It’s not often that Antoine Dodson and Edward Cullen are in the same room together but this happened just a couple of weeks ago at a Halloween party.  Dressed as Antoine Dodson I circulated the room warning all in attendance to hide their kids, wives and husbands because rumor had it there was a rapist in the area who was adamant he rape everybody.  I stumbled upon Edward Cullen and provided him with the same counsel that I had provided everyone else.  Edward seemed appreciative so we engaged in a lengthy conversation on various topics including Movember.  As we talked, it was revealed that Edward Cullen was not Twilight’s Edward Cullen at all but rather Thomas Cantley, a filmmaker from New York and cancer survivor.

 

Thomas was diagnosed with testicular cancer last year at the age of 26 and was very open with me about his experience.  He explained that he was reluctant to go see a physician despite the persistent pains he had been having in his lower abdomen. He told me that it wasn’t until his testicle swelled to the size of a grapefruit and the pain overwhelmed him that he actually went to see a doctor.  By this time the cancer had spread to his stomach and it appeared his chances of overcoming the disease were slim.  After showing me the massive scare from his surgery that runs up the center of his stomach, Thomas told me he had created a charity specifically for testicular cancer called Ballsy.

 

Now cancer free, Thomas is in the process of creating the Ballsy Journey that will see a group of people push a 7 ft. ball from Halifax to Toronto as a means of creating awareness and a proactive attitude towards testicular cancer.  In addition, he is making a documentary called Ballsy that will tell the story of his own experience and the experiences of other testicular cancer patients.

 

Thomas is an incredibly positive and ambitious young adult that has seen the light and made a serious commitment to make a difference in this world.  I encourage all to visit the Ballsy website and join the Ballsy Journey Facebook Group.

 

Furthermore, if you happen to see a 7 ft. ball being pushed down the street in the near future or you find that your own balls hurt more then normal… Look into it!  If you don’t have balls, just check out the 7 ft. ball.

A Series of Self-Posed Questions and Answers Regarding Twilight

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2010 by Jordan

Twilight Eclipse is set to hit the big screen in a couple of weeks, which has created quite a buzz amongst tweens, teens, and adults who don’t wash.  I’m often asked my opinion on the Twilight Saga.  Here are some of my thoughts.

Did I read the Twilight books?  No I didn’t.  I don’t do fiction.

Did I like the previous movies?  I can’t really comment on that because I’m not a fifteen year old girl that finds Robert Pattinson’s “Robert Smith” hair style sexy.

Am I excited for the new chapter in the Twilight saga?  No, I’m not. I’m an adult who washes on a daily basis.

Was I excited when the LC told me she saw Robert Pattinson at the Starbucks in our apartment building last year?  No I wasn’t, I didn’t know who Robert Pattinson was.

Was I slightly more excited when the LC told me he was the star of the Twilight movies? No I wasn’t, I had never heard of the Twilight movies.

Do I find Kristen Stewart attractive? Slightly.

Does she look like she has a strange smell about her?  Yeah, she does. She looks like she smells like feet.

Do I even know what Twilight Eclipse is about?  No I don’t because as I previously mentioned I’m an adult and I wash myself on a daily basis.

Will Twilight Eclipse be a big winner on opening day?  No, but by no means will it be the biggest loser at the theater on opening day.

That’s it… that’s all I know about Twilight.
