The Texas teenager who used an “affluenza” defence in a fatal drunken-driving wreck has been ordered to spend nearly two years in jail. State District Judge Wayne Salvant said Wednesday that Ethan Couch must spend 180 days in jail for each of the four people he killed in 2013 when he rammed a pickup truck…

Hello Perry here I found this through a Facebook story today and found it to be quite true.
Here is a clever Article about Cons/Scifi/Fandom I found interesting. as working as a volunteer at many cons there really is not any prep by some off the panel hosts so read this article by Rachel Caine on her Blog Ink and Bone.
ps. I hope Ms/Mrs/Mis Caine is not upset that I am forwarding Her article if so send me a note.
So this year at C4Winnipeg We once again as a Family did our version of going to DisneyLand . Only we had just as much fun at a way lower budget. Being that I have been a volunteer at this event for several year , this was my first year as a PART TIME/ Volunteer and a Part Time Super Freeking Geek. thus the name thebackyardgeeks.com . Over the years of being a Volunteer I have been privy to Meeting a lot of Celebrities . Let me be perfectly clear ( not to quote a so called Leader) but having talked with the Actor’s and Actress’ over the years, I have meet them on a normal level.
I will never give out the contents of our conversations as they were in either the Green Room or during a moment of when they just wanted to be themselves’. Like I have said to many of them ( Celebrities ) I do not envy their Fame. yes I would like to be a Actor but all the lack of privacy they go through is not worth it sometimes.
Reading some of the ” Stars” tweets and seeing what they have to put out there for our gain and little hit of Adrenaline/Endorphin rush we get is not worth their lack of being Normal some of them wish for. I always ask myself when I see a Celebrity in or at a restaurant/store do they want to be disturbed for a Photo op that only you will remember?.
Now don’t get me wrong a lot of my friends are trying to get to the level of Fame that 90% of even “D” list people are at . But why is not anamininity not worth the Sanity( wisdom and Prudence ) of being real, A teacher is proud that their students recognize them in public that means that they”The Teacher ” is having a meaning full impact on said Students life.
Then this morning i read a post from AP Fuchs regarding how he was in awe of meeting all his Peer’s / Celebrities. just know this first hand is really funny, There are a few stories of how the Famous also get giddy when they meet their Idols. Myself i have witnessed this several times while relaxing in the VIP lounge and having been misconstrued as a Artist many times is quite funny to me, but to see a Famous person get all and to Quote” Nerdy/Starstruck ” is just incredible.
So this year 2015 we the family gathered to pose with Sylvester McCoy of Dr Who and the Hobbit series . He was pleasant and kind both with the little time in the autograph session and the photo op, But alas He was just as nice in person in the Green room.
The same goes for Actress Gates McFadden she was also very charming and pleasant. and down to earth with the way she was around us the support staff, It was like she was a Family member , whe would not let us do iour job because she was more then willing to do it herself like she didn’t want to Impose on us. Hmmm this was different and nice. also I saw this in other members of the Star Trek Cast
So without further boring rants here are this years Photo ops one o which will become our new background photo I hope!
Well at the C4con.com in Winnipeg last weekend my Daughter or this site’s co-writer/bloger was sitting at the Cre8ive table and helping out or in my words gettin a lost of lessons and learning a lot about art. The Shop Owners or partners in art Val and Shawn and Cindy were all very helpful in leaning my Kid towards being a open a free artist. She has grown n the past few years in her ability to interact with other in a very strange and open environment. Marly has grown in her art, she has been given the chance to see what the other artist have to deal with and to have strange people fondle and criticize her work. All in all Marly has handled this well, She is totally enthused to do another show.
Marly got so excited that she went out and purchased her own . industrial/commercial printer. So next year when C4Winnipeg or any other NPO ask’s her to submit work she will be prepared. Plus she can print and send her commisions thru the mail with out us going to the Printers (who shall not be named) .
In just 11 days and 21 hour from now this http://www.c4winnipeg.com/ is going to happen Will you be there?
My self I will be looking forward to meeting 3 Doctors and to get all three in Autographs

That was then =>
<= This is now.
So it has been a while since I have posted or even given a poor rant, But Alas we are into another Election run here in Canada. I can make meme’s and post pictures against the “MAN” until I’Am blue in the face but if people do not Vote then they should not complain .
The right to complain and have a say in your future is not in the hands of the local MP it is in your hands, If you do not pester and ask you Member what are you doing for ME ?. Then you will get these flyer in the junk mail folder and in the Real postal community Box by the compliment of the MAN, Truly. Every time I go to a political protest I ‘am amazed at how the Citizens of Canada complain all be it politely against the government , The only thing that comes to my mind is the image in Animal House where Kevin Bacon is being spanked and saying “Thank You Sir may I have Another” . This is Us/We/Canada.
The theme for this Election Campaign in Canada should be Lets see who can dangle the biggest Carrot . The PC party gave you some invisible money and forgot to mention that your tax’s will have to be paid on it later. The Liberals are throwing a Veiled curtain of we can be the Lessor Evil, Now as for the NDP party it looks like their campaign Theme is Who’s the Greater Evil.
Wow if history has taught us anything and I know we have not learnt a damn thing , Us mindless Canadian Spawn can be bought off with 3 Beers and a gratuitous Boob Shot-(Six Pac Abs) for the Ladies . then eights months later after the first session of Parliament sits we find out that the Hangover was Self induced and we say with a hearty toilet filled with regret. Thank You Sir May I Have Another. I have another rant reay for later but must save it for closer to the decision day, After all the Pc’s will tell us two weeks before the vote ISIS is attacking , our Money is Strong , Your Million Dollar home is worth 1Million but actually only 200grand . But we will give you Credits for the balance.
Only if your a Member of “My Party” sorry “Our Progressive Conservative Party ”
ps I know my writing skills suck but hey I’am trying
This should be read by all the people that are Complaining about how and how-come ?. For building a con/Convention for Gaming and Toys, and of course Comic Books the staple of all Con’s.
It is not about how many guest/celebrities we can fit in the building it is about how much interaction you have with the surrounding environment. 75 percent of the children do not know how expensive it is for their parents to buy them autographs and pose for Photo’s with their Icon/Hero . but amazingly the Celebrities do know and that’s why they give a little extra time and Effort with the Fans at Mid Shows like Central Canada Comic Con .
Go to this site and read a blog from a ordinary person like myself. His name is Oscar Bernie
