Usury is the enemy of the aristocrat.
This guy is irritating but he got one right
Some observations from Toronto this weekend:
-why is it that it's the worst Yanx who like to visit Canada? So many of the vehicles with US plates that you see in Canada are plastered with COEXIST, rainbow-type stickers.
-on that note, at the zoo I observed a faglord mom & dad whose toddler was wearing a rainbow "love is love" t-shirt. Child abuse ragefuel!.
-I don't get out in public all that often as I am introverted and live in a small town where I prefer being in the woods with family, etc. But at the zoo in Toronto I observed that most women, even the ones with young children, are fit and trim. I really don't know where this idea comes from that the "average" woman is fat. I tried to figure out if there was selection bias occurring but I just can't see how; one would think that the zoo appeals to everyone.
-the CN tower is a pretty rad piece of Canadian engineering. Worth a visit!
From the Maiden concert:
-awesome as usual. It was the same setlist as last year (same tour!), but still amazing.
-Bruce made a remark about the Mayan civilization and how it just "disappeared", and no one really knows why. He then went on to say, "And you look around what's going on in the world and you think the same couldn't happen to Western Civilisation...?"
-unfortunately he also made some remark, at the end, that was a paean to "diversity", by way of introducing the closing number, "Blood Brothers". I was a little disappointed by this boilerplate rambling, but who knows what he really meant by it.
Visiting Canada is a weird pilgrimage that our urbanites take to show off their level of virtue signaling. To them, experiencing "Canadian Culture" is going to Toronto and eating at one of the same dozen fancy restaurants that everyone else does.
The outdoors focused folks who go there don't even go to the cities. I used to go to Canada often and some of my family members still do, absolutely none of us have ever even driven through the bigger cities.
Lifestyle goal of mine is to own a vacation cabin on a fishing lake in absolute nowheresville Canada.
They're a boomer band, you really can't expect anything but cucking from them.
Some of the midsized cities up there are still shockingly white, prosperous, and attractive. Places like Kingston Ontario are kind of humiliating for a thoughtful American to visit! Our comparable cities in Upstate New York are horrible, dystopian dumps. Syracuse, Utica, Schenectady, all are mini-Detroits.
Of course, it won't last much longer without a dramatic change up there.
Bruce is cucked, hard pill to swallow
I have never thought of it this way before, but it makes sense. Disturbing sense. Canada as a pilgrimage destination?!?
I strongly endorse Kingston over Toronto for the Canadian culture experience.
What are your thoughts on the Nunavut area? I think of vacationing there every summer, but this year hasn't been too bad so far.
Seconded. It's the kind of area that used to make me wonder what our friends across the border are talking about when they describe upstate New York as a meth-infested hole.
This isn't even intended as a slam against Toronto, it's just that Toronto is so immigrant-driven at this point that it's just frankly true that it doesn't represent authentic Canadiana.
I haven't been personally, but I know an outdoorsy types who got posted up there to help train the rangers. They seem to be loving it.
I was about to say that hardly anyone has ever been there, which is actually not false, but then realized that it is something of a destination for people who want to venture to the ends of the earth, and I do actually know a few people who've been there. What can I say? If you want to experience the barren, empty tundra (and who doesn't?), be my guest! It's expensive to get there, though.
My dream is a week-long canoe trip in the NWT.
Yeah, it's a jagged black pill for sure. He's so intelligent, so well-read, and well-thought-out, and such a fan of history and the Empire, that it's hard to believe he isn't a secret shitlord. (I never, ever understand people who are history fans who aren't reactionaries!)
I would like to think that his remark was a not a sell-out as much as a genuine sentiment of the brotherhood of man, in the best sense of that idea.
So, perfect place to escape the Mid-Atlantic heat and humidity?
He used to sing for a band called Samson. Of course things changed when he cut his hair.
