Wow, this place is dead. My bad.

In case there’s anyone who still visits this site wondering where I went, I’ve pivoted to video. I’m still out here creating content, only now it’s on YouTube in a more digestible format featuring royalty-free background music.

To start, I made some videos of Forza Horizon 4, but no one seemed all that interested in my ability to tune and race cars in that game’s weekly challenges.

From there I pivoted back to more familiar territory – talking hockey in a series I’m calling “Ice Takes” – and the response has been… well some people are watching them, which is more than I can say for my video game stuff.

The first video in the series is about Alex Ovechkin’s chances of passing Wayne Gretzky and setting a new record for career goals.

I published my second video in the series on the weekend. This one examines the circumstances around Seattle’s expansion bid, and the role that Vegas Golden Knights’ instant success played in convincing Seattle’s ownership group to pay an inflated expansion fee of $650 million.

It’s not doing as well as the Ovi/Gretzky video. I wonder why…

Anyway, I have plenty more videos planned. Don’t forget to like and subscribe!

Welcome to High Parkdale

Today marks the release of the first of what I hope will be many journeys into the world of High Parkdale. This animated series has been in one stage of development or another for the better part of a decade, and it’s thrilling to finally have something to show for all those times people looked at me funny when I told them some friends and I were making a cartoon.

“Vintage Yard Sale” is a short scene with a limited scope and some rough edges, but it works as an introduction to these characters and their world. From the YouTube description:

Harry, Hamza, Elmore and Benny try to raise money by having a yard sale in their gentrified neighbourhood. Harry takes issue with the sale’s location and insists on using the proceeds for something responsible, but Hamza has his mind set on swindling neighbourhood newcomers out of enough money to purchase some brand-name accessories.
