I’ll keep this short as I still have to finish packing, but I’m about to embark on probably one of the craziest vacations I’ve ever been on. The locales aren’t exciting, exotic, or european, but the fact that I’ve decided to go to a music festival and a convention almost back to back is probably unhealthy … More Osheaga and RTX Part 1: The Calm Before the Storm
Going into Marvel’s latest film, to say I was skeptical was putting it mildly. While you shouldn’t let rumours or publicity ruin a film, what I was hearing about Ant-Man prior to its release was not very reassuring. The departure of Edgar Wright, rumours about a constantly changing script, a lack of success with test audiences, it … More Ant-Man Review: A Mountain Out of an Ant Hill
I hope that I don’t have to do posts like this too often, but with the way this month has gone it might be one of many. These past couple weeks, especially this last one, have been incredibly busy for me and as result I haven’t been able to write as much as I’d like. … More Blog Update: I’m Not Dead Yet
When I was in high school, I was really interested in digital photography. While nowadays everyone just takes pictures with their cellphones, my Dad got me a digital camera before they became more common place. This was while I was in middle school, and my first digital camera was a point-and-shoot. It an Olympus Camedia … More Getting Back Into Digital Photography
It was after coming home from a concert that I found out about the passing of Satoru Iwata, President and CEO of Nintendo. I’d been riding a sort of emotional high after attending the show and felt like the evening had gone well. After logging on to twitter and seeing the outpouring of support for … More Thank You Mr. Iwata
This is probably the most “bloggy” post I’ve ever written. Can we make “bloggy” an actual word? Who do I call at the oxford english dictionary. Anyway, I think it’s only just started to hit me how packed the next month for me is. From now to August 14th; if you do the math that’s about … More Summer Madness 2015: I’m Not Sleeping For a Month
Normally when I’m at the gym with my personal trainer, we don’t really talk about much apart from what exercises we’ll be doing. We occasionally talk about movies or TV shows that we’re watching, but it’s all chit chat as I try to focus on doing yet another set. So when we recently spent most of … More Do You Even Use the Force, Bro?
When we think of great films by Studio Ghibli, there are several that come to mind. Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro, and Castle in the Sky are just a few examples. For me however, there’s a film in the studio’s repertoire that I love more than any other. What’s strange about my admiration for this piece is that … More Why You Need to See Whisper of the Heart
XKCD said it best, the most powerful gaming systems in the world can’t compete with the addictiveness of flash games. Normally my reviews are about games that are significantly more substantial than the game I’m going to talk about. However I’ve enjoyed playing this so much, that I decided I wanted to write about it. … More Agar.io – Absorbing All of Your Free Time.
Over the past 10 years I’ve collected a large digital music collection. Since getting my first iPod, I have been one of the many who have abandoned physical CDs as my main way of adding new music to my library. Although I haven’t completely stopped purchasing physical media for music, it’s certainly a rarity now. In … More Apple Music: Awesome and Annoying
