Huddling against the sun. This is one of Phoebe Snow's most famous songs. It is great to see a live performance.

20:51 Are you doing it right? »Acts of Volition
“…If you’re the anal one in your house who’s rinsing the yogurt out of the yogurt containers before you throw ’em out, YOU ARE RIGHT. YOU ARE DOING IT RIGHT.” Roman Mars from Episode 341 – National Sword of the podcast 99% Invisible
13:08 Alita: Battle Angel hauls in $27 million at the weekend box office »John Cairns Blog
Movie box office news now. For a long time, all the top talk was about how Alita: Battle Angel was going to be this huge expensive flop at the cinemas. This is despite the fact that its producer James Cameron and its director Robert Rodriguez were both involved in its making. The numbers are in...

07:53 Reboot »Diary of a Squirrel
Today is Islander Day, a Major Holiday - a Deep Holiday, if you will (meaning most businesses and provincial government offices are closed), so I figured Squirrel and the gang deserve a holiday today too.

Take it away, nib-pen drawn Bernie and Ert...







07:48 Red Skaarl »The Monkey Rodeo
This turned out to be a pretty quick shoot, despite the fact I hadn't totally nailed down the design before I started. I had a couple horn and wig options that I wasn't sure about so we had to run through all that pretty quick.

Monday, February 18th 6:30am.. A low pressure system currently approaching Cape Cod has spread cloud across the island this morning with snow falling along the southern tip of NS. This system will continue to move eastward passing south of NS … Continue reading

DREAM- khalom- (2472 & 2492) Root: חֲלוֹם Sounds like: kha-lohm (rhymes with shalom) A co-worker of mine recently told me she had a dream about me: She was feeling anxious and ran outside of her home in distress. Suddenly she was knocking on my door. I opened it up, invited her in, and offered her… Continue reading KHALOM: Speaking of DREAMs
17:30 Weather report: it’s not winter everywhere »John Cairns Blog
Watching the Daytona 500 today makes me crazy and jealous. My current location is under a pile of snow (after being under extreme cold warnings for days), but it sure looks nice today in Florida. Daytona Beach is currently 26 C. Not far away in Orlando it is 29 C. Other current temperatures for popular...
08:10 Free TV »Island Musings
I was asked again how to obtain ‘almost free’ TV and to keep it simple I will outline what I think is necessary.  An internet connection with download speed of at least 10 Mbps. Check your speed at fast.com.  An Android TV box. I recommend the best. Nvidia Shield. (Approx $200 on sale.) A software&ellipsis;Read the full post »

I like how a whisker has rainbow light. Purrl is a star with a rainbow. Debbie Adshade has been a friend since the early '70's. Her music is still wonderful. She most likely played all the guitar parts on the album along with the vocals. She recently put her new album, Toss the Bones, up on Youtube. Here is one cut.

13:37 Trump declares a national emergency! An “invasion” at the southern border? Really? »John Cairns Blog
On the heels of yesterday’s left-wing lunacy with the killing of the Amazon-to-NYC deal comes today’s right-wing lunacy, as Pres. Donald Trump declares a national emergency at the southern border as (a) a way to bypass Congress and fund his “wall” and (b) his way to approve the deal to keep the government from shutting...

09:21 Behind the scenes of a snarky blog post »Acts of Volition
On my lovely-but-brisk walk to work this morning, I was listening to episode 346 of the Shop Talk Show, a great podcast about front-end Web development. The smart and delightful hosts, Chris and Dave were discussion how React has become such a dominant force in Web development. I opened up the WordPress app on my … 
08:54 Do not reply / Ne répondez pas »Acts of Volition
I might start initiating conversations the way the Canada Revenue Agency does in its emails: “Don’t respond to this, but …”
08:43 Hot-Reload Time Machine »Acts of Volition
I took a spin in a time machine this morning. I jumped seven years into the future and what I saw was chilling. Everywhere I looked Web developers were working diligently to remove React as dependency from their Web projects.

The focus is pretty wonky in the top shot. I know now why it was not used previously.

17:53 Third-rate hack politicians have driven the new Amazon HQ out of New York! »John Cairns Blog
Aaargh! This is surely the reaction in New York City today. The news is that Amazon.com has buckled under the weight of local political opposition in New York, and have scrapped plans for locating their headquarters there. That is 25,000 jobs that were coming to New York, gone, just like that. Who is to blame?...
16:40 Happy Valentine’s Day, Gritty! Philly’s crazed mascot gets dumped »John Cairns Blog
I hate Valentine’s Day, it is the one day of the year where I get reminded that my love life is pathetic. Fortunately, we are also reminded a lot of other people are in the same boat, and so we can all find a way to laugh about it. One video that gave me a...

The original shot of this nasturtium bloom was orange throughout. I pressed that magic, auto button again and presto, different colours appeared before me. I don't believe the turquoise is even a colour in nature, not previously seen in my garden anyhow.

These pink poppies are one of my favorite subjects. It doesn't matter their stage. They are still photogenic.

17:13 A History of OffStage Theatre »The Annekenstein Monster
From 1991 to 1995, OffStage Theatre was a bare-bones, smaller-than-small independent theatre company in Charlottetown. Its King (and Fool) was David Moses. I was his Number One, I guess, and learned a whole heck of a lot during this time. Most all of it from David. Others named in this history more or less came … Continue reading A History of OffStage Theatre
