4 Ways the New Samsung QLED TV Has a Solution for Everything

Samsung’s new QLED TV is made for solutions. The 4K TV not only enhances picture on anything you’re viewing, but it checks off all of the little details on a viewer’s wish list. Here’s why the Samsung QLED will improve your TV experience by blending into your space. 

It’s simply decorative 

Tired of the TV being a block in the way of your decor? The new Samsung QLED TV doubles as an art piece that blends into any room. The TV comes with beautiful, clear images and ‘paintings’ that add character to your space. You can choose from the images given, or upload your own to customize. That’s not all – you can also play with hues to match the lighting in a room, and purchase snap-on frames for a truly decorative experience. If you’re worried about the power use, don’t worry – the art only turns on automatically when you enter the room and will shut off shortly after you leave.

You can display it any way

The QLED TV comes in both a curved and flat screen models, so you can pick whichever suits your home best. You can also choose between a sleek, metal Gravity stand or an artsy Studio stand to match your home’s style. The Gravity stand in particular goes beyond just form – the TV can pivot on it so you can watch from any angle. So, if your kitchen faces one way and your couch faces another, you don’t have to worry about turning your TV on a heavy stand.

Beautiful picture – your way. 

Adjusting the contrast and brightness on your TV can get in the way of what your watching and also sometimes be difficult to navigate. The QLED TV solves this with the ability to speak into the One Remote Control to set your contrast levels, volume and more on command.

It’s a one-clicker, one-cord wonder 

The One Remote control eliminates the struggle of looking for “the other remote”, and the mess of wires that often tangles behind your TV. All of your apps – from Netflix to Apple TV to Xbox, are all controlled with one sleek remote. The One Power Cable is nearly invisible, and condenses all of your cords into one HDMI connection. In addition, it runs long enough to hide any boxes and connected devices in another room, so the TV maintains its decorative quality.

Like the sound of that?

The single-piece Sound+Soundbar delivers multidimensional sound with special distortion-canceling technology. The simple, small, sleek soundbar gives off powerful bass while still maintaining a minimalistic look. The forward-facing speakers make the sound feel like it’s coming out of your TV, and the upward-facing overhead speaker on the bar gives a surround-sound effect without all of the additional speakers. You can also purchase additional surround sound packages to enhance the sound further, or you can keep it simple with the state-of-the-art Sound+Soundbar.

The Samsung QLED TV lineup of Q7 and Q8 models are available now at select retailers across Canada. Q7-series flat screen models are priced at for $3799.99 (55″) MSRP, $5499.99 (65″) MSRP and $7999.99 (75″) MSRP. Q8-series curved screen models are priced at $4799.99 (55″) MSRP, $6499.99 (65″) MSRP and $8999.99 (75″) MSRP.

Stanley Park Brewing gets Refreshed

Same fresh taste, inspired new look, just in time for National Beer Day

Stanley Park Brewing is bringing a new look to their adventurous portfolio of brews just in time for National Beer Day. Just as every beer is crafted as a tasty tribute to the Park experience, the time has come to refresh the brand identity to celebrate and better reflect their source of inspiration.

Stanley Park Brewing launched this new look on April 7th. The reinvigorated design may feel fresh, but the source has been brewing for some time.

Taking cues from the landscape and materials of the Park, it features illustrated park moments, a new logo mark inspired by the unique shape of the park, and a custom typeface whose natural, stick-inspired letters are derived from an early iconic Stanley Park sign

“Walking into the brewery my goals are always to craft new brews focusing on quality and innovation, and bringing the spirit of Stanley Park to life with every sip. Our new look has been crafted with that same purpose in mind.” says Brewmaster, Todd Fowler.

“In everything we do, we are Stanley Park inspired, and having a look that’s grown from that same inspiration was a natural step forward, shares Doug Devlin, Head of Marketing at Stanley Park Brewing. “Instead of feeling completely new, we now feel closer to our roots.”

Exploring Squamish Part 4: What To Do in Squamish

Tourism Squamish recently invited myself and some other local online media folks to come get a taste of life in nearby Squamish. It is like a little secret paradise, less than an hour’s drive from Vancouver. Here are some of the amazing adventures we experienced:

The Airhouse Freestyle Trampoline Centre

The Airhouse is a progressive, freestyle training centre offering a wide range of trampoline and conditioning programs for everyone. Their goal is to provide the best jumping experience in a safe and fun learning environment. Whether you are a kid just starting to learn trampoline basics to a competitive athlete looking for professional training and coaching.


Fergie’s Brunch in a Riverside Guest Cabin at Sunwolf Resort

It’s a one of a kind place and possibly the best hidden secret in the region. This resort is located on the banks of the Cheakamus river in Brackendale. Historic and authentic this resort offers many experiences. The accommodation varies between charming River Side cabins, Fisherman’s Cottage and the Logger’s Shack. Fergies’ Café on site is the one of the best breakfast and brunch places in town. Sunwolf also operates whitewater rafting excursions and eagle viewing floats in the winter season.


Squamish Explorer Flight Seeing Tour with Sea to Sky Air

With Sea to Sky Air, we flew above and beyond the massive granite cliffs of the Stawamus Chief, the cascading waters of Shannon Falls, and the spectacular peaks of the Tantalus range to what really makes Squamish one of the world’s most beautiful places.


Brewery Tour, Beer Tasting and Lunch at Howe Sound Inn & Brewing Co.

Rated one of the best pubs for food and beer in the Lower Mainland, the brew pub has become known as the meeting place in Squamish for locals and tourists alike. With high ceilings and post and beam construction, the brew pub offers a unique venue to show off the Stawamus Chief rock climbing face, and breathtaking views of local natural scenery.

In 1996, John Mitchell helped design the Howe Sound Brewery and worked as the first brewer developing the initial recipes. Known as the “grandfather of micro-brewing in Canada”, Howe Sound Brewing is proud of his ongoing relationship with their brewery. Today they continue to brew in the craft style using unfiltered 100% barley mash. They pride themselves in brewing a diverse selection of flavourful, well-balanced ales.


Tour of Ravenswood Show Home and Development (Benchmark Homes Ltd.)

Ravenswood is a community of three and four bedroom single family homes surrounded by the beautiful mountain town of Squamish yet close enough to hustle and bustle of Vancouver. “Ravenswood is the first and only large, single builder, master planned community to come to Squamish. It is the first opportunity for those looking to purchase a quality, modern and affordable family home in the Sea to Sky. This project fills a large gap in the local housing market, and should resonate with the young families looking to raise their children in their own paradise,” says sales team member Andrew Laurie.


Tour of Executive Suites Hotel & Resort (Where We Stayed)

All suites hotel and resort property featuring fully equipped kitchens with full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave. Cooking and dining accessories, coffee maker as well as separate dining area and large balcony – many with stunning panoramic mountain views.

Menu focusses on seasonal small share plates that use fresh and sustainable ingredients.

Squamish Via Ferrata Tour at Sea to Sky Gondola

Via Ferrata, Italian for “Iron Way” is an engineered vertical adventure, assisted by metal rungs and a specialized cable system. This exciting trip is suitable for children and families alike, and is a fully guided experience.


Squamish Farmers Market and Xwu’nekw Canoe Shelter

Built in 2015 to house, restore and showcase historical First Nations canoes, the Xwu’nekw Canoe Shelter is housed on a traditional Squamish Nation village site where the Skwxwú7mesh people and visitors from other First Nations beached their canoes.


SQUAMISH – Located on the ocean at the tip of the Howe Sound fjord, Squamish offers the world’s most epic outdoor adventures from Sea to Sky, all within 10 minutes. In Squamish you can play on the ocean and explore the mountains all in the same day. The Sea to Sky Gondola opens up easy access to expansive alpine hiking and sightseeing. Located on the doorstep of eight Provincial Parks, Squamish boasts more than 3,500 rock climbing routes and bouldering problems including the famous Stawamus Chief, more than 200 kilometers of world renowned mountain biking single track trails and access to some of the best kiteboarding and windsurfing conditions in North America.

Tourism Squamish recently invited myself and some other local online media folks to come get a taste of life in nearby Squamish. It is like a little secret paradise, less than an hour’s drive from Vancouver. In this four part series, I will share with you some of the adventures we experienced.

Xwu’nekw Canoe Shelter

While visiting the Squamish Farmers Market, we happened upon the Xwu’nekw Canoe Shelter (pronounced Whoo-Nay-Oak) located in Xwu’nekw Park on the Mamquam Blind Channel and Loggers Lane between Victoria and Main Streets.

Built in 2015 to house, restore and showcase historical First Nations canoes, the Xwu’nekw Canoe Shelter is housed on a traditional Squamish Nation village site where the Skwxwú7mesh people and visitors from other First Nations beached their canoes.

District of Squamish Mayor Patricia Heintzman describes the shelter as “a place for collaboration and shared learning between the Squamish Nation and the Squamish community”. The community project, made possible thanks to a Canadian Heritage Legacy Fund grant designed to build communities through arts and heritage, was a ‘made-in-Squamish-by-Squamish’ project. The project was initiated by the Downtown Squamish Business Improvement Association to establish a historical attraction that would help bring visitors and locals alike to the downtown area, and build a stronger partnership with First Nations community members.

Fatima and I dropped in to speak with Josh Watts who was working on repairing a hand made ocean canoe. Watch the video to learn about how these traditional canoes are built from a single tree, and are bringing Josh and his people closer together in an incredible way!

Squamish Explorer Flight Seeing Tour with Sea to Sky Air

Generally, I don’t like flying, and I thought flying in a tiny little 4-seater plane would be even more scary, but I was in for a surprise with Sea to Sky Air. I had never been in a small plane before. It’s the BIG planes that are scary! This flight was a breeze, and that’s because of the small car-like feel of the little aircraft, and now I want one because I swear to God, this sightseeing-by-air was one of the very best experiences of my life! I need to come back, we were in heaven!

Watch as we fly above and beyond the massive granite cliffs of the Stawamus Chief, the cascading waters of Shannon Falls, and the spectacular peaks of the Tantalus range to see what really makes Squamish one of the world’s most beautiful places. If you want to experience this yourself, don’t worry they’re open through the winter too!

Via Ferrata at Squamish Sea to Sky Gondola

I have hiked the Squamish Chief many times, and each time I’ve looked up from the base and seen little ants up on the cliff. Well, not really ants but rock climbers, way up high on the rock face. I haven’t tried that yet, but I am one step closer after having tried the Via Ferrata by Mountian Skills Academy and Adventures at Squamish Sea to Sky Gondola.

‘Via Ferrata’ is Italian for “Iron Way”, an engineered vertical climbing adventure, assisted by metal rungs and a specialized cable system. It was an exciting and unique climbing experience, rich with awe-inspiring views of Howe Sound and the nearby peaks. Experience Squamish Via Ferrata through my eyes in the video above!

Sunee D’s Comedy is Intensely Refreshing

Sunee D is not an orange, sugary drink, but a tall, brown, homegrown story-telling comedian with unique style and swagger that I’d label “goofy hip-hop.” The “D” is for Dhaliwal and Sunee is blowing up right now with performances at Montreal’s Just For Laughs, Halifax and Winnipeg comedy festivals, appearances on the CBC, MTV, Comedy Network, recorded specials for CTV’s Comedy Now, Sirius XM and now his own comedy special.

On Thursday night at the legendary Rio Theatre in East Vancouver, I caught up with the funnyman backstage before his new comedy special, “BROKEN DREAMS” which was being produced that night by Hadron Films.

As you’ll see in my video, Sunee shared with me how he got into stand-up in the first place and who inspired him the most, his relationship with Drake, and eating lobster in the Maritimes. We also discussed skydiving, his ridiculous sneaker collection – we even did an impromptu unboxing of his “Legend Blue” Jordan 11 Columbias, and what sort of rituals he goes through before shows.

The opening acts for the show that night were comedians Devin Alexander, James Kennedy, and Graham Clark. My initial vibe was OK, let’s get these start up acts out of the way for the main event, we came to see Sunee! Let me tell you, I was so incorrect in thinking that! Sunee’s performance delivered top notch, touching on his ethnicity and travels in remote villages of northern Canada. You can imagine the hilarious scenarios. Sunee killed it with this and so much more, but each of these opening comedians were also so god-damn funny in their own right, I nearly pissed my pants. I mean, I was exploding with laughter, like a machine gun! I’m sure you will hear me whenever the special runs. If you missed the show, trust me you gotta find this special and watch it. You will not be disappointed.

The last big comedy show I saw in Vancouver was Louis CK (he’s my absolute favourite) and as always, I laughed so hard I nearly suffocated. Seriously, the laughs from Sunee’s show at the Rio were on par with Louis’. It was such a fun evening and the Rio is licensed so you can enjoy an adult beverage. It was truly refreshing to experience entertainment, up close and in person like this at a local venue. What a great night! I have not laughed that much in a long time!
