TIFF 2019: Joker Is Not Profound

The Joker

Apologies to incel film Twitter, but Joker isn’t that special a movie.

Sarah saw the film when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and determined that there’s probably Joker fanfiction that’s better done.

Behind The Music At Toronto Maple Leafs Games

If you’ve been watching the Toronto Maple Leafs this year you’ll know that every time they score a goal a Hall & Oates song blasts through the home rink in celebration.

Getting to be the official goal song for a pro hockey team is a real honour. But just getting on the in-game playlist in any capacity is just as big.

I spoke to the Arkells, The Sheepdogs, USS and the staff at MLSE about what’s involved in having a successful jock jam.

TIFF 2019: Honey Boy Is A Complex Work From Shia LaBeouf

Honey Boy

Shia LaBeouf’s new film Honey Boy charts the relationship and eventual fallout between a child star and his father.

It’s a deep, complex piece that almost sheds any association with Michael Bay from LaBeouf’s resume.

Sarah reviewed the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival for Consequence of Sound.

Writing Explained On The I Never Told You What I Do Podcast

I Never Told You What I Do For A Living podcast

Writing is kinda balls.

Sure, if you’re Rory Gilmore it’s easy and wonderful and all, but for most of the world it’s low-paying, low-reward bullshit.

Why would anyone want to be a writer? Who knows?

But someone, specifically, the I Never Told You What I Do For A Living podcast, asked Sarah what her experience as a writer is like.

To listen to her episode go here.

(It’s also available at many other reputable podcast distro destinations as well if you’re not an Apple person.)
