Sunday Funnies/Canada Day


I don't get all the Canadian ones. Eh. ;)

But I really liked the Lebron James one. Reminded me of this video:

That video is hilarious. I guess you have to be Canadian to get the Canadian ones, eh?

I didn't get all the Canadian ones either. Loved the NBC cartoon.

Actually, I really like the last Canadian one. It applies to all. And I really liked the Ann Curry one, cuz I had the same thought myself! Please hire me then drop me like a hot potato! And hey, I'll leave for HALF of what you gave Curry.

heh heh

Happy Canada Day! I was once in Montreal for the Canada Day parade and celebration. I had so much fun!

And the NBC comic is a riot. Somebody can pay me 10M to leave, too. I'd be all for it!

I liked the Lohan drone one, myself.

Oh absolutely, I'd take a job to be fired for $10 million too!

Oh we know how to whoop it up, right across the country. Woo-hoo.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
