June 4th Memorial Demonstration - Toronto

Twenty-one years after the fateful day when students all over China rallied for freedom and democracy, Chinese people all over the world still continue to remember and grieve over what has been lost that day and what will surely come in the future. There can never be a definitive answer to who is right and who is wrong, but what is sure is that popular representation is what China need more than ever. Let us not forget the dreams of those brave students.

Anime North - Photo Report Part 1 Cosplays

To be completely frank, I honestly didn't expect this level of variety at an anime festival, but there he is, standing right in front of me, Arthur Dent from the most succesful book to ever be published by the Ursa Minor Publishing company, the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy! Here's the rest of the photographs I took at the Anime North convention, being posted after a terribly long delay. Enjoy!

Anime North Day One - Fans and costumes everywhere, but not a bit COURAGE to be found...


Set out from school for the Toronto Congress Centre at around 4:00 and as soon as I got onto the bus, I knew this wasn't going to be some small convention where only the hardcore will be attending. Interestingly enough, though many of the geeks are dressed in plain clothes, it's very obviously who they are and what they're after when they gather in hordes like this.

Changing news stories isn't nearly as awesome as change Getter

Ian Bush, 22 year old and dead from a shot to the back of his head, but that's not the point here.

For the first time, I saw a news story being changed within a day of the initial report.

This morning, CBC Radio 1 reported an incident where a police killed a son of a woman in BC in an act of self defence. The women went ahead and filed a lawsuit against the police, not with the intention of prosecuting the officer, but rather to draw attention to cases like this where the killing could have been prevented and to encourage change in the police's internal structure. Upon hearing from the police that there are plans to refine this internal investigation system of the police, she promptly dropped the lawsuit, acknowledging that the financial burden is also a bit too much at the moment for her. At least this is what is said in the initial version of the story.
