A Cliched Saying about Cracked Eggs Might Apply to this Rant

Warning: I am clearly overdue for an extremely angry rant. Arguments below are admittedly not well-thought out (hence angry). Tomorrow, I may rescind half of what is here. Blog. Personal rant space. Angry. RAWR! According some recent speculation out on the interwebs, every person in India (estimated population 1.17 billion people) is NOT entitled to […]

Great Big Music

Meant to post about the Great Big Sea concert a week ago but er, life. To sum up: awesome. The boys were well-rested and were just starting to tour again. The music was excellent but the balance was bad at certain points. Sean was drowned out a few times. From our vantage point, Bob was […]

One photo in particular really moved me. The lighting makes the woman’s hands look like those of a statue, every wrinkle and vein seemingly hewn out […]

Follow Your Star

News I’m excited about: DCI just announced that the alumni of Star of Indiana (the same folks who later created Blast) will be giving an exhibition performance at the 2010 World Championships in Indianapolis. Star will be doing a ‘best of’ from their past shows. They MUST do Medea from their 1993 show (the corp’s […]

Fire

I just popped over to the Herald Times Online for my usual local news perusal during lunch and saw this article (must have subscriber access), describing the animals saved (and lost) at Delilah’s Pet Shop (on the corner of 17th St and College Ave) in this morning’s fire. This was the smoke I noticed from […]
