No 'Slutware' for Spring 2005?

Yahoo! News - 'Slutwear' Is So Last Year on New York Runways

A good quote, "The slut is out now", or "slutware doesn't play in the boardroom and it doesn't play in the office"

Wreck Beach Whiners

The amount of complaining from the Wreck beach hippies about the residence towers being built by UBC is starting to piss me off. Their main argument seems to me to be that the towers will ruin the all natural skyline from the beach. The latest Georgia Straight has an article on Wreck beach with the following caption under the headline picture, "With the city's skyline out of sight, Wreck evokes the land as it was before Europeans arrived." Sure, that is if you can ignore the tugs pulling huge piles of woodchips and log booms out of the Fraser river or any of the other abundant and obvious signs of modern inhabitation.

One of the controversial towers is already up and I couldn't see it from my sunbathing position at the high-tide line. I don't think that particular tower is the one that will be closest to the beach, but I can't imagine that whatever does end up poking over the treetops will be nearly as ugly or intrusive as the power boats that pull up to the beach in the summer or the helijet passing over head.
