Canada Day: Not Quite Hostile

I just spent 24 hours belittling Bill Simmons and Dave Eggers in every form fathomable for pimping out tuna melts from behind a flimsy disguise. That anger and the idea of a Canada Day, our tenth together, without an update, fired up the highfalutin Forget editorial cycle:

Ten years in and Forget still burns. Ten years of a Canadian web original; couldn’t let that go by without letting the world know they’re all still just trying to catch up. We recently found these two beauties, one old, one new, digging up the broken glass of Chinese apothecaries and chasing the ghost of Ginger Goodwin down Dunsmuir Street in the Village of Cumberland, BC. Makes us remember, even ten years in and now with mouths to feed and bullshit to throw to make it so, who we are. Truth is, there’s no way to Forget. Dig it

Miguel Strother is exchanging pleasantries for truth.
