Bossk, the Underdog

Today, I visited my friend, an enthusiast of Lego, at his natural habitat, the Lego Store.
I gave him a long overdue visit after his numerous requests to visit his workplace, and it was not a regrettable decision. There was a plethora of bricks and minifigure parts for one to assemble any creation he or she so desired to make, for the right price, of course.

At the front of the cash register, there was a variety of keychains on sale, generally going for $5. Ones of lesser popularity were sold at cheaper prices, including a Bossk keychain, for less than $2.

I knew Bossk to be an associate of Boba Fett, being a rival and on occasions a partner to his fellow bounty hunter.

For some strange reason, I felt pity for the fictional character that his importance in the Star Wars universe would go unnoticed, and at the end, I purchased one.

It was not a regrettable decision. Despite the fact that I have no use for a key chain other than the one attached to my wallet, it now sits on top of my desk, plotting a way to finally best his rival in crime. Overall, the experience was an interesting way to start the weekend.

It is Cold in November

This post was written in November for a school newspaper, regarding the Occupy Toronto movement. Readers will be indifferent to know that the article was completely unbiased towards either side of the movement.

Occupy Toronto is a peaceful demonstration protesting against economic inequality, based on the Occupy Wall Street movement. (Can you guess where that is?) It began in the middle of October, near Bay Street, before protesters moved to St. James Park and set up camp. Aside from minor inconveniences, the police and the rest of the world have been fairly tolerant.

So far, only two people were arrested in Toronto, one for trespassing, and the other for undisclosed reasons. In terms of protests, there was no commotion in Canada, until quite recently. Mayor Rob Ford had expressed his concerns regarding the ongoing occupation of the park, stating that “it is time that we ask them to move”, and that he was formulating a plan regarding the occupation.

Meanwhile, in Vancouver, the death of a protester has resulted in the city’s attempts to dismantle the encampment, and in London, Ontario, tents were forcibly removed by the police, returning Victoria Park to its tranquil state once more. Currently, the commotion in St. James Park seems to be dying out as well, with some protesters relocating to Queen’s Park.

The time and manner of Rob Ford’s promise is an enigma that only time will tell. Remember to dress warmly!

As promised, here is a blog post about what's happening in Libya.

Libya is an oil-rich nation in North Africa, known to many as "Libya".

It is led the a tyrannical ruler Colonel Sanders Muammar Gaddafi, and lately, there have been protests against him to stop doing what he's doing. This has gone to the point that Gaddafi had responded with police brutality, and he has lost a significant portion of the country to the rebels.

Muammar Gaddafi has gained even more infamy due to the current events that have occurred. He is known for his megalomania, and his eccentric personality, almost bordering insanity; a danger to himself and his people.

Is this twisted emperor fit to lead his people? What will be the future of the nation?
All we can do is believe;
believe for a brighter future.

Television Show Review: Fringe

Very minor spoilers: first episode or so

Fringe is a science-fiction show that started in 2008, created by J.J. Abrams, among others. This name may be familiar to those of you who were a fan of the series Lost, which ended in 2010. J.J. Abrams has created other shows and movies such as Alias, Star Trek (2009) and Cloverfield.

The show takes place in Boston, Massachusetts, following the cases of the Fringe Division, a division of the FBI dedicated to solving crimes that, as the name implies, are scientific with dubious scientific procedures.

The main character is Olivia Dunham, who, after her lover dies, joins the Fringe Division. She is assisted by Peter Bishop, a civilian consultant for the Fringe Division, and former con-man. He is also the guardian of his father, Walter Bishop. Walter Bishop is a "mad scientist" who, while being eccentric at times, is always a big help to the Fringe Division whenever there is a new case.

I feel reluctant to say a lot about this show, since it's fairly new, and it would just be awful for me to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, or is watching it right now. The show is at its 3rd season, and the plot is already very intricately woven. I will make posts per season finale, summarizing and giving my opinion about the whole season, most likely when season 3 ends.
