Live Sports Are Back and So Is Toronto

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

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. […]

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

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 […]

4 Films That Are About The ✨ Vibes✨

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 […]

5 Restaurants on Ryerson Campus You Need to Visit

[Image Credit: @ryerson_u ] It’s safe to say that not spending time on campus at Ryerson this year has left many restaurants nearby that rely on foot traffic from students and nearby offices to thrive, in need of support.

Jesus of Suburbia: A Metaphor for the Five Stages of Grief?

Dearly beloved, are you listening? Green Day’s 2004 rock opera Jesus of Suburbia is an explosive and cathartic nine minutes of pure punk rock angst and killer guitar riffs. Composed of 5 separate parts that all come together to tell a cohesive story, Jesus of Suburbia is about a scrappy kid trying to escape the trappings of suburban life and flee to the city. Coincidentally, I’m a scrappy kid trying to escape the trappings of suburban life and flee to the city! I’ve been listening to it a whole lot more recently. On my latest re-listen, I noticed that each […]

5 Highly Underrated Broadway Musicals That You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

If you know me, you also know that I am a huge lover of musicals and if you ever see me with my headphones in, chances are I’m playing a Rodgers and Hammerstein album or a newly-released Broadway recording.

Here are 5 little-known musicals that are truly works of art.  1. Little Me Image credit: theatermania.com I’m a huge fan of musical comedies and this show, which was first performed in 1962 with […]

Top 5 Most Sing-able Disney Songs

As a part 2 from my previous article “Top 5 Most Rewatchable Disney Movies,”  I will now list the top 5 most whole chest-ing-ly, sing-able Disney songs. Once again, this is based on my personal favourite songs and what I like to sing at the top of my lungs; pretending that I can actually sing. This list will look into the Disney princess songs rather than Disney as a whole, and I have decided to not mention any of the songs from Tarzan (as stated in the previous article, ALL the songs are insanely wonderful and I can’t choose!). 5.
