Maxim Magazine and their involvement with Barenaked Ladies singalongs.

Living in a super old building has a few drawbacks.  Not being able to control the heat is one of them.  Unfortunately, the house knows a few days after the heat wave that the house is now warm enough.  It’s like giving the controls to somebody in BC to run the heat in Ontario.

Wild Tales – 8.7/10

Wild Tales is an Argentinean movie that is made up of 5 or 6 little short stories all about revenge.  It’s excellent! Subtitled though, this used to be a key point in my viewing ability.  “I don’t wants to read.  I wants to watch, I ain’t learnin.”

Everything about buying a suit is awkward.  From the inner seam measurement, to the picking out a $600.00 suit, then to the settling on a clearance suit that is sitting on a rack that is extremely close to the bathroom.

Was able to hit up the golf course finally this past week.  If you ever wondered where every guy over the age of 60 goes at 8am.  It’s to the Brookfield Golf and Country Club.

Sitting around a camp fire is great.  Then the characters come out.  The guy that wants to build the fire extremely high.  The guy that wants to burn everything.  The guy with the acoustic guitar that really likes the Barenaked Ladies.  The guy that thinks telling ghost stories is ironically cool.  The girl that really wants Smores, but gets all of the marshmellow and chocolate all over her hands, and forces you to make the next one.  This is the life of a campfire

How come Don Draper is always sweating after he has a few drinks?

Really bright shoes make you look like you are faster than you actually are.  Why else would you want lime green or bright orange shoes?

There was nobody cooler than the lifeguards at my local swimming pool.  You either wanted to be the person or were in love with the person.  You thought there always could be a chance that she was into you.  Until that time after I executed a perfect can opener that my shorts were coming off when I was getting out of the pool, and some dude named Dean pulled them all the way down.  After that I had no chance.

There was always one guy that everybody watched going off of the diving board.  It was always the really big dude that could make a giant splash.  It was can’t miss action at the pool.

Remember when we were in an uproar about Kris Bryant not starting the year with the Chicago Cubs.  Super-agent Scott Boras is the Kim Kardashian of the sport agent world.

Why does everybody love Agents of Shield so much?  It seems to me that we might be hopped up a little too much on sugar cereal and need to settle down that everything comic book related is awesome.  We are not Sheldon Cooper, we can insist on much more. Just because they introduce a character that you have heard of in past readings of comic books doesn’t mean that they have done a good job with the character.  Rise up fellow nerds.  Demand more from them.  *faints on the ground*

If you use a mouse so much that your hand is now a claw.  You use a mouse too much.

Sirius XM was stuck on a channel in my car this morning.  It was cranked on Liquid Metal.  The neighbours now think that I listen to Type O’ Negative at 7am in the morning.  How does your voice even become that deep?

What We Do In the Shadows – 9.0/10

If you mix Flight of the Concords and the Office together and make it about Vampires you have this movie.  It was one of the best comedies I have seen this year.

Does anyone still buy Maxim magazines?  As a teenager it was the fine line that you had to walk to not look a dirt ball and have your parents accept it if they saw it lying around.

Sara and I went camping to the Pinery recently.  Really nice area.  Except there is a raccoon there named Dwight.  Dwight is the fattest raccoon I have ever seen.  He has no fear of humans, and gets into all the people’s trash.  I would still take him over the Barenaked Ladies acoustic guitar guy.
