Spectre is a Giant Sack of Ass

There is a spectre haunting Old Man MacPherson… Was anyone producing this movie? No, I’m seriously asking.

Who is Jessica Jones?

A superhero, stupid! Ever since the incredible success and reception towards Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix series, I’ve been waiting in anticipation for their next series, Jessica Jones, to drop, which is what happened this past Friday.

Skating and educating

Local man is looking to educate Canadian youth about the country’s dark history Micheal Langan certainly wasn’t short on ideas when it came to naming his skateboard company earlier this year.
