LOMAH - Land of Milk and Honey

Just living life here in the Promised Land, Southern Alberta. Where the Mountains meet the prairie in a stunning sunset, surrounded in fields of gold

Kayking - S Bend

An old picture, surfing the S Bend on the Red Deer River with Denali keeping a watchful eye. It was a perfect day, surrounded by perfect friends.

Family in Waterton

A summer hike with the family and Grandparents. It was a typical Waterton day with some wind and sun. Logan hiked the whole way in to Bertha Falls

Loves of my Life

The first two loves of my life together in one picture. I remember when they came into my life, making me whole.

Me in the Broken Group

I think this is my favourite picture from last year. We did a sea kayaking trip to the Broken Group and had 4 glorious days of sun. It was a capped off with the company of great friends.

So I just watched the first of a new series by CBC. It's jPod, based on a book by Douglas Coupland. It's quirky and enjoyable, which makes it worth watching. Plus if you consider that everything else is on hold south of the border, why not watch it? Plus you'd be doing your patriotic duty of supporting Canadia!

*Note YouTube disabled linking so you need to go directly there.

You can actually watch the episodes off the CBC website here. Just click the big red square in the middle if you don't see a link. It's kinda like the red pill. You might not like the truth (witty eh?)

As for the book, never read it but I'm getting interested. I might have to click, buy, own on a future date. In the mean time, here's a description.

"From Publishers Weekly
Coupland returns, knowingly, to mine the dot-com territory of Microserfs (1996)—this time for slapstick. Young Ethan Jarlewski works long hours as a video-game developer in Vancouver, surfing the Internet for gore sites and having random conversations with co-workers on JPod, the cubicle hive where he works, where everyone's last name begins with J. Before Ethan can please the bosses and the marketing department (they want a turtle, based on a reality TV host, inserted into the game Ethan's been working on for months) or win the heart of co-worker Kaitlin, Ethan must help his mom bury a biker she's electrocuted in the family basement which houses her marijuana farm; give his dad, an actor desperately longing for a speaking part, yet another pep talk; feed the 20 illegal Chinese immigrants his brother has temporarily stored in Ethan's apartment; and pass downtime by trying to find a wrong digit in the first 100,000 places (printed on pages 383–406) of pi. Coupland's cultural name-dropping is predictable (Ikea, the Drudge Report, etc.), as is the device of bringing in a fictional Douglas Coupland to save Ethan's day more than once. But like an ace computer coder loaded up on junk food at 4 a.m., Coupland derives his satirical, spirited humor's energy from the silly, strung-together plot and thin characters. Call it Microserfs 2.0. (May)

Curious signage

A friend of mine took these pictures a long time ago. I just recently rediscovered them and felt like passing them along. I feel that each one has a unique element which makes it enjoyable.

short term popularity

Well over Christmas I spent some time digitizing some old VHS stuff that I had around the house. One such items was the movie "Samurai Cowboy" in which I had a small role. I uploaded my section onto youtube with the hope of getting it posted on the blog quickly. Funny thing is the clip got bunch of hits before I could post it. As you can see from the picture it was ranked #1 in Canada (People & Blogs Category) f or a short period of time. Weird eh?

Here is the clip for your enjoyment.
