Canadian Internet

When I heard this story on CBC Radio's news program This is That, I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

Apparently there is a group out there, the Association of Canadian Content, who wants to make only Canadian sites available to people surfing the Internet in Canada. A Canadian Only Internet.

I was hoping this was a joke but I'm even more worried about this now that these previews of Canadian only sites have surfaced online.

Hill BSS Poster Boy

In the 2010 Fall Semester at the University of Regina I joined (well, I guess I was accepted or "made the cut" so to speak) the Paul J. Hill School of Business Students' Society, the Hill BSS.

My job? Poster Designer. Not the most prestigious position, heck I think I was the last name listed on the BSS Depth Chart, but it was definitely the most fun. I got to work with pretty much everyone on the BSS at least once to design posters, flyers, tickets, and web banners for various events and activities.

Looking back, it was just a lot of fun to get involved, in my second year at the U of R, with an awesome group of people who will no doubt dominate in the near future.

One of the posters that I happened to get a lot of positive feedback from, which was also one of my favourite posters to create, was for the Halloween "Moster Mash Bash." So, since it's that time of year, I thought I'd use Halloween as an excuse to showcase some of my work with the BSS.


Check them out and let me know what you think.

Shades of Pixar in Parade Floats

For me, the Creelman Fair (put on by the Creelman Agricultural Society) is the biggest event of the year and in 20 years I haven't missed one.

One of the highlights of the annual fair is the Parade that goes down the service road, adjacent to Highway 33, turns down Main Street, and then heads to the fair grounds. When I was younger, my dream was always to build a float and one day be a part of the Creelman Fair Parade.

One day, about a week before the fair in 2003, on an old flat bed trailer in my Oma's shed, my brothers, cousins, and I got to work on what would be our first of many parade floats. "Hockey Night in Creelman" was a success, it was our "Toy Story".

So what are the other connections to Pixar Animation Studios? Well...
