Browsing the daily reads this morning I found the following:

“Damn, Zuma is freakin’ addictive. And now, Apple lets you buy it for your iPod. I’m not getting out of iTunes alive.” [todmaffinblog]

When it’s super slow, when you’re eating lunch at your desk or just to waste company time it seems that Pop Cap Games are the most popular around here (my fave being Bookworm everything else just gets me too excited). Of course you didn’t hear that from me and you don’t know where I work so there’s no chance of me being Dooced.

The Oilers are in town tonight as well as Alanah, our Crazy Canucks Podcast cohort from Vancouver Canucks Op Ed.

The Oilers are without Hemsky, Moreau and now Ryan Smyth. A depleted offense which might just make them beatable. Here’s hoping. Beating Edmonton is just good times.

Property of Nik KowsarI’ve been informed that my pal Nik in the Toronto office (as previously blogged about here) has a new photo blog.

This is in addition to go along with his million-and-one other blogs [bloggerprofile][ACECprofile], which vary from very personal to informative, in several different languages. Nik’s story is pretty fascinating, you can read all about him in the CBC feature and in various other articles and interviews around the world. He’s had works published in the NY Times, MSNBC, The Gaurdian, and the Washington Post (just to name a few). Oh yes, and earlier this year Nik was even sentenced to imprisonment in Iran [comicnews], though he currently resides in Toronto.

Nik’s story is definitely moving, and after all of this persecution and perseverance, he’s got the best sense of humour. I especially like the cartoon of another co-worker of ours, Lucas.

Lastly, our Metroblogging 7 Gifts in 7 Days is over but we’ve got a few more ideas kicking around that we’re going to run with.

For the past seven days, the Metroblogging sites around the globe have been unveiling seven gifts their cities can share with the world – one gift a day for seven days. Vancouver’s musicians make for one of the gifts that didn’t quite make the cut.

If you have any suggestions, people, place, thing, food, etc. drop by Metroblogging and suggest a story.
