not a bleeding heart liberal or a communist...
here's something to think over this weekend.
i can see similar events or trends happening in canuckistan...ahem, mahar, ahem, arar and assorted security certificate issued buddies.
should be fun this weekend trying to drain my head of radioactive green phlegm and stiffle a wicked cough... it's a pleasure to be alive.
have a swell weekend, my babies.
ps. happy bday to qt!!

bridge on the river bow...
i love fall... until today when the weather turned nasty.
the weather was unbelievable on saturday though. sun drenched and hot. one of those autumn days where the sun's ray pressed down upon your face.
i had to get out.
so, i decided to embark on a BABR (Big Assed Bike Ride). First, i made my way through FCP (fish creek park). gaadd, it's beautiful down there this time of year with all leaves changing. (i'm happy to inform all bikers that the elbow drive parking lot has been officially reconnected to the east side of the park. however, the path system to the west is still in a state of chaotic disrepair. it's still impenetrable, unless you're willing to perform multiple fordings the stream. even so, the paths are strewn with fallen trees. not nice.)
from FCP, i followed elbow drive all the way downtown. i took a break on the path by eau claire. not much happening there except a group of bible thumpers were giving a public multimedia presentation extolling the virtues of their god and the benefits of avoiding the clutches of the devil. it was interesting to watch.
it was funny when their sermons were interrupted by a nearby busker posing as a bagpiper.
c'mon, no one can shout over a bagpiper. ha!
i love downtown.
from eau claire, i plodded along the bow to edworthy park (which is also beautiful this time of year) then up the mofo coulee. from there i dragged my sorry, sore ass home (i was really pooped)
i love fall on the tundra.
nasty, nasty, nasty sunday weather. cold and wet. i'm totally not ready for winter.
i headed down to kensington to meet some old university friends. we all know my friend, ahmed. we were joined by wayne and karen. i haven't seen them in a long time.
well, we met at a cafe, across from the plaza, called higher grounds. i'm sure all my hipster calgary friends are familiar with this establishment.
i ordered a BAC (Big Assed Coffee).
it was alot of fun. i told them they were getting really old. that was hilarious.
we should get together more often.
forgot to wish my jewish readers/friends a happy yom kippur (and a really belated Rosh Hashanah)
while i'm at it, i want to wish my islamic readers/friends (that means you ahmed) a continued happy ramadan season.
note: these wishes are in not in order of importance.
