Where's Waldo?

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Friday, March 11, 2011,
Upon arriving at St. Ignatius School in Guelph this morning to catch a glimpse at the Prime Minister's speech on science and technology I found myself directly behind the black car entourage also pulling into the school's parking lot. I tried to act like I was with them, but the silver van didn't fit in. I was told to park on the street. It was wet and rainy and I finally got into the school soaked and somewhat resembling a drowned rat - an enthusiastic, drowned rat. There were two desks in f...

'Cause Everyone Knows It's Stephen's...Last Night In Town

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Friday, March 11, 2011,

The ideal news reporter is as unbiased as possible when covering stories. Right? Right. Well. Okay. I wouldn't mind trying out news, it looks like a challenging yet fun job and I would be proud to get the chance to be a news broadcaster. It's difficult though, being a rather convicted person when it comes to politics. We have a news assignment due this Monday and we are supposed to go grab a clip from someone, and not just anybody on the street but someone who has the goods on whatever story ...

Speigel Im Speigel (Mirror In Mirror)

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Tuesday, March 8, 2011,
"Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream." Ingmar Bergman

I learn something new everyday. If I'm lucky two! But today, I learned a bit more about the vast world of filmmakers: a topic that could never be completely covered. A friend of mine sent me an email containing the link to one of director Andrei Tarkovsky's movie clips set to the music of Arvo Part. Tarkovsky is fro...

The Royal City

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Monday, March 7, 2011,

I live in Guelph. I moved to this city back in 2002 for one major reason: the music. Previously I had been in Montreal, which is also a great town for music, but not so good for an anglophone trying to work while attending school. I had been thinking about moving back to Ontario for a while and when a good friend of mine introduced me to Guelph's Hillside Festival the summer of 2001, I knew I was home. There are few moments in life that you can travel back to as if you never left. The first F...

Proof That (Robert) Random Exists

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Saturday, March 5, 2011,
I have this friend, Doug. He's a philosophy major turned refrigeration repair man (the big ones, like at Zehr's). He's 56 years old. I can't remember the first time I met him, but I used to work as a cook at the Albion and he has been a regular there for more years than I've been alive. Close enough. I've long since stopped working there but we still get together weekly to drink a few beers and talk about nothing. It's like Seinfeld but in Guelph and at a bar, not a cafe. My hair isn't quite ...

Coming To A Fake Screen Near You!

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Friday, March 4, 2011,
I had the pleasure of watching a video that some fellow classmates made for their Creativity class presentation yesterday. It's about Brainstroming, so what did they do? They made a movie trailer, for a movie called....you got it: Brainstorming. Normally when it's presentation day I try to make myself a nice breakfast, pack lots of treats, listen to my favourite music before I head out - anything to inundate myself with good stuff - 'cause presentations are usually either boring, ill-prepared...

As It Happens...To Your Body

Posted by Emily Gleeson on Friday, March 4, 2011,
On CBC's "As It Happens" tonight host Jeff Douglas played some unique clips about how radio broadcasters are "subject to the whims of our stupid bodies". (Here's the link: http://www.cbc.ca/video/news/audioplayer.html?clipid=1828186799 Go to 23.30 minutes. His intro was great as he confessed his own career nightmares. Then he aired the tragic yet brave attempt by Australian Kate Wilson to deliver the weather and news while going through a very severe attack of the hic ups. It was painfully fu...
