Every Which Way But Loose with my grandfather in 1978, and I remember feeling embarrassed because one of the previews showed a women wearing a lacy corset...I remember the lineup being all the way down the mall hallway for the Herbie movie...I remembr having a $1 to go to the mall, and being mad that I couldn't quite get three comics (which at 35 cents each would cost 1.05) - 3 comics these days would cost me $15 which I probably wouldn't do...wierd, eh - at 10 years old I could easily afford 3 comics on a shopping trip but nowadays, a highly paid professional, I wince at the price of 3 comics...First comic I remember buying was a fantastic four comic, one where the Thing was hanging out with the Hulk but then fights him when he hurts one of the other fantastic four ...bought it at the Shopper's Drug Mart, Towers mall, Saint John...I remember when the Irving on Main Street, Lancaster stopped selling comics, which meant that I could no longer get a comic on the way home from our Sunday night visits with my grandfather. Random thoughts on a Monday.

Michael Jackson Reality Show...realit,y coming from Michael, that would be a first, I think...
Celeberity American Idol - they quote that they are going to get A-list stars to try out - yeah, good one, we're going to see Tom Cruise and Angelina Jolie....more likely more Brady Bunch/Partridge Family style leftovers...
Reality Show Writer's strike - love this - don't all the advertisements for reality shows boast up the 'unscripted part'...how can you write reality?

China orders chinese websites/blogs to register with government - I can see this as a future boondoggle that our marvelessly inept government would attempt...

Appleby's camera in Saint John sells Agfa black and white slide film ! Yay ! Saves me a bundle in time and money shipping it from the States...Gurmant Grewal got caught? Arrested? today hanging out in an airport trying to get passengers to carry a package to Ottawa for him - not sure why he didn't ship it or take it himself - this guy is really wierd. Everybody knows you don't accept packages from strangers on flights - maybe he's had a Svend Robinson style breakdown...put together a toddler bed tonight, once again proving that I am the least handy guy in the known universe...big plan this summer - I am going to create a "musical ligne" - a series of photos, with a connecting theme, presented to music - I am going to use stone churches (or maybe just churches) in New Brunswick, in black and white, to "Amazing Grace"
