Subway plan gives short shrift to low-income riders Scarborough. LRT would have better served neighbourhoods in need, data show As with any transit decision, there are winners and losers. In Scarborough, where city council has decided to scrap plans for an LRT and endorse a subway, new immigrants and lower-income residents stand to bear the brunt of the decision. Demographic data from the 2011 census shows how the seven-stop LRT plan would have run through lower-income neighbourhoods and serviced a greater number of newly arrived immigrants. The new subway extension, which will take a different route and include only three

stops, bypasses two of the four priority neighbourhoods serviced by the proposed LRT and puts stops in low-density, higher-income residential neighbourhoods. While politicians at all levels of government have endorsed a new subway because it will run faster and eliminate a transfer at Kennedy Station, city planners have argued for an LRT, which in addition to being cheaper would have more stops and reach a greater number of people. “The proposed extension of the Bloor-Danforth subway would pass through largely stable residential areas,” says a staff report prepared last week. “Conversely, the LRT line will operate in an established corridor of proven transit demand that is currently being underserved.”

With low potential for growth around the subway stations, city planners worry that ridership levels will never justify the extra $1 billion to $1.5 billion it would cost. Meanwhile, 10,000 Centennial College staff and students, whose hopes had been raised by the prospect of an LRT station on their doorstep, will instead be trekking more than two kilometres from the new subway to class. “People are disappointed to hear that the LRT is not going to be coming directly to Centennial College.... They’re still able to get to the college, but having to connect to a bus adds anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes in additional commute time,” said Rosanna Cavallaro, Centennial’s associate vice-president for marketing and communications. torstar news service

Ontario’s governing Liberals are derailing the Scarborough subway extension by refusing to chip in more than $1.4 billion to help pay for the project, TTC chairwoman Karen Stintz said Thursday. • City council approved the subway on the condition

that the province provide all $1.8 billion that was originally pledged for LRT in the area. • Transportation Minister Glen Murray insisted the province is living up to its $1.8-billion promise to the city. Apart from the $1.4 billion that’s

allocated for light rail, about $85 million has already been spent on engineering and planning costs, he said. Another $320 million will go toward renovating the Kennedy subway station to accommodate a new separate light-rail line. the canadian press

TIFF’s economic impact

Unlicensed daycare complaints kept secret

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper pose for a photograph on the red carpet at the gala for their movie Silver Linings Playbook during last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The numbers are in: Tiff 2012 and three-year-old TIFF Bell Lightbox contributed about $189 million to the city’s economy between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013, a new study says. That number has swelled by about $50 million since 2008-09, the last time the organization paid a third party to do the math on its economic impact. The $189 million represents the organization’s full impact on the city, including the tourist dollars that flow in during the annual 10-day festival. NATHAN DENETTE/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Mississauga demands its slice of transit pie Big Move funding. T.O. doesn’t deserve extra cash for subways until Hurontario LRT gets funded, councillors say Mississauga city councillors say Toronto’s sudden shift to a subway for Scarborough had better not come at the expense of its planned LRT. “As soon as I heard it, I said: Uh-oh, where are they going to get the money?” Coun. Ron Starr said after hearing that Toronto City Council passed a motion Wednesday to pursue a Scarborough subway extension to replace the Scarborough RT,

instead of the light rail planned by Metrolinx. On Thursday, Ontario Transportation Minister Glenn Murray said the province would pay $1.4 billion of the $2.9 billion cost to build the subway line. With Mayor Hazel McCallion out of the country, other councillors picked up the argument McCallion has been making for months: Queen’s Park and Ottawa shouldn’t provide any additional transit funding for Toronto before Mississauga’s planned $1.5 billion LRT along Hurontario St. and other Big Move projects outside Toronto get funded. “Toronto already got $8.4 billion of Big Move funding that’s been allocated — the lion’s share,” said Coun. Bon-

Quoted

“Toronto will scream the loudest. Where does that put us on the pecking order? We don’t get the money, or to get it our project gets pushed back two or three years.” Coun. Ron Starr

nie Crombie. “Now they want more. “What about Mississauga’s portion?” She and other Mississauga councillors are concerned that the extra $1.1 billion Toronto would need to build a Scarborough subway reduces the size

of the pie left for its LRT. Starr and Crombie said Toronto should accept Metrolinx’s original, and less expensive, plan for an LRT. “It’s already been planned,” Crombie said. “What kind of a delay would all the other Big Move projects see so the subway can now be planned? Our project is ready to go.” Coun. Pat Saito thinks the Toronto decision was the right one. “In a city that already has a subway system, expanding the system and making it better just makes sense ... I will be interested, however, in seeing where this project will fall on the list for funding through Metrolinx and if it will impact our requests, or not.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

The Ministry of Education keeps the complaint history of unlicensed home daycares secret from the public unless they file a Freedom of Information request, Torstar News Service has learned. Parents can’t know if there have been any complaints, the nature of the complaints and if any action was taken. Concerns over the level of unlicensed daycare oversight in the province have gained prominence after a toddler died at such a facility in Vaughan on July 8. Critics of the daycare status quo say incidents like this might be more easily avoided if unlicensed daycares were brought under the auspices of the licensed system, where facilities undergo mandatory inspections and must adhere to stricter operating rules.

Runner-up to Giambrone won’t pursue legal action The runner-up to controversial New Democratic byelection candidate Adam Giambrone has opted not to pursue legal action against the party over apparent irregularities in the Scarborough-Guildwood nomination. Amarjeet Kaur Chhabra said Thursday that while she remains “disappointed” in the NDP over the debacle, she is letting the matter drop because the Aug. 1 vote is so close.

“I was obviously angry at the party, but I haven’t shed a tear in all of this,” Chhabra, a union activist, said in an interview. “I’m going to run for office again, absolutely.” Giambrone, a former Davenport city councillor and TTC chair, descended on the July 7 candidate nomination meeting with 12 supporters whose names did not appear on the list of eligible NDP riding association members.

While Chhabra’s backers challenged the supporters, NDP secretary Darlene Lawson personally vouched for one of them and dismissed all other objections. Giambrone, the former Toronto mayoral candidate, then won the nomination by a vote of 18-14. An NDP official said Thursday night the party was “pleased to move forward” after the spat.

IT’S TIME TO GET BUILDING T

ANDY BYFORD CEO TORONTO TRANSIT COMMISSION

his week saw City Council vote to extend the Bloor-Danforth subway line from Kennedy Station to Sheppard Avenue East instead of the planned conversion of the Scarborough Rapid Transit (SRT) line to an LRT line, contingent on funding. My role as TTC CEO is to provide advice to Councillors to help them make informed decisions and to ensure that they understand the wider implications of any change to a previously agreed-to plan. My

role is also to ensure that the best interests of the TTC and its riders – 528 million projected this year – is fully represented. My professional advice was very clear. I believe that, while both options (LRT and subway) are good and viable options, if affordable, subways represent the best long-term investment. I explicitly stated, however, that any decision to invest in a subway extension must not be at the expense of other, greater priorities, i.e. relief of conges-

tion on the Yonge Line, nor must it lead to a reduction in the TTC’s critical state of good repair program. I also advised Council that increased ridership on an extended BloorDanforth line will hasten the need for the replacement of the current signal system to allow us to provide greater capacity on the line. The decision to proceed with a subway extension means that we will keep the existing SRT operating while the subway line is constructed.

WHAT’S BEHIND WEEKEND SUBWAY CLOSURES? The TTC conducts nightly maintenance when the subway is closed from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. For major repairs, such as track replacement or signal upgrades, a subway closure that cuts into service is required. Under the TTC’s state of good repair program, areas of the subway system are earmarked for improvement on a priority basis. When locations are identified, staff meet to discuss the scope of the work, the impact on service, and whether or not other projects can be completed at the same time. This weekend, for example, crews will be replacing nearly 400 metres of rail between St Clair West and Dupont stations. In order to facilitate that work, subway service between St Clair West and St George stations must be suspended. While track is replaced, other crews will be brought in to conduct station cleaning, platform edging and vent shaft work at the affected stations.

A 17-year-old has been charged with cocaine possession, residents are crying “disrespect” and a privately funded basketball court looks like a bowl of Shreddies after a cruiser hopped the curb and drove into David Crombie Park during a police chase Tuesday night. It was about 11 p.m. when officers approached a young man on foot downtown. When the youth took off on his bike, police followed in a cruiser. Eventually, the chase led to David Crombie Park, near Front and Sherbourne streets. Police say the youth ran onto the basketball court. The cruiser followed. But the court’s unconventional plastic tiles gave little traction to the cruiser’s tires.

• The court was built in 2010 with a $22,000 gift from Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment. It is made of interlocking grated plastic tiles that look like the sides of a milk crate.

A YouTube video taken at the time shows the police car spinning its wheels and sliding around awkwardly, like a deer on skates. “It was never meant for a car,” said police spokesperson Victor Kwong.

A 63-year-old Lego fanatic from Windsor, Ont., has been offered an allexpenses paid trip to Legoland after being turned away earlier this month. John St-Onge tried to visit the theme park on July 6 with his daughter Nicole. The pair drove all the way to the Vaughan Mills shopping centre, but staff barred them from entering because they weren’t accompanied by a child. “My dad was embarrassed;

he felt discriminated against,” Nicole said. “And the manager wouldn’t even come out to talk to us.” Once St-Onge’s plight was picked up by various news outlets, including Metro, Legoland officials contacted Nicole and offered to arrange a return trip. She says the company is going to pay for admission, gas and meals. “He’s thrilled to go back,” Nicole said. LUKE SIMCOE/METRO ONLINE

jessica.smith@metronews.ca

Joseph Michael Liu Roqueñi has run about 250 kilometres in the past two weeks — just a fraction of a mainly barefoot journey from Montreal to Argentina — and is encountering some emotional hills and valleys. The Concordia graduate left Montreal at the beginning of June and plans to reach the southernmost tip of South America in two years, running barefoot or in minimal sandals. He spoke with Metro from

TUMBLR/FACEBOOK

Rutland, Vt., on Tuesday. “Canada was very short, as Montreal’s very close to the border,” he said. “However ... the first couple of days for me were like a roller-coaster, in the mix of feelings I was going through.” He left Montreal surrounded by family, friends and media. But by the first night, he was on his own and reality set in. “I’ve never done anything like this, leaving everything behind, finishing school, putting aside any work,” he said. Liu Roqueñi is devoting the next two years to running because he hopes it will make him a better person. “All the experiences and situations that I’ll be facing, I want to see how I solve them and how I gain from them in ... growing my virtues.” He’ll also be sponsoring a charity in each country he passes through. In Canada, it was

Pathways to Education. “When I get a lot of energy ... the runs are easier,” he said. “Other days I’m really, really tired and just looking at my watch, the distance and the time. I’m struggling, looking at the pavement, wondering how much more it’s going to take.” Liu Roqueñi said he’ll need more sponsorship to finish his journey. “I’ve put a lot of effort and money into this. All my savings,” he said. “So far, it’s not happening the way I’d like it to.... I’m running out of money.” Follow along

Detroit files for bankruptcy

Colour Information:

Once the very symbol of American industrial might, Detroit became the biggest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy Thursday, its finances ravaged and its neighbourhoods hollowed out by a long, slow decline in population and auto manufacturing. The filing — feared for months — put the city on an uncertain course that could mean laying off municipal employees, selling off assets, raising fees and scaling back services such as trash collection Creative (Designer/AD/CD)

“Only one feasible path offers a way out.” Gov. Rick Snyder

and snow plowing, which have already been slashed. Kevin Orr, a bankruptcy expert hired in March to stop Detroit’s fiscal free-fall, made the filing in federal court. Michael Sweet, a bankruptcy attorney in Fox-Rothschild’s

San Francisco office, said the city would pay current employees. But “beyond that, all bets are off.” “They don’t have to pay anyone they don’t want to,” he said. “And no one can sue.” Detroit’s population, which in the 1950s reached 1.8 million, now struggles to stay above 700,000. Much of the middle-class and scores of businesses have fled, taking their tax dollars with them. The Associated Press

Nazi café owner in Indonesia asked to explain his motive Bandung, Indonesia. His restaurant is filled with Nazi pictures. Now the city government wants to know what the deal is Authorities in central Indonesia will ask a restaurant owner to explain his reasons for opening a Nazi-themed café that has sparked controversy among locals and tourists, an official said Thursday. Soldatenkaffee includes a red wall of Nazi-related memorabilia, including a large flag with the swastika and a giant picture of Adolf Hitler. Its wait staff dresses in SS, or Schutzstaffel, military uniforms, and can be seen posing in front of the café on its Facebook page. The café, located in the

West Java provincial capital of Bandung, one of Indonesia’s tourist destination cities, has been open since April 2011. But a recent article in a local English-language newspaper has prompted angry responses from some foreigners and Indonesians on social networking sites. Ayi Vivananda, deputy mayor of Bandung, said a letter was sent Thursday summoning café owner Henry Mulyana to meet with officials to discuss his motives for opening the café and whether his objective was to incite racial hatred. “Those symbols are internationally recognized to represent violence and racism,” Vivananda said. Mulyana says his objective was to attract customers. He also denied being pro-Nazi. “I have a right to design my restaurant with anything that attracts people.” the associated press

Nazi-themed restaurant

Marketing ploy or proNazi café? “I’m just a businessman, not a politician,” said the owner of Soldatenkaffee, a café in Indonesia that some feel glorifies Nazi figures through its Nazi theme. Café owner Henry Mulyana says he’s not proNazi and doesn’t support Hitler, despite having a giant picture of him in the establishment along with Nazi memorabilia. “I’m sure that I’m not violating any laws,” said Mulyana. The controversy forced him to temporarily close. the associated press

But we also love to love it: More people visit France than any other country in the world. But now, after years of casually riding a reputation for stunning monuments and world-class food, the French are starting to talk about tourism as an economic benefit — and one they need to do more to capitalize on. This is a sea change in a country that has long prided itself on not doing anything as gauche as catering to visitors. “The problem is that in France we don’t value jobs in tourism,” says Didier Arino, a director of the consultancy Protourisme. “We conflate services with servitude.” The numbers show that something is amiss.

The outspoken comedian-actress was announced as one of the new co-hosts of ABC’s The View this week. Now word is they’re bringing on another new co-host as well, as both Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar are departing. I’d go with Canadian comedian Kelly Oxford. She’ll keep the loudmouth McCarthy in her place. Royal baby. It’s already the world’s most famous baby and it hasn’t even been born yet. While swarms of journalists camped outside St. Mary’s hospital awaiting the Duchess of Cambridge, the rest of the world took to Twitter to weigh in. One twit, @LittleBeckieee, said, “Kate & William. Please hold the royal baby up like Simba.” Cory Monteith. The Canadian actor/Glee star died in a Vancouver hotel room of drug toxicity. Even acting Vancouver Police Chief Doug LePard, who confirmed his death Saturday night, was touched by the sad news: “I watched Glee regularly with my daughters, and I know there will be shock and sadness in many households with the news of his tragic death.” Another promising actor lost to addiction.

Toronto celebrates milestone Nandi Tello, 10, left, with her mom Nobekezelo Tello, take in the birthday celebrations for Nelson Mandela held Thursday, outside Nelson Mandela Park Public School. Singers and dignitaries took part in celebrating the former South African President’s 95th birthday.

Hitting home

At 1:57 p.m., the crowd clapped for 67 seconds (the number of years Mandela fought the apartheid regime) as others around the world were to do the same at the same time. Mandela was jailed for 27 years under apartheid and led a difficult transition to democracy, becoming president in 1994. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Mandela “is proof that one person can change the world.” NDP Foreign Affairs Critic Paul Dewar He added he remains an inspiration despite his poor health. Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement that Mandela is “a model of humility, grace and forgiveness, whose life and teachings are an inspiration for all those who strive for freedom, democracy and reconciliation.” Canadians across the country recognized the day.

Health improving in hospital Mandela remains very fragile. The news that his health improved was another turn in the life of a man who became a global figure of sacrifice and reconciliation during the fight against white minority rule in South Africa. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

The Conjuring opens this weekend. HANDOUT

Seeing is not believing The Conjuring. Film’s chills only work if you think that spirits walk among us Liz: Mark, ever since I made the decision to live alone last year, I’ve avoided all scary movies. But in that 12-month hiatus, it seems nothing has changed in the genre. The Conjuring is full of the same old clichés: a freaky doll, a haunted music box and a spooky old house with a cellar full of cobwebs. What did you

think of it all? MB: It has all the clichés but with superior acting and direction. But Liz, here’s the thing: if you don’t believe in ghosts you just won’t be frightened. It’s not the supernatural that scares me, it’s my mortgage. LB: That’s exactly the reason I’m a proud renter. But I’m with you on the non-believing — maybe back in my Catholic school days the scares would’ve resonated, but I’m not losing any sleep over this one. However, there were a few jump-worthy scenes that

had me nearly spilling my popcorn. Did you close your eyes at all? MB: Only when I was tired from my busy day. What I did like about the movie was the interesting relationship between the married couple investigating the paranormal activities. I wish the movie was more about them. I also liked the 1971 setting, which made the movie spooky although I don’t know which was scarier: the wallpaper or the moustaches. LB: The wallpaper, defin-

itely! It made me think of The Shining’s Stanley Hotel. I was half expecting ghost twins to walk down the halls of the farmhouse. As for the Warrens, I found them hard to warm up to. I much prefer Vera Farmiga when she’s two-timing Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon in The Departed. But what about the poor haunted family, had you no sympathy for them? MB: Sympathy for Lili Taylor, yes, with her makeup smeared like that. But as for the rest of them, next time get a condo!

SCENE

The Perron family believe they’ve found their dream home — a tidy little farmhouse near Harrisville, R.I. It’s the perfect place to raise five little girls. But a malevolent presence is hell bent on turning their dreams to nightmares. When the bumps in the night morph into happenings a little more freaky, the family calls in paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren. But even these bona fide ghostbusters are no match for the evil that lurks around the farm. Liz Brown fills in for Richard Crouse this week.

The geeks are inheriting the Earth — well, San Diego movie and television studios, toy manufacturers, video game companies and, of course, comic book publishers. Outside of the Convention Center, fans had plenty of other chances to engage with upcoming movies, with nearby installations such as the Ender’s Game training simulator and the Godzilla Encounter, an experience that brings attendees into a simulated downtown Tokyo during a close-call with the famed giant monster and offers the first glimpse of his new design featured in the 2014 film reboot. From what we could tell, the new Godzilla appears to be a mix between the original version and the more dinosaurlike design from the muchderided 1998 film, though the trademark high-pitched roar is unmistakable. As for nightlife, Hitfix reclaimed its spot as the only party in town worth attending on the night before ComicCon’s kick-off after sharing Wednesday night with Summit Entertainment’s Twilight party

While official attendance figures are not yet available, this year’s San Diego ComicC o n appears to be on track to top last year’s, selling out its four-day and daily tickets to more than 125,000 fans. And many of those fans flooded the San Diego Convention Center floor Wednesday evening for the threehour Preview Night, sampling the countless booths from Gay rights

For the stars and director of Ender’s Game, comments made by Orson Scott Card regarding gay marriage are leading to questions about the issue as they promote the science fiction film. • Quote. “My view is I’ve been a member of the Courage Campaign for many years and I’m a little distressed by his point of view on gay marriage,” the film’s

director, Gavin Hood, said. “However, the book is not about that issue, so I hope people can still appreciate the book because I think he wrote a great book, and the themes and ideas in the book, I think, are universal and timeless and applicable, and I hope the book will still be appreciated as a great work of art. Card declined an interview request.

By the numbers

130,000

Started in 1970, the San Diego Comic Con attracted only 145 attendees in its inaugural year. Growing steadily through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, the convention took off in 2004, attracting just under 100,000 visitors. Since then it has continued to climb, reaching a peak of 130,000 in 2010 and returning to that number once again last year, in 2012, when it reached over 130,000. Event organizers are figuring conservatively this year and pegging the number at around 125,000 visitors.

•••••

One of the most upsetting films of this or any other year, Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Act of Killing uses a legitimized mass murder of men, women and children in Indonesia in the 1960s as its jumping-off point. But then it gets darker. Hailed as heroes by many, a gaggle of these selfprofessed “gangsters” are enlisted by the filmmakers to re-enact their atrocities for the camera, complete with screaming actors and gory FX. What follows is an unforgettable portrait of mankind at its most base state. Not for the faint of heart, but truly remarkable filmmaking. chris alexander

When visiting a marine park, it may be easy to assume that the giant killer whale that jumps in the air lives a happy and healthy existence. But Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s documentary explains that nothing could be further from the truth. In 2010, SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed by a 12,000-pound orca named Tilikum — a whale that had killed before. In interviews with former SeaWorld employees and orca experts, and with shocking footage, Cowperthwaite explores the tragic consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity. regan reid

•••••

••• • •

Mads Mikkelsen is excellent as a small-town teacher wrongly fingered as a pedophile by the rest of the community, but he’s acting in a vacuum. The supporting characters in The Hunt are all so broadly drawn that Mikkelsen’s subtle acting stands out all the more vividly. Intended as a parable about the dangers of groupthink, Thomas Vinterberg’s film is by turns powerful and unforgivably manipulative; instead of an ambiguous movie about guilt and blame, we get a heavy-handed melodrama.

This Canadian-made faux documentary about two filmmakers that get sucked into solving a missing conspiracist’s theory about a secret-society makes for compelling and suspicious cinema. Incredibly rich and thoughtful, Christopher MacBride’s low-budget directorial-debut combines archival footage, real-world conspiracies and convincing performances to craft a clever, suspenseful mystery that rivals any Tinseltown blockbuster. Perhaps Hollywood is where the real conspiracy lies. steve gow

Paul Raymond became Britain’s richest man by selling sex. As played by Steve Coogan, he’s the impresario behind a series of sexy shows and nightclubs in London’s Soho District; a flamboyant representation of Swingin’ England. The movie examines his business interests — Live! Nude! Girls! — and family connections — great performances from Imogen Poots as his doomed daughter Debbie and Tamsin Egerton as the beautiful mistress who broke his heart — but never rings true. richard crouse

THIS SUMMER’S ‘LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE’.” -Claudia Puig,

••••• Ever wonder how an actor lands a role? In times past, a casting agent would suggest a certain actor for a part based on intuition and knowledge, and hopefully the director would bring out the magic and they’d make a great film. Donahue’s juicy insider’s film brings together some of the greatest actors, directors and legendary casting agents of the past 70 years to talk star quality. Martin Scorsese says 90 per cent of a film is casting, and seems genuinely concerned that the agent’s personal touch is now replaced by corporate and commercial considerations. anne brodie

Red 2 Director. Dean Parisot Stars. Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker

••••• RED (short for Retired, Extremely Dangerous) was a surprisingly fun and funny star vehicle for a group of aging actors. Hoping to catch lightning twice, this sequel reunites characters from the original film with an expanded cast and international locales. Poor pacing muddles an already convoluted plot that tries valiantly to balance the addition of Catherine ZetaJones, Anthony Hopkins and Lee Byung-hun. But it’s the interplay between leads Willis, Parker and especially Malkovich that keeps the film on its feet. ian gormely

Director. Nicolas Winding Refn Stars. Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas

••• • • Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s followup to his sleek neo-noir breakthrough Drive doubles down on the idea of Ryan Gosling as a strong, silent antihero: this time out, he’s the heir to an American drug-running empire, stranded in Bangkok and feuding with a retired police captain who conducts interrogations with a machete. The slow pace, and pulsing synth score suggest that Refn is going for a mesmerizing atmosphere, but the overall effect is simply numbing. adam nayman

••••• On the surface, Dragon Girls, a documentary about a group of girls training at the Tagou Martial Arts School in China, confirms western stereotypes of Chinese society; girls are sent away as young as age seven only to be turned into emotionless icons of discipline. But director Inigo Westmeier digs deep and reveals a country at odds with itself; modernity forces parents to work non-stop with little time to instil their kids with the traditional values many still covet. The answer are schools like Tagou where children, stuck in the middle, push themselves to the limit in the hopes of even the faintest praise from their distant families.

65th ceremony. Neil Patrick Harris to host awards as American Horror Story bags most nominations with 17 Netflix’s House of Cards made Emmy history Thursday with a top drama series nomination, the first time that television’s leading awards have recognized a program delivered online as equal in quality to the best that TV has to offer. The nomination, one of nine nods earned by the political thriller, is a marker in the unfolding revolution in how we receive and watch video entertainment. “It’s really groundbreaking,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix. “It’s beyond our most bold expectations. We were thinking a single nomination would be a win ... It’s as much a win for Internet television as it is for the content creators.” The most Emmy nominations, 17, went to American Horror Story: Asylum. Close behind was Game of Thrones with 16 nods, while Saturday Night Live and the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra earned 15 nominations each, including nods for stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. The bonanza of nominations for Game of Thrones is the swords-and-fantasy show’s most-ever and includes a best drama series nod and three acting bids, including a supporting nod for Peter Dinklage. House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright received acting bids, along with a number of other primarily bigscreen actors who have migrated to TV for powerhouse projects, with Douglas and Damon among them. Joining House of Cards and Game of Thrones in the best drama series category are Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and last year’s winner, Homeland. Mad Men, which last year missed out on the best drama trophy that would have been its record-setting fifth, eclipsing fellow four-time winners Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and The West Wing, gets another shot

Harris to the rescue

Filling in. A host had gone missing for the 2013 Emmy nominations on Thursday, so in stepped — who else? — Neil Patrick Harris. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said actress Kate Mara from House of Cards was unable to make it because her plane had a mechanical malfunction and couldn’t take off from Santa Fe, where she is on location. So Harris stepped in to co-host with Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad.

this year. The major broadcast networks were shut out of the prestigious category, a repeat of last year and a particular blow with the entry of Netflix’s streamed drama. Boardwalk Empire was the only show not to return in the category, its spot claimed by House of Cards. In the comedy series category, nominees are The Big Bang Theory, Girls, Louie, Modern Family, Veep and 30 Rock, recognized for its final season. Arrested Development, didn’t earn a best comedy series but scored three nominations, including one for star Jason Bateman. Some pundits thought it might earn online’s first best comedy series nod, given that it won a trophy in the category for Fox before the network cancelled it. A six-year-old TV academy rules change allows online entries to compete with cable and broadcast programs, although so far Internet shows have popped up only in lower-profile categories. That changed with the 65th Primetime Emmys. The nominations were announced by Aaron Paul, a previous winner for Breaking Bad and nominated again this year, and Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris. An in-demand emcee, the How I Met Your Mother star earned a bid for hosting Broadway’s Tony Awards. Joining Spacey in the contest for best drama series actor are Hugh Bonneville of Downton Abbey; Jon Hamm of Mad Men; Jeff Daniels of The Newsroom and Damian Lewis of Homeland, last year’s winner.

Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines sparks parodies online — laughs ensue Every summer there’s a song that you just can’t get out of your head, no matter how dumb it is. I’m sure we all vividly remember Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe. This summer we have Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines, accompanied by its highly NSFW video. Don’t say we didn’t warn you

about watching it at your work cubicle. In the video, Thicke and Pharrell dance around naked girls while singing lines such as “I know you wanna.” A number of people have come out calling the video sexist, distasteful and degrading for women. Some

Cougars An ode to cougars with lyrics such as “Here’s an observation — you’re the oldest chick in this place!”

Puppets College Humour reenacted the video, exchanging nude girls with puppets. With this swap, the video went from R-rated to kidfriendly.

Blurred House In this parody Blurred Lines meets Full House. Who doesn’t enjoy watching John Stamos and Bob Saget dancing? Full House isn’t the only television show that got the Blurred Lines treatment. The music and dancing in the opening credits fit so perfectly, you’d think Robin Thicke sang the song for The Cosby Show.

critics even dubbed the song rapey, with the lyrics “blurring” the lines of consent. “For me it’s about blurring the lines between men and women and how much we’re the same,” Thicke told BBC’s Radio 1. “And the other side which is the blurred lines between a

good girl and a bad girl, and even very good girls all have little bad sides to them.” Thicke also responded to the criticism of the song and video being misogynistic. If there’s one good thing that’s come from the music video it’s all the parodies it has inspired. Mary Ann Georgantopoulos

Desserts Who doesn’t love desserts? Whether it’s a cake, a doughnut or a delicious pastry, one girl loves dessert so much, she wrote a song about it using the Blurred Lines music and video theme.

By This Time Tomorrow here’s hoping you head to see the Herd Honesty is the best policy. Edgy, self-funded Vancouver duo insisted on being brutally truthful in their lyric writing for new material Tarin elbert

tarin.elbert@metronews.ca

“We’ve always wanted the roots of our lyrics to come from an honest — often brutal — place. We figure no matter how carnal, angry, jealous, or depressed, instead of shying away from those strong feelings, bite that thing, and chew it.” So says Head of the Herd’s lead vocalist Neu Mannas, when telling Metro about his and guitarist Clay Frank’s philosophy behind the wording of soul-searing tracks like Devil Woman and By This Time Tomorrow, from their upcoming second record. Their single By This Time Tomorrow is ripping up rock charts from the band’s Vancouver home to the Maritimes, driven by a blistering vocal duel between Mannas and Mother Mother’s sultry songstress, Jasmin Parkin. “Clay had known Jasmin from growing up on Vancouver Island. When we knew it

The Herd is currently on tour with two stops in Toronto: Friday at Sugar Beach and Saturday at The Drake.

was going to be a duet, she was the first call we made,” Mannas explains. “The second she started singing we knew there was something really special about this song and how our voices interacted. “We have our lovely keyboard player Lydia Hol tearing up that part live. She also has quite the pipes!” What Mannas and Frank do best is deliver kick ass “modern blues with a helluva twist,” an intoxicating mix that pricked the ears of renowned producer Garth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nickleback), who eventually produced six tracks on the new record. Finger Eleven’s Rick Jackett and James Black were behind the boards for the other three songs. “We had met Garth through 99.3 CFOX’s annual Seeds band contest,” says Mannas. “We were a winning band and when we heard the man behind Rage Against the Machine’s first record was keen, we started writing like mad!”

After kicking around the West Coast scene for years, Mannas is clearly ecstatic over The Herd’s recent fling with success, made all the more gratifying by the fact that the duo also wrote the

cheques. “The best thing about making a record you fund yourself is you get to write exactly what you want to write, and work with exactly who you want to work with,”

says Mannas. “It’s an artistic freedom you normally don’t have, and we’re thrilled about how we put it together. From day one, we’ve been all about bringing storytelling back to

songwriting. “When we started writing songs together we knew there was something special. We wanted to bring big, rhythmic elements back to rock ’n’ roll.”

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES The Word

Justin Bieber Jason Sudeikis ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Mama, eye love you: Bieber branded once again

How does Sudeikis stay in shape? By gettin’ Wilde! Jason Sudeikis has been looking a lot thinner lately, and he says the secret is having a sexually active relationship with fiancée Olivia Wilde. “The truth is, I’m not getting up an hour earlier and walking on a treadmill,” he tells Elle magazine. “I have the greatest work-

out partner in the world. And you don’t need a gym membership for that kind of workout.” That seems to match what Wilde has previously said about the pair. Last year, Wilde told Glamour magazine that she and Sudeikis “have sex like Kenyan marathon runners.”

Looks like love had a lot to do with Tina’s knot-tying Tina Turner married her longtime boyfriend, German music executive Erwin Bach, in Zurich “a few days ago,” a Swiss official confirms to Reuters. The 73-year-old singer has been living with Bach for almost 30 years. With the civil ceremony out of the way, the couple will reportedly have a Buddhist celebration as a followup this weekend. “We do not have any information about names or number of guests,” the official says. Turner, who became a Swiss citizen earlier this year, has been living in Zurich with Bach for 20 years.

It would appear that Gallagher’s got someone looking back in anger MELINDA TAUB

ouses is Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, and the other is reporter Liza Ghorbani, who once profiled him for the New York Times. Ghorbani wrote about Gallagher in 2010 for the Grey Lady’s A Night Out With… series. A source close to Ghorbani claims that she and the married rocker began an affair that night, which continued on and off until Ghorbani told him she was pregnant last year. The source claims it was the news of her pregnancy that led Gallagher to cut off contact — he was apparently worried his wife would find out what he’d been up to. That plan is probably shot.

Justin Bieber’s tattoo obsession continues, his latest addition being a photo-realistic human eye on the inside of his elbow, according to E! News. The popstar later identified the inspiration behind the tat, posting a picture of it on Instagram along with the caption, “Moms always watching.” To hear his favourite tattoo artist tell it, getting the work done took some scheduling. “Justin called me around 10:30 p.m. last night and

asked if I could open up the shop. We are both so busy, and our schedules are pretty hectic, so I opened up the shop, and he came in around 4 a.m.,” New York City-based artist Keith Bang Bang McCurdy says. “Justin chose a female eye that best represented what he was looking for. I did the tattoo in black and white, because it complemented his other tattoos. I wanted it to complement him, and not be a distraction from him.”

LIFE

My suggestion last week that only wine and spirits make for interesting cocktails got under the cap of beer-loving readers who emailed me their favourite brew-based recipes. While I’ve never found the idea of Guinness and sparkling wine appealing (it’s called a Black Velvet), the classic shandy can be found on my back deck on hot summer days. Said to have originated in Britain (where a shandygaff was a blend of ale and ginger beer), the recipe has evolved into a blend of any style of beer and either ginger ale or lemonade. Making one is easy. Over ice, fill a glass with equal portions of the booze and mix, and you’re good to go. I find sparkling lemonade really livens up the drink and enhances its thirstquenching properties. If home bartending just isn’t your thing, you can buy a pre-mixed version. Rickard’s Shandy (473 ml, $2.35-$3.39) combines the Canadian brewer’s lager with lemonade, creating an interpretation with a freshly squeezed, lemony aroma and a light flavour trail of lemon and soft malt.

Into saucepan, pour about 1/2 inch of oil. Over medium-high, heat until it reaches 400 F on deep-fry thermometer. In small dish, mix cinnamon, sugar and salt; set aside. Line plate with paper towels. Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges. Three at a time, use a slotted spoon to lower wedges into oil. Cook 15 seconds per side, then use slotted spoon to transfer to paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with a bit of the cinnamonsugar mixture. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Spritz the tops of the tortilla wedges with cooking spray, then season them lightly with salt and pepper. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crisp and lightly browned. Remove from the oven, let cool for a moment, then taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.

Heat oven to 400 F. Split each pita pocket into 2 rounds. Cut each round into 8 wedges, then place all wedges in bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, tossing to ensure all are evenly coated. Sprinkle wedges with salt, garlic powder and smoked paprika, tossing to coat. Arrange wedges in even layer on rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until crisp and lightly browned.

Brazil still the right choice for 2014: Government Brazil’s government defended the country’s status as the 2014 World Cup host on Thursday, after FIFA president Sepp Blatter warned that recent protests there meant it might have been the wrong choice. At their height, more than one million people took to the streets during last month’s Confederations Cup, angry at Brazil’s poor public services, contrasted with almost $14 billion being spent on the World Cup. “The success of the Confederations Cup proves the correct choice of Brazil to host the World Cup,” the sports ministry said.

Rory McIlroy couldn’t make anything work. Bouncing back from a tough loss last weekend, Johnson began with a 6-under 66 on a sunny Thursday at Muirfield — another brilliant

He showed no signs of snapping out of his baffling slump this season, struggling mightily to a 79 that marked the second-worst round of his Open career. The only time McIlroy shot worse was an 80 at St. Andrews in 2010, but that was more a product of a brutal wind than poor shots.

Aries

March 21 - April 20 You may be feeling emotional but that’s OK. It’s likely you will get what you desire if you express yourself directly. A frank exchange of views may resolve a domestic issue.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 You need to do a bit more homework before you start something new. Your chart suggests you have overlooked information that could make a difference to your plans. Get it right the first time.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 You will discover the answer to a question that has been worrying you for ages. It may come as a bit of an anti-climax but the “big” questions are often like that. The answers turn out to be so simple.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 What’s done is done and cannot be undone, so stop wasting time wishing things could have been different. You are where you are and the only thing you have control over is what to do next.

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You will notice something that others have missed today and it may be something you can turn to your advantage financially. Is it immoral to do so? Of course not.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You have this urge to pack your bags and head out the door. But before you get on your way, let loved ones know you will be back. If not, they may pack their bags too!

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 You may be tempted to poke fun at someone’s efforts but before you do, understand how it could affect them emotionally. Not everyone is as confident as you.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You know that you are right and that the “facts” are not to be trusted, so follow your instincts and ignore those who say you are heading for a fall. Even if it turns out you are wrong, you self-belief will shield you.

Aquarius

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 You may be tempted to put on an act just to please certain people but why bother? You are who you are for a reason and it has nothing to do with make-believe.

Virgo

Horoscopes

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 An exciting opportunity will come your way today, but can you be bothered to do anything with it? For some reason you are a bit lethargic. Find a way to get enthusiastic.

Pisces

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 You may wish you could protect someone from the consequences of their actions but it’s better if they learn from their own mistakes. Lend a helping hand but that’s it.

Feb. 20 - March 20 The closer you observe people you interact with today, the more you will learn things about them that can be used to your advantage. It’ll give you a better understanding of human nature. SALLY BROMPTON
