That’s not streaking

Someone should tell this guy how streaking is supposed to be done. He took his pants off, but kept his underwear on when he disrupted the Jays vs. Boston game on Friday. The police removed him.

Endangered Gorilla shot after boy falls into zoo enclosure

Posted on by vicki.tyler

Many are questioning the decision of Cincinnati Zoo officials to shoot a 400-pound male gorilla, after a four-year-old boy fell into the gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo on Sunday. The boy was grabbed by the 400-pound gorilla, but the gorilla did not harm him. Zoo officials fearing for the child’s safety, sent in a special animal response team that shot and killed the gorilla. The boy’s family says they’re grateful to the staff for saving his life, but are saddened by the death of the endangered western lowland gorilla. The boy has since been released from hospital.

Weird, it works in the video games

So I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure I’d be hiding in the corner if this went down. Watch this seven-year-old boy from Maryland, try to stop a robbery at a Game Stop store. Seriously, this kid is throwing punches! It may work in the video games, but in real life…not so much

The music community in North Bay lost a true legend this Monday when Steve Clarke passed away from a brain tumour.  Even if you didn’t know Steve personally, chances are you were at an event or nightclub where one of his bands played in the last 50 years.  Steve was the drummer for local groups The Prophets and Weekend Crew among others, and I was lucky enough to play with him in a group called Blackwater in the mid 90′s.  Steve was more than a talented musician – he was a good friend to many, particularly in the music community.  He was like an elder statesman of the music scene in North Bay and was always willing to help a fellow musician with kind words of wisdom or advice.  Steve worked at Boart Longyear for many years, and owned his own business, RePercussion Drum Shop.  That big smile will remain with me forever.  He was truly one of a kind.  My thoughts are with Steve’s wife Louise, his children Melissa and Tyler and grandchildren Jackson and Molly during this difficult time.
Steve’s family will receive family and friends at Hillside Funeral Services on Airport Road this Saturday, May 28th from 2-4pm and 7-9pm and his friends in the musical community will make beautiful noise in his honour during the Songs For Steve event Sunday from 2pm to midnight at The Voyager.  I hope you can make it out to help us pay tribute to a beautiful soul.  Check out the lineup below and click the play button to hear my interview with Brian Risk, Colin Norwood and Gunner Grolman.

Today we learned that a man responsible for putting Canadian rock music on the map for the past three decades, Canadian icon, Gord Downie has been diagnosed with Terminal Brain Cancer.

The band then revealed they’ll be embarking on a final tour this summer. “This feels like the right thing to do now,“ they said. “For Gord and for all of us…We’re going to dig deep and try to make this our best tour yet.“ Dates for the tour will arrive later this week.
