I have to go and ring the ordering place, and you have no idea how incredibly boring and complicated that is!

Me, calling the bank. Me, calling the phone company. Me, calling the internet service provider. Me, calling any governmental agency.

Albert One - Turbo Diesel

Something you may not know about me is that I am obsessed with Italo Disco. This is by far the most ludicrous song about cars I’ve ever heard.

ChongQing, Sichuan Province is also knows as Chicago on Yangtze.
Enormously high bridges forming mazes over the city give an image to ChongQing as a city of future. 
Tomorrow is my second trip to the city. Bridges and unique architecture of houses will be my main goal.

Over Time: a post-apocalyptic story about Canada

Had an idea for a comic, which if I actually write, my brother threatens to actually illustrate.

Over Time

In the year 2033, Canada, having still not won a Stanley Cup in 40 years, declares war on America. They lose, badly. America seizes the oilsands and major cities. China retaliates. Years of global war ensue. A truce is eventually established, but the world is a shell of its former self. America annexes BC and the Yukon to link Alaska with the lower 48. China establishes a colony in Alberta. The remains of Canada are heavily damaged and declared a no-man’s land. It quickly devolves into a collection of warring nation states, usually named after local minor league hockey teams. Many more years pass. One day, an unlikely hero (heroes are always unlikely) in Nova Scotia discovers an ancient Wikipedia edit that reveals the Stanley Cup – despite having been last won by the Phoenix Coyotes (their 15th) – remains on Canadian soil at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. Our hero and a ragtag band of misfits (bands are always ragtag and full of misfits) embark on a quest to grab the Cup, head west, and reunite Canada. Along the way, they discover that ecological disasters and evolution have run amok. Enormous monsters roam the prairies (Wheat Kings). Vicious mutants lurk in vacant Tim Hortons (Cruellers). Sentient killing machines (Zombonis) roam decimated urban centres. Eventually the ragtag band becomes an ever-increasing army of northerners, inspired by the quest to unify the country for The Cup. But by the time they reach Alberta, they discover that China has stripped the province of all its natural resources, and evacuated into space (Firefly prequel?). That leaves the Rocky Mountains and the American forces in BC as all that remains against a united Canada. The fight through the mountain passes and valleys between is gruelling and costly, but the overwhelming odds inspire the gritty, truculent forces. There is a final, brutal showdown at the last city in the West, but our hero and the rest of Canada reach the Pacific Ocean victorious.

On the last page, it’s revealed that this was all a nonlinear narrative. The narrator finishes his story with the last line, “AND THAT… is how Vancouver gets a Stanley Cup.”

(Bonus final final frame: “We’re sorry Torts but you’re still fired. Get out.”)

Gracepoint Trailer for all to see

The first trailer for Gracepoint. Coming this fall to Fox, Thursdays @ 9pm.

This is a thing that is filmed where I live!

Because this is filmed where I live, my instinctive reaction is: everything looks low-budget. I have some sort of problem where I can’t enjoy things that aren’t filmed on location, and it is exacerbated greatly when something is filmed locally. (I have the same issue with The Killing and Psych). Also: incorrect lane markings. Wow I am just a bundle of joy.

All that being said, I’m pretty excited to watch this.

BBC headlines are fun contradictions.
