Extra, Extra: A Birthday and a Funeral

Every weekday's end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

  • Our favourite dancing fool, Phil Villeneuve, who makes strangers mildly uncomfortable by strutting his stuff next to them in public places, has taken his act to Sugar Beach. The resulting video (embedded above) is marvelous.
  • The TTC turned 90 today, a fact they are advertising on this month’s very snazzy Metropasses.
  • An online promo for this month’s Vanity Fair feature on Conrad Black is full of gems, like when he refers to his anal sphincter, which was occasionally probed by curious police officers during his incarceration, as “that generally unremitting aperture.”
  • Blockbuster Canada is officially giving up. Line up now, before all the discounted Blu-ray copies of Mars Needs Moms are gone.
