Cory Doctrow Pictures, Images and Photos

Perhaps in your travels on the internet, you have come across the site One of the people behind it it Toronto born Cory Doctorow, a science fiction author, blogger and journalist. His new book, Makers, is being released this week.

Morgan Freeman Pictures, Images and Photos

I have always been a fan of Morgan Freeman. My favourite of his films is a 1997 suspense/thriller, Kiss the Girls. If you've not seen it, check it out...the ending will surprise you! I am eagerly looking forward to his latest project with Canadian filmmaker Paul Saltzman (a previous guest on The Hour). Prom Night in Mississippi is a documentary that follows the events surrounding the first ever integrated prom at Charleston High School. The year of this history making event? 2008.

On November 13, Freeman and Paul Saltzman will be participating in a special opening night benefit screening at the Varsity Cinema in Toronto. The benefit is in support of Saltzman's Moving Beyond Prejudice educational DVD package. Proceeds will be used to donate the DVD packages to Canadian schools who would otherwise be unable to purchase the learning tool. Ticket information can be found here.

Friday, November 13th

I caught a couple of hours of it, and it was great!

I love the no commercials. I didn't realize how darn distracting they are until last night.

What do you guys think of the teamakers, they seem to hate George for some reason.

Barbara said...

Anon 8:53 The original blogger that started Teamakers was not involved in that drama it's the replacement that has a love/hate thing and we feel it's best to give it no energy.

True. Sometime people on the Teamakers are mean spirited as well as the comments. But, most comments do have some truth to them, the people that are rational.
They are saying that outside of Toronto George doesn't really have any impressive ratings. Just wondering if you aggree with that.
