#EDITORSNOTE: TOP TEN SINGLES OF 2020
2020 was a year indeed, but despite being filled with one tough blow after another, Music was there for us to guide us through these challenging times. While some of the year's biggest smash hits turn back to the drumbeats and synths of the '80s for inspiration, this is a good thing as that nostalgia translates to happiness and dancing.
While nothing beats a great Music Video, we're seeing that the success of a single doesn't necessarily depend on a flashy video. In fact, Megan Thee ...
#EDITORSNOTE: TEAM MR. WILL’S TOP TENS OF 2020

#EDITORSNOTE: MY CATFISHING ORDEAL – A TALE OF SVETLANA AND “DESMOND”
Catfishing is luring someone into a relationship by means of a fictional online persona.
We all dread scam e-mails that come in our inbox and thankfully, in this day and age, many of us have developed enough of an awareness to identify maliciousness. You might click on that message in your inbox from an unfamiliar sender, telling you to click on this or log-onto that, whether it be on your e-mail or social media accounts. You take one look and realize right away it isn't legitimate. You ...

#NEWMUSIC: MR. WILL – “BALLADEER”
The Covid-19 pandemic has given me a chance to re-ignite my love of singing. Many weren't aware but in a past life I spent many years competing in singing competitions north and south of the Border, winning trips to Asia twice. I recorded a couple projects and even signed a deal with an international publisher. To this day it brings me a smile when super-modest royalty cheques arrive in the mail.
balladeer is a collection of covers I recorded in my bedroom during this isolation period. No ...

#EDITORSNOTE: STAY TUNED. STAY SAFE.

We look forward to delivering more promotions for Advance Screenings soon again as well as more theatrical release updates, which you might understand are a little slow of late. Believe me, I was ...

#EDITORSNOTE: A LOOK BACK AT THE 2010S
As we approach the end of this decade, let's take a look back at some of our favourite memories from the past ten years! I started out late 2009 as a Blogger and never could imagine all the memories that would be created nor all the opportunities the Website would afford me. Back in 2009, we were standing behind the barricade as a fan and in 2019 we are now one of the City's red carpet staples whether it be TIFF or a Movie Premiere.
People ask me all the time how I juggle several hats and to ...
#EDITORSNOTE: MR. WILL’S BEST-OF 2019 LIST
If there was ever a year that contained highs and lows for me, 2019 was that year. My heart was broken losing my best friend and companion Billy in March. Since then there have been good days and bad days. I try to keep myself occupied always as it keeps my mind off things and I've decided this was the way I would cope. The Holidays this year will be extra tough and while I appreciate people quick to comment, "Just get another dog, you have so much love to give", it really isn't that easy. I am ...
