Why I will never buy Maxtor ever again
This really boils my blood, not only has Maxtor not lived upto it’s service, warranty or customer satisfaction, but now I would have to spend MORE money (about 20 bucks) in returning a drive..
…Theses stealthy bastards camp out in undercover cop cars tagging speedsters while having a nap or chewing on a donut. God I hate photo radar…
Lost in Fashion
…Ah yes my beloved ties… I think that word could be synonymous with management. Every time I think of a manager I think of some moron telling me what to do with a clashing tie around his eight ball…
Lamb – Between Darkness and Wonder
The mid 1990’s introduced me to a new style of music that has forever changed the way I listen to music. I remember when I first heard Massive Attack and the dark sounds of Tricky I had immediately found a new direction to take my CD collection. Morcheeba also had a huge amount of influence …
A Fine Cheese
She had just turned 18 and was out ripping it up at the club, but then it dawned on me that she was born in 1985! Heck, I remember what I was doing in 1985, and that made me feel really old..
Scissorkicks – Live Mix at the grill (blizzarts), Montreal
The last time I went to get groceries I casually poped in this album, then found myself getting to safeway in record time. This album is full of phat breaking beats, and just makes you want to drive like a maniac. Possibly a good thing, but I’m sure your parents would disagree. Loud music combined …

Sónar 2010 – Barcelona, Spain
The festival attracts a lot of outsiders, but the Mediterranean, Spanish and more specifically Catalan nature of the people makes the festival what it is. Catalan people are passionate and this passion is infectious. The atmosphere is electric in Barcelona as a city and heightened by music and intoxicants at Sónar.
Summer Party Naval Styles at Seven RestoLounge
Oysters, like wine are affected by terroir and these Miyagi’s flavor profiles ranged with one showing a cleaner, almost tropical profile and the other being more salty, marine driven. As I was devouring the seemingly endless plates put in front of us, I sipped on a glass of fine sauvignon blanc.

O Restaurant & Lounge revisited
Calgary has a diverse set of urban communities, most of which have the ubiquitous strip mall watering hole. In the South West community of Marda Loop, a reinvention of this paradigm has been established.
Predictions 2010.. and beyond!
So 2010 eh? Almost but not quite (no year zero they say) another decade? It seems like just yesterday that the world was waiting for Y2K. R4NT started publishing in March 2001, so we’re not quite 10 years old yet, but in internet years we are already a senior citizen.
No matter what, the reality of Nelson Mandela is something that deserves screen time. Should this film even remotely intrigue the masses to take interest in this figure, the world would likely benefit greatly from it.
