Lousy Riders

They lost to Ottawa, AT HOME!

Lousy Riders.

Well looks like I got a job at the Weyburn Inn, mornings cooking breakfast. YES! I'm juiced.

Still hoping for that job in Regina tho.

I promise you all I'm gonna be doing something entertaining on here in the not too distant future, that is not... me realted. Something fun and... poppy!

So my buddy Jeff is planning a big cabin party in a couple weeks. And apparantly I'm in charge of the "rap CD" for the party. No biggie really... I guess I'm the black one in the group.

So far I got;
California Lovin' - 2Pac
Still D.R.E. - Dr. Dre
Jump On it - Sir-Mix-A-Lot
What's My Name - Snoop Doggy Dog
Put Your Back Into It - Ice Cube

So I need some more.... X-to the Z Xzibit? Perhaps some coolio? GImme some suggestions.

I hate my new job. You have no idea. My sister is giving me this list of mental-mind control shit I gotta do to make the job better. Basically if I buy everyone booze, they'll like me. Fuck that. I should be able to enjoy my job without blowing my paycheque on beer. Fuck that.

If I were ro move here and...

So went out last night and had a great time partying. Great how I'm still at that age where I can round up enough friends on a Wednesday night to party.

I'm really missng my computer. I need to get some shit done, but I can't because my sister has like no software or anything. Plus I don't want to load her computer up with stuff for my projects. Ah well, I'll just have to wait till I can get some stuff put together... and a plugin somewhere.

That's about all she wrote for the mo'. I might do another post tonight, depending on my mood.

Happy 150th post to me!

SO this is my 150th post woo hoo! I'm not gonna do a big review of what I've done these past 150 posts, but you should be aware that I have made that many. I'm planning a big "Look Back" post for the 1 year anniversary in November.

I got a job at the Royal Hotel Bar working in the kitchen. Hopefully it will be a temporary move. I'm just not too hot on working split shifts again.

I've got a new friend named Abraham Taft who is looking to make a blog. When he gets it up, I'll post it here for all of y'all to see, I've been helping him with the template and getting it all set up. Sounds like he'll have a good time.

Posting with web TV

So I'm posting this on my sisters SaskTel Max TV. Fun but tedious with a remote. Just doing it to say I did.

That took 20 minutes.

Monday, July 25, 2005

Well that was painful

WEll here I am, in Weyburn, sleeping on an air mattress in my sisters house. If my life stooped any lower I'd be dead.

But hey, there's hope. I'm gonna apply for a job at PC Place in Regina, move there, become a rich record producer and have sex with many loose women. Should be fun.

For those asking, I did indeed wear the lucky Rider hat. Unfortunately it only works when they show up. I think half the team missed the bus to Calgary. But I'll keep wearing the hat, and soon I'll be wearing it at the first Rider Grey Cup win since 89... we'll talk about '05 for years to come!

Had a real bunk weekend moving up though, ask me about it sometime, I'm always up to tell!

Friday, July 22, 2005

Guess I'm moving back to Weyburn afterall.

Why does Revenue Canada need to know my income last year to change my mailing address... they should already know that.

Check out this panhandling website

Better go clean the basement some more.

Guess Who's a BIG GIRL!

So it's my little sister Shanna's 20th birthday. 2 decades on this planet and all she got was a shitty T-Shirt! This is for you Shan, a haiku about your birthday!

Shanna you're twenty,
make me proud by drinking four
gallons of cold beer.

So that game I showed you all yesterday, there's a new version, check it out here (v.2). no new highscore unfortunately. Here's the designers website.

Thursday, July 21, 2005

Ah crap

So I said to myself that I was quitting Newgrounds. Well I went today and found this. Now I'm addicted to this game. It's like heroin but in game form.

Current high score, 351. Post your scores!

Holy Cow!

So back in May I started a post I thought would be funny. The premise was, it's been 15 years since they madea Rocky movie, it's about time for Rocky 6. So I just kinda let it gel there in my draft folder because I had no idea where to go with it.

Fast forward yesterday morning. My clock radio wakes me up to Bro Jake from Rock 101 in Vancouver. That we get a Vancouver radio station in La Ronge is a post in and of itself. Anyway, what would they be talking about but the fact that Sylvester Stallone will be doing a NEW ROCKY MOVIE! Well christ I thought 3 was alot, 4 was excessive and 5 was just a little overboard. A new Rocky movie and they won't even work on Ghostbusters 3. THE DAMN THING IS WRITTEN ALREADY PEOPLE.

Anyways. Been reading my input on this blog and others from the last couple days / week. Seems I've been a bit negative. Sorry folks, had a bad week and I guess my attempts at humour haven't really looked all that funny in retrospect. My apologies.

Hey all you'se Pilons!

So to anyone related to me that reads this, check out this page;

The Pilon Archive

It's pretty cool. Check out the pinboard map and post where you are on there so they can see where we're all at. Gotta remember to send this link to my grandparents. Seems my Uncle Ken (Dore your Daddy!) already got there ahead of me!

Okay so I was gonna write about my unabashed act of heroism tonight. Ina torrential downpour tonight, I sacrificed my dryness to save a small section of my store. Big hero right? Wrong.

firecheifThis guy on the left there is my dad. Now back a few months ago I did a little campaign to get him elected pope. A pretty funny little moment in my Blogs history, but I think now's the time to show you the "real man" under the pope hat.

Dad's the real deal. Tonight I called my mom to talk about the severe weather we were having up here (mom is terrified of storms and likes to know we're all alive). She updated me on the family including dad's recent string of activity as fire chief back home. It seems earlier this week he was the first person on the scene of a car accident. Out of respect of the victims and their family I'm not gonna go into too much detail, but let's just say he saved a young boy's life, and had to see some terrible things while doing it.

Dad's the real deal.

Sometimes I get caught up in life. I think the things I have to deal with and do everyday are "too much" or are "a pain in the ass". Then I hear about people like my dad who go out there day in and day out, put their lives at risk and deal with catastrophies every day. And dad never talks about it unless he's trying to save someone in the interim (ie, a drinking and driving speech).

So here's to you dad, even though I know you'll never read this. Thank-You for doing what I couldn't do and what millions never even know about.

Chubby GOOD!

In 2000-2001 the internet was a different place. Flash 4 had been released and with it anyone with a cartoon idea could make their own animated shorts. One would think this would breed a mountain of shit (see Newgrounds), but at the time, it didn't. Legendary sites such as Spumco (ren and Stimpy, The Goddamn George Liquor Show), Killfrog (Bad Clues, Ultimate Survivor), Joe Cartoon (Superfly, Gerbil toons and the Blender!), The Romp (Bill and Ted and eeuck... Booty Call), Stick Flicks (JARNAK!), Camp Chaos (Napster BAD!), Icebox (Mr Wong) and many many more pushed animations envelope.

Then as soon as it started it flopped. many like Icebox, Spumco, The Romp and others either ceased to operate or dissappeared all together. The bubble popped and so much good was destroyed or lost.

But a few still exist and I tried to compile as many as I could to give you guys an idea of what there was.

Some were rescued by other companies, others are still in the hands of their creators. Check them out!
Jarnak @ StickyFlicks
Tako The Octopus
Camp Chaos (look for Napster Bad and Nipple Man)
Joe Cartoon.. Sold out, but still there!
Mr Wong - Icebox went tits up, but hey someone rescued Mr. Wong! I think I need to buy this DVD.

If you know of any more or have any cool modern cartoon sites you'd like to mention, comment on them!

My last couple days

Don't really have much to pst, but hey no one else in my blog "circle" has posted for like 3 days, so I guess the ball lies with me.

So Friday as I said was my birthday. My buddy Ed took me out and got me ripped. So I spent most of yesterday hung over. The great part of that is that I discovered something in my unwillingness to leave the couch. On a Saturday afternoon with a Bell ExpressVu satellite dish, you can watch the Simpsons from 12-noon untill 8:00 PM straight through without seeing the same episode twice. Normally I would have gotten bored, but I was too afraid to move.

Went and played poker with the guys from work today. Hadn't played Texas Hold'em much, so I went and practiced at first. Lost all my money last night. Went tonight. Actually did pretty good. I didn't win, but I probably put in the least amount of money of anyone, so that was cool.

Did some packing yesterday and today I threw out a bunch of shit. I am so not prepared to move. Oh well, I'll manage I suppose, I've done it with less time before.

Well off to the sac I suppose... or maybe just watch a movie.

So I'm not Moving

Nope... you heard right.

I got offered a job supervising the produce department at work, and that combined with a lack of any job to go to and the rockiness of my current relationship has made me come to the conclusion that staying put is the best course of action.

A bt of a last minute decision I know, but hey, I wasn't ready to leave town anyways. Maybe I'll head back to town around XMAS.

Some of you forgot to wish me a happy birthday yesterday. Shame on you.

And there's a new Blogger in town, Davage! My old buddy Dave decided to join the fray and his aptly titled blog "CCCP" is ready for review here.

Now I hafta add the bastard to my list.

My parents recently took a trip to Newfoundland. The trip was the first time my mom had flown and upon returning she reglaed us with many photos of ... clouds. Lots of clouds.

Today I've found myself reading several articles on cool cloud forms. Some very cool pictures to accompany them too...

Cool shit. Thanks Boing Boing.

To learn more about clouds, check you local library... or don't leave your ass and check this page.

Fucking Brad Pitt



So I'm working on my portfolio for a job I'm applying for. As per usual, my efforts have grinded to a halt thanks to some stupid minor detail. This time, it's the font. I can't seem to find a suitable font, nor create one to work with for presenting my portfolio.

I wish this shit would just make itself.

Sunday, July 10, 2005

Sorry Folks!

Ok, I know what you're saying... "PILOT THE RIDERS LOST YOUR HAT DOESN'T WORK! " Well here's the skinny. I was waterskiing and unable to wear the hat. I know. I got greedy. I should have been thinking of the team and not myself.

But I assure you that this Sunday.. I will wear the hat all day and during the game. We will beat Hamilton again!

Friday, July 08, 2005

Let's Make this Quick

I'm IN Weyburn

I'm thinking about going to the lake this weekend

I hate looking for jobs

I think I'm a blomic now

My life is a shambles

The Rider Hat worked again this past weekend.

Wednesday, July 06, 2005

Well I'm off again!

Well I'm gonna head off to Weyburn for a bit. I've posted a few pics and journal entries from the trip... AS THEY HAPPENED. So you'll have to go back a few entries to see what I wrote.

I'm gonna FILL my Flikr account this month!

Back From the Wild

So I made it back to civilization. I'm exhausted, dirty and sunburnt, but nonetheless, ok.

I've got tonnes of stuff to put up here, I kept a journal the entire time, but for now I'm tired and just lazy, ... oh and drunk. So I'm just gonna jet for now.

10:30 PM July 1, '05

So we got there. We set up, ate, fished and had a blast.

Rob and I have a fishing contest. We're gonna figure out a system to score fish caught,
Perch - 1 pt
Jack - 2 pt
Walleye - 3 etc...

Current Catch
Me - 1 Perch - take
Rob 1 Perch - release

Tried to fillet the little guy but both Rob and me are pretty much done (gone)

Wow that was weird - done or gone? (Look at the scan to get this joke).

So just in the tent now, seeking refuge from the mosquitoes.

Actual Size ! (see scan)

Mark just stuck his head in the tent and goes with a real big Southern Accent...

"Now y'all get to bed now y'hear. Y'all got a big day tommorrow."

and I went,

"Dad! How'd you get here"

Big Laugh

Now it's like 10 minutes later as it took me that long to write that description. So now we're all just... zoning.

Now Jeff is here.

Ten more seconds.


One, one , one, one ,one ... (it get's a little scribbly here)
