“You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.” Remember, this man considers himself qualified to be the Commander In Chief of the U.S. military. War • Read More »

Trick or Indulgence!

Sure, while the rest of the world does the popular thing and celebrates Halloween tonight, my family will quietly observe Reformation Day in our usual way: We’re going around all the houses in our neighbourhood and tacking up copies of Luther’s 95 Theses on the doors of all the houses that look Papist. And then • Read More »

Blame Canada!

for global warming (must be all those hockey rinks…). And while you’re at it, blame the French, Belgians and Luxemborgians (-borgites? -bourgieos? How about just “The Collective”? I digress…), ’cause they ain’t gonna make their targets, either. Good thing that BushCheneyRoveHaliburton are solely responsible for global warming, or else they’d have to share in the • Read More »

Remind Me

OK, while I’m not a huge fan of the new Geico “Caveman” commercials, I absolutely love the backing track for the one where he’s in the airport.  Turns out the track is by the Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp, and is titled “Remind Me”.  There is a fantastic video for the song as well (although the • Read More »

It’s because you wanna’ BE me (or us)

At the suggestion of my fellow exurbanites, I will begin blogging on a regular basis about whatever I happen to be thinking about at the time. Therefore, my apologies for the sure to be hours of your wasted time if you happen to read them. I will at sometime in the near future explain my • Read More »

Spirits of the season

October 22, 2006 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Spirits of the season | Filed in: Kevin, Religion.

The lobby of my workplace is all dolled-up for Halloween, including plastic skeletons, grinning jack-o-lanterns and mylar ghosts. Think about that for a second: A Fortune Service 500 company is acknowledging the idea of ghosts. True, they’re not saying they exist nor posing the idea that our IT department is the new Amityville Horror, (in • Read More »

Watch this space

October 19, 2006 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Watch this space | Filed in: Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics. is launching tomorrow. As Arte Johnson would say, “Veddy interestink.” It’s got some interesting people behind it, that’s for sure. Let’s see if it becomes the new Pnyx, or just dengenerates into Freepers and Kossacks yelling and flinging poo at each other.

The Essence of Truthiness

October 13, 2006 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

Peggy Noonan nails it nicely in today’s Opinion Journal: “I feel so much, therefore my views are correct and must prevail.” I find it interesting that those who would blast politicians for legislating based on their religious views have no problem overriding logic and “speaking from the heart” when (in their opinion) their cause is • Read More »

They stand on guard for us

October 8, 2006 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on They stand on guard for us | Filed in: Canada, Kevin, Military.

A month ago, Jon launched into a well-meaning (I think…) diatribe against my home country of Canada. Maybe he should have held his tongue, because according to the Democrats, Canadian soldiers are in the U.S. Military (see for yourself here). Bush lied, Canucks died! UPDATE: Discussing this with the fetching Mrs. Creighton a few minutes • Read More »

I don’t think I have ever been this mad at a television show before. The writers of the new BSG have jumped off the left side of the cliff.A little background.Those of you who know me know that I am a huge sci-fi fan, especially science fiction having anything to do with space.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as • Read More »
