Conan, The Torontonian

  • Computer problems have plagued me over the last couple of days, but things seem to be running smoothly now. What did I miss?

  • The big news in T.O. - Conan began the first of 4 nights of taping Late Night with Conan O'Brien in Toronto at the Elgin Theatre. I have my VCR already to go for 12:35 am! Conan was on Muchmusic yesterday and had the crowd(of mostly teenage girls) enthralled. Justin Timberlake eat your heart out!

    Check out some related stories from yesterday's Toronto Star:

  • By the way, I just came back from seeing The Butterfly Effect. Awesome film! The science of time travel is approached quite simplistically but the cause-and-effect scenarios were really quite interesting... Sorry to get all, movie-critic. Felt like saying something intelligent. [I'll save the movie review for another time.]

  • music news: What-the-fuck exactly! Pitchfork reports that The Pixies will play their first show in more than a decade, in all places, Winnipeg, Manitoba! And then checking out the tour dates below(courtesy of Pitchfork):
