The Big Sick – A must watch for all Desi film lovers

I want to dedicate this post to the #film #TheBigSick written and starring #desi #comedian & #actor #KumailNanjiani. This film was one of my favorite #desi #film as it truly captured the joy, pain and struggle of a #desi person growing up in the west (#America).

This film is a true masterpiece in my opinion, thanks to the love and care the gifted duo #KumianNanjiani & #EmilyVGordon put into this #film.

Though this #film is marketed as a #romcom I believe it has far more depth and dimension than what is expected in the #romcom genre. This #film beautifully touches on the gap in values between 1st and 2nd generational #desi living in the west, especially when it comes to #marriage, #faith, and #career.

I don’t want to give away too much of the #film but just say that it is a MUST watch for all #desi #film lovers. Besides it is currently is rated 98% on #rottentomatoes so you cant go wrong.

Your #desi friend,
#Kaikazi

Canadian Hockey Team begins quest to prove they are Hockey Overlords (once again) at World Cup of Hockey

If you haven’t heard, #Hockey which many consider to be #Canada’s favourite pastime has a new tournament, well kind of a new(ish) tournament known as the #WorldCupofHockey tournament which began this weekend in #Toronto. The tournament is heavily endorsed by #NHL as the official international competition between International #Hockey Elites since the #NHL no longer wants to allow their players to compete in the #WinterOlympics due to financial and player insurance issues. The competition is being advertised as a competition to determine which country is the “OWNER” of #hockey, to answer this very important question there will be 8 teams competing including #TeamSweden, #TeamCzechRepublic, #TeamRussia, #TeamFinland, #TeamSweden, (yours truly) #TeamCanada and two brand new teams including #TeamNorthAmerica and #TeamEurope, which are essentially comprised of players who weren’t quite as good to make it to their own national team. Now there are many people who hate the idea of #TeamEurope and #TeamNorthAmerica but personally I love the idea of having two teams that have a healthy dosage of #Canadian #MapleSyrup that I can cheer for.

The competition began with #TeamCanada pounding #TeamCzechRepublic 6 – 0 to open the competition; it was very fitting that #Canada’s favourite child #SidneyCrosby (aka #SidTheKid) scored the first goal for #Canada. Following that dominant performance, #TeamNorthAmerica (which is mainly comprised of #Canadian players) pounded #TeamFinland 4 – 1 hence proving once again that #Canada is the ultimate supreme #Hockey overlord (but I suppose I should wait till the competition ends before I start gloating)

Anyway, if you are watching the #television or just killing time then you might as well tune in to cheer for our boys at the #WorldCupofHockey. Go #Canada Go!

Always cheering loud for #TeamCanada (and #TeamNorthAmerica)

Canadian Tatiana Maslany wins Emmy for Lead Actress

If you haven’t heard, #Regina’s very own #TatianaMaslany won an Emmy for lead actress in a TV drama series for her role(s) in #OrphanBlack. This is big #Canadian news as Emmys is pretty much the Oscars for PrimeTime Television, so this was a MASSIVE win for the #Canadian. Everyone seemed surprised that our very own #TatianaMaslany won over favourites such as #TarajiHenson (#Empire), #ClaireDanes (#Homeland) and #KerriRussels (remember her from 90s show #Felicity?), but critics and audiences have fallen in love #OrphanBlack in which #TatianaMaslany plays not 1…not 2…not 3…but 8 different roles, that’s right you read correctly; #TatianaMaslany plays a grown up version of each of #Octomom’s 8 children in #OrphanBlack…just kidding… #OrphanBlack is not about #Octomom but about clones and #TatianaMaslany plays 8 different clones.

Anyway, I believe this win will push #TatianaMaslany into becoming an international ‘IT’ actress, especially considering she in the highly anticipated film about #BostonMarathonBombing, Stronger, alongside #JakeGyllenhal coming out in 2017. This is great news for #Canada aka #HollywoodNorth as current top #Canadian actress #RachelMcadams has kind of fell off the radar after a slew of indie flops so hopefully #TatianMaslany can rep #Canada on the silverscreen.

Congrats to #Tatiana for making #Regina and #Canada proud!

If you are looking to binge on a new show, why don’t you support fellow #Canadian #TatianaMaslany by binging on #OrphanBlack,

Ottawa's Rideau Canal turns green baffling scientists

If you haven’t heard, #Ottawa’s landmark #RideauCanal turned GREEN recently baffling locals, tourists and scientists. The canal which is internationally known as it becomes one of the largest outdoor skating rink annually each winter has become an internet sensation as thousands have started dubbing it as #RioCanal, in reference to the poor green sewage water that often turned up at swimming pools at #RioOlympics.

This led the city of #Ottawa to start an investigation as scientists were originally baffled however after an official investigation, scientists has deemed this as a sign of an impending #Armageddon event … (just teasing) … actually scientists have found that the sudden change in colour was due to toxic blue-green algae. There is now a lot of budget shuffling going on in #Ottawa, as there has been both a political and public urge to have the historic canal cleaned up for #Ottawa2017, which is the big #Birthday bash that will occur in #Ottawa to celebrate #Canada’s 150th year during #CanadaDay in 2017. In the meantime, the city of #Ottawa has issued a statement to locals and tourists to refrain from playing #Pokemon at the canal until further notice.

Canadian Prime Minister is voted amongst Best Dressed Men of the Year by Vanity Fair

Hello Fellow Canadians,

If you haven’t heard, our #PrimeMinister #JustinTrudeau has been voted as an International #Fashion Superstar by acclaimed #VanityFair magazine for their annual #InternationalBestDressed Edition. #VanityFair selects only 10 men and women for their coveted list, and our #PrimeMinister was the sole #Canadian to be listed.

Not certain if #JustinTrudeau actually dresses himself or has a team of stylists (fingers crossed our taxes aren’t going to a stylist) or if he simply relies on his wife #SophieTrudeau but in any case #JustinTrudeau is now part of an elite group of incredibly well-dressed men and women. This means that our #PrimeMinister has raised the #fashion bar for all of us #Canadians, as such simply donning your favourite #Canadian #Hockey team jersey with a pair of your favourite jeans might not cut it anymore as we now have a reputation to hold.

Personally I am a bit surprised #JustinTrudeau was picked over #Canadian #fashion titans like supermodels #CocoRocha, #DariaWerbowy (or even actor #RyanGosling) but then again I exclusively shop in the bargain aisle for all my clothing so what would I know, but how do you feel about #JustinTrudeau’s style?

Please note when answering this question, it’s important to put aside your feelings about #JustinTrudeau (his campaign, his party, policies, etc) aside and objectively judge him strictly for his #style/#fashion or swag (as the young kids would say).

Always keeping it stylish, your #Canadian homeboy,

Canada wins 3 GOLDS during opening Paralympics weekend in Rio

Hello Fellow Canadians,

If you haven’t heard, the #Paralympics started last week in #Rio, and our incredibly amazing #ParalympicTeam had a GOLDEN start.

Nothing but love to;
1. #AurelieRivard for getting #Canada’s first #Gold with her World Record breaking performance in the #Swimming pool, she also has a #silver so far
2. #BrentLakotos who is an incredible #wheelchairracer who also has both a #Gold and #Silver so far at #Rio
3. #MichelleStilwell is another #wheelchairracer (and politician) who also claimed #Gold in #Rio

I saw a news report about how viewership has dropped significantly for the Paralympics compared to the record setting viewership #Olympics was getting, while this is not a surprise to me, I do want to remind my fellow #Canadians that the #Canadian #ParalympicTeam is full of incredible, dedicated and hardworking #Canadian athletes with incredible circumstances who DESERVE your support and respect, so if you are killing time on social media, you might as well take a few seconds to show some of these athletes your love and support.

Go #Canada Go
#Paratough

Always cheering loud for Team #Canada, your #Canadian homeboy,
