Kevin Garnett Loves Toronto and Super Chill Canada

From a GQ interview. Had to highlight Kevin Garnett’s remarks about Toronto, Canada and the Raptors.

What about Toronto makes it distracting?

What I love about Toronto is that there’s always something new and vibrant going on. A place might close at 2, and tomorrow it will close at 4. It’s a city of a bunch of hole-in-the-walls. There are a bunch of spots that you don’t really know of that’s here and there. I love cities like that, like Madrid is similar, where you can just find spots to eat and lounge. My first time in Toronto was my draft and it was a great experience. I’ve always considered it like home. I spent my own money to come up there to relax. I love Caribana. I always enjoyed that weekend. It’s always been fun. I’ve enjoyed Whistler. I’ve been to Calgary a couple of times. I enjoy Canada. Canada is super chill and I’m a chill guy. I like to chill.

 

The Raptors have the best record in the Eastern Conference right now. Do you believe in them this year?

I don’t know, man. I gotta see, man. DeMar [DeRozan] is having a hell of a year. I saw Kyle [Lowry] recently and pulled him aside to give him some words of advice. I know Dwane [Casey]. It’s all about believing, man. They have to believe in their own work. They’ve put a lot of work into this year, and they have to continue to believe in that work. They’re a different team, they’re playing at a different level and they just have to continue to believe in that. It’s got to start with Kyle and DeMar. Everyone else will follow.

Parents Taking Back the Netflix

Man it’s cold outside today in Toronto. As the weekend approaches, the forecast says, let’s stay in and watch something. But what? Well thankfully Netflix seems to reload the library so often now, it’s actually hard to keep up.

The other bonus for the parents is, the kids have taken a break from Netflix as they are hooked on some Ranger Rob show that airs on cable (gasp). Not to worry Netflix people, they have not forgotten about you and will be back as soon as Ranger Rob runs out of adventures.

So that frees up the Netflix for the adults.

A Netflix Year in Review – The Best & Worst of Binge-Watching

2017 in review

Happy holidays. Happy year end. Happy binge-watching.

You know what’s great about having your own blog? You can write whatever you want and rank things in the exact order you want. No group or team to please. No algorythms to follow. Just what I think.

With 2017 coming to an end, I thought it would be fun to look back at my Netflix viewing history and rank the 10 best things I watched over the past 12 months.

As a member of the Netflix Canada #StreamTeam it’s easy to get buried in kid’s programming and what I should be looking out for as a parent.

But let’s be real. Every parent needs their own time and their own shows to binge-watch when that precious amount of time becomes present. As you all know, time to watch TV can be a real battle, so Netflix has been a God Send for creating your own viewing schedule. No waiting a week for the next episode. How did parents of previous generations do it?

So, let’s stop with the formalities and get to the year in review and of course my overall Top 10 rankings.
