Rob Ford's Immaturity

I think this is from Rob Ford's first term as councillor in Toronto between 2000 and 2003 (based on the speaker's reference to Councillor Johnston, presumably Anne Johnston, who was defeated in 2003.)

Do you think Ford has matured much since then? Sadly, I imagine Toronto city council meetings would look like this more often than not were Ford to actually win the mayoralty next month.

And people wonder why Sarah Thomson was willing to suspend her campaign just to stop this guy?

Blue Valentine Q&A following TIFF 2010 screening (partial)

I recorded this post-screening Q&A for the film 'Blue Valentine' on Sept 15, 2010 at TIFF. Director Derek Cianfrance, actor Ryan Gosling and young actress Faith Wladyka answer questions. Michelle Williams was not present. (I started recording about a third into the Q&A after taking some pics...missed a sweet moment when Ryan led a 'Happy Birthday' song for a swooning audience member, sadly not me.)
