End of an Era
Earlier this evening we bid a tearful farewell to our remaining cat, Laila. My brain is in limbo at the moment, because it was not an easy decision (it never really is, though) – and there was greater emotional weight with the added presence of the rest of the family at the end of her time. If you’re looking for some history, I would recommend that you read about the origin of our felines here.

Check out the trailer for this year’s Movie Marathon. Fancy!
Movie Marathon 10
Later this month our annual 24-Hour Movie Marathon will play for the 10th time. Can you believe that we have been doing this for 10 years? If you’re curious, or feeling nostalgic, you can check out both Dave’s and my take on that first Movie Marathon. Movie Marathon 10 will commence at 10:00 AM on Saturday, February 28th!
Here is the list of the movies that we shall be viewing:
- Some Like it Hot
- The Raid 2
- Out of Sight
- Life Itself
- Empire Records
- The Babadook
- The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
The lineup is quite awesome this year. I have seen a few of these – but they are also movies that I am gladly going to watch again. What do you think?

Well, folks! It’s November again – and that means time for me to do something that my wife hates: grow a giant honkin’ moustache. This is, of course, for Movember. Movember started out being an initiative to raise awareness for prostate cancer. It also served as a way to raise research money. Well, over the last few years, Movember has evolved to include men’s health in general – especially mental health issues. I can’t think of a more appropriate time to shine a spotlight on that affliction, considering recent events.
So please, if you have any spare coins lying underneath your couch cushions, please donate to me and my team: just click here.

…to grow a moustache this big.
Little J asks me about doing “the serious photo” in early October. That’s commitment!
All kidding aside, our humble team of 8 raised over $6K to support Movember Canada – a feat which could not have been achieved without your donations. I wish that I could write each and every one of you your own personalized “thank you” note, but I can’t. So I’d like to thank you here for all of your kindness in donating to what I believe is a worthy cause.
I’m hoping that next year we can raise even more!

So, I am currently in the midst of Movember. It is a great cause and I encourage you to back me or my team! If not us – then back someone! Prostate cancer is definitely no joke.
Please check out my Mo Space page here and donate something, if you can! I am trying to keep it updated every few days and I am going for an epic stache!
