Not Your Usual Time Travel Romp

All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai

We didn’t get the future we were supposed to have. Remember when we all thought that by the 2000s we would have flying cars and robot maids? Well, that actually did happen. It was thanks to a renewable and clean source of energy that was created in 1965. And it changed everything.

That’s the premise behind this amazing book by Elan Mastai. It was really hard to put down both physically and mentally. Long after I stopped reading a chapter, the book had me thinking about the fictional clean energy source created in the novel. Why doesn’t this exist in real life, I thought. It just makes so much sense. It doesn’t even feel like science fiction.

The idea is that we create electricity all the time by harnessing the power of spinning turbines. Niagara Falls or windmills create power for us by converting rotational energy into electricity we can use to power all sorts of devices. Now, if we could do this with something that already spins every single day, we would be very well off.

Well, in this novel, a scientist figures out how to use the rotation of the Earth to create limitless energy. It is absolutely brilliant. And when he does this in 1965, it changes everything and a future utopia, like we imaged when we were kids, is born.

Unfortunately, in 2016, another scientist creates a time machine that only works by tracing back the radiation of this power source. This means, they can go back and watch this historic moment. What could go wrong, right?

This story is a page-turner and very well-written. I thoroughly enjoyed it and think you will too.

My List of 2018 Reads – with links to great book reviews just like this one

Everwood is Perfect!

Everwood is perfect television and hands down one of the best programs of all time.

I recently finished watching the entire series again, this time with my wife who had never seen it before.

It was nice being able to watch it again with a fresh set of eyes. This was my fifth time making my way through the whole series. There are only two shows I have seen more times, My So-Called Life, and Star Trek, and while those are great shows, the completeness of this one makes it superior.

The four year story arc for this show is incredible. All the loose ends get tied up. Each and every main character’s story get resolved, and the closure feels great. I especially love the way the finale ties into the pilot. It’s not often that we get television that is able to tell a complete story like this.

It’s hard not to love Doctor Brown, either. His journey is heart-warming and heart-breaking. We get to see him grow into the man his wife always wanted him to be while she was still alive.

I am really surprised that this show is not available of Netflix. It deserves a wider audience. Most people I talk to have never heard of it and that is a shame. It was created by Greg Berlanti who is ruling television now with his roster of DC superhero shows. And speaking of superheroes, Star Lord of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt, is one of the stars of this show. Why isn’t this more of a classic?

Do yourself a favour and find a way to watch this. You won’t be disappointed.

I’m Going on Tour with Tempomental

I am very excited to be hitting the road with Tempomental for his High Road Tour.

We kick things off with an all-ages show in London on Thursday May 17th and keep it moving for every night of the Victoria Day long weekend. I hope you will be able to make one of these shows.

Tempomental is an amazing artist. He has a soulful sound with a boom-bap aesthetic that never fails to disappoint. His live show is something that needs to be seen. I have had the pleasure of seeing him preform both from behind the turntables and from the front row and he is definitely one of my favs.

Chuckie Campbell performs with a live band and brings some deep lyrical content.

Labelled Minority have been making noise for a while now and show that the younger generation of artists still know about real hip-hop music.

That plus, we have great local openers in every city we visit.

So far, we have five dates lined up. If you would like us to visit your city, please hit me up or Danny Gable and we will do our best to make it happen.

For more information – check the Facebook Event pages

I hope to see you at one (or more) of these shows!
