Hi, I’m Tish. I am currently producing and co-hosting two podcasts, writing about media and myself, and creating a video essay series about fairy tale movies. So, this is a website where you will find all the stuff I make for the Internet. You’re welcome.
I write about myself, movies, media, pop culture, and whatever I like.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring! Hard to believe when you look around at this city covered in slick ice patches between piles of dirty snow. March is tricky like that.
If this were a video essay, I would just stand in front of the camera and SCREAM for nine and a half hours. Because that is how much time I spent watching all four A Star is Born movies last weekend and that is how they made me feel by the end.
The question here is; why did I care about having a boyfriend when I was only nine years old? I didn’t like boys. I didn’t want to kiss them. Or anyone. Why did I think having a boyfriend was such an important thing that I should do?
But I love being busy. I like gettin’ shit done. I like feeling accomplishment. I like the approval from the people for whom I am getting work done. I like have a purpose moment to moment. I like crossing off a to-do list. Feels good. Overwhelming sometimes, but then I get organized and delegate and prioritize and feel better.
let’s talk about grey hair and aging. aging is a thing that happens to all life forms. except those immortal lobsters and i think jellyfish.
i can’t write anything this week. i have not been doing well. in case anyone actually reads this i’ll just give you some advice that i probably won’t take myself-
Okay, I know last week I wrote about how Winter makes me sad/SAD but this week I need to write about how Winter makes me ANGRY.
’Tis the season to be sad, I tell myself, it’s not just me. Debatable. Yes, lack of sunlight and the cold and the snow affects my overall mental state. But I’ve also got my own shit dragging me down, so it’s just compounded, I guess.
How do you want to feel? It's a better question to ask yourself when setting goals and making plans than just What do you want to do?
I didn't know what to write today. Yes, today, the day I need to have this done. Because I am a procrastinator and it would just be too easy for me to take time on the weekend to write. Nothing on my mind today (that I'm ready to write about) so, here's a story.
I created podcasts with my friends about what I love to talk about most; movies and Doctor Who.
Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 7 “The Pyramid at the End of the World” and Episode 8 “The Lie of the Land”. We talk about what exactly the Monks' definition of consent really is, the flaws in their plans, and Missy's so-called recovery.
Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 5 “Oxygen” and Episode 6 “Extremis”. Capitalism and Catholicism. That sums it up.
Tish and Juliana got drunk watching Fifty Shades Freed and then talked about it. And Tish’s neighbour’s loud dogs, abortion & adoption, heteronormative societal expectations, sex toy designs, and tried to remember how all the secondary characters are related.
Tish and Juliana recap what they watched in 2018.
Tish and Juliana talk about the (lack of) logic of Santa Claus in movies. There are some major logic problems with the believability of Santa, but there's one big one that's never been addressed in movies and we need to address it now.
Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 3 “Thin Ice” and Episode 4 “Knock Knock”. We find out that Regency England was a bit more black than in the movies and people made of wood live forever if you make friends with the alien cockroaches in your house.
Tish and Juliana got drunk watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Rudolph's Shiny New Year and then talked about it.
Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 1 “The Pilot” and Episode 2 “Smile”. While we are sad to continue the podcast without Linda, we are happy to welcome our new mic. You're welcome to your earholes. We get to know our new favorite companion, Bill, and discuss emojis, robots, and crushes.
Tish and Juliana talk about Set It Up and how we watch movies. We agree that Set It Up is charming, fun, hilarious, and clearly written by women. With Cannes banning Netflix originals and studio directors clinging to the idea of "sacred cinema", what is the future of movies viewed on the big screen? We talk about our real movie theatre experiences that make us glad that we can watch movies in the comfort of our own homes with streaming services and dvd/blu-ray.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about the Classic Who Second Doctor story "The Tomb of the Cybermen". We cover Cybermen, the Second Doctor' new personality, racism, 60's TV structure, special effects, companions, kilts, and the death count. Oh, and it's Linda's last episode! Waaaah! :(
I make videos sometimes about my feelings and such. I used to make vlogs and talk to a camera.
Our Fourth Annual Quizmas Competition!

Tish and Juliana presented a panel at Ottawa Comic Con 2018.

In October, Juliana and I visited my hometown and spent as much time as possible near the lake.
Thanks to my friends at the OIAF, Juliana and I got passes to the 2017 Ottawa International Animation Festival! We went to as many screenings, talks, and events as we could manage and I tried to vlog through it.
