Riveting Productions: More than just theatre

Riveting Productions is like no other local theatre company. It remains focused on student based members, with over 80 per cent of members studying at Memorial with a varied focus of study.

“When we started Riveting, we wanted to make sure that if people wanted to learn how to do stuff in theatre, there would be an outlet for them to learn and explore to see what they were interested in,” explained co-founder Stephanie Curran.

Special Feature: The Racing Turtles

There is a misunderstanding about high school friendships. This belief that we will meet up in coffee bars between meetings, and hang out every night playing board games in our thirties. The reality is TV sitcoms have given us a … Keep Reading

Feature: The Bonavista Social Club

Sometimes the REAL Newfoundland and Labrador gets lost in the shuffle of row houses and screech ins. Our hearts lie truly in the depths of rural Newfoundland, down by the water in the coziness of small, yet connected communities. The … Keep Reading

My Complicated Relationship with Drake

Things are complicated between me and Drake, and judging from the subject matter of a vast majority of his songs that is probably the way he likes it. I thought of this as I lay in bed listening to More Life the morning after it was released. (I probably would have listened to it as soon as it hit the Internet but I had belated St. Paddy’s Day plans the night before). I was excited about a new Drake album…er playlist. So excited in fact that I signed up for Apple Music in case it was a streaming exclusive (and quickly got rid of it a few days later when it messed with my meticulously organized iTunes library). I’ve been a fan of…

Pizza Lovers, Meet Olio; Olio, Meet Pizza Lovers

I love pizza just as much as the Ninja Turtles do so I think I know pizza. At some point during February, I passed by the old Stogger’s Pizza location and saw that a new pizza place was setting up shop. A few days later, my roommate sent me the link to their website via a Facebook message and I was intrigued and a few days after that I was kicking off the weekend with some take-out from Olio. It was right in the middle of the St. John’s Burger Battle but I wasn’t feeling it so much so I decided to spend my money on something I was pretty sure I would enjoy. According to their Facebook page, Olio…

Kris V The St. John’s Burger Battle

in Features by
oKweT.St.117

As I wrote last month, The Overcast had sponsored The St. John’s Burger Battle, a month long event featuring fifteen restaurants serving up their own version of a burger with the winner being crowned at the end of February. Like the 2016 Poutine Challenge and 2016 Mac and Cheese Showdown, I took part in the St. John’s Burger Battle. I have previously written articles plugging the event and then followed them up with a write-up and review of the dishes I tried. This time around, I only managed to try three out of the fifteen burgers. This is a personal worst for me out of these three events. Unlike the last two events, I DID remember to vote for my…

A Thank You to the Victim of the Snelgrove Case

in Op Ed by
Fire Snelgrove

With the verdict of the Snelgrove case on our heels, I want to scream as loud as I can that the jury must have been a plethora of idiots. Of course, as a woman I want to stomp up and down and say the justice system isn’t fair and we need to reevaluate the law but I have yelled that statement a few too many times in my life, without any avail. I have come to terms with a lot of the injustices in the world, because I have to get up every morning and survive. I have had to change perspective on a lot of actions in order to live as a woman. It’s something we do, we brush…

Feeling Like A Criminal (Podcast)?

As a society, we seem to be fascinated with crime. If you watch the local evening news like I do, you know that a large portion of the stories each night deal with the courts and there have been countless television shows based around the police procedural. I spent fifteen years watching CSI and was on board for multiple seasons of its spin-off shows as well. What is it about crime and specifically murder that gets us all so interested? In my previous article, I wrote about my friend Courtney Mona’s YouTube channel and came out as a sort of YouTube denier. Another aspect of the entertainment world that I don’t often subscribe (pun Intended) to is the podcast, though…
