Asylum Shakes it down with Prox!

Shakedowns : Baby carrots with natural seasoning!

Last week we teamed up with Proximity, Ryan Malcolm (Canadian Idol Winner), Jeff Lurie and Carly Heffernan. Our mission was to take tweeted cravings and translate them into songs about shakedowns. We had to create 8 videos per day for a week and we will be on it again next week!

So stay tooned!

Martin Short Screening

One of Canada’s greatest comedy treasures, Martin Short, paid a visit to The Second City on Mercer St. on Tuesday night to reconnect with his family, the family who helped create the CBC comedy special I, Martin Short, Goes Home, which he shot in Hamilton last summer. Don and Shereen had the awesome opportunity of doing the stills for this production.
