Let's kick us some darkness! Let's make it bleed!

Hi! Glad you could drop by.

I'm Brian Robinson, a long-time Canadian trade union organizer and bureaucrat (not in its negative sense, I hope!), now retired and adventuring in SE Asia.

One of my deepest disappointments at this point in my life is that, no matter that I spent most of my life trying in my small way to help make the world a better place, we're now in the midst of a deep, deep crisis, a crisis that could end all of us. The old, US-led world order is collapsing under its own weight, greed, and hyprocrisy, and a new one is arising to take its place. That is, of course, if we all don't get blown to Kingdom Come in the process, and those that survive (hopefully not me!) are condemned to live through/die from nuclear winter.

Gloom and doom aside, this web-site is my offering to younger folk, the ones that will replace us old codgers, who want, despite what may seem like overwhelming odds, to be a positive part of the new order. It's going to be a long haul, but, providing we can maintain our access to the wonderful new media that have sprung up over the last twenty years or so, it's a doable, and very worthwhile, project. Your grandkids may thank us!

Don't shoot your wad concentrating on the next election. As they say: If elections could change anything, they wouldn't let us vote. We need to build a vast, anti-war, anti-inequality, pro-people movement to replace the, let's face it, pretty pathetic parties we have representing us now. If it means replacing capitalism with something better, so be it.

I just hope it happens before we humans are extinct. I myself will be soon enough, so it looks like I may miss the worst of it.

Lots of damned good reading from alternate media in the "News readin'" section. Some you won't like much—just like I don't—but there's little point in just reading what you already agree with.

But there's some fun on this site as well as all the doom, gloom, and hope. First, I've shared hundreds of my photographs from Thailand, Laos, Viet Nam, Cambodia, and even some from Canada. You might like a few.

Also, I've shared the recipes I used to use when I wasn't such a bad cook. Some will knock your freaking socks off. Enjoy!

The photos at the top of this page are from my travels in Asia.

1,000 Apologies, I had to remove my actual e-mail address from this page. I got really tired of sock puppets offering me free sexual favours. (And NO! I don't know how many of them were Russian, and it wouldn't change my vote!) So here's one of those crappy contact forms that I really hate. Did I mention I'm sorry?
