Yeah This guy was out and about for bit traveling the world, seeing the sights, drinking beer and eating heart warming poutine. I was in the great white north…..again(fucking alaska) but this time it was Acton, Ontario Canada to rub elbows and cupcakes with FlashPulp‘s own Skinner Co Execs and Jr. Execs. I had a blast we recorded some podcasts and those are both live a running free as well as just enjoyed one another’s company. I can’t wait to go back it was a blast. Yes there are pictures but you gets none… lol ok so you get a few they will come in another post as I don’t have the thumb stick with them on me as I am supposed to be on the road back home but a pit stop at the farm for a couple days is always a good thing. Jrd, Opop, JMay, were wonderful hosts who spent way to fucking much money on me and thus next years balticon they will get ten fold in meat i swear it.
There isn’t much difference between the two countries how ever other than the fact Canadians 1) Can’t not drive 2) are super nice about everything. Other than those two fact there basically the same. All in all in the a fun trip and its been way to fucking long since i been up north and i will definitely try to make this a yearly thing if i can because we went to a Halloween themed amusement park(Jrd stamped it when he decided we need fast lane passes for this thing.) The rollercoasters were fucking insane leviathan my hat is off to you good mechanical beast. JMay you are going in every haunted house we can find by the way next time. We also will try to make it a two day affair next time so we ca get in some of the awesome Halloween shows and events planned.
Well if you want to hear more please stop by FlashPulp for there Flash Cast Minisode featuring Me and Protector of Regina, Throat Punch Janelle. Also you can stop by Talk Nerdy 2 Me or TN2M Facebook Page and hear us go on about horror movies and how Canada invaded my podcast lol. so until next time from the Den Big Bear is out and on the road…again?(yeesh I am out of practice)
Sigh, I think I have told my friends this numerous times but cars are easy to buy but murder to keep up. I mean seriously I drove to this years Balticon in my truck. It handled the drive lovingly. Theennnn, when we get back there was a change in the air. It all start with…a pop. yes as I was backing out of the drive to head to work there was a pop and my right tired blew out, as I had no time for changing a tire less than 20 minutes before work It had to stay until the am. Not such a bad thing right? right well the geniuses at car companies now use these lovely devices called locking lug-nuts and to remove a tire this beast of man made origin must be conquered. I maybe a rather physically menacing figure when looked at from a general stand point I mean. 6’3 280lbs big and bald well needless to say I was stumped by staggered by the two hit combo of releasing the spare tire from its cage and removing the flat. by the way Chevrolet eat a dick for your asinine spare tire mounting and torture device turned vehicle jack. as I have spotted off such craziness I will illuminate 30 minutes to struggle and wrench these lug-nuts off after a 45 minute cranking of this damned jack to raise the vehicle so it and the bad tire do not fal land crush my poor exhausted self after a shift at work. Now the really killer the spare tire house is a De Vincian device were you have to crank this turny thing to lower the device but at the same time to hve it jacked up and pressing in what your lowering to compress this spring and go back and forth between cranking to lower and lowering the jack to keep continual pressure until the tire literally falls off this industrial strength death cord. now after all is said and done( a nap 3 beers a google search for youtube videos and half a day later) I have released the imprisoned spare tire and with more grunting turning and wrench attached and cast the blown ring of rubber into the pit(bed of my pickup) and lowered the truck back upon the ground to rest were it shall sit for a month because my breaks and rotors are and make a horrible banshee squeel and grinding sound straight form the never ending story rock family. Now after forking over nearly 4 hundred bucks for a replacement tire for the front left(driver side) due to extensive tire wall damage and breaks and rotors for the front my poor baby is almost ready to roll once more just some minor things now like a tune up, and normal time/mileage based maintenance and I can stop driving the mini-can around.
so moral of the story, become a wizard and use brooms, flu powder, and port keys to get around for there cheaper and far less of a pain in my furry nerd bear butt.
