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.

  • Dive deep into new sounds of Montreal as you discover Tibe's latest single titled "Fluvial". This trap-infused beat is fully moisterized with bells and bass-drops that will have you breaking your neck as you bump to it effortlessly. Other than being known in the underground scene from playing shows at your local spots, Tibe has a strong community of support on soundcloud. We asked him to describe his latest track, and he said:  "When making Fluvial, I tried to make it sound like a body of water...
  • Directed by  Arthur King, the latest music video from Christine and the Queens is simplistic, yet effective in its own form. It seems as though cars in water will be an on-going trend for 2016, as we've seen it pop up various times (including Beyonce's latest video for "Formation") - Although portraying a different meaning completely this time, it was nice to see the video director concentrate on the artists by creating a universe that is calm, yet beautiful in itself.  The featuring of french...
  • It's finally here. The long-awaited music video for Montreal's Gabe 'Nandez track "Something" is officially out and was definitely worth the wait. This solid track is off his upcoming album Diplomacy and the music video was directed by Xavier Damase and shot in various locations in Montreal (watch above) -  [Something] is a song I wrote that touches upon the politics of the music industry," explains 'Nandez in an email to Noisey. "It’s a kind of chant against a lot of the gimmicks that I see...

Drop Your Skirt

  • Whether or not this following assumption plays into this whole 'dumb-ass stereotypes about what makes a woman a lesbian' is irrelevant. I mean, stating that a woman with nails isn't a lesbian is just well, ridiculous, but having killer acrylic claws pounded finger deep inside of you... that's  no joke. A woman's nails aren't only helpful cues when eliminating hopefuls at a bar, but they also give you an unexpected look at one's personality. Here is my take on Jenna Marble's 'What a girl's nails...
  • Alexander Wang is known to be popular amongst celebs and well-known personalities. He's done it before, but this year he's taking it to the ultimate next level by starting his own #WANGSQUAD. His Spring/Summer 2016 campaign will surround this notion and will feature tons of familiar people. Alexander Wang started teasing us on his new instagram account dedicated to this by showcasing polaroids of the first few names he's willing to let the world know about.  The account is so far features...
  • We're always on the cusp of wanting to know what local Montreal designer Pedram Karimi has got up his sleeves. His avant-garde image brands him as a designer who likes to make garments that could stand-alone as art-pieces, and he definitely knows how to pick the right models to showcase his looks. His Spring/Summer 2016 campaign is in, and we are getting great vibes from it. Featuring long necks and perfect bowl-cuts on adrogynous models, filtered by a blue-silver tone, which ties in the old...

The Grind

  • What is it with the internet nowadays that makes people feel entitled to share their negative opinions? Is it the screen blocking you from getting your ass beat, or do you feel a sense of entitlement to be a dick? Either way, I find that we are in need of a few guidelines on how to approach commenting on the web without sounding like pretentious pricks.  1. No One Cares if You Think Their Content "Sucks" "You're ____ sucks," is honestly the most constructive criticism a person could ever come...
  • Every so often I find myself at Remmingtons, a sexy party hub that's the only place you can find male exotic dancers in the plight of downtown Toronto. A part of the Yonge Street strip club scene, Remmingtons is a refreshing change of pace (and scenery) from the big-time favourites like the Brass Rail or Zanzibar. What's great about this club is that it's not limited to a bunch of beefcake dancers with hard-to-handle shlongs (though there's a wide variety), I've also spotted a few boy-next-door...
  • For the millionth time, a brave girl comes forward about her traumatizing rape at a university campus and the school administration thinks that it's “not a big deal,” and that they'll simply teach the assailant to not rape people next time.  This happened to Tucker Reed who went to the University of Southern California officials after her ex-boyfriend raped her. The officials did nothing except tell her that although he wouldn't be punished, he would be educated.  I'm hoping that by "...
