The Hot5 – Jay-Z’s 99 Problems, Magic Countertops and Kittehs!

It’s hotter than balls out there! Toronto finally got summer, and we’re all melting. To keep my mind off of the temperature that is the summer equivalent of a Canadian winter day, I’m surfing the web. Here’s all the crazy cool procrastinations aids that I came across.

This week, from abandoned islands off the coast of Japan to interactive videos of drunk Brits…. we’ve got a killer line up for this week’s Hot5. Enjoy!

Between reddit, Nat&Marie and eating junk food, there's just enough time for my personal blog Karmacake.com. That is all. That is it. Oh. Instagram: Karmacake
