I've been remiss

Sorry my Pottahawk brethren, I seem to have let the week slip away without so much as a peep to the blessed day that is Pottahawk 2009.

I could blame it on any of a number of factors:

a) I'm distraught over the death of Ed McMahon
b) I'm distraught over the death of Farah Fawcett
c) I'm distraught over the death of Michael Jackson

However the truth is, the week just got away from me, that is all.

Tune in tomorrow and I'll try to have some juice.

Great moments in Pottahawk history #4

The first wedding ever to happen at Pottahawk was in 1901, or as the Old-timers called it 19 aught 1.

Graham Handcock and Edna Spunkmyre tied the knot on the shores of Pottahawk that fateful day in July. The infamous Handcock-Spunkmyre union lasted only 41 minutes when Mr. Handcock's new bride ran away with the photographer who took the photo Dr. Colonel "Tex" Obenhymen.

In between taking wedding photos, Obenhymen doubled as a traveling side show salesman selling homemade elixirs. Maybe you've heard of Dr. Bull Horn's Magic Tonic?

It was the turn of the century's answer to Viagra and penis enlargement.

The two set off in a row boat from Pottahawk Point and were never heard from again. Assumed drowned in the high waves, it is said their ghosts still wander the point and can be seen in the reflection of the waters...that is until they turn piss yellow and brown.

Great moments in Pottahawk history #3

Tragedy befalls the 1924 Pottahawk Piss-up festivities after the entire Hamilton Swim Club foolishly decide to try swimming the distance to Pottahawk......from Hamilton.

They drowned in the Welland Canal.

Also the weight of the beer they were carrying didn't help their buoyancy. It was noted the men were all very intoxicated.

The tearful mother of deceased captain Skip Peabody was quoted as saying, "At least my son died with a smile on his face doing what he loved best- serving his teammates."

Amazing yard sale finds

Whew! It was a good weekend haul at the yard sales. I got some cool stuff. Check it out.

Pickin`On Creed: Cost $0.75

Used to be you had to pay a buck or two for a Creed album. Now you can get it for a song, (no pun intended), but bluegrass versions of Creed songs.....that is a rare find my friends.

Squirrel- stuffed and mounted: Cost $2.50

I`ll admit it was a little pricey, but with Father`s Day looming, I couldn`t afford not to.

Dead Pet: Cost $1.75

Sure I could get the same thing for free by the roadside as long as a have a shovel, but this one doesn`t smell. Boy, Dad is really going to love me on Sunday.

Amazing yard sale find of Amazing Spiderman costume: Cost $3.25

Originally the dude wanted $10.00 bucks for this sweet pick-up, but I was able to get him down because of the pit stains.

Hmmm, wonder what he wore at the yard sale after I left......

Unique gifts for Father's Day

How about a custom mounted squirrel After all, didn't you just hear him say, he has a hard time mounting anything these days?

Here's a great site that will keep Dad busy for a while. Guess her muff.

Or how about getting Dad a nice new or used grill? This is the grill he had in mind right?

Great moments in Pottahawk history #1

January 8th, 1997

The attempts to stage a Pottahawk Piss-Up party in the middle of winter fail miserably.

Great moments in Pottahawk history #2

But later that same day the ice-sculpture making competition is a resounding success.

I've got two words for you

This is a new feature where I take two random words put them together and see if there are any sites out there that remotely fit the description.

Sadly today's two words do.


Know your anime

We haven't been there for a while so....

Let's see what our good friends, the Japanese have been up too.

Pottahawk piss-up 2009....

By the numbers...

Disappointing really.

If you search "Pottahawk", you'll find old Strangedaze on page 4.

Add "2009" to that and I fare only slightly better moving up to page 2.

In fact, you have to add "Piss-up" before you find a first page ranking.

So I've decided to up the ante, since historically all my traffic seems to come in the window between June and August.

I will post something so shocking, so original, so exclusive to Pottahawk, that you'll have no recourse but to tune into Strangedaze on a regular bassis just to see what it is.

Numbers, numbers, numbers

Amazing yard sale finds

Last weekend I was down in the states. It gave me a chance to do some yard sale shopping south of the border. Seems the Americans are just as fucked up as we are.

Pee & Poo soft plush dolls Cost: $1.50

A little exorbitant I'll admit, but when am I ever going to have the chance to buy plush Pee & Poo dolls again?

Miniature babies Cost: Free

I was afraid to ask, but it was a throw in with the Pee and Poo purchase, so who am I to argue....

The Green Days of Christmas Cost : $2.50

A Christmas album of Green Day songs? Hook a brother up. Except now I have to try and find a turn table on my next yard sale foray.

Pottahawk 2009 warm up

Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Once there was a time when this blog ranked right up at the top of Pottahawk searches.

Now, everyone and their mother are posting pics and vids of the blessed day.

Yet, I have faith I can rebuild my sullied reputation. Starting with this Pottahawk 2009 pre-post of T-shirts we'd like to see at this year's event.

Let's take a moment to thank...

Only a matter of time

So it's June 1st and summer is on it's way. Although, it doesn't feel much like it some days. But it got me to thinking that Pottahawk is just around the corner.

Ah Pottahawk- the greatest day of the year: better than Christmas; better than a day off with pay; better than finding twenty bucks you forgot about in that sweater pocket; better than the ritualistic sex every Friday...on the last week of the month...before the winter solstice...on a leap year.

Yes-sir-ee....Pottahawk has been very,very good to me, not just in a, fun-drunk-I can see your vagina-way, either. Pottahawk means lots of hits for Strangedaze as people search for debauchery of one sort or another. And I aim to please in that category. With the lack of traffic in the past months as the recession even hits mt Blog, it will we a welcomed change.

This year I hope to be no different as all your favorite blogs should be back from: Where's Boo and Johnny Wad, to Pottahawk T-Shirts, to This Day in the History of Pottahawk.

And let us not forget the pics and vids.

So start cracking open those beers my friends, there is much training to do before the blessed day is upon us.
