  • Mash-Ups are All Around Us

    You are probably familiar with a musical mashup. This is when a new song is “created by juxtaposing large, recognizable sections of two or more commercially releases songs.” Here is an example of one of my favourites. It combines the sounds of Earth, Wind, and Fire with the vocals of Ozzy Osbourne. “To those who […]

  • Originals Book Review

    Originality is Always the Answer

    Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World by Adam Grant I really enjoyed this book. I took tons of notes while reading it. Here are a few of my takeaways from it.

    Confounding Cereal Aisle

    I find these stores signs absolutely hilarious. What exactly is adult cereal? As I walked down the aisle, I got more confused. What makes a brand of cereal, “Family Cereal”? Is it wrong that I eat many of the “Kid’s Cereal” brands too? I felt compelled to move many of those boxes over to the […]

    Technology Degrades Student Performance

    I think it is a great idea to embrace technology in the classroom. It’s the way the modern world works. Nobody really uses cursive writing to communicate these days. Instead, we type messages, letters, essays, and emails. That’s why using computers is absolutely essential. It is also great to let students read online texts rather […]

    I’ve been nominated for a Forest City London Music Award for the category of “Club DJ.” It feels great to be recognized for what I do. I love London and do my best to uplift the talented musicians we have in this city. I have had the pleasure of rocking the turntables at several different […]

  • Hawkeye - Avenging Archer (Book Review)

    Hawkeye – Avenging Archer

    My introduction to Hawkeye was through the Avengers movies. I knew very little about the character prior to that and, frankly, didn’t find him all that compelling. I reluctantly picked up the 2013 comic book series a few years back and was pleasantly surprised by it. It was a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed. […]

    March – 11 Years Ago

    Every month, I comb through the archive of posts I wrote last year at the time and create a small highlight reel of sorts. There are a few months where I neglected to do so. This year, I am trying to fill in those blanks. With that in mind, let’s take a trip back 11 […]
