Apparently Corey Hart Drives a Fiero and he’s a blogger, which is awesome. He seems to be blogging like it’s 1990 or something, which is rad.

New York was fun. We did lots of stuff, sold lots of Table Shox, and my Mom even gave me a haircut. Good times.
Yeah, been kinda busy with oneredpaperclip.com
You can follow along there for more info on my whereabouts and miscellaneous happenings.
I’ll post some good pictures and stuff here at kylemacd.com over the next few days.
Heading south tomorrow on good ol’ I-87 to NYC. Gonna be there till next Wednesday. Table Shox stuff.
Probably won’t be seeing any of these wonderful Canadian Cigarette packages for nearly a week!
I don’t smoke or anything, this is just a roundabout way of bringing the ridiculously-awesome Canuck smoke pack warning labels to your attention.
Ok, I’m not sure if you’re into web design or whatever, I’m not, but I’m slowly being sucked into it. This is my traffic for goingpostal3000.com, my old site. This traffic is because pretty much all of my pictures are hosted there and 25 000 people a day just started showing up to these sites instead of the usual 100 or so. Up until yesterday, I only ever went through about 10% of my max-allowable bandwidth a month.
Yesterday I went through 50% of my enite bandwidth for November.
So I signed up for a flickr pro account and now have the painstaking task of recoding everything away from the Going Postal 3000 site. I’m sure there’s an easier way to do this but flickr seems to be rad and tredy and all the mega web geeks are in there, so it’s gotta be good.
Check out my flickr site and comment and stuff if you like. I’ll post lots of really sweet pictures there now that it’s way easier to do so.
A couple of days ago, I made a post about a black cat that crossed my path and how this means good luck to me. I then made an attempt at ‘humour’ by trying to shine a positive light on all the FREE or YOU JUST WON or DEAR RESPECTABLE SIRS Nigerian email scam stuff that ends up in my, and everyone else on the planet’s, email box every day. I thought it was funny, and I had a little chuckle to myself.
Then a few big time blogs somehow got their hands on the site feed for one red paperclip, posted it, and the next thing you know my phone rings and I hear: “Hey Kyle, it’s so and so from (enter media outlet here) in (enter city here) in (enter coutry of choice here). Do you want to go on the air and tell you story about the one red paperclip to (enter number here) million listeners?
Needless to say, this was a bit better proof that the black cat was good luck than those shallow attempts at shine-the-best-light-on-those-spam-emails style humour I tried on Tuesday.
If you wanna fan the flames to help the whole ‘trade from one red paperclip up to one house’ thing actually happen, feel free to post a link to http://www.oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com at as many of these websites as you can!
In related good luck news, I always take it as a sign of good luck everytime I see a white goat. White goats are cool.
There’s this lady that lives at the outskirts of Dom’s village, St-Alexis-Des-Monts, who has this crazy stash of white goats, and everytime we go up to St-Alexis, I look to see if her white goats are out of the barn. If they aren’t, no biggie, it’s not bad luck, but if they are out – oh boy, it’s blues skies for the foreseeable future.
It’ll be cool to see if the white goats are out of the barn next time we roll into St-Alexis. I’ll keep you posted – maybe I’ll take a picture of them.
Bye for now,
My websites got about 100 unique visitors yesterday.
My websites got more than 20 000 unique visitors today.
Needless to say, this makes blogging a lot more fun. Later. Kyle.
A black cat just crossed my path on my way home. Now, the current popular superstition is that this is bad luck, but my outlook is a little different.
The first 25 years of my life were spent in the vicinity of black cats. My parents got Ebony, black cat #1 before I was born. When they brought me home from the hospital back in good old 1979, Ebony arrived at my bedroom with a present.
Ebony crossed my path daily and brought hundreds more presents to the family right up until she packed it in eight years ago. Within a matter of months though, black cat #2, Diva, came on the scene and she’s brought nothing but good luck – and presents.
So, to all of you who think black cats are bad luck, I say phooey. Black cats are good luck. That’s it. Hang on, I’ll prove it, let me go check my email…
Guess what was in my inbox!

Hey, I hope this new site “does the trick” for you.
It’s been a long time since I first thought about dropping goingpostal300.com in favor of a simpler domain name. Fun times.
I’m not sure if you’re aware, but I’m still trying to trade the Honda EX 1000 generator I got last month. The generator is awesome. 1000 Watts of fun. I’ll be in Montreal until Thursday night then it’s down to New York for five days or so. I’d really like to trade this generator this week. I just haven’t had the time to put it to proper use, like for hosting a rager out on an acreage. That needs to change. I thought about using the generator to power my computer while I’m in construction mode around here, just to get in the spirit of things, but it turns out Dom doesn’t like gas fumes, so that option’s out.
Anyhow, pass word around, somebody’s gotta know a cool cat down in NYC who needs a 1000 Watt generator. Tell ’em they can read all about how I got my grubby paws on it at oneredpaperclip.com Bye for now, Kyle.
Finally got around to making some big changes to my internet presence. Over the next little bit, goingpostal3000.com will become kylemacd.com and I’ll create independent sites for one red paperclip and Message in a Barrel. The site might be down over the next few days, so don’t fret, just a little old fashioned website maintenance going on.
Here’s temporary drafts of the new websites (these are superhack right now, but will get better and better)
Let me know what you think needs to go on these sites. The domain names will be:
(goingpostal3000.com will be buried deep in the earth, I pretty much just used it cause it was the first name that came to mind, don’t ask why.)
I really want to get independent RSS feeds going for all these sites. Rumour has it that syndication is sweeping the nation, and I want to get swept up in the fun.
In related sweeping news, a bunch of us, including Dom, me, Matt and Fanny went curling last night. It was awesome.
Yes, this is a head or tails MACHINE. Leave it to the curlers to blow minds. Leave it to the curlers.
