  • Not too scary, so I’ve been told.

    Tomorrow morning I have to go to the hospital for a minor day surgery. Apparently, it is a common surgery where I am basically in and out. Nothing to worry about, so they say. I am not fearful of hospitals per se. The procedure doesn’t really frighten me but for some reason I am a […]

  • Recommended Reads # 1

    I enjoy reading and would like to share some of my favourite books with you. This is the first of what I hope is to be several entries under this header. Heartbeat by Sharon Creech This book sounds amazing! It is a verse novel and at first glance it seems like a collection of poems, […]

  • Spam – What is it Good For?

    I keep an outdated email address that I use whenever I need to sign up for anything on the Internet. I personally don’t use that email account for sending or receiving messages. I only use it to confirm my address for certain websites that require such a thing. I have posted my email on my […]

  • Blog Friends

    How do you thank a friend for all that they do? I know that showing appreciation for regularly daily acts is something that is often overlooked. I want to make sure that I don’t make that mistake, again. I have been blogging just a few short months but I have been fortunate enough to become […]

  • Autograph from a Hip Hop Legend

    This is a picture of the album cover I got signed on the weekend. I got signatures from some legends in hip hop; Masta Ace, Wordsworth, and Punchline. These three emcees have joined forces with Stricklin to form the supergroup EMC. They performed Friday Night at The Opera House in Toronto. I tell you, it […]

  • Internet Privacy

    I don’t think that there is any privacy on the Internet. The Internet is too big of a community that is not sufficiently policed. Anyone can get online and access all sorts of information that I would normally have considered private. For instance, I googled an old acquaintance and found a newsletter from her company […]

  • It Doesn’t Mean Anything

    I would like to comment about the ribbon campaign. You know the one I am talking about, right? The one where you wear a ribbon to show your support of a very important cause. I am being deliberately vague here because there seems to be a new ribbon and a new cause every day. The […]

  • Preserving Memories

    I have written a journal for about ten years now. I think that it is one of the best ways to preserve memories. I love reading old entries and getting transported back into time. Recently, I have found another way to do same thing. I was searching through some old video tapes that I thought […]

  • Secret of Life

    When I was a teenager I had this figured out. I was so sure that I knew what the secret of life was. I wrote about it in my old coiled notebook which was the first version of “Silent Cacophony.” I still haven’t been able to find this book but I have a few places […]

  • Skateboarding without a Skateboard

    Have you seen this new sport? It’s called parkour and it involves running, jumping, and flipping over every obstacle that you can think of. It looks amazing to see people acting like Spiderman by running up walls, jumping and flipping over buildings and anything else they happen to come across. It reminds me of skateboarding […]
