women r kinda absent from the junos this year. no female noms for album, artist, engineer or producer of the year etc.
I don’t expect recognition, but I believe there were qualified women besides myself for many categories.

Anyhow I’ll probably have to delete these tweets and there r way bigger problems on planet earth but that’s my 2 centz

Not to be confused with Princess Amidala, an explanation for the title of Toronto-based DJ Clattyshack‘s latest titled mix is:
AMYGDALA: Emotional reactions to your surroundings are fabricated within the amygdala. here, emotional memories are formed, creating your perception of a significant existence. before the cortex has time to process incoming stimuli rationally, the amygdala has already decided how you will react, and how that memory will resonate throughout your brain for the rest of your life.

Located next door to a dispensary that they’re affiliated with, Mega Ill Pizza seemed to be doing it quietly for customers and spreading the word organically… but they appear to have turned a corner and are now boldly marketing “weed pizza”. They claim to be the first pizzeria in North America to offer this bizarre (yet brilliant) product.
Each pizza contains 250mg of infused oil and while we’re not exactly sure what that means, according to the company “This single dose pizza put buddy on his ass from 12:45-8:30pm”.
But how am I meant to get the munchies when we’re already full!? Life’s little problems!
