Ok Go - Here it Goes Again

These guys know how to do a music video. What an ingenious (and cheap) way to make a video. The other amazing thing is that they did this entire thing in one take. That must have taken some serious practice.

The Polaris Prize was awarded this week to a blegh heavy metal artist with an inappropriate name although maybe it is appropriate because I really don't like them.
My picks to win it were Great Lake Swimmers or Joel Plaskett's latest albums (both of which I own and listen to quite regulary.

Oh well there is always next year.

Kitchen: Phase 1 is Complete

So we will finally be back in our kitchen just as soon as I can wrangle up some muscle to help me move the appliances back into place.
Here are some pics of the renovation over the past several weeks.

The orginal floor. This turned out to be a rather hard job to remove.
The original Dinette area. Very useless space - too small for any real use.

The new pantry/desk unit. Still a couple cabinets left to install here.

New ceiling. Yes it is curved.

Original pantry.

Original cabinets.
New Cabinets and larger openings in the wall.

New cabinets, window, tap, flooring and ceiling.

The Fune

I have been thinking about getting a cellphone for a while so maybe this is my best option:

Seriously though, I have heard that by early next year we should have some more cell phone carriers flooding the Canadian marketplace due to some new rules. There is Globalive which is owned by a Middle Eastern company that also owns YAK and WIND Mobile (connected to an Italian company of the same name). Public Mobile and DAVE Wireless. are two other newcomers. Public will launch in Ontario and Quebec exclusively and DAVE will launch in all of Canada except Quebec.

So I think I will hold on until there is a little more competition.
