6-in-the-morning1 PAUL McCARTNEY: APPARENTLY REEEEALLY GOOD The Winnipeg Free Press reviews last night’s show. He’s here tomorrow. As always, meat is not on the menu.

4 FIGHTING BIKE THIEVES The StarPhoenix has a good story. Bike theft is a crime against civilization and the environment.

5 MARCH OF THE PAYWALLS The Toronto Star is getting one. Are the halcyon days of news aggregation coming to an end? More importantly, can I buy on freaking package for $25/month that’ll give me access to all of Canada’s daily papers? If we’re going to start charging for the Internet we’re going to need a system that actually works.

  1. Hey man, that scene from Breaking Bad was bad ass. Jesse in the background, not giving a damn, while the geeks groove. Heh, animation rocked. Sweet graphics.

    Now, about the Sir Paul McCartney concert, which I was at, and took voluminous photos and videos, from the nose-bleed 26th row and last row of the second deck, rock-show baby. Regina will party.

    Saw a couple in Rider Green, and asked about the new stadium, “are you GREEN with envy.” They laughed.

    Okay, those are the words my brain cells can cobble together. Have fun.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Chris. And see, Regina? People from WINNIPEG have Gravatars! Get yours and have a cool icon on this blog. That is how fun works! FUN, people!

  3. Sir Paul is a veger ,so the crew could have had fish..
    Why pay ? When peeps send tweets from newspapers sites I can usually read most of the online content.. I’ll never pay for old news,other time zones cover a lot before it gets here…
