The last two weeks have been a bit of a break for a change, after what I can only call one of the best years ever for The GATE. There were highs and lows, but most of all, I just feel very thankful.
When I’m travelling, I usually bring a lot of gear with me. There’s my DSLR, an action camera, and usually a couple of phones because I’m working on reviews. For my vacation to Disney World this year though, I decided I was going to try and carry less, so I just brought the Apple iPhone 11 with me many days, and it was frankly one of the best decisions of the trip.
We got #VeryMerry on November 8 with the first night of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for 2019 at Walt Disney World, and while it was a damp night, the party was a lot of fun.
In September, Roku announced their latest lineup of devices for 2019, and at the same time they revealed a big update for The Roku Channel. Beyond the popular movies and TV shows, the channel also now features 14 live streams, including some great food and travel programming.

Happy National Publicist Day! October 30th is all about an unsung group of professionals that almost literally make what I do possible, and I can’t thank all of these wonderful people enough.
Aerial game trekking might be the most challenging thing I’ve tried in a long time, and it’s like nothing else. Imagine an obstacle course in the treetops, and you’ve got the general idea.

Chicago is a traveller’s dream. For the last few days I’ve been exploring the city with an epic itinerary created …
This year’s Toronto International Film Festival has been filled with a lot more opportunities to participate in interesting events that I don’t normally get the time to enjoy. There have been screenings and interviews, but I’ve also been out to a number of unique sessions that have been impressive, especially the OLG Dream Deck at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
If TIFF is at all consistent in any way, it’s the fact that I almost always start my festival experience with a Canadian film interview, and this year it was for the bloody, intelligent, and culturally significant Midnight Madness opening film, Blood Quantum.
