I've been writing this blog since 2005. I have had a number of content specific blogs in the past, but decided in 2013 to consolidate them all back into PJMixer. You'll find photo projects, movie reviews, new music and general thoughts about my life.

We visited the Toronto Zoo for the first time this year. The gorilla exhibit is always rather bittersweet for me as I love seeing these beautiful animals up close, but I'm often saddened by their captivity. Last summer, the older female Samanda died and reports said that the family definitely showed their sadness and perhaps that was what was on this gorilla's mind on Friday. I think this may be Charles, the older male, but I'm not certain.
