Good afternoon ladies and gents, welcome people of all quartets and capibilities! I am your host, The great, the late, Daaaave Huston!

I was bicariously watching Heros this morning when suddenly ! it hit me, right in the arm! So I hit her right back and we never saw each other again but that's just the way things go. That's when I drew this:

Actually I drew this after playing too much Tony Hawk's Underground when I was living with Kyle. It says "sideways boathouse + Japan + 900* Boneless". They're supposed to be the term being used to describe the trick Steve is pulling off. Some of them are a little bit made up. But it's okay because Jesus doesn't mind. He thinks it's funny.

Ha! That reminds me of Scrubs. Laverne is alla time telling J.D. or Turk that they'll have to answer to Jesus.Sigh. For those of you who might be wondering, my spider powers still haven't come, but I'm working on it every day. Oh no! I just realized my error!

Okay, so yesterday I was hanging out with Sam and Sean and we were at the Jazz Fest and there was a spider on my arm, a big one, and I had thought it was a fluff from the trees and I flicked it off. I was a little freaked out that it was a spider, but I didn't even think about my powers. It could have given me its spider abilities! I guess it's a little tricky to get spider powers when you also don't like spiders crawling on you. Dang. I guess I'll just have to be Batman. Or like, Robin maybe. But then who would be my Batman? Or maybe Wonder Woman is looking for some sidekick action. Oh ho ho!

I think maybe because of the weekend, I'll whip up an extra postings. Plus I missed out on yesterday... so here's a picture I drew when bored in class. Maybe if you're willing, I'll whip you up some fancy jingle. No? Okay then, no jingle for you! I'm done.


Okay, so I missed out on yesterday. No big deal, right guys? Besides, I wasn't really around the house long enough before work to blog. Today is warm and sunny, with a bit of wind. A perfect day for a day off.

Ripe for the picking
Juiciest orchard grown peach
First of the season.

This picture reminds me of the time I went in this tunnel, and there was water in it and a little dark, but then I came out the other side and had to climb some stairs. Man, just like it was yesterday. It also reminds me of Cloverfield. The one thing I can appreciate about that movie is something the director said. He wanted to make a film that was America's answer to Hong Kong's King Kong and Tokyo's Godzilla. He wanted us to have our own monster. What I don't appreciate about that movie is that when I tried to get some wallpaper from the website, they were charging $1.99. Who does that? Not even George Lucas stooped that low! And that saying a lot. So I went to another website.

Today I'ma hang out with the bold and the beautiful Sam from P.A. Those of you who know her know who I'm talking about. She's moved down to Saskatoon, so now I have someone else to hang out with, which is always a good thing. Okay, time for breakfast.

As I sit here, listening to Under There, I can't help but think about how cold and rainy and windy it is. It's just wet outside. In fact, if I were to go out right now, I can't help but worry about how wet my pants might get. No foolin', on my bike ride home last night from work, my pants indeed got wet.

Anyway, enough inside jokes and pluggin'. Oh hey, you know what I was thinking the other day? Um... that other day being yesterday. I was stocking everything up and found that if we somehow couldn't get cheese anymore, like ...not even processed cheese, a lot of our foods would cease to exist. There is cheese, in one form or another, in a whole heck of a lot of food. So then, if there was no cheese, what would replace it? You could kinda say chocolate would because there's so much chocolate as well, and same with vanilla... but I don't know if that would really replace cheese. Ugh, I hope soy wouldn't replace it. ~shudder~

"Oh Dave, things wouldn't be so bad as that, you gotta have confidence in the world" What? How could you say that? The world has let us down so many times. Just take a look at what passes for a comedy these days. It's like, Owen Wilson and Ice Cube and Sean William Scott taking over, and those new, young, "lovable" types like Seth Rogen and Michael Cera. Man, I just can't stand the movies those two put out. Maybe I'm just too old, smart, and mature. Now if you know me, when I say that, you can know how much I don't like those guys and their movies. Be Kind Rewind is pretty much the only recent comedy that I've liked. That and Kung Fu Panda. Movies coming out in these next few weeks are (in order of release) 21, The Happening, Mongol, Wall E., Hancock, The Dark Knight, The Mummy 3, and The Screwtape Letters.

So here's a drawing I did back in elementary school. I had found it with some of my other art from back then. I really wanted it to look as much as a potato as possible, that's pretty much how it turned out. But then, having a picture of a potato is a little boring, so I drew in the super hero. I'm pretty sure he's flying out to stop a meteor from hitting his planet. I was thinking whether or not to give him a cape and I think I didn't just because I didn't think a potato hero would wear a cape.
Kids. You know what I don't like about how humans think? At ever little stage in our lives, we think we have things all figured out. We keep saying "I know a whole lot more than I did back then" or something to that affect. When we get older we know that we don't have everything figured out and that there is still much to learn, but eventually we get right back to that point of "Yeah, I know my stuff." I suppose it has something to do with confidence; if we figure we've got something figured out then we're doing okay. I know how to do my job properly, I can relax. The thing is, if someone ever comes along and tells us we're doing it all wrong, that messes it all up. Or rather, it can potentially mess everything up. That all depends on a few factors. One is: who the advice is coming from. As kids, if that advice comes from our parents, then we respect that and try to do things their way. As teens, we either try out their way or we don't. If we try it their way and their way becomes proven, we switch. If it doesn't suite our liking or if we think our way is better, we ignore it. I'm pretty sure the same reaction is with adults but with less angst and rebellion.
Where am I going with this? I could have drawn the potato differently.

Today is nice and sunny with just enough of a breeze that it makes me wonder why I'm not on the outside biking it up. Instead I'm here listening to TFU, updating my blog and thinking about slurpees. You know, I've always wondered why they haven't tried a chocolate type slurpee yet. Think about it, chocolate lovin' mixed with slurpee awesome, shouldn't that be some kind of awesome lovin' goodness?

"Oh but people wouldn't like that sort of thing, that sounds gross and I kick puppies!" Well puppy kicker, tell me why come it's so danged tasty when Starbucks or DQ or wherever else does it? Yeah they use coffee as well, but there's no saying it wouldn't taste good on its own. We drink chocolate milkshakes don't we?

And they could have such a market on that! Chocolate and banana, chocolate and strawberry, chocolate and raspberry, chocolate and coffee, chocolate and ... oh hey, why haven't they done Vanilla either? Come to think of it, I don't really recall a plain fruit flavour either. It's always sour this or heart attack simulator that. Hmmm. What the crap 7-Eleven? Who's on that board of creators? You could be putting out new flavours ever month! Stupids. Dang, if I was on that board, they'd be handing me the Best Slurpee Guy award like it was too hot to handle. Heck and molasses, I'd be King of the Slurpee.

Shh, I'm dreaming.

Oh man, and I'd be totally into designing those cups. I'd show those cups what-for and artistic know-how! You could get people to design their own slurpee cups! Oh man, just like Jones! They need me on that board of create. That would be my dreamiest, awesome inspired job. My first act of King of Slurpee would be to banish Pepsi from my kingdom. But just Pepsi, 7-Up and the rest could stay just as long as they promise not to fraternize with the enemy.
Too bad we haven't found a way to clone ourselves... the world could use another me.

I've got a few words for y'all. Most fun band/show since 1997. If you've listened to their music before, you might think it's funny but not enough. That's because you need to watch their show. Flight of the Conchords takes place in New York, but really keeps hold of that New Zealand / Australia humor. A very good choice if you're in the mood for the funny.

If you're in the mood for the different interpretation of something, I'd suggest Tin Man. I just finished watching it last night, and man it wasn't spectacular but it was pretty good and entertaining. It's the kind of Oz I'd rather watch than the classic. Don't get me wrong, nothing takes away from the 1939 but if I had a choice between the two, I'd rather watch Tin Man.
Hhhokay so, time for a poem. As some of you know, I usually ...what am I saying? Always, I always write off the cuff. Here's a little ditty about a little girl in an orchard.
Sitting with a grin, teeth sinking in. Juice running down her upside down frown.
Shade protecting from sun's harsh rays, watching as her brother plays.
Gentle breeze blows through her hair as birds take flight into the air.
Some would say this is the life, others say it's best as a wife.
As she finishes off the peach and wipes the juice off of her cheek,
I simply smile to myself and pull a book off of the shelf.
In it are pictures of days too quickly gone by but not a tear falls from my eye.
I grab my bunny hug and head out and my heart it gives a shout.
Get my bike from the garage it is time to end this little montage. (of words)

This was drawn because of boredom in class. The haiku though, was written before hand. It is also the haiku that sparked my trying to go through the alphabet in haiku. The first letter of every line had to start with the same letter and I'd make my way through. I wrote a few of them, which I'll share later if I find them but I haven't made it through the alphabet yet. Sigh.

Sup? I uh... I don't know why I'm doing this, except there's something like, a lot of people, telling me I should share my poetic stylings. The easiest way I thought of doing this was in the electric fashion. No need for publishers. Not that I can make money this way, but it's not about the money, it's about the love I have for putting words together in the way only a genius man can.

With no further delay, here's a haiku:

Oyster shell necklace
Eyes shining blue towards me
Golden hair flowing.

I'm done.
