A Wordy Adventure


This is the video I submitted for the 2010 Montreal 60 Second Movie festival (M60). The theme was adventure.

Go Spos!
Twenty years ago today, I went to my first baseball game. The Expos had the NL East lead, a half-game up on the Pirates, and it was half-price ticket day for under 16s, so I convinced my parents to drive all the way to the Big O with the family.

The Meech Lake Accord had failed the day before and it was St-Jean-Baptiste Day, so for the first (but not last) time in Expos history, many in the large (for the Expos) crowd of 25,000 booed Canada's national anthem. Anytime the Expos played at home on St-Jean-Baptise Day after that, they played the anthems during the warmup so that no one would be there to boo.

We sat in the first row of the upper deck, right behind home plate. Dennis Martinez had a solid start, but the relief was weak and the Pirates won the game, retaking the NL East lead (which they kept for the rest of the year). Disappointing, but I'll never forget how awesome it was to eat peanuts and ice cream and watch the Expos in the Big O on a hot summer day, during that brief time when the retractable roof actually worked.

Worst hotel in Montreal
I've travelled a lot, and so have read quite a lot of hotel reviews. But Montreal's very own Hotel Eureka has the worst hotel reviews I have ever seen.

Radio Free Québec drama
For our second season, we are developing a new drama featuring the voice of the lady who makes the Metro announcements. Here is a clip.

You can also make movies (in most major European languages) at www.xtranormal.com.

Election Congratulations
Congratulations, first of all, to Hamid Karzai and Gérald Tremblay for their re-elections. For those of you who do not know these two men, one is a corrupt, weak leader in a land controlled by druglords whose re-election was made possible through a farcical, sham process, while the other is the president of Afghanistan.

Congratulations also go out to newly-acclaimed Mayor Gisèle Chapleau and the six acclaimed counsellors of L'Ile-Dorval (results available here), a city with no residents.

Bloggy Battle of Wits
So Mr. Marc and I are trying to come up with a good name for our brand new Montreal Improv blog. Your challenge is to come up with some decent names for us to choose from.

Now if it weren't illegal for us as a registered Quebec business to give away a prize without a lot of hassle, I totally would. So all you can legally get is our gratitude.

I leave it to goodladd to declare winners for the previous two battles.

Give a penny, take a penny
Here is a fun video of a woman leaving her CV at a Subway on Ontario Street. See if you can spot the reason she probably won't be hired:
