Excellent T.V. shows are similar to a passing comet. Majestic in their quality, a wonder to behold, and only obliges we earthlings every so-many years. It’s fleeting, but magnificent . While the networks churn out an endless stream of new shows each season, the truly amazing ones are becoming fewer and farther between. And the ones that start out great tend become trite before the season ends. HBO used to be the go-to for top notch shows, but in this new digital frontier, Netflix is the one to beat. Recently the online streaming service released Master Of None, created by the oh-so-endearing Aziz Ansari – and it’s nothing short of masterful. Continue reading →
It’s official baby. We made it. Still going strong after 4 years. Man, time flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? Apart from family, friends, and my love affair with ice cream sandwiches – my relationship with Netflix has officially become my longest standing significant relationship. And thank god I have a sense of humour about life, because if I didn’t, this realization may cause me to fill a bathtub with a nice cab sauv, a long straw, and drown my sorrows. But instead, I want to mark the occasion with a sentimental love letter, to my dear sweet bae, Netflix. Continue reading →
I am damn good at bingeing. You put a pile of sour candy in front of me? Suddenly in the blink of an eye – POOF – it’s gone. Same thing goes for any type of flavoured popcorn, form of peanut butter, box of cereal or perfectly ripe avocados. There one minute (and in its full form), completely consumed and gone the next. The only way I can explain it is that I go into a fugue state of satisfaction where I can’t remember what I’ve done, but I know I have fulfilled some type of craving. Similarly, I’m a master at binge watching T.V. I often find myself with large windows of free time, and while I promise myself I will do something creative or physically beneficial during these moments, I tend to just stream endless episodes of whatever I’m hooked on at that time. I innocently start with the intention to just watch one episode, but next thing I know – the sun has set, I haven’t moved in hours, but the stories of fictional characters are swimming in my mind. I’m a champion at it. So if you’re looking for some time to kill, please, let me help.

I am by no means professing to know a damn thing about football or any sports for that matter, but I have come to understand that people like to partake in ‘Fantasy Leagues‘ when it comes to their favourite recreational activities. I actually don’t really know what this means, but I’m going to assume you get to put together a group of your choosing, picking your favourite athletes to make up this fantasy team. As a non-sportsfan I still want to partake, so I’ve decided to put together a team of my own ‘Fantasy Crush League’ consisting of some scrumptious fictional characters from my favourite tv shows and movies. Enjoy! Continue reading →
