(Belated) Music Monday – “Abandon all reason/Avoid all eye contact/Do not react/Shoot the messengers”

I forgot to do a Music Monday post yesterday but it worked out okay because this video showed up in my News Feed today! Most people figured a new Radiohead song/album was imminent as Radiohead, already known for very unique albums releases, had done something very unique in the past few days. In our hyper-viral attention […]

Changing Politics and Culture Through the Art of the Long Game #occupy #idlenomore #saskbookawards

So I’ve been thinking about the “Long Game” quite a bit lately. Essentially, “Playing the Long Game” refers to the idea of not just focusing on an immediate goal but also laying the groundwork for something important further in the future, even if it seems like something unattainable initially. (A similar idea is often expressed […]

My Stanley Cup Picks

I usually post this at the start of the playoffs but forgot to do so this year. But I did honestly make these picks before the playoff began – I’ve got a patron who I often chat about hockey with.  He asked who I was picking so this is what I told him… Bold is […]

Some Thoughts on The Eve of #skelxn 2016 #skpoli

(I have no idea what the statute-of-limitations on being known as a “Meili guy” is but since I was such a vocal supporter of Ryan during the last SK NDP leadership race, I feel obligated to mention that everything in this post in my own opinion, no former Meili team members saw or approved this […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Vegas Baby (March 2009)

My parents won a trip to Vegas back in 2009 which happened to coincide with a week Shea and I had booked off but planned to just spend at home as a staycation. But when we heard their news, we decided it was karma and we had to go with them.  So, along with our […]

Five Quick Thoughts on #skdebate

This debate format is fucking terrible.  Why not just give Wall and Broten boxing gloves instead of having them repeatedly talk over each other for two minutes at a time?  Beyond useless. I’m an NDP supporter but they need to find a way to involve leaders of the Liberal, Green and PC Parties.  Democracy and […]

Music Monday – “Right here/Right now/Watching the world wake up from history”

Barack Obama made history today as the first US President to visit Cuba in 60 years. I was trying to think of a good song to post to commemorate this moment – perhaps a popular Cuban song or a recent hit by a Cuban-American rap/dance artist? But then I remembered this song about the fall […]

Hillary’s Killing It

Results are still coming in but right now, Hillary Clinton is declared in 3 out of 5 “Super Tuesday III” states and leading in two others. It’s not over yet but if this holds, it’s hard to say how Bernie has any path to the nomination and goes forward from here it becomes much more of […]

Candidate Cribs

Can you guess which Presidential candidates live in which mansion?

Live Blogging the Democratic Debate #demdebate

Here’s some random thoughts… I wish Bernie would be more explicit in making some points.  Don’t just mention that you’re 20 points up against Trump in head-to-head polls; compare that to how Hillary does against Trump.  Similarly, when they bring up her delegate count including super delegates, point out that these delegates changed to Obama […]
