Lucid Dreaming

A few weeks ago I found an article on what is known as “Lucid Dreaming”. For those of you who have never heard of it, this term is used for a dream in which you are 1. aware you are in a dream, and 2. you can guide/manipulate/control the dream. There have been times in the past where I have been able to have lucid dreams, where I was in control of it for a very short time, and I use the term control loosely. By this I mean the only part of the dream I can remember was riding a motor bike which then turned into a broken Mary-Go-Round Pony… So although control is possible, I obviously don’t have the concentration factor (Could be linked to my lack of attention span).…

Bixi is the way to go…

bixyToday I took my first Bixi ride, talk about a workout. Took about 20 minutes or so to get home, but that’s only because I had to stop half way. Seems the first Bixi bike I “signed out” had a flat tire, why the last rider didn’t flag the bike as damaged I have no clue, but I made sure I flagged it after walking 2 blocks to nearest Bixi station. walking 2 blocks to nearest Bixi station.

Now if you wanna “Bixi” (short for “BIcycle TaXI“) I would not recommend using your credit card at the Bike Rack, if you do make sure you have an extra $250 as they will put that amount on hold as a deposit in case you decide not to return the bike.…

Educational Youtube Channels worth visiting (and some not so educational)

In my spare time I love to browse Youtube, but unlike most of the world which is more interested in “i can has cheezburger” and Epic fail videos, I prefer educational videos. Here is a small list of channels I like to frequent along with a few sample videos to give you a taste:

First up is C. G. P. Grey which explains a lot of strange geographical/governmental grey areas and tries to limit some confusion. Here is their most recent upload (as of the date of this post)

Next up, another highly educational channel called Minute Physics which as you guessed it, teaches you all about physics in a short period (most videos are under 5 minutes).…

Hola! Watch Netflix USA from anywhere in the world! FREE!

After being a Netflix subscriber for a month and a bit now, I am very disappointed at how limited our selection is here in Canada, half the good movies are unavailable.

I have heard of other people using proxies and VPNs to fool the servers into thinking you have a States-Side IP address, but these in my experience can be limited. The ones I have found are either really slow, have low bandwidth, or cost quite a bit to have speed and bandwidth.

During my most recent search I happened across a site called Hola (Spanish for Hello?) which adds a plugin to Chrome or Firefox or you can directly install their app on Windows, Mac OS, and Android (sorry Blackberry Users, your left out, again).…

The Best and the Worst new games on Facebook

Matthew 1 Comment

Over the last little while it seems the games on Facebook games are getting more high tech, and by that I mean 3D Shooters, MMORPGs and Strategies. It’s almost like having an installed game right through your browser. Having peaked my interest, I figured I would make a quick post about it.

1. Offensive Combat

Monday I came across my top pick, a game called Offensive Combat, a 3D Shooter game (Also in the F2P or Free to Play Genre where if you want upgrades you can buy coin for real money) which I have to say is the most enjoyable Facebook game I have ever played.…

Considered Normal? gets its own mobile app

Matthew 0 Comments

Considered Normal? has finally got its own app. 2 actually. The first one (downloaded by scanning the QR Code to the left) was created with Conduit’s Mobile App builder and by far looks the best of all wysiwyg (read “what you see is what you get”) creators out there. Its makes versions available for iOS (iPhones), Android, and Windows Mobile. However the downside to the app is the free account only allows 25 installs, which is very limited. The interface for the app builder is very robust offering several plugins and options, the one I used was the RSS feed reader which allows me to stream my blog tot he app along with push notifications.…

Go Long (!) CD Release.

Matthew 0 Comments

I have the extreme pleasure of writing this blog post directly from the CD Release Party for Go Long (!).  Its been an amazing journey for the band to come this far in so short of time. In one interview they stated they were not really planning on doing a release just yet, but the demand from their fans drove them to do think twice about waiting.

I personally have been following Dani’s career for quite a few years now and I feel extremely honored to have the privilege watching these up and coming musicians come so far.

They opened with the tune of their recent video release “Hurricane” followed by “Overwhelmed” then into there rendition of Alana Miles’ “Black Velvet”.…

Go Long (!) New Video

Matthew 0 Comments

In July I posted about my favourite local band (to my home town of Ottawa), Go Long (!). I have been following the beautiful voice of Danielle Allard (Lead Singer of Go Long(!)) for quite a few years and I am extremely impressed with how far she has come since the days of Far From the Trees (The first band I saw Dani sing in). With the CD Release less than a month away I was excited to hear that they released an new video from their soon to be released album.

Having followed Dani and Lucas since they join together and more recently following the trio (Dani, Lucas and Nicolas) and of course being their web master, I have had the privileged of listening to their wonderful style of music.…

UPS Airline Gripe responses

Matthew 0 Comments

Working for the UPS Store definitely has some major ups when it comes to funny stuff. Each week we get a Weekend update from the higher-ups and this week I could not stop laughing. Read the excerpt below:

UPS Airline

Remember, it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a
high school diploma to fix one; a reassurance for those of us
who fly routinely in our jobs.

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a ‘gripe
sheet,’ which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.
The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on
the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the
next flight.
