It's Sad I Was Right.

Back in 2013 I posted about seeing a piece of fanart for the DC Comics character Starfire on Deviantart.  I thought the artist made her look African American, and speculated what might happen if someone like BeyoncĂ© was cast in the role.  5 years later a live action TV version of Teen Titans is on the way, with Anna Diop cast as Starfire.  The result?  A bunch of racist dumbasses complaining Starfire isn't black.  Well, yeah, but she's an alien.  So if you're going to go in that direction no Earth woman should be playing her period.  Which would make it damn difficult to have a live action Starfire at all.

Gas In Saskatoon, July 27, 2018.

Prices are a bit confusing at the moment.  Some places at the 124.6 cents a litre mark.  Others are at 124.3.  And at least one is selling at 124 cents a litre.  I'm guessing things will probably stabilise at 124.3 cents a litre late today.

Gas In Saskatoon, July 20, 2018.

Another trickle down this week.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 125 cents a litre at most locations.  And again we have a price that doesn't match previous practice, missing the typical X tenths of a cent.

Gas In Saskatoon, July 13, 2018.

We had some price relief this week.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 126.4 cents a litre at most locations.  But at one point it was at 127.1 cents a litre.  I've never seen gas sold at a .1 cent a litre division before in this market.

Instagram Is Dangerous.

I decided to look for a few things on Instagram.  The result?  Too damn much time spent running various tag searches through their search engine.  Even some pretty specific ones popped up several hundred results.  More general ones can pop up tens of thousands.  And when you look at the tags on the photos you find even more interesting tags to look at. 

(No, I won't tell you what I was looking for.  It wasn't anything horrible or explicit.  Just things that I'm keeping to myself.)

It's 11:45 PM, and according to our thermometers it's 28 degrees Celsius at the moment.  That's over 80 degrees for any American visitors.  That's not a temperature you normally expect here this late at night even in summer.  So if you've got some cool weather to spare tonight send it our way.

Gas In Saskatoon, July 6, 2018.

It's not a good week for Saskatoon drivers.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 131.9 cents a litre at most stations.  It will be interesting to see if we get near the buck fifty a litre mark before the end of this year.

Happy Canada Day!

Hopefully you'll have a good Canada Day.  Saskatoon residents will probably be a bit disappointed at the moment, as it's raining.
