Toronto Rocks No More

For those interested, here is a pic of my new temporary cell phone, which I must make due with until the magical replacement Treo arrives.

Now, this is not exactly a Daily Perv Link quality story, but it seems that 3.3 million years ago, the ancestors of gorillas gave pubic lice to the ancestors of humans. Hmmm, you thinkin’ what I’m thinkin’? First, we have evidence of chimps and humans having interbred. Now comes suggestions of human ancestors getting it on with the larger ape cousins. Seems we humans have a natural inclination towards jungle fever.

On a completely different topic…. As you all know, I’ve enjoyed my trips to India immensely, and even blogged about my last one quite thoroughly. But even I never experienced this: a man in first class waking up to find that the flight attendants had placed a corpse next to him! And British Airways won’t even refund his ticket! Aieeee. Hope the extra leg room was worth it.

In comments to yesterday’s post, Mischa alerted me to the death of Toronto stalwart John Majhor. For those of you not in the know, Majhor hosted the single most important music video show in Canadian history, back in a time when videos were rare and video shows were even rarer. Toronto Rocks essentially became MuchMusic, and was the one show we all rushed home after school to watch… even though they played the same 5 videos over and over.

Majhor’s MySpace page is still up, weirdly. Makes we wonder: if I croak unexpectedly, how long will Deonandan.com be up before “my estate” gets around to taking her down? One’s virtual self does indeed outlast the flesh.

R.I.P. John Majhor, and thanks for the memories.
