Hanging with Bri

I went to hang out with Brianna today, she picked me up at Mikes. We hung out on her newly finished backyard patio with her boyfriend Chris and her doggy Max.

I was going to go out to see Cayen tonight at co-po's, but Mike and I just hung out here at home with his mom.

Tomorrow I've got to go see my Pepere and Memere, and grandma Frances.

I think Mike and I will probably go out for some beers later.

Marty McFly of Chenier Ave

I am back in my hometown of Timmins Ontario. I'm sitting at Mikey's kitchen table, across the street is the house I grew up in.

Mikes house hasn't changed much in 10 years, I found a PC Gamer CD-ROM from March 1997.

When I woke up in Mikey's basement this morning I thought I had been hurled back in time and was 14 again, but then I remember 9/11 and Micheal Jackson and I was thrust back to the future.

My meager stash will surely be depleted before this trip has ended.

Hitting the road

Mike is driving up to Timmins tomorrow. I'm going to go with him. road trips with Mikey are awesome cause we never get to hang out much.

V from the Con

V called from comic con. She was waiting in line for the Kevin Smith Q&A. She called me back once it started and I listened in to the first few minutes. Pretty cool to hear a Q&A live as it happens thousands of mile away. Kev was talking about Mos finishing his script after the hockey game in Brantford. Keving was shocked that it's an action film and not people standing around talking for 2 hrs, but you don't go where the puck has been...

I don't have sensitive teeth, but I noticed they always mention in the commercial that If you stop using Sensidyne you will have sensitive teeth again. They must have to say that, cause it seems like a no brain-er, stop using it and it stops working.

From Sunnyvale to L.A.

I just saw the Trailer Park Boys on Jimmy Kimmel and it was brand new. So funny. I guess the show will be on in the States on some channel now. I'm looking forward to Liquor Day in September.

The most expensive Poutine of my life

Getting the camp fee for Midnight Poutine is stressing the fuck out of me. Since Matt and Kubi are out the fee is a bit higher and I couldn't pay it in the first place.

My mom's cat swallowed a needle and thread and it cost her and my aunt 2 grand to get it out so I can't ask her for help.

Pain in the neck

Took it very easy at the gym. My neck is still sore from yesterday (but getting better). I used the recumbent bike instead of the upright bike. I am doing some neck exercises to speed along my recovery, I am also using the last little bit of THC Body Budder for pain. It really gets down into the muscle. Green Cross Rules! How did I get it here from SF? This Video may explain:

Cheese Curds at Midnight in the Desert

I hurt my neck at the gym today, I noticed it in the shower but I think it happened when I was doing weights (Seated Row perhaps).

I made a bunch more chilli which should last me all week.

I live on a floor with 3 other guys and the kitchen was disgusting, cause no one does dishes after using them. So the sink would fill up and eventually people started stacking dirty dishes on the floor(and some had food in them). So eventually I put all those pots and pans in a box which sat there for weeks and then finally when the flies showed up, I moved the box outside.

Happy Hardcore confronted me about the missing dishes, we had a spat he threatened to call Sandy (the landlord) which would have been ridiculous and I guess he realized it too cause he didn't. We talked it out and we were in agreement that it had gotten to be a gross situation. It's so tense with that dude. I gotta get out of here or I risk becoming him in about 2 years when I'm 30 and old and out of touch.

Matt informed me that he and Kubi will not be going to Burning Man this year. I'm sad but at the same time it's very exciting. It will be a very different experience from last year. It will be nice to hang out with Matt and not have him all stressed. Plus I can borrow a ton of camping equipment the guys wont be using.

At least now I know where I will be camping:

Midnight Poutine

Direct from Montréal, Québec, the Black Rock Poutine Company presents an amazing Québec delicacy that has to be tasted to be believed. We combine the awesome powers of french fries, gravy, and cheese curds into the ideal late night snack. Come get some!
Hometown: Montréal, QC

My buddy Jody from Shadyvil is in the crew and I just need to get my camp fee. I can't wait cause I love the idea of Poutine on the Playa. It was the part I most identified with last year.
Now I'm going to watch The Simpsons s15 e12 Millhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore.

Bright Sides

I was feeling low last week, but things are looking up. I pride myself on being able to stay positive, and I was being really negative, totally bumming out.


I have noticed a new muscle on my arms, my diet has a ton of protein and the gym is really giving results.

Mom is going back to work soon, and is going to finish my Burning Man coat before then.

Paul got a good job.

My computer didn't die, even with a swig of beer.

I can still see my boys the Stormalongs rock out, just like I did back in the day.

I missed Mr White's Bachelor party, but Mr Orange is coming to Toronto this week!

looking forward to Liquor day

I rocked the gym and met up with Mom who had another appointment downtown. We went to see Bruno, second time for me. So funny even the second time around. Also saw the trailer for Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day, which I closed my eyes for part of so I would be extra surprised in September. I hope it preems at Tiff, that would be so cool. I still have to ask Gmo about Tiff and weather she plans on getting any tickets.

The best sound ever

My macbook booted up, with only the stale smell of beer to remind me of last night's "incedent"(and the slight stickiness on the right side of my keyboard). i pledge to be more carefull in the future, and to use my computer for the purpose of good.

Thank God, mom said she would pray for my computer, I told her god doesnt handle electronics.

I was so panicked at the Stormalongs show last night, worried that I was in for a hefty repair bill. Now I feel so relieved.

Beer me and my computer too

I fucked up and spilled beer into my laptop. It does not like steamwhistle at all. It shut right down. I set it to dry out in front of a fan and crossed my fingers.

My Female Readershp

My blog is read mostly by women. In fact the only people I know read it regularly are women, my mom, my grandma, my sister, my cousin, my ex. Maybe I should embrace my audience and talk about John & Kate plus or minus 8, or how Jessica Simpson just got dumped.

Back at Moms

Mom and I walked to Yonge/Dundas and met Paul at Milestones. Paul just finished work at his new job.I followed Mom back home to Missasauga.

The plan was to record some HowardTV here at Moms house, but I don't have the right cables which sucks. HowardTV is the Howard Stern On Demand television service from Rogers, which has video content from the radio show. Sometimes crazy stuff happens and hearing it isn't enough, you have to see it.

The backup plan is to get Mom to make some progress on my Buring Man costume.

Harry Potter and The Secret to Never Getting Laid

I went to a late showing of Public Enemies with Regimbal last night. The theatre was full of lined up Harry Potter queers waiting for the midnight showing so that they could be even bigger losers the next morning. Some people were even dressed up, which is so fucking lame it hurts. A Harry Potter costume consists of a pair of round glasses, an officially licensed scarf, a magic wand, and terrible taste in books and films.

Public Enemies was ok. Johnny Depp was good, but I saw him in an episode of Sponge Bob last week and was more excited about that. Good to hang out with Regimbal

I have been working out consistently and have been getting pretty hungry so I'm eating lots, but I have cut out the junk (sugar and crap) and eating fish and fruit and egg whites. I'm getting sexy for sure.

Club Nintendo Rules!

I got an email from Nintendo today. They have announced the gifts for platinum status members, which I achieved with the help of Pikmin and a Punch-Out! pin from Paul B. I had a choice between a download WiiWare PunchOut game or a sweet full-size Super Mario Hat. Obvious which one I'm getting.I can't wait to get my hat in November, I'm gonna wear it while I play New Super Mario Wii at Christmas.

Bruno Isht Wunderbar!

Either a 5 mile swarm of bees is aproaching or the Indy race is starting this weekend.

I got an email from Jody about Poutine Camp, the best place for Canada's national dish on the Playa. It looks like I will be camping with them this year at the burn.

I went to the Gym and had a great workout, but I must have pushed really hard cause I had to eat like five times. I'm hungry now, but I'm not eating before bed (hurry up breakfast).

I went to Ryerson to meet with a group of Toronto Burners and newbie Burners for a picnic. It was cool, I saw a few people I had met at Poutine Camp last year, and I met some people who would be gong to Burning Man for the first time. It was good to share information with newbies on what to expect and answer questions.

Marc and I saw Bruno. It was the funniest thing I have seen all year, better then The Hangover. Funny and disturbing all the way through. I will go see it again and again I was laughing so much.

Shit Soul

I made a shit ton of chilli and have been living off the Tupperware remains all week. It tastes fucking awesome, I rule.

I have been going to the gym everyday and really noticing results. I'm going to be rocking rock hard abs in a few weeks.

I'm looking forward to seeing Bruno this weekend with my brother Marc, who lives in North Bay but coming for the weekend.

I have been feeling shitty in my soul. Like I'm alone most of the time and only going through the motions of life.

Scott Pilgrim Snows in July

Scott thinks all Second Cup exteriors lead into the same interior, and in film-making, it does.
I was reminded to check out the Scott Pilgrim shoot down the street from my place. Second Cup plays heavily in the movie, along with some other prominent Toronto locals. The movie takes place over two weeks in the end of winter, thus fake snow and white sheeting in July.I took these 2 photos and then was asked to leave by a mustached douche. I guess I attracted too much attention with my Youtube shirt (He must have thought I was the internet).

This movie is going to be cool.

Tom Green is FINE! Hacked not Beaten.

I posted something from an email I got from Tom Green's website. Apparently he was hacked and it was all fake, which is why I could not confirm it anywhere. I'm glad to hear he is ok. I actually posted it, deleted it and then re-posted it, but now I have taken it down for good.

Since he is still alive we should all check out his website at (If only you had gotten a second chance with Michael Jackson).

I went to see Moon last night with Ian and HP at the AMC. We blazed en route. I used my AMC Movie Watcher Card to get a discount on the movie, HP asked if it was like a Scene Card at Scotiabank Theatres, it's actually better because along with points you sometimes get free stuff. She did not believe me but then I got a free medium coke. Ian was so crazy about getting good seats we were in the theatre while they were still cleaning it out. We were the first ones in and got perfect seats and Ian's coworker Oscar Wright showed up. Oscar is a good guy and seems to enjoy Toronto which is always cool.

Moon was fantastic! Sam Rockwell was so cool playing against himself. Watch the trailer and see how freaking cool this movie is.

I skipped the gym today in order to rest and do laundry(everything is so sweaty). But I went hard all week so I deserve a break.

Howard Stern has been away for all last week so I have been catching up on old shows. I can't wait to go to the gym with a new show tomorrow. I want to get started on free weights to get some serious muscle.

Natalie Brown in my dreams, not bad.

I woke up at 6:30 am with a text message from Ian. After shooting all night the man needs some cheese, so we took a morning drive with a nice smoked Gouda.

When I got back I went back to sleep and had a dream and I think Natalie Brown was in it. I guess it's cause I saw her classic Heinz Ketchup commercial on TV last night. it was not a sexy dream, but I wish it had been. I have had a crush on her since I was like 12. Marc and Chloe took dance at Mick School in Timmins, and Natalie Brown did as well. My cousin Chris and I used to give her standing ovations at the big dance recital. She has been in tons of comercials since then, she was the heinz Ketchup girl who slid the bottle down the table, and she was a librarian in a classic Doritos spot too. Until recently she had a show on CBC called Sophie that was cancelled(sorry mom).

I went to meet Gmo at the mall after her Mac lesson. We had some breakfast and went to the bookstore to find her a photoshop elements book. She noticed a hole in the ass of my jeans and asked if they were my only pair (the other ones have a hole in the crotch). We went to Sears and she got em some Levi's (the official Jeans of Sunny J). Granny Mo treats me so good. I took the train up to eglington and waited for her bus with her.

My workout today was great. I upped my bike ride and worked on my arms. I was so hungry afterwards and in the mood for a chicken Ceassar salad and Pasta. So I went to the nearby Metro, and while there I checked for Grapples (Marc told me about this Grape tasting Apple last night on the phone). They did not have them, but have carried them in the past. I must find this strange creation.

The cute girl at the Beer Store is an Auf Der Maur fan.

Matt & Kubi are actually considering missing Burning Man

Matt and Kubi went to Europe last month and now they are thinking of passing on Burning Man, which would totally suck. I will still be going, I have a ticket and a flight booked. It really doesn't change my plans other than my ride to the playa and my camping partners.

I booked my flight 5 minutes later

Matt & Kubi are my best friends and it won't be the same without them, at all. I really hope they change their minds. I guess no Vibrating Stripper Pole if Matt is out. I seem to get a lot of hits on my blog related to that filthy pole. I think it could get us into a crazy camp, but I can't lug it out to BRC myself. It would be nice to hook up with Poutine Camp, they have cool dudes and sexy women(and poutine on the playa!).

My Burning Man preparations here are going well. I am getting in shape and my body is feeling good. I cleaned my room a bit. I think I can get my mom started on my outfit soon.

Happy Canada Day, Mo-Fos!

I woke up this morning and even though the gym was open 9-5, fuck it, I'm not going on Canada Day. Instead I headed over to Shawna's place to meet up with Cayen and have some beers. Shawna's dog made an attempt on my leg and managed got some pre-cum on my knee.

Cayen and I had a few cold shots and headed to the Skydome.

We met Paul at the Dome and got our seats along with some more beers.

The game was fantastic with some great plays and 2 home runs back to back, and the Blue jays bet Tampa Bay 5-0.

After the game the Dome was closed and they had some fireworks which was pretty cool.

"fireworks exploding in the distance temporary towers soar fireworks emulating heaven til there are no stars anymore fireworks aiming straight at heaven temporary towers soar til there are no stars shining up in heaven til there are no stars anymore"

We went to the Steamwhistle Brewery afterwords where I wished EVERYBODY I could a happy Canada Day!

We went to a bar to have some wings and then we met up with Regimbal.

Shawna got really upset all of a sudden, she was pissed about me bad mouthing her rapist dog. i guess it's true I have been critical of Rambo's advances, but he is always trying to unload his dog jism on me so fuck him. I think she was upset about something else and just took it out on me. I really do like her dog and don't want her mad at me.

My throat is so sore from screaming obscenities at the other team (I can be a drunk asshole).

Back to the gym tomorrow.

I love Canada and I'm so happy to live here and be free.
