Room for the Nostalgia Critic, The Disaster Artist, and Rifftrax

When I think of The Room, three names come to mind: Doug Walker, Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. One of the first friends I made in Canada recommended that I visit thatguywiththeglasses.com, a site that, among other things, reviews movies. In particular, a Nostalgia Critic review of The Room was endorsed. One quiet Saturday afternoon in …

Movie Review: Transcendence

Warning: Spoilers! Although this movie had a similar idea to “Lucy”, its delivery was a lot more enjoyable and the overlaying concept was more interesting. It was a Messiah story, but the artistry employed hid the formula well.

For the Love of Movies

Fox camera

Watching movies with friends is hardly social. It involves sitting and staring at a screen for an extended period of time. It doesn’t sound overly exciting, but this is still one of my favourite pastimes. And I’ve come to realize that I enjoy movies more when I watch them with other people.

Edenic

Aye for India: Fireflies

Chinese Fishing Nets at Fort Kochi

By the time I arrived at the office, I was beyond tired. The building seemed to be moving and time seemed to be standing still. The team was very warm and welcoming, despite my zombie-like appearance.

Aye for India

Losing my job a little over a year ago was one of the best things that could have happened to me. It resulted in me changing outlooks, gaining perspective, making new friends, and flying half way around the world to do so.

Life of Pie

“Prepare to put mustard on those words, for you will soon be consuming them along with this slice of humble pie that comes direct from the oven of shame, set at gas mark egg-on-your-face.” – Moss, ‘The IT Crowd‘ (Season 2, Episode 5) As a perfectionist, I hate mistakes. Discovering mistakes I’ve made is extremely …

Anger and Waste Management

“Here’s a good thing to do if you go to a party and you don’t know anybody: First take out the garbage. Then go around and collect any extra garbage that people might have, like a crumpled napkin, and take that out, too. Pretty soon, people will want to meet the busy garbage guy. ” …

This is my classroom?

The College of the North Atlantic recently ran an advertising campaign showcasing how their students gain hands-on experience while studying. The below ad, however, is slightly ambiguous … or at least I thought it was.

Employment’s End: Fifty Shades of Pink

What exactly is a layoff? Is it only a raised middle finger, wrapped up in terms like “outsourced”, and “long-term business strategy”? Is it a crisis, or is it something more? Whatever it is, it can be a hard pill to swallow, even if it is printed on a pink slip of  paper.

Bullying Stops Here

Last Wednesday was Anti-Bullying Day in Canada. My place of work was filled with pink “Bullying Stops Here” stickers. These stickers could be found everywhere from coats to cubicles. They were also found in less conventional places…

Warcraft 3: Reign of Wingdings

As a nostalgic gamer, I deliberately seek out older games that I enjoyed years ago as opposed to the latest games with the latest graphics. Being a big fan of the original Warcraft games, Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft 3 (2003) was a logical addition to my PC game library. What was not as logical was the game’s end …

The Dreaded Seagull – Terror of Newfoundland

So what animals should we fear in the friendly province of Newfoundland? Moose? Caribou? Well, maybe. But the seagulls are equally ferocious … apparently. Angry Birds – Newfoundland Style (Taken near Gander, Newfoundland) This sign is a little unclear, though. Are seagulls only aggressive to children, or will they also lash out at anyone who acts like …

Antivirus Overdose

“Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.” – Martha Moody, Best Friends To fight the common cold, using every available drug known to man is probably not recommended. Similarly, if you are concerned about computer viruses, downloading every antivirus program you can find is not advisable. Sadly, I speak from experience.

A Joyful Noise

But Jesus answered, “If they keep quiet, these stones will start shouting.” – Luke 19:40 What is that horrible noise? After taking a seat on the bus this afternoon, my ears were attacked by what some might call singing. Out of morbid curiosity, I looked around for the source. What I found was an individual …

Cute Enough to Eat

Following  a late lunch, the Missus and I visited our local pet store. The small shop was swarming with people trying to get a glimpse of three cute kittens. After finally seeing what all the fuss was about, and realising that the store carried more than adorable kittens, we ventured further … and discovered this:

Greener Grass

Taiwan is only a memory away. With the diversity of folk and festivals in St. John’s, the memories are coming thick and fast. The problem with my memories of Taiwan is that they tend to be Utopian, drawing me into a life that never was. How do I accept my new reality when I keep …
