Investing in Sound

I’ve wanted a better record player for ages. I had one of those 3-in-one box things that were a CD player, radio and vinyl player at the same time. The problem was that it often didn’t work well for new records because the needle weight couldn’t be adjusted. I usually would mend the problem by…

I’m Tee Ramone

Dee Ramone coming back from the dead #halloween A post shared by Tiana Feng (@tianafeng) on Oct 29, 2015 at 8:16am PDT For Halloween at work I dressed up as Dee Dee Ramone. I got a sick leather jacket from Danier (my first real leather jacket) and a Ramones T-shirt from Forever 21. Don’t I…

Exposure is Poop

.@wilw per your recent post pic.twitter.com/dqH1Y8j58F — Matthew Inman (@Oatmeal) October 29, 2015 In the beginning when you start off a creative career of some sort you might take that opportunity that pays absolutely nothing to get your name out there.

What is Your Least Favourite Halloween Candy?

Now that Halloween is nearing I thought we’d talk about candy. As a kid (and as an adult), I loved all sorts of chips, candy, chocolates but the one thing I never liked wasΒ Tootsie Rolls. I always thought people who gave them out were the worst people. They were probably the people on the block…

Hanmoto

Hanmoto is a super cozy izakaya just off Dundas West on Lakeview Avenue in Toronto. You could walk past it’s slight red glow if you weren’t specifically looking for it. The place is small and seats about 30. I was lucky enough to walk in and get a table for a friend and I. As…

Cracked Apple Cider With Spiced Rum

Continuing my quest to try all the ciders I could find, I stumbled on Cracked Apple Cider with Spiced Rum. I found it resembled more of a mixed rum drink than cider, any hint of apple was overshadowed by rum and spices. It’s not really sour, spicy or sweet. Not sure if I would get…

New Cutting Board

I never thought about getting a new cutting board until I saw this adorable one at Kitchen Stuff Plus. The board comes with four mats that can be used on top to keep the board itself clean and avoid cross-contamination. This one has a board for vegetables, poultry, fish and other meats. I love the…

Thank You Blue Jays

Last night, the Blue Jays lost Game 6 of the ALCS series against the Royals. I was upset, but I realized no other team had made me care about a sport so much in my lifetime. A lot of people were in the same boat. It wasn’t just about bandwagoning or a trend, many people…

Valdez

To celebrate my sister’s graduation we recently went to Valdez, a Latino street food restaurant we discovered from the Toronto episode of Day of Gluttony. The inside of the restaurant was very modern and fit with the landscape of it’s King Street West location. Since we were celebrating something, cocktails were totally mandatory! We happened…

Black Creek Pumpkin Ale

Fall is a popular time for pumpkin ale so I’ve been trying what I can found. Recently I tried Black Creek Brewery’s pumpkin ale. I found it very malty and the taste of pumpkin and spices were pretty faint. It definitely smelled stronger than it tasted. black creekpumpkin alepumpkin beer
