2015 End of Year Memes: Two Tropical Trips, Election Wins & Loses, Campy Camper Camping

1. What did you do this year that you’d never done before? One of many secret shames in that I never learned how to downhill ski when I was growing up.  The first year we did a class trip to Mission Ridge in the Qu’Appelle Valley, I was injured and couldn’t go.  Then the next […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Star Wars Christmas (sometime in the early 1980’s) & Friday Fun Link – “The Force Awakens” Random Thoughts

Not often I get to combine my Throwback Thursday and Friday Fun Link but after making a fairly spontaneous decision to go to a midnight showing of the new Star Wars movie last night, I thought posting this picture was a bit of both categories. I’ll try to keep it spoiler-free as I give a […]

This amazing mash-up has been making the rounds on social media…

Awesome Bike Jumps in Slow Motion

As mentioned in Sunday’s post about our recent camping highlights, here’s a video clip Pace basically compiled himself after I showed him the basics of using iMovie.  This includes adding sound effects, visual effects, trimming some of the clips, duplicating others and more. If you happen to have a Google/YouTube account, feel free to “Like” […]

Friday Fun Link – Funny Shades of Grey

Shea and I may or may not have recently subjected ourselves to one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. We probably should’ve just watched the (honest) trailer and/or some video reviews. Make sure you watch the “Elders React” one – it’s hilarious!

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – BA – English

Often when I’m out at the University of Regina, I’ll wander the halls of the ol’ alma mater to see what’s changed and what’s stayed the same. In a very “Dead Poet’s Society” moment, I came across my photo on the wall during a visit a few years back.  Look at that young whippersnapper, all […]

You Can’t Defend Public Libraries and Oppose File Sharing

Libraries and file-sharing do not differ in principle. The purpose of libraries was – is – to make culture and knowledge available to as many as possible, as efficiently as possible, for free – simply because of the greater socioeconomic benefit of an educated and cultural populace. How is this not file-sharing? Great article that […]

Music Monday – “When the night has come/And the land is dark/And the moon is the only light we’ll see” (RIP Ben E. King)

Is there a better coming-of-age movie than “Stand By Me”?  And the title song of that movie is part of the reason it had such an impact on me. I remember seeing “Stand By Me” in the theatre in Indian Head when I was about 13 years old then walking out into the street and […]

How Popular Are The Various Netflix Original Series?

On the recommendation of a co-worker, Shea and I are working through “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”, a Netflix original series.  (That link will go to Wikiwand.com – a site I recently discovered that presents Wikipedia pages in a more visually appealing, readable format.) Watching that series led me to this article which discusses how a company that’s […]
