“Ron Perlman returns as Hellboy for awesome reason”

Wow, this is terrific. Ron Perlman has always come across as a big teddy bear, and acts like this prove my suspicions. Offering a surprisingly warm start to another week of cold show business news, Ron Perlman instantly became one of the nicest celebrities you know by agreeing to reprise his role as Hellboy—not for […]

Music is Life

For three years of my university life, I worked at Toronto’s best record store. To this day, it’s the worst-paying but most fun job I’ve ever had. Everyone gets excited when they talk about the music they love.

I’ve hoarded that tape ever since, assuming the performance would be forever lost to history otherwise, but I didn’t count on the rise of YouTube.
