Precise Gymnastics with Wil Wheaton at an Electric Six concert

Whoever makes the Girl Guide Cookies made a big mistake by changing the recipe. We all taste the difference, and are disappointed with the end result. I will still buy them, but I am no longer going to buy the 6 boxes at once.

We were able to go trick or treating around the office at Halloween time. People had candy out on their desk to be able to scoop up. We made the calculated decision to go at lunch hour so that we wouldn’t have to see that “maybe you shouldn’t take that extra one; because everybody needs a chance to get one” look on their face when they weren’t there.

Electric Six are coming to town again. This is one of the best bands to see live. Energy, fantastic riffs, and the fact that only about 20 people are in the crowd are all excellent reasons to see them.

I once went as MC Hammer to a bar in my home town for Halloween. I remember very little about this evening, but I do remember that most people thought I was Aladdin. Until Can’t Touch This came on. The crowd went into a frenzy as I shuffled across the floor with extreme precision. It is still talked about to this day by the locals.

Anybody else have an uneasy feeling while walking on train tracks? And it’s only because of Stand by Me that I have these feelings. And the fact that Wil Wheaton is everywhere makes me always think of this.

Yesterday, part of the family won an experience put on by Xbox Canada. It was a real life Lara Croft: Tomb Raider experience on a farm in Uxbridge. We competed against other teams in events like Axe Throwing, Rock Climbing, and Arrow Shooting. It was a fantastic event, and an extremely tough workout. And if you guessed that I am amazing at axe throwing you would be guessing right. If you guessed that I would be great at arrow shooting. Well…

I have only ate too many marsh-mellows once. It was once too many. There are certain things that you throw-up that make it look like you should go to the hospital. Marsh-mellows are one of those items. So is clamato juice.

Keith Urban stated recently that he wished he would have wrote the song “Pretty Pimpin” by Kurt Vile. Respect level has risen to 3 out of 100 for Keith Urban.

Black Sabbath is on tour. I remember seeing them when I was in college 15-20 years ago. They were fu**ing old then.

One of the groups that were part of the Xbox event was a band. They were all dressed in leather jackets with the band’s name on the back of their jackets. Each band member had the exact same haircut of the shaved underneath, grown over look while wearing shades in the pouring rain. I saw one band member reading a book. It was called: The Douchebag guide to all things douchey.

The Gift – 7.7/10
End of the Tour – 8.2/10

The Gift is a decent thriller with a few twists and turns about a man having his past coming back to haunt him.

The End of the Tour is a Rolling Stone story that never saw the light of day. Based on an interview done with a well-known author who committed suicide.

I am off to Palm Springs, California for work tomorrow. I hope it snows here.

We all had that person that called you buy your brother’s name. Mine was my gym teacher. The unfortunate part was that my brother was a better athlete then I was. I overheard some of his comments. “Why can’t Smith dribble? When did he get so bad at floor hockey? I don’t remember him being so graceful in gymnastics.”

Liquid metal did it all for the Nookie

Volkswagon! Why? “Also the airbags don’t work. Didn’t think anyone would notice that either.”

Kurt Vile has made a wonderful new record – b’lieve I am goin down. Guitar work is immaculate, and the tone of the whole album in general is just a thing of beauty. 8.9/10

I like being experimental with food. Except for with chips. You are the worst if you are hosting an event and everybody is enjoying the evening and you go to grab snacks and this is said right after. “I haven’t tried these before, but they look great. Avocado barbeque chips anyone?” I know some of you think that sounds good. Well, it kind of does, but please have dill pickle on file just in case.

Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl – 8.4/10

Perfectly shot and fantastically written. Tough story line, but really well done. I recommend this to everyone, including you Dhooma. If it has more than 3 paragraphs of dialogue and no robots Dhooma is out.

Fantasy Football is a roller coaster of emotion. You believe your team is solid. Davante Adams is going to break out this year. 2 weeks later. “Davante Adams is sh**!”

In recent studies it has shown that Toronto is the worst city in North America to drive in. Great night tonight. Paid $200.00 for each Leaf ticket, was stuck in traffic for 2 hours. Paid $40.00 for parking, and the Leafs lost 5-0. And we are just now figuring out that this isn’t a fantastic evening for the whole family.

At one point in my life I was playing the Sims and made the Sims all my current friend’s names. I would walk around town and talk to them and see what they were up to. It was entertaining to see what they were doing, and see how closely they resembled my actual friends. I then realized that I could actually really do this if I wanted to, and stopped playing the game.

There was always that one kid at the pool that attempted to do crazy stunts off of the diving board. You knew one of these times he was going to really hurt someone or himself, but somehow it never happened. Wonder what he is doing now?

Everyone always feels uncomfortable around police officers. Even if we aren’t doing anything wrong. We just assume that they are like the Terminator from T2. They are going to look right at us, understand that there was a point that we did glance at our phone while driving; morph from liquid metal into a motorcycle and come after us.

There should be support groups for bad music that we have purchased when we were younger. Sit around in a circle and talk about it. “How did you feel the first time that you heard Nookie? Did you feel like you did it all for that?”

Halloween is coming up. I do enjoy dressing up. I always get put into costumes that are extremely uncomfortable, and have to grow a moustache for. Actually I think this is my own doing. I just look so damn attractive with that beautiful area of hair above my upper lip.

There are three times in my life that I have agreed to things that I wouldn’t have normally agreed to; because I didn’t hear what they said and was just trying to be polite.

You would think that I would follow this up with my top 3, but the Jays game is starting.  D Smith out!
