Colony of Losers- Fuck Stigma and Mental Illness, I'm like 25

Surviving your Quarter Life Crisis and becoming an adult

Fear and loathing at the G20

Posted on | November 7, 2010 | 1 Comment

Alex Hundert was arrested June 26h, 2010. By June 27th, over 900 Canadians had been arrested with him.  He has been in and out of jail ever since.  As part of his bail conditions he has been denied the right to speak at demonstrations and even discuss politics. He is a Canadian citizen yet he is being denied his right to free speech.  Colony of Losers tends to stay away from politics and stick to the eccentricities of Michael Kimber and his friends.  Unfortunately due to what free speech means to asshole writers like Michael Kimber, we are unfortunately going to have to jump into the game of fear, loathing and politics.  Tomorrow a series called “Surrounded” will begin. As the G20 leaders sit down to talk in Seoul, Canadians are left wondering why a billion dollars was spent and why are trust in our government has been put in such doubt. “Surrounded” will take us back to that last week in June, 2010 when police arrested nearly a thousand Canadian citizens, detained them and denied them their most basic civil liberties.

I don’t know Alex but I do know his brother Jonah Hundert.

And soon you will too.

    I’ve been following this case on CathiefromCanada’s blog. I’ve been fuming over it from the start. The way the police have been handling this – or rather – the way the police have created this mess, makes me ashamed of my country.

  • About

    Michael Kimber is a 26-year-old journalist who suffered a nervous breakdown on November 3rd, 2009. On March 28th, 2010 when he recovered from mental illness, he began writing a blog called Colony-of-losers. About falling on your face to figure out who you are and the hilarious antics of a blond jew. What began with a few friends and his mother reading has become a cult phenomenon, averaging 10,000 views a week, receiving praise from Commonwealth Award Winner Shandi Mitchell and many others. On, November 3rd, 2010, the one year anniversary of his mental breakdown he signed with Anne McDermid and Associates, the largest literary agency in Canada. In a year he went from wearing pajamas, making his couch depression HQ to leaving his hometown for the Toronto, where he exclusively wears business suits and the armor of ancient Greeks. Don't worry, he's still choking on the feet he contently sticks in his mouth and making moments awkward just by being part of them. During these struggles he met other talented bastards and drew them into his circle. Peter Diamond became his illustrator. Patrick Campbell his video editor and part time photographer. He recently added the incredibly talented John Packman as Colony of Losers Toronto photographer. Without the support of the Colony of Losers, Michael Kimber would be nothing. Welcome to the losers and the success that comes from utter and complete failure. You aren’t alone. Follow him on If you’d like to hire him for a public speaking engagement for mental health events in Toronto, like to arrange an interview, offer millions to publish his book or for another reason contact Michael please email him. And join his facebook Colony of Losers.

    Really obvious disclaimer:
    I’m not a trained psychologist. Just a fellow traveler. If you need help seek it from the professionals. The Canadian Mental Health Association provides a help locator. You can find crisis resources provided by the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention. If you are in the states check here. It will give you services by zip code. I’d also recommend checking out I think they do great work and have been a help to me personally.
