Brocket 99 just won’t die

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.

If you could only have one more chance to speak?

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.

Saturday shots

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.

Recently on Lethbian Love

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.

Earlier in the week, Jenn moderated the semi-final round of Changing the World: Student Speakers Challenge. She gave us the 101 on the Lethbridge music scene, then went for some poutine to Red Dog.

So as the last of winter is upon us, I thought I’d connect with my friend Dione, escape the ice and get outdoors. I have the pictures to prove it! You have to pay to see the rest.

Virgin orgy tonight

No, I’m not kidding. Tonight at The Slice, random strangers will sandwich each other in a “cuddle party.”

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.

The great outdoors

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.”

Some say party, we say “RD!”

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.
