#FlashbackFridays Calvin & Hobbes

#FlashbackFridays Calvin & Hobbes

As a kid, I adored Calvin & Hobbes. What’s not to love? The snowmen sculpture art, the time machine box/transmorgrifier box/duplicator box, and Calvinball all stuck with me for years. But it took a bit of time for me to grow out of liking C&H merely because of the cute tiger doing people things, and … Continue reading

Crazy ads from Japan

Crazy ads from Japan

From anthromorphic talking candy to a man who grows CGI bananas out his head and hands and can shoot them at banana-loving bystanders, some of these ads are not only delightful and silly, but possibly seizure-inducing. Seriously, someday I’m going to go to Japan and just sit in my hotel room all day watching television. … Continue reading

You pick.” The truth is, since owls are naturally nocturnal, whenever … Continue reading

I am happy to say that last week I booked my flights to London, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Chiang Mai, Bangkok, and Phuket – departing from Toronto on March 14th and returning on May 15th. The trip is … Continue reading

#FlashbackFriday The Lion King in 3D

Today merits double the #FlashbackFriday posts because I just remembered that The Lion King is returning to theatres today for the next two weeks, and in 3D to boot. Not that The Lion King needs anything extra or fancy to make it anymore epic than it already is… I remember seeing this movie in theatres … Continue reading

#FlashbackFriday “Is it about my cube?”

Upon finding out that FOX is considering an all-Simpsons network, I was reminded of my all-time favourite childhood show. Since The Simpsons is the same age as I am (the first episode debuted in 1989…you do the math) it’s impossible for me to imagine a world without America’s favourite nuclear family. Without its countless pop … Continue reading
