Quentin Tarantino gets "BASTERDIZED"!!

This afternoon I attended the live taping of MTV Live, with Quentin Tarantino! It was my first MTV Live show, and I’ve lived here for about 5 years now, so I was uh… REALLY EXCITED!

The legendary director dropped by MTV to promote the release of his upcoming film Inglourious Basterds, as well as to announce the winner of the MTV Live “basterdized” parodies; and he came with actor Eli Roth, who plays “basterd” Sgt. Donnie Donowitz.

One of the paparazzi’s almost knocked me down as I was trying to take my pic, so Quentin Tarantino posed quickly as his bodyguard rushed him into the S.U.V.

Something about a big purple dildo…

He told a very interesting Hanah Montana story LOL

Quick pic before they dashed out… and I mean DASHED OUT!

Inglourious Basterds is set in the midst of WW2 Paris. Brad Pitt stars as Aldo Raine; a man who rallies a squad of ruthless U.S. soldiers known as the “basterds”, to perform shocking acts of retribution on the enemy… Their mission? “One thang, and one thang only, killing Nazis!”

Quentin Tarantino is one of the most celebrated filmmakers of his generation. He has a number of critically acclaimed films under his belt, for example: Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and of course the famous Kill Bill.

MTV LIVE, in conjunction with Alliance Films recruited film buffs, as well as anybody who “had the balls”, wit, and genius to win the Inglourious Basterds contest. Over 100 impressive/hilarious spoofs were submitted of “basterdized” versions of favourite scenes from Tarantino flicks. The winners won a Toshiba home entertainment package and also gets to attend the Toronto permiere of the movie.

Three MTV Live “basterdized” parodies were created to inspire contest hopefuls, and can viewed on demand on

Fun times!!




In an ABSOLUT world opportunities always pop up!

I am SOOOOOO EXCITED! Tomorrow I will be attending the Media Sneak Preview of the ABSOLUT Art Installation event, where I will be interviewing successful Canadian Artist, Justin Broadbent!

Justin Broadbent, a successful graphic designer, web designer, illustrator, and photographer has been commissioned by ABSOLUT vodka to transform the lower BAY subway station (An unused TTC line that was built in 1970s), to his vision of what an ABSOLUT world where opportunities always pop up might look like. His mission is to bring the phrase, “In an ABSOLUT world opportunities always pop up.” to life!

Justin was one of the feature artists at this year’s AGO MASSIVE Party. His recent accomplishments include; a CBC Bucky Award, two 2009 Much Music Video Award nominations, and the branding and web design for the Oscar-nominated animated short film, I Met The Walrus.

Operation Sock Monkey!

So I saw these cute little monkeys at Cat Tilt yesterday, during my tour with Wendy Woods of the Refinery. I was to shy to ask, so I just took a picture and just kept it moving… didn’t wanna be the ONLY grown woman asking about stuffed monkeys (even though secretly I ADORE stuffed animals!!) lol

Anyway so five minutes later, a lady walked in, and you can imagine my excitement when I realized she had something to do with these stuffed monkeys!!

Sooo cute!

I want one!!

It was Lindsay Hodgson of Operation Sock Monkey (OSM). Operation Sock Monkey is an initiative in support of Clowns Without Borders South Africa. CWBSA is an organization dedicating to providing laughter, hope and healing to communities affected by HIV/AIDS.
Handmade Sock Monkeys can be sponsored to be sent to children in need of a smile, or you can buy one for yourself! or me! All proceeds are donated to CWBSA.

Being born in a 3rd World Country, it warms my heart to see someone actually DOING something for these orphaned kids, and not just asking for money so that they can “send the money” to these kids!! Please support OSM, there’s so many children out there that need a smile.



Make sure you sponsor/buy a Sock Monkey!!
