Wheels of Aurelia

Wheels of Aurelia is a surprising game that combines third person driving and narrative to great effect. It's a game that can be played through in under half an hour, but it offers new opportunities to alter the story with each play through. I enjoyed the simple controls, wonderfully stylized visuals and the engaging characters as I wound down the roads. Having the details of Communis

The Cybertronic Spree – Immigrant Song

The Cybertronic Spree are more than just a band that performs as Transformers; they're excellent musicians and have discerning taste in fun songs to cover when not creating solid original songs. This cover of "Immigrant Song" is a great introduction to what they can do.

When I was out for a walk today I found a gathering of starlings keeping watch over shopping carts.

The Secret History of Hollywood has been releasing long-form podcast episodes in the Shadows series since May of 2017 and they are an incredible account of the life of filmmaker Val Lewton and the development of the horror genre in films. The latest episode, The Silent Land, is a deeply affecting one, with the life of Boris Karloff being woven expert

Futility Closet Podcast on the Halifax Explosion

Earlier this month an episode of Futility Closet recounted the story of the Halifax Explosion, one of the pivotal events of my city.

In 1917, a munitions ship exploded in Halifax, Nova Scotia, devastating the city and shattering the lives of its citizens. In this week’s episode of the Futility Closet

Rocky Rivera – Best Shot

Rocky Rivera's Rocky's Revenge was one of the most tragically overlooked albums of 2018. It's packed with great tracks; "Best Shot" is one of many gems.

Martial Arts Panda Figures

When we passed through Guangzhou I picked up these panda figures. I'd love to know more about their origins.

Condensing Board Games

I love board, card, roleplaying and other tabletop games, but they are terribly packaged; the boxes are full of wasted space whether as plastic inserts or just air. The lack of uniformity in boxes makes them a pain to store too. Paper books are so bulky, heavy and hard to manage. It's all unsustainable if space is precious.

I've been working to condense my games

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

I started playing Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! when it was released and was enchanted. I set it aside while traveling and picked it up again last week. Having finished the story, I'm very satisfied with the experience.The new catching mechanics make for a much less frustrating experience, and other quality of life improvements like keeping HMs retired make this the

Murals

In Dartmouth and Halifax we have some stunning murals, and I am capturing some as I spot them. It's so easy to overlook things we pass every day, but I'm trying to see these with fresh eyes.

Rocky Rivera – Best Shot

Rocky Rivera's Rocky's Revenge was one of the great albums from last year, and it definitely hasn't gotten the attention it deserves. It's filled with great tracks, start to finish, and this video for "Best Shot" is a good intro.

Ahead of the new album The Capitalist Blues being released next week, Leyla McCalla has a video for the song "Money is King". It and the album's title track are moving folk songs with an unwavering sense of social justice.

Pokémon Adventures 03

I've been enjoying picking up the Pokemon Adventures manga when I have down time, and it only got better for the third volume. The pacing is very brisk, with exciting character moments, pivotal battles and heartfelt pronouncements about the power of friendship.

A Brief Stop in Guangzhou

We had a short layover in Guangzhou, with enough time to sit down for a nice meal at Jardin De Jade. We each ordered a combo of vegetable salad, boiled veggie and buns stuffed with black mushrooms and vegetables. The descriptions and even menu photos didn't do justice to the quality and quantity that arrived. The meal was delicious and filling. The Longjing (dragon well)

Saying Goodbye to Marikina

We have enjoyed our time in Marikina, and have seen many beautiful things. It has been nice getting to know Tonet's family better. I'll miss the many cats that wander the streets here. I'll miss the wonderful weather and the surprising sights. It's sad to be leaving the Philippines, and I'll carry the good memories with me.
