Trump for President!

                Have you heard about the new season of The Apprentice? The stakes are higher than ever now Donny himself has entered the ring!
                Donald Trump is in the running for President and that is amazing! Finally we’re getting some spice tossed into the salad of presidential candidates (and we needed it after Lincoln Chafee!). At this point the campaign which is still a year away has become one of the most promising in history. You can’t say it’s not going to be fun anymore! The guy who pretty much thought Obama’s re-election was the worst thing to ever happen to America now gets a chance to see if everyone else will get to feel the same about him! He’s going to dominate every debate with his loudness, pointed fingers, and toupee. It’s going to be the best thing since that Marx Brothers reunion where they all died!
                Trump will represent the needs of America and the little people, meaning those earning as little as 15 million dollars a year. He’ll fight for animal equality, to eliminate that exclusive endangered species club, allowing all creatures great and small the privilege of staring down the gun of one of his perennially smirking sons. He’s also expected to be fighting terrorists, Obamacare, and common sense. He wants to return America to its former greatness, something he made absolutely clear in his inaugural candidacy announcement when he made really racist remarks about Mexicans! That’s the great America we want, where foreigners are forced to build and pay for a giant wall to keep them out of their neighbouring country. What happened to those good old values? Way to go Trump! That nomination is in the bag!
                Of course Trump’s not going to become president, it’s ridiculous. The Republican Party’s not stupid enough to let him win the nomination, so this is all about the ride!  And what a ride it will be. This will be the most entertaining race for president in recent memory and I’m looking forward to it!

                Now let’s see Kevin O’Leary try to become Prime Minister!

Mary Tyler Moore's Best Moments

A couple days ago, we lost the icon Mary Tyler Moore. On the Mount Rushmore of groundbreaking comediennes, Moore has an undeniable place (with Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, and Cloris Leachman). She was often the best part of the Dick Van Dyke Show, making for half of one of the greatest TV couples. Through her own series, she was a key part of one of the most important and timeless shows of all time. Her kindness, perseverance, and good humour made her a role model for all, but especially women and girls whose greater representation in media she pioneered. She was such an endearingly sweet woman, a champion of diabetes research and a great philanthropist. When watching either of her classic shows, she always felt like a good friend. And now the world has lost that friend.
          In honour of her passing, I want to highlight just some of my favourite Mary Tyler Moore moments both as Laura Petrie and Mary Richards, that attest to what a great comedic and inspirational talen…

Disney Sundays: Moana (2016)

When I heard that the next Disney movie, Moana was going to be based around Hawaii, I was tempted to say, “haven’t we been here before?’ It doesn’t feel like too long ago that we had Lilo & Stitch. I was more curious though when I heard it would revolve around Hawaiian mythological figures like Maui and fantastical monsters. But then I remembered Ron Clements and John Musker were the directors behind Hercules and I worried. However I needn’t have, as Moana is easily the pair’s best film since Aladdin.
          A teenage girl called Moana, resident of a small isolated tribe on one of the Polynesian islands, is chosen by the ocean to be an emissary to the banished demigod Maui and convince him to return the Heart of the Sea (a small pounamu stone) to Te Fiti -the goddess he stole it from who’s cursed their world with famine as retribution.
          Though this is a standard and fittingly mythic hero's journey, the story is nonetheless an exciting one to follow due in…

Overlooked Specials 12th Day of Christmas

12th Day of Christmas:
Blackadder’s Christmas Carol This Christmas Day how about we dispense with the feels in favour of a mean but comedically genius one-off of Britain’s best series. Even if you’re unfamiliar with Blackadder, the series about a witty schemer reincarnated through various periods in British history, this special should still make you laugh. An inversion of A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Blackadder played of course to perfection by Rowan Atkinson is the kindest man in England which everyone uses to take advantage of him. But an encounter with a Spirit of Christmas causes him to change his ways. Most of the Blackadder cast: Atkinson, Tony Robinson as Baldrick, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Miranda Richardson appear here and are excellent, as are guests Miriam Margolyes, Jim Broadbent, and Robbie Coltrane in a role I’m sure inspired J.K. Rowling to request him for Hagrid. And the writing from Richard Curtis and Ben Elton is as sharp as ever. It’s relentlessly enjoyable, funny…
