If you thought Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was the end of pop culture’s obsession with vampires, then allow us to enlighten you. From Nosferatu to Buffy, it seems like bloodsuckers are not only immune to mortal death, but also losing cool factor, regardless of the era. 2014 is shaping up to be no different, with plenty of new movies and TV series with a lot of vampire bite. Here are our top picks to sink your fangs into. Continue reading
Non-Stop is another ridiculous, entertaining addition to the Liam Neeson action hero phase. Its plot is ludicrous. Liam Neeson plays a Federal Air Marshal on a trans-Atlantic flight, where a mysterious villain appears on his messaging network threatening to kill one passenger every 20 minutes until he’s paid $150 million. Neeson goes about trying to uncover the villain, who he believes to be a passenger onboard the plane, and the situation deteriorates into frequent bathroom brawls, bomb scares, and zero gravity gunfights.

This Thursday March 13th will see Cameco’s Dress For Success Ensemble Event take flight at the Kreos Aviation Hanger in Saskatoon.

If you love a park and slope lifestyle, Burton knows what you need. They’ve been around since 1977 bringing you boards, gear, teams, and style and that’s a long history of delivery. Sometimes I think I know it all, but that’s actually longer than I’ve been alive! Spring 2014 is no exception for Burton hitting the mark so I thought to run you through a few new colourways from this trusted and true brand that you’ll find now on Spareparts’ Premium Bag Wall.
I’m especially proud to showcase a friend of mine from my home-sweet-home of Regina on The Rooster this month. Kristen Leigh is a Biology student at the University of Regina and the entreprenista behind Soulful Sandwiches. It’s a fitting name for a not-for-profit business steered by a woman with no shortage of soul and selflessness. Continue reading
Ohhh wow. Sled Island lineup dropped yesterday afternoon and it’s so choice! The festival took a beating last year with whole Calgary flood thing happening night one of the fest, leading to a cancellation of the rest of the festival (and some really unique unplanned jam sessions and house concerts). Unfortunately that was a big blow to festival organizers and a lot of lost money. Continue reading
This evening while cooking dinner I got thinking about the beverage choices we make to pair with our food. Wings and beer, wine and cheese, pizza and coke. Personally I was craving a glass of wine to go with my meal. Now what wine pairs with meatloaf? The answer I invariably came to was the correct one … box. Continue reading
Enter March, and we’ve got some good rap to start the month off right. Young Braised of Vancouver’s wavy rap fame, may make an appearance Friday night at Amigos.

I’m hyped. We also got some new videos. Tune in! Continue reading
