Comfort Food

When life is hard, I have a habit of wanting to go back to a simpler time, when things were easy. When smiles, laughter, contentment didn’t have to be worked for and nothing was in the way of just enjoying life. The thing that allows me to do that, in the most economical way, is…read more

Simple Premise, Hard to Explain

I have been staring at a blank page for about half an hour trying to figure out how to write about the show High Maintenance. It is not an easy show to convey even though it has a pretty simple premise. IMDB put it most succinctly: A comedy that explores the private lives of unique New…read more

Bird Course

Friends From College is a show with a simple premise; you follow the shenanigans of a group of 6 close friends that have known each other since college and the people around them that interact with this friendship. The second season of the show came out early this year to little/no fanfare (none that I saw anyways)……read more

What have I learned

I first heard about the Netflix show Sex Education simply because Gillian Anderson was in it and my friends thought I should know because of my “obsession” with The X-Files. I read a synopsis of the show which sounded a little silly, kinda run of the mill, but there was definitely a possibility of fun……read more

Are Diamonds Forever?

Do you want to know why most men believe they need to spend 2-3 months salary on an engagement ring and why some women still believe they should hold their would-be husbands to that standard? Well, you can blame De Beers. Before the late 1930’s relatively few people bought diamond engagement rings. People… …more

Cracks in the Glass

Last weekend I went out to the theatre to see a movie. It had been a month and a half since I’d had the pleasure of fold down chairs, loud chewers, and the smell of stale popcorn. My friend and I showed up without having decided what we were going to see as it was……read more

What’s going on

Over the last, almost, year and a half, life seems to have run away from me. Not because I was doing so much but really because I could do so little. I have gone through some things in the last while that have made it difficult for me to create and articulate. But in recent times I……read more

Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant in finding out what my… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and brushing a… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim Burton, they… …more

Bad Spellers of the World Untie! I don’t get it.

When I first saw this printed on a t-shirt I was with a couple of my friends and they burst into laughter. I sat there and giggled a bit but that was just a front to hide my confusion. For a long time I didn’t get it. What can I say? I am a… …more

Too Much To Handle?

Alright this mornings rant is about these people who drive huge vehicles like vans, SUV’s and even municipal trucks, who believe that these vehicles can’t handle doing more than 3 kilometers per hour over a little bump in the road. It’s really very, VERY annoying. Perhaps this vehicle is too much for you and you……read more


Are you bitches ready for Hammer Pants? Because they are on the way and “y’all better recognize” as they say or I say or…never mind. Seriously though, they are coming and have made appearance everywhere. First, earlier this year during New York Fashion Week in a couple of shows and then they surreptitiously splashed again……read more


I always believed the raven, although majestic in its blackened beauty was normally a solitary bird so it shocked me to see a flock of thousands upon opening the door. I must have given them a fright as well for all at once they took flight making early morning an artificial blue/black night. The sound……read more

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is a funny movie. It’s not hilarious and not a bore it is an average comedy. The laughs are pretty evenly spaced with ok performances by everyone involved. Simon Pegg is a great comedic actor but he comes across the best in works that he has more… …more

My Two Cents.

Is it just me, or have we all been (at one point or another) stuck behind those people who feel it necessary to argue with a cashier about a few pennies? Whenever I get in a line to pay for something especially at a grocery store I get stuck behind these people. “No that cookie……read more

Droppin’ Some Education

L.A.S.E.R. For those who don’t know it is an acronym. It stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Gordon Gould was the first person to use the term LASER in the late 1950’s. The acronym roots of the word LASER have been mainly forgotten outside the scientific world due to the terms… …more

The Night Watch

As everyone will realize I am not good at reviews … Including my own writing. I just can’t talk about it intelligently. I was never really good at giving book reports not even on See Spot Run. I was all like there was this dog and he ran. I guess you could consider it an……read more

Frolic in the Park

The MP3 Experiment On September 28 I partook in something called the MP3 Experiment Toronto. It’s an event that has been organized 4 times in different cities across North America. This is not a paid event or advertised. The whole thing is word-of-mouth and free. All you have to do is go to… …more
