Jason, I understand, and agree with, your comment that some of them were merely exercises, and also with your wondering whether, as such, some should have been included. My guess is that the programmers want to have a full-blown multi-day festival but PEI doesn't really have the content/talent base to justify a full-blown multi-day festival. I think the next step PEIsland film-makers need is to be subjected to constructive commentary and criticism. I don't think it's enough, now, to be lauded simply for having something finished. I think content/talent needs to be addressed more.

I am a sucker for a good math story. I don't particularly like math, and am not particularly good at math, but I enjoy the world of math. This is a fantastic documentary about a man trying to prove (or disprove) Fermat's Last Theorum. Before watching this video, I had no idea who or what Fermat was, or his theorum. You don't need to know what these math guys are necessarily talking about. The documentary does a great job of finding the drama within the story, so that the actual math is rather irrelevant. Take a watch. If you make... Continue reading

From The Guardian: Letting the private sector own and operate a new seniors home in Charlottetown is nothing short of highway robbery, says Prince Edward Island’s largest public sector union. "And, believe me, we know a thing or two about highway robbery," added the union. Continue reading

Here's the first sentence from a story from yesterday's CBC page: A 41-year-old man from Charlottetown, P.E.I., was sentenced to six years in prison for sexually assaulting a 19-year-old man with a weapon. First question: Which man had the weapon - the 41 year-old or the 19 year-old? Second question: Did the 41-year old actually use the weapon in the act of the sexual assault? Third question: How are things?

Is this intentional? Guardian article about changes to the Stray Livestock Act. Here's the accompanying photo. And the first line of the article is "Wandering cows beware." ??? Is this some sort of sad attempt at a photo/verbiage joke? I don't mean to imply that the women in the picture are cow-ish, but come on. What does the photo have to do with the issue, other than they're all going in to the Legislature to debate the issue? Continue reading

I don't really know how this post's title refers to the topic. You don't have to be a lesbian to either a) ask to have your face sat upon, or b) to sit upon a face. It was either "Sit Ubu Sit. On My Face" or "Sha La La Lesbian". Either way, Elyse Keaton is a lesbian. I'm sure Steven must have known. Alex P isn't gay, and neither is Mallory, I'm guessing (but she undoubtedly experimented during her college years. Yes, Mallory went to college!) But what about Jennifer? I'd bet good money that Tina Yothers takes after her... Continue reading

I'm not really a fan of Adam Lambert's music*, but I think I'm a fan of him. There's been a controversy surrounding him since his appearance at the American Music Awards last weekend, where he performed sexually-suggested moves and (gasp) kissed a male band-mate. His appearance the next day (or a couple days later?) on Good Morning America was cancelled. Both AMA and GMA are ABC network shows. Anyway, here's a pretty thoughtful and matter-of-fact explanation from him, from his appearance on CBS' The Early Show. *to be fair, I haven't really listened to much of it. Continue reading

Is this not one of the weirdest headlines: Megan Fox Wears Panties, Lifts Foot Above Head And, just to prove it true, here's a photo: Is this what journalism has come to? Still, if I could do that, I'd never leave my house. Continue reading

Ex-NHL player Theo Fleury ready to pursue charges against Graham James, says report. That's an article in The Journal Pioneer. You know, it's tragic, and all that, when people get abused or abuse things. Even famous people. But it'd be nice if, every once in a while, the truth about the abuse didn't come out to co-incide with a book tour. Continue reading

Doesn't this picture look like the type of picture you take by extending your arm, camera in hand, and snapping? Did Mitch take this himself? The photo is taken from this article from the online version of The Guardian (which covers the Island like the "your bill is past due"). So is this quote: It’s a very precarious, vulnerable and dangerous intersection,” Mitchell Tweel said of the Pond Street and Queen Street intersection. Awesome adjectives to describe the intersection! I've crossed that intersection many times. I know, for a fact, that it is also a very lonely, obtuse and reserved... Continue reading

According to this article from the online version of The Guardian (which covers the Island like the Dewey decimal system), THEY will be distributing arm bands to make swine flu vaccination lines easier to manage. That's all fine and good. Or so I thought. Turns out this is what the arm bands will look like: Anybody else concerned about this? Is J.J. Steinfeld still in town? Continue reading

Peter, I am fearful of her too. I respect the fear, and I respect Darlene. Is there a harder working, more enterprising person in town?

Thanks for coming out, Calico. That Summerside crowd was very enthusiastic.
