For those of you too ignorant to realize that you should be listening to Edge 102 in the mornings, i’m going to do you the service of keeping you updated on a contest they have going on called The Edge Wheel Of Sloth. The idea being they get all kinds of people with nothing better to do to show up and participate in rediculous contests. If they get through the contest they are entered in a draw. The winner of this draw will win one year of free living. Their bills, their taxes, their groceries, their gas, EVERYTHING is paid for for one year.
Today’s contest was a thing of beauty. They had 4 people show up and told them that they would be riding the Yonge Street bus up and down Yonge in Toronto for 24 strait hours with no breaks to get off for any reason. For any of you who have ever ridden this bus you know it’s an unpleasant experience. In fact the name for this site came from that particular bus line as it is called the vomit comet.
One particularly poor man showed up at the studio with no bus fare to get on the bus. He had spent all the money he had (save for $1.50) on getting down to the studio. The bus costs $2.25 so Dean (the host) offered to give him the other $0.75 if he agreed to spend the entire 24 hours on the bus in just hix boxers. At first the guy said no but then Dean offered to give him 3 cookies also so he agreed stating that he hadn’t eaten since thanksgiving dinner and didn’t know when he’d be able to afford to eat again. Classy.
Long story short. they all completed the task but not without insident. The guy in the boxers was punched twice by other passengers for refusing to put pants on and one of the women spent a good 4 hours doing dry heeves and throwing up when she hit about hour 20. You can’t say they didn’t earn theiir shot I guess. Sounds like the guy in the boxers could sure use the chance to live free for a year. Keep your fingers crossed for him.
So I guess this is the part where I say “welcome to the blog, hope you enjoy it” and generally introduce myself to the world. So hi, welcome to the Vomit Comet, hope you enjoy it. Look at that, 30 seconds in and I’m already misquoting myself.
Ok ok, stuff about me. All you really need to know is that my name is Steve and I have a big mouth but an even bigger ass. Just ask Matt, I’m sure he’d be happy to tell you how much of a fat tub O shit I am and well, I can’t say he’d be all that far off the mark. I’ve seen fatter tubs containing much more shit but I’m not exactly on the slim side.
I also have a weekly radio show that I’ll be whoring out quite a bit, like now for instance. The show is called Off The Beaten Track, because that’s the name it had when I took it over from the people who used to have it and I just never bothered changing it because I didn’t want to confuse the guy who listened to it. Over time the show has grown to the point where we now have a different guy who listens to it and he seems to like it. If you want to check it out go to www.uoguelph.ca/cfru and pick the stream that works for you. Right now it’s hit or miss if either of them will because there is some technical work being done to try to fix streaming problems that they’ve been having. Give it a shot and see what happens though, maybe it’ll actually work or something.
Anyway the show is a 2 hour roundup of weird news and other such things from around the world. We also play music which could range anywhere from punk to bluegrass depending on what sort of mood we’re in that day. Lots of times you’ll hear both in the same show because we try to make things different, or off the beaten track if you will. See what I did there? Anyway the show airs from noon to 2 PM eastern time so check it out. Check out the station anyway, they’ve got something for everybody there, even those of you who like crap. Yes, we’ve got plenty of crap.
Ok, that’s it from me for now. I’ll be back when time permits with something else, not sure what that is yet though. In the meantime, read the stuff Matt wrote, then read this again. This post is so long that by the time you’ve finished it, there’ll probably be something new that you haven’t seen yet.

At recent check, I have 7 people on my MSN list that have names that piss me right off. Now, before someone accuses me of being a hypocrate.. just hold on.
I’m not saying that everyon’es name should just be their first name and that’s it. That’s no fun. I don’t see any problem with someone posting a joke, a song lyric, something that happened to them or whatever as their log-in name. But come on. Using your name to tell me in no uncertain terms who you voted for in the provincial election last week is dumb. Then for the rest of the day having a name that chants for the political party like a cheap sporting event… get lost with that stuff. Keep it off my screen.
Anyway, I know most of you who know me will still say that was hypocritical and to that I’ll reply. Piss off! It’s my site and i’ll say what I wanna.
Well, been trying for a long time now to find a place to rant and rave about nothing in particular and I guess this is as good a place as any… So now you get to listen to me and Steve whine and moan about just about anything under the sun. We’re very unhappy people, y’know? Hopefully through this we can share just a little bit of that unhappiness with you and bring you down off that damn pedistol you sit on you cocky bastard!! Anyway, that’s all for now. gotta figure out how to post this,
