Canadian Shame

Here’s the thing. Capitalism is everywhere. You knew it when you got old enough to think for yourself. You knew it when you became an adult turned 19. You know it now that you (maybe) pay your own rent/mortgage. So if you’re so big on protesting, where have you been the rest of this year to spread awareness of your cause? Why are you not moving to a third-world, non-corporate country to support the less fortunate? Why are you not sewing your own clothes? Why … Continue reading

Hopefully I live. But who knows!

I didn’t get a tetanus shot and I still feel like my leg (the part that doesn’t have the cut on it) has a giant bruise, and my arm too, and for the past hour all I can smell is copper.

Sometimes, things are funny. And sometimes, they are not. Maybe I’m just getting really old, but when what you’re mocking happens to be a giant part of someone’s life (with the exception of Scientology or Mormonism, because I have to lend myself to hypocrisy in one way or another), it’s time to fuck off. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just taking these ‘jokes’ too seriously, but I’d like to think that if one day I get engaged, or get a job across the planet, or … Continue reading
