    • Spore

      by Ian Harding

      I very quickly found that designing my own elements was more tedious than enjoyable. It got to the point where I would put a block, a window, and a door, and click save just so that I could move on with the game.

    • Nights in Rodanthe

      by Pamela Hruska

      If anything, this movie highlights the fact that in any stage of life, you will not evade the debacle of trying to solidify a really firm idea of exactly what you want. Based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, this film captures the author’s style quite closely.

    • The Little Penguin Merlot

      by Adrian Bryksa

      I find myself picking up bottles, reading the labels and examining the packaging and wondering what makes the average consumer choose it over the countless others in the sea of similarly priced products.

    • Against Me! interview with Tom Gabel

      by Adrian Bryksa

      Preceding their latest tour stop in Calgary, I had a chance to sit down with Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel to talk about the tour, the past, the present and the future and also had a chance to spin a few miscellaneous questions in as well.

    • Caves Alianca Quinta dos Quatro Ventos Douro

      by Adrian Bryksa

      I immediately thought that this wine would be an excellent contender for the cellar as in my experience, they often are much better in a few years time when they have had a chance to mellow out in bottle.

    • Chris Gheran & The Graveyard Gang

      by Crom

      A rainbow sprang forth from the speakers, and made it possible for me to again believe that solid tunes can be produced not only in our day and age, but in our area code as well.

    • Nugan Estate Manuka Grove Vineyard Durif

      by Adrian Bryksa

      I remember the day I first tried this wine and it was all I talked about with all my oenophile friends. I rushed out and bought as much as I could and stockpiled it in my cellar. Since then, many Merlots, Shirazes and Chardonnays have become between us.

    • Christian Prommer’s Drumlesson

      by David Gluzman

      I originally sat down on the couch to read the latest issue of WIRED magazine and decided to plop in some new music.. While dodging the overwhelming amount of ads presented to me in the magazine I was suddenly completely unable to stay focused on what I was looking at and was completely absorbed by the music being played.

    • Gems at a Christie’s Auction

      by MaxPower

      Obviously not everyone can or would choose to spend into six or seven digits (or four or five for that matter) for a piece of art, however by viewing the pieces that come up for auction one can get a better understanding of how and why art is priced.

    • Travaglini Gattinara Riserva

      by Adrian Bryksa

      Typically, this is a 90 + point rated wine from Wine Spectator. It is an excellent example of an outstanding medium bodied Nebbiolo from Northern Piedmont in Italy, delivering a slightly hard candy, floral bouquet with a orangish hue.
