Pick of the Day: Dagan Harding & Nick Faye

Got a couple of local singer-songwriters going at O’Hanlon’s Pub tonight. Don’t have a lot of info on what they’ve been up to lately. But both have been prominent figures on the Regina music scene for some time now, so should be a solid show.

Or if you’re in the mood to see a movie, Shane was high on Hanna (pictured) and Source Code.

  1. …and being that Shane is never really high on anything (in the modern movie world, anyway), his personal recommendation of both Hanna and Source Code is definitely something to be both noted and followed accordingly…

  2. ANP: that’s a little snide. An appreciation for older movies doesn’t mean a film buff can’t appreciate modern movies. It simply means that (s)he is deeply interested in the evolution of the art form. Those who love Proust or Joyce can also appreciate T.C. Boyle and Cormac McCarthy.

  3. There was no snide undertone present, Barb – I assure you. I was merely stating a fact. If you read Shane’s movie reviews on a regular basis, there are very few modern films (modern referring to newly released films shown in theatres) that he likes. And furthermore, not only do I think Shane’s great, but I also think he’s 100% on point with his regular observations that most modern movies are, indeed, pretty awful.

  4. Shane will watch just about ANY movie from pre-Code silent films to the most extreme, vile torture porn. But he would rather watch torture-porn obscenities like Martyrs (look it up or better, don’t) than romantic comedies starring Katherine Heigl. I think that’s some kind of a scathing commentary on the state of Hollywood right there.

  5. And to clarify, Shane writes our film listings while Jorge writes our reviews. They’ve never met but I bet they’d get along very well.

  6. Although he may not technically write the film reviews, the listings are usually little reviews within themselves, which is pretty awesome.

  7. OK, ANP; I back down from my harshness. Actually, I prefer Shane’s listings to Mr. Castillo’s reviews, no offence meant (it’s just a matter of taste).
