If you haven’t heard of her yet, you are so 2000 and late. Tori did not like the frazzled, skunk-baked look of us, but graced us with an interview out of pity after we explained that we were exercising a mind-body connection. In order to become more in touch with our personal energy in relation to the universe, we needed to touch the very person we touch ourselves to. She seemed to understand immediately, and did not care that we were also using her as an obvious attempt at a readership boost.

MacHall’s loading dock will be relocated from the south to the north side of the building in the next 3–5 years as part of the MacHall redevelopment plan.

Author and former Calgary-Centre Green Party nominee Chris Turner recently stopped by the Gauntlet to talk about his new book, The War on Science. We discussed why scientific research is being cut by Canada’s federal government, what impact that might have on the environment and the future role of oil in Canada’s economy.

Before the advent of television, skilled actors and sound effect technicians would coax audiences out of their living rooms and into their imaginations solely through sound. For the two and a half hours that Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play was being performed, Vertigo Theatre was a time machine that took audiences back to this golden age of entertainment.

The first time I met Duncan Stokes face to face was when he showed up at my front door yesterday. A couple of days from now, he will catch a flight to Los Angeles to buy a motorbike and then ride down to Machu Picchu, in Peru. One word comes to mind when I think of Stokes — spontaneous. Stokes came to Calgary because he was bored and wanted to live in Canada for a while. He quickly discovered he wasn’t well suited to the weather.
