|It's been an interesting few years|
| 3 years ago I took on a new identity, as a father! Along with a global pandemic, it's been an interesting run to say the least. |
In the original Improv spirit of this website, I started making silly educational videos for kids
I've also started writing a weekly activity newsletter awesome dad and kid activities in it.
It's been a looooong time since there were any new posts on this website. I'm kicking the tires here I guess to see if it still works (haha, there were a bunch of bugs I had to fix to get this post out).

|Mainly How Gay It Is|
| Those of you who used to hang around the Stanley palace back in the heady days of McGill Improv might remember this awesome clip from the Daily Show. I particularly like Jon Stewart's early Noughties hair.|
| I'm not sure if you have to be a member of Blogger to view this but recently they launched Blogger Play ( http://play.blogger.com )|
Basically it's a random slide show of countless of photos that are posted on public blogs within the Blogger Community.
It's really cool to check out.
|Grizzly battle of wits|
Which of these planes crashed moments after this picture was taken? (Let's pretend the pilot was ok.)
|How to get discounts on the internet|
| If you're ever buying something on the internet and you see a Coupon Code or similar field on the checkout page, take a moment to look around for a coupon that you can use.|
RetailMeNot.com is one site that is dedicated to collecting coupon codes. I searched it for godaddy.com and got 10% off a couple of domains using digg as the code. Nice.
Google is another option, running a search for XYZ coupon can turn up results that Retail Me Not doesn't have. I just checked and it works for Sillysoft.
|It's comin' up, it's comin' up, it's there|
| Without Annette has two shows comin' up in the next two weeks. You can see us challenge Team Danson at Theatre Ste-Catherine this friday @ 11 for $1000000 and you can see us rock the house at the Comedy Nest on Nov. 10th @10:30. It's insane!|
|HOWTO make your own devil sticks|
| This article describes the simple process of how to make your own Devil Sticks. The only materials you need are wood dowels and hockey tape, and it should take well under an hour.|
|HOWTO make your own board game|
| Here's the story of how independent board game designer Peter Morrison conceived, developed and self-published his own strategic board game VIKTORY (and now its sequel VIKTORY II). Pretty cool tale I think. I found out about this when Peter emailed me asking if I wanted to become an affiliate and help market VIKTORY II. After reading more about the game I said yes. The game mechanic is pretty unique, and has some lovely consequences.|
Anyone who has played a lot of Risk (or Lux) will understand that getting into big battles near the start of the game is a sure-fire way to lose. The other players not fighting will grow stronger and eventually eat you for your cards. VIKTORY's mechanic is totally different, with players who attack (early and/or often) being at an advantage. The worst-case scenario of attacking is that your units get sent back to your towns at the end of your turn (rather then being completely removed from the board like in Risk). The consequence seems to be a fast-paced attack-full strategy board game.
Of course, this is just from reading about the game (and watching a video). I want to get myself a copy and try it out for real. If you feel the same then you could use this link and I'll get a little cut of the sale for my marketing efforts ;-).
