“Strange Disease”; ‘Hotshow‘ (1998)
CSN:AFU Week Twenty
Web 1.9 And A New Music Page:
It seems to me that this Web 2.0 movement… which seems to have cooled off in the past few months, is all aboot stealing other people’s content, putting a twist on it and hoping to Hell that no one notices the blank space where you’ve PhotoShopped the copyright notice from. YouTube is a perfect example… someone grabs a video off of MuchMusic, uploads it and draws traffic to their YouTube account where they have links to MySpace or Wherever.org where they have a thousand photos they’ve grabbed off of Flickr or PhotoBucket of Random People and their families. Meanwhile YouTube makes billions off that free content for Google through advertising. I was going somewhere with this… Oh Yeah…
I remade my “Music Page“, and by “my” I mean not my music. At the top of each post I leave a YouTube of a Canadian musical artist. So they don’t get lost in the shuffle I created a Page to store them on, but I never updated it because I’m a lazy bastard. So now, if you’ll notice at the top of the page, I have a “New Music Page” where I’ve set up a system based on the easiest archival method I know: Punk, Punkish and Not Punk. Under each video you’ll find links to the artists homepage and someplace you can buy the album. As time goes on I’ll start leaving some Bio’s as well… there are a few up there now. So, sit back and enjoy the work others have created so that I can fill up space on my Blog.

This Week In General:
The week ended with me having… a giant hole surgically implanted into my mouth cavity. This was accomplished by a dentist with really, comically funny, tiny hands pulling a massive molar out of my face. The things they can do with science these days, I think that dentist was part of some kind of tiny-hand breeding program. Anyway… there is now a huge gap in my head. Best joke to come out of that sentence gets an honorary mention in next weeks CSN:AFU Week In Review.
I also got my hair cut so I’m like totally a new human being now. And I managed to get out of the house long enough to buy a new printer / scanner / copier — the last one died after having proved that printer / scanner / copiers don’t fly. Interesting piece of trivia… did you know that when the 3-in-1 machines were first introduced back in 1999 they were originally called “Mopiers”? I think it was Xerox who first tried to use the brand. Also, from what I can remember of those halcyon days of Tech Reporting, the little USB wire that hooks your iPod to your Computer was originally going to be called a “Dongle”. I never reported on Products, my beat was Internet Privacy Stuff, but I just Googled both and I’m close enough.
I got tagged with another “Thinking Bloggers Award” by the person who runs the Sticky Note Theatre Blog, which is cool because I really enjoy his Blog. It was for my Music Page, or at least the idea of my Music Page. Which gave me the impetus to upgrade the whole thing.
I think next week I’m going to try and get back into my original routine of writing aboot Monday’s News again… problem is I’ve lost my PBS station due to some transmission tower accident. I need to get back into the routine again, I’ve been too sporadic over the past six weeks. That’s it… Happy Canada Day.
Oh… wait, there was that thing where I really pissed off my youngest sister because of something I wrote on my Other Blog. I had to shut it down, at least that particular post, for a few days until everything got worked out. Which, I think, is now. I also wrote a post aboot my dental surgery… I took a photo of the offending tooth just seconds after Dr. Tiny Digits pulled it out of head. If you want to see it, here it is [too late, its gone]. Happy Canada Day.

Short Cuts: Canada’s Gay Anglicans Were Sacrificed For Politics Not Religion… Just Like Jesus And Marc Hall
Gay Marriage, as a political issue within the political framework of Canada is a dead issue. We have it, it’s legal, it’s never going away. Within the religious framework, however, I highly doubt it will ever be allowed except through some kind of schism. It isn’t that Canadian Anglicans or Catholics or Muslims or Sikh’s or Whatever won’t allow it, Canadian membership in all of those religions is just too small to have a political voice within those religions. The average Anglican is not White, nor are they European. The Average Anglican is a Black Man living in Africa.
Today 80% of Anglicans are either SE Asian or African and they’re Fundamentalist. Think of that voting power. Think of the Politics of having 80% of the membership of your group ten times more Fundamental than the other 20%. Now think of the actual, physical parts of a Church — the bank accounts, the buildings, the vestments, the land. Think aboot what happens if The 80% Church Majority bans the 20% from using all Anglican Church property and assets in Canada and America and Britain because they don’t like what the 20% have done. Anyway. Read the post, I did a pretty good job on it.
Global Warming, A Movie And Maybe One Short Cut.
I’ve got nothing going on this week so maybe I can get some Blogging done.
you know, reading the review i come to think it really makes sense for a dentist to have small hands. big hand would just get in the way.
i wonder if, as he grew up, everybody used to say “gee, you have such small hands, you should become a dentist”.
i hope the hole heals okay.
and i’d really love to know what an alien needs to know in the world.
I think my new hole is healing pretty quickly… I’m just starting to wonder if eating chips is ever going to be the same. This guy was either going to be a dentist or the worlds greatest watch maker. Number three on that list has to be the most disturbing search term I’ve seen used to get to this blog… the ones used to find [my other blog] can get pretty fucked up. Personally I’d like to know who was looking for information on Canada ruling the world.
