People on Facebook will do a ten day challenge, posting their favourite book, movie, song, etc. I tried a few times and trailed off. So when I was tagged to do a movies challenge, I declined but decided to make this list. It has been in the works for about a year and a half… Read More »
As I have stated multiple times, I have been a Whovian for a long time. I was a Whovian long, long, long before it was cool to be one! We have seen many iterations of Doctors in the past 55 years. Old ones, young ones, English ones, Scottish ones, Scots passing themselves off as English,… Read More »
I became a Doctor Who fan back in the early 70s. When I first started watching, Tom Baker was the current Doctor. Since then there has been many more doctors cycled through. I have engaged many Whovians over the years. Opinions vary with the various personalities. There is no wrong answer to the question. The… Read More »

Or sadly you did not have the luxury of doing that because you had to work. Well This year the celebrations are on a Saturday, so it truly is a Happy… Read More »

I had the distinct pleasure of being in the beautiful and historic old city of Quebec, just in time to attend their Comic Con! Of course I expected to see the usual Star Wars characters, Doctor Who(s), and miscellaneous comic book (anti)-heroes. It would appear the among the participants that Deadpool and Harley Quinn were… Read More »
To mark the 30th anniversary of the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium, Thunder Bay’s most famous citizen, Paul Shaffer, returned to his old stomping grounds to put on a show that electrified the audience. He assembled the old band, less drummer Anton Fig, who had a gig somewhere in the southern hemisphere, and announced that for… Read More »
“Hey Thunder Bay, are you ready to polka!?” Most acts roll into town prepared to rock out, but not Weird Al! He comes equipped with his accordion to polka the night away. The set list was replete with most of the standards we have come to love, including “Eat it!” and “Another one rides the… Read More »
