There are few Canadian comedians operating on the same level as Mark Forward. He is an absurd storyteller and an unusual talent. His debut stand-up comedy album, Things I Thought Of, was released earlier this year. Forward is now self-producing comedy shows to claim ownership over his future as a performer.
Mark and I spoke over the phone from the UMFM studio to a pub in Toronto, ON. While Forward sipped on a pint of Guinness, we talked about the frivolous awards, morning radio shows and superfluous language.

The first thing you notice when you step off the elevator in Vancouver's Standard Building -- home of New Image College of Fine Arts -- is that this isn't quite the educational learning facility you're expecting. Backed by a lush, almost new age-feeling interior -- which serves as the sign in desk for both the in-house spa and the acting/esthetics school -- I suddenly wasn't sure what to expect. After all, when you're expecting a rather cold and business-like lobby and you get something out of the movies, you tend to be a bit taken off guard.

Have you ever wished you could be your favorite superhero or movie character at Halloween? Do you have dreams where you wished you were Hellboy or The Hulk or an undead zombie? I mean, really be those characters, not just wear a lame store-bought costume? What if I told you that there's a school in Vancouver that can not only transform you into whatever your imagination might dream up, but that they can also give you the skills to do it professionally?

Fans of comic Myq Kaplan (@myqkaplan on Twitter) will not be disappointed by his latest, Small, Dork and Handsome. Kaplan's unique style, a rapid-fire clever verbal assault on the audience, lines nearly overlapping one another, seems to have intensified since his previous, Meat Robot.

Yesterday the second trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy dropped after days of mini teasers and screenshots had been hitting the web. If the fans of the comic series weren't sold after that first trailer they are now. But the real test will be for all those non-fanboys out there, will this be a film that the average movie-goer would want to see? Before I make my case that the answer should be an emphatic "Hell YES!", first take a look at the new Guardians of the Galaxy below to judge for yourself:

It is hard sometimes to review something and not have it turn into an open love letter. That is the problem I have when it comes to discussing certain topics. I get that way with Christopher Nolan films, I get that way with episodes of How I Met Your Mother, I get it with anything related to Pink Floyd, and I also get it when I discuss anything to do with Devin Townsend.
