The night has finally come for Raptors fans. Tonight is the first night that the black and gold OVO-themed Drake jerseys are worn by the Raptors. The jerseys were announced prior to the season beginning, but they were waiting until “Drake Night” to test them out. The Raptors play Lebron James and the powerhouse Cleveland Cavaliers. Check the swag: The jerseys are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to “Drake Night”. The ACC will also have a “Hotline Bling Booth” where fans can dance around and take videos. Hotline Bling is one of the hottest songs in the […]

Looking for a Christmas gift? Buy your loved one a naked Stephen Harper!

Kijiji is pretty well-known for hosting some strange items over the years. You can literally buy and sell anything on there, as far as I can tell. But now, a former civil servant has listed what is either the weirdest or best item the site has seen, depending on your own opinion. [WARNING: GENITALS. There is a bit of a penis sticking into that painting. Be careful.] The artist is Margaret Sutherland. She says she created the piece as a way to vent her dissatisfaction about the Conservative government at the time. The painting caused quite a stir when she […]

Let’s be honest about Hart’s no phone rule

Comedian Kevin Hart was in Winnipeg just under a week ago. While I know people who went, laughed and had a good time, at least one person did not. Chris Devoin was kicked out for breaking Hart’s strict no phones policy . Devoin says he was simple using his phone’s flashlight app to check his seat number but security noticed and tossed him within minutes.     Some fans believe this is justified. I remember my friends who were going to the show saying, “If you’re going to spend over a hundred buck on a show like this why would […]

Sunday Study Break

It’s late Sunday afternoon and you might be doing some last minute homework. You’re not alone, it’s getting close to the end of the semester and all the projects are due. Here’s a few quick and easy things you can do and then get back to studying. 1) Go have a hot chocolate break – Seriously, it’ll get you moving and away from your work for a few minutes. You’ll refocus plus,  hot chocolate is delicious. 2) Go watch a couple of Youtube videos – But only a couple! Don’t get sucked into the Youtube vortex.  You don’t need to […]

Community Building at Holiday Time

The holiday season is upon us and there are two things I genuinely enjoy about this time of year: spending time with friends and family and shopping locally. Specifically, I love buying gifts for family and friends from local makers of jewellery, soap, cosmetics, preserves, toys, and even electronics. I’ve found some of the best gifts at sales like THIRD + BIRD and the now (unfortunately) defunct Holidaze Craft Show. And while I’ve bought amazing gifts like a handcrafted stereo made from an antique suitcase or a beautiful handmade teapot fired with the artist’s original glaze, what I really enjoy […]

Oh, Baby!

What’s the deal with parents-to-be constantly one-upping each other with their baby announcements? When my parents had me, they didn’t announce it. All of a sudden they just, like, had a kid. No one knew I’d be making my debut unless they happened to see my mom in her sweet 90’s maternity apparel. Part of that has to do with the times, specifically that the Internet was essentially nothing in 1993. But they didn’t even put it in the paper! Come to think of it… maybe I need to have a talk with my parents about celebrating the birth of […]

Aboriginal Arts Program May Be Getting More Funding

Winnipeg is a big arts city. We have the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, large writing communities, and a vibrant art scene. Which is why this news is so important. The federal government looks like it’s going to make good on its promise to give more money to the Canada Council of the Arts. And better yet, the Council is creating a fund run by indigenous people for indigenous artists. This is so important. We need as much representation as we can have. Having that sort of diversity in art allows us to excel as artists and create […]
