  • Stanley Cup Playoffs Preview

    It is the business time of the year for the National Hockey League with the Stanley Cup playoffs ready to start tomorrow. The season was very interesting with the Flyers & Rangers playing for the final spot in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers succeeded. Henrik Sedin won the scoring race pipping Alexander Ovechkin in the last game for the Canucks. This Stanley Cup playoff is wide open as there are several power house teams that have a lot to prove. It is the most exciting time of the year for hockey fans across the world. Here is my preview of the Quarter Finals.

  • Mike Modano - A Big Star

    Mike Modano is the heart and soul of the NHL ice hockey team the Dallas Stars. He has played 20 seasons in the league and looks to be set to retire this season with the Stars failing to make the playoffs again. I would like to pay my respect to the greatest American born ice hockey forward of all time as he laces them up tonight for game no. 1,459 against the franchise where it all started Minnesota. It would be fitting if this is where his career will end.

  • Bat For Lashes - Two Suns Review

    I have been holding back on this review for a while. I want the world to know the brilliance of Natasha Khan who is the architect/mastermind of Bat For Lashes. A new artist that has a lot to offer in a beautiful and fantastic soundscape. I wish to present to you a review of Two Suns.

  • Crosby 7:40

    "So what does the GOLD medal mean to the men & women hockey teams in CANADA?" Well, I can tell you that it means EVERYTHING! Living the Olympic gold medal dream in Canada was the most important reality to surface for this amazing country.

  • Winter Olympics Mens Ice Hockey Competition Analysis

    The 21st Winter Olympics are about to start in Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA. (Will Wayne Gretzky light the Olympic Cauldron?) I am taking a close look at the Men's Ice Hockey competition as it will be a very close match in what could be the greatest Ice Hockey tournament on earth.

  • In A New York Minute

    I want to share my first short stint experience of my stay in New York City with my flatmates & friend. It is a tale of humour and craziness. I hope someday to return to this amazing city as there really is so much to do.

  • Is Love Enough?

    Relationships are only as complicated as what individuals make them. I say Individuals as when two people attempt to become one union it's important to remember that you maintain your own independence. When you are single you feel liberated and in need of finding yourself again. I wonder sometimes if love alone is strong enough to keep a relationship alive?

  • Wrapprz

    Sometimes, we come across a quality product/invention that we just simply cannot ignore. I chanced upon a store which cured my need to protect my iphone. Wrapprz is a skin/protector for various devices. Please read on about this great technology.

  • Jingle Bells Tegan & Sara AFI Review

    Merry Christmas Everybody! I was very fortunate to see three brilliant bands at Save on Foods Memorial Centre Victoria, Vancouver BC. Here is my review of the gig.
