Being North American (Canadian), my experience is limited to who experiences more prevalent to what is common with western culture. That said, I have never met an atheist who was once Buddhist or Muslim. I have only met Atheists who came up from a Judeo-Christian background or lived through a Judeo-Christian environment. Hence the west. I’m sure they exist but this is only coming from this perspective.Read More
To be antiquated to society frightens me.
I feel like it’s important to always be kept in the loop with what is going on in the world around me. Maybe I don’t understand every bill entered into Canadian parliament or can tell you what’s on Tuesdays on CBS but I at least have a general idea of what’s popular, what isn’t, what’s going on and what’s going to come.Read More
I’m sure you have seen something like this on Facebook. It’s a photo of an American soldier, maybe wounded and back at home. Either his family is with him or he’s near an American flag. In crude writing beside it, you’ll see text that reads, to use as a dated example, “1 million people shared the Ellen photo at the Oscars, but nobody wants to see an American hero!?” You’re of course seeing this because someone on your Facebook friends felt like the message was true and decided to share this photo.Read More
Last week’s episode of Masters of Sex didn’t get a great reaction from everyone who reviews the Showtime series, but for me it was one of the most captivating episodes of any television in recent memory. If not the whole episode, the scene that occurred in the third act between Bill Masters and his estranged brother Frank.Read More
This review is going to discuss plot. Do not read unless you saw the film or you have no interest in seeing the film.
With a title like Let’s Be Cops, you should know what you’re walking into. Even then, it’s difficult not to think about what you just watched after you do.Read More
This has been a very frustrating summer.
Personally it was frustrating but my personal frustrations are quaint in comparison to the frustrations around the world. From ISIS to Ferguson to the backlash against the ALS Ice Bucket challenge, heck just today I’m seeing stolen photos get posted on Twitter of nude celebrities and wondering what is going on. But the one that has really got to me is now being dubbed #GamerGate.Read More
It is the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters. Like many theatres across North America, my local theatre decided to run it for today to celebrate the milestone. I wasn’t born when it was originally released to the big picture, so going today was like my inner child opening like a Pandora’s box.Read More
If there’s one thing I wish I knew more about these days, it’s what is going on in the Middle East, specifically Iraq, involving ISIS. As an uninformed white male my brain immediately goes to Archer and how their organization was called I.S.I.S. and no, that’s not it at all.Read More
Yesterday on Facebook I said that I wouldn’t tell people to vote in the 2014 Ontario Election. It was up to them. The reason is because the Diddy style “VOTE OR DIE” rhetoric does absolutely nothing to influence someone disenchanted with the current political climate to make them feel their vote counts. Looking at the poll numbers it seems I’m correct.
According to Steve Paikin, about 19% of voters gave the Ontario Liberals 100% of the power because voter turnout was at 51.7%. We’re not doing enough to convince people they should vote. Then again, we hardly ever have.Read More
