After seeing an awesome Toronto Raptors game back in the fall, I decided I wanted to see another one! Unfortunately, Drake was not there this time.

The Raptors vs The 76ers and Drake is in the Building

If you have never been to a Raptors game, then you are surely missing out. I had the entertaining pleasure of going to the Raptors vs. the 76ers game on Sunday, November 9th with a few friends.

A Kanye Jack-o-Lantern Kind of Night

When a pumpkin + a love for hip hop + fall + good knife and some patience are all added together, it produces a Kanye West Jack-O-Lantern. As a bonus, a healthy snack can result from the byproduct of the labour (more details on that later in the post). For the longest time, I had been saying that I wanted to carve and create a really cool jack-o-lantern. And while my idea is not the most original ... >

The Weeknd in Toronto for King of the Fall Tour

As I write this post, it is the day after The Weeknd concert in Toronto and I am taking the train en route back to Ottawa. Back in early July, the day tickets went on sale, Harris and I decided with complete certainty that we were going to make this concert happen and attend together.
