Endings and beginnings.

Endings and beginnings.
When you sit down and do the thing where you try and summarize your year in the Internet Wilderness, it becomes painfully obvious that all of that ’embrace the inevitability of change’ stuff is as clichéd as it is correct. Life consists of a cavalcade of curveballs that you fight off desperately, trying to get ...

Thank you. 2

Thank you.
I’d normally start writing a new entry by making some smartass comment about not really having an excuse, and admonishing myself to write more, but to be quite honest I haven’t exactly been in the mood to write another breezy piece about how great the Parkdale Farmer’s Market is (though it is great, check that ...

Diamond Rings. 2

Directly from the Diamond Rings website: Although he learned piano, guitar, and saxophone at a young age, John O (as his friends call him) was more into playing dress-up with his cousin Lisa while dreaming of a life beyond the Toronto suburbs where he was born. Of course, being the only kid on the block ...

The last men's club.*
I’m a gamer. I’ve been one my entire life; hell, before I finally badgered my parents into getting me the classic grey-and-black Nintendo Entertainment System, I used to play Intellivison at my babysitter’s house (portmanteaus/weird dial controller 4 LIFE). I love card games, board games, sports – I love it all. As a kid who routinely felt ...

Telling the truth. 8

I know this is awkward and I feel ashamed having to do this en masse, but I need to be honest with myself and with everyone about what I need in my life and it is probably better to do this in front of everyone and just get it out of the way. There’s a ...

Star Wars vs. Star Trek argument – finally decided by Liam Neeson and Patrick Stewart. 2

Okay, by their action figures, but still. Wait for 1:46 for the rare but beautiful Double Picard Facepalm. There is literally nothing better in this world than this video.

Oh, Sister(s). 4

Oh, Sister(s).
It has been an amazingly busy (and great) summer. As the cold, iron grip of another busy season at my work continues to tighten ’round my throat, I wanted to stop and write about one of the best moments of the summer for me. My cousin Missy got married on September 10th to her girlfriend ...

Oh, dear, sweet summertime – you make me fail at blogging.

Oh, dear, sweet summertime - you make me fail at blogging.
Hi blog! Remember me? Big ups to Rhett Soveran for absolutely nailing the fact that blogging during the summer is made of poison. Work is finally slowing down after a totally crazy spring, and it’s been nice to take some time off and visit some really pretty country and celebrate Nesi and I’s first year ...

Oh god, blogfail

Oh god, blogfail
Driving through the Okanagan, I saw the WordPress app on my phone and remembered I had a blog. Sorry, dear reader! And by “reader”, I obviously mean my Mom. Thanks Mom!

I, for one, welcome our new Fembot overlords.

I’ve been listening to the new Britney Spears album at a clip that is completely embarrassing.  Sometime on the bus ride home last night I was struck by how every pop starlet can be summarized by their relationship to the words “fuck” and “awesome”. What, do I mean? See below. Is this an April fools ...
