TIFF chaos is finally here

After a long, long wait, the Festival has finally started! Yes, it’s every media and movie nut’s favorite time of the year–schmooze time! That time of the year when everyone with a pass looks important, when die hard fans clutch desperately at their pens and pads of paper as they dodge security trying to get autographs, and photographers climb lamp-posts trying to get that ideal shot for the cover of Big Shot Magazine. It’s the time of year when a whole industry dines daily on popcorn and other expensive delectables from the greasy movie theatre concession stands, and it’s also that time when it’s not uncommon seeing someone carrying around a pillow as they run from theatre to theatre trying to catch as many shows as possible.

Introduction to a blog

“To write a diary every day is like returning to one’s own vomit.” -Enoch Powell.

Let me be honest here, this is my fifth attempt at running a blog/journal, and considering the way I operate, this one has about as much chance of surviving as all the rest! Still, I am at least trying again – so that’s something, right?
