Why Tod Maffin Will Never Leave B.C.


It's not the homegrown that keeps Tod Maffin living in the Lower Mainland (goodness knows that was just a fake joint, and Tod is not getting high on marijuana, just pretending to - HE HE - he's so freakin' hilarious and cool).
No.
He's waiting to watch SCOOZIS on Howe Street go out of business, in a slow agonizing death that proves once and for all that TOD MAFFIN RULES THE UNIVERSE.

Ever since Tod Maffin exposed owner Michael Stamoulis for the hot-temperd guy that he is, business at the eatery has dropped off a dramatic .000001 %.
And it's only been two days since Tod reported how cruel Mr. Stamoulis behaves toward his staff, and how much disdain they have for the man.

As everyone knows, Tod Maffin is a futurist, and the future he divines for Michael Stamoulis is one that sees his restaurant, not just under new management, but destroyed. Kaputski.

Nothing less will do.
Though the food and service may be good (and Howe Street where I got my first job in broadcasting), once a human being has displeased Tod Maffin, can the end be anything other than inevitable?

Tod will be monitoring the demise of SCOOZIS on an infrequent basis.
It's just a few short blocks from 610 Granville Street, where he goes to pick up his free merchandise sent to him by technology companies.

In fact, I do not keep any products sent to me longer than two weeks (required for review).

After the review period, I send them back. Companies send me a return pre-paid slip for that purpose, so that Canadian taxpayers do not pay for it.

At no time, do I guarantee coverage. In fact, most items sent to me do not get aired on my national CBC technology column.

P.S. I've especially taken a screen-shot of this response. Will you leave it online?

Are you saying that you've never received anything of real value and kept it?

How much did the iPhone, for example, cost you?

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
