Sunday Funnies


Where do I even begin with this round of funnies?

Putin dragging away Alaska is one of the best. If he'd take Sarah Palin along with it, I'd call it even. Meanwhile, I'm amazed that so much time has been spent spewing non-news about Malaysia 370. Don't they know what the gossip mongers really want is news about the Oscar Pistorius trial? And good luck with that whole Unity debate thing. (Perhaps you could ask Putin for some advice on that.)

BTW... We're making snow angels again here this morning. *sigh*
No snow angels here. Whew.

Sometimes I think I live up in a screwed up country, but then...I am reminded by your "funnies" that ours isn't the only one in North America. That yours is just as...well...screwed up. :) I won't even touch Mexico. ;)

I think Putin annexed that Malaysian jet. Really.

Nothing like a provincial or federal election to show just how screwed up we are.

In the old days one would say "it sells papers" but in the electronic age there aren't a lot of papers left. Same concept, though. I don't think it's very responsible journalism.

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…
