To Tinder or Not to Tinder? or How to get Laid using your Smartphone

There is a new, absolutely effortless way to get laid, and what's so great about it is that you don't even need to get your ass out of bed to find your soulmate. Yes, the time of desperate nocturnal hunts is over, thanks to Tinder—a smartphone app, launched in the US, that permits you to browse through the profile pics of sexy fellow users. The way it works is simple: if a chick or a guy is hot, like their photo. And if they like yours back, you can instantly commence your digital flirtations. Who knows where it might lead you... Already 6 people got engaged this way.

When there's a match, the chat can begin

Well, that’s fantastic. Zero effort is needed to get into a hot person's bed. The era of shyness is now over, and you can talk to your 1-minute-old crush without fear of being ridiculously incapacitated. 

But honestly, that shit is weird. I mean, a machine is hooking you up. What happened to "No pain no gain"? Where is the challenge, the satisfaction that you’ve seduced someone by your own means, the pride, the glory, the timeless moment when you finally get what you want? You can flirt at home to get in touch with the people that are supposed to like you, and vise versa. I said, "supposed to like you." Many people see this phenomenon as the glorification of appearance over personality, and although I might sound like a lame old transistor radio, yeah, that’s "today's sad truth". 

Who knows who you're dating, they're sexy psychopaths sometimes...

Yet, think of the hundred times you fell in love in the street. How many times did you tell yourself that you would definitely marry that girl if you had the opportunity to chat her up. One has to admit that almost every romantic or sexual encounter is triggered "at first sight". With Tinder, there are no excuses. So, hey, it's the modern day, and finding a way to have sex without putting in huge amounts of time or money, would not label you as a creepy-geeky-stalker just for having that app on your phone.

So, for every guy who needs a wingman, and every chick who needs a wingwoman, don’t rely on your best friend; Tinder is faster, better, and it won't ever cock-block you.

     After a decade’s hiatus, Canadian rockers HEADSTONES released Love + Fury in 2013 to the delight of audiences in search of the band’s distinctive blend of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll. The band very much in form follows with One In The Chamber Music, a collection of a dozen fan-requested new arrangements of catalogue favourites as well as two brand-new titles, Laugh Lines and first single Colourless, which is available as an instant gratification for...

    The inspiration for this article came a few weeks ago when I realized this fucking show is still on the air. After having obtained this pertinent information I proceeded to attempt convincing my friend Dave that we should totally go to a taping when we go to NYC for the sake of nostaligia. He said no. That's when I asked myself, ''was I the only 9 year old who had a secret obsession with Maury? Let us rewind a bit, taking you back to 1999/the early 2000's, When only rich people had cell...

    PRE-KAYTRANADA The Hoxton was filing up nice just after eleven and people were vibing off Toronto DJ hrmxny. I mean when real tracks such as "Confessions" by Usher, "Ignition" by R.Kelly (classic) and a dope remix of "Pretty Boy Swag" by Soulja Boy comes on, obviously the crowd will be pleased and wildn' out . Next to keep the pre-show going was Sean Leon who confidently stepped up and instantly had mad crowd presence. Can't remember the last time I've seen a rapper have a bass...

    When I was offered to cover the Bastille concert at the Air Canada Centre, I willingly accepted. Hailing all the way from London, Bastille delivers a clear message about spreading positivity. The Bad Blood Tour is the band's first time in North America, and Toronto's welcoming was nothing short of victorious. To me, Dan Smith's voice sounds like if Justin Vernon and Sam Smith were one: angelic. As Chris Malinchak would describe, many of the songs instill, "an icy warmth". It was a truly...

    On October 17th, two dudes from Germany arrived in Toronto, dressed in two psychedelic-looking sweaters.

    Catfish and the Bottlemen are probably the hottest UK band right now and yet most people haven’t heard of them. They have just released their debut album The Balcony, can be compared to The Strokes, and are currently on their first UK and US tour; their UK tour sold out pretty much instantly. And pretty soon, these four Brits will be taking over.  I have never been so excited to see a band in a very, very long time. I thought they would sell out The Echo in LA instantly, but they are...
