DC Comics and Warner Bros. Pictures need their collective heads examined if they think the trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice does either character “justice”. Maybe the comic book nerds of the world will celebrate the trailer and the film, but it just looks cliche and disappointing.
Roku has been working on some slick new additions to their hardware and user interface, and at the end of March I had a chance to sit down and see what was coming up next, including some timely updates for the Roku 2 and Roku 3 hardware.
March is one of those special months when everyone seems to be get sick, and since I caught a little bug myself, it got me thinking about feel-good drinks. Strong, black coffee or tea with lemon and lots of sugar are my go-to standards (strong coffee is always a go-to for me), but I’ve wanted to try making a hot toddy, and I’ve heard that some people think that whisky cures colds. Whether that’s true or not, who can resist a little warm whisky with sugar and spices?
The press room at the Juno Awards is anything but glamorous, but if you’re a journalist following Canadian music, it’s a glimpse behind the scenes at some of the country’s most popular artists. Sometimes that glimpse is fun, and sometimes–fairly rarely I might add–it’s not.
Sitting backstage in the media room at the Juno Awards Gala Dinner, which is at the Hamilton Convention Centre tonight, the press are waiting for the winners to be announced so we can get a few moments of their time. The night is a slow burn, but it’s a rare opportunity to catch up with arange of artists from a lot of different musical genres.
The Juno Awards are more than a few days of events and music, and it’s more than an awards show. Here in Hamilton the city is buzzing with visitors and activities, and the highlight reel of all that activity is right up there on social media, which is a bit of a glimpse into what the Junos really represent.
Just a little while ago I learned that Sir Terry Pratchett had passed away, and while I knew it was coming, because of his battle with Alzheimer’s disease, that didn’t change how hard it has been to accept. It’s safe to say that I am not alone in remembering the great author for creating a world that felt real and rich, and beautiful with his Discworld series. He was just 66 years young.
The Canadian Screen Awards kicked off on Monday, and it’s now Sunday, and since then there have been lots of awards handed out, but the big day is really the Canadian Screen Awards gala which started with a red carpet late this afternoon.
Today’s news that venerable Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy had passed away has hit a lot of science fiction fans pretty hard–myself included. The man was more than just Spock–by what I knew of him he was also a wonderful human being, and he was incredibly talented.
Thursday was the big media preview day and press conference gauntlet at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto, and it was a long but interesting day on the show floor.
