Tea & Two Slices: On Losing By Landslides, Silencing Cartoonists And Keeping It Weird
by Sean Orr | Revelstuck2012: Mudslide closes Highway 1 near Revelstoke stranding hundreds of Sled Island-returning hipsters, hardened truckers, just hordes of German and Muslim tourists, and me in what had to be the most awkward situation since they filled the Astrodome with wholesome families and hardcore gang-bangers. Oh well, I guess I lost the job for Restaurant Rumble announcer by a landslide…
Also, is anyone talking about this in terms of climate change? All that melting ice has to go somewhere.
Some good news happened while I was away: DTES shelter becomes permanent. One gang got money to fight the other gangs. This comes despite a report that says the war on drugs is spreading HIV. And yet the most dangerous drug of all isn’t a drug at all.
Speaking of the war on drugs, I offer you this from an anonymous Facebook friend: “More Readings from one of my courses. If I am ever made to read anything written by Mark Hasiuk for “academic” purposes again I swear I will quit. Do some justice to your profession as both RN and Educator and get some fucking reliable sources. Worst term ever”. I think a wee visit to the ombudsman is in order here.
Big Oily Media: Cartoonist says Enbridge spoof pulled under pressure. I guess it makes sense. They need to assuage their guilt each time they print their bullshit on B.C.’s dead trees. Can Dan Murphy please win some sort of award for this?
Canada upside-down. Yeah, no doubt with that refugee bullshit and the whole oceans thing. Also, dear everyone: please print off the graphic and distribute. The watermarks and copyright tags are as beautiful as Canada itself.
As ugly as Canada itself: Arrests at Vancouver casseroles: We need to stand up against criminalization of dissent. We need to stand up the criminalization of dinner. There is nought wrong with casseroles!
Streetcar – A Seduction: Better know a Transportation 2040 proposal: Return of the Vancouver streetcar. Everyone get over to Burnaby Village to learn more. It’s free now.
Not going to happen: Imagineering: A Granville Bridge Greenway and False Creek Connection. Man, are we really going to do this? Is it really going to work? Can we really make this the best city in the whole wide fucking world? #ithinkwecan
We just gotta keep the grit - Waste Coast: The Ultimate West Coast Tribute. Or as Austin says, “Keep it weird”.
