The ZENN car

And here’s an electric car made in Canada, which cannot be purchased or driven in Canada. Zero emission, no noise.

Wonder Woman defeated

It’s sad when you’re happy that a show about Wonder Woman won’t be picked up as a series by a major TV station. But it’s better this way.

Joan Rivers

The hardest working lady in comedy was in Toronto on Monday as part of the Unique Lives and Experiences Speaker Biographies at Roy Thomson Hall.
She was hilarious , talked trash about Barbra Streisand, Nicole Kidman, Suri Cruise, and Russell Crowe, and dispensed hard-earned wisdom and her sharp one-liners. But all jokes aside, Joan delivered inspiration for all of those who can only hope to reach 78 and still have that much energy and relevance. Her life is a case study in career survival and the fact that she makes even her darkest moments hilarious is a testament to her talent.


Marvel managed to make a pretty entertaining and faithful movie about one of its less exciting characters. Maybe there is hope for Captain America.

Destruction & Restructure in CGI

People love to talk smack about, but he was the best character in Rio.
And Jesse Eisenberg impressed me enough for me to learn how to spell his name. His macaw was like a young Woody Allen on a Saturday Night Live skit.

More of the same

Toronto’s weekly magazine EYE Weekly decided to transform itself into a new publication called The Grid. Why? I’m not sure, but the transformation has proven very disappointing on many fronts in this first issue. Instead of a true re-imagining of the magazine and all its potential, all that seems to have changed is a little of the layout, the size (now inconveniently larger) and the fonts, supposedly very unique, yet very undistinguishable from any other font style. Not even the pass-times or the horoscopes can be salvaged, and the feature article couldn’t be more cliché and unexciting: chefs in Toronto.  Here’s hoping they can find some meat to put in this empty grid.
These people's claim to looking so smug is that they 
cook pork really well.
