  The Bologna Cookbook By Kevin Phillips There is nothing like waking up on the weekend and frying up some bologna and eggs. Well Kevin Phillips has taken this traditional Newfoundland breakfast and turned it into a variety of meals. At first glance one would ask is there anything else to do with bologna except the classic frying with a ketchup to dip? In fact, Phillips brings bologna to a whole other level of sophistication. Featuring two hundred recipes, Phillips realized bologna is not just a Newfoundland staple, but it is recognized across the country. This is not a book as such but a different perspective on a sausage we have all taken advantage of for a long time. Spicy…

  I am a movie buff. Actually, the term movie aficionado might be a better description. I just LOVE movies. I’m the kind of person who can watch the same movie over and over again as not only a form of entertainment but as a form of comfort as well. There’s just something so alluring about entering the world of the movie for a couple of hours and escaping reality. It’s a nice mental break. As one of my favorite childhood movies, The Neverending Story, once proclaimed – albeit it was about books, not movies, but it can still be applied – “Have you ever been Captain Nemo, trapped inside your submarine while the giant squid is attacking you?…Weren’t you…

Even though waiting at the stoplight can take only two minutes, it sometimes feels like a lifetime. Eyes fixated on that blank black circle, like staring into an abyss and waiting for the flicking green arrow guiding you left. It feels like an eternity. When your eyes begin to wander, you may have noticed some paintings plastered on traffic boxes. Solidified sceneries captured in time. Christina Hamlyn is one of the artists behind the traffic box project. If you venture across town, you will notice the extent of her talent. From a Newfoundland version of Van Gogh’s Starry Night to a caribou – her own work and other paintings vary throughout the city. Hamlyn has been working in effort with…

Follow your dreams. You can be anything if you try. Reach for the stars. All of these overused cliché statements were plaguing my Pinterest. At 31 years old, you have to keep scrolling and think: “If I had my time back.” Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda right? Then one day I got motivated. I watched my group of lady friends make changes in the world that were significant. I decided my fate was in my own hands. Pinterest was right. Why not try an online magazine? I am a journalist and I have been freelancing for over 8 years. It’s been a hard gig but I have stuck with it. I have not remained consistent but I was all like, ‘I want…

 Photo Credit: Mike O’Reilly (www.mikeophoto.ca) A little over a month ago, man-of-many-hats, Kenneth J. Harvey released a music video for “Happiness Kills”, a track by St. John’s alt-rock act Young Maniacs. I had the chance to talk to both Senor Harvey himself, as well as Aaron Hickey and James Greene of Young Manics about their current endeavours and the film-making process. Young Manics are a Placentian-St.John’s-Ukrainian band comprised of Aaron Hickey, James Green, Peter Collins, and Andrew Small, and new member, Iryna Borshchova. The initial core of four began playing in 2008 and finally released their first album, Solidarity Songs in 2013, which resulted in a Music NL nomination for Alternative Group of the Year. Hickey said that he “had…
