  • Mastermind Street Jam – Tape 31 (Dec ’95)

    Here is Tape 31 of my collection of Mastermind Street Jam radio shows. This was one of the best hip-hop radio shows ever. DJ Mastermind held it down for real hip-hop music back in the 1990s on commercial radio in Canada. This episode features a special announcement. You can probably guess what that is from […]

  • King Cruff on Word is Bond Rap Radio

    You’ve heard King Cruff on Word is Bond Rap Radio plenty of times over the years. You might not recognize the name because he used to go by Solyd Roy. But get familiar, he is making big moves.

  • Green Lantern Binge #2

    Earlier this year, I dived into the fourth volume of Green Lantern comics and binge-read six years worth of books in just a few weeks. That series ended with a cliffhanger that made me want to jump right into the fifth volume, but I thought I’d read a few other things first. Well, I just […]

  • Mastermind Super Mixtape 20 (December 1995)

    We’re going to take a break from the radio show this week to present you with a mixtape. This was Tape 20 of Mastermind’s Super-Mixtape series, which could be purchased in record stores worldwide. Being the cheapskate that I am, I only bought this one tape and I somehow lost the cover art over the […]

  • Wait for . . . Another Book

    Wait for Me by Samantha Chase I make sure to have a book nearby at all times. The public library makes that easy with their Libby app. I always have an ebook downloaded and available on my phone. This way, when I find myself with a few moments of time where I have nothing to do, I […]

  • Where Do You See Yourself in 5 Years? (Book Review)

    In Five Years by Rebecca Serle You know that question you often get asked in job interviews, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” Danni was asked that question when she went after her dream job at the biggest legal firm in town. She had her answer ready too, but there was no way […]

  • Oh Deer, Unxepected Running Companions

    Komoka Provincial Park is one of my favourite places to run. I haven’t ran the front portion of the trail, the one that starts on Oxford Road, in a while. I have mainly been running the blue trail lately. But I felt like a change, and boy did I get one. When I got to […]
