Saying goodbye to my mother

My earliest memories of my mother, Marilyn, are when I was three or four and my parents and I were living in a basement apartment in Saint John. We would later move to a little village an hour's drive away, to be with my grandparents, but in Saint John my mother was naturally the centre of my universe, and I still remember how she helped build up my love for things that would always be important to me. She was nurturing and caring, and she loved her family and friends deeply.

Weekly: Bianca Del Rio, Diageo cocktails, summer planning, and Air Transat

Surprise! It's June and it's busy! I always know what to expect, and I won't complain because it's always a fun, action-packed month full of adventures. Last week started it all off with a few highlights, including the screening for Now You See Me 2, actress Ellen Page and director Patricia Rozema in town to talk about Into The Forest, director Allan Ungar for his film Gridlocked, and star Bianca Del Rio and director Matt Kugelman for Hurricane Bianca at Inside Out Film Festival, to name a few things.

Weekly: Emily VanCamp, Taste Canada, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ and CMW

This week in the blog you get two for the price of one as I catch up on blogging about what I've been up to for both last week, and this week. There has been a lot going on, including an interview with Emily VanCamp, screening X-Men: Apocalypse, interviews with Cabbie Richards and two stars from How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town, a Hudson's Bay x Taste Canada event, and lots, lots more.

‘Gemini: Heroes Reborn’ – The first good thing to come from NBC’s failed franchise since Zachary Quinto

Do you remember that show from about a decade ago, with a bunch of ordinary folks gaining superpowers, and somehow all the disparate threads become interconnected? Did you know that Heroes was revived last year, as Heroes Reborn, and was to be a revival of a show that had a strong premise, and a lack of direction leading to a faltering, mostly-ignored end. Heroes Reborn did not set the world on fire, but it did lead to a surprisingly fun tie-in game, in Gemini: Heroes Reborn.
