The plan this week was to talk about Prometheus (in light of Ridley Scott wrecking the Alien franchise with it) and the likely fate of Connaught school (in light of a report that makes it sound like the building is beyond repair and needs a good wrecking).
That was it. It was going to be a short, easy to consume episode.
But things went a little off the rails.
For a fuller list of topics, here are my show notes:
– Prometheus and why it sucks
– blah blah blah, eldritch horrors
– Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer, why?
– Can Con suggestions for the “historical figures fighting monsters” subgenre
– Bruno Gerussi
– the Amazing Spiderman
– Moonrise Kingdom not coming to Regina, WTF?
– Chipwrecked is gone, finally, Shane is happy
– Rainbow cinemas going digital!
– Dark Knight Rises Imax event in Regina
– we blame everything on Jorge
– Watchmen vs Before Watchmen, fight!
– and now we talk about a school board meeting and you get topic whiplash
– Glen Elm school vs Haultain — winner gets students, loser gets the wrecking ball
– Imperial school vs McDermid — same deal
– Connaught School, will it get torn down? (Yeah, very likely)
– the 21st Century classroom
– repurposing Mosaic Stadium as the ultimate open-concept school
And that was it. More or less.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
