Looks like The Hek has been sidelined with a fever and sore throat.


I really hate being sick. I do not have time to be sick.

Today, I went to see The Passion of The Christ.

It was not the best movie I have seen but, it certainly ranks up there. It is a very moving and powerful film. If I were to compare it to another film, I would say that it is the same as Saving Private Ryan , in the sense of both film's brutal reality and their ability to make the viewer feel the main character's pain.

As a person of Jewish faith, I was interested to see how the Jews would be portrayed in the film. I was worried that the film unknowingly might have had an anti-Semitic stance in it. Fortunately this was not the case. The theme of this film is to love your fellow humans despite the little differences (ie: creed, culture, religion) and to forgive those who mistreat you.

On a side note, the dialogue of the film was spoken in Aramaic. I don't know a lot about this particular language but I detected some Hebrew and Latin in it.

Well to conclude, The Hek absolutely recommends this movie. I will admit, It does have some gory parts so, make sure you don't eat a heavy meal.

It's a funny world we live in. In 2002, the World Wildlife Fund and the World Wresting Federation went to court to see who owned the rights to the term "WWF." In the end the judge awarded the rights to the Wildlife fund. This forced Vince McMahon to change the name of his company to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The decision ended a battle that lasted for ten years.

Now, less then two years after the wildlife fund's victory, they sale the rights to the term "WWF" after fighting for it for ten years. And you will not believe who they sale it too. Click here to see.

I wonder if they will ever bring back the Facts of Life. Now there was a catchy theme.

So a friend has told me that I am perfecting a Sam Roberts look. Seems like cool look if you ask me. For those who know The Hek, I pose this question: What do you think?

Wow I can't believe reading week is over. What an amazing week!

On a side note, Tim has made a good point. It was probably not Question Period but just a review of a bill. But still, 10 out of 301?

If you are ever in Ottawa, The Hek strongly recommends that you take a tour of the Parliament Buildings. Today, a very special visitor and I decided to go on a tour and we had a great time. We went to the observation tower just below the clock on the centre tower and the scenery was breathtaking. We also went through two security checks. After the tour we we're allowed to go to the House of Commons public gallery and watch the Federal Government in action.

Which leads me to this point...

Ain't the Government great? Out of the 301 Members of Parliament that are suppose to be sitting in the House of Commons there were only about 7 MP's that were actually sitting today. Even the Speaker of The House skipped out on Friday's Question Period (the back up speaker took his place). That's politics for you.

Man, I thought I hit the golden prize. I finally found an MP3 of John Cena's Basic Thuganomics. I played it five times and then when I tried for a sixth, a creepy women told me I could not play it anymore. She scared the crap out me! Well at least I have the lyrics.



So , You think you're untouchable ?

Word Life
This is Basic Thuganomics
This is ba-Basic Thuganomics

Word Life
I'm untouchable but I'm forcin' you to feel me

Word Life
This is bas-Basic thuga-thuga-Thuganomics

Word Life
I'm untouchable but I'm forcin' you to feel me

Whether fighting or spitting
My discipline is unforgiving
Got you backing up in the defensive position
An asskicking anthem
Heavyweight or bantam
Holding camps for ransom
The microphone phantom
Teams hit the floor , it's the new tight joint
Like a broken needle kid , Yon missing the point
We dominate your conference with offense that's no nonsense
My theme song hits
Get your reinforcements
We strike quick with hard kicks
Ducking ice picks , Bare-knuckle men through fight pits , beat you lifeless
You'll never survive this
You forgot like all timers
Two face rappers walk away with four shiners
The war rhymer
Turning legends to old timers
My incisors like a viper biting through your one-liners
New Deadman Inc
And we about to make you famous
Taking over Earth and still kicking in Uranus

Word Life
This is Basic Thuganomics
This is ba-Basic Thuganomics

Word Life
I'm untouchable but I'm forcin' you to feel me

Word Life
This is bas-Basic thuga-thuga-Thuganomics

Word Life
I'm untouchable but I'm forcin' you to feel me

You ain't advanced enough to process
Potential for medical concepts
Some objects are foreign like blot tests
Arts and sex are complex
Regardless of your finesse or your fitness
It's the condition of business
Your lame vision of an under-ground
Physical image , You're underneath to undermine
Your whole typical image With the precision of percentages
And the collision of sentences
Poetry beats your mic's were untouchable like righteous sluts with no
crevasses , Streets unite
we rock Tighter with dumber beats
You catscouldn't come this hot in the summer heat
But get two takes kill your birds the first time
You better stay worthy of my filler or worse rhymes
I'm better than nice
Check , the veterans twice
While you're beside yourself with fear
I'M kill you and bury you twice
Despite the cover of night
Tracking your flight like guerrilla warfare
Where the grass is dense
Approaching me is a quick way to get referred
to in the past tense
Dead-da , when the lights the mic is on
the crowd is dead like intermission When you're on the Titan-Tron

Here is another hilarious link.

How I Feel

The Hek
Another crazy week has come to an end. Let the reading week begin!

So, Farley Flex did call my show and the interview was awesome. Apparently, he has heard that I have a face for radio. ZING! I actually sang for Farley and he told me that my voice was not bad. All in all, it was one of the best interviews that Noel and I have ever done. I was planning to go to the Idol auditions but that plan unfortunately fell through. I'm a bit glad I did not go. I was going to interview contestants for the show which means I interview them and then go to the station and edit the interviews. This would just add to the list of things that I need to do and quite frankly, that is list overfilled. I'm also very tired.

I have not had a lot of sleep this week. This is due to my Russian term paper which I handed in two hours ago. So today, the mission is just to relax.

Here is something really funny that Tim sent to me: Consumer Monster's Buy Nothing Day

Until next time....

You gotta love the rollercoaster that is life.

It all started on Saturday when I went to Montreal with my Aunt Jackie, Uncle Jack and Cousin Kaila to attend my Cousin Aubrey's engagement party. I had a wonderful time! The best part of the trip was getting to see so many relatives that I had not seen in four years. For me, it is rare to see family. That's mainly because we all live in different cities and are not close together. Therefore, when one of these occasions do occur, it is certainly a special time.

There was a stand with photos of Aubrey and his fiancee Gabby from when they were little. Believe or not, Aubrey actually had a Knight Rider shirt. Just imagine a child walking around with David Hasselhoff on his t-shirt. Aubrey and Gabby are a great couple and I know they are going to be very happy together.

On a side note, I tried Budweiser for the first time and believe The Hek when he tells you that it is not the king of beers.

When I arrived back in Ottawa on Sunday I was planning to write a quick 200 word brief on the Carleton University Ravens Nordic Ski Team's performance at the Ontario University athletics (OUA) Championships. Basically it was suppose to be a simple little easy article and would only take me an hour to do. But at 9:00pm, to my horror, I discover that THE F**KING MEN'S AND WOMEN'S NORDIC SKI TEAM BOTH WON THE PROVINCIAL TITLE! This was huge news and it meant that my easy 200 word brief turned into a 500 word article. All I wanted was something small this weekend because I was away and didn't want to worry about writing any big articles for the Charlatan. However, as the song goes, "You can't always get what you want." I completed the article at 11:00am today and submitted it to very grateful sports editor (his name is Mark but it's not the same Mark that some readers might think it is).

So how was your weekend, Dear Reader?

I am starting to have dreams when I take powernaps in the afternoon. That worries me a bit. For the past three days, I have eaten stir fry for lunch. The Hek has got to cut down on that.

Isn't it amazing how the week goes by so quickly. Before you know it, it will be April!

Here is my recent article from The Charlatan.

I guess I'm in a 'random thoughts' kind of mood.

Looks like luck was on the side of The Hek.

It all started with the radio show that went perfect and then it was off to my Russian history class. On Monday, my prof told the class that he needed to go to Ithaca, New York, and was planning to come back Tuesday night. However, if there was a snowstorm that night, he would stay there and class would be cancelled. Sure enough that's what happened. This gave me extra time for my assignment which is due tomorrow.

From there I decided to skip my English Lit class so I could have more time to work on it. I don't usually skip my classes but when it comes to marks, you can't waste your time.

With that in mind, I only went to the lecture part of my film class. Besides I had already seen the film.

Total up this borrowed time and you've got a complete assignment......sort of. I still need to work out some kinks but at least I won't have to worry about anything done last minute.

Now I just hope I get a good mark out of it.

Yikes! What a crazy day. I haven't had anytime to relax.

Anyway I'm getting ready for my show tomorrow. Noel and I are going to be talking to a representative from the Sock and Buskin Theatre Company about getting some funding from Carleton. I'm also going to praise Noel for his correct prediction to the Super Bowl. Lucky Bastard. Tune in if you can: Wednesday 7-8am EST CKCU 93.1 FM.

I was getting a lift back to Carleton from my uncle who took Highway 417. We drove past a sign that said "Amber Alert. Please tune into local radio stations." This of course means that a child has been kidnapped.

This is what happened.

What is our world coming to?

I close my eyes and I'm taken away to a place where there is no sin and no corruption and no murder and no crime and no hate. One day, my Eden will be a reality. One day...
