When the Unexpected Happens

Did you ever have one of those days? You know, the one where your schedule is set, your plans are clear, preparations had been made, and then the wrench gets thrown in? Laurel’s mother had a saying from her tradition, “Man plans, and God laughs.” It seems to happen all too often that when we think we are in control of a situation as we prepared to take action, the unexpected happens. Both Laurel and I had planned to play pickleball then begin our workday immediately after. I had calls scheduled...

A Good Or Bad Weekend

from Rory Boylen of Sportsnet, The NHL Draft started with a flurry of trade action, some surprising picks, and a long second day that wasn't quite as busy on the player movement front. Friday and Saturday set the stage for what should be a busy week ahead, especially with so many rumoured deals still hanging -- including the biggest in Jack Eichel -- and free agency looming on Wednesday. Here are some of our winners and losers from a wild draft weekend. WINNERS Columbus ...

Cultivate Brings the Industry Back Together in 2021

I had promised Susan et al. to report on Cultivate a few short hours after attending this huge trade show in Columbus last week – back in person for the first time since COVID changed all our lives. But it turns out that so much social activity after so long on the social distancing wagon is exhausting.  Plus, I visited Scott Beuerlein in Cincinnati. I needed a few days. Scott Beuerlein showing us Cincinnati. Surprisingly he didn’t nudge me over the edge. Like Getting On a Bike…. Cultivate i...

NHL draft: Kings select Brandt Clarke with eighth overall pick

The Kings added to their formidable stable of prospects on Friday, selecting defenseman Brandt Clarke with the eighth overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft.

Whicker: Jack Eichel’s unhappiness could become the Kings’ delight

The idea of Jack Eichel coming to the Los Angeles Kings would be the very definition of a cheap thrill, if it were cheap. Eichel had 137 goals and 200 assists in his first five seasons. In 2021 he only had two goals, thanks to a neck injury. He also is dealing with a sprained disposition and a dislocated mood. The Buffalo Sabres have not made the playoffs in 10 years. Now they seem farther away than Pluto is from Jeff Bezos. Eichel missed the meeting in which hockey players are taught to smother...

‘After Yang’ Review: Kogonada’s Second Film is a Quiet Sci-Fi Stunner to Be Savored [Cannes]

After Yang begins inside a tea shop, an austere space with a decidedly Japanese aesthetic. Jake (Colin Farrell) greets a patron who has walked down the stairs, seeking out “tea crystals” for instant pleasure. Explaining that the local supermarket may carry such convenient goods, and that instead he’s got preparations that may require more effort but may be more rewarding, she leaves frustrated, wondering how someone can survive by not giving the customer what they already want. This interaction...

Cannes 2021: Kogonada's 'After Yang' is Subtle Sci-Fi at its Very Best

It's not often that the Cannes Film Festival plays science fiction films, but when they do, they're some of the best science fiction films all year. After Yang is the second feature film directed by the Korean-American filmmaker known as "Kogonada", who made his debut in 2017 at the Sundance Film Festival with a feature called Columbus after creating video essays about cinema for years before that. It seems he has taken his experience with that film (and his vast knowledge of cinema) and devel...
