The Corner Gas Episode Guides - Revisited: The Reboot

We are all aware of the current blot on the entertainment landscape commonly known as a reboot. There is such a lack of inspiration in Hollywood and the likes that it feels like all we get fed, for better or worse, is remakes and re-imaginings of all the old classics that we loved when we were younger.

Cooking with Gas (or Electric) - Finding Nanaimo

As we know Corner Gas is a Canadian classic, so here at Fan Corner I like to bring you other great Canadian institutions that should not be missed. This week I would like to introduce the world to the Nanaimo Bar! Let's start with a little background before we get to the nuts and bolts of it...or the nuts and chocolate which would be more accurate.

Not A Lot Goin' On - Corner Gas News - October 2019

It funny where inspiration comes from. I sit here trying to think of a way to start a post and find myself staring into the sky looking to the heavens for a little nugget of gold to wake up my synapses and get the old imagination up out of its bed and doing a thousand reps before a quick jog to the gym.

Then nothing comes and so I go with the first unrelated thing that comes to mind and worry about making it relevant later

I enjoy watching the trails that airplanes leave in the sky. When I see one trail being closely followed by another I wonder if the second plane has a wife chasing her pilot husband in the one ahead because he left his lunch on the kitchen counter again. She is leaning out of the cockpit window, waving a thing wrapped in tin foil at the 747 in front of her, shouting "Steve, it's Marge!! Pull over....PULL OVER!!!"
