Well, folks! It’s November again – and that means time for me to do something that my wife hates: grow a giant honkin’ moustache. This is, of course, for Movember. Movember started out being an initiative to raise awareness for prostate cancer. It also served as a way to raise research money. Well, over the last few years, Movember has evolved to include men’s health in general – especially mental health issues. I can’t think of a more appropriate time to shine a spotlight on that affliction, considering recent events.
So please, if you have any spare coins lying underneath your couch cushions, please donate to me and my team: just click here.

People are clueless in general. Everyone is usually so wrapped up in themselves that they never really bother to look and see that other people need help. It’s actually really sad. I wonder how much less negativity we would have in the world if we just took the time to open our eyes and hearts a little more.

Another 24-Hour Movie Marathon has come and gone. This year was just as much fun as last. As usual, our fan films are a lot of fun to make – but they are not without some comical errors. Check out some of our tribute film bloopers!

Welcome to the 9th 24 Hour Movie Marathon! This proud tradition has survived (some may say “persisted”) for some time now, and it is an annual event that I look forward to quite enthusiastically. A little more than a year has passed since the last movie marathon, and it appears that we have another strong lineup this year.

And I Don’t Blame You
I mean, I’m barely ever here!
So, I opened the door to the editing room of this blog and had to blow dust off of the desk before I sat down to write. Keeping Toronto Thumbs running is a bittersweet task. On one hand, I get to write about all kinds of cool stuff; but at the same time, it takes me away from writing articles here (and for other places, as well). 2013 was a fairly eventful year, full of family goodness, friends and all around good times. It was also the busiest year yet for Toronto Thumbs, which resulted in a feeling of fulfillment at the end of 2013.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 50 trips to carry that many people.
