The 10 greatest moustaches in film and television history (plus a few more)

Posted by: Paul Little  //  November 4, 2015 @ 4:24am

Moustaches: the symbol of manliness. While in recent years, it appears moustaches have tragically gone "out of style", there should be little doubt that in their heydey, they were the ultimate fashion statement for men.

Walkey Talk: End Of An Era, personally speaking

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  June 2, 2015 @ 7:52pm

One of my favorite moments during Dave Letterman's final few weeks was Norm Macdonald's tearful salute. As he was performing a standup routine during one of Dave's last shows, he told a story of seeing Letterman do stand up when he was a kid which made MacDonald want to go into comedy. He capped off the routine telling a joke he heard Dave say that night all those years ago.

Walkey Talk: I'd Like To Buy The World A Series Finale

Posted by: Michael Walkey  //  May 25, 2015 @ 7:50pm

I was at a lounge last Saturday night. A well dressed man in his early twenties was sitting at a nearby table and I overheard him ordering an Old Fashioned because "That's what Don Draper drinks!"

Full disclosure upfront: the first stand-up comedy CD I ever purchased and listened to multiple times over was Demetri Martin's 2006 debut , These Are Jokes. I bought the CD while on a road trip to Minneapolis to see a concert, and listened to the album multiple times on the 8-hour drive home.

A Walkthrough of New Image College and New Image Entertainment

Posted by: Mark McLeod  //  July 21, 2014 @ 1:47am

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.

Top Fives: Homages

Posted by: S.P. Young  //  May 13, 2014 @ 12:30am

One of the reasons why popular works of fiction remain well known through the ages is because they get homaged in later works of fiction. Homages are done to pay respect to these original works. When a movie or a television show is homaged, it keeps the original relevant, jewelry importer and fans of the original are usually glad to see the homage.
