This upcoming Saturday May 1st is the ninth annual Free Comic Book Day. I can't believe it's up to nine already...time flies. Anyhow, I'm stuck working like a chump on FCBD, which seems wrong, pretty sure that I'm having my basic human rights oppressed by having to work on such an important national holiday.

Anyhow, that should not stop you from heading over to your nearest comic store and snatching up amazing comic free-ness (like maybe that Tick comic pictured above there). I will be sure to sprint to a store on my lunch break, grab up an armful of books, then run back, then complain about having to work and not being able to read comics. Life is so hard.

If there are two things that I love, it's the Mayfair Theatre and Roller Derby. Imagine the joy my cold Grinch heart gains at the possibility of combining the pair in an amazing Reese Peanut Butter Cup like impossible combo!

This Sunday night we welcome back the Rideau Valley Roller Girls to the Mayfair with a special screening of the acclaimed documentary Hell On Wheels. It was to be the first of our Sunday Night Geek Nights, but the schedule got too packed with other stuff. This awesome event will stand alone, and SNGN will blow your minds in May.

So join both of our Ottawa teams, the Slaughter Daughters and the Riot Squad, for the Ottawa premiere of Hell on Wheels at the Mayfair, Sunday April 11th at 9:20.

Music composer and director Mike Dubue hard at work during the amazing Night of the Living Dead: Live. One of the many awesome events which happen frequently at the Mayfair (besides for just good ole' fashioned movie screenings). I was told today of the possible follow-up film which Mike's going to give the 'Mayfair Live' treatment to, it will also be amazing (and I predict again it will also be sold out).

I admit that there was a slight hesitation in going to see the CJ Ramone show in Montreal. Thought it might be an over-the-hill rocker sadly riding the coat-tails of the band he was in years ago. Happy to report that it was great. Just great. It's clear that CJ loves the Ramones, that he knew the Ramones, and of course he was and is a Ramone. Did my heart good.
