Over the weekend, Sue and I had a chance to catch up with our friend, the photographer, and awesome mom, Rebecca Sandulak. We were eager to hear about her new project christened Mostly Perogies, she’s working with local organic goods, whether from local farmers or her own garden, and she is playing and tweaking this…

We’re 5 Years Old Today!!

I just wanted to take a quick moment to recognize that this is the 5th anniversary of The Mind Reels (!). We started small, and didn’t start doing daily posts until January or February of our first year. Since then, every single day there has been a post, where we share thoughts, memories, and review…

  Thanks once again to Touchwood PR, The Mind Reels will be covering Fan Expo Canada as press! I am particularly grateful this year, as it’s the first time since 2005 that I haven’t been able to purchase a pass for the weekend, and was not sure if I would be able to attend at…

Toronto Screenwriting Conference – The Mind Reels Interviews

And I can’t tell you how many times at work I wished, for just a moment, to kick back and indulge that wonderful past time and great stress releiver- colouring. Well now, you can help with the first, and create some as you colour!…

Fan Expo 2015

It’s that time of year again, and if you blink… it’s over. And that’s what I realized this morning, just like that Fan Expo is done for another year. Sigh. Still, it was a really enjoyable year as Sue, Lindsay and I dove into geekdom, and chatted with a number of great people, saw some old…
