PINHEAD OF THE WEEK
Mike McCourt marched through masses of morons to discover the person most deserving of the title Pinhead of the Week. Congratulations Santiago Calatrava! You're this week's winner. You designed a $25 million footbridge for our city. Two of your representatives showed up and expressed "artistic" concerns with the construction and want the work redone. Calatrava says the construction problems have nothing to do with him. The contractor says the bridge "geometry" is difficult and has pushed back the construction by another eight months.
Andy talked with Matt & Eric of Jack FM about his efforts to get on the cover of Avenue Magazine.
Check out his Facebook campaign and help him on his way.
MY RONA HOME
Amanda and David George joined us from Edmonton. They are trying to win a spot on the second season of My Rona Home.
Movie critic Louis B. Hobson was here to review new movies hitting theatres this weekend. We found out whether or not Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows part 1, The Next Three Days and Fair Game are worth the price of admission. Louis felt Harry Potter was too long, but very well done. The Next Three Days is not as good as it's European original, but the last half hour is very intense. You will be very angry at the government after you see Fair Game. It's about an
undercover CIA agent who was outed by the government after her husband wrote an unflattering newspaper article. If you can't decide whether to go see The Next Three Days or Fair Game, Louis suggested Fair Game.
FRIDAY DANCE PARTY
We ended the week with our Friday Dance Party.
