Hopefully everyone is enjoying the Christmas break and that those ten festive songs I suggested for your parties were a hit. I’m back again with ten tracks to play on New Year’s Eve. Play these songs at that rager you are attending or in the bomb shelter you built after it looked like things in 2016 couldn’t get worse after about May but then did because…2016.

Christmas, Christmas time is here! Time for joy and time for cheer! “We” as a collective have not been very good this year as there is a lot of turmoil and uncertainty clouding over 2016 but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to put our best face forward and try to enjoy the holiday season and do our best to welcome 2017 with open arms (and with our baseball bat named Hot Sauce very close by in case the new year tries to F with us like this year did). I don’t have a lot going on this year in terms of holiday celebrations but there are a couple. I have had a pretty crappy year and part of me…

Last month, I told you about the 2016 Mac & Cheese showdown that was happening in restaurants throughout the city. It was being put off by Five Brothers Artisan Cheese and they partnered with Newfoundland Seasonings, the Restaurant Association of Newfoundland & Labrador (RANL) and Sysco. Like my articles detailing the 2016 St. John’s Poutine Challenge, I planned a series where in one article I would put on my journalist snapback and inform the readers of Tint of Ink about the challenge and interview Adam from Five Brothers. The second article detailed the poutines I tried. I attempted to do the same thing for this challenge but unfortunately, I didn’t get out to as many restaurants as I would have…

Mo Money Mo Mustaches: Movember Is Upon Us

I don’t know what they want from me, it’s like the more money we come across; the more problems we see. Yes. I just managed to work the hook of “Mo Money Mo Problems” by The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Puff Daddy and Mase (and Kelly Price), one of the first rap songs I ever liked into an article; a literary achievement for me if there ever was one. Truthfully I’m not sure I’m in agreeance with Biggie as I believe that money does indeed buy happiness but at this time of the year I do know what they want from me; “they” being The Movember Foundation, and it does seem like the more money they raise each year the more…

Why I Wear a Poppy or “Remember, Remember The Eleventh of November”

It’s time to put away the Halloween costumes but for the love of God DO NOT, I repeat… DO NOT start celebrating the Christmas season just yet. There is a very important day in between these two events, Remembrance Day. Before you put up the tree, go and pick up a poppy and wear it with pride. I make a habit of picking up mine as soon as I see them available because some two weeks (give or take) out of the year is not nearly long enough to show your appreciation for men and women who died for us so we might be able to celebrate the holiday season earlier and earlier and not have to sing “O Christmas…
