U8TV: Valery & Kalen Quit?

Although I can’t confirm this right now, I received feedback today from someone claiming that Valery and Kalen had quit the Loft. I’m digging around to see what I can find out, so for now this should be treated as a rumor and nothing more, but I can say that Kalen’s image has been removed from the Lofter’s page and replaced with the U8TV logo.

U8TV: HMV Interviews

Jen & Tre were at HMV at 333 Yonge Street here in Toronto yesterday to interview anyone who wanted to be one of the next 8 Lofters.

TIFF 2001: ‘Novocaine’ Movie Review

If thinking of the dentist makes your teeth hurt then seeing Novocaine is bound to be a double wammy of pain. Not only is there at least one scene bound to leave you hurting, but despite the incredible cast and the title, there’s very little pain relief except for Steve Martin’s occaisonal comic relief as the lead character, Frank Sangster.

TIFF 2001: ‘Mulholland Drive’ Movie Review

In Mulholland Drive, David Lynch weaves a fantastic spectacle that dazzles with acting, imagery, cinematography and an intricately simple story that is deserving of at least a couple of Academy awards. This is Lynch at his best with one of the most wonderous, mind-warping escapades I can think of in recent years and it’s done as a two-part story that could almost be two seperate stories. Except you would have a hard time excavating the first part from the second. It is also almost impossible to realise, as your sitting there in the theatre, where one part ends and the next begins.
