Am stat la o poveste cu Jon Asher – de la Asher Media Relations – agentul de presa al concursului Wacken Metal Battle Canada.

Omul a fost anu trecut in audienta la concertul Dirty Shirt  de la Wacken si i-a placut tare!

Jon era la Wacken cu Mutank, gasca din Montreal care a reprezentat Canada in 2014 si pe care o cint azi prima – versurile piesei Thrashback in Time sunt aici, merita urmarite.

A doua trupa de azi de Crimson Shadows, din Toronto. In 2013 au cistigat marele premiu la Wacken Global Metal Battle.

Out of Montreal comes a new documentary about the making (and, the part I’m most interested in – testing) of Software.

There are not nearly enough docs like that, trust me.

If Software making is a revolution these days, as we hear every time a new app comes out to quench the thirst of our devices, then we need more people like Alex Pop to reflect on it, and its impact.

Watch the teaser and help Alex with his crowdsourcing campaign on IndieGogo. It runs to January 20, 2014.

Uite, primesc de la Luiza Alexa vestea ca prietenul ei, regizorul de teatru Cristian Popescu – mai nou rezident prin Montreal dar cu aparitii si pe la Bucuresti – monteaza la Toronto o piesa cu premiera vinerea asta.

Am google-it rapid “Cristian Popescu regizor” si am gasit destule motive sa fac vizita la teatru, mai ales ca pentru spectacolul de simbata 20 martie:

  • biletele pentru romani sint cu 10 dolari mai ieftine (15 in loc de 25)
  • Cristian e in Toronto si  ramine dupa spectacol sa va raspunda la intrebari

Sa nu zica cineva ca Cristian nu isi face datoria fata de comunitatea romana!

Si daca nu puteti ajunge simbata, tineti minte ca luni e PWYC Monday (Pay What You Can).

Io, daca as fi strins la buzunar si as vrea sa ies luni seara, as pune asa: 6 dolari la cutia pentru teatru, si 6 la o bere dupa, la pub.
