I popped into HMV today (Eaton Centre) and if you sign up for their loyalty card (3.00) you get the 5 disc Bluray Box set of the 2010 Canada Hockey Gold Medal Olympic run for free. 8 games in total and in their entirety.
When you register your card online, you get enough points to warrant a 3.00 discount on your next purchase, essentially making this set free.
I didn't ask if this was restricted to that specific store or if this is a provincial promotion but regardless it's pretty sweet.
I saw the headline for it, and I thought "can't be philly, that airport is bad enough already without idiots driving on the runway" then sure enough saw it on the news. I still remember when they had a big pothole on the runway.
I love when your sleeping and woken up by your dog. He had to go out, but while your about to walk him down your steps of your bedroom, he just decides to go right there!!! It smelled like a small animal died in him and he decided to deposit in my room! ****ing A! ******* motha ****er. I just felt like everyone should hear this since it almost 6! Great way to start the morning! Damn it
Just watching Goon, love how their team logo is quite clearly a re-working of the Flyers'
"The character of Doug Glatt plays for two teams in the movie: The Orangetown Assassins, who wear orange and black uniforms; and the Halifax Highlanders, whose logo is the letter H with a dot on the right side and wings on the left. Both are allusions to the NHL team Philadelphia Flyers, who have a similar logo and wore a similar style of uniforms in the past."
I haven't seen eXistenZ. Hopefully it's on Netflix.
"Naked Lunch" is another Cronenberg flick. I don't have the foggiest idea what is going on in that movie, there are bugs, and they are also typewriters, and the typewriter bugs fight each other, and there are other bugs which are ground up and taken as drugs, and the whole typewriter bug aspect might be nonexistent or a hallucination because of the effects of the bug drugs.
I'm in my room hanging plaster when i hear my kitchen window break.. Unlocked the gun safe in my closet and grabbed a hunting rifle thinking somebody was breaking..
Head down stairs making sure the potential robber hears me loading the gun.. Then i called out that I will shoot.. I hear my brother yelling 'DON'T SHOOT. IT'S ME. THE WINDOW BROKE WHEN I TRIED TO OPEN IT'
The Erie Otters (OHL) played all but 2 minutes of their 13-4 loss last night with centre Connor Crisp (related to Coco?) in nets. Their starting goalie was injured 2 minutes into the game after a collision with an opposing forward, and their other regular goaltender was hurt Friday night.
The Otters GM apologized for the miscalculation and failure to have a legitimate back-up for the game on the team's website:
"Late last night, our backup goaltender failed a concussion test. I looked at our alternatives; one of our goaltenders [Adam Wood] was playing in the Ontario Junior C Championships, the other [Corey Foster] in the Midget Ontario Championships. I studied our alternatives based on the 2,000 or so games I've been involved in. This turned out to be a bad decision. I accept full responsibility and apologize publicly for the embarrassment to the league and the sport of hockey that I love. I have deep respect for our league and sport."
