Like two socks in a drawer: Manpacks + Nat & Marie = A win for you!

I love superheroes. I have my favourite1 but in all honesty they’re all freakin’ fantastic. The X-Men cartoons were one of my favourite to watch while growing up and I was obsessed with Heroes when it was on2. So when I found out that the fantastic Nat & Marie crew3 were hosting a contest and using promo videos that featured three local superheroes, I had to write about it. Watch their contest promo video below and have some fun:

So what is Manpacks anyway? Manpacks is a handy service that lets you pick out all your need to have items (deodorant,  socks, underwear, hangover pills, etc) and mails it to your door every 3 months. Or as their facebook about line reads, “Like if Netflix and iTunes had a baby that sold underwear”. Clever.

Do you know a guy that needs Manpacks? Are you a guy who needs Manpacks? Are you a girl who loves using guy goodies? Then this contest is for you!

Nat & Marie have teamed up with Manpacks to give away one FREE 1 YEAR subscription to the service of your choice! How awesomesauce is that? I know, it’s pretty damn awesomesauce. You’re going to have to do some fun-work to win this contest. Pronto. The winner will be announced July 18th. That’s less than two weeks from today, what are you waiting for? Oh, right. Contest details.

Reflecting on my DefineTO experience

Where there is good heart, there are good times to be had. It’s no secret that DefineTO was a very different event than [the event that everyone is comparing it to from] last year. I wish I could run you through the night but I was dealing with some personal demons that night so I got there pretty late.

I was only a little nervous about having to defend my title as reigning champion of Nat&Marie‘s Karaoke Twidol Challenge. I lost. But only by a lot of votes. Jameel totally deserved to win though – don’t you worry about it. He also says he’s retiring while he’s still on top. Not I. I’ll be back next year.

In case you’re interested, I sang No Doubt’s Don’t Speak. It was very Emo. I made people cry. It was good.

Even though I missed some of it, I happen to know that they had some pretty awesome activities throughout the night like a Draw Something Contest (!!!), a Kissing Booth with Saul Colt & Casie Stewart. Damn it.. I could have definitely been kissed that night. Ah wells.

I did get to see performances from The Remix Project and Ryan Creelman who were all so very good.

I also got to play around with sweetgif. What’s sweetgif? It’s an app that allows you to make your own gifs with the simple click of a button. Best of all, it’ll be ready to share on the internet in milliseconds. Here are a few from DefineTO:

So. Much. Fun. Check out more sweetgifs on their website, and heck: make your own. Get wild!

I enjoyed myself greatly and want to congratulate Melissa, Fahima & their awesome team on a job well done. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next year!
