A Week In the Life of Marcellus Hall

I recently had the pleasure of corresponding with Marcellus Hall, the voice behind the late, great Railroad Jerk and White Hassle(which is thankfully still around). It turns out that he is also an accomplished illustrator. He sent me a link to an online diary he kept for MSN's Slate, which is very entertaining. Wanna see it? Here ya go.

I've Noticed Something...

This site looks WAY better if you check it out through Safari on a Mac or on a PC. Just thought I'd mention that.

The Return of
Oh yeah! One of my favorite sites has returned from the! Now I won't have to pop over to RF Video for their scant newsbriefs. I'm a happy camper.

I just had the displeasure of having Natalie Pollock and her equally repulsive brother sitting across from me. Yeccch.


I've got my sidebar just the way I want it, thanks to Mr. Bowman. Rock n' roll.

Growing Pains 2

The changes are almost done! No more Haloscan, 'cuz Blogger came correct and added their own commenting system. Site Meter is stickin' around, however. I like finding out how folks find my digital desert isle. Also, I have junked the Mondrian/Partridge Family template in favour of "Rounders 2", designed by Douglas Bowman. Now I just gotta figure out how to move the links to the side, and everything will be hunky-dory.
Change is good.

I highly recommend checking out Jean Snow's weblog. Jean is an ex-pat Canuck from Moncton, NB living in Tokyo with his wife Yuko. I first stumbled upon his site looking for pictures of Bob Sapp. If you wanna know more about him, here's an interview he did recently.
I tell ya...I gotta visit Japan soon. I'm like, yearning for a visit to this country.

Random Thoughts

- Props to all the folks who found this site through search queries such as "**** *** nude" or "**** *** topless". Congrats! I hope you found what you were looking for.

- I gotta say I'm really happy that I'm not the only one that's excited about ** *** appearing topless in her next two films. She's fuckin' delicious.

- I need money. Don't wanna work for it, though. Oh, alright...I will. Stop nagging me.

- I still want to change this here weblog up. I'll find a template that suits my needs eventually.

A little copycat experiment...
"I want anyone and everyone who reads this to post in here something they would like to do with me someday, then post this in your journal to find out what I want to do with you."
This was Andrea's idea. It sounded kinda fun, so I was like, "sure!"

Good thing I saved my original template. Change is good, but it sucks when it fucks everything up.
I just noticed how wide pics knock all my info to the bottom. Not good.

Growing pains...

I decided to shake things up a bit, so things are gonna look fucked up around here. Bare with me. If yer out there.

Color me flabbergasted...
God decided to drop a ton of snow on us! Don't get me wrong, I love snow. But this is, well, kinda crappy. I was just getting used to the Spring clothing-to-skin ratio.

Oh yeah...
We've got our websites up, baby! Well...some of us. According to my man Steve Cote, only 10 of them are up(he knows because he bothered to check). At any rate, check the home page, because our sexy mugs are up there. Except that of Chantal Chartier, who's a tad camera shy. It's a shame, 'cuz she's the hottest of the bunch.

There ya go. Just about an hour before all this, I was cleaning up my work era because the muhfuckin' school brass want our shit cleared out like, tomorrow. Hey, I don't like it, but I can do it. I'm not sure about the rest of my fellow students. Some of them aren't even in town and have left shit behind.

Open House: May 6th and 7th
A fun couple of days there. F'real. I gotta give a shout out to Home of Instant Printing for getting my makeshift business cards done up superfast. I really appreciate it, because I was behind the 8 ball to get 'em done on time before the show. Here's what the back of 'em look like:

I used the translator in Sherlock(a Mac OS thing) to generate the Japanese characters for "Sexy Black" and included the Apple disclaimer at the bottom to protect my ass.

As I was saying...Open House was mad fun. The first night was Industry Night, so we all made sure we were dressed to the nines n' looking sharp. There was job potential in the air, don'tchaknow? The girls of my class, that already looked hot were off the chart in hotness that night. Kinda makes a dude like me happy to be alive n' shit.
Later, we were treated to a lecture by Darcy Clarke of Calgary's Push Branding. Admittedly, I was at first pissed off when I found out that he was gonna be our guest speaker, because I never heard of him and his company. That, and I don't think the list of potential speakers I had submitted was even looked at. Whatever. In the end, he won me over. His group's work is quite fun, and it was cool to hear the stories behind the campaigns.

When all was said and done, I don't know if any of us got jobs, but we sure as hell had a lot of fun! After the schmoozing was done, me and a few of my fellow students went over to a nearby studio space (rented by some friends of mine) to chill. It was a lot of fun, just sittin' back, thinking about what the future might hold.

We capped the night off at The King's Head. I got hugs from all the girls. Al was a happy man that night. I think we realized we might never see each other again (some of us, anyway), so we did what we could to make the night memorable. Being that the night was crisp and cool, and I had some energy to burn, I decided to walk home. Best decision I made all day. The strains of Railroad Jerk's The Third Rail kept me company.

Lazy-ass Days.
- It's kinda cool to have nothing to do for once. I just wish the weather was better (Winnipeg is rockin' a post-rain chill. Waitasec...the sun's coming out!) I'm in the mood for some readingbrandnewcomicsinanearbybaseballfield weather. *sigh*
- Spent a good section of the weekend with Sarah. Good times. This doesn't happen enough.
- Friday was fun as I went to my first show in months (except for
Another Bad Creation). I, along with a packed house at the Pyramid watched DJ Brace (TOOSICKS!) kill the decks to win the DMC 2004 Winnipeg Eliminations(HERE is a photo collage of all the competitors with Bracio front and centre). Props to Res One and DJ Ghost for picking up second and third respectively.
- The rest of the weekend has been taken up by watching The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection on DVD. Pure, unending entertainment. I had trouble leaving the house because of this thing.
