Pick of the Day: Tabloid

If you’re a fan of tabloid culture you’ll likely enjoy this documentary by Errol Morris which screens tonight at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m.

It concerns a sensational sex scandal with religious overtones that occured in the 1970s. To find out more, Google “manacled Mormon” or watch this trailer.

  1. I love the Film Theatre at the RPL, with its convenient location. You can go through the front doors at Central Branch and right down the stairs to catch a movie, cheap, without having to walk past the Dunlop Art Gallery with all that nudity.

  2. In other news this glorious Sunday morning … happy 70th birthday to Stephen Hawking … and good luck Giants against Atlanta!!

  3. Going to Toronto but the Leafs will be out of town? No problem.
    Take a side trip down Highway 401 to Waterloo and pay a visit to the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. They give free tours of the Stephen Hawking Centre and the public is invited to attend the lectures.

  4. Scrawled in felt-tip marker on the back of the door of a cubicle in the men’s washroom at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics:

    Why did the chicken cross the Mobius Strip?
    To get to the same side.

    TODAY’S SPECIAL: Fission chips

  6. Bumper sticker purchased from the souvenir shop at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics:

    Entropy Ain’t What It Used To Be

  7. In honour of his birthday, the last word this morning goes to Stephen Hawking:

    “I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”

    You’ve been a great audience. Thank you, and have a great day.

  8. Heard offstage: “MacRae is a tough act to follow. Next time, I want to go first. Right after Yates.”
