Dec 01, 2004 - A Rehearsal for Murder...

Spitfire


Well folks, I just got back from seeing Dog Pound's performance in the gateway blockbuster "Rehearsal for Murder" at Castle Theatre, and I have to say it wasn't the shittiest play I'd ever seen. And since I've only seen a few plays, that probably means that this was one of the best, right? Anyhow Dog Pound did a great job at his acting debut, especially considering he is currently battling a strep throat infection and I know how fun that can be

I have scanned in and posted the image from the program for your viewing pleasure. Now I'll give you a quick rundown of the plot

Basically there is this crazy playwrite who has this girlfriend who supposedly commits suicide. After a year passes by, it turns out not only does he not believe his girlfriend's death was a suicide but he suspects one of his faithful actors had done her in. Thats right, MURDER. (Do I have you on the edge of your seat yet?). He attempts to stage a mock-play (within the play) re-creating the circumstances leading up to his girlfriend's supposed suicide a year earlier, hoping to catch one of the actors and discover the murderer. However, the play takes a turn when it is revealed that the whole thing was a sham to expose the true murderer who was actually another actor who was hired to play the role of a cop in his fake play. Have I lost you yet?

It doesn't end there. The cast re-appears and does their final bow for applause - I stick around to have a chat with the Pound after the show and proceed to retreat into the main lobby where I enter into a conversation with none other than James MacKay. It occurs to both of us at this point that the play isn't over, and that we are indeed IN the play as we are standing there, most likely on trial for some obscene murder charges we couldn't even imagine. This just freaked the hell out of our beans - in fact even now that I am home I imagine the play continues, although I have come to the conclusion that the true killer was, indeed, Paula.

Anyhow, mystery aside, I was really quite impressed by the Pound's acting ability - especially the fact that he played all of the roles and there was no other cast. Truely amazing. Also I don't think I have ever seen a murder mystery which made such good use of modern concepts such as time travel and ghost-busting.

So that was my quick update, go out and see the play if you have the chance and make your own conclusions!!

Nov 29, 2004 - Wow....barely squeezed in two updates this month...

So...I've been thinking of doing an update for the past week (because I thought I had a lot to talk about) - but it turns out its just me brain writing cheques and my web blog typing fingers can't cash. But thems the breaks. Anyhow, I'm here to clear up some horrible rumors by doing my part - combating them with more rumors.

First of all, yes my dishwasher is broken - and lying in pieces in my kitchen....which I took apart on Thursday and haven't touched since. Yes I put my mouth over the disgusting drain hole in the bottem of the dishwasher to blow out the blockage - but the fact that the dishwasher broke because of a bucket of sand I tried to wash is greatly exaggerated!! It was, in fact, a glass candle holder which had been filled with sand during the hot tub party to be used as an ashtray - and I had dumped most of the sand out, and decided to let the dishwasher to the rest, which I believe burnt out the pump in the dishwasher. In the end, I've got a job on my hands - and to be honest I can't wait to get my dishwasher back to wash some more sand buckets.

Another thing I've been busy with lately is planning this damn Vegas trip. I'm really excited that things are coming together after planning this out like 2 years ago, and its looking like the trip is going to be a lot cheaper than I thought we could have pulled it off for. I've still got to make my way over to wherever the student loans headquarters are and talk some sense into them so that Dallas could make the trip, because he HAS TO COME!! Fuck, come on - that guy taught ME how to forget about school and just go out and get drunk on weekdays! :-). I understand the situation with stupid student loans though, and its sucks bad. Unfortunately the only way we can arrange this so that he can go is to boot Dawn out of the trip. And considering I still maintain that we have always set the date of our departure as "the first week both Kelsey and the UofS are out" - that wouldn't exactly be fair to Dawn. However, bombing the student loans center will comence....or we'll have to work something out. Dallas said there was a 95% chance that he can't come, and I'm counting on that 5%.

In other news - the new years party is taking shape. As of this moment I am assuming that the great I-Gene Leong will be in attendance to prove once and for all that he is still the Sensai of getting down. And to comemorate this attendance, as well as great past memories, I will be having Dawn pose naked ontop of a sweet VAX system, as long as I-Gene can provide said VAX system.

I managed to get my hands on a copy of The Sims 2 the other day and it has had its evil life-sucking hands on my ever since (hence why the dishwasher is still in pieces on the floor). Damn that game. For any of you who were addicted to the first one, you won't be dissapointed - it is much the same, just improved - with many new ways to torture and kill your neighbors. I think there are some other features as well. Either way I look forward to providing the great readers of RBlords with a breakdown of my successful family unit as soon as I've logged some more hours into the game.

And thats it for now - no content for you!

Nov 04, 2004 - A Quick Note...

Spitfire


Just a quick note...the forums are back up and functioning now. I doubt anyone noticed that they were gone, but I had some problems which resulted from the configuring of these forums. As far as I can tell its working now, although I've unfortunately lost all of the custom avatars....so re-add them!

McDonald's has undergone some renovations

I also thought I'd add this sweet picture....I took that yesterday when I was driving down 22nd street. Funny how that place has changed. And check out the house that was next to it. I think the guy who designed MY house must have gone on a bender and designed that other house...perhaps after inhaling a delicious sandburger from the restaurant above??

Hey - I have one other piece of news today, Amazon.ca finally shipped the book I ordered back in July - "Inside Out" - A biography of Pink Floyd as written and archived by its drummer, Nick Mason. This book has been a LONG time coming, as any big Floyd fan would know - the original release date was back around 1988 and it has been constatnly delayed on account of Nick adding more material to the book, revising it, etc. Anyhow the reviews on the book have been really good, and its a HUGE hardcover book with lots of previously un-released pictures so I'm quite excited. I also find it interesting that the Canadian Amazon site has this book for sale now, yet the american site isn't expecting it until April!

Exciting stuff, I know...now its time to mosey on...

Nov 03, 2004 - Does anyone read these anymore??

Spitfire


One update a month, thats my goal...

Thanks to everyone who showed up at my Halloween party this year - it turned out really well considering I forgot to invite anyone (except for the invite on rblords - but who reads this crap anyhow?). I was particularly impressed at all the new faces - namely Wayne/Katrina and company, the UofS Physics crew, Dut, Trevor, and both Cayleys. This party now holds the record of being the first time anyone brought home-still moonshine (thanks for the taste Wayne - and for leaving some behind!). In fact, this party actually holds a double-record - as it was only the 2nd party that YC managed to forget about and not show up to by mistake! He'd better make up for it by coming bowling this friday...

I'm in training this week for work - can't say it was something I asked for. Oh wait, it was exactly the opposite - but I won't get into that. Only nice thing about it is that I get a free toolset to keep and a pretty nice digital multimeter - but so far I'm 3 days in and I haven't learned a single relevant detail which pertains to my work.

Thats pretty awesome, gotta love it when your supervisor just picks something at random out of a magazine because she spent all the actual education funding on herself. . I'm not disgruntled. Hmmm....to be honest I'm turning more and more into the type of employee soul_d has always wanted me to be.

So lets see...what else is new? I've pretty much finished all the drywalling in my garage, I sold the Monaco (for a ripe $200), finished fixing the breaks on Shannon's BMW, pushed the Plymouth outside for the winter and I have yet to drain the carbs on the bike for winter. Pretty exciting stuff, I know. I also bought a bag of 50 gummi treats for halloween and then only had 1 kid, so I've been chowing down on them pretty hard - they go great with that swish that was left over at the party.

Can pants be too tight?

Today, while I was bored during a break in my training, I did something I haven't done for months....I actually visited everyone's blogs. So now I guess I'm up on the times - watch out!!

Shout out to Audiophile for the wicked pumpkins he carved - I've included this picture on the right for your pleasure. If you'd like a closer look, just click here. Now tell me - can pants be TOO tight? I think not. Well....maybe on dudes.

Some good halloween-related bodypaint

I know its a bit late - but look to the left for some sexy halloween-related body-art. You're welcome!

Here's some news: I've recently adopted a new favorite TV series - everyday after work I look forward to watching "Kung Fu - The Legend Continues". For those of you who haven't seen this show, it is an excellent early 90s tv series dealing with mystic Shaolin monks and corny ass-kickings. It truely is a remarkable show - just ask Dog Pound who loves it too. If you want to know more about the show (I know you do) then this is all you have to know (I clipped it from a webpage): "The show usually dealt with mystical shaolin dealings but at times had events such as kidnappings and stopping robbers.". Well said. Kwai Chang Caine would be proud.

A couple weeks ago I picked up my new winter beater - a 1979 Dodge Magnum. For those of you who aren't familiar with this type of car, thats not surprising as they only made them for 2 years - but check out this link to see a picture of what it looks like (same color - but mine doesn't have mags). Pretty awesome huh? Thought so. Anyhow it has a decent 360 motor and a rebuilt transmission with suregrip rear, dual exhaust and a torsion bar suspension. If all goes according to plan, I'll drive this for a winter or two and then transplant the power train into the Plymouth.


Well thats enough about me....if I haven't caused you to flip to another website by now, here are some links to keep you busy care of Blue4130:

- Rafting Tournament on Sex Dolls in North Russia
- Der Schlangemann, the German Ken doll which cums in '3 sizes' - this you have to see

And thats about it for now - I heard some rumour about another party next week for rememberance day - but thats all the details I have. I think its going to be at Dog Pound's house.

Oct 14, 2004 - Has Been?

Spitfire


So....that was over a month without an update, how time flies by! What with a trip to Salt Lake City, workin' overtime, shopping for winter beaters and just generally preparing for winter! Got the boat parked for the season, about ready to pack the bike away in the garage....and a few more sheets of drywall FOR the garage and I'll be done that too. Finally!

The New Shatner Album So...first and foremost - for those of you who don't know, William Shatner released a new album. I was watching Spike TV the other day when I saw the advertisement and just had to have a listen. After all with a nearly flawless stream of reviews on amazon.com I had to! And hey, it's not that bad at all! It's all spoken-word, backed up by such musicians as Aimee Mann, Henry Rollins and Ben Folds and a variety of different musical acompaniment. Some of its funny, some is serious...but its actually pretty good - if you're going to check it out, download the song "Has Been" - it's hillarious. DO IT!! (Also the whole album is available on suprnova.org) - just make sure to run out a buy a copy too :-)

And since we're on the topic of awesomness, what a perfect time to show you this. Nice, huh?

Okay, that was mean....but you deserved it.

Man oh man, I was scrolling back through ALL of the updates RBlords has seen since its birth on March 1st, 2000 - I guess we have a 5th aniversery coming up. Anyhow, there's been some pretty good shit on this site compared to what I post now - really, there was. Perhaps I will have to put together a huge update on March 1st which will celebrate all 489 past updates in all their glory! So I'm sorry for the shitty content lately....well I'm not really, but just pretend I am.

Well since I kinda feel bad for making you click on that horrible camel toe picture, I'll be nice....click your way through the 'Chicks with Guns' pictures on the right at your leisure, I promise there will be no surpirses. And if thats not your thing, how about this joke somebody sent me today which reminded me of Blue4130...

What are 3 things that a woman CAN do that a man CAN'T???

1) Give birth.
2) Have a period.....and
3) Have sex when they're dead!

Now if that doesn't put a spring in your step, what will?
Chicks with guns with guns!

Well I'm running out of steam...I have to get used to actually putting out quality updates again. Well, lets see - Haloween is coming up and once again there will be a bash at my place - so feel free to stop by. There was talk of a theme, but I'm not sure if anything was decided for sure - and I know *I* will just end up putting together a bargain costume anyhow! I don't think that old Superman costume can live another halloween. Anyhow, the party will be on Saturday, Oct. 30th - so be there!

Aight folks, thats all I got....catchya next time.

Sep 13, 2004 - Just a note..

Spitfire


By the way, the other night while I was trying to update some packages on the server I totally screwed up pretty much everything php-related, which includes the gallery and the forums. Gotta love how everytime I do a package update, it pretty much destroys my system. Oh well, in the process of fixing everything I was able to find many problems which lead to this disaster, and as a result we've ended up with a much newer version of the galleries and forums, and a few other utilities too.

And for those of you with rblords-hosted web pages, the stats are working again - and have been upgraded to a new version as well.

Oh, and at popular request - I've removed the awesome Terminator2 midi from the page. You can still run it if you like from here. DO IT!

Sep 10, 2004 - Catching up...

Spitfire


Whoops! Almost went a full month without updating there, don't want to fall into that old groove! Or do I? Really, I'm asking you!

Well, a lot of nothing has happened in the last month. I went through a week-long frenzy of playing Doom3 (thanks to Unit3) but now I've finished that. I finished the book I was reading, so thats done. The weather is still sucking, work is alright. Went to Candle lake last weekend that was pretty cool, missed out on soul_dsoul_d's party so that wasn't cool....but they were nice enough to think of me when they set off fireworks in my backyard and left them lying on my lawn afterwards.

But thats okay, I'll get Unit3 and Blue4130 back on the way to Salt Lake City next week, by forcing them to sit on either side of me during the trip, and then crapping my pants and crying the whole way.

Oh, I know what else I did during the last month - I watched the olympics.....very closely. See the picture on the left to see why. My favorite events included Women's volleyball, women's trampoline, women's mudwrestling, and men's highjump.

During my spare time I also found a rad-ass midi file to attach to the webpage and be played constantly - hope you like it.

Hmmm just read Demoni.ca and it seems Unit3 is pressuring me into implementing some sort of spam filtering software on my server, even though he doesn't have a mail account on my server and I happen to love spam - A LOT. I'd like to take this time to announce that I won't be persuaded so easily - in fact I gave this some thought last weekend at the lake and decided to embrace spam as a friend even more than I did before. Afterall - what has it ever done to me other than fill up my inbox with hilarious penis advertisements and horrible viruses?
ooooh yeah, thats it....now kiss a little....

Oh, I should also mention that I hate Blogger. Why? Because I wanted to 'add a comment' to Fredish's Blog the other day and it wouldn't let me because I didn't have a blogger account! So fine, I signed up for a blogger account - but apparently you can't have a blogger account without creating a blog of your own! Why? Because they're stupid whores. And because of this a new (perhaps the greatest) blog was born - Whorebag.blogspot.com. Keep in mind that this site is now obsolete and is no longer updated. However if Unit3 feels the need to add it to the gateway, he can feel free to use this icon

Thats all I had to say for today - apparently everybody is getting drunk at Dog Pound's tonight so good for us. See you there.
