When we asked him what he was doing there, he claimed to be searching for the love of his life who had been kidnaped by a biolumiscent talking whale named Jericho. When we asked him to join our news crew, he surprised us by skiing effortlessly down on a pair of moleskin skis screwed together by shards of a broken whiskey bottle. He wrote three news articles before he reached the bottom of the hill, and this athleticism led to him being named Sports Assistant and Golden Spatula winner of the week.

  Spun: JuicePDF files may take a moment to load

When the first song begins on Juice’s album Hit The Ground Running, they could be any other rock band on the radio today. There’s a catchy beat on an electric guitar, Tom Hanley begins singing and you know it’s going to be fun to listen to, but it isn’t overly remarkable. However, that changes only a few seconds later. Suddenly, a heavy drum beat kicks in, a trumpet starts and what began as a typical rock album becomes half rock ’n’ roll and half big-band jazz.

  Spun: The JamiesPDF files may take a moment to load

The Jamies bring a sound like nothing else I’ve ever heard. Whether it’s the rich, soulful vocals of Jamie Gould — the band’s namesake — or the way the album seamlessly switches gears between rock-inspired guitars to electro-pop synth beats, each track brings something exciting and different. It’s hard to define them with a single genre, especially considering that every individual in the six-piece band brings something different to the table.

  Nightmare season ends for the JaysPDF files may take a moment to load

Mourning the demise of another edition of the Toronto Blue Jays is not an unfamiliar act for Canadian baseball fans. The end of September has marked the end of the season for the Blue Jays for the last 20 years. Not since their World Series victory in 1993 have the Blue Jays played a postseason game, a drought so lengthy that the disappointment that should be felt over a failed season has long ago been replaced with feelings of resignation and apathy.
