We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down at the Rock and Roll Club

After breaking down on the highway coming back from Rochester, NY, only to be brought to the nearest Tim Horton's by the CAA tow-truck driver - with his family following in the cruiser of a Good Samaritan Sûreté du Québec officer - Prince Palu was convinced it was fate's way of having some fun in granting him a brand new Toyota Camry. It wasn't. $430 and a new alternator later, Palu is back home and ready to tell you about some great live music options this weekend.

We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down at the Rock and Roll Club

Prince Palu found himself spinning in all different directions this week with term paper research, pediatrician appointments, and out-of-town family functions, so this edition of "What's Happening?" is lighter in words than normal. It is, however, one of the most important weeks in the Montreal calendar. We have survived what will go down as the coldest February in our recorded history, and in honour of that, here are some ways to celebrate as this month fades into a memory and gives way to March.

The 2015 Academy Awards: A Thinkpiece for your Thinkpiece, but Not Really.

In a world torn by conflict, inequality and uncertainty, we once again reach that time of year where one perennial certainty remains: the endless parade of pageantry and self-congratulation which captures the heart of us all. The ~Academy Awards~


What's Happening?

We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down at the Rock and Roll Club

As all of his Chinese brothers and sisters get set to celebrate their New Year holiday, Prince Palu is beginning to wonder if, as many experts claim, China is set to become the next global world empire at sometime during the next 85 years, give or take, will the Chinese New Year one day simply become known as New Year. Given that the holiday in the People's Republic of China is a seven day long affair, Palu could get behind the idea of a week off at the end of January or beginning of February. It would be a welcome addition to his hibernation schedule. Until that day he wishes you all a Happy Chinese New Year and offers these thoughts about the weekend.

'50 Shades of Grey' maintains integrity of novel and that is a very very bad thing

Anastasia or Ana (Dakota Johnson) has already met the man of her dreams, Christian Gray (Jamie Dornan), when she awakes in his bed after he “rescued” her from being drunk at a club. Ignoring the red flags of his already insatiable desire to control her actions, her thoughts and her life, on her bedside table instructive notes are arranged as a faint evocation of the vials Alice comes face with in Wonderland. Even on a level of subconscious, we understand the written commands on paper as an invitation into the world of perversion and secrets, and it is a journey that Ana willingly undertakes - or so it seems. This initial moment of accepting fantasy, of diving into the abyss of sexual discovery are very quickly discarded.


That time I Lost My Oscar Pool

The Oscars are the Superbowl of events at our workplace. My colleagues and I have seen every single movie, have quoted Whiplash one to many times and have gotten into critical debates about American Sniper. So the time came around to predict the nominees on paper in every single category and here I am hoping my predictions for costume or for set design would not hurt my overall score. The morning came of the live televised nominations - and you know that they are live because no one has had their coffee yet and Dick Pope's name get's mispronounced. Our bookie for the event has been sick and we just got back our results  of the first round of nominations last week.

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' is deceptively charming

I was not looking forward to Kingsman: The Secret Service. When I first heard that it was adapted from a comic book miniseries by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Nemesis,Wanted,  Marvel's Civil War) my stomach churned. I've definitely enjoyed director Matthew Vaughn's (2004's Layer Cake, 2011's X-Men: First Class) work in the past. Still, my experience with Millar's portfolio has been plagued by interesting concepts that often get buried under too much juvenile blood n' guts excess to stick the landing and deliver on their initial promise.
