The Very Last TIFF ’08 Post, I Promise

This is how I'll remember Bob -- tiny, but emphaticI know, I know, I’m sick of hearing about the film festival too.

But I’d be remiss if I didn’t provide this vastly entertaining round table featuring Adam (Nayman), Jason (Anderson), Mark (Peranson), Andrew (Tracy), Scott (Foundas) and Bob (Kohler), all hunkered down in an unidentified pub and talking about their TIFF experience for the Eye Weekly video page.

As with all conversations in bars, it gets more confrontational as it goes on, but in a good way.

I would have joined them, you know, but technically Eye’s podcasts and videos are forbidden territory for me these days. It’s funny; I appeared in that paper’s very first issues — there was a half-assed attempt to make me the television columnist — and I helped out with their TIFF coverage a couple of years ago when they needed someone at the last minute.

But now, when they all sit down for a convivial mid-TIFF discussion, I must walk away, an exile, piano music tinkling in the background like it does at the end of every episode of “The Incredible Hulk”.

I guess I’ll just have to make my own podcast thingie. That’ll show ’em …

  1. Hey Norm,

    just thinking of you walking away with the Hulk music on makes me all sad… next year, you can dress up as Bob and we’ll have you on. So start working on your Bob impression. That, or we can establish some sort of bipartisan cross-promotional scheme. So I’ll assume that JA and I will be invited to contribute to a certain publication’s online endeavours any day NOW.
