“Don’t Frown, You’ll Get Wrinkles” and Other Advice I Didn’t Listen To

Ultra Lift Miracle Sleeping Night Cream

Were you ever told that "sage" advice while growing up? Don’t frown, because your face will wrinkle up in a weird way when you’re older. I have a few issues with my eyesight, including a greater sensitivity to sunlight. I always looked angry/frowny-faced while I sat/played/lived in the sunlight, without any sunglasses to speak of. I was already wearing glasses to see properly, … [Read more...]

I Need Spring In My Life And On My Nails (nail art)

Bring the Spring Nail Art

Are your nails blue, because its absolutely freezing outside, instead of some fabulous nail polish colour? I am so very much done with winter, and really need spring to make an appearance, like yesterday (literally, yesterday was way too frigid for my bones.) That's why when #CollectiveBias Social Fabric® made a call for spring-related nail-art, I jumped at the chance to get … [Read more...]

Shomi to Begin Airing Amazon’s “Mozart In The Jungle” Today

Mozart In The Jungle S01E01

Apparently I was living under a rock in late January when Shomi Canada announced it's partnership with to showcase a number of AP's original content to Canadians. This is huge news, as the much coveted TV/Movie portion of Amazon Prime ($99/year subscription service) is not available to the Canadian market.

New Comics Released: Wed Feb 25, 2015, The Joker Edition

Feb 25, 2015 Comic Releases: Joker Edition

I almost called this one the Spider-Gwen edition, 'cause hello Gwen as a spidey hero.  I'll admit I didn't like Gwen so much in the most recent Spider-Man movie, but she had such a huge impact on Peter Parker/Spider-Man in past comics as being his first love, and ultimately was another loved one that he couldn't save from the bad guys. What could that do to a person's psyche, … [Read more...]

Track Your PR Contacts, Blog Ideas and Facebook Posts with These Tools

I'm doing this new trendy thing; trying to keep everything organized, including my blog work. Yes, there truly is such a concept! I was finding that I wasn't really keeping my blog ideas and upcoming events ordered in such a way that I would actually remember to type up events, that interested me most, on time. For instance, up to this point, my weekly comic related posts were … [Read more...]

The Order: 1886 – Reason enough to buy a PS4 Game Console?

The Order:1886 - Reason enough to buy a PS4 Game Console?

Yep, it's true. I bought a PS4 game through pre-order, without actually having a PS4 console at home to play it. Why? That's an entirely great question. This game had a preview at the FAN Expo in Toronto back in August 2014, and it was love at first sight. It's violent, and I'm not usually a big fan of violence, unless its Supernatural (it drives Jay, aka TheHubs, nuts that I … [Read more...]

New Comics Released: Wed Feb 11, 2015, The Valentine’s Edition

SONY and Marvel Studios agreeing to have Spider-Man jump franchises for a MCU movie is an incredible step ahead for the movies we've all been hoping for. It should be a no-brainer to have Spider-Man mingling with Avengers characters, as that's what you get in the comics, so yay for a … [Read more...]

Five Tips to Get the Most out of Your Alcatel One Touch Idol X+


The Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ smartphone, it's quite an enigma. On the one hand, it has amazing battery power while it rests; but on the other, it can be quick to tire if certain apps are in use. Or at least, that's what happened the first time I tried out the phone. Between us, this post below is much different to the first one I wrote, but hadn't yet got a chance to publish … [Read more...]

Where Is Siri’s Twin Brother Sori?

In Search Of Sori, Siri's Twin.

Oh sorry, I'm looking for Sori.  Or more to the point, why are the popular virtual assistants feminized? I have LG's Voice Mate on hand, and it's definitely female. If there's a way to make it sound male, I haven't figured it out yet. I asked it "How do I change your voice?" this afternoon, and it counter-asked me, "Uh, do you want to sing a duet?" Erm yes, that's possibly the … [Read more...]
