spark of vivacityHey all!!

Sooo, after hearing from some of you guys about what type of programming you’d be interested in seeing happen and after the positive feedback we received from you after the last time we did this, we are bringing back the FREE (teens only!) movie night on
Friday, May 1
starting at 6:30pm

We’ll be watching the latest installment in the Hunger Games trilogy: Mockingjay Part 1
Mockingjay pt 1


Yes, FREE.

(if you’ve never been to a movie at the library before, just letting you know that we have a full theatre-style screen that we’ll be projecting the movie on…we’re talking a proper movie showing here)

Oh, and in case you weren’t aware of the library’s usual hours of operation, you may not have noticed that this is an after-hours event.
That’s right, the library will be closed to the public as of 6pm that day, so we’ll be bringing you guys in after we’ve already kicked ever else out!!!

And for the rules portion of this little bit of advertising–

So, in order to do that, you can either come in person to the Information Desk next time you’re at Maple or Bathurst Clark Resource Library
Or Call us at 905-653-7323 (and tell the operator you want to talk to Maple or Bathurst Clark – Information)
Or Email myself or Alexandra with your name, age, and phone number (so we can give you a reminder call)

So that’s it – I hope to see you guys there.

Please feel free to invite friends along – the only rule is that they have to be a teen!!

There is limited space due to fire-emergency restrictions on how many people we’re allowed to have in the room, so sign up ASAP!!!!!!!!

Music Minute: Shut Up And Dance Already!

A Saying to Live By:Dance as if no one’s watching, sing as if no one’s listening, and live every day as if it were your last.”

So get up, crank the volume to as high as it can go, press play, and dance. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, whoever you’re with, just dance the dance for dancing’s sake.

Why? Because life and it’s worth celebrating. Also it brings out the happy so shut up and dance!

Walk The Moon’s Talking Is Hard and Walk The Moon are worth a listen. These albums make for some great tuneage for springtime long distance driving. Because who doesn’t want to dance in the wind with the sun on your face? That is why music exists! So we can shake off our cares and just live in the moment. You don’t need a partner to dance or a room full of people. Just blast a song and move.

Until next time music lovers, Happy Listening.

Here’s to unforgetable dance sequences!

Couple of things to make you chuckle this weekend.

First, you just can’t escape Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” these days.  That song is everywhere.  You’ve heard it, you’ve heard various parodies, but have you heard it with Death Eaters yet? ‘Cause you’re about to…

The fact that these guys managed to thread “Headwig’s Theme” into the chorus and other places just makes me happy in so many ways.  Bravo all!

Second, Ryan Reynolds posted the first look of him in costume as Deadpool, and it’s *cue three bears reference* juuuuuuust right…

First Look at Ryan Reynolds’ DEADPOOL Costume is Beary Good

The more I look at it, the more I realize there was no other way for Deadpool to make his first official debut than on a bear-skin rug channeling Tom Selleck.  Well done Marvel/Fox!

By the way, they’re currently filming in Vancouver.  And how could they not?  Wade Wilson is Canadian after all!

Stand proud you crazy, sword-wielding, gun-toting, fourth-wall-breaking representative of our nation!  Stand proud!

Now I’m gonna have to try a chimichanga before the movie comes out next February.  I’m not even completely sure what they are…

Random Fandom Presents: Is that…Batman?

You know you’ve seen everything when you find yourself stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic alongside Batman….

Comic conventions, you have to love them. How often would you get to find yourself next to the likes of Batman if it wasn’t for the Cons? Especially since the caped crusader is a very busy guy with places to go, people to see, and cities to save. But it looks like even super heroes deal with the same commuter problems as the rest of us.

So if the Dark Knight gets grid-locked in the Batmobile then what happens to Wonder Woman’s invisible jet when she has to park her plane at the Pearson Airport? That must be a huge clearance to land headache.

Hey guys, how goes the illustrious March Break??  You all having a good time sleeping in?  (and of course, by ‘sleeping in’ I mean staying in bed well into the afternoon….ahhhh, those were the days!!  Le sigh, last time I got to do that I had mono and that was decidedly less than enjoyable.)

Annnywho, yeah!  March Break!!  Huazzah!  And then the bad news – it’s Thursday…meaning it’s almost Friday….meaning it’s almost the weekend – and of course – that means, it’s almost Monday and you got back to school again.  So sad.

Well, chins up!  All that really means is it’s that much closer to summer!!! =D

Annnd, speaking of summer, what are your plans?  Anyone thinking of getting ready for a job?  Either a summer job or something of a more permanent/non-seasonal nature?    I just got a lovely little note in my email today from a friend that there is going to be a student job fair next week Wednesday (March 25) from 3:30-5:30pm.

COSTI, in partnership with Employment Ontario and United Way are hosting the event…instructions are to dress for an interview as they will be done on-site.
Address: 7800 Jane St.
Tel: 905-669-5627 

job fair 2015

Sooooo, yeah.  Want a job?  Seems like a good place to start!! =D

And in the meantime, enjoy the last few days of your lovely break….
