Taking a Break

July 02nd, 2008 | Category: Fantasia,Random,Rants

Although I acknowledge that announcing I am taking a break from blogging is like announcing the continuation of the status quo, because lately my posts have been infrequent to rare, I must nevertheless officially give notice of a month long hiatus from updates to this site. This is of course due to the fact that […]


The Olympics

August 15th, 2008 | Category: olympics,Random,Rants

I don’t give the slighest shit about sports.  So why do I always faithfully watch the Olympics whenever they roll around?  Well, perhaps faithfully is too strong a word.  I leave the TV on in the background while I intertronisize and I periodically check the CBC website to see how Canada is doing in the medal standings.  […]


Olympics part II

August 23rd, 2008 | Category: olympics,Random,Rants

I have a new crush: Adam van Koeverden. He was the flag bearer for the Canadian team at the opening ceremonies for the Beijing games and has recently won a silver medal in flat water kayaking in these Olympics, which he can add to his gold and bronze from Athens. He is super talented and […]

Clearly I should be the Chief Engineer aboard the Enterprise

November 21st, 2008 | Category: Random,Rants

I have often compared myself to Geordie of TNG because of chronic headaches brought on by my VISOR, but it seems of late that I have actually become Scotty from TOS. Remember the TNG episode Relics where Scotty is frozen inside the transporter and the Enterprise D crew revive him and he and Geordie hang […]


So You Think You Can Dance Canada

December 07th, 2008 | Category: Random

It was predictable, but well deserved. Congrats to the dancer who embodies the perfect combination of humility and hotness. Well done, Nico. Feel free to visit my bedroom at anytime you wish, whether or not you are dancing, you will be welcome. Also, let this Canadian finale be a lesson to the American SYTYCD: more […]


Taking a Break (from all my worries sure would help a lot)

February 25th, 2009 | Category: Random,Rants,Reviews

You guessed it, I’m taking a break. I won’t be updating Waste Island for a while because I’m currently working on another project that is also related to WI but will not be shown on niqueworks. That’s right, it’s a secret project. A super secret project. Oooh cryptic. But in the meantime I’ll review Coraline, […]


Terminator: Salvation

May 24th, 2009 | Category: Random,Rants,Reviews,Science-fiction

So, so, so disappointing.  What the hell happened with Christian Bale?  He used to be so awesome but then he started talking in a gravelly voice to be Batman and now he won’t let it go.  I know he’s a good actor because I’ve seen his other work, but he makes a shitty John Connor.  […]


Virtuality & Caprica

June 27th, 2009 | Category: Random,Rants,Reviews,Science-fiction

I hear so many conflicting rumours about new shows that I don’t know what to believe.  Virtuality and Caprica are both pilots for sci-fi shows and I’ve heard they are/are not being picked up so often I just don’t know.  But I sure hope they both get greenlit because they’re both pretty good.  And they both […]


Fantasia 2009

July 03rd, 2009 | Category: Fantasia,Random,Rants

Oh, it’s the same every year. I always swear I’ll cut down on movies, remembering how many of them sucked last year, remembering the pain of waiting for the pitiful organizers to get their shit together, remembering the discomfort of those broken down seats in that half-assed theatre that is really just an outdated auditorium. […]


Fantasia 2009 – schedule

July 05th, 2009 | Category: Fantasia,Random,Rants

KC has requested that I recommend a few choices for this year’s Fantasia.  There are some movies that look good but don’t fit into my schedule so we will be trying to download what we can’t see.  But here are the movies I am planning on viewing:  Yatterman: Kitchy Japanese superhero romp.  A live action version […]
