Time to PAINT the Town

Paint has been rockin’ stages since their 2009 debut, Can You Hear Me? The eclectic rock-pop Toronto-based outfit are no strangers to KW and tonight they return with their latest efforts including the 5 Year Anniversary edition of that first release. OTN chatted with Rob Johannes (lead vox) about coming back to the Region, getting

30 Years of Green Slime….

We grabbed our youngest (the 11-year-old, who is also our household movie criitc….) bought the buttered popcorn and caught the 1984 Ghostbusters in action on the big screen. The theatre was not at all full Sunday night.  One person had a Ghostbusters t-shirt on.  I guess I was expecting more. www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt239UfpQBY So… 30 years later…

Knights, fried Mars bars and those darn ice cubes.

I’m back after a week off..a week of shuttling our youngest around to various Toronto hotspots, including the annual “sign that school is almost here” CNE and Medieval Times.  (Those knights have the best hair don’t they?) The almost-Grade 7 boy hit the Fire Ball ride four times at the Ex.  Yeah….I wimped out on that

Local Country Gal Heads to Lucknow

I have to give kudos to clubs in the Region who feature local acts to open for headliners. Case in point – at the Terri Clark show this summer in Guelph, club owners hired an acoustic three piece with a firecracker lead singer to warm up the crowd. From originals to Carrie Underwood (and even

Hope and Help – There are local supports in place:

As the world reacts to the news out of Hollywood  surrounding the death of Robin Williams from an apparent suicide,  it is a good reminder to all of us that many right here in our own community might need some support. **IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY – PLEASE CALL 911** -Here24/7 Waterloo-Wellington-Dufferin 1-844-437-3247  (call anytime to

The best (highest?) outdoor view in the region (and a good paycheque too)….

 This has to be one of my favourite interviews of the year… I’ve been watching Jamie Parker from our studio windows at 305 King West for a while now, and now he waves over from his perch at 220 plus feet.  Yup.  Jamie climbs some 220 steps up to the top  of a construction crane

Summer splash
Wanted: Summer

I’m not going to lie. I follow Santa on  Twitter (@OfficialSanta) His first tweet out of the gate this morning? 21 weeks until Christmas!  He also added in some “ho ho ho’s…..”. Tomorrow is August 1st.  Don’t make me play a video from the 80′s to underscore just how bad things really are. Where is summer?

The Warning Track

Marcus Stroman; Aaron Sanchez
Parting with Prospects

There is just one day until the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline, and teams in contention are likely asking themselves this very question; “are we willing to mortgage the future to win now?”. The Toronto Blue Jays fall into that very same category. While they’re very much in contention, Alex Anthopoulos has to decide whether

The Roller Derby Girls

I’ve been following the Tri-City Roller Derby teams for a while now.. all thanks to our 570News producer Matt Head (A.K.A Matt S. Faction).  He’s a ref  with the league and married to Stacie A.K.A Stacie Jones… (you know, like Casey Jones from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). They are paramedics, baristas, graphic designers and teachers
