Of course, the big news of the day is, surprise! It's snowing. Welcome to Canada. Find all the updates on storm closures here. But while we wait to find out whether we're all DOOOOOOMED, (answer: "yes"), you can kill time by practicing being a Stoic Pioneer. For while a major snow hearkens back to blizzards on the endless prairie, being thrust back into the days of do-it-yourself medicine is what really stirs a latent frontiersman's soul. Don't get the flu. Don't get hypothermia. Stay home and read the Good Book by the fire. Discuss politics. Practice stitching your own wounds.

Barring that, here are our top picks for what's new and godless in Montreal this weekend.

FILM: Opening today is the new David Fincher film Zodiac, which should bring out a particularly rabid breed of fan. Also premiering is a Montreal-based documentary, Chez Schwartz, about the famed eatery.

FESTIVAL: White night indeed. Assuming you can shove your front door open, make sure you swing out to the Montreal Nuit Blanche, the High Lights' all-nighter starting Saturday night.

MUSIC: The combination of TV on the Radio and Subtle at Olympia ought to be memorable, but if you're feeling like breaking out of the indie rut, consider checking out the highly praised "Diva of Fado" Misia, at the Place-des-Arts.

TV: If the weather's really got you stuck, just stay in and watch a five-episode marathon of the new Montreal-based Leslie Neilsen show, Doctor*ology. Think Scrubs re-imagined by the Discovery Channel. Learn medicine from "Don't call me Shirley." Imagine that.

MP's own Hannah Hoag contributed her scientific know-how to Doctorology. So if it's good, send her some love. If it's no good, it's not her fault.

Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting
company you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different webb browsers and I
must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Cheers, I appreciate it!
