Jun 23, 2004 - Oh yeah....and a comic


Forgot to mention - there is also a new comic today so check it out!

Jun 22, 2004 - Can you say drunken houseboat concern??


Just a quick update before I'm off to go houseboating on the Shushwap until next Tuesday (whoohoo!)...

Hit up Emerald lake with the guys (and Dawn) this past weekend, that was a lot of fun. Sad to see that the Regional parks are joining in on the rape-fest of overpriced camping fees - perhaps that was why there was only one other site occupied the entire time we were out there?? Anyhow, Shea Adonis was out there Saturday night and brought his fishing rod - but he didn't catch anything. Thats alright though I suppose, because nobody caught anything during the fishing derby on Saturday afternoon either (although there were only 2 boats enrolled).

I also attended my little sister's grad on Monday which I thought was a hoot. Seriously, its funny to watch all of the speeches and slideshows and realize how long ago it was that I was in that same situation! Oh the innocence.....and one other thing - I haven't seen that many gorgeous asses in one room for ages. What?!? They're not THAT young!! Either way its the truth! Oh and the turkey was good.

Speaking of grad/school/teachers - many of you have probably already heard of this website, but I finally took a look the other day and looked up some of my teachers and read some of the 'reviews'. It's funny stuff so check out RateMyTeachers.ca. Those of you from Murray might find it interesting that Mr. Njaa is now the vice-principal at Bowman....

I've had a few people inquire about my firebird project recently (which doesn't actually exist yet). It seems there is a concern that I may not follow through now that I have the Plymouth taking up room in the shop. Well....let me tell you, the firebird project is first priority. Soul_D gave me a lecture on the way back from the lake - telling me I have to get a Pontiac 400 for the car if it doesn't come with one (this would be the largest stock motor for the car).
Don't Ask

I believe Dog Pound shares the same opinion...although I always thought the Pontiac 326 was a neat motor. We'll see I guess....there have been quite a few very interesting projects on eBay that would be in my price range...but I'm not getting serious about this until the fall so too bad for me I guess.

Speaking of long-term plans - we must make a trip to Vegas in the spring. I hope everyone remembers that. I'll take care of how we get there (limo) - you guys just start saving. We'll go after UofS/Kelsey gets out so that the students can make it - and it'll be a hoot as well.

Anyhow, I'd better get going to bed so that I can pack my bags tomorrow morning for the trip. I'll make sure to take lots of pictures with Dog Pound's camera! Chao.

Jun 12, 2004 - I always suspected that Bryce Sasko was a fag, but who knew it was true?


Nothing like a miserable rainy weekend to help you put off work that you really should be doing at home. I had hoped to do some yardwork with Dawn, and fix up the hull of my boat (before the trip to Emerald lake next weekend) but this weather is really putting a damper on things. Of course, Dawn still managed to get me to do some landscaping outside in the rain anyhow....which was alright, because cutting sod is much easier (and messier) when its wet. So much to do! I hope Blue4130 isn't drowning in the basement yet.

Tree Humping! I've spent about 8 hours total in cleaning out the Plymouth last week (some with the help of Blue4130 who ripped out my headliner!). Next time I see Dog Pound I'll steal his digital camera and take some pictures of the interior. We've successfully ripped out everything except for 3 of the door panels, but that is only a matter of time. The car itself is actually starting to smell much less like a giant bowl of mouse feces, but the garbage can in the alley isn't so lucky. I've also managed to order some NOS parts off of ebay, like new taillight lenses - and possibly new rear view mirrors...haven't decided on those yet.

Went to two car shows last weekend - the Knights of Columbus show at Canadian Tire, and the Pike Lake show 'n Shine. The Pike Lake show was rained out pretty bad, but there were still a lot of die-hard fans out there checking them out. Too bad Shane wasn't around, there was a lot of good mopar muscle at the Canadian Tire show.

Anyhow, the actual point of this update was to provide my dedicated readers with some actual content for one - like this highly addictive wack-a-mole game. Play it!

Also, ever wonder why girls have two hands? How about why guys have two hands?

There is a new comic today, by a new author - so check that out.

Here's your porn link of the week for all you guys (and Lesbians) out there.

I would also like to announce that the Canadian demo group The Northern Dragons (of which soul_d is a member) - have released their invitation to the 2004 Pilgrimage party. You can download and play the demo here.

This will mostly interest readers who were involved with the demo scene back in the hayday (you know, pre-internet times). Good to know the 'scene' is still alive and kicking. Keep an eye out for soul_d's picture in the demo!
The Northern Dragons

That's probably good for now - thanks to all of you have continue to send me update material, especially the comics....although some of them have been of questionable quality....but better than none! Looks like its stopped raining for a bit so I'm going outside to start drilling rivets out of the side-moulding of my boat. Woohoo!

Jun 04, 2004 - Some actual pictures of the new beast...


Well, thanks to Dog Pound for the use of his digital camera in aquiring some photos of the new 'project'. I'm really glad that everyone seems as excited about this as I am, even Red Bandana and Candice. Thats awesome....but anyhow, here's some pics - you car buffs can click on them for the full list of pictures, but I'm sure you get the idea...

The Beast! The Beast!

Anyhow, this project is going to be really fun - but just so you know, this isn't going to get in the way of my firebird project! At least, I hope it won't - I still really want a convertible and I've been saving my pennies for almost 2 years to achieve that goal!

Dog Pound also called me today to show me the houseboat we will be cruising in later this month - it is supplied by Twin Anchor Tours - and you can look at our boat, the CruiseCraft II, here. Check out the virtual tours - I can't believe there's a wet bar AND a hot tub on the top deck! Kick ass....

So this has been a quick update - but hopefully an enlightening one. Summer is here, lets enjoy it people!

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.

1940 Plymouth Sedan 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.

1940 Plymouth Sedan - Yes, its got suicide doors

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.
