Happy Halloween

halloween-scary-scene

Happy Halloween! I hope you guys have a safe and raucous weekend and a great Monday. We might even see some costumes in class next week.
On the show I read a couple short scary stories from the reddit page r/shortscarystories. In movies there are a couple fun Halloween events happening around town including the Princess playing Rocky Horror Picture Show and the Apollo having quite a few viewings of different Halloween classics. There are also several club events going on in uptown, most having costume competitions.
In the news, there have been several discoveries in prosthetic limb technology that are awesome. There were some sci-fi-esque developments in a battery based on he human intestine and a diamond being used as an advance storage device.
Lastly, in old news, an escapologist was going to get out of a straight jacket while hanging upside down in the middle of a street on July 7th 1928. It’s interesting that the field of escapology has not changed much in 88 years.
If you guys would like to contact me tweet me @NextWeekNow, and I’ll talk to you Next Week Now.

Good Fridays with Williams in the Morning

Good Friday mornings, lead to good Friday nights

Good Friday mornings, lead to good Friday nights

Hey Yall

With my first Blog post for my new gig Friday mornings at 9-11am as part of the morning show crew. I want to give you a little intro into what the show is all about .

This was my third show in and what a time to be alive. Its a show about having fun and getting ready to tackle the day and more importantly get ready for the weekend. I like to Wrap up happenings from the week that was, and make sure everyone is fresh for the most important days of the week Friday and Saturday. A lot of Shop style talk where its all fun and games with a lot of  wacky dumb and silly topics.

For this show it is the first Friday evening where I wont be working all semester long. So a lot of the show was spent tailored around going out, or at least drinking a few cold ones.

What was on the Show for Friday February 26th

  • The Report: Today’s top Canadian news stories from Americas finest news sources. We Talked about Paytan manning and his attempt to deny the latest allegations against the hall of fame and recent Superbowl winning quarterback.
  • As well we did some Big league Banter. For this it was focused on the NHL Trade deadline and the MLB spring training my notably the Blue jays and Joes Bat fips lasted news on contracts. As well Old boy John Gibbons and his cannon slipped in there.
  • Our daily Seinfeld clip of the week: Was about my trip to Toronto over reading week and the pleasant traffic that existences in that town. Well Kramer let us know really the only way to beat Traffic…
  • Fridays Five the biggest, best, top, most all star quality list of 5 for this week: Was people you meet on Spring Break. this is one segment you don’t want to miss on any Friday.
  • Finally Wrapping the show up with My bone to pick in this world… THE SO CALLED KING OF THE JUNGLE

All music on this show was centered around country music and cold cans… as i was getting ready to go to Dallas. Selfish I know but its fun to do every once and a while.

Laurier Students Meet Their Federal Candidates

12144738_943994165693270_2026914570433482347_n

On Wednesday, October 7th, Waterloo candidates gathered in Laurier’s concourse to debate and discuss their platforms for the upcoming federal election.

Representatives from all four parties were present: Conservative’s Peter Braid, New Democratic Party’s Diane Freeman, Liberal’s Bardish Chagger, and Green Party’s Richard Walsh.

The debate was primarily focused on student issues, with the concern of student debt playing a key role in each of the candidates’ discussion points.

 

Each party came forward with a plan of action to combat student debt. The individual candidates’ main points were as follows:

1. Chagger stated that the Liberal Party would not only increase access to student loans, but also absorb interest in the repayment time until students are earning a minimum salary of $25,000 a year.

2. In Braid’s plan, the Conservative Party would use Canada’s current Student Loans and Grants program to eliminate in-study income from loans, for students who are balancing a job while attending post-secondary education.

3. Walsh projected that by 2020, the Green Party would be able to eliminate tuition fees altogether. The party would also forgive any student debt over $10,000, contribute annually to local municipalities to hire young people, and have a guaranteed annual income.

4. Freeman proposed that the New Democratic Party would eliminate all interest on student loans over the next 7 years, help establish 40,000 new permanent internship and co-op opportunities for students, and build affordable housing for new graduates.

 

Another hot-button topic that arose during the debate was the lack of Aboriginal students entering the post-secondary sector.

All four candidates agreed that the government must work alongside Aboriginal communities to invest further in their education.

Walsh, Freeman, and Chagger noted that the current Conservative government’s cuts to Aboriginal communities must be restored in order for Aboriginal students to thrive. Braid stated that the Conservative government is prepared to assist each Indigenous community on a nation-by-nation basis.

 

To close off the debate, candidates gave a final statement to summarize their arguments.

1. In Braid’s closing statement, he emphasized that the Conservative Party is “the only choice to keep our economy strong, and taxes low”.

2. Walsh argued that the Green Party has “the vision to get our economy on track for an environmentally sustainable future”.

3. Freeman stated that her background in engineering has prepared her to invest in Waterloo with “stable funding for roads, bridges, affordable housing, and transit”.

4. Chagger closed by stressing the Liberal government’s values “compassion, inclusion, and respect for the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms”.

Each candidate brought on strong tactics to entice students and delivered key messages as to how they would deliver change within the community.

 

As the debate came to a close, students took the time to get to know the candidates before they will be placing their ballots in the upcoming voting days.

Windy City Slaughter is a new deathcore band coming out of Grade Prairie, Alberta. Their music draws upon dark imagery to get their messages across found in their lyrics focusing on facing fears and overcoming them. They are a four piece band comprised of vocals, bass, drums and guitar, as well as interesting additions like their signature Pig Squeals! Oink! WCS is currently touring across Canada this June with their last show THIS SATURDAY at Dstrct (19+) in Guelph promoting their newest 6 track demo “Alpha”! If you’re a fan of Protest the Hero, Suicide Silence, Bring Me The Horizon or any others like that then you’ll love these guys! If you have a chance to make it out to the show let us know your thoughts!

 

OKAY SO this isn’t directly music related BUT I think it’s actually pretty cool, remember k-os? No not Kris-Kross! The Canadian rapper, K-OS! WELL he has hooked up with Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company to make a new beer called “Golden Vox” which is set to be release at the Session Toronto Craft Beer Festival on June 13th.

NEXT! Bad Channels is a Toronto based electronic duo made up of Nick Grottick and Jess Gierusz who meet as teeners and morphed into what is now Bad Channels in 2012! Originally producers, they have now released their first single “Sad Channels” with Buzz Records. It is said that this release is a “high point” for Bad Channel, but since it’s sad and bad should it be considered a low point, I’m not sure how this all works! BUT what I do know is that it is a great single and really showcases their producing talent as well as their artistic side. Next Saturday, June 20th is their first show for this single in Toronto at the Horseshoe Tavern BUT they will also being in Guelph at Jimmy Jazz on July 18th so if you miss them downtown head to Guelph!
