Kyle Kinane | Comedy Central

Kyle Kinane’s newest special I Liked His Old Stuff Better features bits about burning his laundry, hitting pistachios with the back of his cell phone while driving, and the embarrassment inherent in your mother being impressed with you for actually owning plates. He would rather talk about Bigfoot than comedy, though. But, he was kind enough to discuss his perspective on it and his career, as well as the time he threw up while broadcasting on a popular cable network, with ION writer Kellen Powell.

The HTML500

Coding isn't just for hackers and geeks. Coding is for everyone. And we mean everyone. Last weekend we attended The HTML500, Canada's largest free, learn-how-to-code event by Lighthouse Labs, and we were amazed not only by the packed house of 500 participants (with over 2000 hopefuls on a waitlist), but by the diversity. Ages ranged from 11-65, from all different backgrounds, and with 60% of attendees being women. It was impressive and inspiring.

Encyclopedia Hearsay | The Beatles

The Encyclopedia Hearsay was founded on four principles: misinformation, rumours, half-remembered conversations, and outright lies.

If you are citing The Land Before Time as a source, or abusing footnotes like David Foster Wallace, you are on the right track.

The Definitive CanCon List

The funny thing as a Canadian expatriate living in the United States is that you quickly discover that you’re 30-40% out of touch with American contemporary culture. That CanCon quota you so poisonously made fun of over Labatt products at your city’s local tavern before you emigrated has a way of burrowing into your brain; either shaping your youth as you’re mesmerized by the Log Driver’s Waltz, or getting your first weird erection to Heather Conkie. Such is the case for Brooklyn by-way-of Toronto’s Her Habits, AKA Joanie Wolkoff.
