It's 1982 Michael Jackson's Thriller album just dropped. I'm five years old and from the first beat I instantly became his biggest fan. I hounded and annoyed my mom like any good five year old could and she finally got me the cassette tape. The only music I owned before that was Christmas with the Chipmunks which I played with no cares if it was Christmas or not on my Sears and Robuck record player. So now with my Fisher Price tape player in hand and the greatest album of all time I retreated to my playroom to be alone with the King of Pop. I lived and breathed Michael Jackson. I started a club at school, I rocked a replica Thriller and Beat It jacket, my room was adorned with posters and trading cards of Michael. Any time he was on tv I had to watch it no matter if it was past my bed...

An Open Letter to Corinth Theatre-Arts Hi. My name is James Strachan and I have been an active participant in Corinth Theatre-Arts on-and-off for the better part of 18 years. Over those years, I've done many things for this theater. I've been in countless shows. I've assisted in many productions. I've filled roles at the last minute. I've served on the board. I've even co-hosted the Maggies. The Maggies. The prestigious awards that put a neat little bow on a CT-A season. The awards that pat those of you on the back that have demonstrated spectacular performances, shows, or technical prowess in the past year. The awards that have, for so long, snubbed me and my hard work. For those of you that don't know, I have never won a Maggie. Despite all of my hard work, effort,...

Re: Faked Moon Landings Surely (?!) an artist, such as my father, whose profound degree of artistic integrity is self-evident, whose political/social consciousness is manifestly present in nearly every film he made. Whose highly controversial subject matter literally put his life at risk, and yet he continued to make the film’s he made … don’t you think he’d be the very last person EVER to assist the US Government in such a terrible betrayal of its people?!? There are many, very real conspiracies that have happened throughout our history, are happening presently, I’m only too aware of the dreadful manipulations perpetrated by governments, secret services, banksters, the military-industrial-complex etc.. But, claims that the moon landings were faked and filmed by my father? I just...

Please spare a few minute and read it till end. I am not supporting Mr. Salman Khan for what he had said…. What he said is wrong but each person has a different way of interpretation. The actor had even clarified later and tendered an apology. Today I happened to Read an article .. Haryana gangrape survivor sends notice to Salman, seeks Rs 10 crore damage A survivor of gangrape from Hisar on Saturday has served a Rs 10-crore damage notice on him while asking him to tender a public apology over his alleged remark about rape victims. I as a human being would just like to say or ask few thinks… Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution makes the “right to freedom of speech and expression” a fundamental right. Before I put my point I would like to say that No being on earth...

June 27, 2016 Dear CBC News Broadcasters, I, like many of your viewers, often have CBC News on in the background as I’m focusing on other tasks. I think a lot of Canadians would agree that much of your material makes great background noise. Last night marked the season six finale of Game of Thrones. Likely due to my divided attention, I must have missed the introduction of your guest and I hope I missed your announcement of “major spoiler alerts”. Either way, the segment went forward and the season finale of Game of Thrones was ruined for me. Admittedly, I’m furious about losing the surprise and emotional journey that this episode certainly would have brought me. What I’m more furious about is that you chose to broadcast a summary of arguably the biggest reveals and plot...

Dear Shirish Kunder, My name is Aneel Neupane and I’m a filmmaker. My team at Jazz Productions and I worked relentlessly to make our latest release BOB. We gave our blood and sweat to this project. With no well-known name to fund this project, we pleaded our friend Tejaswee Rajthala to produce the movie. With the budget of NRs. 50,000 (32,000 Indian Rupees) and a cast and crew who believed in the story so much that they volunteered, we were able to create this movie. We had it ready in October 2015. I had uploaded it on Vimeo as a private video to share it with close friends. You can see here (https://vimeo.com/145062291) that the video is 7 months old. On May 12, 2016, we finally released it on Youtube. As of right now, there are 3033 views. I know that’s not a lot of views but I...
