i used to write, i used to write letters i used to sign my name, i used to sleep at night before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain
check out my latest TIFF film review of The King’s Speech
, starring wet-shirt-Darcy, aka Colin Firth, and unfortunate-schnozz-Aussie, aka Geoffrey Rush. some people have said i look like Helena Bonham Carter, who is also in this film, therefore she is the hottest Tim Burton wife ever.
also check out my TIFF film review of Julian Schnabel’s Miral, starring Freido Not-A-Palestinian Pinto. this was a terrible, shit-eating film. i’ve seen better acting in Tough-Actin-Tinactin.
and the CBC TIFF crew, which includes yours truly, posted a response to a recent NYTimes article, listing Toronto’s top style spots. None of us had ever been to any of those locales, so we fashioned our own list. Check out my choices, amongst the rest of the CBC TIFF team.
