Make More Inconvenience

I understand wanting to be secure and prevent crime, but this seems a bit much. If you’ve gone to a Rogers store during business hours recently and were wondering why the door is locked, the company wants you to know it’s the result of a policy change aimed at preventing robberies and fraud. The Canadian telecom …

Don’t Make Me Tell You Again Again

Male with two lifetime driving bans caught driving again, say police Just going to go ahead and ask the obvious question here. How is it possible to be banned for life from the same thing twice? But perhaps more importantly, why? What good is it doing? Clearly not much. Let’s think about this a moment. …

I Love Seth Meyers’ Trump Impression

Perhaps there are people who do a technically better one, but Seth Meyers does my favourite Donald Trump impression. Admittedly I haven’t seen every Trump impersonator there is, but nobody I’ve seen does quite as good a job of capturing just how weird and out to lunch the guy can be. As an example, I …

The Sony CFS-C7 CHORDMACHINE

I have no idea what 1982 Sony was trying to create here. It seems a bit too sophisticated to have been intended as a toy, but nowhere near sophisticated enough to be taken seriously as any sort of musical instrument or recording device.

Gotta Fire ‘Em All

Sometimes I watch the news and I ask myself damn, what does it take for a cop to get fired? Christ, I’ve seen them straight up murder people who couldn’t have possibly posed a threat to them and get little if anything in the way of professional repercussions in return. But today, while going through …

Journey And Solo Steve Perry Narrate Your Day

This one’s kind of hit and miss, but the Smoke Alarms bit made me laugh. The damn thing even fooled me into getting pissed off for a second when I thought it was our actual smoke detector about to go off for no reason when neither of us in the house could deal with it. …

It’s Personal (Updates On Gill’s Mom)

Jesus, Gill. When it rains it pours for you, doesn’t it? As ever, you and the rest of the family are in our thoughts. And if I can offer one piece of advice, it would be don’t blame yourself for any of this. It’s tempting to let our minds run wild at times like these, …
