About the Golber

How can you ever really know me? Or anyone else for that matter? I don’t think you really can… you react differently depending on the circumstance. Like that scene in Stuart Little where Taylor Negron plays a toy clothes salesman and tells Stuart’s mom (Geena Davis) about the “many moods of Ben”. I love that scene! People are like that… I’m like that. The ‘mood’ I’m in for you may be different than the mood for Taylor or for Geena or for my wife. We get so set into different response ruts… but I digress.

My name is Terry Grignon and I’m relatively average except for the things that are odd about me. Hmmmm… what can I say?

Perhaps the best way of learning who I am is a smattering of my favourite things (‘course this doesn’t always run true; think of Maria in the Sound of Music):

A favourite joke, perhaps:

A mother mouse and a baby mouse are walking along, when all of a sudden, a cat attacks them. The mother mouse goes, “BARK!” and the cat runs away. “See?” she says to her baby, “now do you see why it’s so important to learn a foreign language?”

Maybe a favourite recipe:

A favourite movie:

A Christmas Carol: the Alastair Sim version.

Favourite song:

Anyway from the amazing album The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (1974) featuring Peter Gabriel and other members of Genesis (http://www.leaveitopen.com/petergabriel/petergabriel.html)

Favourite port maker:

Graham’s (http://www.grahams-port.com/)

Favourite card game:

Bridge! Although I enjoy Newfie Euchre when there aren’t any Bridge players

and I could go on… perhaps you’ll see more of me in my golb?

  4. I see that you wrote about some of the films shown at the 2008 Festival of Moving Media. I have been unable to find out anything about this year’s program. All links lead to the 2008 program and a short mention of the 2009 one with some links. I have sent a query to the webmaster, but I wondered if you could provide any info.

    • Sorry Mary. I’m in the dark for movie night so far, too. I am volunteering again but not for choosing the films, I’m just doing tech for one venue again.
