You Mexicans

When a Spirit Halloween store opens in a deserted strip mall, three middle school friends who think they've outgrown trick or treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store Halloween night. But they soon find out that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters. [source]

An angry evil spirit that haunts a vacant retail space? Or an angry evil spirit that haunts seasonal pop-up stores?

I freely admit a movie branded with the Spirit logo is a bit crass; the worst kind of consumerism. But here's the thing: the Spirit Halloween store at the center of this film feels like an afterthought. I started to get the impression that the filmmakers didn't actually have the rights to use much of Spirit's stuff, and thus were forced to improvise with material that has very little to do with the store. [source]

Explains the titling on the poster.

From Strike Back Studios. What else has it released?

Next Halloween: Spirit Airlines: The Movie.

Thatcher's Techbase

Guns III?

Oh, it's Young Guns III!

I understand that Emilio and Lou are not young anymore, but the adjective is kinda critical to appeal to nostalgia, particularly since "guns" is such a generic noun.

Boosie can drop "Lil" and still be recognized; Lil B cannot.

Weapon 5 comes 35 years after the original, much like fellow '80s hit follow-up
Gun: Maverick, and the fourth Cop movie, Cop: Axel Foley.

The Fast and the Furious franchise is an outlier, being able to toggle between "fast" and "furious" in titles.

Guns III? Nope.
Young III? Nope.
Weapon 5? Nope.
Lethal 5? Okay, that works.

None of the public toilets I used in Toronto provided seat covers. No seat covers in a washroom in North America's busiest shopping mall. No seat covers in a washroom in a four-star hotel. No seat covers in a washroom in an international airport.

Only $40 USD!

C'mon, man.

The free gift? Fentanyl.

Uzbek cuisine and photographs of technology and sexuality is also not a combination I'd encountered before.

Antidepressant Thursdays

// Toronto, Ontario, Canada

How do you do, fellow marts?

Toronto has a 24-hour Popeyes, but not a seven-day public transit pass.

Also, what do you mean the subway doesn't begin running until 8:00am on Sundays?!

Cannabis shops and notices of proposed development are absurdly ubiquitous here. In 10 years, Toronto will just be condos and dispensaries.

"As you get high, we encourage you to reflect on the land that you are on. These luxury condos are located on the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee."

// Toronto, Ontario, Canada

It's early afternoon on the second day of the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. I'm at the Hyatt Regency Toronto, where TIFF's Press and Industry Centre is, pooping.

Someone enters the toilet stall beside mine.

What is that noise?

I hear what sounds like—

Is he… Is he masturbating?

I notice a shadow of his right arm.

Oh, he's definitely masturbating.

He knows I can hear him, right? Because he could definitely hear me…

After he softly orgasms, I see his bare right foot, then said right foot in a light blue sneaker.

Was he naked? Or did he… Did he ejaculate in that shoe?


So: Press or industry?

It's early afternoon on the second day of the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. I'm at the TIFF Bell Lightbox to see a film.

I go to pee before the screening begins.

Which washroom is…?

Nope, that's the women's washroom…

I notice a sign.

TIFF is committed to maintaining an inclusive environment for all of our visitors.

To solidify this commitment, TIFF Bell Lightbox washrooms are now only labeled by the facilities available in each room.

Please continue to use the washroom that is most appropriate for your needs.

Left: Handicap-accessible, stalls, urinals, sinks.

Right: Handicap-accessible, stalls, sinks, baby change table.

Dare the mystery masturbator use the right washroom?
