Happening in Tokyo

Tonight (December 15), La Fabrique in Shibuya is hosting the next edition of “MedVacances,” “the first and only one event in Tokyo focusing on the music and the life-style of the 22 warm, lively and entertaining countries (Europe, North Africa and the Middle-East) of the Mediterranean area.” Things kick off at 23:30, 3000 yen at […]

Who Am I?

At work I produce a weekly newsletter for our team (we’re over 300, with the majority in Montreal, but with a few satellite groupings around the world) that’s meant to be a fun, social update on what’s going on within the team. I do it because I like the exercise of producing it each week […]

They Live

I kicked off my 1988 movie marathon with this, and I’m glad I did. I really enjoy re-watching all these John Carpenter movies — I was a pretty big fan of his movies after all — and this one is another enjoyable visit. Yes, that 10-minute fight scene (between the two buddies) is still as […]

After keeping my weekly rhythm constant for the first eight editions, it’s now been over a month since the last one, which was never my intention. It started […]

So yes, on top of recently revisiting Ghost Recon Wildlands, and then currently playing The Division, I’ve also started getting into Rainbow Six Siege. My history with the Rainbow games is that I was a huge fan of the two […]

Atomic Blonde

This movie is so ridiculously my jam that it’s, well, ridiculous. I already had high hopes for it after hearing good stuff when it was released in theaters and loving the trailer, and my expectations were surpassed. I got all the brilliant action I was expecting — including that truly brilliant chaotic/messy fight scene in […]
