Awwww....


The University of Victoria is overrun with rabbits. They first started showing up about seven years ago, and ever since then, there have been more and more every year. I took this photo with the digital camera I had borrowed from the labs for Photojournalism class:



They get tamer and tamer every year, too, since they are in constant contact with hyoomans. I was about two feet away from these little guys, and they didn't even flinch. Hell, they even let me use a flash.


Not the world's most meaty newspost, but pictures of baby rabbits are probably a refreshingly innocent break from what you've all been seeing on TV lately.

My soul will have to wait till I get back...


Well, I just completed my very last assignment for photojournalism class. I may post a few of the less embarassingly poor of the photos I took up in the gallery. But I'll leave that for a time when I'm feeling less drained. I feel like I haven't stopped to catch my breath all day.


More on Friday! You know... maybe.

And the award goes to...


As many of you have pointed out, Sam and Fuzzy was once again denied an Academy Award this year. Some speculated this was because Sam and Fuzzy is not a movie. A few others thought it might have had something to do with Fuzzy calling the Motion Picture Academy a bunch of "spineless egonmaniacal buck-toothed pornographers." Your guess is as good as mine, really.


It is really interesting to compare the "war coverage" of the big American news networks to any other source, be it online or even from other national TV news networks. Regardless of my views on the Middle East, I don't understand how anyone could be satisfied with the media circus that CNN and Fox News have become this week. I know we live in an age of corporate media ownership and "embedded reporters" and everything, but the level of bias is becoming ludicrous. I'm lucky because I can compare this sensationalist garbage to some at least marginally thoughtful analysis on CBC Newsworld. Folks, if you aren't getting a good variety of views on TV, it's definately time to hit the web. It takes at least three perspectives to make a 3D image.


Ok, that was a lousy metaphor, but you know what I mean. :)


Peace.
