Clinging to Obsolescence

The never clinging – and certainly never obsolescent - Ken Monteith reports on hanging on to things that are past their prime

Clinging to Obsolescence

I don't know if there's a metaphor in here somewhere, but I seem to be a person who clings to things well beyond their usefulness. This might be a story about hoarding, but we don't talk about that in front of me! This is more of a story of thriftiness and getting one's money's worth from purchases. I was probably first struck by this aspect of my character many years ago while making cookies in the presence of a friend. My trusty hand mixer, probably only a few years past its prime, actually

Buddies in Bad Times latest offering gets four thumbs up from Bob Leahy

Agokwe - a tale of two-spirited romance on the rez

Why four?  Because myself and my partner both loved it. First you need to know this show has a stellar past. Winner of six Dora (Toronto Theatre) awards when it first appeared at Buddies in their 2008-9 season, it has since toured to great acclaim, including a stop off at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, before returning in triumph this month to Buddies, where it all began. And it began as a product of Buddies Queer Youth Program, following an open-mike performance by its then unh

Greg Halpen and 4 Powerful Ways You Can Put Yourself First

He’s at it again. The Gay Guys Love coach wants to make you happy.

We're taught to put others' needs before our own. It's supposed to teach us how to become thoughtful and unselfish. It's better to give than to receive and think of others before thinking of ourselves; the list goes on. So, when do you cross your own line between pleasing everyone and taking care of yourself first? It doesn't mean you have to become this self-centered egotistical person for the sake of putting yourself first, but understanding that being selfish isn't as negative as we were ta

Homemade Junk Food

Megan DePutter, in another entry in our “Healthy Eating” series proves that no one is perfect, but this simple cheesey wine-enhanced dip recipe is

Homemade Junk Food

This morning I discovered that someone I know routinely consumes an entire bag of chips, a whole container of dip and a litre of pop as a matter of course. As awful as that sounds, I can do some pretty serious damage to a bag of chips too, especially if there is French onion dip nearby. My other guilty pleasure is Pizza Pops – a junk food snack designed for 10-year old boys. I don’t know how or why I first tried one of these things. I think, actually, it all began when I wandered into a gr

The Royal Wedding: Best of the worst!

Our London correspondent Viral Load Warrior with the ultimate Royal Wedding wrap-up post.

With the Royal Wedding over, all that remains is to muddle over who was wearing what and what was happening when. I said in my last post that I would only tune into the wedding for a short while. I ended up glued to the TV for hours. But, whilst most were oo’ing and aah’ing at the bride’s dress, I was drawn in more by what was and had been going on in the background. Here are my four favourite moments, alongside some background stories! 1. Hats off please! This was the moment I decided i

Louise Binder aka Dame Velveeta Peron reviews two more movies. Does she like them? Read on.

Restrepo   Tim Hetherington, the photo journalist killed recently in Iraq, made this documentary of soldiers in Afghanistan. It is interesting and troubling. Watching these young men change into killers is not easy but Hetherington makes it easy to see how it happens, over time. The question remains - why do we do this to each other and ourselves.   Yours for peaceful coexistence,   Dane Velveeta Peron     In a Better World - Morality Tale about Boys and Men and

Snagging Your Own Prince

There is a newfound global optimism that coincidentally is emerging with the shift in seasons. The last weekend of April set the tone as we witnessed a spectacular real life fairy tale wedding one day and the long awaited demise of a tyrant the next. Talk about a colorful weekend! We can finally shed that “Gloomy Gus” color palette and embrace some great color options in our wardrobes without the worries of being offensive. Last summers’ subdued wardrobe can be uplifted with a variety of

Wow! That's controversial. What do you think? From the AIDS Beacon May 4, 2011

HIV Experts in USA Recommend Shifting HIV Care To Primary Care Doctors

In a recent editorial, Dr. Mitchell Katz, a physician with extensive experience in treating patients with HIV and AIDS, argues that HIV/AIDS care should shift from HIV specialists to primary care physicians now that, in his opinion, HIV is essentially a chronic, treatable disease. The editorial comes several weeks after an Institute of Medicine report warned of serious and growing shortages in the HIV healthcare system and also recommended shifting more HIV care to primary care doctors. “If
