Friday Fun Link – An Exchange I Never Thought I’d Hear on CNN

This is exponentially the craziest election I’ve ever seen. People are observing that instead of an “October Surprise”, Donald Trump appears to have an “October Advent Calendar” with a shocking new revelation or error every single day. Today’s video of him making crude comments about cheating on his wife, an actress he’s about to meet, and […]

MetaFilter on the First Presidential Debate

MetaFilter’s been having ongoing mega-threads every few days for MeFites to discuss the election.  They started the latest one for Monday night’s debate.

Music Tuesday – “Going to the candidate’s debate/Laugh about it, Shout about it/When you’ve got to choose/Every way you look at it, you lose.”

I didn’t a Music Monday song yesterday since I was too excited about making a snarky Donald Trump post.  But how can I not post this? “Mrs. Robinson” – Simon & Garfunkel

Friday Fun Link – @roryallenmusic Promoting @officialRPL Regent 50th “Retro” Party on @ctvreginalive #yqr

Had a blast appearing on CTV Morning Live with Rory Allen tomorrow to promote Regent Place branch’s 50th Anniversary “Retro” Event. The event is going to be totally groovy! Rory will be performing throughout the afternoon (and taking photos and signing autographs when he’s not performing), we’ll have a costume contest, retro snacks (featuring a […]

Netflix’s “Narcos” Renewed For Two More Seasons

Shea and I were just talking last night about how sad we’ll be when we finish this season of “Narcos” (we have two episodes left) finishes since (spoiler alert) we’re pretty sure we know how this based-on-a-true-story saga ends. But happy news today – NetFlix has announced they’ve renewed “Narcos” for two more seasons and […]

Friday Fun Link – The Tragically Hip: A Chronology

Tomorrow’s the big night for the last Tragically Hip concert during their final cross-Canada tour so here’s a few full-length concerts from throughout their career to whet your appetite: One from their earliest days, recorded live for MuchMusic… A concert from perhaps the height of their fame during one of their Another Roadside Attraction concerts… One from the […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Three Obituaries

Usually Throwback Thursday is for a photo from the old days but I’ve got a collection of obituaries I’ve come across recently that I thought I’d discuss instead since all three send me down memory lane in different ways… Author, publisher, businessman and activist, Mel Hurtig, passed away yesterday. I never got to meet him […]

Friday Fun Link – God, I Miss Jon Stewart

Luckily, he’s living under Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” desk… (Oh, and here’s a summary of 25 of Trump’s biggest lies, exaggerations and misrepresentations from his convention speech last night.)

Game of Thrones’ Best Fight Scenes (Set to Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs”)

The final episode of season 6 airs tonight and after last week’s episode (which is the highest rated single episode of a TV show in history), I can’t wait! This clip is a good warm-up for the series finale.  Warning: contains so much awesome…

One Legged Former Wrestler, Zach Gowen, Kicks Ass on American Ninja Warrior

I remember watching Zach Gowen during his run in the WWE and being as impressed with his mental approach to life as his physical approach. He’s no longer in the WWE but he’s still showing how he can overcome obstacles using a combination of physical and mental toughness. Pretty amazing!
