Epic Meal Time – Meat Building 101

When a fan wrote in for advice on making his own epic meal, Epic Meal Time didn’t just send him a recipe or some advice. They sent the whole crew. On this week’s episode of EMT, the crew teams with students from Queen’s University to recreate a campus landmark with meat, ham and bacon. I never thought I’d say this but Queen’s did the damn thing this time. Continue reading

Lowdown Radio Preview: October 13, 2009

The third episode of The Lowdown’s 2009-2010 season is on air on Tuesday night. We’re putting up the preview early so that we don’t spring this on you while you’re half asleep from Monday’s turkey dinner. It’s even a sort of special show because it’s our 40th episode. The show starts with Steve and Jackie talking about Queen’s Fauxcoming and Western’s standing as a party school. In the news, the guys discuss dumb American rules/laws. In entertainment, Britney Spears makes her Lowdown debut on the worst in music and the guys review Zombieland. When the gears shift to sports, Jackie previews the rebuilt Toronto Raptors before joining Steve to answer questions as athletes in some sports Role Play. And we have the return of Barack to show for that.

The show goes live at around 6:30 PM Eastern. If you’re in the London, ON, listening area, you can listen live on 94.9 FM. You can also listen online at CHRWradio.com/listen.

Sunday Link-Off: Fauxcoming Weekend

lacey-chabert1After my first day off from blogging in almost three weeks, here’s Lacey Chabert.

This weekend was “Fauxcoming” at Queen’s University which is a student initiated replacement for proper Homecoming. In fact, it’s an idea that we championed on the radio show to protest the end of Homecoming. Anyway, Neate Sager takes an in-depth look at Homecoming and the issues around it. (The CIS Blog)

The Queen’s Journal also had a live blog of the Fauxcoming party on Aberdeen Street. Am I the only one that thought a car being flipped was just a case of “boys will be boys”? The guy got an insurance payout and a donation from the students. He benefitted from that. (Queen’s Journal)

Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell may be a multi-time UFC champion but he’s no hot foot on the dance floor. Football and MMA insider Jay Glazer went behind the scenes with The Iceman for his Dancing With The Stars experience. (FOX Sports)

After the jump, sports movie hotties, a Western Mustangs cheerleader hottie, and Kimbo’s got a gun. Continue reading
