  1. Why the Vinyl Cafe is very Canadian


    A week ago Thursday, I went to see The Vinyl Cafe live at our auditorium. But because I've been busy doing other things--i.e., homework--I haven't bothered blogging about it until now.

    I love The Vinyl Cafe, and nothing beats going to see it live. I went the last time the show was in Thunder Bay, two years ago, and I'll go when it comes back in two years. Until then, I'll continue listening to…

  2. Spark


    Lately I've been listening to CBC Radio's new show Spark.

    Some of you may recall that I'm not always fond of the CBC, but they've got something good going with Spark. It's the sort of show that would appeal to demographics that might otherwise view the CBC as stodgy and uninteresting. Spark's host, Nora Young, discusses the latest technology and technological phenomena with guests. Specifically, the show focuses on how technology integrates into and…

  3. Seven days later!


    Wow, that break went by pretty fast. So fast that if you blinked you probably missed it. I must say...I'm not all that enthused about going back to school. This saddens me, because last year I would be definitely ready. This year, as I've said in previous posts, not so much. So I won't harp on that here. This isn't supposed to be a rant, eh.

    I've started work on Vanilla Guestbook's total rewrite. I…

  4. Six hours


    There's such a thing as "too much of the CBC". That is what I learned today. :D

    I went into work for six hours (because the pay is lucrative but I find it difficult to work for any large amount of time due to the fact I have "school" ). From noon until six today, I mostly sat down in the basement of the Chapples Building and carefully sorted paper from paperclips, the former…

  5. CBC News: The Hour


    So CBC News: The Hour had its season premiere tonight. I loved this show, and I still do. I have been waiting all summer for it to come back, because I can finally watch something each night and get up to date on all that "news" stuff happening in our world.

    They changed the format a bit . . . and the guy working the cues needs to pay more attention to which buttons he…

  6. My letter to the CBC


    Subject: Canadian programming is dead.

    Dear CBC:

    I am an adolescent who enjoys watching much of the CBC's programming, including the wonderful show CBC News: The Hour. I know this may come as a surprise to you (I mean, you're governed by the Department of Heritage!) but yes, I quite enjoy CBC programming.

    Which is one of the reasons that I was extremely disappointed that instead of CBC News: The Hour, I was invited…

  7. Blasphemy and sacrilege grace the CBC


    After my school board lets me down, my Minister of Education lets me down, and my laptop lets me down, I started to wonder what would go wrong next. It turns out that was a bad idea.

    The CBC is having some labour difficulties right now. Basically, the permanent staff wants the management to hire more permanent staff and decrease the amount of work they contract out. From the management point of view, it's cheaper…

  8. Doctor Who?


    I watched the CBC's premiere of the BBC's new Doctor Who series last night. Sadly, I've never had the opportunity to see any of the previous series, but I do think this one is . . . okay. I haven't really seen a lot of British television before, so it was a little surprising. But overall I did like the storyline, if the episode itself wasn't that great. The teaser for next week…
