Time Off

Last week I said I wasn’t going to be posting anything for about half of last week. So what was I doing instead? Uh….I’ll be honest, I slept. A lot. Like I would come home from work, go straight to bed and then sleep until I went to work the next day. It was something like 14 hours of sleep a day. Is that excessive? Oh yeah, but let me tell you it was just splendid. I guess sleeping isn’t the only thing I did though, by Saturday I had adequately caught up on my sleep, so I went and…

Kero Kero Bonito

I’m gonna be honest. I forgot about posting today. I don’t really have anything. So I’ll just recommend you check out this artist, Kero Kero Bonito. Particularly the album Bonito Generation. A friend of mine recommended it to me and it’s just a joyous “boppy” listen. Great for driving. But yeah that’s it, check it out.

The Luigi Queen

I’ve got a tradition of writing blog posts for those close to me when they die to get married. They’re usually filled with dumb jokes that one right there that compare marriage to death. It’s a dumb bit to stick to but its kind of my thing so I stick with it. This blog post won’t be different from those that came before it, but it is a little bit different. You see I’m writing this post to acknowledge the death marriage of my youngest sibling, Erin. She has the honour of being the first of my siblings that gets…

Rampaging Through the Isle of Dogs at Chappaquiddick

Alright, last week I said I wanted to move back to individual reviews and then on Tuesdays having just a brief write-up. Well turns out finals are busy so I just stuck with something I had already done. Later.

368

Casey Neistat. Vlogger extraordinaire, boosted board fanboy, CNN dropout and the perennial golden boy of YouTube has started a new series on his channel this past week and I have to say I’m really intrigued by it. It’s called 368, (hence my title) and it’s in some sense an extension of his vlogging content with the exception that rather than focusing on his own life, 368 is supposed to be centered around an office space. Specifically Casey’s own office space. The goal is to over the course of a 500 episode series develop the area into a hub of creativity…

Rotten Tomatoes

I have conflicting feelings about Rotten Tomatoes. I know for a lot of people it’s a really useful tool to help them decide what movies to go see, but there is a slight problem with it. The Tomatometer. The Tomatometer is the number that pops up on sites like Fandango, and it’s the number that movies use in their marketing campaigns now. It determines if a movie is “fresh” or “rotten”.  The way that Rotten Tomatoes calculates this number is kind of deceiving though. You see in order for a movie to be considered fresh it has to have received…

Tilters

Everyone has these little things that just annoy them to no end. There really isn’t a good reason to get that upset about them, but we do. Our pet peeves just really dig into us and push our buttons. Here are some of the things that put me on tilt. Women: Nah I’m just playing, we all know its white people that actually get me on tilt. Specifically French Canadians. Scatter Arrow: This is the stupidest thing in all of Overwatch, and this is a game filled to the brim with things that are stupid. For those unaware, Scatter Arrow…
