Today in the National Post, as part of our monthly series on Toronto’s streets, I examine the changing face of Church Street.
In today’s National Post, I take a look at a few movies in theatres today: Untraceable, They Wait, and Deep Sea. Only one is worth checking out. Also, earlier this month I talked to Daniel Maté. You’ve probably never heard of him, but he’s a Canadian who’s carved out a niche as one of New York’s top hip-hop karaoke emcees. And he’s a ridiculously cool musical theatre composer to boot.
From one comic book legend to another: yesterday it was Stan Lee, today I talk to Montreal’s Julie Doucet about her new book, 365 Days.
In today’s National Post, I talk to the curator and artists involved in the Stan Lee tribute show in Los Angeles.
I interviewed Maria Tippett at the end of November about her new biography of photographer Yousuf Karsh. The story runs today.
I was at the Oscar Peterson tribute on Saturday. Here’s my report.
I met with Christine Fellows last month at the Rivoli, when the Winnipeg singer-songwriter was in town for a concert. My article about Fellows and her amazing new record, Nevertheless, is in today’s paper. I don’t think I really was able to convey how good the album is; though I guess it’s a short profile, not a music review. I would have loved to talk to her longer, but I had to run to go interview Hannah Montana…
How is it 2008 already?
A couple of things in the paper today; last month I spent a couple of days back in Oshawa and caught Cuff the Duke’s homecoming show. Here’s what I wrote about it. Also, our series of Cultural Lessons ends today, and the last of the three essays I wrote is in the paper.
