  • That One Time I Ran Steeplechase

    In middle school, I ran track and cross country. I still remember the first time I went to a meet and saw this beautiful red track. I was in awe. The surface was soft and had a bit of a bounce to it. It was nothing like the dirt tracks I had seen. In fact, […]

  • Star Trek - Planet of the Apes

    Star Trek / Planet of the Apes Crossover

    Star Trek / Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive Star Trek was a television series that ran for three season from from 1966 to 1969. The first Planet of the Apes movie was released in 1968. That is one of the reasons that a crossover event just makes sense. They are both great sci-fi […]

  • FanExpo25 Highlights

    FanExpo celebrated its 25 Anniversary this weekend and I had a blast. The Doctor Who Society always has props that you can get your picture taken with. This year, they had the Face of Boe there.

  • The Strange Library

    What a strange looking book. The front cover opens from the bottom to the top. Underneath it, another flap needs to be folded down. The text on the first page is ridiculously large. It doesn’t quite fit two paragraphs. After that, the text is a more conventional size. There are colourful illustrations throughout as well. […]

  • Supermarket Book Review

    Rapper Pens Great Fiction (Supermarket)

    Supermarket by Bobby Hall I enjoy listening to audiobooks. I borrowed this one on the Libby App from the public library without really looking closely at it. It was recommended to me by a page I work with. The story captured me from the start and I whipped through the audio book quicker than  usual. […]

  • DIY Turntable Covers for DJs

    Here is my basement studio set-up. The only problem is that I want to keep my turntables plugged in and ready to go at a moment’s notice. It’s time-consuming to take the roadcase lid off and place it under the decks every time I want to use them. Then I have to plug them into […]
