Just sharing some casual thoughts on some intriguing cards from Fate Reforged :)
Fate Reforged is due out tomorrow, and, as always, there are a bunch of cards that are intriguing for this casual player. This set had to be built differently, as it is bridging two different draft formats. Fate Reforged will...

A Positive Post about Brands and Products
I've often ranted about terrible advertisements , the evils of unchecked capitalism, and overrated products . For once, I should write something positive. Not everything in this world annoys me. So, why not write about the brands, products, and stores that ...

A casual look at some KTK cards that excite me. :)
(Let's get this out of the way now...) Khans of Tarkir, the newest expansion for Magic: The Gathering, will be out Friday. After attending last weekend's prerelease (and somehow winning it!), and looking over all of the spoil...

We did go to some western restaurant in Halifax towards the end of the tour for lobster.  I'm not going on any of these bus tours ever again.  You basically have to get up at 6am every day an pile into the bus.  Drive for hours, and make a few stops for half and hour to an hour to take pictures and then pile into the bus again.  Just not my idea of a vacation.

Tim's and Wendy's has split for quite some time now.  I would expect that BK may decide to buy out the Wendy's half of the joint buildings.  It'll depend on the terms of the agreement for these particular franchises.  I'm sure that BK does not want to share a building with its competitor.

From a casual player's perspective: 11 intriguing cards from M15
M15, the new core set for Magic: The Gathering, is being released this Friday to lots of anticipation. With the major reboot of M10 in 2009, core sets are far better than they used to be. That said, these summer releases have...

I didn't like hushwing gryph when I was constructing my deck (I pulled 2), but when the opposing 2HG had three magus staffs, I wished I had it.

World Cup Schadenfreude - Brazil Edition
(Give the post a minute to load, will ya?) With the 2014 FIFA World Cup nearing the final weekend, and the Dutch out of contention for the title, I can relax and enjoy the fact that Brazil won't be winning the whole thing. It is no secret I am not fond of B...

I had to check to see if he was killing the animal in the back to make the thing.  I didn't check what ethnic background he was.

Our local mall, but one I would travel to. Brentwood looks quite busy from the full parking lot, but is actually a lot less crowded and full of annoying brats than Metrotown or Lougheed. The Food Court selection is quite good (and not all chains) and there is a full range of shops here.
