The following post has a higher than usual amount of profanity (for DWR, anyway). You have been warned.
Eating right is hard. Eating horribly wrong is so very easy. Are we all doomed to clogged arteries, pickled livers, and malnourished obese children? No! Thug Kitchen is here to save us all! What started as an awesome blog is now a cookbook with it’s own trailer!
What makes Thug Kitchen so special? There are lots of health cook books out there, but you may have noticed a slightly unusual tone in the trailer. From the Thug Kitchen FAQ section:

I'm not sure I can bear hearing that the Scottish invented both #curling AND #sex. http://t.co/n7AdaO9EcI #Scotland

Microbrachius dicki was the fish that realized it could use sex to reproduce. Feeling unsatisfied, fish eventually returned to spawning instead.
MT @CBCQuirks "Sex first emerged 'in ancient Scottish lake' (insert joke here) " – Microbrachius dicki. Insert Dicki joke is what he did.

The funny folks over at Last Week Tonight tackle cover Rand and her amazing set of ‘ideas’ – you remember the ones – the “fuck you, I’ve got mine” high minded ‘philosophy’ that, because it dovetails with capitalism, did not die the premature death it so rightly deserves.

I have to be honest here, I cannot be counted among the in-the-know sartorial elite. I’m pretty sure this isn’t accurate but I still find this picture to be quite amusing.

“Oz: The Great and Powerful” [9/10] made me think the TV was malfunctioning when it started, because it’s at half the screen size and black and white. This is by design, to give it an old and otherworldly appearance. It’s a clever movie though, and if you enjoyed Wizard of Oz, you’ll probably like this one too.
People are so terribly ignorant when it comes to climate change, in the face of this seemingly unconquerable monolith of stupidity Jon Stewart finds a way to get his point across.
We’re in trouble if the people in charge of Science and Technology are this ignorant. (wilfully or otherwise)

Have you heard about the amazing discovery the Harper Government is responsible for?
No, not the Franklin Expedition which remained known to the Inuit for almost 200 years through oral history, I’m talking about the discovery in Ottawa that the federal government isn’t maintaining important national landmarks related to science.
I watched “Escape From Planet Earth” [8/10] a cartoon with Rob Cordery, and it’s pretty good. William Shatner plays the bad guy.
Religion plies its trade in fear. Thank you khaki dude for providing such a clear example.

It depends on how much respect you’re looking for, really. I mean, if you just want your friends, family and neighbours to respect you then it should be pretty easy. From what I can see, your smaller primate groupings here … Continue reading →

Watched “Epic” [5/10] about little tree people. “Born on the Fourth of July” [8/10] a 1989 Tom Cruise movie about a Vietnam vet who protests the war.
A Marvel Avengers cartoon movie about their kids stopping Ultron. 6/10
“Burke and Hare” [8/10] a dark British comedy about the early medical profession.
It's so hot out you can't even hear the #climatechange Deniers making jokes about "Where's Global Warming?"…— Saskboy K. (@saskboy) August 14, 2014
Yes, it’s so hot out you can’t even hear the #climatechange Deniers making jokes about “Where’s Global Warming?”… you know, because when it’s -30 you hear the ignorant phone into radio shows and ask if the globe is warming, why is it so cold in Canada in Winter?
It’s over 30 degrees in Regina today, there was a heat warning from Environment Canada.
I blame Canada.
The world lost a really genuine person who tried at least as hard as Jim Carey and Steve Carell, to make everyone laugh.
Aww shucks, Williams was priceless.
Let’s try to use this time to give hope to those with depression, and turn this problem around for countless people.
Everything is carbon. Everyone's fooled when you're part of Shell's team, everything is dying, when you're living big oil's dream. #Lego— Saskboy K. (@saskboy) July 09, 2014

Seems as the so-called ‘Cowichan Taxbusters’ are beating up the tight-fisted rightwingers on North Cowichan Council. Now I could find plenty to argue about with my friend Al Siebring but I had to laugh reading his latest posting.
Yes folks fall elections are now underway. It seems that confusion in the ranks of the ill-informed far right ‘Cowichan Taxbusters’ will provide heartburn to the real tax tightwads Siebring, Koury and Woike. Ripley wouldn’t believe it!
Check out Councilor Al Siebring’s blog for more information and clarity from the right.

Can anyone out there follow the disjointed logic of the Harperite’s regarding marijuana? Their attempt to slam Trudeau’s plan to legalize pot for recreational purposes has backfired.
Read Robyn Urbanks story that ran in the National Post.
Obviously Harper and his caucus have taken their terms of reference in issues surrounding the use of weed from this 1937 Propaganda Classic ‘Reefer Madness.’

While reading news page comment sections, even hopeless trolls who’d normally mock people saving trees by “hugging” them, have seen the light because of the nanny-state circumstance dooming the trees they’ve been coached to hate even more than “tree huggers”.
Saskatchewan is a province of leaders. We lead the country in smoking. We lead the world in per capita Green House Gas emissions. And we’re leading the fight against (Read more…)
Hi everybody, just a random update from your friendly Intransigent blogger, to lighten the mood around here. I have a tale of a happy convergence of circumstances.
One day, I’m at the horse rescue and another volunteer invites me to come to a different horse-establishment to meet her horse. Of course I said yes! So we made a date, and I met up with her and her horse, and as we’re fussing over her horse and giving him treats, she asks me, have you ever thought of starting to ride again. I (as cheerfully as (Read more…)

We don;t need to talk politics all the time.
here’s a song from the past that some people will remember. It only did well in this part of North America likely because we are the only ones who didn’t think these people had an accent.
