Last year, for the Winnipeg civic election, I helped develop Winnipeg’s premier election website: WinnipegElection.ca. We were exceptionally pleased with how that turned out, so we’re doing the same thing for the Manitoba Provincial Election. So today, I’m proud to announce our launching of ManitobaElection.ca, the most trusted source of information for the upcoming 2011 Provincial Election. Many new features are in the works, but we’re launching with what we have today to get the word out.
I’m still waiting for the riots to occur. I’m in a state of resigned shock over the results, but honestly not the least bit surprised. It turns out the homophobic carrot was the election key, all that talk of the economy and terrorism were really just dressing on the meaty issue of one’s right (or non-right in 11 states) for a person to marry a person of the same sex. Way to go America! Way to show your tolerant, empathetic self. Well, that’s enough politics on this blog for a while.

I don’t care whether you like Eminem or not, but I think that everybody can get something out of this video. Some might condemn it as materialistic – pandering to commercial gain by exploiting the mood of the world to sell a record. Others might see it as an act of satan, the devil himself reincarnated to turn the prophesized path of redemption off it’s path. Most, however, will see it for what it truely is – the amplified noise of a world awash with frustration over the value choices of the American administration and it’s figurehead.
You know, I love the guys at JibJab.com… there’s just something about poking fun at the foolishness of both sides that make’s it so funny. I’m sure most of the world has seen their first breakthrough video but, as they say, they’ve gone and done it again. Poignant accuracy and rapier wit rule the internet, it just takes the right minds to collate the data and present it in a hilarious form. Hats off to these guys for breaking the 5th wall and bringing a little of the internet into the hallowed halls of Big Media. I remember when I saw their first spoof on CNN; I thought to myself ‘”this is the first time I’ve seen a cartoon from the Internet make it onto the boob tube this is a great day” and I was shocked, but not as shocked as I will be if I don’t see JibJab on my local news at 6.
