  • Spider-Verse: My Favourite Movie of the Last Decade

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is what I’m calling my new favourite movie since Forgetting Sarah Marshall [2008] (and they’re so different, don’t even bother making me rank them). I’ve spent a lot of time talking with my friends about how much I love this movie, and so far nobody I’ve met in real life has…

    The “Honeymoon” Phase of #JuliaRoberts2015

    Getting married has honestly been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. The idea of committing ones-self to only one other person for the rest of your life seems like the kind of thing that would be terrifying, but so far I have been completely fine with it. “The One Where They Got…

    For some context, yesterday was the first day I tried the futuristic food product called Soylent. It is a food product, not a supplement, so you can survive off this stuff. You can check out my experiences on Day 1 right here, and below, you’ll find my thoughts and feelings, and calorie math about Day…

    Here’s Day 2! I’ll be doing this in live-blog format, keeping things updated throughout the day. The day starts at the bottom and new stuff will show up right below this sentence. Times are in EDT. 9:30 PM Wed.: OK, I’m home after a day of Soylent. I had approximately 2/3 of the first pouch…

  • My Bus Driver Rocks

    My Bus Driver Rocks

    Your typical, run-of-the-mill OC Transpo bus. I couldn’t start the day off right without telling this story. Obviously, everybody has bad experiences with bus drivers sometimes. This isn’t unique to Ottawa, or Canada. Sometimes you catch somebody in a bad mood, and there are probably drivers who revel in the fact that people get upset…

    iOS 9 First Impressions (from the future)

    I’ve been writing part-time for MobileSyrup for a little over a month now, and since this piece is as topical as it will ever be, here is the writing sample I provided that got me started there. These are my predictions of what we can expect from Apple in the next version of their mobile operating…

    Voicemail, Feedback, Future Chat and Ottawhat? (April 15-21)

  • Listening Party Volume 4: The Rock and the Tide

    Listening Party Volume 4: The Rock and the Tide

    This is an old album (released in 2010) but Julia is going through Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix and You Got What I Need came on (House M.D. also features at least one Josh Radin song, Brand New Day). It took me back to that time and it’s just a really great, solid album. All of…
