99.3 "The Fox"


Either way, I think Vancouver just got a whole lot cooler.

First, where was this chart when I needed it? Second, I'm happy to finally know the wavelength of the main Death Star laser.

When I was little, I was all about my NES. Aside from the obvious choices of Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt, I remember spending a lot of time playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out and Elevator Action. Then there was a game that I thought was called Mothership where you flew around in a spaceship and blew...

I want to do this. I'm impressed that a couple of you were able to attach signs to your cats. I think trying it with mine would probably result in the loss of an eye.

Second: This made me realize I spend way, way too much of my life in front of a computer. I'd definitely put this up on my wall.

Oh, and octopuses. Their ability to squeeze through tiny openings freaks me out. That freaks you out? I think that's the coolest thing ever. I want that. I know it's weird. I saw a video about them at Science World once and I was just so repulsed by it, and I don't really know why, maybe I just hav...

I finally dragged myself out of the house to see this yesterday, and it was probably the best time I've ever had going out to see a movie. Planet Terror was really fun, but words cannot express my love for Death Proof. I can't remember the last time I was so satisfied by the way a movie ended. I wis...

People tell me my fear of spiders is irrational, but I disagree. I mean, have you seen spiders? Those things are disgusting. Though, now I can deal with spiders less than about 1.5cm in diameter, which is an improvement. When I was a kid I used to be really scared of aliens. I think it's because I w...

I'm all for Finland. They make good vodka, some tasty licorice, and some shockingly delicious chocolate. Though, I'm a little biased since my mother is from there. On a semi-related note: I remember when I was in fourth grade we had to talk about our ancestry, and I got into an argument with a boy w...

I've spent the past two years working toward a degree in Film Studies, but if all goes well in September I'll be switching to either Physics or Astronomy.

I don't know what I was thinking. Film Studies? Honestly.

Other than that, I never really got into anime. Unless you count Sailor Moon, and the one summer I spent watchi...

When I was a little younger, I got my ears pierced nine times (five on the left, four on the right). I took them all out when I turned 18 though and haven't worn any since. As for tattoos, I'm not planning on one of those anytime soon. I'm just too indecisive for that sort of thing. I think they wor...

I'd say 300 has been more than a little over-hyped. I wasn't exactly disappointed by it, but my mind wasn't blow either. It was good fun, and it had some great (and by great, I mean "really freaking cool") moments, but I don't think it was a "great" movie. As for Heroes, I'm sort...
