Book Vs. Movie: The Hunger Games

Friday, April 6th, 2012

I finally had a chance to see The Hunger Games movie and thought I’d do up a quick post on book vs. film. No spoilers here, either! I’m glad I read the book so close to seeing the movie so a lot of things were fresh in my mind. I filled my husband in on […]

Obligatory post about The Hunger Games

Friday, March 30th, 2012

I picked up the first Hunger Games book a few months ago after reading about a few people I follow online really enjoying it. I put it off and with the movie coming out (well, it’s out now), decided to power through it two days before the movie release just in case I ended up […]

Slang as a form of poetry? Absofuckinglutely!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Great insight into the history and usage of slang– it ain’t all bad! My editor at the time was very excited I used “absofuckinglutely” as part of the headline. Perhaps not in the best taste, but when have I ever adhered to something like good taste?;) Slang: The People’s Poetry Michael Adams Oxford University Press […]

Kathy Reichs gives out 206 Bones to tide you over

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

I absolutely love the show Bones. I’m a sucker for those types of shows, but I can say that Bones is much different than the rest of the CSI and CSI clones that I love so much. I’ve only ready two of Kathy Reich’s books (this one and Spider Bones), but I found them a […]

The Bitchin’ Kitchen is not your mother’s cookbook

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Usually I wouldn’t review a cookbook, but Nadia G is pretty awesome. In terms of cooking, she is pure rock ‘n’ roll. She was also incredibly friendly to speak with. Here’s a review of her cookbook from 2009. Nadia Giosia hopes to bring a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll to the otherwise bland world […]

PostSecret unites us through shared secrets

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

This is a great interview I did with Frank Warren of PostSecret. I’ve been a loyal follower for years and speaking with him was a very nice experience. He’s very passionate about what he does and also very friendly and open. I also think his work for suicide prevention is inspiring. Check out the interview […]

Wetlands: erotic literary classic or masturbation pamphlet?

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Here’s a book review of Charlotte Roche’s Wetlands, a very NSFW book. While it’s pretty gross, the author does convey some interesting ideas and ways of thinking that I thought were worth going through the TMI stuff for. Wetlands Charlotte Roche HarperCollins 229 pages $22.99 CAD Charlotte Roche is known in Germany as a television […]

Rumrunners book review – 2009

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Well, here’s another one from the vaults! The end of the article mentions a book launch. Obviously you can’t go to it anymore, unless you’re a time traveller, but let me assure you that it was awesome. I sat on the floor because there were so many people there to listen to Marty Gervais read. […]

Scott Thompson takes on the graphic novel

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Scott Thompson’s phone isn’t cooperating as well as it should as he speaks with me from Los Angeles. He always opts for cheap phones when he’s down there. “I get one of those drug dealer phones that are disposable, but I’m always having people call me constantly,” Thompson explained. “It’s kind of a scam. You […]

Book Review: Marty Gervais’ Afternoons with the Devil

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Afternoons with the Devil: Growing up Catholic in a Border Town Marty Gervais Mosaic Press 102 pages $17.95 CDN No wonder Marty Gervais’ latest book Afternoons with the Devil: Growing up Catholic in a Border Town is on its second printing after being released in December 2010. Although the collection of short stories focuses on […]
