A Link to the Past

It is quite literally a link to the past. Kotaku came across an auction for six, unopened, PAL copies of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the Super NES.

Of course, a treasure like this isn’t exactly going to be cheap, but I believe that the buyer does not take rupees.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past first came out in 1991, but has since been reincarnated on the Game Boy Advance back in 2002 and then on the Virtual Console in 2007.

The Canadiens are celebrating their 100th anniversary this year since their inception in December of 1909.

Anime Footwear

Most anime series have loads of merchandise featuring images of the main characters or logos and replicas of items used in those series. There’s a lot of apparel from some of the more popular series; Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Bleach, to name a few. Among the t-shirts, hats and hoodies are the elusive pairs of shoes. While Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! have sneakers tailored towards younger kids, UK based T.U.K. made skate shoes for Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach along with Fullmetal Alchemist slip-ons. Nike and Bandai teamed up as well to create a limited edition pair of runners based on Naruto for the Japanese youth market.

Got a question? 3-1-1!

The City of Vancouver has a new number you can call if you have a question about city services or for non-emergencies. You can now dial 3-1-1 to get in touch with a city representative who can help you out on most topics and handle instances that do not require immediate police or fire intervention.

3-1-1 is already in use in other cities, like Chicago, where citizens can call about residential services, municipal policies and even report less than pleasant cab drivers. This new number should make it easier for residents in Vancouver to get their questions answered.

Get the pan on the stove!

Gordon Ramsay and his vulgar culinary style are back for another season of Hell’s Kitchen on FOX (or Global if you’re in Canada).¬† The hit reality TV series features a group of chefs, under the watchful eye of the foul-mouthed Ramsay, vying for a top kitchen position in an upscale restaurant is now in its sixth season. The new season starts on Tuesday, July 21st and has been moved to a new time slot of 8:00 PM PT/7:00 PM CT on Tuesday instead of Thursday.
