I wished that Sex and the city would some day come back with another season, and like all wishes that come true, they are an awkward, mishaped version of what you actually wanted – kind of like an inbred child (<–top left). And sometimes that little cross-eyed ball of joy turns out to be exactly what you needed. Well folks, HBO’s new series, GIRLS is that deformed miracle. Created by 26-year old Lena Dunham, the show follows the lives of a close-knit group of twenty-somethings as they attempt to chart their lives in New York City. The pilot begins with the central character, Hannah (played by Dunham), being cut-off from the financial support of her parents, as she is left to face the reality of finding a “real” job to make ends meet, all the while attempting to flourish as a writer and navigate through her awkward personal life. GIRLS provides an honest portrayal of young women pursuing their dreams in New York, and the hilariously painful truths of it all. It’s funny, inappropriate, and authentic. In short, MY NEW FAVOURITE SHOW.

The first season has already ended, so get on it!
Check out this trailer !


Aries:  You will eat a meal today that was once covered in Bat feces. Poo!

Libra:  The creepy looking dog you saw earlier is actually a rabid wolf dressed up for Halloween. Deadly!

Taurus:  Long lasting deodorant? More like chlorophyll!

Scorpio:  Stop being such a witch.  Unless you are serious about the wicken ways.  Much respect.

Gemini:  Do no help someone in need today.  They will murder you and feed you to their pet lion.  Spooky!

Cancer:  You smell like an egg salad sandwich.  Narly.

Leo:  I hope you aren’t going to the washroom right now.  I guarantee you that there is a python in your toilet.  Oh ssssnap.

Virgo:  Shave your face tonight.  Tomorrow something will start growing under your nose and will remain there for a whole month.

Sagittarius: Do not eat an apple today.  There will be a needle in it and you will get infected with a serious and deadly virus!  Scandalous!

Capricorn: Don’t panic, but there is a ghost on or in your genitals.  Uh oh!

Aquarius: You will start a new job of some sort today. Most likely cleaning out dead peoples organs.  Gruesome!

Pisces: The ghost of your great grandmother is living in your neighbours Schnauzer.  Go to her.

Ophiuchus: You don’t even exist. Today or ever.  Eeerie!


Do you love music?  Do you love not being naked?  Well, we’ve got the website for you!

The staff at Guataca Music Wear are hardcore music fans and believe that nothing says ‘rock and roll’ like the emblematic black band t-shirt.  Created by world class designers these t-shirts are being brought to you as a part of a movement to help ensure children across the country have access to music programs at school.

Guataca wha?  What does guataca mean?  Guataca is Venezuelan slang. The word is used to describe musicians who have the ability to “play by ear.” If you have Guataca, making music is something that will come naturally.

When you purchase a Guataca Music Wear tee, a portion of the proceeds is donated directly to MusiCounts, a Canadian music education charity. MusiCounts’ mission is to insist that all Canadian children, regardless of cultural background or socio-economic circumstances have access to a comprehensive music program through their school.

Check out Guataca Music Wear today and support a kid who wants to play the guitar or the drums or flute or saxaphone or harp or banjo or xylophone or trumpet or the weird kid who just likes to snap.  Don’t be this guy, be cool and buy a t-shirt.


“bored? try this game! I got 10.4 seconds on my first try!”

New Section Alert!!!
Okay so I have this talented intern.  His name is Cass King.  We call him the King of the Cass.  Little something I stirred up, no big deal.. I’m pretty funny.

Anyways, sometimes I don’t have anything exciting to give him so I tell him to look for pictures and other boring stuff.  Well, no longer will his life be lived in shambles.  He is now the dedicated creator of our photoshop-faceoff picture contest.

Here’s the deal, look at the pic below and tell us how many weird random stuff is in it that doesn’t belong.  The first right person will have a poem written about him/her (written by Cass to give him more stuff to do) and published on here!  Are you hungry for fame???  This will be the fastest way to climb the fame ladder from z to a!  Click on the picture to make it full size, it will blow your mind!


Vote for either Laura and I! Mines purple..so you should probably vote for me!

In case you didn’t know it is Laura’s Birthday this Sunday.  Laura will be turning 25 which is kind of a big deal.

I would like to dedicate the next month of blog posts to Laura.  Laura is a friend and a scholar.

This is the ending of Laura’s all-time favourite movie.  Happy birthday laura!


I know we haven’t done a Rita Rating in a while and I have a good reason for that. After seeing this movie, I couldn’t figure out if my life was real or if I was a crazy person on an island. So for the last few weeks I have been asking people…”Am I a crazy person living on an island?” Instead of getting a straight answer from anyone…I just had people looking at me like I had 16 heads (not very reassuring).

Anyways, the point is this movie is pretty great. So great in fact that it made me question my own sanity. Leonardo Dicaprio does a stellar job portraying Teddy Daniels who is investigating the disappearance of a patient from Boston‘s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. There’s about 42 twists and turns in this movie and I’m not going to reveal any of them. You need to watch this movie. Get up. Get your pants on and drive to the movie store. Pick up Shutter Island and some Junior Mints. Drive over here, drop off the junior mints and then go home and watch the movie.

I give Shutter Island 4 Rita’s in a high fashion leather straight jacket and 1 Ann Murray album cover (this counts as a half..because Anne doesn’t have the same street cred as Rita) Total 4.5 out of 5.

Laura what did you think?

Well Robin, you completely missed the mark with this one. As usual. The movie isn’t just “pretty great”. Its amazing. So amazing that I’m not even upset that Leo dies at the end. *spoiler alert*. just like in Inception *spoiler alert*.  Nevertheless, this movie blew my mind. And for all of you who saw it and said that you knew the ending the whole time because you are super smart – you’re full of poo or you just didn’t get it. If you haven’t seen it yet, do what Robin says and get your pants or your fundies on, and rent this movie immediately. don’t you wanna know how leo dies?

I give this movie FIVE “leonardo dicaprio making out with rita” ritas out of FIVE
