The Toronto International Film Festival has unveiled the top 10 Canadian features and short films for the 13th annual Canada's Top Ten Film Festival.
HBO Home Entertainment showcased its 2014 schedule at Gastown restaurant the Diamond, last night (December 2).
Not surprisingly, the cocktail parlour was decorated with Game of Thrones-themed items. Since the first episode aired back in April 2011, the bloody fantasy drama has taken its place at the very pinnacle of HBO’s roster.
Hence, there were two White Walkers posing for photo ops and a small candlelit room where you could have your runes read by a local psychic.
Each of the GoT houses, meanwhile, was represented by a themed drink. I went with the House Stark which featured a mix of three rums, orange, lime, winter spice, and amontillado sherry. That’s why I’m writing this drunk.

Metro Vancouver man identified in alleged homophobic attack Vancouver police have identified a 45-year-old Burnaby man for an alleged attack on a lesbian couple kissing on a bus in Vancouver in September. The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been laid yet.
So much of James Franco's work is gay-related that you'd almost think he's straight or something.
On that queer note, Franco and Seth Rogen, while shooting the film The Interview, decided to recreate Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video for no apparent reason.
Franco (obviously a top) plays West while Rogen plays, understandably, a bottom: Kim Kardashian.
Poet, author, and activist Amber Dawn has won this year’s City of Vancouver Book Award, according to a city hall media release sent out today. She receives the honour, along with a $2,000 cash prize, for How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler’s Memoir, published by Arsenal Pulp Press.

There have been some battles won in the U.S. California's Prop 8 was struck down in June. Illinois and Hawaii have recently legalized gay marriage.
Anyhow, here's what children think of the matter.
Some of the funniest lines involve comments about the eating habits of men and Justin Bieber.

The highly contagious disease can lead to blindness, hearing loss, neurological problems, and can potentially be fatal.
Last week, actor Alec Baldwin’s weekly MSNBC talk show Up Late was suspended for two weeks after TMZ published a video in which the actor appears to call a paparazzo a “cocksucking fag.” Baldwin, who was trying to drive the photographer away from his family, later apologized. He also denied using the word “fag” at all.
While Mr. Baldwin should probably wash his mouth out with soap, the timing and length of his suspension is suspicious. Now missing from MSNBC’s schedule is Baldwin’s November 22 program dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination.
