Vyger


I recently bought a new computer I'm using it right now.

Here's the box it came in, suspiciously large



I found out that indeed it was large, excessively large.

A gif on the Internet is just no way to judge the size of things.


here's a curious thing. The back has two sphincters. If anyone

knows what these are for please let me know.
It seems odd that my computer would have more external sphincters than me.


Here I am at 3 in the mourning waiting for the last program to install.
Why does it still take so long to set up a new computer?
Transferring music and files and programs....
There must be a way to simplify all of it.

An inconvienient joke, funny, drwing title.

I recently watched Al Gore's movie and I was scared to death, so this was the best joke I could come up with.
Here's a drawing I did while watching some of the supplementary material. The section where Gore describes whats happened since the release of the movie and the DVD.

Cartoon All stars and some has beans.

Drugs are harsh!
Feeling blue? Well take a moment or 30min and join all your favourite cartoon characters as they take on drugs, with laughter. It really gets good around 12:12 when crack and ninja turtles show up.
And what did I learn from this heart warming special?

This is going to happen. Soon and without reason. I apologize for the 2-D representation here. Obviously the movie will be in 3-D.







And if that doesn't scare you straight watch this! Though, I can't think of a sexier, more attractive slogan than "THE THRILL THAT CAN KILL" . Sexy.

Alive Chimpanzee!!!, well not really...

I was at walmart over the week end and saw this live in person. This is not a joke and I have not doctored this scan. This is an actual wal mart flyer. So go and buy A LIVE CHIMPANZEE, but remember the warning of Dr. Zaius
"You may not like what you find."

Jeff Bezos

Founder of Amazon dot com and now the maker of the Kindle. What is the Kindle and what do I think? Look below, I do a little routine about it.

What's the deal with the Kindle?






So Jeff Bezos the founder of amazon.com has created a book machine. It’s called the Kindle. I find it funny that it’s named Kindle since it’s basically turning the Book into kindling. It’s, like the size of two ipods and you can download e-books to it and read them. Great. Finally. The e-book gets its day in the sun. But I just have a few questions Jeff.

One, and most importantly can I get it wet? Or more to the point can I wash it? Think about it, I’m making this up but studies show that 90% of people, men mostly, read while on the toilet. Newspapers, magazines, books all on a Kindle and read while on the shitter. Unintended consequence of the Kindle, massive flu pandemic.

Second, why the hell would I buy this? I’ve got a book, I’ve seen one, they seem pretty convenient and simple. Of course I said walking was easy, cheap and convenient before I saw the Segway. Now I can’t get enough of driving around on my two wheeled phallus, douche bag mobile. Which makes me, i guess, a self cleaning dick head. I guess it’s neat to have an ipod for Books. But let me just impart some personal wisdom I’ve gotten from my ipod.

I…don’t….listen….to….MUSIC…anymore.

I listen to random, shuffle. And if I’ve got 200 books with me, I’m reading TWO HUNDRED books! ALL OF THEM! I’m on chapter two. And thank god, because you can buy the books from the device itself, over the sky, thru the ether. Because if I have the opportunity to have 200 books I want at least 189 of them to be impulse buys. A three in the mourning panic buy about me not knowing the Secret! What the H, is the secret!?!?!?! BAM!! I’ve got the book. The secret is…. I suck.

Here’s the thing about this thing. All your books are kept online in Amazon's library. So if you accidentally erase a book you can go and download it again for free. Basically Amazon has become the library. A pay by the book lending library. No more will you be burdened with physical Book ownership. You can fill those “book” shelves with old ipods. And the best part, those books are yours. You can’t lend them to nobody, only Amazon can because of there security DRM software. You could actually go to jail for lending some one a book. The free exchange of ideas? Fuck you.

So Amazon will keep your library, everything! Everything you buy, where you stopped reading how many times you read a book, how much you like that passage about overthrowing the government. And with that knowledge they can sell to you better and make your life whole by knowing what you know. Lota people want to know that. Like the government and corporations. And now they only need to go to one unaccountable source to get it! Peoples Republic of China, I’m looking at you. Get on the Kindle train and keep an eye on those middle class dissidents. Don’t ask how the internet will help the revolution; ask how the revolution can be put down by the internet.

Information is the new gun barrel. Power comes straight out of it and you better be on the wide end with the trigger. Like Google is. Google is digitizing all human knowledge, and some monkey knowledge, Wikipedia is bringing that knowledge encyclopedia to the masses, and now Amazon can sell it back to you. And when all information is digitized, all information is fluid. Change a little code and evolution is intelligent design, Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and Abraham Lincoln was a 10 story high, sun god that freed the Jews. If you think this won’t happen just go and Google News Wikipedia.

BUT as long as people have the facts and truths ,like the earth is round, to build there house on this won’t happen. Right? But, when Google digitizes all facts and truths, who will hold the keys to this kingdom? Google? Amazon? Us? Perhaps I’m over reacting. Google promised to “do no evil” they do good, right? Google am good. Search isn’t privy to human folly. Search wouldn’t lead me to misinformation? Search would die an honorable man. Let me tell you, I look forward, in years to come, when I’ll be reading about this time, sitting in front of my telescreen, waiting for the two minute hate and reading on my Kindle the great History Text “1984”

But I’m over reacting, things change. The Book of course will still be relevant at its core. Weather it’s on a Kindle or paper I can still enjoy my favorite book “The Great Gatsby” with it’s stark tale of carelessness and corruption of a pure immutable dream. I love that book because it’s about dreams, however far they seem they always remain pure. In the distance the Green light we row ceaselessly toward. Jeff Bezos is rowing toward that dream, a dream of information at the touch of the finger. A rich, unsharing, soulless finger. Let me quote from “Gatsby”, I’ll even use a Kindle to call up the quote, because it doesn’t matter what an idea is transmitted on, it still holds the same power, and as long as those ideas survive, as long as you can say two and two are four and people can access the cold hard truth of…. Motherfucker! My Kindle just ran out of batteries!

Jay Z

It doesn't really look like him but Jay Z talking the evolution of rap with Charlie Rose was throwing me off.

Hans Blix, Chief UN weapons inspector during the lead up to the Iraq war
Steve Carelle: He was on for a short period of time and so this one's not quite finished.


Wes Anderson is a hard man to draw.


Michael Hayden, Head of the CIA. You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but choosing a man who, when he speaks his moth goes crooked as if he's talking out of the side of it, is a strange choice for the head of a super secrative covert spy agency.


Elderly Jews need food.



I gave some money to charity last year and suddenly the phone has not stopped ringing with people looking for money. My mail box is filled with charity's giving me stickers and little plastic Virgin Marys. But this is by far the strangest cause I've ever been solicited for.

Vay Cay

I've been out of the provice. On a recent road trip from Halifax to Montreal and stops along the way. But now I'm back unfortunatly. so here are some vacation photos.
This fox is soooo relaxed he's out of focus.
This drawing was done in a resturant called eggspectaions. Unfortunatly our eggspectations were not met.
Let me just say this New Brunswick needs to be shortened. There was a lot of car time.
So much so we decided to stop in a charming town of Edmunston. Where the smoke plums never stop. I'm not kidding it was a little unsettleing.
We also stopped to see the longest covered bridge in the world. It was long, I guess....
Some graffiti that littered the bridge. There's nothing like a long covered bridge to declare that Vanessa Kicks and the date she kicked on.
Quebec City was really beautiful. Though there under the chair pumpkin policy was a little demanding. Also if your in quebec city stay at the Lowels Hotel I garuntee you will not be disapointed. Unless your a millionare in wich case you should stay somewhere nicer, but you can still visit there rotating resturant. Yes, it rotates.
The montreal convention center. Colourful

The view from Mount Royal. Thats what they call mountains in Quebec i assume.
It's a prarie dog.
Some sort of manta ray
Penguins, all animals courtesy of the biodome.
A dinosaur poster from the planetarium. If your looking for a good nap the planetaryium is the place for you. I now want a planatarium bedroom. It's like sleeping under the stars, only as a god because you would control the stars.


That white light in the distance is the holiday inn we stayed at in Montreal. It's in chinatown hence the temple up top. While staying there Miss china Montreal was being held. I won.
Here I am about to enjoy a famous Montreal smoked meet sandwich. Inside I was a lot more excited than I look. I have to qualify that A lot.
And here's my traveling partner. She ran thru new brunswick and so it wasn't so long for her. As you can tell from this NON Doctored foto, she is a fast runner. like Atanarjuat.
Here's a better shot while she sat still.
We drove from Montreal to Halifax in one day, and let me make a suggestion DO NOT DO that. It is a very long trip. Even my suit case was tired. look at that poor guy.
