Well....the server is up (duh), and I am more or less settled into my new house. I'll have to post pictures of my new
'Flintstone' house as soon as my camera makes it out of the repair shop. But hey - everything seems to be working on the
site, although I haven't finished that new server yet...soon enough I'm sure. It's tough to think about computers
and the site with all of this nice weather we've been having!
Aaaanyhow, I wasn't expecting to put up a real update today, so I won't. Instead I am going to throw up the
official Pike Lake 2K2 video - put together by
Audiophile out of footage taken on the May long weekend. It's
a large download (45 megs) but well worth it, so check it out!
I'm off to the lake...if anyone is in the Emerald lake area this weekend make sure to stop on by....chao!

Hey everyone - it has been awhile since I've updated this page but I've been pretty busy lately...what with Pike Lake 2K2 and moving and all. Right
now I have just about everything I own packed in boxes except for my bed and my computer, so I thought I'd put up a quick warning before I shut
it down too. If you're reading this now, please be advised that all RBlords services will be shutting down tomorrow around 5:00PM - that would be
Wednesday the 29th to be exact. If all goes well everything should be back up and running again by Monday.
Pike Lake was a blast this year, I have to say we had a pretty decent turnout...even the late JayB was in
attendance...as was gay Larmal. Everybody had a good time, despite the fact that the conservation officers were really giving us a hard time for no
reason at all...but soul_d and myself are currently taking care of that :)
Hmmm what else? B.B. King was a great concert...the man is getting old (76) but his music is just as good as ever. It never ceases to amaze me
how his opening band can be so good, and then he just blows them out of the water. Heh, I guess thats why they call him a blues legend! Anyhow,
I think Audiophile and Dog Pound really enjoyed the show too.
Not much else to say, I'll update when I get everything set up again. Audiophile is preparing a video
'collage' of the events of Pike Lake 2K2 for all those who are interested. I expect to have that available to you on Monday, so hang tight!
Until then....for a good time click here!

Hello everyone... It's been a while since I made an update for good ol' Rblords and since Nigs Peterson (aka Spitfire) is busy with his affairs I shall take the spotlight and steal what attention I can until Spitfire realizes I am slowly turning his website into a multi-level marketing cash cow.
This week (May 10th) the "Blues Boy" himself will be visiting Saskatoon. Yes BB King is still touring and we are lucky to have him visit our city. I consider this a once in a lifetime opportunity as I have never had the chance to see a live blues artist, not to mention one of such talent. I know that Spitfire is quite a big fan of BB King, but I haven't had the chance to get to know his music so I am looking forward to having my first listen and I'm sure I will be pleasantly surprised.
Once again another year has passed and old man winter (although still showing his ugly face every now and then) is going home to make room for summer. And what better way to kick off a new summer than packing up your gear and going out for a helluva good time camping at Pike Lake. The tradition lives as the staff of Rblords and all of it's affiliates (and their wives, kids, mistresses, and addictions) are once again re-living the Pike Lake experience this May 17-19. Come one come all... I can't stress how fun it can be to roll around in a tent making out with the opposite sex for 3 days at the low low price of a campsite. Or maybe going for a quick dip in the refreshing lake during the middle of the night naked with a bounty of beautiful (but not illegal) young willing women. Or having the rain pour down on what you expected to be a nice warm night only to have you ending up mud wrestling with a plethora of young beauties. YOU'D HAVE TO BE CRAZY TO STAY HOME!
As of lately there seems to be a trend developing among the Rblords staff. It seems this year motorcycles are in and walking is out (leaving me to set my own trend for being 22 and still never owning a car). This all began when someone bought an old vintage motorcycle to drive for the summer. Then the next guy decides that's a good idea and buys a motorcycle until everyone ends up owning one. Then we end up forming a motorcycle gang and eventually a Mafia ring called the Christ Punchers. I can already see it happening so I advance ordered the embroidered leather jackets for our up and coming gang.
As many of you have probably read in previous updates, Spitfire just bought a lovely new home somewhere in the booneys where he can raise a wonderful family and sell cars on the side. He will now live away from all the amenities except the Sutherland bar, and of course Jet D. I don't know the exact address, but I will include a picture of what the house looks like and as of June 1st I was specifically told to invite as many people as possible for a party that ends all parties. So if you spot this house feel free to join the party at any time. Rumor has it once the party gets too big Spitfire will be moving the party into his backyard where he will supply a hottub and trampoline for the pleasure of his guests.
For the last few months I have been busy recording music for a friend who is the member of a two piece orchestra of rock. The album is scheduled to be released in its entirety by late summer, but I have a hunch that pre-mastered tracks will be kicking around to be heard very soon. The band is called Bastard Machine and Rolling Stone calls it "THE REAL FUCKING DEAL".
Although the car on the right is an old Mercedes Benz and not the classic Volvo, I can still picture Unit3 driving in on his way to the Liquor Store with Rammstein blasting out the Public Access horns he would have glued to his roof. And with tires that nice and big what would stop him from actually driving on other people's lawns, I mean lets face it.. there's less traffic on lawns. The only thing I think this car is missing (if it were under Unit3's posession) are some nice big bull horns on the hood and a cow catcher grill.
That concludes this Rblords installment, stay tuned for more exciting adventures. Have a good week and Enjoy!

Ok...only one update last month, I have to admit that is pretty lame. I'd love to post some videos for y'all but I have to resolve the issues
with web bots leeching them constantly...and I'm not sure how I'm going to fix that yet. Oh well, I'll get to it. Eventually.
At least someone is doing something with their webpage..._SPACE_ has updated
the layout of her page so go have a look!
To be honest, I just can't wait to move...at this point my house is a mess and I can't bring myself to clean it up because I know I'm just going to be
moving in 3 weeks anyhow...and Pike Lake 2K2 is going to be here in 2 weeks, yet apparently it's supposed to snow tomorrow. BAH! The new
server is pretty much ready to go, but I'm having problems with the SCSI array right now ... hopefully I'll have it fixed by the time June rolls around because
the rest of the system is freakin' sweet.
Today in an email conversation, YC, Blue4130 and I
discussed the art of 'selling out'. From this we got into a discussion about designer jeans; CK, Ralph Lauren, Versache, etc...and whether or not
people were stupid for spending $200 on a nice pair of pants. Anyhow, I have come up with a single good use for brand name jeans (once they have worn out of course),
and have posted my solution to the right.|
A couple days ago YC emailed me a link to put up on the site, and I'd better do that while I'm here so I don't forget.
Anyhow, follow this link to the sweetest 'Type R' you've ever set your eyes on!!
I also have an obligation to mention Red Bandana Online, as Barb has been tormenting me to do so. Also, she has
mentioned me so I guess its only fair! Anyhow, all I have to say is I really like the new layout of her site, it rules. I only wish someone would make me a nice looking
interface, as I'm so freaking useless! Yay, Barb!
Ha, this update is very difficult to type when my computer keeps randomly rebooting every few minutes...quite frustrating really but I have no idea how to fix it.
I hate computers, therefore it makes more sense to just buy another one than to fix this one for free...but I don't want to spend the money. So I am going to live
with this computer reseting every few minutes. In a way its kinda refreshing. Everytime it boots back up I here those wonderful windows 'chimes', and I feel
reborn! It's a very spiritual, uplifting experience really. Last night I left my computer on and the sound cranked up so that every few minutes the sound
of the windows chimes would pierce through the quiet of my house, and rejuvenate my spirit. Needless to say I slept in and was late for work
the next day. Fucking windows.

Heh...I can just imagine Blue4130 filling his pants right now (sorry for the image). Yes, on the left is none other than
80s pop star Tiffany, who incidently posed nude in playboy for the April issue. Feel free to browse through the pics by clicking on the links below the picture to the left. I think
all you guys will agree that this is the best thing since Jefferson Airplane. And since I actually have way more pictures than shown here, you can download the complete set
If you are offended by nudity, or you just don't want your girlfriend/wife/kids to see you looking at these pictures, perhaps you could amuse yourself with
this humerous picture of a male and female carrot. Hahahaha....oh man, thats hilarious!
Ahh, here's a link I've been meaning to put up for a long time! I think this guy might be using his
brain too much, but some of his experiments are pretty cool to play with. In particular, give the human head a try - its a blast. You can easily spend way too much
of your time on this page, especially if you're a geek.
And for all of you local Saskatoon dwellers might find this interesting:
a live broadcast of local police radio. I think that Razor may be running this website out of his closet...either way, its quite entertaining and completely legit. I listened to a couple
of cops talk for almost 15 minutes about their low carb diets before one of them decided to actually go help some kid that had been passed out against a Macs store the whole time. Ahhh great fun!
Anyhow...that was just way too much content...time to leave this off with a celebrity quote as always...
"I adore Beavis and Butthead. It is an extraordinary, powerful and important piece of work. It also makes me laugh like a drain."

Wow, talk about neglecting my readers! Seems this always happens in the spring...I start of summer-related things, and somehow forget about this site. Consequently,
I'm sure you are all less interested in keeping up with rblords during this peak time. Nevertheless, the ball rolls on!
I found myself a shack..and for those of you familiar with the neighborhoods of jolly ol' Saskatoon, it is located in the South-West corner of Sutherland. Thats right,
I'm moving to the train yard. Nice big house, nice big shop in the back (that's the important part) and a fair size lot to boot! I'm really impressed with the lot sizes in
Sutherland...you just don't find a 50'x145' many other places, unless you are willing to move into Montgomery. ANYHOW, possesion date is May31st so I've got
another month yet. However, I'm letting you know this because there will probably be an inevitable downtime around then. Chances are, with having to get my high-speed
link relocated, and moving in and such...the site could face up to a week of downtime. I hope you can find it within yourselves to forgive me...
Ok - enough updating for now. Catch y'all later....
Meanwhile I will sit here and think about the lake...which reminds me. PIKE LAKE 2K2 is just around the corner. Matter of a month, really. And now that I look,
I didn't even put up Pike Lake 2K1 pictures! Hmmmm...perhaps I should get right on that. Either way, PIKE LAKE 2K2 promises to be reasonably more entertaining
than a barrel of monkeys, and possibly AS entertaining as YC chugging a bottle of tequila. Sounds like we could have quite
the crew this year...and if the weather holds up....well...lets just say I hope everyone makes it home ok :)|
Beyond Pike Lake this year, I'm hoping to be spending most of my free time at the lake...either boating or just kicking it back in my hammock. This year I finally
have my full 3 weeks of hollidays to burn up, and I fully intend to get rid of all 3 weeks between June 1st and September 1st. Can you blame me? I'd like to get some
good fishin' done this year too...maybe I can catch one of nature's finest creations...the 2-headed Saskatchewan wonder-fish. Only available in the fine, clean lakes of
Saskatchewan! (see picture to the left).
Hey, time for some pictures...these all revolve around the beautiful seasons of Saskatchewan (yea thats where I live)...

Ha! I'm back! Miss me?
The snow is melting, the temperature is rising, and the bears are decending from the nearby mountains surrounding my quaint hometown in search of food. Lucky for them
the gophers are already popping out of their holes. What does this all mean? Thats right, an increase in local gas prices. And the
cycle continues...(chart below does not graph hibernation patterns or mean gopher population - but it IS related)
I believe I mentioned having some problems with the server and my internet service awhile back...seems the site has been putting out a steady 3.9GB/day for at least the past
few months. At first I thought RBlords had gained immense popularity as it lay dorment in the corner of my spare bedroom on top of the phone book I'm using for a case. However,
it seems internet search bots have been downloading every video I've ever posted on this site (about 800megs worth)...and there were about 8 of them downloading these videos at
any given time. Needless to say the videos have temporarily been taken offline until I can find away around this little problem. RBlords lives...and stronger than ever.
The pieces for the new RBlords server will be arriving shortly...in fact some of them are already here. Hopefully once put together we will have a solid running system that I will no longer
have to maintain - just shove into the corner and forget about it. Basically what I do now, except its going to work. |
I received a gas bill today for $271. Convinced that it was a mistake, I phoned the toll-free number and the explained to me that they just took a reading, and that the
last reading taken was in September. I asked them why they hadn't taken one in so long and their response was "There are 2 large dogs in the backyard". Thats funny, I haven't seen any?
Anyhow the bottom line is that I have to pay this stupid-ass bill!
(I'm not sure who makes the T-Shirt on the left - so don't ask!)
Ever think of all the wild things you got caught doing in highschool? Chances are they don't top this kid. Something tells me
this kid didn't mind taking the 3 day suspension... can't help but wonder whether or not the girl involved got a notice too :)
If you have time (and if you haven't already seen this), you MUST watch
this flash video of Romeo and Juliet done in L33T speak. The soundtrack is absolutely amazing, and the artistry...well...reminds me of something
JayB would have drawn.
I've got most to post...mostly videos though, so I'll have to get this bandwidth issue sorted out, then you'll be in for a special, special surprise! In the meantime,
I'll leave you with a wise celebrity quote to think about:
"I have always hated that damn James Bond. I'd like to kill him."

Sorry for the lack of updates everyone. but I'm sorta in the midst of a few issues right now....for one, I'm trying to piece together a
more reliable server to replace this old clunker which is literally running without a case, sitting on top of a phone book right now. I'm also
hoping to be moving within the next month or so, so service will be interrupted at that point.
Either way I'll keep you posted, but don't expect many new updates until a month or so down the road....
