I Need A Name Change

10 Mar

Romi Says just isn’t sexy enough.

Lucky for me, what has been described by the CBC as “a popular domain on the internet” is now on the market. Yes, sex.com, probably the site most commonly typed by 13 year old boys into the address bar of their browser is being auctioned off in New York on March 18.

Imagine the possibilities! what a surprise unsuspecting teens and adventurous 60 year olds alike will get when instead of porn, they find the blog of a smart ass journalism student? VICTORY IS MINE!

…or is it? Continue reading

I’ll Read What They’re Reading

30 Jan

I’d just like to thank Vman magazine for their Bruce Weber photographed shoot entitled “How To Read“. Perhaps it should be incorporated into high school curriculums with a female photo counterpart in order to encourage adolescents to pick up a book or six. Just a suggestion.

Adil Says: Inane Thoughts from an Inane Individual

20 Jan

As we approach the birth of my baby (and by ‘baby’, I mean My City Lives), it’s time to close shop on my guest blogging here on Romi Says and tend to the impending demands of my little guy. Accordingly, my hope was to close out with a bang but with that goal in mind, I found it impossible to settle on one topic. Eventually, like a true dabbler, I settled on several topics and providing my inane thoughts regarding them:

  • I’m not a cat person (nothing against them but my preference are Angora Rabbits) but I found myself really interested and moved by the death of Casper the Cat, who boarded the bus  outside his house every day to hitch a ride. I couldn’t help but wonder if Casper were in Toronto, would they make him pay the extra fair now that the TTC has raised its prices? My guess is yes and refusal to do so by Casper would have resulted in a trip to the Toronto Humane society which we recently learnt was one of the more inhumane places in the city.
  • I recently received a Facebook Fan Page invite for an individual I have as friend on Facebook. Nothing against them, but I thought it was a peculiar thing for them to do themselves, so much so, that I’m considering the ‘de-friend’. If you’re the one making the fan club of yourself, its probably premature. Just saying.
  • Still on Facebook Fan pages, like everyone else I get invites for everything under the sun (and in some cases, a fan club for the ‘sun’ itself). I usually hit accept to support those doing the inviting but the result is a totally skewed picture of who I am on my profile page. I wouldn’t have cared all that much until I started doing interviews and noticed that someone can see who you’re a fan of despite not being friends. So think twice next time you Fan your friend’s Toronto Tantric Lovers page. I know I will.
  • Hands up if you know someone trying to improve their exposure by creating a “Help Haiti” campaign. My PSA: There are so many ways to help people; you can easily avoid the self serving.
  • Apparently Tiger Woods was spotted coming out a Sex clinic. Do you think a lot of people hear this and think in their head, “I would love to have the problem which lead to that problem”.

All right, that’s it for me. It’s been a pleasure contributing to Romi’s virtual destination of debauchery and I encourage you to do the same. No lie, I just came back from an interview with a journalist who read my first piece on the Mayor race so it really, truly, does get you places. Especially if you are a sex addict who just started your very own Facebook fan club and was looking to drum up followers.

Help Haiti, seriously.
