Elwy Yost – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elwy_Yost As a cable avoider, I only get a handful of snow-free channels on the rabbit ears, but thankfully one of these is TVO. I’ve rediscovered my forgotten childhood habit of watching Saturday Night at the Movies and all of the related pre- and post-movie interviews, which are invariably hosted by Elwy Yost. As Canadians, […]

Pigasuss reviews – StumbleUpon

http://pigasus.stumbleupon.com/review/24213665/ From the page: “Members of a fundamentalist American church group planning to stage a protest at the funeral for a Winnipeg man brutally killed on a Greyhound bus have managed to enter Canada, a spokeswoman told CBC News on Friday.” For once, I’m hoping Canadians get their impression of America from the likes of […]

CBC.ca – Arts – Film – The Plight of the ‘Peg

http://www.cbc.ca/arts/film/winnipegjets.html I watched this “art-house documentary” (read: bizarrely edited and off-puttingly assembled found clips) on the death of the Winnipeg Jets hockey franchise.

Read this and see if you can identify: I can always tell when it’s really cold because my headphone wires freeze. They assume a shape and won’t budge. As a result, today I’m issuing a frozen headphone wire alert for all Toronto residents.
