People and places

Th-th-that’s all folks This year, the Carillon gave me the excellent opportunity to have conversations with several influential and interesting people every week. I really appreciate the opportunity and had a lot of fun discussing topics that people are passionate about. For the final instalment of my People and Places column, I’ve put together some of my favourite moments of my interviews.   CBC Morning Edition host Sheila Coles on the secret to hosting a ...

Buttonmashing with Butterfield

To be fair, spoof issue is a weird name for anything by Ethan Butterfield – Contributor Hey, everyone! Let me start off by saying that it’s been one heck of a semester; finals are coming up, and the pressure is on. And instead of studying, I’ve been blissfully ignoring any and all school work and doing what I do best – gaming. This week I’ve found a game that is honestly one of the coolest ...

Theatre department’s Attempts fall short

The whole may not equal the sum of its parts The theatre department’s March production of Attempts on Her Life (Martin Crimp, 2007) has just closed, following a four-night run. Attempts is a play which decided it would be avant garde and quirky well before the first line was ever written, and the production, as well as the audience, suffers for it. Attempts on Her Life is presented as a series of abstract vignettes related ...

Err… Daredevil season two Last semester I did a Jessica Jones season one review after binge-watching the entire damn thing in one night with a friend of mine.

So here’s my review of Daredevil season two, AKA, The Punisher Fucks Your Shit Up. While Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock is easily the ...

Buttonmashing with Butterfield

A Killzone retrospective by Ethan Butterfield Hey, everyone! So, as of recently, I’ve been recovering from the Black Plague, which has given me a lot of time to reflect on my life—nah, as if. I mostly just played video games all day while my stomach went twelve rounds with the Muhammad Ali of sickness. During that time, I found myself replaying what is probably my favourite game of all time, the original Killzone for Playstation ...

What are you going to do with that film degree?

Author: Hannah Grover | A & C Editor The U of R may not be Hollywood, but you’ve gotta start somewhere! The process of making movies is mysterious to a lot of people. It’s something that can only be seen through the eyes of the actors and the behind-the-scenes special features menu on a Blu-ray (are DVD’s outdated now?). The students of M.A.P.’s film department are shown something entirely different. As their core training, they ...

People and places: Chris Matchett

Bouncer, man-about-town, Chris Matchett Chris “Tiny” Matchett, Regina’s favourite bouncer, recently took some time to speak with the Carillon about his long-time part-time job.   When and how did you start bouncing? Well, it was one million years ago, back in 1992 when I was a varsity wrestler at the U of R. There was a bar across the street where the McDonald’s now is and all the bouncers were guys off the wrestling team… ...

Of wolves and krampus’

People and places: Brad Provick

One of Regina’s strongest people Regina strongman star Brad Provick recently sat down with the Carillon to talk about his love for lifting.   Why put yourself through all of this pain? Well, for me, it started as me trying to look good in a t-shirt, so I went to the gym to lift a little bit. I knew right away that I was stronger than everyone around me, just automatically, and I got talked ...
