Now that it's December, I feel I can safely make an entry about the Child's Play Charity. The charity was started by Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, the creators of the Penny Arcade webcomic.
Since 2003 the charity has raised over $7 million in toys, games and "for real monies" for sick kids in children hospitals. And they are so very close to their $1.2 million goal this year, which they almost always exceed.
So if you have a few extra dollars left in your pocket after buying all your Christmas presents and are still somehow filled with the spirit of the season after braving the malls, why not … Read More
I would be thrilled to point your peepers at a double bill event going on in early December.
The second show is Modern Media, and is described as such:
"In this sequel to "Modern Man" we re-join Mark, an average guy trying to rid himself of the effects that advertising has on the everyday person. A complex dissection of today's media and it's dangerous future where you'll learn that with knowledge comes power. Don’t worry if you didn’t see Modern Man; this is a focused magnifying glass on our modern media."
There is a "Pay What You Can" preview of the shows on … Read More
I was lucky enough to interview Ra Ra Riot a few weeks back, but due to a minor deadline mixup the article wasn't published (No hard feelings, Mark). But here is an unedited version of the preview. Lucky you!
Chances are if you're interested in something like the Taboo Sex Show, you already know it's coming. But if you're like me, you're interested but the existence of such a show has somehow evaded you.
Taboo's first of four nights was tonight, where we all missed things like the Miss Taboo Fashion Show and Boy Toys Exotic Male Dancer Visha Loo Contortionist (Who will be reappearing every other night of the event).
But fret not, there's more! Bikini comps, pole dancing, a hypnotist and educational seminars. And let's not forget the loads of vendors (the real reason to go).
Taboo is being held at the Big Four Building at the Stampede Park and tickets are $15 at the door (unless you dress in your sexiest outfit on Friday, which will warrant $5 off and … Read More
Long time, no blog! Due to a move at the beginning of the month and a few SNAFU's, I've been left without the internet. So I'm taking one of the small handfuls of opportunities I have to let you all know about a few things.
"THE HORROR: A group show of miniature die-o-ramas" will be at Bird Dog Video this Thursday from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. I imagine if you have a taste for the macabre and refreshments, then you will enjoy this.
If you haven't seen it yet, Catfish is still playing at Eau Claire Market. This movie took me completely by surprise and I don't think I've seen anything as well done as this in a while. I'm still doubting the validity of their claims that the documentary is real, but that didn't stop me … Read More
