What it’s like walking into a location for a shoot with no idea what it looks like and getting more then expected.
Why I call my blog “Talking Trash” has to do with both my personality and my job before this.
Ever do a Google search only to find that the first item links to a page that seems way too shitty to be the first thing to come up for whatever you just searched?
It’s flu shot season, and that means it’s once again time for debate and discussion about the safety and ethics of vaccination.
Every photograph gets some editing before it gets sent to the layout designer and I’ve had a number of people ask me what do you do and how much is too much. Hopefully this will give some insight.
Save for some obvious drama and rhetorical outbursts that can only be found on American television, this year’s round of presidential debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have revealed much about US democracy and its fragile state.
Making sense of what I learned about the clamp down on DFO scientists from speaking the truth about research cuts and my own experiences as a public servant under the Harper regime.
You have no choice. Harvey Carlisle, the biggest third of the moon, the man that runs with wolves and flies with the geese has spoken. These are the tracks that Harvey’s Law demands you hear. I recommend you get started or else be prepared to duel with a god.
Winnipeg as a creative hub, and what do people mean when they say they don’t like art.
What’s cruel about wool and honey? Time to settle this persistent question.
What I find most troubling is the fact there is very little analysis of how landlordism is similar to capital exploitation in production. In both cases the means of existence are alienated from the citizen, worker or tenant. Landlords make profit off of the classes systematically dispossessed from owning land and property. Landlords gain profit while the poor are never able to purchase the lodging they rent. There used to be a revolutionary tradition of opposing landlordism as a system of exploitation that went alongside wage slavery as the two central ways of extracting resources from the lower classes. This tradition was eliminated by the reformist tendencies on the left in the rise to hegemony of social democratic politics.

What George Orwell taught me about the internet.
As a student whose field of study in no way involves such things as “statistics” or “quantitative research” or “the real world”, I’ve sometimes found myself resorting to alternative takes on the scientific process in order to answer the more practical questions in life. By this, of course, I mean silently judging those I encounter with the cold, cynical eyes of unverifiable criticism at all times.
