“Pimp ma botte? Quoi c’est qu’tu parles de là, jeune houmme?”

Cynical, weird, wrong but very beautiful

Quel optimisme!

Random Reminder (AKA some fads aren’t fads at all!)

what i need you to imagine in panel 3 is a metal cowboy robot hand grabbing the crotch of a dinosaur, okay??

Random reminder that Dinosaur Comics Is Awesome. Awesome in the awe-inspiring sense.

When I started reading I was impressed by the fertility of the seemingly bare premises. There was already a ton (read months) of material to go through. I kept current for a long time. I stopped visiting it daily maybe two years ago. Just a quick dip once a moon. And always: this comic amazes me. Just plain fun. Witty, bright, clever, insane, profound, intelligent and so funny.

Ryan North has been doing this for more than 6 years. If the layout of the archives page is to be any hint we will still have them until the end of December 2009. Also: there are 1436 comics on this page. One thousand four hundred thirty six. I. Am. Amazed.

I declare Ryan North to be the most pertinaciously funny daily comic writer ever.

Getting started with my Ukulele

On somewhat of a whim, I decided to buy myself a ukulele. The impulse was so strong that – afraid I wouldn’t get to the store in time – I asked a friend to go and buy it for me to make sure I got it as soon as possible. So from Italmelodie on Jean-Talon I got a Mahalo Concert electro-acoustic Ukulele.

Mea and my Mahalo Ukulele

The same night I got the beast, I started looking online to see what’s available and how to start. I was very surprised at the quantity of quality material on the web. Lots of basic lessons, tutorial videos, reviews, techniques, songs tutorial and songbooks. It’s amazing!

I have very little experience with stringed instruments: a few weeks of bass guitar last year and a few hours of ukulele from my 4th grade or so. Just enough to know what I’m tackling. I have a good base of music theory but there’s not much from my four years of tuba in high-school that can be transposed to the Ukulele. So I really needed help to get started.

I am still practicing the basics, I won’t be posting my own stuff yet… but I should start linking to and posting ukulele stuff once in a while. For now let’s start with my basic bookmarks (if you’re in the least interested in learning to play the uke, be sure to visit ukuleleunderground.com):

That’s it for now, I have to go back and work on my G chord family transitions.

I made a film!

Done with the website xtranormal.com, a very interesting toy. They even have Québécois voices and different style of characters and scenes.
