I recently got to paint the streets of New York City red as I explored the city on foot (and by Uber) last week. One of my last stops was the Metropolitan Museum of Art at Fifth Avenue, which is honestly my dream location in terms of where I would like to work in America after […]

My Three Favourite Live-Action Fairytales

My Three Favourite Live-Action Fairytales

1. The Princess Bride (1987) The first movie on my list is a true classic. The Princess Bride (1987) is about a woman who agrees to marry a king after losing her true-love, only for said true-love to pop back up just in time to start some drama before the wedding. The storyline contains love, betrayal, revenge, […]

Fun Facts About the Real Hercules

Fun Facts About the Real Hercules

We all know Disney’s Hercules: the shy red-head with muscles of steel and a heart of gold. The real Hercules, however, was perhaps one of the least child-friendly figures in Greek mythology. As an avid watcher of  Hercules (1997)  (by avid I mean a couple of times a month) I was totally devastated when I […]

I have spent a lot of time studying buildings lately, and I have recently come to the conclusion that domes are legitimately my favorite thing. There is something about the vastness of domes and the complicated mathematics involved with building them that just makes my little, nerdy heart ablaze. I have picked out three of […]

Hero (2002) is a wuxia film—a type of Chinese martial arts film that is inspired by literature and focuses on the journey of a pre-modern martial arts hero—centering around a nameless warrior during the forming stages of the Qin Dynasty. The warrior, literally referred […]

The Famous Art Playlist

I can confidently say that we are currently living in the age of digital music. We no longer have to wait in line for CDs only to spend the next few years coveting them like a newborn child to prevent our favourite tracks from skipping. No, we can just look up entire albums on YouTube instead. […]

View If You Dare.

View If You Dare.

  October is one of my favourite months, despite the fact that it marks the beginning of “Pumpkin Flavoured Everything” season. I love October partially because I finally think “Fall” when I look out of my window in the morning, but mostly because I know that Halloween is right around the corner. Stores begin putting out […]
