"All counterculture becomes appropriated and the next movement comes along to react against it. The hippies, give them their due, they had a long run, much longer than punk rock, but it had become this other thing when people who get into it don’t understand the original idea. They wear the bell-bottom jeans and smoke a spliff - and that’s part of their fucking dynamic, but only part of it. It becomes this thing that the next lot have to rebel against; you almost need it to happen. You need to get ill before you take the medicine to get the cure."

— Don Letts, “Punk Rock: An Oral History”

After New Zealand won at the IRB Sevens tournament in Hong Kong a couple weeks ago they did the Haka in the rain.  Always one of the coolest things to see.

Watch Calgary as it pretends to be Fargo!  And then feel bad for so many great actors getting the literal cold shoulder from Canada’s winter.
If you live in BC you can see it on Shaw channel 267 at 7, 8:30 & 10 tonight.

Happy Shakespeare’s 450th Birth-month!

Pretty sure he would have loved the bathroom fish tank and Mercutio in drag, to say nothing of Paul Rudd dancing in an astronaut suit.

all the adjectives a person could ever need…

What I’ve learned from Buzzfeed and their viral quizzes that clog every feed you have is that you will ultimately be given all the descriptors you could ever want.  It’s online wish-fulfillment.  Here’s the massive list I’ve resulted in…

clever, wise, creative, witty, loyal, smart, underrated badass, moody, cocky, confident, generous, fierce, intelligent, survivor, fighter, magnificent hair, dependable, fighting spirit, industrious, ambitious, beautiful, aloof, revered, empathetic, political, pragmatic, dreamer, just, manipulative, heart of gold, beautiful, no patience for weakness in others, enjoy having control over others, sexy, witty, playful, good person, intoxicating, rare breed, total babe, handsome, brave, jokester, adventurous, carefree, cool, sophisticated, kind-hearted, romantic, snarky, rebel, specific, delightful, unapologetically yourself, uptight, great cook, great host, great friend, magnetic, natural leader, strong, bold, beautiful, classic, in charge, sociable, nice, pensive, unique taste, impressive, cozy, sassy, cultured, modern, forward thinking, historical, self-sufficient, prepared, noble, sharp, effervescent, career driven, world-shaker, charismatic, committed, restless, cheerful, friendly, creative genius, trend setter, adorable.

I promise you I am not all of those things.  I don’t know if anyone could possibly be all of those things.

"True revolution comes from true revulsion; when things get bad enough the kitten will kill the lion."

— Charles Bukowski

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

— William Shakespeare, Macbeth

Writing brain, it’s a thing.
And it’s clearly a thing that happens when sleep or coffee are messed around with.
In addition to all the pages of notes, post-its and spirals I now have of book stuff I’ve been writing about the process of writing.  The idea being that one day I can look back and recall the insanity of it all.  
The insanity and the doodles.
