I love this so much.
My favourite thing I've stumbled across at the archives in a long time. From the great paper The 4th Estate: What's, perhaps, even better than this great article is an accompanying story a col...

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax Nova Scotia has what is generally recognized as the world's finest collection of wooden artifacts from Titanic.

Football + magic = Flag on the Play.
The internet's premiere football vlog… featuring THE DARK ARTS. I don't watch football, but I find this show helpful. I now know what teams worship Cthulhu and which are made up entirely of wi...

History. Writing. Movies. Fun!
Introduction
By day: helping people to connect with the province's past at the Nova Scotia Archives. I work on the website, liaise with community groups, plan special events, make fun stuff happen on the internet, and much more.

By night: I'm Batman! Actually, I'd probably be Wolverine.

I'm a strong supporter for the arts in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I volunteer for our independent theatre, Carbon Arc, which has been screening great films for one year. Last year I began writing a movie column for the Chronicle Herald. My preferred films are fun, scary, and weird. My blog serves are a platform for those movies and for local filmmakers.

I am interested in the way that technology shapes our communities and the way we learn. I have helped local businesses and non-profits get their footing in the ever-changing world of social media but I am not a social media expert. I volunteer for TEDxHalifax and regularly attend Third Wednesday meet-ups.

I do not own a cellphone. I've kissed Oscar Wilde's grave. You do not have to send me every news item about zombies. I got my cat shortly after watching Rosemary's Baby, and appropriately named her Mia.
