If you have never checked out CHAT TV’s YouTube channel, you may want to now.

They’ve just recently put up an Archive Playlist and are entertaining requests from people that want to see specific stories put up. Whether it was an old civic election, or the Tigers winning WHL championship, or one of the downtown fires.

Here’s one of the old stories that is on there now. I miss the Waterslides.

From colourful cupcakes to ceremonial centerpieces, Cake Break turns flour and eggs into sculpted art. I don’t know if I would eat skin or eyeballs, but you have to appreciate this talent.

Join the Revolution - Nov. 4th & 5th @ The Monarch

Join the Revolution - Nov. 4th & 5th @ The Monarch

The Monarch Theatre is pleased to present two special screenings of V for Vendetta on November 4th and 5th at 7:30PM.

Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked vigilante known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled airwaves, urging his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V’s mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.

If you missed what this was all about, a small group of people took to the streets for 48 hours to raise awareness for homelessness in Medicine Hat. The event, aptly named, “Hatters Without Homes”  took place on the weekend with around 25 participants. The participants used shelters and food services as provided by the city which has come with a lot of criticism including a couple comments a long the lines of, “They were out their wasting all the much needed food and resources.”; however, it’s been cleared up that they re-supplied all that they took as well raised money for charity while they were out there.

From an e-mail I received from Monday Nights at the Movies:
We have three great films lined up for this fall. We’ll be at the Galaxy for the first three films this season – be sure to mark Monday September 21 (Goodbye Solo), Monday October 19 (The Hurt Locker) and Monday November 9 (Is Anybody There?) on your calendars. December’s film will be screened on Monday, December 14, but the venue and film selection will be determined later this fall.

Passes and brochures are now available at the Information Desk of the Public Library and Fresh Flowers and Gifts (in Riverside – 63 3rd St. NE). Also, we’ll have a booth in front of the Esplanade this coming Saturday, in conjunction with the Arts Festival – drop by to buy your passes, or just to talk about films.

Prices are unchanged from last year – 4-passes are $26, and can be used by more than one person at each showing / 9 passes are $50 and can only be used once for each showing (except for December and May, when you can invite a guest to take advantage of any unused dates). Single tickets are available at the door for $8 –  students with a student card are entitled to 2-for-the-price-of-1 admission.

Goodbye Solo has a rating of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes; it’s rated 14A in Alberta for coarse language. For a description of the film with links, visit the Monday Night at the Movies website.

Residents can now watch Medicine Hat City Council meetings online.

Starting September 9th, the City is adding the option of downloading or viewing a video broadcast of City Council meetings from its website. To date, residents have had the choices of attending City Council meetings or viewing them live via Shaw TV.

“This is a new value-added service to our residents that allows people to view the entire City Council meeting when they want in the comfort of their own home or any where there is an Internet connection, including from a smart phone,” says Mayor Norm Boucher. “This option gives residents 24-hour, seven days a week access to Council meetings.”

The first available online video broadcasts are the Tuesday, September 8th City Council meeting, followed by the Wednesday, September 9th Special City Council Meeting on the Strategic Review of the Natural Gas and Oil Production business. All videos will be available the following day as a video broadcast and / or download on the City’s website, located here.

When Sean and I were looking around for local websites awhile ago we stumbled upon some obscure and unknown websites (at least to us), among them was the Sunridge Observatory and the Medicine Hat Astronomy Club website. I was very interested to find out that such a thing even existed around Medicine Hat; albeit, a bit dated. CHAT TV recently did an interview with Thor Jacobson (by the way, that is an awesome name), and Robin Laing, owners and technicians of the program.

The Monarch The Princess Bride

The Monarch The Princess Bride

“It’s a lively, fun-loving, but nevertheless epic look at the nature of true love.” – Rita Kempley, The Washington Post

Welcome to the magical kingdom of Florin, the ultimate imaginary land, complete with dashing heroes, cowardly princes, rhyming giants, shrieking eels, rodents of unusual size, fancy swordfights, and yes…even some kissing. When the lovely Buttercup is kidnapped (and saved from an undesirable engagement to be married), she is pursued by a mysterious stranger in black who bears a striking resemblance to her true love Wesley, who she thought had died many years earlier. As Buttercup and her motley crew of captors make their way across the land, trying to evade the man in black, she comes to realize that courage, honour, heroism, friendship and love are just life’s little excuses to have a great adventure. A clever, satirical, and outrageously funny fairy tale for all ages, The Princess Bride is arguably one of the most entertaining films of all time.
