An Evening With Silk Sonic - Album Review Posted on December 2, 2021 After over eight months since the release of the duo’s hit single, ‘Leave The Door Open’, pop icon Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak have come together for, ‘An Evening With Silk Sonic’, narrated by the legendary 70s Bootsy Collins.If I’m being honest, I don’t know if I would have been excited for, or have even listened to this album if it were made by anyone else. When it comes to more straight up throwback projects as opposed to experimenting on a genre or period in music, I

How to Judge Books By Their Covers Posted on November 26, 2021 Like many other queer kids, when I was younger I was obsessed with Glee. It was the first show I ever watched that showed multi-faceted queer characters, and I remember really connecting to Kurt, Blaine, Santana and Brittany. Another obsession ensued when I discovered Rupaul’s Drag Race. Something in the campy performances and over the top runways stuck with me, and I idolized queens like Bob the Drag Queen and Katya. These characters and performers were people I could relate to and look up to, slowly helping me feel comfortable

4 Moments When Movies Turn into ASMR Posted on November 25, 2021 After months of nail-biting worthy anticipation, Taylor Swift has finally released Red (Taylor’s Version) on November 12, 2021. If you were anything like me, the release of Red in 2012 completely changed the trajectory of your life forever. While it is bittersweet saying goodbye to Red, this re-recorded version offers a new sense of polish, momentum, and purpose. Red (Taylor’s Version) also allows fans to rest easy while being fully aware that we can enjoy an album that Taylor Swift has once again taken rightful ownership of. With

How to Judge Books By Their Covers Posted on November 26, 2021 I judge books by their covers. Unashamedly. And I’m pretty sure you do too. Book covers are super important in getting readers’ attention, and once it does, you’ll find that they can tell you a lot about what’s in the book- like a lot. As I’ve been reading more and more this year, I’ve begun to notice some trends and design choices in book cover art that make it immediately obvious not only what the book genre will be, but also some significant plot details without ever reading

4 Moments When Movies Turn into ASMR Posted on November 24, 2021 I must say ASMR videos can be polarising. Some people search up ASMR videos on YouTube almost every night before going to bed while others find watching a person making random noises and sounds weird or sometimes sexual. I myself think that ASMR is a really interesting medium or art that definitely has its place in the world. For those of you who don’t yet know what ASMR is, here’s the definition: ASMR refers to “autonomous sensory meridian response”, a tingling sensation from the scalp and downward that

But sometimes it isn’t always the easiest to find these businesses on the Internet. That’s why Kerin John created an Instagram page to showcase local Black-owned businesses called “Black Owned Toronto.” The success of the page has even allowed them to open

Live Sports Are Back and So Is Toronto Posted on November 20, 2021 When I came back to Toronto in late August, the first thing I did was go and see a few Jays games with my friend. Finally being able to see live sports with a big crowd after well over a year was incredible and for the first time since I’d moved here for school, Toronto felt alive. When you walk down the streets on game days you’ll see hundreds of people in jerseys and shirts and hats heading to see the game and it’s something that the

4 Films That Will Make You Want To Drop Everything and Travel Abroad Posted on November 19, 2021  When lockdown started almost two years ago I found myself watching a lot more movies than I had previously. Looking back now, I noticed that many of these films took place in picturesque locations like the Italian countryside. At a time where I was stuck inside and clearly not going to be travelling for a while, these films acted as an escape from reality.Fortunately, our lockdown restrictions have almost entirely lifted, however, travelling still feels a bit out of reach. Also, with

The Way We Vote Sucks, But It Doesn’t Have To

The Way We Vote Sucks, But It Doesn’t Have To No message could be any clearer. Posted on November 18, 2021 We came, we saw, we voted…and pretty much nothing changed. The 2021 election came and went with nothing to show for it except an almost identical parliament and 600 million dollars wasted. With polarization on the rise thanks to a laundry list of factors (politicians recycling the same tired messaging, the incredible strain of a global pandemic, and your uncle’s questionable Facebook rants), the Canadian electorate is veering closer and closer to stagnation due to how we vote.  Photo

Picturesque Spots in Toronto to Take Photos With Your Friends Posted on November 17, 2021 In 2017, UNESCO named Toronto as the first Canadian city to be a Creative City of Media Arts for its leadership in film, music, digital media, and forms of cultural expression using technology. Being part of The Creative School, we get to see and experience this creativity everyday during class and on campus. While a lot of our classes are still being held virtually, there’s no reason to stay cooped up inside when there’s so much to see in the city. With that being said,

Movies That Will Bring You Back to the Cinemas Posted on November 16, 2021 How long has it been since you sat in a partial-reclining chair surrounded by its leather material, eyes facing forward with a 90x30ft cinema screen flashing back at you? Sitting in eager anticipation for the opening credits of a film you’ve been waiting for to start rolling. How long has it been since you felt the explosion within a film through the surround sound system in your local cineplex? How long has it been since you’ve been to the movie theaters? For me, it had been nearly

So we’ve all watched movies that are action packed, fast paced, and move from one scene to the next at breakneck speed. Who hasn’t? The Avengers, Fast and Furious, Knives Out, and Tenet are just a few that require your attention, moving from point A to B to C without a moment to lose. There’s a lot to love about films that have you glued to your seat, even if you have to go to the bathroom really badly. But recently, I’ve started getting into films that slow you down, films that sometimes meander and wander aimlessly. These movies aren’t about
