After spending the entire day yesterday at the St. Jacob’s Farmer Market, Antiques store and Costco, then napping and cooking dinner before finishing The Originals, I dedicated today (Sunday) of the May long weekend (for Canada anyway) to catching up in some games.
The embargo lifted Friday so I can finally reveal that last September I traveled again to London’s Pinewood Studios to visit the set of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. I had traveled to the same place, stayed in the same hotel, all for the same studio the year prior for Thor: The Dark World so the formula was familiar.
St. Jacob’s Market Discoveries
For the first time, we made the trek out to St. Jacob’s market, where local farmers sell food, livestock and furniture. We bought two big jars of honey, nuts and some freshly squeezed OJ, but they have tons of produce which is fresher and more affordable than most grocery stories. Across the street was a big Antiques market which had a pile of old school DC and Marvel books. Bought three!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming out alongside details of its upcoming Sinister Six spinoff and while it represents the beginning of the summer movie blockbuster season in North America, it’s battling for headlines against rival studio juggernauts in Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VII and… wait… it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Justice League!
After crushing the hearts of at least a few longtime Star Wars fans who grew up playing the video games and reading the novels that made up the Expanded Universe, Lucasfilm, under the new leadership of Kathleen Kennedy and the ownership of Disney, made it official last week that everything not in the actual Star Wars films is not canon. Sorry, but don’t worry, that stuff will still come out and profit will be made from it. It just ain’t legit anymore.
Are you a procrastinator? In your college/university days, did you leave projects, assignments and studying for exams until the last minute? And did it work for you? Do you still do so at your place of employment?
I always did and I thought it worked. In my latter years at the University of Guelph and throughout my graduate studies, I often found myself starting an assignment or study session a full week after classmates, and putting myself through all that unnecessary stress. But It worked! And it worked better for me because I work better under pressure. I was wrong.
After hearing about it from fellow Screen Rant writers for years, I finally decided to begin watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Netflix. For some primitive reason, it (like Parks and Recreation) isn’t available on Netflix Canada so I have to use internet trickery to watch it online. Dumb, but worth it. It’s laugh out loud funny episode to episode.
He’s 66 years old, he doesn’t cry and he definitely doesn’t eat cake. Oh, and he has a TANK.
