A grossly unrealistic depiction of how babies come to be.

Be Cool, Stay in School

I remember a time where people would say 'stay in school, or you'll end up flipping burgers for the rest of your life.'

These days are old, my friends.

I actually overheard a guy tell his kid 'Stay in school, son. Because if you don't, you'll end up making parking lot rule signs for a place that people flip burgers in for the rest of their lives for the rest of your life.'

Oh whats that? You don't think I heard a guy actually say that long winded and grammatically questionable sentence?

Prove it.

Some people call me the

Space Ink on Paper cowboy. Some call me the Gangster of Love Zorro of doors. And my name happens to actually be Maurice. Fun fact.

I hope everyone had a

'Cause our city is filled back up with bright eyed bushy tailed, planet saving university and college students, which can only mean two things.

1. Summer is over.

2.Going to bars/restaurants/museums/parks/taking public transit/waiting for a taxi etc... will be filled the sweet sounds of first any year philosophy students pontificating over the ways they believe they are 'smarter than the prof, and especially that TA maaaaaaaaaaan'.

So theres that.

the new euphemism for poop.

Allow me to explain - this dumpster is in the parking lot of some green space  my dog likes to runs around in. Its full of bagged turds and empty Tim Horton's cups.

Kind of terrible. That is of course, until one brave, nay, heroic citizen decided to beautify this otherwise bland, second hand kibble receptacle with a crudely drawn sun.

Really makes you stop and think about all the magic that surrounds us. Now, where is my phone, I'm going to the sun room to drop a wicked ray.

An Incomplete Thought

Any ideas as to how to start or end this one?

Tell me @streettreasure

Thursday, June 28, 2012

My head says stop.

But my heart says start.

And my insurance company says cha ching!



I'm sorry for that one. Please keep reading this blog.

From now on if I can't write anything worth reading, I won't write anything at all.

Thanks to my Bro AZ for this shot, I hope no one crashed their Dodge Stratus as a result.

I don't know where you found this grammatically irresponsible threat of hip-hop music, MR.

But I hope you're ok.

About time!

It's been really hot out.

Forest Treasure

No word of a lie, I lifted a stump and found 9 cans of Corona.

No lime?

I'm outta here.

Nah just kidding, I drank 'em.

Unless they were yours, then somebody else did, yeah somebody else.


I'm moving on to a new project at my work (don't worry, this will not affect my ability to hunt and post, I say this like any one other than my Mum is reading...), and my coworkers got me a cake for my send off.

In case you're wondering, DTU stands for 'Dead To Us'.

Thanks guys.

Love you.

Not quite the normal fare, I know.

In a world of foodies, hipsters and hipster foodies I can't seem to turn my head without reading someone's wordy, and quite often contradictory opinion of the local, gluten free, organic, free range, sustainable, craft brewed dish they just purchased from a converted BFI dumpster turned lunch hot spot.

And then, I read some of independent food critic Luke Gillham's work.

We all know Tums are a delicious on-the-go snack, but did you also know that recent studies have found that they may actually be a great source of calcium and can even help cure your pesky indigestion? As if you needed another reason to enjoy your favorite guilt-free snack!

In fact, the one complaint I hear when complete strangers introduce themselves to me on the street is: “Hi. I love the delicious mouthwatering taste of Tums, but how am I to decide which game changing flavor assortment to choose from?!”. Well I hear ya mass-consensus-of-the-general-population, that’s why I’ve put together my independent food review of the full range of fantastic Tums flavors.

Sublimely harmonized with Tums’ characteristic chalky crumble, the citrus zesty burst in your mouth – instantly explains to your taste buds why our forefathers only required one word to describe both color and fruit.

No need to worry about the bothersome pip inside this flavor sensation. The sweet taste of this popular addition to the assorted fruit lineup transports your mind to images of cherry stalks seductively being tied into knots with the tongue of your boy-next-door crush.

Can’t afford a tropical vacation? You won’t need one after tasting this headliner of the famous tropical fruits collection! The freshness packed inside this flavor will have you second guessing whether you’re enjoying your favorite Tums treat, or sampling a freshly picked pineapple prepared and served by your very own island monkey.

Nothing to get hung about, strawberry Tums forever. The vivid taste phenomenon is so refreshing; you’ll feel as if your entire body has been stripped naked and hauled down a metaphoric slip’n’slide bottom first with your legs in the air.

That concludes the first installment of my independent critic review, but if you’re after some fantastic serving suggestions; why not impresses your friends and colleagues at your next chic dinner party by serving an assorted platter of Tums for desert? Or if you’re feeling creative, try wrapping your favorite Tum inside two other Tums for a Tumtastic Tum sandwich!

And if like me, your kids are too stupid and fussy to eat their vegetables; he’s a little tip I use for my young ones: drop a couple of Tums into their mash potato or steam a few up with some mixed veggies – they’ll be begging you for a second helping of greens in no time!   

Stay tuned for the next impartial review of marvelous Tums flavors.

Well said*.

The talented but oft illusive RF strikes again!

Thanks for the support.


I wrote RF, I meant RV.  The following text conversation tells the tale.

RV - Dude, you write RF instead of RV on street treasure. Humph!!!

streettreasure - Hahaha in yo face!

RV - You suck!

streettreasure - I'll fix it, ya dope.

So here it is RV, I fixed it. Ya dope.
