Former Leaside High Football Player Scores Big as Night Manager at McSorley’s Wonderful Saloon

When Sean Leonard, night manager at McSorley’s Wonderful Saloon on Bayview Avenue, told me he was a star running back from 1986 to 1988 for Leaside High School’s football team, the Leaside Lancers, I was skeptical. Sure, he’s got the height, but not the formidable build one might associate with a football player. Too slight for the gridiron it seemed to me.

Review: Force Majeure

TOKYO TRIBE REVIEW

Tokyo Tribe, directed by Shion Sono, is an action packed rap-musical based on the manga Tokyo Tribe2 by Santa Inoue. The film revolves around a bunch of differently themed Tokyo gangs battling each other. There are a lot of pop culture references, e.g. Biggie Smalls and Snoop Dogg, which is quite humorous to us westerners. This is based on a manga, so expect some really over the top cartoon style logic and sequences. Continue reading
