Five Best Online Dating Sites

People used to be embarrassed to say that they met online. Even today, going online is a signal to some folks that you haven't been able to successfully meet someone in a more traditional way, but that group is shrinking every day. In most demographics, using the Internet to meet someone now is the norm -- it's just a matter of which site or app you are going to use to do it. Not sure if you should be using or Tinder? Plenty of Fish or Grindr? Are you wondering if less obvious sites like might be more casual with less pressure? Which sites are mainly for one-night stands and which ones should you be using if you are looking for a long-term relationship? Lifehacker polled its readers and came up with this handy list of the five best online dating sites.


Music Live 2.0

Whether you are a casual music fan or a hardcore concert-goer who's signed up to every band's mailing list, the new version of Manitoba Music's dedicated app will make it easier for you to find out about festivals, album release parties, concerts, open mics, jams and events in your community.

Music Live 2.0 was launched in March 2014 and has become one of the tools curious Manitobans have had at their disposal during the Year of Music to help them discover new acts or get reacquainted with old favourites. Download it and make this summer count for live music, whether it be the upstart Rainbow Trout Music Festival, an afternoon blues jam, the fifth anniversary of the Manitoba Electronic Music Exhibition or a local band you haven't heard before.


Video of the Week: Rick Rubin Interview

While producer Rick Rubin may be instantly recognizable, with his ZZ Top beard and thinning white hair, his approach in the studio can't be nailed down as easily. The genius behind the early careers of highly influential acts such as Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys and LL Cool J, Rubin also helped reboot Johnny Cash and Black Sabbath and recently worked on Kanye West's Yeezus, Eminem's The Marshall Mather's LP 2, Lana Del Rey's Paradise and Lady Gaga's Artpop.

The BBC's Zane Lowe sits down with the award-winning producer and co-founder of Def Jam Records at his Malibu studios to talk about his early career, helping Kanye realize his vision and what it was like to work on one of Cash's most critically and commercially successful albums, while at the same time helping to reintroduce the Man in Black back into pop culture.


Download of the Week: Grimes -- Go

Recently rejected by Rihanna, the song Go was crafted by Grimes and partner-in-crime and fellow Canadian Blood Diamonds. While its frantic bass pops, trapped-out drums and underlying melodies might not be right for Rihanna, Grimes makes quick work of the track for herself -- it either foreshadows a slightly new, more commercial/club-ready sound or she's just clearing out her hard drive of ideas she has been pitching other people. A free download is available from the singer/producer's Soundcloud page.
