September Song (Comp. Kurt Weill; Perf. Bernie Blue: Sopr. Sax)

September Song (Comp. Kurt Weill; Perf. Bernie Blue: Sopr. Sax)It was a late August Sunday afternoon when I was out for a nature hike in High Park and along the waterfront with the family and friends. Growing up I was exposed to a wide variety of music.  You see, my crib was in the study/family room and that's where the record player was.  So my father would play classical music, big band and jazz.  For example he would run around with the kids in a frenzy dancing to Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqg3l3r_DRI Shortly thereafter, my brother would bring in his Led [more]

Stand Up Guys: Funky Soundtrack Is Out of Gum

Stand Up Guys:  Funky Soundtrack Is Out of Gum Stand Up Guys (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1389096/) is a movie about aging gangsters centering around Val's (Al Pacino) release from prison after the accidental killing of a crime bosses son. In it, they use the 'battle cry' before committing a crime: One: "So what will it be?  Chew gum or kick ass?" Another: "I'm all out of gum." Both the soundtrack and the film, despite critics panning it, were both out of gum. (Video: Spoiler Alert) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTD0aiLhepI   The main genre of the film is 'funk' [more]

Here is the process.  You go to their website and order a kit.  Here is what a kit looks like: For those interested in having their genes tested (in general or for MTHFR): https://www.23andme.com/en-ca/ [more]

Dear Microsoft: $0 is too much for Windows 10

Dear Microsoft:  $0 is too much for Windows 10   Dear Microsoft, I can at last once again type using my laptop keyboard. You see, your upgrade to windows 10, which you pop up as a 'suggested' upgrade, forced my laptop (L770D Toshiba Satellite) to think that it’s ‘fn’ key was constantly down when it wasn’t. So when I went to type my password it took me ½ hour to figure out what was wrong. I used the virtual keyboard. I logged in and it only took ½ hour. Then my movies wouldn’t play because you never got the whole codec issue sorted out before, why would you now? [more]

Windows 10 Misses Basic Feature: Ability to Type (Fn-Function Key Broken AGAIN)

Windows 10 Misses Basic Feature:  Ability to Type (Fn-Function Key Broken AGAIN)Out of morbid curiousity, I decided to install Windows 10 to see if the operating system to end all operating systems would even boot.  It did, to my surprise, boot.  It even showed some pretty pictures.  After trying to log on for 15 minutes using what I knew was my correct password, I had to use the virtual keyboard to log on.  I got in. Windows 10, just like windows 8 and 7 before it reversed the fn(laptop function) key on my laptop so that I can't even press the 'space' key without pressing function as well.  Also, you can't type the [more]

Proof Religion is Stupid: Tourists Blamed for Earthquake in Malaysia

Proof Religion is Stupid:  Tourists Blamed for Earthquake in Malaysia http://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/climbers-rescued-as-deadly-earthquake-rocks-malaysia/52295/ I came across this strange article while checking my daily weather.  Evidently a group of tourists posted nude atop a Malaysian mountain (Mount Kinabalu).  According to Malaysian superstition, this is a defaming act which led to the earthquake a whole week later.  (Evidently God has a backlog of plagues to unleash). This same form of nonsense occurred (all through history and recently) when hurricane Katrina befell the United [more]

  1. Hi Martin

    Can you do an update on phase 3 trial of DCA ? Seems like the web has dried up about advances with this drug.
