Vanier College Blood Drive

On September 27th and 28th, an Héma-Québec blood drive was held at Vanier College. Though the moral implications of the ban implemented by the Canadian government on donations given by men who have sex with men have certainly created controversy (see Colin Golding’s article “If you Prick us, do we not Bleed?”), there is no doubt that individuals who have the ability to give blood, should. Each donation helps three people on average, and while awaiting the government to modify their discriminatory policy, donating generously if you aren’t affected by…

That’s How You Make Me Feel

A Poem By Anora   Blue eyes. Nothing but clear skies. That’ s how you make me feel.   When you look up, My heart can’t help but stop. That’s how you make me feel.   Sometimes we compete And it makes me complete. That’s how you make me feel.   You rap, pitter patter. You may give me a heart attack. That’s how you make me feel.   The first time. I feel like I’m in my prime. That’s how you make me feel.   I’m happy with you….

Entanglement Arts 


As everything in front of me gets turned around Do not drop me I’ll surely break and crack But toss a smile my way And I’ll toss one right back Two is better than one Or so they say I’ve always focused on having fun And never thought I’d see the day When I could look into reflective glass Having some semblance of what to ask My Self What do you ponder?

Laughter. With a Cause : Gala Accroche-Coeur fundraiser

Not everyone knows where they will sleep tonight. Some aren’t sure whether or not they’ll eat tomorrow. It’s no laughing matter… except in this case, in sort of is. Of course, this in no way indicates that a person’s dire situations are comedic. Rather, it suggests that laughter can help remedy some unfortunate predicaments. In this spirit, the 14th Gala Accroche-coeur turned to local comedians to raise awareness, and funds, to support Fondation Québec Jeunes. The Show MC of the evening, Stéphane Bellavance, opened the show by introducing a special…

It was a Breath of Fresh Air Ride

When people think of Nintendo racing games, there’s no doubt that Mario Kart comes to mind, and maybe even F-Zero for older fans. But there’s another game that often gets forgotten, buried underneath the discussion. That game is Kirby Air Ride, and it’s quite different from anything else. This game came out on the Nintendo GameCube way back in 2003, and was designed by none other than Masahiro Sakurai himself, the man behind the Super Smash Bros. series as well as Kid Icarus: Uprising, and original creator of the Kirby character. This game may have fallen by the wayside at the time of its release, but to those…
