The heady days of 15-20 posts in a month — our usual target — are gone. It’s been a steady, sad decline these last few months. But take heart, this is usually how it goes for semi-personal blogs, er, I mean, websites. And that’s just how it goes for the Same Page Team. We tried our best.
The NBA’s first ever award show is next week! Remember the NBA awards? Mostly for the regular season, that ended like ten weeks ago? Next week Drake is going to tell you who wins them! Fun stuff, amirite?
And so we have it now: Wonder Woman, the film built around the third of DC’s classic trio of characters (along with Batman and Superman). It’s the first of its kind, and already marked as a success (after a $100 million opening weekend), which of course suggests a bright future for more. But, as with its male-led predecessors: is this necessarily a good thing?
There’s a lot of beautiful work here, put together by top-notch artists, and yet Alien: Covenant plays out like one long odd choice. The talent makes it work thankfully, but it still feels unnecessary.
The big sports leagues (MLB, NBA, NFL) know they have a unique and valuable property, so they are working to maximize their TV contract dollars. They don’t care that ESPN is losing subscribers, and FOX Sports is hemorrhaging money. They want their money and they want it now. They are basically treating ESPN they way ESPN treated its subscribers.
Who’s worked with the best the most often, but never been individually recognized? Who’s the best supporting supporting actor? Welcome to the Same Page Team’s hunt for the best supporting supporting actor!
e’ve decided to take a classic movie conundrum and turn it into a little game, enlisting several of our contributors to participate. We’ve all done it before. You turn on a recommended movie, or the hit TV show du jours and you see an actor. You’ve seen them before, but you can’t remember where. ‘Who IS that?’ you ask yourself. You find yourself furiously searching IMDB pages, trying to learn his or her identity.
In his own way, though, Drake has always had something bigger driving him. Cliché as he’s made it, there’s truth in his projection of Toronto culture. He’s the city’s global ambassador, and one local sports team has gone so far as to give him money for it. Outside of the island joys of “One Dance” and “Too Good”, we didn’t see much of this on Views. On the new More Life playlist, though, Drake is taking in more voices, more languages, more culture. In North America’s most diverse city, it’s the sounds of summer, and it shows how excited Drake is at Toronto’s evolution, creating a music well beyond Canadiana.
