It also means that this blog, unfortunetly, will be put to rest. Have a happy holiday and enjoy some free time at home (or where ever you might be). Cheers.

We go live Christmas day!

Duncan Watches Gold Metal Boxing

As my list says, I have always wanted to be in a boxing match. A real one, mouth gaurds, gloves, opponent, the whole bit.

While I am yet to box, on December 10th in Doha, Qatar I watched, while ringside, a gold metal boxing match. It was the craziest bout I've ever seen and ever since, for better or for worse, I've been dieing to get in the ring.

lets do it,

Jonnie the Plate Breaker

To honor our good friend Nikos, whose mantra 'APHAVA' (meaning no fear) is tattooed on Dave's leg, I smashed a plate. How we met Nikos is a story that remains to be told, but he is a kind and generous man who spoiled us a number of times at his greek restuarant in Penticton B.C. After running out of time on my exam today, I dediced to do as he had once told us and break a plate to express my 'passion'. It was all caught on tape. - Jonnie

Jonnie and the Punk Show

I love trying to understand the sequence of events that causes people to put items on their list. Anything can plant that seed in your head: love, hate, respect, envy, chance, luck, privilage. Often it's a combination of many things. Other times, as was the case for me last week, you just go and do things that were never on your list (but should have been). Dragged out by friends on thursday, I broke character to go see a punk show, i.e. 'Me First and the Gimme, Gimmes'. I think everyone should see a punk show once in their life. They should try moshing too. If you agree and end up putting it on your list, while then I guess reading this was 'chance'. Or maybe 'luck'. Who knows. Maybe some life changing event is waiting for you right around the corner and you have no idea. All I can say is be open to the opportunity. - Jonnie
