It's a bioutifoul City! If only it were a little closer to Montreal and Europe...

Here are a couple of pictures i took :)

Tourist







I have been playing tourist around town a little :) It's a little gray, but that's how Montreal is after the festivities. We have the Igloofest and the lights festivals comming up, and then all we can do is wait for the spring. Half-way there mates!
I have been inspired by Boogie who is not in Bangkok, playing REAL tourist. I'm incredibly jealous.

Politics.

Is the democracy we live in today inefficient?


I don't know much about politics but when someone tries to explain to me the political agenda of any politician, I find things I approve and others I disapprove. Maybe it is one of the many reasons I still can not decide: Am I a democrat, a republican, a conservative, a liberal, right or left, bottom or up? 


And what's the use anyways? You can see for yourself that since in the past people have taken over countries completely legally (*cough* Hitler) the system has made it extremely difficult to pass ANY kind of law without the senate, the house of representative etc agreeing. 


Any kind of change, even if it's what almost everybody wants, is very difficult to make. ( Repealing of don't ask don't tell in USA? )


Democracy is good, but democracies can be different can't they? What if we voted for specific law projects, and not a person that promised us certain changes that we are not likely to get anyways? What if I want taxes raised but i am for the don't ask don't tell policy? do I vote republican or democrat? 


But this idea is not likely to work because guess who would have to vote for it to happen: the state! and they are the first not to want that, not depending in any ways in what party they are in. I would not want to loose a nice job like that!


I was just saying... making mini-referendums all the time could be better for people that did not pick a definite side. You don't need to know much about the political program and less political bulsh*ting would be involved....i guess. Politics should not be about picking the better option of the two. (I know, there is a lot of parties, but everyone know it is always between the two bigest)

This is the "fat ballerina"
I drew her when I was 6 years old, and haven't been able to draw anything better since,
All ballerinas where skinny and I thought it was kind of unfair for fatter people, It's discrimination!
The ideas you get when you are a child... :)

Where does the creativity of a child goes? How do we do to keep it?

Bread


This is a video, with music by CharlieIsSoCoolLike and the animation by Ed Stockham. They are both around 20 years old and are supper talented, you should check out their YouTube channels. It is amazing how when young people are passionate about something they can make unbelievable stuff.
Good lord i feel old speaking like that! They are older then me!
The thing is i've been looking for a passion for quite a while now and i dream of being able to do stuff like that.
Maybe i will try to do a little animation or stop-motion during the winter break if i have the time :)
Anyways enjoy the song it is absurd but that's why we like it!

Montréal - Plateau Mont-Royal


My Favorite place in Montreal :)

They also have a website: http://www.tourisme-montreal.org/blog/
Go check it out, it's worth it. And come visit us, you will not regret it :)

Terre de nos aieux!

Did i ever mention how much i love Canada ? 
It often makes me sad when i  hear how little the world know about this bioutifull country.
We don't even have a nice stereotype!
A guy in a red shirt that cuts wood? La police montee (police on horses)?
Not even close!

I believe it is time for a little cultural exploring!

It is cold in Canada, i agree but we have about 3-4 months of winter. It means we have seasons! Fall is awfully pretty, the color range from yellow to dark purple. Spring makes everyone so happy! I believe in florida people do not appreciate their weather. The moment there is a little sun, EVERYONE goes outside.
Those few times it rains and the rain freezes on the bare trees and makes everything look like glass are simply magical. It is orgasm for the eyes!

We Canadians are very polite. Even maybe too much. If you bump into me on the street, I will automatically say sorry. Why should i be sorry? I did not do anything wrong. But i will say sorry. Sometimes cars at intersections will get stuck waiving their hands:
-"You go first" 
-"No, YOU go first".
 We sure need trafic lights.

We are multicultural. It may be because of this abondance of cultures that we do not have a defined stereotype, identity.
 -"Where are you from?"
- "I am Canadian"
-"No, really, where are you from?"
Saying you are Canadian in Canada often makes people laugh. Like every country, we have our problems with the immigrants but I think we are doing pretty well. My closest friends are French, Chinese, Bulgarian, Russian, Indian, Egyptian...You name it!

AND WE ARE NOT LIKE AMERICA. 

John Stewart's rally to restore sanity? No need, we are already sane for the most part :)


Did I mention I love MONTREAL even more? But one blog post will not be enough.
