Throwback Thursday: Corner Gas Season One

Topics:   Java Blog

For today's "Throwback Thursday" post, we thought we'd share with you this poster that proudly hangs (or is it "hangs proudly"...well, it definitely hangs, we're certain about that) in the hallway at the Java Post Production office. It's from the first season of the Corner Gas television series, back in 2004. For fans of the show, you'll remember the first…

We Got That B-Roll!

Topics:   Java Blog

This was too hilarious not to share. As anyone who has ever worked in the television news, documentary or commercial business can tell you, "B-Roll" is the term for video footage that typically appears over a narrator's voice. It's not a spokesperson or interview subject speaking on camera. That's called A-Roll. B-Roll is all the other stuff. For example, when a reporter is…

Umbrella Drinks: The Healthy Choice.

Topics:   Java Blog

It's nice to see that our boss, "Java Jack" Tunnicliffe, is maintaining a healthy lifestyle while he's on vacation. That tall, cool, refreshing umbrella drink must contain lots of good, wholesome things. Why, there's a slice of fresh pineapple right there on the rim of the glass. That drink is practically a salad already! And we're sure there are healthy juices in there,…

Thursday, February 26th, 2015. Somewhere near Bethune, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Our Boss is Making a Racquet.

Topics:   Java Blog

Anyone who knows our boss, "Java Jack" Tunnicliffe, knows that he's an athletic supporter. Wait. That line didn't come out right. What we mean to say is that Jack enjoys keeping fit, particularly with a good game of squash. He's never happier than when he has a squash racquet in his hand. And don't let his knee-brace fool you. Jack has been known to wipe the court with…

There is No Motion in Motion Pictures.

Topics:   Java Blog

It's true. There is no actual motion in "motion pictures." But wait! Before you stomp off to the nearest multiplex to yell at the teenage concession worker that you've been ripped off all these years, watch this video first. Unless you're yelling about being ripped off over the price of popcorn, in which case, rage away. You see, what our brains perceive as moving images are…

Who's the new guy? He looks a little young.

Topics:   Java Blog

Due to the kind of scheduling challenge that all parents face from time to time, the Java Post staff temporarily increased yesterday as Randy Shumay's son Cohen joined us for the afternoon. To paraphrase what Randy said on his Facebook page: "Unexpected take-your-kid-to-work day. Productivity is through the roof." Cohen (he's the good-looking one on the left) and Randy buckle…
