Coaches Corner Presents: Last Take #1 – The Leafs, Journalistic Integrity, and Coaches’ Origin Story

Wow. It’s sure been awhile, hasn’t it? Since May? 4 Months? If I owed any of you anything, I’d give you an explanation. Well, frankly, it’s just been a very busy summer for me. I moonlighted as an NBA journalist, wrote most of a novel, and had a whirlwind vacation to my favourite city in […]

A Bold Re-Gifting – The Pope Just Gave Donald Trump A Copy Of Undertale

If anything, 2016 will go down in history as the year that shit just plain stopped making sense. About a year ago, for some reason that I have not been able to determine despite hours of research, his holiness The Pope invited a bunch of youtubers to the goddamn Vatican. This was generally regarded as […]

The Horrifying Way Fake News Makes Your Brain Work

Virtual Reality: The Real Femme Fatale

Sexbots.

An idea that’s been stirring in the minds of every unsatisfied man since the dawn of time. Yes, since the dawn of time. Do you really think Chief Sharpstone didn’t get tired of his wife sometimes?

This is what will happen with Uber

In case you’ve been living under a rock, or just in general, don’t give a hoot(suite) about Silicon Valley news – Uber’s in a lot of trouble. Financially? No, not really. Other than a few open letters from its investors (who haven’t withdrawn their funding) and some apologetic nonsense from CEO, Travis Kalanik – Uber’s withstood the past few weeks of “SHOCKING” news.

I respond with a curt, Tell you…what? “You always say crazy shit.. what do you think about virtual reality? Just a gimmick or maybe something more?” A reply that proves my anxiety driven suspicion.
