Damn is it good to be home – Euro Trip Part I

September 20th, 2007 | Category: Euro Trip,Random,Rants

I’m back from Europe.  Don’t lie, I know you missed me.  This morning I willingly woke up at 5am.  Of course, I’m still on Europe time so for me it was like 11 am.  Travelling is fun and the trip was great but I must say that I’m a homebody by nature and the best […]


Berlin Buddy Bears – Euro Trip part II

September 21st, 2007 | Category: Euro Trip,Random,Rants

We spent the next 4 days walking around Berlin. What a great city. It was so clean and the air was very fresh despite the many smokers. It didn’t rain again and though it was a bit chilly at times it was usually ideal walking weather. Everywhere we went we discovered a new cool place. […]

Beer and the Berlin Wall – Euro Trip Part III

September 21st, 2007 | Category: Euro Trip,Random,Rants

The city has evidently undergone much recent construction since the fall of the Berlin wall and one can no longer tell the difference between East and West. There are new buildings everywhere. However, remnants of the old remain and all along the ground, there is a line demarking where the wall used to be. It […]


Praha Very Shit – Euro Trip Part IV

September 21st, 2007 | Category: Euro Trip,Random,Rants

Again, we couldn’t help but compare Prague to Berlin. While the hotel in Berlin was lovely, the one in Prague was rather gross. It was kind of grimy and decorated rather depressingly. The bathroom was ok though, except for some reason you had to climb into the strangely high bathtub, and the soap holder had […]

Czech Smarties – Euro Trip Part V

September 21st, 2007 | Category: Euro Trip,Random,Rants

The outskirts of Prague were much less crowded and one could better appreciate the architecture. We started noticing all the crazy detail on buildings. Ornate doors and windows and frescos and mosaics. Beautiful. The restaurants were now much cheaper as well. We tried kangaroo meat at an Australian pub and Phil wolfed down half of […]

You’re Canadian! – Euro Trip Part VI

September 21st, 2007 | Category: Euro Trip,Random,Rants

We went on a ghost tour, which was cheesy but amusing if only because the guide kept trying to justify himself to us. He was American and very glad to meet Canadians. Before the tour a Czech woman from a rival tour gave him shit for encroaching on her business. They got into an argument […]

Damn this shit takes time! – Warning: massive rant ahead

October 18th, 2007 | Category: Random,Rants

I hope my regular readers (all 2 ½ of you) don’t forget about this blog due to the infrequency of my posting. From the start I wanted this blog to be more about my art than my life, so I refrain from blogging about my day to day rituals or my thoughts on political issues. […]


To type or not to type…

October 26th, 2007 | Category: Random,Rants

Yeah so, this carpal tunnel syndrome deal really hurts. It hurts to a surprising degree. I’ve sprained my wrist before and this is more painful. Actually, I’m not convinced it actually is carpal tunnel. I’ve looked it up on wiki and my symptoms don’t exactly match up but I’m pretty sure it is a repetitive […]


Caro Art

November 01st, 2007 | Category: Art,Random,Rants

When we were kids, my brother Kebes, my BFF Caro and I would make books. They were pretty rocking. Usually they had a holiday theme and featured stories about either us or our cabbage patch kids. If I’m being honest, the words “books” and “stories” are generous in this context. They were just drawings with […]


Girls for the Cure

November 20th, 2007 | Category: Poetry,Random,Rants

Pink sheets Black type Red pen, blue highlight Too tired to care Bored but unwilling to share Can’t trust anyone else to do it right Caught between the instinct for fight or flight Perfectionist but cutting corners all the while Wish there was a wall so I wouldn’t have to smile Everyone Thinks it’s done […]
