The LivingRoom Community Colouring Book

Art and creation matters, it can fire the imagination, inspiring us. 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!…

Nocturne (2014) – Saul Pincus

  It’s the last evening for the Canadian Film Fest, and the first evening show at the Royal Cinema on College St is well worth seeing. The main feature, Nocturne, is preceded by Gaybasher, directed by Ron Leach, a rather dark and violent short about a beating in an alley, a fight against bigotry, and…

The Untitled Work of Paul Shepard, starring Lost Girl’s Kris Holden-Ried and Zoie Palmer, is a film that will always have an important part in my life, it was one of my fave films of 2011, and also created a number of friendships and acquaintances with some amazing people, not the least of which is Jeremy Lalonde, Mary Krohnert,…

August in the Underworld

Our friends Mary Krohnert and Anthony Grani brought this amazing project they are involved with to our attention.

Happy 1st Birthday for The Mind Reels!

When I was younger, physically and chronologically, not mentally, I often thought about talking and working with people in the entertainment industry. I also thought about being a starship captain like James T. Kirk or walking with dinosaurs, but hey, one dream at a time. Growing up, I was not necessarily an outsider, but I…

Sex After Kids – Set Visit

“Let the chaos begin,” director Jeremy Lalonde says, repositioning his trademark hat as he returns to his station at the monitor. “Action.” And the scene comes to life before my eyes.
