I don’t know much about sports, and even less about Canadian sports. But a funny guy? That crosses all national borders and cultural boundaries. And Jay Onrait, one half of TSN’s Canadian Sports Centre, is freaking hilarious. This supercut of Onrait and his desk partner Dan O’Toole’s “greatest hits” make them look like the most fun guys ever to hang out with. Also, I like the cut of his mustache jib. Canadians! Who knew?

The restricted trailer for “Ted,” Seth MacFarlane’s feature film directing debut, was released recently and damn, does it look ridiculous. Mark Wahlberg plays John, a man who lives with his childhood teddy bear brought to life, Ted (voiced by MacFarlane). When John falls in love with Lori (Mila Kunis), he’s forced to grow up. That otherwise basic, wacky premise is, of course, told through MacFarlane’s brand of raunchy, offensive humor — Ted smokes from a bong, John rattles off dozens of “white trash names” like lightening, etc. Personally, I can’t wait.
It’s possible that nobody was smart enough to come up with an all-pug parody of Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony’s 1995 hit “First of Tha Month,” until now. But I prefer to think that the world just simply wasn’t ready for this much genius back then, and so we had to wait until we really deserved it. [Vimeo]
A friend of mine posted this on her Facebook wall this morning. I’m not sure if she was the one who snapped it, or if she grabbed if off of someone else’s wall, but either way, this little bit of guerrilla graffiti espouses a simple truth about advertising and marketing.
In my opinion, Woody Allen films are hit or miss. I either love them or hate them. I was personally a big fan of “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “Midnight In Paris.” “To Rome With Love” looks like it may be another quirky winner with an all-star cast. It follows several characters on their romantic escapades through Rome. But then again … this may be just another stop on Woody’s European film tour. I guess we shall see on June 22. Thoughts?
I saw ”Titanic” 10 times in 1997 when it came out in the theaters. Granted, I was 19 and living in Florence, Italy and I had a lot of time on my hands (clearly, since I spent more than 31 hours staring at it over a 12-week period), but it was a good movie.
Sure, now it seems cheesy and silly in parts — “I’m the king of the world!” — but I was still first in line on the opening day of “Titanic 3D.” It did not disappoint. Even though I am older and wiser now, I have been in love (I hadn’t then), and I generally think dying for someone you have known three days is kind of dumb (why couldn’t they BOTH get on that damn door?), it’s still a romantic weep-fest. Sigh.
Here are five reasons to see “Titanic 3D.” Read more…
