Life does not exist

January 31, 2009

Life is just a dreamt up man made categorization. What “life” refers to is something we need psychologically to reassure us we’re somehow more intentional than a rock falling off a mountain. But sadly, we are no different than the rock. The systems that govern the animate and inanimate are identical (more…)

Poor Obama

January 21, 2009

Here he is talking about helping the poor and creating a better country and world, and these wealthy asshole investors pull their money out of the markets. “Helping the poor? whooa, count me out of that whole mess. I’m going to buy into gold or China instead”. These rich people don’t need to give a shit about the economy, no matter how bad it gets someone somewhere will keep producing Rolls-Royces and caviar.

Building Energy Conservation

January 19, 2009

Live in a cold climate, a common cityscape has tall buildings shooting steam up into the sky during extreme cold to vent pressure in their heating systems. Solutions? Build a green roof, seal the structure in for winter, and heat it with the excess steam during cold snaps. You could also process and feed the energy back into the building. Maybe have it turn a small generator that charges the boss’s laptop. (more…)

Toronto Hydro Outages

January 17, 2009

Well, its back to electricity again- my post during the blackout wouldn’t save for some reason? We were without power for 24hrs at a low temperature hitting -20C. Was there a terrible conspiracy here, it all sounds perfect right? Did an alien ship crash in the neighborhood? A wanted international spy was discovered in the area so they cut the power to hunt him down? Maybe a network of computers were becoming (more…)

Theres really not much sense talking to me about new bands and such, i just dont really follow all of that. Hear some when im christmas shopping. . .. So much good old music, just havnt really gotten past it all yet. (more…)

Movie Ratings Insufficient

January 9, 2009

Movies rating systems don’t go far enough. “R” could mean just about anything imaginable might happen in the movie. Sure, you may get a somewhat obscured view of genitalia or the acting is unrealistic, or the injuries and violence seem fake, but narratively, the shocking event has occurred. You may not have seen it happen in real life, but it has been represented in your head. I look at a painting of my dentist, im gonna picture the real dude. I see a movie decapitation, i internalize a (more…)

Blogging, how to get started and build traffic

January 5, 2009


One thing for sure about bloggering, what with the competition, new comers need a good strategy to bring people to their site. If you’ve got an audience already somewhere, use that to get going- hand out your web address at events, to clients and whatnot. Ok too obvious. But if you’re really at scratch, man, you’ve gotta use (more…)

The Bottled Water Scam

January 2, 2009

They recently installed a new bottled water machine at work. $3 for water processed in Europe and shipped to Canada. Next to the vending machine, the other ughhh option, is a water fountain- free, but processed here in toronto and shipped across town. They’re selling the bottled water like crazy. (more…)
