Mail Abuse

Summer is here, take your top off. -My stereo banner, Jeep Country! Got a hair cut today. I am looking at getting a rewriteable CD-ROM for the computer so I can mix some CD’s and finally get all this junk stored away somewhere. It is looking more promising and the pricing seems to have dropped […]

Go Leafs Go

Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence; in other words it is war minus the shooting. -George Orwell, The Sporting Spirit. Go Leafs Go So I am a fair-weather Hockey fan. Barring the natural pride […]

In The Big Inning?

Shake me like an English Nanny. -Stewie, Family Guy. Who cares if Prince William has decided to smoke? What is wrong with Canadian media that they have to shovel such bullshit because they are too shallow and disinterested to report or discuss issue that may require a little thought or the need to take a […]

Tell Tale Signs

I am two fools, I know, For loving, and for saying so In whining poetry. – John Donne, The Triple Fool. I would have to admit that it is about time to get back on the horse. I have been watching from the sidelines for a while, and I am starting to get the feeling […]

Like those nature programs that show clouds in fast forward gathering and swelling into supercells of gargantuan […]

I am the only person in the world I should like to know thoroughly – Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere’s Fan. This is a big day as far as the Happy Bastard is concerned. In as far as the paperwork is done, pretty soon you will be able to get here from http://www.happybastard.com which would be […]

Wh’appen?

  Do you remember how we met, Springtime on the Island of Corfu? – Prozzäk, Hot Show. This week has seemed, at times, to last a lifetime. I know that there are times when I slip away into my own little world and coast by without really participating in the external portion of my existence. […]

Guilt Entry Number Two

  The way she spoke, and laughed at my jokes and the way she rubbed herself against the edge of my desk… – Billy Bragg, Brewing Up with Billy Bragg. I sit and stare at the screen, the pile of unopened envelopes next to me an indication of my nature. Procrastinated bills piling like leaves […]

Guilt Entry Number One

  I wish I could have made you happy, But I’m a bastard. – Simon, Prozzäk’s "Sucks to be you". Maybe people shouldn’t ask me for advice… Hey man, that sucks. All I can say is this, from my recent experience I understand that there are certain times during a relationship when you realize that […]
