FutuRéale Magazine + Links

FutuRéale, a brand new magazine that focuses on Toronto's artistic community, has launched their website.

Visit the site for articles, forums, reviews, podcasts, videocasts, and much more. Yours truly is the Arts & Features Editor, as well as the Host/Producer of the publication's podcast (but more on that later).


I'm adding a new blog to the links section: A Magical World Of Milk and Triangles.

The writer of the blog, Alison, is phenomenal. One day, university students will compare her writing to the likes of Atwood, Munro and Laurence. No bias here ;-)

The Arty Kid

Arty Kid

Whether you were a drama freak or an emo poet, you definitely were expressive and unique.

You're probably a little less weird these days - but even more talented!

Wow, this was bang on.

In other news, full mark to Sun TV for airing old episodes of Super Dave. I loved that show. It was also one of the few shows my family and I would watch together. Nothing says "quality family time" more then watching some poor guy get seriously hurt. Although usually he deserved it.

Worst Goal Ever!

I never played organized hockey. However, if I was a goalie and the puck was bouncing towards me, I would probably get in front of it.

Bosh Is Back!!!

What's this?

Chris Bosh is going play tonight against Miami?


I know winning is a team effort; but CB4's injury has shown how he literally holds the team together. Without Bosh, the Raptors are a mediocre team.

Let's hope the Raps can actually beat the Heat. If they don't, there will be hell to pay.

Heard On The Maury Povich Show

"My son is not the father of this girl's baby. No sixteen-year-old girl is going to ruin my son's life. My son cannot be the father. It's impossible. He only has one testicle."

The woman's son was just a few feet away from her.

Please Help CHEV Radio; Sign Our Petition

Please help CHEV Radio by signing our petition to the CRTC

The Town of Markham, Ontario, is one of the most diverse communities in Canada. With many unique cultural backgrounds, the town deserves an outlet that brings all these cultures together. The best way to do that is through community radio. Since 2004, CHEV Radio has been the voice of Markham; broadcasting sports, entertainment and community programming. CHEV's website ( also has local news stories, community events, podcasts, weather forecasts and traffic updates.

Currently an internet-radio station, CHEV Radio has sent an application to the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for an AM frequency. Unfortunately, the CRTC has been hesitant in giving CHEV a frequency. The reasons for this are unknown. However, CHEV's tireless staff have been working hard for the past two years adhering to the CRTC's requirements.

The residents of Markham deserve a community radio station. The Town of Markham needs CHEV Radio. By signing this petition, we are showing the CRTC that there is a need for a community radio station in Markham. CHEV Radio will bring Markham's diverse residents together and celebrate their diversity. Therefore, it is time for the CRTC to grant an AM frequency to CHEV Radio.

To sign the petition, please click here.

Thank you for your support. Please feel free to forward this message to your friends, co-workers, and family.
