Went to see John Mayer Trio at Koolhaus last night, and had an awesome time. He didn’t play anything from his albums except for 2 songs…the rest were bluesy stuff and covers. It’s risky move, departing from his pop roots and potentially alienating his fans, but I think it’s a good move. He did perform […]
I’ve been a vegetarian for over 15 years now. However, I don’t think I know a single vegetarian in Toronto. Whenever I suggest trying out a vegetarian restaurant to my friends, they immediately dismiss the idea as blasphemy. It’s quite frustrating. Until now, I’ve never thought of actively seeking out other vegetarians. After snooping around […]
2046 was showing at the Varsity, so I took the opportunity to see it in the theatres again. I saw it when it first came out last year in HK, and I think it’s even better the second time around. I can relate to it even more after a year’s worth of experience. I knew […]
I saw Alfie recently. It starts out so great — funny and insightful. Then it gets a bit too insightful. I think it hits home a bit too hard for me. The reviews on it are pretty widely polarized; probably because the ones who hated it can’t relate. It makes me wonder what the 1966 […]
Today is a great day. For the longest time, derricklee.com pointed to a profile of serial killer Derrick Todd Lee. Today, I own it! Adding this to my stable of domains (derricklee.ca and derrick-lee.com) makes me the most important Derrick Lee in this world. HAHAHAHAHA!

I went to my friend’s wedding earlier this year…it was a traditional Chinese reception that was being filmed for the Food Network. It aired for the first time a couple weeks ago, and even though I was only in there for a split second or two, I’ve been recognized by 4 people I know! Without […]
I’m home after going from Toronto to LA to Vancouver to LA and back, all in one week. It’s pretty exhausting being on planes and airports so much. I did have a great trip though. I got to see my sister, dad and got to see some new sites including going wine tasting in the […]
Well here we go, welcome to the world of blogs! This is my first post. I know I’m supposed to rant on something, but there’s nothing to rant about for the moment. So I’d just like to go on record as saying that life is good, for now.
