Day to remember
…After further inspection the stairs were too step to drag my stuff up it. So I decided to just look around aimlessly…
Drinking the black stuff
I think the main reason I started drinking coffee was due to the coffee house craze; which took off quicker than Bush declaring war on Iraq..
Steam Whistle Brewery (Toronto)
Sure Toronto might be expensive *cough* CN Tower *cough*, but all you need is about $5 and a pint of beer to have a really good time. Funny enough good times are to be found right about a five minute walk from the CN Tower in an old converted Rail Station (CPR John Street …
..Some punch the clock at a higher frequency so that they can make an extra buck in order to buy a new $50,000 car. Problem is they already drive a two year old $45,000 car!
The Social Experiment
..Every time I would pay for something on my credit card I would then make sure to act cool and make sure to sign absolutely nothing like my proper signature. The results I may say were quite interesting..
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.

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.
