Wrap-up

Weekly Wrap-up May 6th 2018

It’s been a crazy week for Kanye. But there has been more to the week than the Kayne West thing… we also had an *NSYNC reunion, a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ making of videos, some new trailers including one for 13 Reasons Why and some really great sports stuff. Like always get in touch and let me know what you think 🙂

Music

Celine x Deadpool

🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦. A littl Ryan Reynolds. A little Celine. A lot of Canadian Pride.

Anne-Marie “Friends”

Anne-Marie is slowly becoming a favourite of mine. She has always been someone who performs like she is telling a story – there is an authenticity behind her that I appreciate.  I wondered if this was her ‘act’ or real – but after hearing the story behind FRIENDS – I buy into the fact that she is an authentic singer/songwriter.

The Middle – Diary of a Song

I really enjoy going behind the scenes of songs. Genius does a great job – but the New York Times has been stepping up their game and have been bringing in some great ‘how that song was made’ content. The Middle is a massive song right now and seeing how this comes together is truly amazing.

Shawn Mendes ft. Khalid – Youth

Another new single from Shawn Mendes – this time he’s partnering with Khalid. Solid choice Shawn. I’m into it.

TV

Why Sports Sound Better At Home

Shoutout to all the wonderful audio recorders, sound technicians, boom operators and all the other wonderful ‘sound guys*’ I’ve had the pleasure of working with. These people make our TV shows that much better – and make our sports even better.  Also ‘guys’ not just guys – also lots of wonderful ladies 🙂

13 Reasons Why Season 2!

I was obsessed with season one. I couldn’t get it out of my head – it’s one of the most compelling teen tv shows I’ve ever seen. It was just incredible – tragic – but incredible. I was left with answers – but also wanting so much more and I cannot wait for season two. We finally have a date – May 18th. I’m so excited.

*NSYNC on Ellen

‘Never Have I Ever’ is the worst game. I am not a fan. I’m also more of a Backstreet Boy kind of girl rather than *Nsync however… I do appreciate this little reunion.

Herstory with Sam Bee

YAS SAMANTHA BEE. This is why we need more women in late night.

Movies

Black Panther Makeup

Yet another crew appreciation video – people in the makeup department work killer hours and do unreal work. This is an example of an incredible piece of work for Black Panther.

Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance Trailer

So this is what I’ll be watching on May 13th. I totally watched the Kate/Will Lifetime movie and it was everything I wanted in an awful fanfic movie – so I expect this will be just the same. Cannot wait.

The Kissing Booth

I’m intrigued by this movie. I’ll watch it one Sunday afternoon and report back.

Jaded Teacher/Happy Camper: A Globe and Mail Essay

I love this essay so much. Whenever I work with teachers talking kids camping I see this same pattern taking place – a bit nervous but then they get just as much out of it as the kids.

I’m very impressed with Claire’s tenacity, perseverance and creativity. She wanted to make her own Kit Kat and she put in the work to make it happen. If you make these, I will be beyond impressed. Invite me over to eat them.

Finally, this happened…
