Fire up the popcorn, dip those choc-tops and fill up that large frozen Coke – 2018 is shaping up to be a banner year for cinema. We’ve already marked several dates on our calendar for the most anticipated films, which include charming animated adventures, empowering heist flicks, superhero blockbusters and irreverent alternative history comedies. We’re already imagining ourselves ensconced in the shrouded cinema with snacks in hand and oh-so-ready to be transported away. more

The Weekend Series: five summer essentials to upgrade your camping to glamping

Camping certainly isn’t for everyone – when you’re an adult, hanging out in a sweaty plastic dome with no electricity or hot water kind of loses its appeal. Sure, the scenery is nice, but at what cost? Our base level of comfort? No thank you sir. The simple solution here is to level up – we’re talking glamping. Much like its inferior sibling, glamping is all about appreciating your natural surroundings but with the added benefit of being able to actually sleep at night because you’re not rolling around on a half-deflated air mattress marinating in a week’s worth of your own filth. We’ve searched for five key items that will turn your next camping trip into a glamping extravaganza. more

The Weekend Series: Bitcoin, blockchain and bamboozlement – making sense of cryptocurrency

You’ve heard the buzz, read about it online and seen its logos pop up at shops and eateries, but what do you really know about Bitcoin? If you are like us, you are as clueless as a camel at the North Pole. Cryptocurrency has been increasing in prominence since being invented in 2009, but to us laypeople it hasn’t exactly become easier to understand. That being said, quite a few people are making a big deal out of this new technology, so we decided it would be a good idea to figure out what the heck it’s all about and see if we can break it down in a handy, easy-to-digest format. more
