Long Weekend Audio: I Like Traffic Lights…

Thank Monty Python for the title. Well! Aren’t we the audio crankin’ machines? We decided this one would have a different twist on it. We decided to take you, the loyal vomiteers, on a walk with us. We’d never done this before…and it kinda showed in the audio quality. Most of it is pretty listenable, […]

Long Weekend Audio: Caboom!Cast

The urge struck us to do some more audio, so here we are. We had a lot of fun doing this one. It started with me not saying go at the right moment. Woops. Welcome to me not being a good record button-pusher. Then we just rambled about the awesome weather, the Blue Jays winning […]

Long Weekend Audio: The First Of Many Casts

Well…our first audio is up. We had hoped to have it up last night, but we kind of fell over after we finished recording it. The file got uploaded to the server, but hell if I was going to write the post around it. So I’m writing it this morning. Poor Steve had to start […]

But the Harper Government, in its whatever the opposite of infinite wisdom is, has decided […]

The Guelph Mercury has reported that Marty Burke has filed a complaint with Elections Canada over the robocalls made by Frank Valeriote around the same time as somebody was blatantly misleading the public. Commissioner of Canada Elections                                                                                                                                                                        c/oElections Canada                                                                                           Dear Commissioner,  I wish […]

Not All Robocalls Are Created Equal, So Let’s Stick To The Important Ones

I almost wrote this on Friday, but I wasn’t quite in the right frame of mind. I did however take a bit of a strip off of Guelph provincial Conservative candidate Greg Schirk and strongly thought about tearing a similar one off of city councillor Cam Guthrie over Twitter because of it. The issue at […]
