I've always found myself amusing, now it's time to expand on that audience. Created to develop an incredible ego and delusional sense of grandeur. It's all about me...come enjoy!

Cineplex (Galaxy) buys Famous Players

Cineplex is buying up Famous Players....Horray! We have another monopoly. Expect ticket prices to rise just before all the Oscar heavy weights start rolling out in December.

Google Images

I've been getting a lot of hits lately on a post from March 20th about Star Wars Episode III. People have been coming by way of Google Images.

Now do you think I could find it using Google Images?...NO!

I tried every combination of everything I could think of to see if I could find it and everytime nothing! I've even tried using several other Google's from different countries and still nothing. The stats tracker I use tracks keywords from search engines but doesn't register anything from Google Images.

If you happen to come across this page by googling the above image please leave a comment on what you typed in to find it.

One cool think I did find is if you enter "Mordant Orange Strip" Every image is of the comic strip I attempted to run for a little over a month. Very Cool.

$200 Car Wash

I decided to wash my absolutely filthy car on the weekend. It was a beautiful day so I dug out the pressure washer and went to work.

I sprayed the windshield with the pressure washer and noticed what appeared to be a piece string or something sitting on it just above the wipers. I sprayed it again trying to wash away. I watched in horror as the “string” instantly doubled in size and spread halfway up the windshield.

Apparently I must’ve had a stone chip in the windshield and the combination of the hot windshield, cold water and the pressure from the sprayer cause the small chip to crack under the rapid temperature change. I know have a nice crack on the passenger’s side that goes up above half the windshield.

So now I’m going to need to replace my windshield…hooray another expense, just what I needed!

Useless Articles

I love coming across totally useless articles put out by major new organizations. I don't know if it's a result of a slow news day or laziness on the writer's part.

Here's a gem I found today.


Here's the start of the article title Summer to be a hot one by CTV.ca News Staff

Environment Canada's Weather Office has issued its forecast for this summer's weather and they say it's going to be a hot one.


In fact, they're really not sure.

Maybe I should've gone into journalism, the competition looks pretty weak.

I apologize for anyone who’s been checking back with any regularity looking for new and interesting posts. I’ve been extremely busy with other things and have pushed the blog to the back burner. My scheduled seems to have settled down recently and looks like I can start putting more time into my blog.

Things to look forward to:

  • Summer movie season – I’ll try to give a half ass review on what to avoid and what you should check out based on what I get a chance to check out this summer. I usually try to get out to the movies at least once a week.

  • Cartoons – I’ve been doing some reading on cartooning with hopes to advance my cartooning ability. I’ve abandoned The Chronicles of A Mordant Orange (for now) but I am currently working on some single panel cartoons that I hope to post and who knows maybe even sell.

  • A New website – I think I’ve out grown Blogger and grown tired of the hassles that arise from time to time. I’ve installed movable type and hope to have a new site up running. I’ll drop the link and setup an auto-forward to anyone that comes to this site by way of www.mordantorange.com

  • So stay tuned. Hopefully it will be fun and exciting, at the very least it will be a different colour!

    Rat Bastards!

    I've come into work and found mouse crap on my desk which kind of pisses me off because the little bastards do it right on my keyboard. The must think they’re funny.

    I’ve come into work to find mouse piss on my desk which really pisses me off, filthy little bastards. It’s probably two mice; trying to up the ante of the other one that likes to crap on my keyboard,

    Today I come in and find that the little bastards have now taken to chewing my mouse...little bastards!

    This just drives me crazy because they've chewed right where I rest my thumb. It's all rough and every time I put my hand on it I'm going to think of those little bastards.

    I guess it's time setup the mouse trap on my desk...again! The previous winter there was a mouse problem in the office. I personally caught 6 mice with a trap behind my monitor on my desk.

    The only question now is do I get the humane trap with the trap door or do I go with the classic clothes peg style that will break their neck like a twig?
