It's time to party!!!!!


Yes folks, it is hard to believe that it has been a year since I first started this thing. In one year, The Hek has gone through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows and most of it was expressed right here. Thanks to all those who read this sucker for the last year.

Now for that nostalgic feeling, here's what the first blog looked like, November 28, 2003. Enjoy!

Wanna know why The Hek is indeed a Legend Killer? It's the fact that on the day of my 10:35am class, I can wake up at 10:20, get dress and still be on time for the class. BOOYAH!

The Hek is going solo tomorrow on the WEDNESDAY MORNING SPECIAL BLEND. We’re going to have a really cool segment called “Sounds of a Calgary Grey Cup Breakfast.” Noel and I taped this last Friday at Ottawa City Hall during the Grey Cup festivities. It’s a really great segment so tune in. I’ll also have the usual craziness.

My buddy Stephen has a new ride. He'll be going up and down the streets of Japan, crusin in his car and fellin like a star.

Unless Godzilla eats his car. That would suck. What would suck more is if Steph was in the car. However, Steph has a black belt in Kung-Fu. All he needs to do is kick and punch and the monster will get some hardcore indigestion.

My buddy Tim rocks! He took time out of his busy day in ENGLAND to give The Hek a little telephone call. Sorry I was not there, Tim.

Tim goes to Carleton but for this year, he's studying abroad. She's a brunett, HIYAOOOO! Actually, he is part of an exchange program where he spends his thrid year studying in England. The cool thing is that he keeps a blog about all his adventures in merry old England. Check it out, it is good stuff.

Nothing like handing in a paper you know is crap and then getting it back with a mark of A-.

So there I was, enjoying a nice, peaceful nap; when suddenly, the damn fire alarm goes off. I hate fire alarms with a passion; especially if I know they are going to occur. Anyway, when the building emptied, we were all told that we took too long. Apparently, we are suppose all leave the building in 15 minutes. According to the fire alarm testers we took 25 minutes to evacuate the entire building. So, we have to have another drill…fun. Trust me, if there was a real fire, we all would have been out of the building in 5minutes.

Oh, for anyone that cares: Brent Butt didn’t call the show. There was some sort of mix up. Noel and I hope to have him on the Blend in the near future.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show last night. The show went well and we had an excellent turnout. When good fortune like this occurs it gives me a sense that everything will always turn out alright. I have a lot on my plate for the upcoming weeks. There's my midterm on Wednesday, a presentation in another class, three papers due in seven days and, a newspaper article that I have been tailing for the last few weeks. It is going to be hectic and I am probably going to be stressed out. But I have a good feeling that everything will come out on the plus side.

The CKCU funding drive has come to a successful end. This year the station raised $103, 835.39 and as usual beat its annual goal of $93,100. Not sure what they're going to do with the remaining 39 cents but, they'll think of something.

In the meantime, it looks like the Raptors have got something going this year. Today, they beat Portland and are now 3-0 on the season. The Hek is not going to lie to you, that is sexy.

Also, I spent the entire day cleaning my pad. I shall celebrate this feat with a meal of tacos and alphegettis.

Chris Bosh put out an amazing performance tonight against the Pistons. Of course, when I was choosing my fantasy NBA team, I thought "Should I take Bosh?" I decided not too and look what happens. Fortunately, I did take Jalen Rose and he has done well.

Speaking about doing well, the Argos beat the Ti-Cats tonight and they move on the Eastern final against Montreal.

Okay, here is the thought of the day:

You know what sucks? When you try to download what you think is an episode of Jackass and instead turns out to be a compilation of two porn shorts and another short on fire safety.

Have a nice weekend,

First off, Wednesday Blend made a total of $145 for this years' CKCU funding drive. That is more then double from what Noel and I made last year. So, to all the people who dialed and donated, thank you!

Now on to the election:

What really bugs me about the results is that I now have to put up with another four years of anti-Bush sentiment. I can't stand that. Don't get me wrong. I oppose George Bush's polices but I also oppose this notion that he is some kind of demonic, immoral, heartless human being. There have been other politicians and world leaders who have been much worse than George W. Bush. Hitler comes to mind. So does Moussoni and Saddam. To disagree with Bush's stances on the issues is one thing. That's cool. But to make him out to be murderous insensible Texan is going to far. Of course that's just my opinion.

The CKCU Funding Drive: Now at $60,000.

We're well into our first week of the funding drive now. 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 and show your support for your favorite CKCU programs.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.

The drive ends this Sunday. Help us raise $93,100!

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. You can also donate on behalf on the show over the web.

Thanks you for your support.
