Brocketologist Kang Chul-su has informed me of a new blog he started, devoted entirely to Brocket 99. If you’ve followed my earlier post, the self-proclaimed expert commented frequently alongside Ernie Scar. The debate got a little heated and inspired Chul-su to start up the blog. There are some interesting stories to be found, such as the love triangle between Lynol, Tom and Monica.
Wednesday March 25th the ULSU presents the second annual Last Lecture. As it was founded last year by the 2007/ 2008 Vice President Academic for the ULSU I thought it would be only suiting to sit down with him, mono a mono, and have a grand ‘ole chat about what he envisioned and how he thinks it has played out. Now, I was just too consumed with this week’s BoingBoing guest blogger to sit down and actually talk to Jason so I just asked Jason to interview himself. The following is a direct transcript of that interview.
Wait, Saturday…and it’s only now Tuesday?! Yes, I’m getting pretty bad, aren’t I? Well a man gets busy trying to track down his money.
Saturday was a beautiful day to break some knees, and my friend Dione was all up for it. We went to the industrial park and shot a few things before drinking a few beers in her backyard, listening to the Chickadees sing. Then Sunday came with its wintery death. Good thing I stayed in that day.
James Nishima, known to many as DJ Booda, is a Lethbridge DJ and promotor. He’s the man behind bringing some of the biggest hip hop acts to Lethbridge in the last couple of years, namely Method Man & Redman, Kardinal Offishal and Maestro Fresh Wes, amongst others. He also hosts “Droppin Science,” a weekly radio show on CKXU from 7:30-9PM.
Plenty of interesting things went on this week.
Last night I took in the final leg of the Highway 3 Roots Review, which featured my friend Leeroy Stagger, as well as John Wort Hannam and Dave McCann. The place was packed in a good way, quite unlike the cuddle party that happened elsewhere.
Yesterday was also the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which saw a couple of things happening at city hall, like a march at noon and open house later in the evening.
Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. In recognition of this day, “Changing Faces Coffee House” will be presented in the City Hall Atrium:
A complimentary evening of music, art, story telling and other cultural experiences
If you missed the Anti-Racism March earlier today, stop by tonight between 7:30 – 9:30PM.
A cuddle party, as described by Wikipedia, allows “people to experience non-sexual group physical intimacy through cuddling.” Tonight’s event provides “tools for better communication and intimacy, and information about the benefits of touch.”
Talk about Lethbian love! Maybe I’ll get some action myself tonight, heh heh.
Sandwich with Emotional Support from Joel Bryant (Joel, I didn’t know you had it in you)
As a kid, there was always dirt under my fingernails and I had a perpetual tan from always being outdoors. That’s because I was lost in the woods and raised by wolves during my formative years.
Growing up, I had the luxury of running around with my friends, exploring my surroundings and gaining valuable like skills, like fighting for meat. It’s a game we’d play.
The point I’m getting to is that I had the freedom as a child to go unsupervised on my own adventures, climb trees, catch frogs, scrape my knees, take risks and learn the consequent lessons from them. I was what some nowadays call a “free-range kid.”

Every city has a scene – some are bigger, some are badder but all a reflection of what that city/town/rural meet up is. Lethbridge, typically thought of as a conservative town, has an incredible “scene.” From Endangered Ape to The Turncoats; The Darby and Joan Club to the Chief Mountain and the White Guy; we have got it all. There is an interesting dynamic here in Lethbridge. We have a ton of musical artists, many who play in several bands, some who play in almost all. A changing face almost every month, projects and sub-projects appear and disappear. There are a few people who really drive it, you can usually tell who these people are in any city. Certain distinguishing marks set these go getter’s out.
