Memories

I don’t have kids but I do have a niece I like hanging out with. She’s seven now and I realized that she virtually never shows up anywhere on my social media. I tend to not post a lot of pictures of people online and that goes more so for kids. I don’t have any […]

The year Prince George got its swag on

Maybe it was the winter games. Maybe it’s the centennial. Maybe it’s the fact that the Cougars have a new set of owners. I don’t know what it is exactly, but somehow it feels like the city of Prince George has changed this year. I’ve suspected it for a while, but now I’m calling it: 2015 […]

Yeah, um, Apple Music is way too complicated. I’m sticking with Rdio

Best Songs of 2014 Long Lists

For the past few years I’ve been putting together a list of my favourite songs of 2014. The first time I did it I had over forty tracks, but I’ve been whittling it down to less every year. I try to do less because I feel like seven hours is too much for most people […]

Not confronting discrimination is a heck of a lot easier when you’re not on the receiving end of it

In a post called “The Racists We Love,” Jay Kirell documents the help he’s had in his life – a family member who got him a job, a manager who gave him a raise, fellow army members who saved his life – from people who hold and communicate racist views: “At no point in time did I […]
