|Jun 01, 2004 - Hantavirus car!|
Well folks, I've gone and dragged myself home a whole new project car....a 1940 Plymouth 4-door sedan. This was sort of a spur of the moment decision on my part,
as my uncle dragged this car in from the farm last weekend where it has been sitting for the past 25 years. Once I took a good look at it, I couldn't believe how great the
body was - overall this car is a great start to an interesting project. Anyhow, I don't have any pictures of my actual car, but look below for a picture of a finished version exactly
like to one I've got sitting in my garage right now.
Notice the sweet suicide doors on the back - thats a nice touch. It was also nice to see that there are plenty of parts available on eBay for this type of car - because
its not like you see these things driving around very often. All of the lenses for the signal lights, etc, are glass because plastic wasn't used this long ago.|
Right now the whole damn thing smells VERY strongly of mouse piss, and I think I've contracted the Hanta virus - but I guess thats
all in a days work dragging home a 64 year old car!
Anyhow, there were two other primary reasons for this update - the first and most urgent is that JAMES MCKAYS birthday is coming up this weekend. I'm not sure exactly which day is his actual
birthday, but the party is at Wiskey Jacks on friday. And in case you forget about this - watch this AWESOME Flash Video presentation provided by
soul_d. Boo yeah!
The second reason (well, 3rd actually) is to give overdo pr0pz to Mr. Bryce Sasko for waiting patiently for me to add him to my side bar of links which nobody looks at except for him. I'd also like to mention
that Bryce is having a beer night at Rylys next weekend on June 11th (thats a friday). $5 for a whole shwack of beer aparently.
One last thing...I've got a great new comic from an artist we haven't heard from in awhile...
And thats it! Check back soon for actual pics of the new Plymouth.
|May 28, 2004 - Rblords is now officially Atkins friendly!|
Well, Pike Lake 2K4 is over, and has been over for awhile, so I guess I'd better post an update for those who missed it!
Overall, despite lower attendance this year, I was very impressed by the trip as a whole. At the beginning of the weekend it looked as if the weather was not going to
cooperate, but it turned out to be just fine. There were a lot of parties going on around us, mostly younger kids (I say kids - but I'm talking 19 year olds) but they were great
entertainment most of the time. Also, we had some great neighbors who were much closer to our age who were cool to hang out with. Anyhow, I guess I would have to say the highlights
of the weekend were:
Another nice thing about this year's experience was that we didn't get in any trouble with the COs. In fact, we were asked many times to let them know if the other 'kids' were
bothering us - and I received many compliments on my car. The fact that the COs had no interest in kicking us out also made us feel old.
- Dog Pound bringing out the '74 Pontiac to rival the chauchy Camaros in brake torque competitions.
- The look on the guys face at the Huddle when I showed him my "Huddle" T-Shirt.
- Steven and James getting flashed up close by a 16 year old who was visiting our site.
- Steven and I witnessing a guy getting beat, and then the other guys fleeing in their truck after first smashing it into a tree (turn on your lights before making a getaway at 3:00am)
- Some black dude walking around pissed out of his tree with an almost empty Texas Mickey of Canadian Club.
- Every black dude in Saskatoon was at Pike Lake except for Dut.
- Wrapping myself up in toilet paper and storming down the beach like a mummy.
- Myself and Paula swinging 'Butterfly' style on the swingset = pain.
Of course there were other regular Pike Lake happenings - like the mandatory nature trail hike, breaking into the mini-putt course (which didn't QUITE happen) and spending lots of
time eating greasy food at the huddle and playing old arcade games. Good times. For those of you who want pictures, you'll have to bug Blue4130 for
some as he was the only one with a camera. If he manages to develop some and scan them I'll happily post them - I know it will make The Saint happy.
So anyhow - SUMMER IS HERE! At least it will be very quickly. Soul_d was asknig me about a camping trip on June 11th/12th - it seems thats
about my only option for all of June but its not going to work for almost everyone else. We'll have to see what happens, I really don't want to get stuck not getting out more than a couple times
this summer. Last year that is what happened with all of the weddings going on...|
If anyone is interested in what is going on in my life - I've been trying to get back onto finishing the garage lately. Put some poly up the other day...this weekend I will be wiring a 220 plug, and
finishing the 2nd wall. Still not sure what the situation will be come winter in regards to heating the damn thing, but we'll see what seems practical at the time. If all goes well I could be starting my firebird
project this September/October - so here's hoping!
There is also some work to be done to the boat before it will be ready for this season....I've noticed a fairly significant crack in the fiberglass near the top of the hull which
really should be dealt with before it gets bigger. Also, I need to get the front light working, get a new hitch and get a new tire for the trailer. Hmmm, actually that sounds like a lot, doesn't it? I also
need to scrap that '79 Dodge truck in my garage, hopefully tomorrow, and sell the Monaco. Lots to do....so little time!
But that stuff is boring - and I haven't posted a video for a long time. Seeing as how I've been talking so much about camping, I think this one is only appropriate. Make sure to check
it out, its totally worth it!
And saving the best for last....I was browsing through the Usefilm galleries today with soul_d and discovered a picture which
made both of us crap our pants and roll around laughing for 15 minutes. When the laughing subsided, I proceeded to cry for no apparent reason, and now I fear I will be up all night - haunted by this
disturbing image. And so, with an introduction like that - BEHOLD THE ART.
There is a new comic today....unfortunately. I really would appreciate some better material here, guys and gals. Other than the contant barrage of submissions I receive daily from soul_d like
this and this - I am forced to pick the only other option, which is to contine releasing these
progressively horrible Protein Man Comics. So here you are - the latest and greatest.
And thats all I have to talk about now - looking forward to another long weekend. Yay EDOs!
|May 21, 2004 - Quick Stop..|
Just a quick note that RBlords WebMail is back online. Sorry for the long downtime on that one, I've also switched to
squirrelmail (which should be familiar to those of you who might use pwrsrc's webmail).
Hope to see everyone at Pike Lake tonight despite the shitty weather!
|May 18, 2004 - May Long Weekend Announcement|
Well....its been awhile, but I am forced to make an update for the sake of the May long weekend.
Since only 6 people voted in the forums, and nobody suggested a different location - it is going to be Pike Lake. I hope everyone
can make it out this year, even though I just heard that YC is ditching this year! Nevertheless, it promises to be a great time - at the lake
that started it all, 9 years ago this weekend - Pike Lake.
Hey, remember that site that was leeching from me which I mentioned in the last update? Have a look now that
I've changed the picture on my server. Serves them right. And if you think that creative piece of art is racist, then you obviously don't get the joke. and I didn't draw it either, it was a 'forgotten' comic submission.
For all those trekkies out there, here's an apartment you might want to look into -
and for the low low rate of $1'000'000. (See picture to the left).
For all the rest of you guys who like BOOBS, here's a link for you.
And thats it - come to Pike Lake, have a good time - see you out there (And I'll try to take some pictures this time, at the request of The Saint). I'll leave you with a great pirate joke...
A pirate with a steering wheel shoved in his pants walks into a bar.
The bartender says to the pirate, Do you know you have a steering wheel shoved in your pants?
The pirate says, ARRRRRRRRRR it's drivin me nuts.
|May 06, 2004 - Finally RBlords has made it big time|
Man, I've gotta say - I've been trying for years to get noticed by the likes of Heldvandeweek.nl and
sexy-tipp.ch - and I've finally done it! You will notice that the first link is actually loading that picture directly
FROM my server....the second link, along with many others have realized that I have an open directory of playboy playmates on my server. Apparently this is qutie interesting as I have also attracted the attention
of such reputable sites as DirtyDutch.com, WhatBoysWant.com, PlanetFatty.com, Hosternokke.nl and LegHumper.com. This is just the beginning of a list of over 50 sites linking directly to sexy pictures from previous
So....now that I have all this think of a way to exploit this newfound power.....stay tuned...
But anyhow, that wasn't really the point of this update. I have two things to discuss. First is the significance of this comic.
Second, is May Long weekend 2K4. Thats right, its only a couple of week away and we haven't officially decided where it is going to be. So in the interest of democracy - we are going to make a poll of it
in the forums - so check it out.
|May 03, 2004 - Uptime, Downtime, lets all do some jailtime|
Well - it has now been a full week since Dog Pound destroyed the RBlords server. Damn, give a guy a hammer and
a free bus ticket to Regina and all hell breaks lose!
Anyhow, by the time you read this, RBlords and all associated webpages should be back online. I'm having some issues with ftp right now, so before you write in to complain (Sasko) give
me a day to look it over. It's been a busy past week, and looks to be an even busier summer - but thats all good. I mean, its alright to be busy as long as you're busy being awesome!?
Unit3 has moved to town, soon to be followed by his trophy girlfriend who will also be posing nude on
Blue4130's site in the near future - so watch for that. Also, don't tell her, or Unit3 - because I don't think
they know yet.
Last thursday I attended my 2nd annual Texas Mickey party with some guys from work, to celebrate the regular season hockey draft. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of great stories to tell this year because
I was done and in 'bed' by 10:00 - but it sounds there were a few good times to be had - like Rat getting an atomic wedgie (we actually got his boxers OVER his head!), Scott getting half of his shirt ripped off,
Colin breaking into somebody's house and spending the night on their couch only to realize in the morning he had no idea whose house it was - and Arron losing his cell-phone, then finding out it was left in some guys
back yard, not even close to where he thought he was that night. Not quite the gong show it was last year - but still a gong show nonetheless.
There is a new comic today if you're interested. Otherwise, I'm going to get working on fixing the remaining quirks on the server. In the meantime,
if anyone wants to buy a 1979 Dodge D-50 truck with no motor (but 3 motors/trannys in the back) for $60 - come and get it. Or, perhaps a 1974 Monaco is more your taste?? Only $200!
Think about it!
|Apr 13, 2004 - Quick Update|
Hmmmm....well I started to write this breif update to let everyone know that the server might experience some downtime this week due to a physical move....but it seems now that it won't become an issue until mid-May so
we'll worry about it then.
In other news - I'm on vacation, which is why I haven't updated lately. And today is no exception.
Dog Pound got hitched - so go spend your time reading his mushy girl news
Here's a new comic.
Razor will notice that I DID add him to the links in the left side-bar. Fuck, I'm such a nice guy.
And that's it!
