QUOTE OF THE DAY : "The Bible was written by the same people who said the Earth was flat." - Unknown

SONG OF THE DAY : Nine Inch Nails - Closer


If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour!

Welcome to the internet my friends.

Busy week. In that I did a whole lot of nothing. Good old reading week.

A time when you commit to reading stuff for school in preparation for some mid term tests...Butt invariably end up doing... well not as much as you'd like to have done.

I used my Christmas gift certificates finally. Max came along on my Eaton Centre odyssey. We came, we saw, we kicked it's ass! We survived the journey into the belly of the beast. American Eagle Outfitters.

As Max says, that place should have a no black people sign. It's the whitest place in Toronto, not a minority in sight. I wanted to vomit in terror while in there. Though I did get a nifty shirt. I Carry No Ca$h, the shirt proclaims...It fits me perfectly because I rarely carry cash.

I had $100 dollars worth of gift certificates at Indigo, which I think I spent well. Bought 2 dvd's, a book and a magazine.

The Wrath of Khan
The Da Vinci Code
Maxim # 75 Featuring the beautiful homegrown Elisha Cuthbert, 24's Kim Bauer. Yowza!

Proof that there is indeed some sort of God.

A good haul, it was like Christmas all over again.

After the Eaton Centre we hit Mountain Equipment Co-op. Max had a store credit there so he had $150 bucks to blow on something. Was it Ultra pants? Or Samurai vests? Or perhaps my favorite Ronin Shorts? No, though they were all available. So to answer your question... I don't even remember what he bought. I think it was some kind of shirt.

If you think the idea of Jesus getting his ass kicked for 2 hours appeals to you...By all means go see The Passion of The Christ. I had the misfortune of seeing this film on Wednesday. It's brutal, and heavily biased of course. I had no idea Mel Gibson was such a whacko. At this point I could begin some kind of anti-religion rant...But I won't. Technically it was a very well made film, visually stirring, and impressive to watch. I can't believe people are taking their kids to this movie. The film is unflinchingly brutal and graphic. Not for the wee ones, no matter how religious your family is. What was made even more creepy, was how silent it was at the end of the film. The audience was completely quiet, and silently shuffled out of the theatre, which was made even creepier is that a lot of people there had the ash marks on their foreheads... They were all like a bunch of crazy religious zombies. JESUS! BRAINS ! JESUS !

Yes, yes you Christians and Catholics all like your Jesus... I have no qualms with him, but his beliefs and teachings have been perverted to such a degree over the years that I have decided that it is pointless to even follow them. The basic ideas of Christianity are essentially common sense things in this day and age anyways. So who needs organized religion? Well people do, because they want something to look forward to after they die. Good for them. I can't join them on that band wagon though, and because of my different views I'm not going to heaven according to them. If I were religious, no God of mine would have that my way or the highway attitude. For shame Jesus, for shame.

It was my Grandmother's 70th Birthday on Saturday. We had a big family gathering at my Uncle's house to celebrate. Good times. I wanted to go to Hamilton afterwards for my friend Johnny's 21st birthday, but sadly, Hamilton is not a place that's easy to get to at 11:30 PM on Saturday night if you have no car. Instead, I headed to Darcy's Winter Blah's party. Good times. I'd be dead and cold in the grave if I didn't get at least a little buzzed on Saturday night.

In other news, I dyed a large section of my hair blonde and gave myself a faux-hawk. You may laugh, but at least I had the balls to try something different. Besides, it looks fine.

I'm just going to finish watching The Lord of the Rings show... I mean the Academy Awards. Wow... They just won... again. They are cleaning up!

Vaya Con Dios Amigos! Wait... don't.
