Loot Crate- September 2013 Edition!

September’s Loot Crate theme is ANIMATE and I think this is my favourite one to date! This Stimpy doll from Jazwares has a squeaky nose and elastic tongue. Oh, it also talks. Reliving some childhood Nicktoon days. Egoraptor made this really creepy Pikachu sticker and Bizklimkit mashed Ninja Turtles and Storm Troopers in a magnet.…

This Ain’t No Piece of Cake

This board game is named Piece O’ Cake. However, when you assemble it and put it together, it is clearly pie. Anyways, the object is to gain as many points as you can by eating the most out of the matching pieces. You also gain points for discarding (or forfeiting) pieces you know you won’t…

What’s Your Evil Plan?

“Evil Plans- Having Fun onΒ the Road to World Domination” is a cleverly titled book from comic writer and entrepreneur Hugh MacLeod. In fact, I actually discovered the book because it was sitting in the discount book section at Chapters and it sounded both adorable and intriguing. To those unfamiliar, MacLeod is the artist behind gapingvoid.com.…

Rabbit and Other Meats at Big Crow

Situated behind Rose & Sons is what looks like someone’s fancy backyard picnic. We probably wouldn’t have stumbled on Big Crow if we weren’t specifically looking for it. Rose & Sons is pretty new and they’ve already added this cool looking BBQ cook-out to its backyard. You can see the cooks grilling everything on the…

Moleskine Celebrates The Cassette

I love Moleskine notebooks and I usually have one in some shape or form around me at all times. During NXNE, I lost my mini-staff paper ruled book I was using for concert reviews. Funny story, it’s actually somewhere on the other side of the world. A musician had found it while in town for…

Introducing.. Tracks Only

As you know, I run music blog Ride the Tempo, which promotes independent Canadian music. I decided today to launch at TumblrΒ called Tracks Only,Β to have a platform for quickly sharing some of the great non-Canadian music that I find. It’ll be tracks only, letting the music speak for itself.       musicsocial mediatracks onlytumblr
