Why The Walrus sucks [Sep. 13th, 2010|07:06 pm]

Life doesn't suck, but my hand is a little shaky.
Damn you Katy!

I don't take, but sometimes I accept the challenge. Hence the rather hideous pic taken with Raven's phone only minutes ago.

We're I to formally tag, the post would be friends' only and the dare would be worded as follows:

Take a picture of you in your current state, no changing clothes or tidying up! NO PHOTOSHOP. Show your F-list the real you!

I should fess up: I fixed the colour a little on mine. But onwards.

Friday saw the online availability of my latest screed careful critical consideration of a Canadian cultural institution, in this case, the rather lamentable state of The Walrus magazine. You can read it at the newly re-designed True North Perspective or at my my own site.

But be warned, it's a couple of thousand words; enter at your own risk (but it also includes a picture of Pierre Trudeau, so how can you resist? Read "The Dumbing of the Beast"!

Challenge accepted. Caught me without a shirt but still, I don't do much editing on the computer anyway so this shouldn't be a surprise..

Don't have time to read something over a few paragraphs right now! GTGBAI

Rudeness R us

You were suppose to accept the challenge in your journal, but I don't mind seeing your mug here at all.

You sure did ...
