have it your way, baby!

have we got a deal for you!!
first of all, a big thanks to those of you who have downloaded "conversion" from vimeo! we've been
thrilled to see that so many people have been interested in watching our little film that could.

recently, vimeo has made some changes to their "on demand" service and we've decided to adjust the settings for "conversion" accordingly. here's the deal:

up until this week, the video on demand service only allowed for paid streaming. so far $5usd, you could were purchasing a feed that remained active for six months. within those months, you could watch the movie as many times as you could possibly imagine, until you set some kind of bizarre world record for number of times watching "conversion". [note :: it would be a pretty significant number of times to compete with dom, who can recite the entire script, with sound effects, backward.]

but now, things be different. now, vimeo have a download option. and we've decided to take advantage of that.

you will still be able to stream if you'd prefer not to clutter up your hard drive or make a lifetime commitment to loving us. it will still cost $5, but from now on, the stream will only remain active for three months. to all those of you who have purchased a stream already, of course, it will remain active for the full six months you were guaranteed. so basically, if you were among the first to buy in, you get three bonus months. [call now and we'll also include this wonderful 100% cruelty-free cat hair sleep mask!! you just pay extra shipping and handling!] [you should probably take your meds now. -ed.]

however, if you'd rather not bother with a temporary arrangement and would like to welcome "conversion" into your home for the long haul, you can now download the film for $10. no cut off date, no having to renew. for just $10, it's yours forever.

once again, the link to make the purchase is right here. operators are standing by.

[awesome conversion shamwow imagery by dom, of course.]

so hip it hurts

there aren't too many artists who stand out as being iconically canadian. it's too easy to mistake us for some other people, mostly americans, who are, let's be honest, pretty similar in a lot of ways. [this is the bit where i apologise for avril lavigne, justin bieber and drake.] the guess who/ bachman turner overdrive held sway over an earlier generation, and musicians and those who appreciate technical proficiency will speak of rush like they are gods, but last night the country said goodbye to perhaps the most canadian of canadian bands, the tragically hip.

for those of you not familiar with that name, the hip emerged in the mid-to-late eighties, among a slew of canadian bands [54-40, the northern pikes, the pursuit of happiness, the grapes of wrath] that balanced on the line between mainstream and alternative rock. all of them played accessible guitar-based music with none of the bombast of seventies dinosaurs, but equally with no hint of the drug-fueled anger that w…

shut up

general reaction seems to be that last night's vice presidential debate was close to a draw, with a slight edge going to mike pence [other than among cnn's panel of independent voters, who overwhelmingly chose tim kaine as the winner]. i feel that's an accurate assessment, although it's largely a question of personal preference. pence absolutely projected the stoic, unflappable, unwavering image that many americans [not just republicans, either] seem to like and equate with strength. for my part, i prefer someone who's a little more mercurial, someone who's able to gets excited about ideas and who's able to expand on them, not just repeat talking points.

so, from my point of view, both vice presidential candidates were pretty disappointing. i found that kaine had a fantastic command of facts and history- he knew pence's voting record better than pence knew his and possibly better than pence knew his own. his opening answers were so smoothly delivered i…

mental health mondays :: parabnormal?

for north america and parts of europe, halloween marked the apex of spooky events, where the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead was at its most diaphanous. but if you're a very traditional roman catholic, you'll know that the 31 of october is merely the beginning, and that the entire month that follows is dedicated to remembering and praying for the dead, specifically for those whose souls are trapped in purgatory. if you listen to dante, purgatory isn't especially pleasant. sure, there's the possibility that you'll end up working off your debt to celestial society, but until then, you get to endure things like having your goddamned eyes sewn shut with iron wire. [much like condo developments, it gets better the higher the floor you live on.]

however, the more common view of purgatory among catholics is that the souls relegated there can't do anything to help themselves, and are reliant on the prayers of their living relatives and loved ones to …
