A Message to Raymond, Grammar Troll and Owner of Leaside Paint Centre

Some might call this an unnecessary vent that I probably should just brush aside. To be frank, I haven’t really had the opportunity to rant or vent about anything on my blog since 2009. And really, you can only be polite so much before you explode. So I’m letting myself do just that. I recently published an article on one of the many guest sites that I contribute to. Most of the time, the comment section is always a cesspool and/or breeding ground of low-lifes and extremists,  ...

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End PS4 Single Player Story Review

I had the pleasure of playing Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for a few weeks now, and damn – it’s one exceptional experience. As a casual player of the previous three installments of the Uncharted series, A Thief’s End ups the ante with new features that elevate the power of PS4. As my last review on the Uncharted trilogy stated: the previous upgrades look good on paper, but don’t actually make full use out of the PS4’s mechanics and its potential wow-factor.  ...

Summer Beer of Choice: Tyskie Pilsner Lager

With May 2-4 weekend ahead of us, it’s time to start packing the coolers and stocking the cottage fridge with beers of all variety. For some, the choice of beer comes down to cheap thrills while others prefer the R&R with a curated selection of both Ontario brews and imports. The lager is a staple – and as a suggestion for those looking to stock up on unique options, the Tyskie has my seal of approval. As a light pilsner lager and one of the most popular beers out of Poland, the  ...

9 Stylish Features in the 2016 Jaguar XJL

There’s something synonymous between style and the Jaguar. Call it a bond between the British luxury car maker and its visionary design director, Ian Callum. Or maybe it’s the decades of industry-leading design, dating back to 1945. Or it could be as simple as saying the jaguar is the coolest feline in the animal kingdom. Whatever that theoretical reason may be: the Jaguar and its ferocious style are predatory in the auto industry. Oddly enough, when someone thinks of a modern  ...

This App Lets You Teleport Your Friends To You

Before I get you too excited – no, humanity hasn’t discovered the technology for science fiction’s greatest invention. No dematerialization, no flashing blue lights shot from the skies, no Jumper. In our current state of advanced technology, we’re just skimming the surface of virtual reality’s practical application, 3D TV’s still require a goofy headset, and we can get hoverboards in the air for 10 minutes tops. While teleportation is in my top three  ...

Celebrate Scotland Week with Innis & Gunn and Haggis Recipes

You know what I love? Innis & Gunn. Has that richness that only the true, bold beer drinkers enjoy, with hints of scotch and other lovely delights with each sip. Granted, the richness keeps the chugging to a minimum – I love to kick start an evening sipping through one or two bottles then move to something else (usually less flavourful). Innis & Gunn isn’t meant to be devoured in mass quantities like a Bud Lite; it’s a well rounded beer that ensures each sip is a  ...
