The war of the operating system (OS) has existed since the early days of the OS. It’s not about which OS is the best, but rather which OS suits you best.

Venus in Fur, currently playing at the Belfry Theatre, is an intimate play about the provocative power relationship between an auditioning actress and a director; in other words, this isn’t a play you would want to bring children to.

I’ve been to Cenote a handful of times and I will go again; maybe not this month, or next month, but sometime in the future. Would I recommend it to tourists or friends? Definitely not. Several bars and restaurants of similar status in Victoria are much better. The night I went Cenote, a few musicians […]
