Adventures in Wrestling – Me and Edge

Kurrgan, Brian, Edge

There was a time I was a cool wrestling journalist who worked for TSN.ca. I got to hang out with a bunch of different wrestlers, and once upon a time I got to hang out with WWE Superstar Edge in the Blue Jay’s clubhouse for a day.

Cursed: Black Swan – A Review

Cursed: Black Swan - A Fixer Novel

I have followed Ryan McFadden’s writing career since it was in its embryonic stage. It’s no secret we’ve been besties since high school, we’ve been in each other’s wedding parties, and we’re each other’s “go to” when we need a good swift kick in the ass (metaphorically or physically). The novel that has become Cursed:… Continue reading Cursed: Black Swan – A Review

My butter chicken recipe

Butter Chicken is one of my favourite Indian dishes, but it’s one I’ve always been afraid to try to make on my own. When I started reading about the ingredients though, I started to see that it should be fairly easy to make. I think the best butter chicken comes from chicken cooked in a… Continue reading My butter chicken recipe

The Personality of Cities

Kindle first thoughts

When the new WiFi Kindles were announced last month, I placed an order for one. I’ve been slowly transitioning from dead tree editions to electronic books for a while now (all but comics, which I’m still buying analogue style for now). Physically owning objects is more of a hassle than it’s worth to be honest,… Continue reading Kindle first thoughts

This…is my masterpiece

I love a good April Fools day joke. I was a part of a number of them at TSN (my recurring “Sid Drake” character was continually making appearances in the WWF in the late 90’s), and I’ve pulled a couple of doozies on my own websites over the years (including last year’s), but for this… Continue reading This…is my masterpiece

Our Lady Peace rocks London

Last night Char and I went to see Our Lady Peace do their first of two shows here in London. The shows are a pretty cool concept, the first night they play the entire 1997 album Clumsy, and on the second night they play the entire 2000 album Spiritual Machines. After reading some pretty good… Continue reading Our Lady Peace rocks London
