I've been on a major netflix documentary binge. Here's a few you might want to take a look at.....

I am Big Bird
Awesome doc on Caroll Spinney the man inside Big Bird. Fan of Sesame Street or not - this is a very insightful film. Did you know Big Bird was originally scheduled to fly on Space Shuttle Challenger, but in the end was replace by teacher Christa McAuliffe!

Little White Lie
Fascinating story about a young girl who grew up being unsure of where her looks came from and the interesting way her family ignored what was right in their face every day (even her own father didn't know the truth). Only about an hour long and absolutely worth the time.

Advanced Style
Not for everyone, but I have a certain fascination with fashionable 'regular' people. This doc follows several women, from 60 - 96 years old who are incredible fashion mavens.

Iris
Documenting the fashion icon (see above re my fascination!!) Iris Apfel. For fans of Iris this is an absolute must. (side note Iris' husband just died recently - so sad)

Deliver Us from Evil
A super dark, depressing subject - child molestation in the Catholic church. This documentary is riveting and repulsing. Two scenes that left me gobsmacked: when the actual subject of the film (pedophile priest piece of shit) looks kinda happily into the camera while stating that he is aroused by pictures of naked children. It was one of the creepiest things I have ever seen. Second scene was watching his good friends (whom he had duped the whole time - he was raping their daughter) - their complete and utter grief/betrayal - it is gut wrenching to watch.

Twinsters
Light documentary on Korean-born twins who find each other because of a youtube video, one living in the US and one in England. Interesting to see how the internet has made the world so small. Warning - lots of giggling.

Making of a Murderer
Fucking hell - what a shit storm.

How to Sell a Banksy
Somewhat interesting tale of an English guy who stole a Banksy off of a bridge and his journey to try to sell it years later.

Not a documentary but I finally listened to all episodes of Serial Podcast (season 1). Not fully convinced of Adnan's innocence, but still don't think he should be in jail - scarce evidence. LOVE this podcasters voice and cadence.

Kudos to JJ Abrams who, under the cover of Star Wars, sneakily surprised us with the fact that his sequel to Cloverfield (which he calls a blood relative to the original film), will hit theatres in March.

My Habs lost again. Yes, again, and it wasn't even in overtime. They will turn it around. They have to. I think they need Carey Price back. My coyotes lost as well. That's no good, but it was in overtime so they get a point, but I wanted two. Don't worry. My Habs and Coyotes will be in the final. My trainer won on Tuesday. Goody. I sure wish he would have gone to Challenge Round though. Anyway, Kean will win Challenge Round, no doubt about it.

(Leafs fan here)

Don't think the Habs will miss the playoffs but if they do we're looking at a scenario where NO Canadian teams make the playoffs. If that happens what will that do to hockey ratings for Rogers and HNIC?

If this does happen I see Rogers trying to "accelerate" the rebuild process of the Leafs to try and push them into the playoffs. This would likely be met with heavy resistance from Bell and be spun as them trying to do the right hockey thing and rebuild slowly through the draft when in reality they just want to see Rogers suffer.

If no Canadian teams make the playoffs, that really will have an adverse effect on viewers of Rogers Hockey. It's a nightmare scenario for them, really.

Nothing the Jays did in 2015 will compensate for that...

Speaking of Bowie did you see the list of Bowie's Top 100 books! Now that is amazing.
Top 100. How many of us have a 'top' 100 books?

@ Mike & Lorne. Fascinating subject. What we don't know...and don't want to know' I am sure.

@Mike & @Lorne

I wonder how much of a leash the NHL has given Rogers with the TV rights. The first few years of their reign hasn't met the expectations initially set by Scott Moore and less Canadian teams in the playoffs will mean less viewer which mean less revenue for advertisers. Wonder if there is a scenario in which the NHL pulls back some of the TV rights and sells it to TSN.

On a similar note, if you ever get a chance to watch the NBA on Christmas its interesting to see different networks promoting games on different networks as if it was 2nd nature. For instance a game on ESPN at 1pm may advertise a game on ABC starting at 3pm or on TNT at 8pm. Never see that in the Canadian market.

Heard on CBC Netflix wanting to clamp down on users using USA IP's to stop users from not buying their local content.
Not sure how they will be able to counter this, shut down one all you need to do is get another.

@GUNTer, awesome list, hoping to binge on the Making a Murderer this weekend as I Have a work layover in Moncton, and it is cold and going to be snowy here.
@Lyle: the loonies fall is killing the company I work for, we import all our equipment from the USA (sorry no CDN manufacturer) and quotes we made in September October are coming in and we are losing about 15% in a very competitive industry. Basically pushing equipment out the door barely with a 10-15% margin.

I just discovered your podcast. I'm binging on it and loving it.

My question is about how you get people to open up so much. I started with Mike Richards and couldn't believe what he was telling you. My guess is that these are friends and there's a report.

Am I rite?

I work in the printing industry & thankfully only a few years from retirement.

TorStar closing print operations in Vaughan flagship facility. MANY people will be let go soon, including one of my best freinds who emailed me earlier. He is fine after 25 years in IT support at TorStar with a hefty severance until his retirement.

@Cheryl - You complain about getting JUNK mail. The print industry is declining because of social media. You get letters in envelopes & other "junk" mail you don't want but that's why I'm still employed. My co. is also on decline with sales. 4 salaried people let go today at my co. & fortunately not me.

I'm digging the Great Lakes sponsorship of the podcast. IMO the best beer in the city is their classic Blonde Lager which I've been drinking since it was called Golden Horseshoe lager. Their Red Leaf Lager is a close second. I always buy at their brew store because you save a few bucks and can sample their seasonal brews before committing.

Hey Quint, how did you stumble across Mike's podcast, if I may ask?

Well, my Suns and Nets lost again. That's not good at all. Habs will win tonight and Coyotes will win today. Habs do need Carey Price back and he will come back. Habs will win the cup, believe me. Habs and coyotes to the finals. Kean didn't play last night, but they play this morning and will win. Kean is going to win Provincials again and go to the Brier. I'm not the only one who doesn't like junk mail. I hate junk mail. It's like I don't get any exciting mail anymore, it's just junk mail. Primus never ever sends mail out. That's one of the reasons why they're so good. They hardly ever go down. Bell went down at least once a week. Primus has much better customer service.

January 16, 2016 @ 5:56 AM

Ice E.Rhoads

I also never ever get junk mail from Primus.Then again i have never ever been a customer also.
The Habs have shown that they are a very,very average team without Price.
I do almost 3 times a month get junk mail from the Brier.

@dale, sorry to hear of the Torstar situation. Both my sisters worked for the Toronto Sun and the eventual laying off of a great number of people. It sounds like your friend has some transferable skills which may help. My brother in law has been watching the slow decline of RIM/ BlackBerry, and being almost 60 years old may have to retire earlier than anticipated. The next year for most people. Is going to be challenging, New Brunswick is looking at increasing their HST to increase goverment revenue, suspect every other government will follow.

The Habs without Price are actually below average from what I have seen. They desperately need scoring so this dry spell has likely opened up management's eyes to make changes.

Jason Agnew - He was my brother's bud... met him many times
Todd Shapiro - I was working with him on the launch of his podcast
Alan Cross - I met him once at Humble and Fred's studio
Rick Hodge - I did some work with him
Kelly Cutrara - We're pals
Humble Howard - We're pals
Fred Patterson - We're pals

Thanks!

Great Lakes Brewery has been great. The guests enjoy their free beer (some even enjoy it during the recording) and when I run out, I just make a call and they deliver more. I literally have a free supply of great beer now.

But what really makes it work is that they're local, independent and... and this is the biggie... willing to invest in a podcast recorded in a guy's basement. As podcasts become more corporate and homogenized, keeping the local independent podcast alive will become more and more important. It's a perfect marriage.

I am late to the Making a Murderer documentary, up to Season 1 Episode 5 and can't believe what a Snafu this was by the police and the prosecution. So far Steven Avery has so far spent his settlement money on good representation, compared to his nephew with his public defender. Haven't looked further as I don't want to see any spoilers. Only issue is trying to get a good stream of the episodes without a Netflix account.

My Habs lost but they lost in overtime so they get a point. My Coyotes got shut out. Anyway, my Nets also lost, but my Cardinals won. Cardinals are going to the superbowl. Anyway, Kean is done. They lost the first game by one. Then won the second game by one and lost the third game pretty badly. They're done for the year. Only curling hope I have is that my trainer wins major league. Kean isn't going to the brier. That's not good at all.

Great Lakes beer. I am not much of a beer drinker, but I do appreciate good bear, and I am game to try something new to me that is from a smaller, local brewer. Locally for me, that is 5 Paddles in Whitby, not even two minutes from my office. With all the shit that mainstream brands have been peddling (eg. fruity, "ritas", what some would simply call a shandy and other "flavours) for several years now, hearing/seeing solid recommendations gives me an idea of something to try.

So now I have another "excuse" to go to Etobicoke or place to stop at when I am in the area. When, and it will be when, I go to Great Lakes Brewery (not to be confused with the very similarly named Great Lakes Brewing (Company of Cleveland, Ohio)), I will honestly (be able to) tell them that I learned of them through Toronto Mike - and that is exactly how the sponsorship system is supposed to work.

hijab heaven

Regarding a woman covering her head, consider these verses:

“For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, for as much as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have a sign of authority on her head because of the angels.”

No, not the Quran. It is 1 Corinthians 11:7-11:11 in The Bible.

January 17, 2016 @ 10:04 PM

hijab heaven V.2

The problem I think is that many people have this understanding of the head cover (whether they know where it comes from or not), as literally a symbol of man’s authority over women and her inferiority, from the Judea-Christian tradition, and wrongly assume the same applies in Islam. It does not.

January 17, 2016 @ 10:05 PM

Hijab Heaven V.3

Here is the Quranic verses for comparison related to this topic:

“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and to be mindful of their chastity: this will be most con­ducive to their purity – [and,] verily, God is aware of all that they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and to be mindful of their chastity, and not to display their charms [in public]beyond what may [decently]be apparent thereof; hence, let them draw their head-coverings over their bosoms. And let them not display [more of]their charms to any but their husbands, or their fathers, or their husbands’ fathers, or their sons, or their husbands’ Sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their womenfolk, or those whom they rightfully possess, or such male attendants as are beyond all sexual desire, or children that are as yet unaware of women’s nakedness; and let them not swing their legs [in walking]so as to draw attention to their hidden charms And [always], O you believers – all of you – turn unto God in repentance, so that you might attain to a happy state!” (The Quran 24:30-31)

January 17, 2016 @ 10:06 PM

Hijab Heaven V.4 'the clincher'

The Quranic verses clearly are dealing with matters of modesty and privatizing the display of beauty, and begin by addressing men to behave respectfully toward women without condition. Nothing at all implies the head covering is a symbol of subjugation or inferiority to men.

How do the same idiots keep recycling through the upper echelons?

Nakamura, the top executive for Goodwill in Toronto and much of Ontario, said Monday that the charity generates 85 per cent of its revenue from retail operations — but poor market conditions mean the stores will remain closed until further notice.

“I recognize this has all happened very suddenly and for those involved unfortunately that is the situation we are facing,” she told a news conference.

Nakamura, who was fired as head of Toronto Community Housing in 2011 after a spending scandal, apologized to customers and employees affected by the shutdown.

“I am thinking about you, I am doing everything I can to help bring clarity to the situation as soon as possible,” she said.

The shut down has left the organization’s 430 retail workers, drivers, and cashiers “shocked and deeply concerned,” according to their union.

Anyway, Habs will win the rest of their games when Carey Price comes back. They will find a way to beat the Leafs on Saturday though. The Cardinals are going to win the Superbowl. Yes they will because my Ravens are out.

@., caught the connection also. Nakamura's name is hard to miss. Just like Georgiou’s of the St. Michaels scandal,

"One reason St. Michael’s was unaware of Mr. Georgiou’s involvement in the York fraud, The Globe’s investigation has determined, is that, although at least one Infrastructure Ontario official knew about it, that information apparently was not shared with anyone. The hiring of Mr. Georgiou raises questions about whether former executives of Ontario’s procurement agency withheld this vital information from officials who ought to have known – including Infrastructure Ontario’s own board of directors."

doesn't anyone even Google them?
