Toosday Tidbits: January 30, 2007

Posted by Chip / January 30, 2007

lion.jpgYes, yes, rejoice – it’s once again Tuesday and the feature you’ve all been waiting for is here. Today’s tidbits will make you happy, sad, angry, curious and complacent, but not about the environment…

Canada.com would have us believe that Parti Quebecois leader Andre Boisclair is ‘embattled’ and in trouble with some of his party members. He may be, but he sure is handsome. More handsome than say, Bill Gates…this week, after extensive planning and research, the Microsoft founder unveiled Windows Vista. It was promptly hacked by a Montrealer who apparently doesn’t know who he’s messing with.

The town of Herouxville, Quebec has decided it necessary to decree that stoning one’s wife is prohibited. Who’d have known? The nation’s papers are zeroing in on this towns declaration of ‘norms’. Predjudiced? I’m no doctor, decide for yourself…

Vladislav Tretiak was on hand at the Bell Centre to help celebrate the career of his one-time rival. And although Ken Dryden’s number was retired last night – it is his goalie mask that everyone will remember.

And, the local premiere of Charles Busch's Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, the cult off-Broadway hit, will begin tonight and run until Feb. 17. You can find a review of the production here.

Thanks for mentioning Vampire Lesbians of Sodom - but the Gazette article you link to isn't a review! It came out before the show even opened. Ironically, the article is about how hard it is to get an audience for anglophone theatre...
