"The Situation has changed and we've got to change with it, adapt to our new environment, Darwinism, Improvise. Whatever, man, we have to roll with it."

I might be paraphrasing but I just don't give a shit. When you are a Legend Killer, you don't have to.

Meanwhile, CKCU still needs your help. See the website for more details.

CKCU Funding Drive Update: $30,000

Wednesday Blend Total so far: $45

Do the math, it equals to 0.15%. But there is 10 days left to go.

Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox. They ended that 86-year-old drought and finally brought a World Championship to their fair city. Not only that, but they silenced the best offense in baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Annual Funding Drive from Friday, October 22nd to Sunday, November 7th:

The Drive Has Arrived! CKCU calls on you to help support community radio in Ottawa. Real radio that supports independent music - local, Canadian and worldwide!. A voice for the community - and an outlet and training facility for anyone interested in radio. Run mainly by 200+ volunteers, CKCU has been part of Ottawa's airwaves 29 years-as well as being available online worldwide. This is your chance to help keep this community service available. Some facts about CKCU:

• CKCU relies on donations from listeners for nearly one third of its annual budget.
• CKCU is a Registered Charity funded by donors like you, the students of Carleton University and by Program Sponsorships.Tax receipts are issued.
• CKCU runs on a bare-bones budget. With a devoted, overworked and underpaid staff of only four people - along with two hundred volunteers - we are able to produce first-class radio at a cost of approximately $40 per hour.

There are many ways you can donate. You can check them out at CKCU's website. Every year, the hosts and DJ's compete to see which show can get the most donations. If there's a particular show you would like to help out, say The Wednesday Morning Special Blend, all you have to do is donate while that show is on the air (in this case, Wednesday 7-8am EST). The phone number to dial and donate is 613-520-2528.

Thanks for your support

Last night I went on a haunted walk in downtown Ottawa. The stories were cool and creative but it did not scare me......until I went to bed, and lay on my bed in my dark room. Suddenly, things that shouldn't make noise, made noise. I was a little boy again; head under the covers, drenched in sweat. To be honest, the stories have made me a bit on the edge.

Okay, time to get down to business: World Series. Now Game one was a slugfest. But despite that, it's going to be a closely contended match up. So The Hek is predicting that the Red Sox will beat the Cardinals in seven games.

It's starting to get down to the nitty gritty here at Carleton. The Hek has got 3 midterms and one paper in the next four weeks. My first midterm will be just multiple choice, fill in the blanks, short answer and matching columns. Thank God.

I also saw Team America last night with my friend, Owen. Basically, if you like South Park, you will enjoy this movie. It makes a political statement in a vulgar way. "America: Fuck Yeah!"

Here is my recent article from the Charlatan.

Boston is awesome!

The Boston Red Sox: American League Champions.

Maybe the biggest sports story of the decade.

And best of all, they beat the Yankees.

Tomorrow on the WEDNESDAY MORNING SPECIAL BLEND, Noel and I will talking about all the crazy things this world has to offer. We will also be joined (if we can get it) by a very cool and special guest. Who is it you ask? Well, you are just going have to tune in to find out.

Ah, the brilliance of the University Residence Cafeteria.

So, the caf at school decided they wanted to fix their dishwasher. When do they decide to fix it? This weekend which means that everybody has to use paper plates, cups and untencils. They decide it would be better to fix the dishwasher this weekend instead of last weekend when most the residence students were at home for Thanksgiving. Now everybody has to use the paper cuttlery. Bet you anything they run out by Saturday evening.

So I have been watching the ALCS and NLCS and I cannot believe how many former Blue Jays are playing and have a chance to win a World Series title.

Roger Clemens (Astros)
Pete Munro (Astros)
Woody Williams (Cardinals)
Jeff Kent (Astros)
John Olerud (Yankees)
Mike Mattheny (Cardinals)
Miguel Cairo (Yankees)
Tanyon Sturtz (Yankees)
Chris Carpenter (Cardinals)
Paul Quantrill (Yankees)
Mike Timlin (Red Sox)

That's as much as I can think of, I might be missing a couple of other players. But still, that is just a pure case of irony.

Once again The Hek would like to restate that he despises the New York Yankees with a passion.

Here is The Hek's latest Charlatan article.

Well, it was a great Thanksgiving long weekend! The Hek has returned safe and sound and is ready to tackle the daily grind of school once more.

This week on the WEDNESDAY MORNING SPECIAL BLEND, Noel and I will discuss all the wackiness that is human life. For example, Detroit Red Wings Defensemen Chris Chelious' quest to be the next member of the United States Bobsled Team.

Tune in, Wednesday 7-8am EST on CKCU 93.1 FM.

It is amazing how the weather can control how I feel.

Today in Ottawa it rained and poured in the afternoon and was completely dark and dreary. It made me quite miserable. And then, the rain clears and its sunny by 6:00pm and my mood changes to a more upbeat content feeling. The weather is one crazy kid.

So yesterday the first debate of the presidential election was held.

The Hek did not watch it, nor do I care too. The way I see it, it's the lesser of two evils. Bush sucks and Kerry is a dull, boring, uninspiring man.

In any case, here is some presidential humor: This Land
