Umbrella-ella-ellas everywhere

Isn’t interesting how the same thing presented in two totally different ways can sound diametrically opposed? I can’t even begin to count the number of misunderstandings that have happened between my friends and me ever since we started using instant messaging. Thank goodness to emoticons I have been discovering the magic of acoustic and cover… Read More Umbrella-ella-ellas everywhere

Partying it up in the name of mental health

There is a lovely Persian tradition that turns the longest night of the year, the winter equinox, into a celebration. It’s called ‘Shabeh Yalda’ – Night of Yalda. I find this concept quite brilliant, as it is basically a healthy community approach to combat winter depression. I think more things like this should be put… Read More Partying it up in the name of mental health

Amazing human creativity

I posted a couple of ads from the Brits a couple of days ago. I haven’t been able to find out where they came from, but they are still quite amazing. Enjoy!

So apparently, Joseph Petcka killed a cat. I’m a little confused. Why is this hot news? Why is it at the top of all Google searches? He’s an actor. So? He was on Sex and the City. So? He was a prospect for professional baseball. So? I must be missing something. Because while the act… Read More In the endless search for understanding in a world that doesn’t make sense

8 Classic Movies That Got Away With Gaping Plot Holes

Usually I get annoyed when someone disses something I really like. But I have to hand it to Darach McGarrigle, his critic of one of my favorite movies at the time (hey, I was a teenager) is spot on and hilarious (and slightly edited) : “The Plot: Marty McFly goes back in time, helps his… Read More 8 Classic Movies That Got Away With Gaping Plot Holes

Hockey, Montreal Canadiens

Here we go again…

Ah, hockey. One cannot have lived in Montreal and not become a Montreal Canadiens fan. The NHL team with the most Stanley Cups, with some of the greatest hockey stars, celebrating it’s 100 anniversary this year.

Review: Twilight Saga, by Stephenie Meyer

I’m not certain what makes some stories as popular as they are, while others, of the same caliber, barely make it off the shelves. Certainly Harry Potter was amazing and deserved every bit of the success it got (I myself am the proud owner of the entire set!). But there are other stories of the… Read More Review: Twilight Saga, by Stephenie Meyer
