#elxn42 ends.
Cons covering their faces,
in shame,
After suggesting
no Canadian could do so,
with pride,
to become one of us.

Canadian Words, eh?

I went down to Timmies to pick up a Double double for my coworker who is on the Pogey so they couldn’t afford it. While I was there I bought some All-dressed chips because my friend dumped my last bag into the Chesterfield after almost spilling their pop. The rain last night was a real soaker, which was too bad because farmers just got dinged by the latest change in programs. The Conservatives should really be turfed out of Ottawa, and it’ll happen if the other parties give’r. Anyway, I was pulling into the parkade at work, but some hoser took my spot. I guess my coworker isn’t going to get his Double double on time. Fortunately I had my bunnyhug on because that cold wind doesn’t feel like a chinook.

The Club: Music

I went to a show tonight with Jesse, after buying a monthly membership at CrashBang Labs (which is in the same building as The Club at The Exchange on 8th Ave.

You can listen to Zachary Lucky online or in Saskatoon very soon.

Dan Geortz was also good. His song about being sold to the circus he footnoted as fiction, especially since his dad was in the audience.

In CrashBang Labs, I watched an iPod get LASER etched. A 40W laser apparently, but it doesn’t work at quite its full capacity, especially at a high moving head speed.

Art in Regina

Last night I attended the graduating UofR Fine Arts students’ exhibitions at the McKenzie Art Gallery. Among them were a hand woven human sized bird’s nest of birch and moss to represent a womb or a cage, also a two layered picture frame mosaic of “artefacts” (I contributed several 3rd hand frames to the project of Caitlin’s), and also a series of propaganda style paintings in Soviet script and barcodes to depict the modern CCTV state of big brother. “For your convenience, all of your precious memories are being recorded.” One had bird poop, or blood dripping onto the video camera lens, and another was two camera headed people talking to each other asking what the other is looking at.20110306_Pic018
