Death of princess... and decorum

I like to think that it’s this current generation of do-gooders, whiners, wailers, and social justice warriors who created mass hysteria all by their little selfie-taking “trigger warning,” safe space cadet-selves.

Ticket munchkins & vinyl revival

G4S Security Solutions is an international company based in Florida and partly owned by British and German companies. They’re the ones (Shouldn’t that be “Their the ones...”? — millennial ed.) who employ the little gremlins munchkins who are ticketing your car with reckless abandon in HRM.

Ballots &  buffets

Ballots & buffets

I was at the buffet table examining the sour cream, attempting to gauge the probability of whether it had been double-dipped, when mayor-elect Mike Savage strolled into his election night victory party at the Dartmouth Sportsplex. At least, that’s what I think I was doing.

I can’t be entirely sure, because I didn’t immediately notice that the man of the hour was among us.

Making the world happy for geeks!

It’s a bird — it’s a plane — it’s... models dressed up like d-list comic book heroines for some reason!

Fans of exagerrated cleavage might have got a little hot under the collar if they looked up, way up in downtown Halifax on a recent afternoon and saw Parisian-transplanted temptress Drakaina and actress Diana Hart posing for sultry shots on a rooftop.

Cape Breton Chit Chat

Sydney doc's bad day

Cape Breton emergency room physician Dr. Queenette “Quinie” Asuquo is a woman on the move. And I’m not just referring to her passion for international travel.

Nurse, I think I need a happy pill...

The Cape Breton nurse who whined to the provincial government about her high-end taxpayer-funded salary being made public continues to do quite nicely. Thank you very much. For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, Shannon Sidney of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital earned $127,403.44.

Media Madness

A ride on the wild side with the Glove Guy

Aside from the sexual fetishism that crosses into the realm of criminal behaviour, one source tells Frank Magazine that Murray James, a.k.a. “the creepy Glove Guy” (Frank 773), also doesn’t seem to mind engineering situations that could easily cause serious injury, or even death.

Global TV toilers hope to stave off strike

In the wake of the Chronicle Herald strike settlement, unionized Global TV workers hope efforts to keep them off the picket lines will be successful. On-air personalities and journalists from Global could be on strike if mediation later this month does not work out in the Montreal office.

Correction

In Your Tax Dollars At Work... (Page 13, Frank 773), we reported that the combined 2016-2017 payroll of the N.S. Executive Council Office and Premier’s Office was $4.1 million, more than double what it was the previous year.

Good call on wankery

Dear Frank: As I longtime subscriber to Frank Magazine I don’t always agree with what you have to say. But I enjoy the read. Like all readers I want to know what’s going on.

Halloween mask murder of boxer Donny Downey

Halifax had a curious tradition in the 1980s and into the 1990s. The Saturday night closest to Halloween was called Mardi Gras. Folks would dress as their favourite monster or alien or mother-in-law and roam around the city, oftentimes with flasks of liquid courage to bolster their fun.

Speaker's Corner

Keep calm and carry on... paying our salaries!

Way back when I went to journalism school, we did a PR/Communications course.

Wanker of the Week

Wanker of the Week: Desiree Vassallo’s Cone of Silence

What would happen if fire fighters only fought fires when they felt like it? Or if, when it came time to perform an emergency appendectomy, the surgeon on call chose to remain in bed snuggled up to her hubby?

AGNS and its Leibovitz Archive...

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia exhibiting a truckload of prints from a celebrity-obsessed American fashion photographer makes about as much sense as giving a chimpanzee a box of Kotex.

Dream team disclosure..

Although my organ has previously noted that Ryan Van Horne’s figurative fingerprints are all over Tarrah McPherson’s private prosecution of Frank Magazine, it’s really hard to believe the pair was daft enough to present evidence of their close relationship to my goodself during a recent appearanc

Second thoughts...

L’esprit de l’escalier is one of my favourite French expressions. It means thinking up a killer or knockout response to an argument only after you have left the encounter where the argument took place.

Words as tools, words as weapons

The 20th century became the first age of mass advertising and propaganda.

Two rare marine species caused a stir at the beach recently. On August 15, an 11-foot blue marlin wowed Crystal Crescent beachgoers at the first beach, while a 10-foot thresher shark startled nudies at the infamous third beach.
