So we're all sitting around talking about the Dire Straits song ban, blah blah whatever.

Kyle didn't know about it, and when we played it for him he said, "Oh, that song? It sucks dicks anyway."

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life. Then we made more jokes and played Tetris. Ah, life.

Crazy, crazy day.

Both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson have died and just... wow. I mean, I only heard about Michael Jackson's death (as early as I did) because mom and I watched the news at 6pm about Farrah's death, and then the breaking news report about Michael being brought to the hospital came up.

It's so weird, I mean it was just so sudden, and it's really sad because at the beginning it was all about Farrah because she was such a huge icon, and then Michael died so it all turned to him, and seriously, her death was the LAST thing reported on the 11pm news. So sad.

Writer's Block: Doh!

Disco Stu is my hero.

But, well... I'm quite partial to Snake, Otto, and Comic Book Guy. :3

EDIT, 8:43am //

Ok, so I just read this news story, ok, and maybe I'm just insane, but two major things bother me about it.

1. Why are the parents not making/decorating the cake themselves, and
2. The man is a Holocaust denier, yet he names his kid Adolf Hitler? 1 + 1 is not equaling 2 here, people.

Anyway. Of course it was all done to get a reaction, but seriously... ugh, whatever.

So, we got two kittens. :3

They were hanging around York, so mom and dad took them home. We've named them Arcadia and Natasha. Arcadia is black and white, and Natasha is all black with gray patches on her paws and chest. They're quite cute, but Dakota is TOTALLY jealous. XD He's such a baby.

Anyway~ I guess that's all.

Madrid, Spain: THC administration decreases recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tumor growth in humans, according to the findings of the first-ever clinical trial assessing cannabinoids' anti-tumor action.

Investigators at Complutense University in Spain administered THC intratumorally in nine patients diagnosed with recurrent GBM, an extremely rapid and lethal form of brain tumor. Patients in the study had previously failed standard therapy (surgery and radiotherapy) and had clear evidence of tumor progression. THC treatment was associated with reduced tumor cell proliferation in two subjects, authors reported.

Investigators did not determine whether THC positively impacted patients' survival, though they did conclude that cannabinoid therapy does not facilitate cancer growth or decrease patients' life expectancy. Median survival of the cohort from the beginning of cannabinoid administration was 24 weeks, and two patients survived for approximately one year. Survival for GBM patients following diagnosis is typically six to twelve months.

Researchers speculated that newly diagnosed glioma patients may respond more favorably to cannabinoid-based therapies.

Investigators also reported that THC demonstrated significant anti-proliferative activity on human GBM cells in culture.

"The fair safety profile of THC, together with its possible anti-proliferative action on tumor cells reported here and in other studies, may set the basis for future trials aimed at evaluating the potential antitumoral activity of cannabinoids," investigators concluded.

In 2005, investigators at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute in San Francisco reported that THC selectively decreases the proliferation of malignant cells and induces cell death in human GBM cell lines. Healthy cells in the study were unaffected by THC administration.

Separate preclinical studies indicate that cannabinoids and endocannabinoids can stave off tumor progression and trigger cell death in other cancer cell lines, including breast carcinoma, prostate carcinoma, colectoral carcinoma, skin carcinoma, and pancreatic adenocarcinoma.


Dad and Kyle came back from camping today. They had a good time. :3

Um... I guess that's it, haha.

Oh! I hate that stupid thing that shows up at the top of the page, and I can't even get rid of it! Lame!

NEW YORK (AP) -- A teenager who was part of a gang that fatally stabbed a 15-year-old boy over an iPod was convicted Tuesday of murder.

In a clear, and definitive way, the Chinese government stated all new PCs must be Linux-friendly. Case Closed. If you don't certify your computer is 100% Linux compatible, go away.

Ehehehe~! Amazing.

Went bowling again today. Muchos fun. I still suck at it. Health exam was super easy, and it wasn't even a written exam, joy. It was an interview, in which she asked a couple questions from the review that I had to answer. Swish!

Now I've got to study my ass off for law. *Yippee*

Found an article in The Barrie Advance about the Alice Cooper concert that's coming up. I'm on the laptop right now, so I'll have to type it up rather than scan it.

Alice Cooper will rip your head off
Veteran theatrical rocker takes over BMC stage next thursday

His concerts take his fans back in time to a 15th-century village, down roads to dark places they may not want to visit, travels from which they may reurn exhausted.
And he threatens to do the same to Barrie fans, Thursday, May 11 at Molson Centre.
If they don't come back feeling dazed and feeling like thier heads have been ripped off, well, Alice Cooper just plain ain't done his job!
"I like to involve the audience", the Detroit-born rocker tells The Advance. "If you're in the first 20 rows, you know you're in the show, and it's probably not a good idea to wear your best clothes. When they cut my head off, it's going to spray - no two ways about it."
And it's not just Alice who gets splattered; his whole cast of characters are also in for some love.
"When Paris Hilton (her lookalike, of course) comes wandering onto the stage with her chihuahua, what's everyone's fantasy? That the chihuahua will go for her throat - and you know the audience is going to get splattered with that."
Those characters include a bunch of villagers sceaming for Alice's head, a vampire in the guise of a Vegas showgirl, a hunchback screaming "Guillotine! Guillotine!" - all the makings of a complete show that should leave patrons limp with exhustion.
But to borrow an analogy which the artist born Vincent Furnier tosses out, you can't have the icing on the cake - the theatrics, the guillotine, the fake blood - without the cake. And that's the tunes.
"They're coming the hear 'School's Out', '18', 'No More Mr. Nice Guy', 'Million-Dollar Baby', 'Poison', 'Only Women Bleed'. We do 29 songs in he show, and it's all pure classic Alice."
Ah, yes, 'School's Out' a tune cranked out on every teenager's car stereo every June since the early 70s, which makes its creator shakes his head in wonder.
"I never really realized the power of that song," he recalls, "till I realized that the favourite part of your year is the last three minutes before summer vacation, like opening Christmas presents. When we wrote that song, I thought, if we could capture the excitement of those three mintues, that's going to be a national anthem."
Alice is also gratified at the cross-section of agegroups that turn out for his shows continent-wide - the kids going through the malls wearing T-shirts honoring the classic rock bands, like Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, yes, Alice Cooper - not just their parents who graduated when 'School's Out' first came out.

GOD!! It sounds so amazing! And if I can't find anyone to go with, I'm just going to go with my brother. Ah well.

York students win big at Japanese speech contest

TORONTO, April 5, 2006 - York University students won almost half of the top prizes at the 17th Annual National Japanese Speech Contest held on campus on Sunday. The contest drew linguistic competitors from universities from across Canada. York students garnered four of the 10 top prizes at the nationals.

John Baig, a first-year student in the Bachelor of Business Administration program at the Schulich School of Business, received the Grand Prize in the Beginners Category, a trip to Tokyo. Sin’ici Kitano, a fourth-year student in the East Asian Studies program, received First Prize in the Open Category. Enrico Bianco, a third-year computer science student, received Second Prize in the Intermediate Category. Chungmin Lee, a third-year linguistics student, received Second Prize in the Advanced Category. They beat out competitors from nine Canadian universities and received a variety of prizes.

The same four students had previously won top prizes at the provincial competition in March. Only non-native speakers can compete in the Japanese language contests. The contestants may be enrolled in one or many courses in Japanese studies and they compete in various categories based on different levels of ability.

Sadaaki Numata, Japan’s Ambassador to Canada, served as Chief Judge of the language competition. York University alumnus David Tsubouchi, a former provincial cabinet minister and a current member of York’s Board of Governors, delivered a welcome speech to the contestants at the event in Vari Hall A. The competition was established in 1989 through the Japanese Embassy in Ottawa in order to promote Japanese language education in Canada.

“We are thrilled to report that the York University students once again thrived in the Japanese language contest, winning a quadruple crown victory that includes the grand prize, a first prize, and two second prizes,” says Professor Norio Ota, Coordinator of the Japanese Studies section, Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, and the event organizer. “We are always impressed with the amount of interest we receive in Japanese language, culture and society, and we believe that the skills these students develop will serve them well when they graduate and go on to positions that utilize their talents and abilities, whether in Canada or Japan.”

York University President Lorna Marsden made a surprise visit to the competition on Sunday. She says the results of the national and provincial contests demonstrate the strength of York University’s language studies.

“The relationship between Japan and Canada is very important, and this event gives each university and its students the chance to demonstrate their strength in Japanese language studies,” she says. “The success of the competitors from York University is a testament not only to the quality of our students, but also to the excellence of Japanese studies here at York.”

More than 300 students are enrolled in the Japanese Studies program at York, which includes language, culture and society, and translation classes. Interest in Japanese business, and increasingly, the appeal of Japanese pop culture, attracts many young people to the program. They hope to gain language and public speaking skills as well as an edge in jobs after graduation, either in Canada or Japan, that take advantage of their unique skill sets.

York University hosted the national event for the second consecutive year. Hosting usually rotates between York, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, and Université de Montréal. The competition is sponsored by The Japan Foundation and supported by the Japanese Consulate, Mitsui & Co. (Canada) Ltd., Noritake Canada Ltd., Canon Canada Inc., Honda Canada Inc., MacKinnon Travel Ltd., NGK Spark Plugs Canada Ltd., Yamaha Canada Music Ltd., Canada Planners International Services, Hasting Park Foundation and York University.

Going over to Verena's in... about half an hour. Wheee. I dunno what we're gonna do, but it'll be good.

Did anyone else hear (or read) about the Yeti Crabs? Wow.

I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamt that I slept in for going to Verena's house and my parents took me out shopping to a new bookstore that was in town. I found a book that I wanted, but everything was priced in Euros. So I took out the money I had and gave it to the guy at the cash (it was normal Canadian money) and he was like 'yep, that's good.' And gave me the book. Then when I went outside, it wasn't really outside, but it was the school. I was with my health class and we were all walking up the stairs, and some of them were picking on that new girl and they got in a huge fight. Then after the fight was over, the new girl came to me and said 'don't worry, we're still cool'. Which is kinda weird, becuase we've only talked like, twice. Isn't that strange?

"Heron was bitten on the arm and thigh and his surfboard was chomped in two by a four-meter shark but fought the shark off by kicking and punching it". Haha. Awesome.

Anyway... been mostly lying around doing nothing for the past few days. As opposed to working on fixing the scanner, I just haven't been working on drawing. Blah. Mom made caramel apples today, they were pretty good, but turned out kinda weird because we had to use Splenda rather than actual sugar.

Searching around aimlessly, found the trailer for the new Harry Potter movie. Looks good. And, oh my god dude seriously, Ron's hair? GAH. Please excuse me as I smash my head on the desk with joy.

Dad and me bought LIGHTSABERS from Shoppers Drug Mart for about $10 each, and I also got a Pez dispenser with General Grievous on it. Expect some pictures soon.

Rented a couple more movies; Crash, The Longest Yard, and Team America (again). I loved The Longest Yard, and not just because Adam Sandler = excellent. Crash was very, very well made. Going to be searching around for To Kill a Clown. Fwee.

I went up to the doctor's yesterday, he said he was going to treat me as if I had pleurisy, and he gave me a crap load of pills that I have to take, twice a day for about a week. The only problem is that they made me totally sick. I keep throwing up, it's really awful.

I didn't have to wake up early today though! Mom let me sleep in, so I didn't get up until about 1pm. Very nice.

Oh, zombies! XD

Rawr! It was really warm today, even though it was supposed to rain. I really want it to rain... I don't know why, but I do. I like rain.

Oh! There's a new pope now. Pope Benedict XVI. Yup. XD He's German, and 78 (I think?) years old. Yippee. Maybe he'll die soon and we'll get another one, haha. Wouldn't that be fun.

I ate lunch in the chapel again. I seem to be making a habit of it, although it's still kinda spooky in there. Eek. I guess since its getting warmer I'll be eating inside more often... Alicia plays the guitar everyday, so it's all good. :3

I can't help but think there was something interesting I had to write about... but I guess not. Blah.

PP UPDATE: green pants

Only two more to go! I'm in love with this show. I really am. I love everything about it, the characers, the action, the music, the philosophies, the way things are intertwined!! I love how emotional it is! This is probably the only anime that I have really gotten into. It made my cry, SEVERAL times. There are parts in it that made me so happy I hugged my computer screen. It is just that amazing. And now there is a movie coming out! I'm so excited!

You can see the trailer for it here: Hagaren Movie, there's also a interview type thing with Paku Romi (SQUEE~!!), the director, and the producer! Squee! It's all in Japanese though. :D Oh, and I don't know how long it's going to be up there, so go! Go and watch it NOW!! *_*
