Deathbridge Derby Dames doing dynamite despite drawbacks

I know a few dames here and there, and some of them even skate. My buddies Belt-Her-Face and Cherri Blaster were on the airwaves tonight, after winning their latest game: EDIT: Looks like Global already took down the video. Boo. Looks like the team roster is shaking up, but they're always looking for more fresh meat (yes, …

Does Snow Removal Bylaw 4865 apply to the city itself?

Something smells spoiled on the southside

Last evening, I was shopping for veggies for a sweet & sour dish I was making for dinner. What I found was indeed sour…spoiled even. Disgusting. And this isn't the first time I've seen something like this at this particular store, which I won't name…but it does start with a "S" and end with a …

Live dangerous, live in Lethbridge

This place isn’t called Deathbridge for no reason. I remember this one time where I was walking down a street and some guy just started shouting at me, “Hey, hey kid!” and I was so scared. Then I shanked him. Maclean’s Magazine released their Canada’s most dangerous cities list last week, grading cities on homicide, …

Trading one superstition for another

The godly folks of Raymond and Cardston have decided that it’d be sinful to hold Hallowe’en on a Sunday, so they moved it a day ahead of schedule. Makes me wonder why they participate in this demonic, evil holiday at all. “…but for them, it’s the way it’s been done, and likely, the way it …

Derby derby derp

To be honest, the Deathbridge Derby Dames kinda scare (and titillate) me. That's because the closest thing to derby I ever got to was running into a tree, wearing my Fisher Price skates. Watch this:

"Cherri Blaster" was kind enough to send me a copy of their press release. Hit the jump to learn more.

The bane of democracy?

I'm not very much into politics, but there are a few things that get me fired up: assaults on education and health care, the environment and copyright reform; all things that Conservatives are slowly, but surely destroying. This is without any consultation or regard to Canadians thoughts and opinions, but rather to benefit large corporations and industry.

I'd like to focus on copyright today, something many of us are not familiar with. After reading the Boing Boing article, "Canadian Prime Minister promises to enact a Canadian DMCA in six weeks," It became clear that our Conservative minority government didn't learn any lessons from the mass outcry against bill C-61 two years ago.

The Tories have shown — yet again — their utter contempt for public opinion and Canadian culture and small business…

I find it upsetting that the Conservatives are pushing this bill so quickly to undermine Canadian citizens, yet again. And you wonder why there's a Pirate Party.

Cinco de Mayo?

It’s official, Lethbridge is in it’s sixth month of winter. Ironic, isn’t it? That “Cinco de Mayo” elicits ideas of  warm weather and celebration. There’s one beverage that, if the weather here was ever pleasant, I could see myself enjoying outside on a patio today: the daiquiri. Did you know that it was Ernest Hemingway’s …
