October Stuff

Squeeze an image/media entry in amongst the seemingly ever mounting SURP work. From the CBC a few days back and while it is hardly an original comparison, I had to insert the images (just because I’m a Star Wars geek). This is an eigenharp, created 2009 and not in a galaxy, far, far away.  It’s […]

More media and planning

Has a profession developed mainstream appeal and acceptance when a music video is created?  Actually, it’s not really about planning – but definitely has a SimCity vibe to it (again, I’m ripping this video off my instructor…I’m very unoriginal). Some one recently asked me if my numerous hours logged on SimCity 2000 back when I […]

Coffee and Gyms

I’m not generally against coffee house background music, provided it adhere within the confines of the term ‘background music, tubed music, canned music or even shit music’.  Several places of coffee persuasion can be found within the limestone quarry of Queen’s campus and the particular one I am patronizing at the moment chooses to play […]

U2’s “One” – Still relevant? Relevant to China?

I’m probably the last person who should be writing about music. I haven’t followed any sort of artist since…well, I’ve never followed any artist. New music? Ha, I can’t remember any album releases since Matt Good’s Beautiful Midnight back in 1999. Actually, I don’t like writing about music as I feel that some of the […]

Drinking in Nanjing

Picked up the latest copy of Map Magazine at Skyways today. I had the pleasure of reading an absolute gem of an interview with one of Nanjing’s apparent foremost ‘foreign bar manager’. It wasn’t so much the writing, nor was it the interviewer that bothered me enough to cut short and afternoon of errands and […]

Tuned Out

I went to a Halloween Party put on by two FT’s for their students at NNU. They had set up a haunted house (ie. Dark room with spaghetti, peeled grapes and spooky music). Anyways, I was appointed, along with another FT, the task of scaring the shit out of groups of unsuspecting Chinese English students. […]

Slow Speed

I’ve almost got all my photos from last weekend resized, optimized and embedded into my webpage. I was hoping to have them up tonight, but it would seem that my high speed ADSL connection, isn’t really as high speed as I would have hoped. I’d say it is about the same speed as dial up…except […]

Star Trek Test

K, this Myers-Briggs test is for the geeks…. My results. Myers-Briggs would say that you are an INTP (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinker, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Worf. People like you are generally quiet until you have something important to say. You are extremely independent and fiercely private. You’re […]

Musical Muse

I was introduced to this song this summer driving around the endless logging roads of Northern B.C. hunting for clearcuts. And The Band Played Waltzing Mathilda – The Pogues When I was a young man, I carried my pack, and I lived the free live of the rover. From the muddy green basin to the […]

“Free drinks for foreigners”

“What?” Yeah, but I’ll get to that later. Two weeks of teaching now under my belt, well three if you count the one week practicum I had way back in May. I am noticing that the preparation is becoming easier. I had to play catch up for the previous two weeks. Oral IELTS is my […]


After surfing around the thirty five or so channels I receive in my room, I’ve learned the following… 1. Oil of Olay has cornered the ‘turn your skin white’ market in China. 2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have found a new home. 3. “Mr. Sparkle detergent” style advertisments are not found just in Japan. 4. […]

Uh Oh

The 80’s are back…with a vengeance, We are all doomed.
