All in all a good time giving us the resources to expand our shelf count in the next week!  More space for all of our favourite titles!  There is much joy to be had by all.   But as I’ve wrapped up a bunch of our excursions and events, I now have...

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new week of great pop culture. We’re feeling a little dozy from this weekend, which not only saw us attend the Pop Culture Fest, but saw us host two great events - our Introverts Reading Night, and Seen and Heard in Edmonton’s great monthly Podcast Meet-Up.

As always, if you see something you like, let us know! We’ve even updated this...

So full disclosure: it's my birthday. I am old. Tonight I am looking forward to enjoying the company of some of the fantastic people that I am lucky to know and enjoying some delicious food and drink. But before then I thought I'd drop a quick column featuring a bunch of great pop culture offerings that I was fortunate to delve into lately. And then I will go get free birthday pancakes. With that plan in mind: let's go!
