Hipster Bingo

If I would have had the Hipster Bingo card with me when I went down Commercial Drive today, I would have got a blackout. Bingo!

This picture has absolutely nothing to do with the post. It’s just a fine looking ass.

Enter the Dermatrix

The folks at skinema.com (a fascinating website about dermatology in the cinema) bring you the Dermatrix. The Dermatrix is an examination of all the skin conditions that exist within the Matrix movies. This can include skin conditions by the actors themselves or simulated skin conditions for the sake of drama. Enter the Dermatrix.

Work it

So I’ve gone to the gym. Usually my work outs consist of running outside follows by a mixture of push-ups and sit-ups at home. Went to the Britannia Community Centre nearby and paid money for a daypass. I tried to go last week but was intimidated when I went looked inside and saw a variety of different machines and people who looked like they knew what they were doing.

I started out on the elliptical step-machine thing and did that for about 10 or 15 minutes before I decided I didn’t like it. However, the neat things were all the buttons that you can use to customize your workout by speed or tension. The handlebars also measure your heart-rate and periodically tell to “slow down, motherfucker” or something to the extent.

The treadmills were the shit. It took a bit of getting used to but once I got going I really enjoyed it. They also had the same variety of buttons. I went at speed 7 for about 15 minutes which is pretty good I guess because that motherfucker beside me was only doing speed 5 and the lady who came after him was pretty much walking it at speed 3. You gotta work that ass, bitch!

I dabbled with the weights for a bit but am still a bit unsure on the proper combination and reps for a proper workout. I’m definitely going to get a monthly pass come August.

They were even playing The Beat 94.5 FM. It’s the local Hip-Hop and R&B station I usually listen to while jogging. So I guess that alleviates the need to bring my crappy FM radio. Great.

Work that shit!

Korean Jokes

I guess something got lost in the translation of these jokes from their native Korean to English. I’m still scratching my head and can’t figure out exactly what a “wen” is and why Kim Jong-il has two of them.

This came up during a Google image search for “Wen”. Why would Kim Jong-Il have two sanders?

The Tard Blog

This morally questionable blog is written by two special education teachers featuring stories about some of their students. It is a guilty pleasure to read this page. It’s also fascinating if you’ve never worked in that environment before. Worth a read. While I could post a picture of one of the students, I won’t. That would be in poor taste. Here is a picture of an avocado instead.

If I had a rocket launcher

While far from being a homeowner at this point in my life, it is good to know that if I ever wanted to live in a cold-war era missile base I could. And at very affordable prices. They are fixer-uppers after suffering from 30 years of neglect but they are very solid and warm in the winter.
