Evolving with Wango Films

Intensely loyal, wonderfully creative and collaborative, down to earth, and constantly setting new challenges for themselves. With their new feature, 88, hitting theaters, we thought it would be an ideal time to reflect on the progress, and our association with Wango Films, known to us as April Mullen and Tim Doiron. Sue was there from…

Toronto Comicon Day 3

Yesterday was the last day of the Toronto Comicon, but Sue and I made sure we ended as happily and as strong as we started! We made sure to swing by and chat with our friend Tim Doiron at the 88 movie booth. Remember to check out their official site and trailer here. We sat in…

Toronto Comicon Day 1

The convention season got underway for Sue and I today with the Toronto Comicon, later today, we’ll be chatting with some of the celebrity guests that have been invited to this event in our usual informal way, and we’ll see how many of them we can make laugh. For now, we thought we’d share some…

Lost Girl Set Visit

It’s a dark and dreary day as Sue and I make our way across the cityscape of Toronto, heading to the west side so that we can plunge into the mysterious, and enchanting world of the Fae. Showcase has invited us to the set of Lost Girl! We’re very eager to have a look, as we…

Dead Before Dawn 3D – April Mullen

Last night, at select theatres across Canada, the zemons arrived!  Half zombie, half demon, this new brand of terror has slowly but surely been taking the world by storm, and last night, it was our turn.  A homecoming, if you will, since the halfbreeds were essentially created right here in Canada – in Niagara Falls,…

Bomb Girls – Don’t Let Go

On every occasion, Tim does the heartfelt and wonderfully-worded write-ups to each of our our beloved Bomb Girls episodes.  So close to the end, now, I feel it is only proper that he should also do the final two posts of the series.  However, upon learning yesterday that our girls will not see a Season…

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…

Fan Expo Edition!

So Fan Expo is over for another year, sigh. Oh well. Sue and I had a great time, and had some wonderful chats, and there are chats we missed out on that we’re still trying to run down, as well as more still to come, but this week, we have an amalgam of interviews over…

Fan Expo Day 4

Somehow, Day 4 of Fan Expo has come and gone – and it’s all over for another year. Wow. It’s been an amazing weekend, and each day just seemed to hold the bar or raise it in terms of awesomeness. This morning should have been a sign! Sue and I checked in at the Media…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturdays can be tough at Fan Expo if you aren’t ready and prepared. Sue and I find that the real key to Saturdays is try to stay out of everyone’s way – stay off the floor as much as you can and enjoy the Q&As and photo ops. Pick one thing you need and want to…

Fan Expo Day 1

Thomas Sullivan the Cat, thought 6:30 was plenty of time for a sleep in this morning and made sure I was up in lots of time to greet my favourite time of year – Fan Expo!!! So after a quick prep, making sure I had everything I had, I hit the TTC. I was off to…

Fan Expo 2012

Here it is August 2012! And it’s almost Fan Expo time, my favorite time of year! The Mind Reels, just shy of it’s 1 year birthday, coming up in October (can you believe it?!) has been invited to attend this year’s Fan Expo and cover it as Media. Sue and I are delighted. I’ve gone…
