A&W Canada Beyond Meat Burger

Beyond Meat

No, I didn’t go vegan or Soylent (which is made from people, so ick). A&W Canada (which is entirely independent of the American chain with the same name, and which, unlike its American namesake, has a corporate stance on improved animal welfare with third party verification in its supply chain) has been making a bit […]

Wow! Wow! Wow! Who’d have thought that Justin Pierre James Trudeau, the eldest son of Canada’s greatest Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, would one day become a supervillain with luxurious hair responsible for atrocities including burning down the White House 157 years before his birth, and championing universal health care, truth and equal rights? Then […]

Life imitates art

So last week I tapped out a joke about there not being any « R.C. wuz here » micrograffiti, because at the time, the very oblique reference to the Kids in the Hall made me laugh (much to my immediate detriment). Lo and behold, this week comes news that life imitates art, in that surgeon […]

Well, that was interesting… I appear to have survived Pearl Harbor Day with a quad no less. Haven’t sprung a leak and there does not appear to be any “R.C. wuz here” micro-graffiti as far as I can tell. Yeah! (not that Howard Dean “yeah!” either)

August 17

August 17

Today is August 17. It’s the day after the 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, and the day after the 50th anniversary of the Clown’s establishment of beachhead in Canada. It’s going to be pretty sunny but not too warm and without any effect of humidex to make things unpleasant. I’m going to be […]

Kazan's Panic in the Streets

Panic in the streets

It’s the Rapture! There’s Panic in the Streets! Why? Alberta is now under the Orange Hammer and Sickle, as it has elected the New Democratic Party to a majority government, ousting the provincial Progressive Conservatives after 44 years of non-stop rule and relegating the former ruling party to third to boot. They even elected a […]

Unboxing of the Corporate McBerry (the Blackberry Classic)


I have got to admit that John Chen is a consummate professional, as he’s had essentially the thankless job of turning around Blackberry Ltd. after years of mismanagement and his predecessor Thorsten Heins’ ill-fated tenure in the CEO chair. I packed a Blackberry for the better part of 5 years while I worked in the […]

Frozen dim sum

I love dim sum. It’s one of those foods I don’t mind eating constantly because the variety changes constantly and the experience changes because there is always inconsistencies coming out of eat dim sum kitchen depending on the service, what they can get ingredient-wise, and whether one is lucky enough to pull a basket as […]

Wow – Laura Martinez of Mi blog es tu blog was right: NAFTA really did suck for Canadians. We send the auto manufacturing jobs, energy and natural resources south, and what did we get? …tortillas for $5 per kg. And not particularly fresh ones at that price either. I pass this particular unnamed stand every […]

These are some grapes that I purchased recently. Neither variety is seedless, though the skins on the black one are somewhat thicker than the green ones. They do have nuances in flavor. Just so’s you know, I prefer that the green ones be peeled in a spiral-cut manner starting from the stem end in a […]
