JIMMY WALES AT WEBCOM MONTREAL

Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales, was in Montreal yesterday to give a keynote address at Webcom Montreal. You might have never heard his name before, but this man has changed the way we live and access information forever – making knowledge attainable and free for people around the globe. In our interview, Wales talked to me about open source licensing and how it is transforming the face of the internet. We also chatted about such various subjects as the video-era, students in India, copyright issues, geotagging and this mysterious thing called Werewolf, of which Wales is a big fan.

Due to the acceptance (and celebration) of gay and lesbian peoples, Montréal has become one of the top gay destinations in the world. Even the rockstars know that!

Who is their gay diva of choice? Who is hotter: George Stroumboulopoulos or Michael Bublé? This is information you need. What results is a humorous (and dare I say ‘touching’) interview that is a must-watch for anyone who loves these Canadian rock icons, or just enjoys a bit of gay flair. My favorite quote is, “MORE GAY INTERVIEWS!” Maybe I’ve found my calling?

BARENAKED LADIES ON MONTREAL, ITS WOMEN, BAGELS…

Over the course of a 20 year career, the Barenaked Ladies have become one of Canada’s most beloved bands. When they touched down in Montreal before their April 30th, Metropolis show, I sat down with Jim Creegan and Tyler Stewart to talk about bagels, shopping, women and Mount Royal’s medieval fighters.

LADY GAGA VS. MONTREAL CANADIENS

This take on Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance is absolutely awesome! It was created by the peeps over at Virgin Radio in honour of the Montreal Canadiens (and our stellar goalie, Jaroslav Halak) who are heading into Game 7 this evening against the Capitals of Washington. There is simply no place like Montreal when it comes to hockey playoffs. GO HABS GO!

ROBERT LEPAGE DIRECTS CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

Last week in Montreal, writer and director, Robert Lepage, unveiled Cirque du Soleil’s brand new show, Totem. As cleverly explained by my colleague Daniel Baylis, Totem is a voyage through the evolution of the human species. Surprisingly, it was a long-time dream for the notorious playwright to finally direct one of the Cirque’s touring shows (Lepage had previously directed Cirque du Soleil’s Kà, which is presented at the MGM Grand in Vegas).
