Dan Phillips Explains Exurbs…

… and waste in the building industry, apperceptive mass,  Apollonian versus Dionysian perspectives, the myth of the cost of labour, the Platonic model of the American dream house, Dr. Pepper, the divided self, why our shoes all match, Wildebeests, designer jeans, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and the thrill of putting your CD rack where ever the hell you want because you can just move it again if you’ve made a mistake — all in this hilarious and inspiring 18 minute TED Talk. Really worth watching — you’ll never see Harbour Landing the same way again.


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
