February 13th

Hi reader! Here are my blog bullets for this monday spent at Film Buff:

  • Had a great weekend on Salpspring Island, as usual. Interviewed Elizabeth May!!
  • The West Side Story movie  is very racist and mildly sexist.
  • Reader supported newspaper columns are totally amusing. Check out the Valentines in Seattles (only) newspaper The Stranger.
  • Lucky is the first person to spy the biggest muffin out of the oven.
  • Another huge reason I love The Stranger: Savage Love by Dan Savage. I used to really love reading these every time I stepped on the train. I just read every column published in the last year. Another one I really found interesting as hell was Sasha‘s column Love Bites.
  • The US Vs. John Lennon is a great documentary! Watch the trailer here

Sister Mary Ashta Covers the RIOT Act

Every Thursday at 5pm, the Reverend Terence rips up the CHLY airwaves with his presentation of rare, interesting, and obscure tracks. He calls it The RIOT Act!  On January 26th I was fortunate enough to guest host the show.

For two hours, I branded myself Sister Mary Ashta and “covered” the show. The theme? Unlikely covers. Grouped into genres, I had a blast doing this show! Check out all past episodes of The RIOT Act here.
