OK, so apparently I’m behind on all the newest and latest and greatest and coolest social media stuffs. But a while ago I did get tumblr.

My tumblr OMGCEOs exhibits photographs of CEOs describing the size/shape/width/roundness/flatness etc. of their penis. Basically it’s hilarious and fun. Also my first entry was a KW former CEO that we all know and love. Follow me, tweet nme, facebook me! Thanks!

Local opera singer Emilio Fina is one of twelve finalists on Canada’s Got Talent.

We feel the impacts of the global arms trade in our community. We have an arms manufacturer in our local economy, we are host to refugees and refugee claimants fleeing countries of violent conflict.

The arms trade is globalized, no doubt. But its impacts are affecting communities worldwide. Project Ploughshares and the Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies present a series of three stories depicting the impact of the global arms trade.

April 4 at 7p.m. in the Great Hall at Conrad Grebel University College. Register Here!



Not only my blogging drought, but the OPERA drought. These crazy towns of KW-C haven’t seen an opera production in a long long time. Anyways this Saturday at 7p.m. is Opera Kitchener’s production of Don Giovanni. Tickets are a steal at $25-30!!

A sample of music from the show. This is one of the duets from the opera. This clip is not from Opera Kitchener’s production but it’s the same music as the show.


The only way we will have a community full of vibrant arts and culture is if we all get off our bums and attend stuff! Come on folks, let’s do it!


So the KW-Symphony has a fairly awesome program coming up, called….


Yes, with TWO exclamation points. Daniel Handler (a.k.a Lemony Snicket) is narrating H.K. Gruber’s Frankenstein!!. From what I know, it’s going to be very weird, but in a good way. And KWS is giving away two pairs of tickets.

All you need to do is create a composite graphic using at least one line of text from HK Gruber’s Frankenstein!! and any corresponding image, like the one you see here. The winner will be decided based on the cleverness of the combination. “Slightly and Inexplicably Disturbing” is encouraged.

Bonus points for using my favourite passage:
batman and robin
still lie in their bed
robin’s a nice boy
but batman’s ill-bred.
batman ta-ta
and robin too-too
coffee is on,
and it’s breakfast for two.

Always knew there was something more than a work relationship between those two.

The fine print:
All entries will be displayed on kwsocial.ca. Lyrics can be found here, with password: 123. Yes, high-tech I know. The winning two will be included on the Conrad Centre for the Performing Arts digital screens for the week leading up to the show, in addition to the tickets. Upload the image wherever (e.g. facebook, tweetpics etc.) and post the link in the comments. 

Deadline: Friday, April 29, 2011

Bonus points are not guaranteed.
