I saw this quiz on facebook today and decided to try it out. Are you Hot? You Are Super Spicy You’re a little bit crazy, a little bit naughty, and a whole lot of sexy. You go beyond hot – you set people’s senses on fire! Are You Hot? He he, super spicy huh, I wonder if my friends agree?
Well then, you’re an idiot. Sorry, but it needs to be said. Check out the new video from her upcoming album Volta, Earth Intruders.

I’ve been meaning to do another post about my adventures with the KRZR for a while, but things would come up. Fashion and the Mobile Phone I’m going to start with a response to the question posed by my KRZRblogging friend Sonja from TorontoStreetFashion.com. She asks “Are mobile phones a fashion or in fashion? Do you think people notice your phone at all?” When it comes to mobile phones I’m a function over fashion girl. It’s a tool not a dress. People do notice mobile phones even in Canada, I’m guilty of it too, but it’s usually more from a technology standpoint than a design one. Software I made a comment about the KRZR software that is totally incorrect. It truly sucks. It’s beginning to remind me of my battles with my Sony MD player software back in the day. I have a couple questions for the software designers. 1. Every time I connect the phone to my computer I’m prompted to install the Motorola USB Modem software. Why is this? 2. Why must you …

James Applegath, owner of Defunkd emailed me about a great charity auction he is hosting for Africa Aid. Defunked is an online vintage t-shirt boutique specializing in the sale of rare and collectible concert t-shirts. Africa Aid, a non-profit organization which provides financial assistance to underprivileged African communities through a range of initiatives, from AIDS-related issues to education and sustainable development. It started with 20 original Live Aid concert tshirts he found at one of his supply outlets. “It is without a doubt my best discovery,” he says. “I have never come across one of these shirts, let alone twenty of them in pristine condition. I felt a little like Geraldo Rivera did, searching through Al Capone’s vaults – except I actually found something.” Having been involved in other community and charitable efforts, Applegath realized the value of these shirts extended beyond their monetary worth. “After doing some research, I learned that hunger issues in Africa have long been overshadowed by the rise in prominence over AIDS. I figured that my partnership with Africa Aid …

Blackcomb Mountain is so beautiful. In my 2005 trip, I didn’t really see much of Blackcomb. I was too busy trying to figure out which way was up. The conditions were terrible, visibility was like 5 feet, snow was blowing sideways and it was cold. I used to think Whistler was my favourite mountain but today’s trip definitely changed that. My friend Eric told me Blackcomb Glacier gives a new meaning to big. I thought he was being a bit melodramatic, I was wrong. You get the opening of this glacier and you are completely awestruck. It’s big alright, fucking big. You look down and see how tiny the other skiers are in the bowl. It took a gondola, 2 lift chairs and a t-bar to get Blackcomb Glacier from the base. We skied the glacier again but it only took 2 lift chairs and a t-bar. It’s totally worth it. My pictures will not do the glacier justice. It’s grander than grand and completely humbling; then you get to ride it. w00t! Note: this …
Okay, the title of this post is kinda cruel but I’m enjoying my time in Whistler, BC. I skied some of Whistler mountain on Monday and hit Blackcomb mountain today. Apparently, we are going to get a dumping of snow on Thursday, so I’m getting giddy for the powder. w00t. I’m taking a bunch of pictures but I don’t have a laptop so you’ll have to see them when I get back. I’m posting this from my friend’s Powerbook. Skiing is like riding a bike, you never forget how to do it. Those 10+ years of skiing regularly in my youth has helped me move back into black diamond territory. I’m still not brave or good enough to attempt the double black diamond runs. Talk to you soon readers. Regular blogging will start on April 8, 2007 image: kidrobot.com
I’m away this week folks. I’ll be Whistler, BC hanging out and relaxing. I’ll try to blog while I’m there, but I’m not making promises. I’ll be back to regular blogging on April 8. In the mean time, you can check the archives for past posts.
