I’ve tried Linux because I wanted to get imaginary nerd points. You know… ‘cuz all the cool kids are doing it. I used to think that Linux was cool because (A) it’s not mainstream and (B) if it’s hardcore it must be better. Well, having tried Linux, I can tell you it’s not mainstream for a reason. It’s a waste of time. For everyday use, Linux still doesn’t have the… Continue reading
The end of September is the beginning many things to many people: The hockey season will be starting soon, it’s the beginning of classy movie season, and the beginning of a new TV season. Each of those interest me, of course. I love the Leafs, I love classy movies, and I watch TV. But, beyond all of those there was one end-of-September event that stood head and shoulders above the… Continue reading
#349: The jealous girlfriend/boyfriend
Super powers and jealousy are bound to be an incredibly toxic combination. Any superhero with mind reading powers, invisibility, shapeshifting, or X-Ray vision are likely to creep their significant others. If a superpower couple are having relationship issues, one of them will likely abuse their powers to spy on their significant other. And they might just find out stuff that will destroy their relationship. Maybe there… Continue reading
This week marks the start of an intermittent series I’ll be doing on potential Oscar nominee films that I have seen. We all know that there are certain things that make a movie fit the criteria of the Oscars. The Dark Knight was easily the best movie of 2008, and it wasn’t even nominated for best picture. That being said, there is something fun about the horse racing and betting… Continue reading
Taxi drivers have a reputation for bad driving. There’s even a Sega Dreamcast game about it (Crazy Taxi). But taxi drivers have nothing on tow truck drivers, who drive like maniacs to get to a crash first.
I live in Toronto and apparently this is how you run a red light:
- Turn right.
- Do a U-turn.
- Turn right again.
- It’s faster if you just
My FanExpo suite of posts has finally come to an end. But, with that comes the difficult task of actually having to think of something new to write about. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I’ve got any one thing that I can extensively grumble about. So, I’ll start off with my biggest one and then I’ll work my way to lesser grumbles.
The New Doctor: As I have mentioned… Continue reading

I have one final post for Fan Expo 2013 and it’s my traditional “what I ended up buying” piece. This year, I didn’t go quite as hog wild as I have in the past. Perhaps it was ‘cause I was wrapped up in the Stan Lee of it all, or maybe I’m just running out of stuff to buy. Or, maybe the deals just aren’t as good. My understanding from… Continue reading
Like Graham, I also had a brush with greatness. The Caramilk bar has a new wrapper. And it is resealable.
The wrapper works and is easy to open. Weak sticky glue holds it together so it’s easy to stick the wrapper back together. The new wrapper makes a lot of sense. Review over… Continue reading
