Your MXC Monday Victoria Day Open Thread

Beerguyrob

Since this is Day 3 of the Canadian holiday weekend, and all the NFL news looks like a Very Special Episode of “Crimebeat!”, I figured I’d just go with a summation of the middle-aged Canadian’s long drinking weekend playlist.

First, the classics that appeal to the elders that may have come over,

A reminder of the childhood I’ve lost,

Next, the more 80s & 90s stuff you’d expect,

Because it’s my goddamned house, there’s none of that Drake shit. However, I’ve always got time for a little Fresh Wes.

To top off an enjoyable day, a classic to wrap up the evening.

It was a good weekend, despite the apocalypse.


Tonight’s MXC Monday is Episode 108 – Outdoorsmen vs. Educators

Even though the events are all of the MXC classics, I’ve got to say – these guys make teachers look kinda


Tonight’s … entertainment?:

yeah right

Strange dynamic but we’ve got other brother, the second, who lives in Riverside County and he’s bored and wants to visit. I know where our current household has been and I know he volunteers at a VA hospital and shit. I just can’t guarentee where HE’S been and it’s not just our household it’s everybody at work who’s livelihood depends on diligence.

I’m going to have to tell him he can’t visit.

And that sucks.

We’ll have to regroup at a later date and that’s the best we can do.
Sorry bro. Next time.

The neighbors have been having people over and they sit by their cars on folding chairs and chat and drink. It works well until I walk out of my house “Oh, hai.” Mood ruined. It’s easier on a semi cul-de-sac.

Senor has freezer rum for post-work lemonade, so hooray for me! Also I forgot how all of Community’s early S1 tags were so good, like I knew but I hadn’t corresponded them all.

Triumph’s “Magic Power” is the cheesiest and most sincere rock song ever, and Ric Emmett is a god. If Rush ever emigrates to Spain or whatever, Triumph will be my favorite Canadian thing.

1) Rush
2) Triumph
3) Shania Twain but not her music
4) Steve Nash drinking beer on an LA freeway passed to him from another car
5) Bob & Doug MacKenzie

(Riga and Lambeau would top the list but they’re clearly Swiss)

(I’ve been by the place on Piazzale Loreto where this pic was taken. At the time of the display, it was an Esso station. I can’t remember what it was when I was there 20 years ago, probably a McDonald’s or a Starbucks).

The Scarificator,

So what do you think this device was used for? Believe me it is as horrible as its name suggests.

Up until the late 19th century people believed that bad health was caused by an imbalance of the bodily humors (fluids). A healthy person had a balance between blood, bile, and phlegm. Illness was believed to result when any of these humors became imbalanced. To restore balance, physicians often would bleed the patient to drain out excess blood. For instance, when George Washington was ill with a throat infection, he was drained of 9 pints of blood over a 24 hour period. He died by the way.

The problem was that it was fairly nasty business for the patient to slowly have a vein cut open with a scalpel. To solve this problem the Scarificator was invented. Popular around the late 18th and early 19th century, the Scarificator was a metal device containing two sets of razors that were spring loaded. The device was wound up or cocked, and when triggered would spring the razors forward cutting the flesh it was situated on, usually the arm. The Scarificator was a great step forward in bloodletting technology, while painful it was much faster and more efficient than a man with a scalpel.

By the later 19 century bloodletting was relegated to quackery as modern science took over the field of medicine.

This shit is really starting to piss us off. Is there some kind of legal action we might be able to take to stop it? We’ll pay all legal fees in opium poppies.

I used to know a guy who got into a fight with Maestro Fresh-Wes’s entourage. That’s about all of the story I know, other than that (1) there was a large amount of tequila and possibly some Bolivian Marching Powder involved; and (2) it did not end well.

There’s a pretty good documentary on the Spirit of the West that I saw on Crave. Kinda takes me back to seeing them in the early 90s.
