Here at La Maison we are severely addicted to popcorn. And not that microwavable shit, not the jiffy pop, and no we dont have a fancy popcorn machine. We straight up make it on the stove, in a pot and let me just tell you it is the ONLY way to enjoy that crunchy treat.

1. Stove goes on high or max or whatever.
2. Pot gets some olive oil to coat the bottom. (I use olive oil and i'm no chef but i'm pretty certain any oil will do, so long as it's not motor oil).
3. Kernels get poured into pot. Your kernal to oil ratio should be like.. I dunno coat the shit with oil.
4. Cover and wait...occasional pot shuffling is ok.
5. Popping commences! Move that shit around so it doesnt burn.
6. When popping stops its ready so pour it into your serving dish of choice and season it however the eff you want! (I suggest salt, Danielle suggests salt, sugar, and cinnamon).

Eat it up, I swear you wont go back to the microwave.
On that note- editing essay 2 of 3 calls for huge amounts of the stuff, so I better get poppin'.

I changed my picture...

But you still don't know what I look like!
Unless you happen to be one of the lucky people who actually know me.

*Update: I'm an idiot. Just scroll down...

This can end please. Those stickers are not meant to stay on damnit!
And do they not inhibit your vision?
Your glasses would just look better without 'em. New trend summer 09.

Apologies if you recognize yourself in one of these photos, there are far too many people who commit the same crime that I would rather use but I found your pictures first. I like you two I promise!! and probably the most since I got your pics first!


Everything I read these day seems to mention the band Wavves. I guess the general consensus is that people are diggin em. So today I decided to download and have now come to the conclusion that they are rad as fuck!Kev is always on top of hip shit and obviously blogged about em on March 4. So what if i'm a little late. Go listen/download.

Happy Sunday

Who knew staying in London over the weekend could be so productive?

One of my favourite humans of all time, Meredith, came to visit me this weekend. With her she brought some highly missed articles of clothing- red Urban Outfitters tshirt, American Apparel white tshirt dress (Dang why am I so trendy with my shopping!) and a pair of jeans she's had for maybe 2 years. Low hand behold I was reunited with my size 0 (yes, ZERO) Abercrombie & Fitch boot cut ripped jeans that I purchased in either grade 9 or 10. Since I had some time to kill waiting for Mere to return from her sleepover date, I decided the best thing to do would be to make these onced adored jeans wearable again.Not 100% sure how I still fit into these badboys, but now that they are skinnier I do believe i'm gonna continue their legacy.

6 pages of essay, 1 finished novel, 1 must see film seen, and altered jeans! I'm on a roll. A roll that will continue after I am done my soup and return to Starbucks for another solid essay sesh.Happy Sunday.
Despite all the essay writing that has been taking place this past week I've actually done two things that I normally don't ever have time for: finished a book and watched one of those movies that everyone has seen but because I suck I never have.So for the first time this semester I actually finished a book for school. Usually I get 3/4 of the way through, realize I have to have another one read, put it down and move onto the next. This time I actually pulled through and finished Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club. Ive never seen the movie (ya, I know, I suck) so the story was totally new to me. (Although I was still able to picture Brad Pitt whenever Tyler Durden came up). Anyway, I liked it, I had the end ruined for me because we talked about it in class before it was done, and since it was a book for school Ive already torn the thing to pieces so not talking about it anymore good bye.

Then for the same class I watched American Psycho. We read an excerpt of the book for class so I thought it'd be cool to watch the whole movie. It was motherfucked. And again, all I could think about was how it applied to the class, which it did very well, but it also petrified me and taught me that I never want to be a hooker or get into the limos of strange men.

The end, back to essays.

Fuck the Police II.

My friendly neighbour spied me driving down his street in order to examine the exact location of his house. Mellow, right?

Get a knock on my door from our favourite neighbourhood police officer. Bitch called the cops on me FOR DRIVING DOWN HIS STREET.

So I gave him a piece of my mind... via letter since I have been banned from his portion of Sherwood Avenue.

Mr Backx,

Although I can understand your desire to appear as a witness for the case against me this past March 27, I do not have any appreciation for your assumption that my appearance on your street following the trial was an attempt of vandalism. No part of me wishes to vandalize your property or harass you individually, and my visit to your home was purely to understand the proximity of our two residences in order to refrain from disturbing you again.

I hope you can understand the stress this situation has caused me the past six months, and the last thing I need is more police showing up at my door with questions regarding my behaviour. I would appreciate if you would refrain from jumping to conclusions about my actions or the actions of my friends from now on.

I hope my birthday parties don't disturb you in the future.

Fuck the Police.

I need to stop getting/attempting to fight tickets. Just wasted 4 hours of my life sitting in court trying to get out of a noise ticket that we got back on my birthday (September). The old guy that hated his life enough to call the police on us actually turned up to court to fight against us. Thanks so much for that. By the time the whole thing was over our fine was INCREASED. Wicked. I love the Ontario Judicial System.

If anyone ever feels the need to egg a house, I suggest 192 Sherwood Avenue. London, Ontario.

Blogging like its my job..

It's essay season, don't blame me.


This is the funniest thing. Read the whole thing you will not regret it.

Or if you're lazy, just read this:

This new rave is that of "the gypsy", a hybrid that takes everything vagrant, hessian skater, and metal head and straps this aggregate low-life to a snowboard. Essentially, they’re the Ali Boulalas (a one-of-a-kind, pro-skateboarding hessian-ista) of wintersports. While many of these "gypsies" may drive Audi’s to the hill, they offset reality by wearing leather jackets and ripped black jeans on snow (blouses optional). Into their now-rarely washed hair, they twist various gypsy trinkets, dreamcatchers, and bottle caps. In the park, they can be spotted by their Think Thank-esque noseblocks and bonks and their greater tendency to avoid larger features and jumps altogether. While gypsy steeze might hurt your off-hill game anywhere that's not, say, Portland, Oregon, chances are your local terrain park is already beginning to resemble the extras crew from Pirates of the Caribbean.

Thank you Jeff Kalman for finding this gem!

The way I see it #4827164

Being trapped in Starbucks, forcing myself to type out page 2 of almost 30 pages worth of essay makes me wanna blurb about random things that don't have to do with Killer Culture, the Culture Vulture, or any other MITesque topics. BUT I can't think of anything as creative as urinals or clementines so you're stuck with knowing what i've been listening to as i type away.

I suggest you illegally download:

The Snake, The Cross, The Crown- Cotton Teeth
Royksopp- Junior
Bon Iver- Blood Bank EP
Cut Copy- In Ghost Colours

I'd provide links but i'm too lazy and have 28 more pages to type so eff right off.

End note- To the couch cuddlers across from me. Get outta town.

The most powerful country in the universe? Try the most hated.

Dear my American friends-
If you're gonna choose to keep living down there at least stop watching Fox News.

Then host Greg Gutfeld (seems like a silly name for a man...) "apologizes"... Read.

Silly Americans.
100th Post!

Stuff White People Like

This is hilarious:

#104 Girls With Bangs

If you see a white woman and you are trying to figure out whether she is liked or just merely tolerated by white people, the best thing you can do is get a quick look at her haircut. It is a known fact that white people love women who wear their hair with bangs that hang straight down.

A number of very popular white women have worn this hairstyle including Joni Mitchell, Jane Birkin, Jenny Lewis and every girl ever photographed by Vice Magazine or the Cobrasnake. (Note: it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with these two things as they are both beloved by cool white people. Follow up note: these same things are hated by cooler white people).

Many people associate this type of haircut with children and people looking for the most efficient way to get hair out of their eyes. But for white people, this simple haircut makes a bold declaration by saying that the wearer is artistic, deep, and has probably dated a guy in a band you like. Of course, as with many things loved by white people, simple often means expensive and these haircuts usually cost upwards of $100.

It is essential for you to know this haircut is more than a mere fashion statement– it is an important cultural marking. Throughout the world, many cultures feature ceremonies to announce that a girl has become a woman. For white people, the haircut-with-bangs is an important symbol that a female has completed her transformation from a nerdy girl to a cool woman. In fact, if you went to high school with a nerdy white girl who moved to a big city, there is a good chance she will show up to your high school reunion with this haircut.

When you are introduced to a group of white people, it’s a good idea to befriend the girl with the bangs. She’s probably the most popular.

Buss Passin'

Today and tomorrow students at UWO have the chance to vote on a referendum that will either cost students some cash but allow them to keep the bus pass or eliminate the bus pass all together.

I just voted YES because I like the bus pass thank you very much. It is worth 10 dollars more added to my tuition.

If you feel like you care about this at all or actually go to Western and want to vote click here.

If you dont give 2 fucks you may be entertained by how horribly ugly the voting website is:
I propose a new referendum that would call for an increase in tuition fees to hire someone who knows how to design a website.

The most delicious thing ever..
Although now I'm quite sure I've eaten so many that I will not be able to consume them again for quite some time.
Either way, if you enjoy the taste of Buffalo (like me) but do not quite enjoy the disgustingness involved with chicken wings (like me) these are quite a satisfactory alternative.

Dedicated to DB

Happy Birthday--
now s my d.

Did you know that the sister of Mel B (ie Melanie Brown) is named Danielle?

Happy BDay DaniB and thank you for spicing up my life.

Kanye's New Workout Plan

I originally never wanted to go here because I thought it'd be a zoo/was intimidated by all the skinny work out betches who knew how to use all the machines.

I proved myself wrong and have officially been 2 days in a row.

I also spilled red wine on my jacket today (it's off white), bought new black jeans because mine have decided to go on a ripping spree, and have officially began getting sick again.

Now everyone's going to get hyper to Steve Aoki at Mansion and I will stay home, not drink more red wine because it has been spilled, and do assignments.

Hypocrisy is annoying but not evil. Someone who says one thing and does another has doubled their chances of being half right.

My Starbucks cup-

How I see it# 297.
When I was young I was misled by flash cards ino believing that xylophones and zebras were much more common.

I think these days flashcards probably don't even say such silly things like xylophone and zebra. They probably teach kids that X stands for Xbox and Z stands for Zombies.Come on... what the hell is a wigwam! Surely you can come up with something better than that.
