THE HEAT INDEX: November 2011

Songs about shoes, Italian Stallions, Nazi stormtroopers, and seven other things that make November a sexy, sexy month.

One of the most addictive series of games ever made, period. The final installment of Ezio Auditore's adventures through Renaissance Europe come to a close. The ending is supposed to be orgasmic. Cannot wait to see what happens next!

The Burger Family has a new member! Apparently, Grampa's been holding out on us; his wife Grandma just got thrown into the fray with a prime rib burger. The verdict? One yummy senior citizen.

The book may be about six years old now, but it's still friggin good fantasy considering it was written by a teenager! The last installment of the Inheritance Cycle is supposed to come out later this month, so we here at STU are getting caught up on what's been happening in Alagaesia to prep for the final exam!

This indie-pop band straight outta Los Angeles has a unique, funky sound that we can't get enough of! If "Pumped Up Kicks" doesn't make you smile, you're weird.

The DC Comics Universe rebooted itself a couple of months ago, but its stories are really gearing into full heat now. We recommend Justice League, Batman and anything involving a Green Lantern character.

Since LOST left the airways, it left quite the sizeable gap in our hearts. but that gap just may be filled by Eddie Kitsis & Adam Horowitz's new kick-ass fairy tale drama project, Once Upon A Time. With a very creative story, extremely cool characters, and visual effects a little too good for TV, this new fall show may very well deliver the happy ending we've been craving!

We love apps that do cool things. We love FREE apps even more. So when we got the chance to identify songs just by holding our phones up to the radio and we didn't have to pay a penny for it, it was a match made in musical heaven.

Being back in a play after having performed it 10 years ago was surreal to say the least! But not only did the play go well, we got a standing ovation, a visit from the mayor, and an ajudication that rocked the house. I'm sure it was all because of that one sexy fellow who played the butler, though... ;)

This hidden gem in downtown Brampton popped up on our radar when we were looking for a quick bite at 7am. Serving all-day breakfast at insanely good prices (you can get two fried eggs, two sausages, a coffee, plenty of toast, and the hash brown you've ever tasted for only 6 bucks!), this little slice of awesome is now on our favourites list.

The game isn't out yet but the excitement keeps mounting! Unlike the Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed series, Zelda games take a along time...but it's worth the wait! The newest addition, six years on the heels of its predecessor, is supposed to knock all of the previous games out of the water, and deliver an 80+ hour quest that takes Link to the sky and beyond. Pass the bomb flowers, please.
