    It was October 30, 2013, and I was sitting on a plane heading to Boston.  I should have been sitting in an uncomfortably small desk heading to my demise by way of a calculus quiz, but I had narrowly managed to convince my Macedonian professor to excuse my absence.  I told her that I...

    The Round Bus

    The Super Bowl is upon us and Sochi is around the corner. If there are two lessons to learn from these colossal events, it’s that people, actual people, don’t matter. What matters is the money you spend on the gear the sponsors are rolling out. So in lieu of having an actual person join...

    Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers, writers, and contributors! Thanks for your football, your silver medals in hockey, and Miley Cyrus! But, as you linger through your turkey hangovers, we’re left wondering: When did Canada appropriate the sad tradition of Black Friday? What the motherfuck? And why’s it called Black Friday? And why do...

    I don’t really care about baseball. I feel like, and I’ve thought about this a lot, hockey is indisputably a superior sport to the other big North American sports. I’m willing to allow that soccer is probably on par with hockey somewhat, and I don’t know enough about rugby (or cricket, although I’m pretty...

    The Round Bus

    Well. Winter is coming. The patios are closing. The winter gear is being de-mothballed. Senators are being prosecuted, or, whatever the do to the evil members of the Red Chamber. Is Halloween still a thing? Is that going to happen? How will we tell the hipsters from the charitable? Is Movember still a thing?...

    The Round Bus

    Well, the NHL season is here, and no one has died yet. George Parros tried to eat the ice with his face, and fighting still arouses the collective masochism in NHL arenas. Gary Bettman got booed in Phoenix, because apparently they just refuse to follow even their own franchise’s narrative. Calgary is still in...

    The Round Bus

    For the first time in my social media life, I believe I saw a man killed on Twitter this week. David Gilmour dominated the litersphere and twittersphere, and for good reason. But more on that later… In CanLit news that matters to us, the Barn would like to extend a hearty congrats to Barn...
