This week the CBC radio One show, Ideas, will be playing 2010 Massey Lectures, by celebrated Canadian author and artist, Douglas Coupland. A cultural commentator with international impact, Coupland presents this year's lectures in the form of a novel, Player One. What is to Become of Us. The novel and lecture together present a story set over five hours in an airport lounge which asks; at what point do humans stop being humans and become something else? Where, if anywhere, do modernity and classical theology overlap? What is time? What is the human essence? And how does storytelling fit into all of this?
will be in our store this Friday at noon.

I woke up this morning to the sound of rain. A hard November rain. Really, there are few sounds quite as comforting, especially when you're snuggled deep into flannel sheets. So long as the rain stays outside, that is. That might seem a given, what with rain being an outside thing, but it's not.
