Someone Else

You know that really aggressive kind of nostalgia? The type that causes an actual physical ache, like invisible strings constricting around you, tugging you back towards that time? Facebook spit out one of those memories for me this morning. I've always been a fan of pop music, even back when I'd get trampled on the ...

Top 7 Favourite Books

I recently finished the last course of my editing certificate. On the first night of almost every course, we had to share facts about ourselves, which usually included our favourite book. The same students were in most of the classes, so to keep things interesting, I tried to pick a different book each time. This ...

Loving It: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Continuing my time-honoured tradition of being totally late to the party on things, let me tell you about this not-at-all-new TV show I've been watching lately: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I'd heard about the show in passing, but it's not available on any of the streaming services I use, so I hadn't had the chance to watch ...

Loving It: My Dad Wrote a Porno

First up, for anyone who isn't familiar with the podcast I'm talking about, please let me clarify: my Dad didn't write a porno. Thankfully. The closest he's ever come to porn (to my knowledge, at least) was the time that he was showing me pictures of a panda on his phone and scrolled too far. ...

Marvel Marathon Update

I'm almost at the halfway point in my Marvel movie marathon mission, and I have some thoughts about what I've watched so far.

Dadzart: My Night at TSO

My Dad and I (both symphony newbies) spent an evening at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Check out the blog post to see how we enjoyed it and how I tricked him into booking the day off work.

Marvel Marathon Madness

I feel like this is tantamount to blasphemy for a lot of people, but I used to be pretty lukewarm on all things Marvel. Sure, I enjoyed Joss Whedon's Avengers movies, and I loved Jessica Jones, but I couldn't be bothered to watch any of the other movies or TV shows. That is, until I ...

Loving It: Google Home

I've always thought that it would be pretty cool to have an assistant to help me with stuff.: "Jacek, please clear my schedule for this afternoon." "Did anyone call while I was out?" "Get me somebody. Anybody. And get me someone while I'm waiting!" Unfortunately I'm not (even close to) enough of a big shot ...

Loving It: Google Pixel 2

A few weeks ago, I was putting away groceries and listening to a podcast. The cat really wanted to chew on a plastic bag, so he was sulking in the doorway, just waiting for me to leave one unattended. When I finished up, I picked up my phone to move to the living room. At ...

Favourite Christmas Episodes

Christmas episodes are my favourite thing to watch when I don't have time for a full Christmas movie. Here are some of my favourites, all of which are available to stream here in Canada. 10. Full House, "Our Very First Christmas Special" (S2, E9) Although I was a Full House addict when the show originally ...
