Just a heads up for those of you looking to pick up some decent older games at a greatly reduced price. Blockbuster has slashed the prices on all new retail games priced $29.99 and under by half. Considering Greatest Hits titles, many DS games, and most older stock usually retail for under 30 bucks, this is a pretty fantastic deal. No word on an end date for this promotion, so get down there soon!
I know that’s not a shoppng deal and I promise I won’t deviate away from the subject of my blog that much again.. but I had to post this since I find it very
weird shocking! Anna Nicole Smith is dead! I read about this on the culture kills blog. Here is what Matthew wrote on his blog:
If I was reading a book where in 3 chapters, the protagonist wins a Supreme Court case, had a baby and lost an adult child at the same time, married their lawyer, got involved in a paternity controversy over that very same newborn child, gets sued by a user of a product she endorsed then collapse and die that very same day, I would say that such a plotline would stretch credibility.
Truth is stranger than fiction I guess. Nothing more I can say really.

When you consider that an entire plate of broccoli contains the same number of Calories as a small spoonful of peanut butter, you might think twice the next time you decide what to eat. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average adult needs to consume about 2000 – 2500 Calories to maintain their weight. In other words, you have a fixed amount of Calories to “spend” each day; based on these pictures, which would you eat?
When I was growing up in St. Catharines we had not one, not two, but four movie theaters to pick from. An awful lot for a city our size, but we made good use of them. As time passed and small theaters gave way to 8 screen multiplexes, that original number eventually shrunk down to two. But still, they were our two. We had a Famous Players Silvercity in the south end of town (now an Empire Cinemas) and a Cineplex Odeon in the north. Both theaters were the anchors of our local malls, the Pen Centre and the Fairview Mall respectively. Even though I didn’t grow up with these fancy new moviehouses, I still have fond memories. Heck – I even worked at the Pen’s Silvercity all through high school. Like many in my community we felt these movie theaters were a part of our lives, even if we didn’t go as much as we should have.
As time marched on and DVD’s and HDTV’s starting bringing a better than cinemas experience to our own living rooms, home movie viewing really began to chip away at the movie theater industry. Had that been the cause of a theater’s closure — that we’d simply not been going enough, that they couldn’t afford to operate — then we’d have nobody to blame but ourselves for what happened last month in the north end of town. Unfortunately that’s not the way things happened.
In early January, the Cineplex Odeon at the St. Catharines Fairview Mall closed its doors for good — not because it wasn’t profitable, but because the company that owns the mall decided to exercise the “best use” clause in the theater’s lease, kicking them out with less than a months notice. You might be wondering why they’d do that. Well it turns out it wasn’t drugs or violence or loitering teens or any other number of reasons that one could justifiably understand. It was so they could make room to bring a Winners/HomeSense to the mall. They tried to justify it as best they could, saying that theaters just don’t bring people to a mall like they used to and that a big box store could change that. Considering the mall is already home to Future Shop, Chapters, and Zehrs, I tend to think that the Fairview is a little big boxed out.
I understand that time marches on and things change, but kicking out a cultural landmark in favor of another big box store is just downright insensitive. It goes to show that managing a mall in St. Catharines from an office in Toronto leaves you completely out of touch with the feelings of the community that you’re supposed to be marketing to. It’s bad business. I can’t speak for the whole community, but I can tell you this much – I won’t be shopping at the Fairview again any time soon.
I got an email from Cory and Deanna (who I guess are the creators of StudioTax) telling me that their certified Canadian Income tax program, StudioTax, is once again free this year. I tried StudioTax last year and I can confidently say that it’s a very neat, practical tax program. Their claim is also true, the program is totally free; they basically make money by accepting donations and by placing ads on their website.
Not a big fan of Costco myself, but if you do shop at Costco or have plans of doing so, this coupon code will help you save a few bucks:
Signup at costco.ca and use coupon code GSWEB25B. You’ll get a $25 gift certificate which means that you end up paying $30 for a 1 year Costco membership. This is for new membership only.
Just for your information, a lot of people love Costco because it offers rebates, an inexpensive restaurant, bulk quantities (=savings) and 100% customer satisfaction (you can almost refund any item anytime and they will take it back)
As many of you probably know, I’m a bit of a geek. What you probably don’t know (but won’t be surprised to hear) is that I have two dozen longboxes of comics in storage – a collection that spanned the 13 years
between my youth and the birth of my daughter. Of course, when you
have a kid, certain sacrifices have to be made – for me it was my $40 a week comic book habit. Sadly, I thought I’d never be able to enjoy a good comic book again. But it looks like Marvel has come to my rescue!
Over at marvel.com they have more than a hundred comic books available online, from modern issues of popular titles to classic comics from way back when. All you have to do to access these is register with their site (it’s free) and then visit their digital comics page. Whether you’re a comic nut who’s all grown up or a parent who wants to get their kids reading a little more, mighty Marvel’s got you covered.
