CULTS CULTS CULTS

Last night, one of my best buddies and I went to see Cults play at the Phoenix. We made an amazing dinner, drank a big bottle of red wine, made plans for the future and then danced to one of our favourite bands. It was a pretty amazing night and a good kick-off for this years' summer concerts.

LATELY, IN MOVIES


I haven't made up my mind about Roger Dodger. It had great conversations besides the fact that the main character Roger was a pompous ass. Re-watched Black Swan with my mom and fell in love with the soundtrack. The Titanic centennial marked the 10th time I've seen this movie in theatres, this time in 3D. It will always reduce me to tears while simultaneously filling my heart with so much love. Water Lilies, or Naissance des Pieuvres, was a great coming-of-age movie and made me think back to when I was young. I thoroughly enjoyed Easier with Practice. It sucked me right in within the first few moments of the film and ended with a great twist. Looking forward to more work from the writer/ director as well as the main actor. Gossip was a recent VHS purchase mostly because I adore Kate Hudson. Typical early 2000s college drama with a twist!

FROM WHERE I STAND: GOULD STREET, RYERSON UNIVERSITY

CITY SNAPSHOT: HALIFAX

About a year ago I was feeling a bit restless so I spontaneously booked myself a weekend vacation for one to Halifax.
1. The city is filled with memorials, this one adorned with a fresh flower; 2. It's hard to imagine the thousands of boats and passengers that arrived to this historic port city; 3. Hours could be spent browsing the aisles of JWD Bookseller. It's a must-see stop if you're ever in town; 4. So many buildings that line these streets have such a strong presence. 
5. There's a strong connection between the city and the water. You can't have one without the other in this town; 6. I was alone discovering the citadel, half-expecting ghosts of soldiers to keep me company; 7. The citadel has it's eyes on the entire city and beyond; 8. Churches of every age, religion, and construction seem to appear on every street corner.
9. I found out later that the ghost of Oscar Wilde walks the halls of the Waverley Inn. I never saw him; 10. I spent more time finding treasures at the Alexander Keith brewery then drinking beer; 11. The farmers market at Pier 21 held me over until it was time to see how my family migrated to Canada; 12. After walking the entire length of the city on a hunt for more treasures, I climbed a fence to take a picture of this family's drying laundry.
13. Keep your eyes peeled when walking through the city. Beautiful things are everywhere; 14. Cemeteries take up a very large footprint. I was hoping to capture someone when I got lost in this cemetery; 15. Unique and colourful houses (more on that later); 16. Be sure to bring two live lobsters as a part of your carry-on when flying home.

LATELY, IN MOVIES


Office Space has been on repeat as the movie I fall asleep to lately; such a classic and it's getting me prepared for 9-5 cubicle life. I watched The Vow at work while photoshopping. I probably wouldn't of seen it if it wasn't on justin.tv. It was a typical unrealistic rom-com (although it was based on true events) but it did leave me light-hearted and sappy. Beaches was my post-brunch Sunday movie. It never fails to reduce me to tears. Mammoth was one of the greatest movies I've seen in a very long time. It was a situation I'll most likely never find myself in, yet it was so incredibly real and eye-opening. I was left with my jaw on the floor of my bathtub and an even greater appreciation for two incredible actors (I adore Gael Garcia Bernal in The Science of Sleep). Adaptation was on my mind for a while before I finally saw it. Charlie Kaufman blew me away yet again and my opinion that he's brilliant has only increased. Weekend was such a beautiful movie about two men contemplating a relationship after a one-night stand. Everything about this movie was real and relatable. Perfect is a strong word but it's what comes to mind when thinking about this movie.
