20:05 The Skeleton Twins at Friday, November 28, 2014 at 9:05 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 3 days left to see this film.

Rated: 14 Accompaniment (Sexual Content, Coarse Language)
Runs: 93 minutes
Director: Craig Johnson
Country: US
Released: 2014
Starring: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Luke Wilson

"If `sad comedy' is a genre, Craig Johnson's thoughtful, touching film fits right in. Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader play Maggie and Milo Dean, a pair of long-estranged twin siblings reunited, in the film's opening moments, after Milo's suicide attempt. In fact, a call informing Maggie of Milo's suicide attempt comes just in time to stop her from her own plans for the day: swallowing a bottle of pills. Like I said, sad comedy. Though the film has many funny moments - most notably a priceless lip-sync performance to Starship's `Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now' that brings the twins (and us) a moment of perfect happiness - the primary note struck here is one of quiet regret and, eventually, cautious hope. Reunited in their childhood hometown, where Maggie lives with her cheerful dude of a husband (Luke Wilson, delightful), the siblings sort through their troubled childhood, face middle-age disappointment and realize that the ordinary can be happy. Johnson maintains a difficult, delicate balance throughout; the story's darkness never quite overshadows its light. And, in casting Wiig and Hader, he's created an uncanny pair of siblings. We always believe these two share a past - particularly when they laugh together. Nothing's gonna stop them, it turns out, and that feels just right." - Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times

We're older & don't know a lot about computers but I do remember reading awhile back that this can cause a security problem, am I wrong?

Should we add a user name & password & if so are there any settings we should add?

It says right now the firewall is "NAT only? We aren't sure what this means. Hopefully there are some of you fellow Islander's who now more than we do & can give us some advice.

06:27 [PHOTO] "But they weren't doing much, so we killed them all ... ?" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
"But they weren't doing much, so we killed them all ... ?"


This May 2013 photo was taken as I was walking with my father down the former course of Garrison Creek, along Bathurst Street near Fort York. On the side of a stairway leading from the street towards the fort, builders had erected a wall with a potted history of the Toronto area, the only entry relating to native peoples being a notation that First Nations settled the area circa 9000 BC. Below that entry, someone had scrawled some graffiti: "But they weren't doing much, so we killed them all ... ?"

First Nations erasure is a major problem in Canadian history. In this particular case, the graffiti artist missed a singular point about Toronto's pre-European history, that there were no mass killings of indingenous peoples by Europeans, that the main mass killings were conducted by other indigenous peoples. The mid-17th century Beaver Wars fought for control of the North American fur trade ended up seeing the dispersion of the native groups indigenous to south-central Ontario, notably the Huron. C.M.W. Marcel's 2006 Counterweights essay goes into interesting detail about the ephemeral Iroquois colonization of the northern shores of Lake Ontario. This settlement included two villages in modern Toronto's boundaries, Teiaiagon on the eastern shore of the Humber River in west-end Toronto and Ganatsekwyagon in east-end Toronto on the Rouge River. That first village later hosted the Mississaugas, an Algonquian-speaking Ojibwa group that has since been displaced from the area. (Wayne Roberts' 2013 NOW Toronto essay is recommended.)

History is interesting.
