Not From Toronto

to Stewart, wherever you are

I'm a big sci-fi fan, and have devoured my fair share of science fiction books. Back in highschool my dad saw an ad in the paper for someone selling boxes of old sci-fi books. We went over and purchase three boxes of books from this person. Needless to say, this kept me in reading for a long time. The fact that they were older 70's era books didn't matter at all, they were still quite interesting.

One book from that collection - at least, I think it was from that collection - was about a future where some parts of humanity have developed mental powers, such that a gifted individual could read another's mind. One such character was being interviewed in this book by the media, and was describing what it's like getting into people's heads. He said that the most common feeling that humans harbour is guilt, and lots of it.

And that's where I'm at.

Fahrenheidt 9/11 - where?

I like Michael Moore. Despite not being an Oscars fan, I somehow managed to catch his inflamatory acceptance speech last year, which only further fuelled my desire to see Bowling For Columbine, which I finally saw a couple of months ago. Having whet my appetite with said movie and perused his website,, I'm now really stoked to see his latest Cannes Golden Palm-winning filme Fahrenheidt 9/11.

There's only one problem... I can't find out where it's playing in Canada. Well, that's not entirely true... I know Galaxy Cinemas is showing it in Windsor, St. Catherines, and in two theatres in Ottawa. That's right, nothing in Toronto, nothing in my area... just those four places. WTF? As for Silver City/Famous Players, their website isn't showing any play dates past Thursday the 24th, so knowing whether they're showing F911 (as it's being called), which opens on Friday, June 25th, is impossible.

If anyone has any info about where it's playing in Ontario, please let me know!

what I do

This month has sucked for adding entries here. I've simply been way too busy at work to do much writing, and I've now fallen out of my one-a-week habit as well. There's still lots to write about, but most of it is the stuff I'm doing at work.

Up until now I've been fairly private about personal details. I don't say where I live, or what I do, or name names. Well, as my job is sucking up so much time but is interesting enough that I could write about it, I'm going to formally change my policy and tell you what I do, in order to allow me to tell you what's going on.

A friend of mine recently had to explain me to his new girlfriend. Of course, he summed it up as "another one of my crazy friends".

I replied that I prefer the term "trans-normally biased".

Just wanted to note that. I like that term, and will probably be using it more.

war crimes?

I've been loosely following the goings-on in Iraq as pertains to the US side of the invasion. Well, today I just read this article about how the US has admitted to breaking the Geneva Convention's Treatment of Prisoners of War.

So can we finally get on with it and start prosecuting G.W. Bush as a war criminal? Or should we wait and see if the American people slap him down in the upcoming November election?

random thoughts of the day

It's not even 8am, yet I've already been pondering mickeys and parking on grass. What do they have in common? Nothing, really, except that my brain decided to talk about them today.

not in my house

Not matter how much I want to say it, no matter how I could justify telling you, regardless of whether I'd be well within my rights to tell you, I'll never be able to tell you that I don't want you in my house ever again.
