Dan Yates Is Awesome
My pal Dan Yates is awesome. He had a nightmare show in Saskatoon last night, which I learned about through text messages where he gave live updates on the bumper car ride of racist nonsense he had to endure. He wrote about the experience on his blog and handled his business like Gotham City Marc Maron. I’m a big fan of his work. (Note: Even though the way I’m writing about Yates...
Torontote Bag Lives

As a fan of Christi and wrestling, this gets an automatic repost. christiolson: Every Monday at 8 o’clock, my otherwise wonderful boyfriend participates in a WWE live blog with our friends Joel and Yates. I didn’t understand wrestling back in the 90s when my sister watched it, and I sure as hell don’t understand it now. It’s not that I haven’t tried! When we all…
Food And Me Eating It
Today, I attended a vegan bake off. Vegan bake offs (as well as Raw Food Fuck n’ Suck Battles To The Death) aren’t really my thing. Not because I have any ill will towards vegans (I don’t), but because that kind of get-together just exposes how fucked up my palate is. I eat a diet of candy, malt liquor, meat products and things made out of 58% salt. At a vegan bake off,...
Two People That Fucking Get It, Man
Drew Magary is a hero of mine for a variety of reasons. This piece in his most recent mailbag, sent me into a full on powerswoon. Take it away, copy n’ paste. William: I am convinced the pretzel people have some dirt on the party mix people. How are pretzels still in party mix? They suck and are always the last thing finished. I usually end up throwing away a bag of pretzels once...
SNEAK PEEK AT THE NEW DELOCATED OPENING SEQUENCE
I’ve never french kissed God, but I bet it’s still not as good an experience as watching new Delocated episodes. delocatedblog: Go here to enjoy some ridiculousness: http://youtu.be/4pu-ZEinTBw
On social media (the wave of the future today!), I made a pissy comment about my displeasure with the quality of 7-Eleven’s Slurpees in Toronto. To be specific, I said: Dan MacRae@danmacrae Hi @7ElevenCanada Is there a reason why all Slurpees in the GTA taste like polio? Is this a regional thing or just several bad locations? 2:18 PM - 8 Jan 12 via web · Embed this...
Nikki Payne - 2:42 I have now seen this and my life is so much richer for it.
An Excerpt From My Upcoming Bestseller "Xlybok:...
Chapter 17 The More The Cybergame Changes, The More It Stays The Cybersame As they walked through the streets of Super Detroit, President Johnny Xlybok could sense that his Secret Service Agent was feeling uneasy. “What’s wrong Baptiste? Don’t you trust your President?” “It’s not you I don’t trust, sir. It’s this crazy mixed up world I...
Guided By Gordon: A Ramble About My History Of...
Hello City. I’m going to be continuing my self-indulgent ramble about my unimpressive (and surprisingly light on ska) history of musical taste. It’s going to be an avalanche of text and Primitive Radio Gods inspired dick jokes, so there’s no shame in passing this by to look at new and exciting developments in the world of streaming pornography. That said, I recommend all my internet pals (Tumblr...

Lovable comic/writer/bon vivant Dan Yates has revealed his musical history secrets and it makes for some excellent reading. There’s talk of influential cousins, Columbia House and the corrupting influence of pro wrestling. Point your computer surfboard in that direction, post-haste.
