The Top 5 Spookiest Cars

Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year. The leaves have turned, if we’re lucky, it hasn’t snowed, and the weather is the perfect excuse to stay inside and watch scary movies. It’s one night of the year people get to dress up in whatever costume they’d like, and let loose. We get to see our favorite characters from pop culture, or lore, or whatever you can come up with, brought to life.

3 Things to do This Long Weekend in Edmonton

533 × 400

November 11th is an important day for Canadians. It`s a day we use specifically to honor our veterans and those who have fought for our freedoms, freedoms that we often take for granted today. This kind of freedom wasn`t always so easy and it`s taken a century of fighting to get where we are. Remembrance Day is a day we take to reflect and honor it. Which is why it`s a national holiday and has been for nearly a hundred years. This year`s Remembrance Day happens to fall on a Friday, which means that…

6 Reasons why August is a Great Time to Buy a Car

640 × 400

We’re entering the dog days of summer, which in Edmonton is a tragic time. It’s almost back to school time for kids, and for many other none school goers, it means a time when the weather cools and the fun stops. Even the summer movie season is starting to cool off, which means we’re in that weird spot after the summer blockbusters and before the fall Oscar bait stuff. As much as the fall season means the return of sports (mostly hockey), it does feel like each summer is just a tease of what summer actually should…

Top 5 life hacks for driving around Edmonton

Driving is easily one of the most stressful parts of our daily lives and driving in Edmonton isn’t exactly a breeze. But sadly, due to our incredibly well designed transit system (sarcasm), there’s not really that many alternatives to get around this fair city. Unless you bike but even then you only really get to do that for like five months out of the year and do you really want to be one of those people? (Sorry cyclists)

But driving in Edmonton doesn’t have to be awful. There are ways that help mitigated the terribleness that is…

July Wrap-up

751 × 500

Holy Moly is the summer ever moving fast. Last time I checked it wasn’t even mid-June, and then I blinked and we’re already celebrating Harry Potter’s birthday (July 31st) with a brand new bit of HP content (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child). But here we are, we’re already half way through Edmonton’s favorite season. July is a big month for Edmontonians, besides the fact that it’s usually the only month we get with decent weather, it’s a month jam packed with things to do.

Bad drivers, what annoys you?

Bad drivers, what annoys you?

We all have things we hate about driving and specifically about other drivers. We see things every day or our morning and afternoon commutes that straight up boil our blood and by boil our blood I mean send us into a hateful rage that leaves you cursing and yelling and pounding your fist until its bloody and raw.

Okay… that last part may have been a slight exaggeration (but only slightly), but that doesn’t mean that driving around is easy. Just imagine you’re driving around Edmonton in your 2016 Honda Civic, and bam…

Top 5 automotive podcasts to listen to on your drive to work

710 × 400

But for those of you like me who prefer the sound of people on your driver’s here are the top 5 automotive podcasts to listen to on your drive to work

Thankfully, we live in a world that is unrestrained, a world of freedom, and a world of choice. I’m of course talking solely about our choices of audio content we listen to on in our daily lives. Sure the radio is fine, Crash & Mars from 102.3 Now radio are hilarious, but it’s only a small portion of what your options are. The inclusion of the…

530 × 400

Pretty much everyone around the globe is talking about it. It’s the talk of the office, it’s the talk of most offices, school yards, restaurants, pretty much anywhere where young people go to gather.

West Edmonton Mall is overrun with people walking blindly with their faces glued to their phones with no real regard of their surroundings. You’ve even had people playing while driving. Could you imagine riding down Jasper Ave in your 2016 Honda Civic scanning around for a Drowzee? Seems highly dangerous.

With that, here’s a list of the top 5 Worst Pokemon to…
