Some of the most memorable things I remember from my basic is the colorful and creative language and sayings from the instructors.

- you people move like old people f*ck
- drop your cocks put on your socks

I still remember htis old officer, what a great guy. Old school infantry but an amazing sense of humor. Was doing a inspection and he came across this realllyyy nervous guy :

"Son, are you making kissy faces at me? Do you want to make out? I haven't had it from my wife and you're looking pretty, maybe later we can meet out back"

It was great.

Farting on an inspection also caused good times...because when it happened they made us scramble for our gas masks  :p

Actually I changed my mind, my actual favorite part is when they are learning how to turn on the march in squads.  "Squad Two" gets called about about have the recruits turn the wrong way and almost smack into each other.  It made me all nostalgic and brought back memories of teaching LACs drill.  :-[  **sigh** the good old days.

At 13:00 of the Episode 8, someone yells "Get your *** down, you're not a porn star!".  ;D

I laughed pretty hard when I heard that.

My favorite has got to be Weremko in Episode 5? i think.  Doing the obstacle course and she pulls "an ovary muscle."
;D

I hope she was joking.  But I was just unsure enough whether or not she was, that I laughed my *#s off.

Lol oh I never noticed this before.  It really cracks me up in Episode 9 when they are interviewing that recruit with the busted CLs.  The Canadian Anthem comes on and him and and camera man just kind of fall silent with the "oh whoops do we stand, or shut up, or keep talking" thing there.

Funny stuff.

Just a general question... Basic Up Episode 4, about 6:16, the PO mentions the "toilet paper" that looks like garbage, not nicely stacked and what not.
My general question is.... IS THAT THE FRIGGEN TOILET PAPER!?!?!??! (It looks like paper towels) Cause man... if it is, I'm smuggling in some nice ol Charmins.  I'm gonna be all scratched up with that!!

I, nor anyone I know, has ever had a problem with toilet paper, I'm sure it was an accident.
Good luck at BMQ, as soon as you're gone you will miss it.

I'd have to look again, but I think the toilet paper was on another shelf, the paper towels were just what was in frame at that moment.

Yeah too funny.  I think they were rehearsing for the grad parade right?

I saw a little trailer on the Canadian Army News channel on YouTube for a new season of Basic Up!

It said it's coming in 2009.  When exactly that means...who knows...hopefully not December 2009.

Looks pretty sweet.  Already seems like they show more of the training than we got to see in the last series.  Don't have the link handy but it should be their most recent upload.  There's a French one as well.

NICE. I loved the first season.

As an aside, when I initially did a search for Basic Up 2 on YouTube, my first hit was:

"Basic Make Up lesson 2"  ;D

I've been looking forward to the release of BasicUp part deux.
The first 'season' was a great recruiting tool as it gives one an inside look into CFLRS
Much better than any reality tv that's out right now...except maybe Bromance hehe..

I thought the old webbing was completely gone from the system.  Just wondering, as they seem to be wearing it in the trailer (or it could just have been shot a wile back).
