Hey! How’s it going? Feels like I haven’t spoken to you in weeks, what with all the running around I’ve been doing and movies I’ve been writing about. Everything alright at home? How’s the family?
I was doing pretty well when I started writing this, but as I start this day and I read about the senseless violence in Colorado, it leaves me shocked and saddened. I really don’t understand this world sometimes. We’re dealing with a lot of gun violence here in Toronto in recent weeks, but at least none of them have involved someone mowing down random people in a crowd.
This really isn’t how I wanted to start my weekend, and my heart goes out to all affected by this terrible incident in Aurora.
For your listening and reading fulfillment, I give you…

Sometimes, it’s difficult to explain why I choose to be a writer. Wouldn’t you know it, The Kid sums it up so. damned. well.
There are a few really dumb 80’s movies that will always have a special place in my heart, and REAL GENIUS is one of them. Dan checked it out last week as part of his ongoing 1980’s Comedy Marathon.
Remember when I broke my anime cherry? Well Stevee Taylor is breaking hers now.
Another thing I did while I was away was catch up with BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. I’m still hashing out my thoughts on it to post a review next week, but while I do – take a look at James’ take on the film over at TO Screen Shots.
