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 ...

Favourite Christmas Music

Now that it's officially December, I feel like it's more socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music--although, let's be honest: I've been listening to it since November. This year, I'm having a few friends over for a small holiday get-together, so I've been even more focused on Christmas music than usual, trying to craft just ...

Favourite Christmas Movies

A few years ago, when I was still living in Waterloo, I had a multi-weekend Christmas movie marathon with two of my best friends. We each took a turn hosting and providing delicious treats. The tradition grew over the next few years, to the point where we watched at least one movie per week from ...

Day 12: Diane Evans

(Or: "Fuck you, Albert") I mentioned in my Log Lady post that I'd also be doing a costume from the new season of Twin Peaks, and here she is: Diane Evans. Although she didn't appear in the original series, Diane's been a legend since we first met Dale Cooper as he talked into his tape ...
