Rock Around the Christmas Tree with Musical Gifts for Teens

by Blogger on ‎12-02-2013 08:35 AM - last edited on ‎12-06-2013 12:23 PM by Editor in Chief

fender.jpgTeens are notoriously hard to shop for. While I don’t have any of my own, I do have nieces and nephews, and well, I was a teen myself at one point in time. Trends change on a daily basis, and while you think you have your teen pegged, you might be completely off the mark. So this year, why not give a gift that is sure to please – the gift of music. Whether your teen shares your love of Michael Bublé and Katy Perry, or prefers tunes that sound to you like a mixture of nails on a chalkboard and the screeching sounds of an alley cat in heat, the choice of gifts for music-loving teens is endless.

Gifts for men who love to try new things

by Blogger on ‎11-14-2013 11:46 AM - last edited on ‎11-27-2013 04:52 PM by Editor in Chief


Preview.jpgThere are some men for whom the status quo is just fine. Why on earth would you want to try a new restaurant when you know exactly what to expect from a fast food joint? Why bike to work when you could be sitting in the comfort of your car instead? And why would you have a pumpkin spice latte instead of the usual morning coffee? Seriously, polluting espresso with the flavour of mashed up squash? It defies logic. Those guys are easy to shop for. Just look at what they’re using right now and buy a new one —maybe in a slightly different colour if you’re feeling brave. For those who think different, you sometimes need to go outside the box when it comes to gifts. Ramp up the portable sound by replacing the standard ear buds with some Dr. Dre cans, or ditch the dumb thermostat that’s been on the living room wall for decades in favour of a smart Nest Learning Thermostat. Guys who love to try new things will eat this sort of stuff up. We’ve got a few ideas if one of these rebels is on your gift list this year.

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Review - The world ain't saving itself!

Joe team being framed for crimes they did not commit, the President of the United States had no choice but to terminate the team.  The problem is, there's no stopping the team as they try to figure out who really is in charge and who framed them. 

 

When I first heard about G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I figured I was going to wait for the DVD release, but let's be serious now, when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was announced, that basically reserved my seat at the theatres and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed.
