The Superbowls ads the Canadian Government does not want you to see

For those living in Canada, it was impossible to see the real Superbowl ads. Because of the importance of protecting “Canadian” culture, whatever that means, the CRTC allows and encourage the Canadian broadcaster to put their own ads in place of the now legendary American ads, even if you look at the American channel.

Thank God for the internet! You can find all the Superbowl ads at

My favourites are the Fed Ex ad and the Bud light ad with the fantasies of Cedric the Entertainer.

Have fun.

Call me Holmes.

Just finished Agatha Christie’s Crooked Little House. A pretty good and straight forward detective novel (crimi like the German say).

I was able to find you did it! A first for me! It’s strange, when you close the book you got a strange feeling of satisfaction and of a job well done. I was never a fan of detective novels, my mom has read all the Christie’s novels but it did not pass to me. However, it was a nice change of pace from the sci-fi or techno-thrillers that I usually read in the train. I manage to get a hand on some other Christie’s novels when I’ll get bored of cheap sci-fi again I’ll know what to do.
