These are not my pants

I have been watching the TV show Cops. Every time they find crack in someone's pockets the suspect says "These are not my pants!". I don't think that is a good defense.

Toronto Police have time to waste

Toronto Police raided Kindred Cafe, a pot-friendly coffee shop in Toronto. They took coffee machines, sofas, even the xboxs, they also managed to take some vaporizers and other "paraphernalia"(NOT A CRIME, FUCKOS!). O.k., so apparently they sold pot cookies too, so lock em up. And that's what they did. They arrested the patrons as well.

This is why people don't respect the police in Toronto. They can't do anything about thugs running around with guns, so they go and bust up a FUCKING COFFEE SHOP! Pigs.

Stay out of the Hot Box, Bacon Badge, it's pot friendly, they don't sell anything illegal. Do your fucking job, solve a real crime.

Santos/McGarry '06

I haven't been blogging because I have been watching the West Wing like it's a full time job. It was on for 7 seasons and I'm just starting the 7th now. I wanted to watch it back in the day but avoided it, cause I didn't want to jump in mid season. You know how it is, miss an episode here or there and then you have no clue what's going on. So I skipped it entirely in the hopes of seeing it one day.

The cast is awesome, Martin Sheen as the Prez with M.S., Rob Lowe is freaking great, but has disappeared after running for Congress. So many cameo players come in and out of the show, it's so funny. There is a deaf woman named Joey on the show and she has a dude who speaks for her, and it's funny cause when I hear him in a scene I am picturing her, cause I'm so invested in the charecters. I really enjoy this show. In the first season the President briefly hessitates hireing a black kid to be his bodyman because of the message it may send, seeing a black man opening the door for him. But then he hires him anyway. Kind of dated now that Barack Obama is President Elect.

Here is a Smashing Pumpkins radio interview from DC. Billy and Jimmy discuss the new Dvd and tour.

Spaceman to drink Pee.

I watched a shuttle launch on Cbc last night. It was live, it was night time. I guess they started doing them at night again. I'm from Timmins but I live in Toronto. If i was to go home for Christmas, it would be a 10 hour drive with snow falling the whole way. Shuttle Endeavor was built in the late 80's to replace Challenger. Now my point is this: I would not accept a car ride in winter in a 20 year old car, so why are these people flying into space in a rickety rocket 30 year old shuttle program. Nasa should get it's shit together and give us some new orbiters already. Once again, these guys are working on the International Space Station, but this time they are installing that machine Kevin Costner used in Waterworld so he could convert his piss into tasty water. Astronauts will be drinking thier own pee. And I no longer want to be a Spaceman.

The Unemployed Jetsetter

I just missed my dentist appointment cause I slept in. I sleep in a lot cause I don't have a job. My old roommate Memo says you have to wake up in the morning and get your day started, do something. I tried it out for a while. Set my alarm clock for a bit and eventually circadian rhythm kicked my ass out of bed every morning. I would go to the gym and get stuff done.

That was before this summer when I went to Timmins with Mike, went to Montreal to visit Dad and see Just for Laughs, went to Sudbury to visit Pepere in the hospital, back to Toronto, San Francisco for 3 weeks getting ready for the Burn, Radiohead, a week at Burning Man in Black Rock City, Nevada. Then Back to Toronto and the Film Fest, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Pontypool. I go to Timmins to visit Pepere Gerry, get back home for a week and then I'm back in San Francisco for San and Linsey's wedding. Finnaly back to Toronto with 2 back to back Samshing Pumpkins concerts.

It's all over. I had a lot of fun, but I gotta pull it together. It's time to start setting the alarm. It's time to go back to the gym(I pay for it!).

My room is not clean, Deidra helped me out, now I gotta finnish.

Time to get a fucking job.

If I can work from now till next august I could pay off my mountain and save a little for the Burn and maybe even go to Tokyo for a Godzilla hunt with Koji.

Smashing Pumpkins Massey Hall 2008/10/03

Smashing Pumpkins Massey Hall, Toronto Ontario 2008/10/03

Best. Show. Ever. I have seen a few Pumpkins shows and this was by far the best. The performance was stellar, all the screams were top notch. Billy came out looking like a golden god with this crazy headdress. It was fun, then he rocked a white zero shirt. So cool. Speed Kills was fucking great. They teased some Tom Sawyer in Heavy Metal Machine, Ginger sang a little bit (Deidra, you were right about the Rush cover, I guess I owe you a coke). Glass was fucking savage! Set the Controls was well done, I had never seen them cover Floyd, it was awesome. A little to trippy for some tastes. They played Eye somewhere in there, but it's not on the list.

At the end Billy thanked everyone, except the dude who was screaming "Cherub Rock" at him all night. He addressed the issue about bitchy douche bags not getting to hear the set they wanted, and Cherub Rock will be tomorrow night.

I love this band and enjoy every song they play. Last week I was lucky enough to see them at Bridge School, and they played two new songs. Tonight I got to see them do a bunch of my favourite songs, Eye, Siva, GLOW, and especially Glass' Theme.

People have to relax about the set lists, be happy if you get to RAWK! Can't wait till tomorrow night!
