Ah, memories... what an awesome band.

I remember getting totally plastered at one of their gigs in Victoria, with a certain +Dwayne Holmberg​.

Enjoy your retirement, gents, you've earned it.


Facebook post announces influential Victoria band No Means No has decided to exit the stage after a career that spanned nearly four decades.

Sad to hear they're retiring, but they definitely had a good run.

For the rest, all I'll say is I'm glad that was before the advent of social media. Anything more might be incriminating.

Damn, it was fun, though. If it happened.

Waiting for the reviews, but I'm seriously considering the Moto Z Play as my next phone. I currently use a Moto X Play and I'm very happy with it, but these mods are very, very cool.

The mods look really cool, but they sure are pricey!

What a beautiful work of art. Sadly, it's a wee bit on the pricey side, and as +Carina Hunt pointed out, the number of people who would actually get it that we're likely to run into could be counted on one hand.

Ugh, some British Columbians are so gullible.

Clark had no desire to introduce the 15% foreign buyers tax... He own MLAs are on record saying that foreign buyers aren't a problem and that the realty market can regulate itself.

So she finally relents to public pressure, and her approval ratings go up? She gets a bump in her numbers for reluctantly doing what the public asked her to do?

Ugh, as previously stated. 
British Columbia Premier Christy Clark’s approval rating has jumped seven points since her government introduced a 15 per cent tax on foreign homebuyers this summer in attempt to cool Vancouver’s hot housing market, an Angus Reid Institute poll revealed Thursday.

I think its a bogus poll. Our new pc premier had the same type of result. An increase. A pc premier in an ndp stronghold and from what I can tell he hasn't done anything at all and we're well beyond his 100 days. It's convince the sheep day.

I know some people aren't too happy about the whitewashing of GitS - myself included - but looking past that, these little snippets do look intriguing. 
Check out 3 brief, ten-second Ghost in the Shell teasers, which offers a glimpse at the upcoming live action take on the classic Kodansha Comics manga.

To equate the two, even remotely, shows just how out of touch Trost is. What an idiot. 
Conservative Party leadership hopeful Brad Trost spoke at an event in Toronto Wednesday protesting the new Ontario sexual education curriculum, during which he drew comparisons between the curriculum and residential schools for Indigenous children.

Funny, they've had similar sex ed in Saskatchewan for over a decade. No increase in sex crimes by youths.

This is awesome, and for a great cause!
Usually these shirts are exclusive to 501st members, but for a limited time, and as part of this charity drive, they're offering them to the general public.

+Carina Hunt and I are big fans of the 501st and all the fantastic work they do... this is for a great cause, and you get a wicked T-shirt out of the deal. What's not to like?!

Story
Tagline
"Why is it every time I need to get somewhere, we get waylaid by jackassery?"
Introduction
Information professional; husband; father; pack mule... And Canadian.

Interests:
I love sci-fi and fantasy games, movies, books, and everything in between.

Politics:
I try to maintain an open mind, but for the most part I'm left-leaning; that said, I don't necessarily support any particular political party, and I'm critical of all of them. I'm also very passionate about privacy rights, and transparent and responsible government.

Religion / Philosophy:
I'm an atheist (apatheist to be exact), but I tend towards a "live and let live" approach to religion and philosophy. So long as you respect my beliefs I'll respect yours... assuming your beliefs aren't completely nuts or in any way infringe upon my rights and freedoms.
That said, for me, science and logic trump belief and ideology every time.

My Rules:
  • I do not tolerate rude, obnoxious or offensive comments on my posts.
  • I will not tolerate anyone using my posts for their personal soapbox or to push their own agendas.
  • I will not tolerate insults or personal attacks on any of my circled friends.
  • I will not tolerate trollish posts, intended for no reason than to irritate other posters or stir up trouble, or inane comments that add nothing to an ongoing discussion.

These types of behaviour will result in your post being deleted and / or you getting blocked.

In addition, if you show up to comment on any of my posts, and you're nothing more than a blue head with little to no content or information on your profile, expect to be ignored at the very least, or have your comment deleted.

Note:
While I expect others to respect the rules as they are laid out above, I am not beholden to them. What's the point of having a social media page if I can't use it as an excuse to be a hypocrite? ;-)

I married a woman as geeky as me.
