  1. Where's the Kman?

    Okay I warned Ya! Understand: I personally selected the live tree, felled myself, stripped it , then squared with an adz. Had an Old Order Mennonite friend help me hand saw the boards,then put it all together...this art form, although two dimensional, should attempt to be envisioned in three dimensions. There are stories within stories here accordingly done to the old techniques....all correct and proper to the old ways/rules. This is a traditional ceremonial mortuary board according to the Haida technique. Quick things to look for: Title: The Final Cull Of The Great Leeds Rhino By The Toronto Wolfpack! (White Cedar/Pounded Copper) Panel 1: 'Wolf Meet Leeds Rhino'; notice in Panel One the TWP timberwolf meeting the Leeds Rhino for the first time; FINALLY CONTACT!; ears are back;muzzle closed (do you see it DP?)-that is only the first depth there are 4 more but finer to the trained eye. Panel 2: Wolf Attacks The Rhino!; Notice the ears in attack (up/back; lunge is being made;notice teeth) many other things if you know what the symbols mean and their sequencing. That me between the Panels...can you see what I'm doing? Above and below me is my personal tag. It took many hours to make and the whole time I envisioned the game of the TWP beating the Rhinos...it is important that this is done since it puts 'power and spirit' into the piece..I'm happy with it.. What do you think: Gotcha DP...Gotcha didn't I?

  4. Plastics in the ocean

    Much of it is generic.e.g. needles and such. wish I had a photo but don't...there are used gauze pads with remnants of blood and everything (just slightly pink because of being immersed in water...surgery stuff...tape...generic health packaging.... To be frank I really try to avoid it at all costs because it is very gross and the needles are worrying...remember I'm on my own in the deep brush/wilderness on these trips and a priority must be lack of injury; especially burns and cuts. I've included a photo of my approach to the nicest beach of all (very few know of it or have ever been there), the last of the great untouched dunes/desert from the last major Ice Age....untouched purity my friends! The most beautiful and untouched Garden of Eden...many unique and endangered species of flora/ fauna (I was there, with permission as a Field Naturalist)... YUP!...you guessed it....found some plastic on the beach!

    Only if they are eating some kind of strange far off pudding and washing it down with Screech....all seems to make sense by the time you get to the bottom of the bottle! Like some kind of universal language or something ᐊᒐᐦᑯᐢ ᒪᐦᐃᐦᑲᓐ
  12. Plastics in the ocean

    And their used medical supplies?????...too expensive due to the diseases et., al. to properly dispose of at next docking site. Alot easier just to dump it....I think thats why I find it concentrated in small isolated beaches...I think it is being dumped from boats. As a person actually told me about dumping manure into water supplies many years ago: "The SOLUTION to POLLUTION is DILUTION!"-they thought they were being smart.

    How dare you DP...HOW DARE YOU!!!! You know that these are First Nations words and therefore change with their spellings within each nations...you are linguistically allowed to modify them....if I culturally identify with that spelling then it is correct...you have just culturally appropriated them (and you should know better)!!! There is even a form of Canadian English (not just British) and the rules allow this (same with the Yanks and Aussies; don't know about the Kiwis though). You guys havent't done the Brexit yet! Don't force me to report you to the European Human Rights Commission On Culturally Appropriate Language(s) et. al. You could be in big, big trouble. Do you have any idea how many committees they have? Plus I just might report you to Oxford and that damn Red Brigade of his. While I was away, amongst other things, I carved a large piece in the very old traditional style with the old knifes with one High Cree word on it (one word)...do you read Cree DP? Don't make me post it here....you had better not. Don't make me do it! It would terrify Parksider to visually see the monster he has awakened. The name of the art piece in question (and I'm not kidding about the title; you didn't know that I was a traditional carver did you?): Title: The Final Cull Of The Great Leeds Rhino By The Toronto Wolfpack! Medium:White Cedar/pounded copper. People seem to like it....a large piece. DON"T MAKE ME !!!!....don't you dare!

    The only way we will get better is to play better...sort of a catch 22...we will get there I guarantee it...its been pre ordained by the Rugby Gods...our destinies are forever linked now! Wiarton Willie even says so and he IS connected!

    Got ya man...literally as I'm reading this my wife is leaving the door to go to the garage and just said."Its really icy out there!" Its fun doing stuff in the snow (camping in a quinzy is a great experience); I love cross country skiing and snow shoeing: its the low temperatures and windchill that kill! all the best now where did I put my full snowmobile suit, muckluks and full toque with front facial covering (no I'm not going to rob a bank; just trying to get to work! )
