Very cool! My organization (Accessible Media Inc.) has just launched the first TV guide for described video. It's got everything that airs on Canadian networks with described video (an audio track describing what's happening for blind or low-vision viewers).
Accessible Media Inc(AMI)-Services for the blind is what AMI is all about, via described TV at TACtv/AMI TV & reading services at VoicePrint AMI AUDIO. Programs, shows, news for the blind!

I've heard about Hilltop Pub. The address makes it sound deceptively close to my new house, but when I attempted to walk over, it proved to be way farther than I thought.

Donate to CJSR and help them buy new pants.
(I assume that's what all this fundraising is about.)
I donated to CJSR, Edmonton's community (and campus) radio station, this morning. It's something you should consider if you're a fan of Edmonton music, Alberta music, eclectic and independent music, i...

Just a quick hit to say Edmonton's got it going on right now.
With mature neighbourhoods, including my own Strathcona, seeing more growth and the LRT packed every day, Edmonton is a city making the right moves. (With room for more big ideas.) Throw in our “Super...

That's how I feel. I mean, if there's an event going on like the Street Performers or whatever, I'll certainly partake in truck food, but otherwise I want to sit down in a nice, comfortable restaurant.
