Toronto Raptor's World Championship Parade w/ swearing
I'm so glad I didn't go to downtown Toronto to try and watch the parade. So many fucking people (some are say basically Toronto shut down for the day) that people have to try (yes I say try because there are many people) and walk on the road to get wherever they want to get to.
It was / is so busy that Nathan-Phillip Square was full by 6:30am.
It was / is so busy that you can connect to cell towers but not do anything (too many people).

Tons of companies are raising more and more money, one day the investors will come back asking for their money.
I decided to write a blog post on it (https://gregoryhammond.ca/blog/the-investors-coming-back).
What are your thoughts on companies that keep raising money?
To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!
Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:
Control Your Platform.
Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.
They all go away. Every one of them.
Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.
Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.
That you're celebrating 90 years since your first motion picture debut means you're well past your public domain bedtime you fucking rat.
But because your handlers can't stand the thought of giving you up to the rest of the world means we'll probably have to suffer another 90 years without anything going into the public domain, least of all the stuff that you stole from it.
Fuck you, Mickey. Fuck you.

Thinking about switching to #Ubuntu (from Win7) on my main computer. Anyone have any tips, tricks or apps (that I should install)? This isn't going to happen right away but at one point I want to get away from Windows.
@kev It's funny that you are de-googling your life yet you still use google fonts on your site.
