Supernatural: The Impact of An Amulet

If you watch “Supernatural” then you know that Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) aren’t the only stars of the show. There are some non-human stars on “Supernatural”. You know what they are: The 1967 Chevy Impala, the colt, the Ruby-dagger, the anti-possession symbol, Sam’s laptop, Dean’s leather jacket and Castiel’s trench coat. There is one non-human item that “Supernatural” fans seem to have a very fiery

Divine: Behind the Camera (Repost)

If you’re anything like me you’ve spent more time worrying about what’s on your TV screen than about the effort that goes into creating it. My thoughts on that are beginning to change. When I first saw Divine: The Series I realized it had a different look to it. It was darker, there were some really great camera angles and the actual visual impression it left on me felt like

The Art of Action - "Divine: The Series"

One of the most interesting things about Maple Blood Productions is the diverse makeup of the folks involved. “Divine: The Series” is a perfect example of what happens when people with a variety of talents and skills get together to create something.

Divine! Convert the World (Repost of Interview with Ivan!)

Charlotte Kinzie, Vancouver, BC I remember when I first heard about “Divine: The Series”. I was intrigued. There were some talented Canadian actors involved; there was a well-known American actor who plays an angel on some cult TV show. What’s not to be intrigued about? I got really interested when I read that many of crew from that cult TV show (okay, okay, it’s “Supernatural”) would be working on “Divine:

Divine Win at the Leo's

Brian Buckley Band – “Hysterical Blindness”

I take a lot of flak from certain people over the Brian Buckley band.  Let me explain. The first time I listened to their music it was on YouTube.  The sound was really crappy, the crowd was loud and I made a snap judgment.  Unfortunately, I told people I didn’t like them. I have this friend.  He has pretty good taste; he tells it like it is, he’s pretty assertive. 

Matt Cohen: As He Really Is

While Matt Cohen was in Vancouver to appear at the “Creation Salute to Supernatural Convention” I was lucky enough to catch up with him.  After we exchanged a few confusing text messages I headed up to his room shortly after he arrived in BC. As soon as I knocked on the door I heard a muffled yell and then the door was flung open.  The “do not disturb” sign went

Emma Donoghue On Writing

She might have been born in Ireland but Canadians are delighted to lay claim to, perhaps, one of our most well-known authors. Emma Donaghue was born in Ireland in 1969 into a large Catholic family. In 1998 she finally moved to Canada after years of “commuting” and now resides in Ontario with partner Chris Roulston and their two children. Donaghue’s most recent book “Room” is currently on the best seller’s
