Ford might be the perfect reality television star: The Globe and Mail‘s Ann Hui reports that Pilgrim Studios, the company responsible for The Ultimate Fighter, American Chopper, Dirty Jobs, Amazing America with Sarah Palin, and a bunch of other shows you watched for hours while too hungover to change the channel from Discovery, recently approached half-mayor Ford’s representatives while the mayor was visiting L.A. to attend the Oscars and appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
This was the company’s pitch:
“I’m writing because I’m interested in speaking with you and Mayor Ford about the possibility of developing an unscripted television project together,” an executive of the studio wrote to the mayor’s spokesman at the time, Amin Massoudi, in an e-mail obtained by The Globe.
It is unclear if a meeting between Ford’s representatives and Pilgrim studios ever took place, let alone whether a show is in the works. Rob Ford and his brother, perpetual sidekick, and fellow city councillor Doug Ford have indicated an interest in a reality show.

untitledFormer President George W. Bush is displaying his portraits of world leaders in the first exhibit of his work as an artist.
The portraits include everyone from Prime Minister Stephen Harper to a grim-looking Russian President Vladimir Putin to a smiling likeness of the late Czech playwright and President Vaclav Havel.
A spokesman for Harper said the prime minister was always on friendly terms with Bush.
“President Bush has said these portraits were painted in the spirit of friendship, and that he chose to paint leaders he admired. That’s a kind gesture from a President that Prime Minister Harper respected and with whom he has enjoyed a good personal and professional relationship,” a spokesman said in an email.
SPEAKING OF THE UNITED STATES: It’s been dubbed the “guns everywhere” bill, and once it’s signed into law it will make Georgia the latest state to allow firearms to be carried in churches, bars, airports and classrooms.
untitledThe bill, passed with bipartisan support in the legislature, is jam-packed with changes to the state’s gun laws, a sweeping and comprehensive piece of legislation that loosens gun control rather than tightens it. The pending law is awaiting Gov. Nathan Deal’s expected signature.

Here are some of the key changes in the omnibus bill:
It will no longer be illegal to bring a firearm to a place of worship, as long as the congregation says it’s allowed. If someone is caught with a firearm in a church that bans guns there will be a $100 fine.
School districts will be allowed to decide if staff can carry firearms in elementary and high schools. Firearms still won’t be legal on college campuses but the penalty for licence holders is dropped to $100.
Licensed carriers will be able to bring firearms into bars unless the owner disallows it. Someone who doesn’t co-operate with a no-gun rule could be charged with trespassing on private property.
No more bans on firearms in public housing.
Firearms can be carried in non-secure areas of airports. A person with a gun caught in a secure area will simply be asked to leave, without risk of arrest, jail or a fine.
Police won’t be able to stop people to ask to see a carry permit.
No database allowed of concealed carry permit holders.
The National Rifle Association, which lobbied hard for Georgia legislators to pass the measures, called the successful vote “a historic day” for gun owners. “Your gun rights were not only preserved this year, but were restored and advanced further than they ever have in the history of the Peach State,” it told NRA members on its website.

An motorist wearing a “Drunk As Shit” t-shirt was arrested Sunday night on a DUI charge.

1. Ross McMakin, a 21-year-old Corvalis resident, was collared after he drove his vehicle on the sidewalk, struck a parked car, and then assaulted his girlfriend when she tried to seize the car keys.
mcmakinAccording to cops, McMakin, seen in the adjacent mug shot, was behind the wheel because his girlfriend did not know how to drive a stick shift.
2. Mighty Taco, a Buffalo-based chain of Mexican fast-foot restaurants, has banned Russian President Vladimir Putin from all of the company’s 23 locations in western New York
3. Investigators said an ongoing dispute over a man escalated late Wednesday, when a woman in her 20s, her mother and a pack of eight or nine other women went to the victim’s house with a baseball bat and a box containing an unknown number of white rats. (Anything we could say after this would be anti-climatic! -Ed.)
One of the biggest urban archaeological digs Canada has ever seen has uncovered a lowly part of history. “We are talking about 700-year-old latrines.

And yes, they still smell bad,” an archaeologist explains.

And in case you were wondering, the poop was in “excellent condition,” reports a member of the Perspective Research Department, with an employee of the site explaining that its “putrid odor” hadn’t diminished over the centuries.

WELL, FINALLY: Justin Bieber had to go home to Stratford to get a dose of REALITY, folks!
imagesGKR5ROI4Justin Bieber was recently labeled as “little prick” and a “disappointment” by an irate father, who said that he spotted the singer behaving awfully in a Canadian store recently. Mike Malcho who has claimed that he knows the teen icon since he was “knee high to a grasshopper,” recently posted a rant on singer’s Facebook page after he ran into the 20-year-old musician at a Walmart in Stratford, Ontario, reported. He claimed that Bieber was walking through the store like he owned the place. Malcho said that he confronted Bieber and his “30 goons” inside the store and told Bieber that he started and came from nothing, and even though he may be rich, he would end up with nothing if he didn’t smarten up. He told Bieber to grow up as life is too short and that he was a much better person then he was portraying to be.

brett-rossi-porn-star-10-600x450A few weeks back I posted about Charlie Sheen being two months behind on Denise Richard‘s child support because he just decided to stop paying it. Well, now he’s three months behind, and it turns out the reason why is because his porn star fiancee Brett Rossi is in charge of his finances now because it’s always a good idea to let someone who thinks directly disobeying ignoring a court order is smart money-management. I bet she uses Quicken. Radar reports:

As Radar has revealed, the driving force behind Sheen’s decision to withhold child support is because his porn star fiancĂ©e laid down the gauntlet and ordered him to cut his expenses.
A source said: “Brett has taken control of Charlie’s finances and she thinks he wastes huge amounts of money. She successfully persuaded Charlie to withhold Denise’s child support… Charlie felt he was justified because Denise hasn’t allowed him to see their daughters, Sam and Lola.”
As for how something like this could happen …………….., it’s simple she blows him!
WELL, WELL, TALK ABOUT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK: In a thinly veiled criticism of the breakaway Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant organization, Ayman al-Zawahri called the killing of Abu Khaled al-Suri an act of “sedition” that should be handled in accordance with Islamic law.
“All Muslims should not help anybody who blows up the headquarters of the holy fighters, or who sends them car bombs and human bombs,” he said in a recorded message posted on militant websites late Friday, referring to the Islamic State’s tactic of attacking rival rebels with bombings.

Folks, ya can’t change these people, and they will never give up their crazy ideas or religious fervour, so the only sensible solution is to just kill ‘em as ya find ‘em.
No trial, no courts, no lawyers, no appeals, just shoot them as soon as they are captured ……………………, and that makes one less fanatic ya have to worry about!!!!!!

They had an article about the “Top Ten Places to Get Away From it All” in Toronto: One of them was Rouge Park, which I am sort of familiar with since i grew up in Rosebank, which is on the Pickering side of the T.O. border!

3523Rouge Park
While there are plenty of ravines and green spaces to enjoy in (relatively) central areas of Toronto, the jaunt to the eastern edge of the city and Rouge Park is well worth it should have more time to explore and less desire to see obvious signs of civilization. While the Rouge River Valley is only about 20km from downtown, the river still follows its original course to its floodplain (unlike say the Don), which gives the area a topographical diversity you tend not to witness closer to the core. The park is also huge, so there’s plenty of area to explore should you have the time.
That’s right kids, Rosebank is situated between the Rouge River and Petticoat Creek, a community of 150 families right out in the country at that time, but still only twenty minutes from downtown Toronto!
BY THE WAY: when I was growing up in Rosebank there was a hotel on the corner of Liverpool Rd. and Hwy #2 Called “The Old Liverpool House.”
It’s a modern restaurant now, but back then it was still the original building that was a stage coach stop for the Toronto to Montreal stage.
I remember an old lady sitting on the porch in the summers, and she once told us how she still remembered the stage coach going by and dropping off and picking up passengers from Frenchman’s Bay ….., who were either going into Toronto, or East towards Kingston and Montreal!
This was all in the late 50′s and early 60′s …………………., way before the “Pickering Town Center,” but we did have the Bay Ridges Drive-in and the T.P. Drive-In on that location.
(I still remember my whole family going to see “South Pacific” at the T.P Drive-in when I was only ten years old!)
