The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 69,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Chris Temelkos - June 7, 2010 - The Walrus

By Chris Temelkos

The Walrus is a unique Canadian magazine that delivers readers with an eclectic mix of well-written pieces. The vast Canadian content suits the Canadian reader’s curiosity regarding issues and interest pieces pertaining to Canada and the Canadian perspective.

The May 2010 issue of The Walrus offers a variety of interesting pieces, a couple that stood out to me, including a piece detailing Canadian rapper, Drake’s rise to fame and an article examining Asperger’s Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder. The Walrus provides a mix of current affairs and arts and culture, both providing an in-depth, thought to provoke read.

The Walrus also offers a look into a variety of must-read books, something I found to be an interesting feature, especially to an avid reader who is always on the lookout to find a hidden gem. However, this is not a magazine for those who are looking for vast international content or lifestyle pieces, The Walrus sticks to its Canadian roots.

I found The Walrus to be a fairly enjoyable read that enlightened me to Canadian issues and gave me a deeper sense of what is going on in Canada. I highly recommend picking up a copy and seeing what you think of it for yourself.

As an avid magazine reader, I was impressed with what Vanity Fair had to offer. Topics ranging from the beautiful Grace Kelly cover story to the pages revealing a handful of Tiger Woods’ mistresses. Vanity Fair has a stunning layout and breathtaking photography to capture the eyes of the reader.

Whether you are interested in the economy or the latest fashion trends, Vanity Fair has something for you. What piqued my interest most is the plethora of articles and photography about the glamour days of old Hollywood. I am a big fan of Grace Kelly and thought the piece was well written and gave me a deeper insight into her life. The revealing photos and stories about Tiger Woods’ mistresses kept me intrigued and curious, it also gave me perspective into Tiger’s character.

Although the magazine can be a bit pricey, it’s well worth it. Whether you’re a man or a woman there is something for you to enjoy in Vanity Fair, with the vast variety of articles and photography, you will have trouble putting this magazine down. I know I did.

Next time you’re at a newsstand, pick up a copy of Vanity Fair, it’s sure to please the most selective of tastes.

There’s been a lot of talks lately about how many Canadian TV shows have been picked up by U.S. networks this fall. But while U.S. TV has the most Canadian content, Canadians are having a decent impact on other areas of U.S. pop culture as well.

By Rachel Muenz

Apparently, Canada doesn’t think its university students can handle long articles. Either that or it just uses language more efficiently than its U.K. counterparts.

Based on a random selection of five articles each from five Canadian online publications for students and five from publications in the U.K., Canadian articles are over 120 words shorter than those in the U.K.
