The Blog’s new look

I just finished upgrading the blog and I also changed the template. The new template has two sidebars instead of one so there’s more space for for adding other useful stuff in the sidebars 🙂

During the upgrade I lost about 10 comments from the last two days. I’m terribly sorry about that. It was purely unintentional.

Please let me know what you think of the new design and what you’d like to see in the sidebars 🙂 Forum

Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot this week. I’m very busy writing reports, posters, exams and what not. Once this week is over I’ll have plenty of time 🙂

In the meantime. the forum has a wonderful group of friendly folks, fun activities and thousands of freebies and deals. Please feel free to pop in and say hi and if you’ve been a regular “lurker” we’d love to get to know you 🙂

FJETSAM: A pop culture blog from the makers of SmartCanucks

Announcements 0 comments


Last month Boo let you all in on a little secret. I was working on relaunching my old driven blog as a brand-spankin’ new, independently-hosted, multi-user driven, cinammon scented, trans-fat free dynamo! Well the time to unveil it is finally here. So if you’ll all join me in making that drumroll noise in your head…

(insert drumroll noise here)

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, I present to you FJETSAM, the eighth wonder of the world!

When not defending our borders from virus-carrying monkeys and David Hasselhoff, FJETSAM likes long walks on the beach, sunsets, and reading/writing Ann Landers. FJETSAM is not a food stuff. Swallowing FJETSAM will harm you. FJETSAM is not recommended for pregnant women, individuals suffering from a heart condition, or the elderly. Take FJETSAM twice daily or as recommended by your doctor.

Now that that’s out of the way, let me tell you what FJETSAM is: FJETSAM is a blog presenting and confronting the best of pop and internet culture, from the most popular movies to the most obscure TV shows, from the best of the web to the worst of YouTube, FJETSAM’s got you covered.

In addition to my plug, I’d just like to take this time to give a special thanks to Boo. Boo was a big believer in my old site and offered to help with the relaunch the minute I mentioned it was on the table. He’s been absolutely indispensible, and I can’t thank him enough. And just a reminder kiddies, Boo not only helped launch the site, he’ll be contributing there too! So don’t be afraid to come on by and see some of your old SC friends — and you might even find some new bloggers you like there to!

*I will repost this message every now and then for our new visitors* Forum Extreme Makeover

Sorry the forum looks like a mess right now. I’m installing new software and adding loads of new features. Once everything is set and done the new forum will be a zillion times better than the old one. in 2007


Hello everybody

I’ve been very busy during the holidays with my family and friends, and wasn’t posting as usual, so I thought I’d update you on my plans for as we start a new year 🙂

I have a couple of exciting ideas lined up for which I’m currently working on, including new stuff for the blog, a new section (working on it with my friend) which I’ll keep a secret until it’s ready 😉 and some contests and rewards.

As for the forum, I feel guilty for my slow maintenance and updates. I spend most of my forum time cleaning up automated spam! a total waste of time! So I’ve decided to install a completely new and better forum which has way more features and better spam protection. I have some ultra-fun ideas for the forum and a huge surprise 🙂 It should be ready within a week – or two if I procrastinate 🙂

I’m also helping JimmyCanuck develop his own pop culture blog. He already chose and bought the domain name but I’ll let him reveal the name once it’s ready 🙂 Many of the enjoyable posts on are written by JimmyCanuck. His blog should be ready by March.

If you have any suggestions, ideas or complaints please let me know! I’m always looking for new ways of improving My email is [email protected]

Thank you everyone for being part of either by contributing to the forum, writing comments or even just visiting. Thank you 🙂

Merry Christmas Canada!

Merry Christmas


Sorry everyone for my sudden absence… I was extremely busy these last couple of days. I’m glad JimmyCanuck kept you entertained with his enjoyable posts. Thanks Jim!

As Jim promised, we’ll be brining you the latest deals and greatest ideas for the last few days before Christmas 🙂

Look What the Cat Dragged in… (jimmycanuck joins the SmartCanucks team!)

Hi everyone! As the latest addition to the editorial staff here at SmartCanucks I thought I should take a few moments to introduce myself. Many of you already know me and my antics – I’ve been a pretty active member in the SmartCanucks forums on and off for the past year. For those of you that aren’t familiar, let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name’s jimmycanuck, and I’m a blogoholic. 😉

I’m a father to a soon-to-be two year old daughter and a husband to a soon-to-be mother of two. I’m a student with Athabasca University and an avid gamer. But most importantly, I’m an active blogger finding himself more and more active by the day. In addition to my exciting new role here at SmartCanucks, I’m a regular contributor with the gaming blog bits bytes pixels and sprites and the primary contributor to the pop culture blog flotsam/jetsam which should be relaunching in the Spring of 2007.

I’m a busy guy, and life just keeps getting busier. I’m looking forward to becoming an active contributor here at SmartCanucks, and hopefully you’ll all come to know and love my irreverent sense of humour the seemingly random selection of topics I’ll bring to the table.

New Editor: Jawaad M.

Jawaad will write special articles every now and then giving us advice on how to save money on flights, hotels, car rentals, etc. His articles will be published on both and
