How Much Do You Really ...
Okay, hypothetical question.  Imagine you have just won $20 million.  You completely fear all of the publicity that will come with having won such a great sum of money and you also fear all of the relatives and friends who are surely going to crawl out of the woodwork.  Suddenly,... 
H1N1 vs. The Locker Roo...
It seems like all of the fuss around H1N1 has died down.  I haven’t even heard anyone make any swine flu jokes lately, which is good on one hand because quite a few people actually died from it, but on the other hand, there is a certain satisfaction that is missed in quickly... 
Chuck Klosterman, Addit...
If you are a fan of music or even pop culture in general, then hopefully you have had a chance to read some of Chuck Klosterman’s work.  From his various books to his writing in Esquire and other magazines, I can’t remember a time when I have read something he has written... 
My Top 10 CDs of 2009...
So as another year closes, one of the things I like to do is take a look back at the music that I loved over the year.  Not necessarily the best albums of the year, but the ones that I loved the most.  People sometimes find it confusing when I say this, but realistically, just because... 
Parents Helping Kids Ge...
There are a lot of reasons why child obesity is up.  You can make arguments for the fast food eating habits many parents have incorporated into their children, the nature of video games and a general sedentary lifestyle many children have adopted or even the nature of just having... 
TTC Tunnel Vision...
I’m a monthly TTC Metropass purchaser, so once again, I will see the TTC reach into my pocket again, but not in a good way.  Looks like they are going to be taking more money from me on a monthly basis because, well, it appears they are a little short on cash (and the irony... 
How to Disappear Comple...
You quite possibly recognize the title of this post as a Radiohead song…possibly one of my favourites by them.  I have read all kinds of angles on what the lyrics are actually about and that’s part of what I love about the song, that you can take it for what it means... 
Captain Dreadful...
Coming up with creative ads that are universally appreciated is difficult.  I can appreciate that sometimes you are going to hit and sometimes you are going to miss (let’s say…like how Rogers does), but the way Captain Morgan consistently misses is amazing.  The Captain... 
Prayers Should Calm Peo...
As we were about to depart Union Station today, a woman sitting across from me said a quick prayer under her breath and then made the sign of the cross, obviously a prayer for safe travels.  While this likely provided her with a calming sense and possibly even helped in getting us... 
Today I Felt Like I Was...
I have to admit, it was cheesy, but it was completely effective.  I hopped off the GO train this morning with Sondre Lerche blaring on the iPod (man, that guy does great unapologetic pop…too bad I’m missing his concert Wednesday night!) and some dude was shouting something...
