Adam Carolla on Luck

You may know this week's Uptown cover boy Adam Carolla from his recent stint on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. He is also an accomplished comedian, host of the insanely popular podcast The Adam Carolla Show and involved in The Man Show, The Car Show and Crank Yankers. He'll be performing his stand-up comedy this Friday at the Burton Cummings Theatre in his only Canadian tour stop. In this short video, Carolla discusses the concept of luck. bit.ly/AdamCarolla

MUSIC

Holiday tradition

It wouldn't be the Christmas season in Winnipeg without an appearance by Tom Jackson's Huron Carole. This year's concert, at the Centennial Concert Hall Dec. 3 at 8 p.m., features performances by Jackson, Sarah Slean, Matt Dusk and Susan Aglukark; a portion of the proceeds go to Winnipeg Harvest.

RANDALL KING Ñ MOVIES

Psycho reverb

Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is experiencing something of a revival, first with Hitchcock, a movie about the making of the film starring Anthony Hopkins in the title role (it's scheduled to open at the Globe on Dec. 14). Next, in early 2013, comes a 10-episode TV series for A&E titled Bates Motel starring Freddie Highmore as a contemporary Norman, Vera Farmiga as his mom, Norma, and Max Thieriot as... Norman's older brother?

Clock ticks toward zero for Flashpoint

If you're a fan of CTV's most successful drama of the past decade, you already know the end is near. But if you haven't watched Flashpoint in a while -- or, perhaps, ever -- now might be a good time to drop in and see what the fuss is/was all about. Just three episodes remain -- this week's stand-alone instalment (Nov. 29 at

9 p.m.), and the two-part finale that will end the series (Dec. 6 and 13). CTV has lots of sendoff-related

gimmicks planned, too, and all of them are quite well deserved.

Building Stories

There are coffee-table books and then there are coffee-table worlds. Building Stories, a collection of booklets, pamphlets, charts, books, magazines and leaflets by graphic novelist Chris Ware -- all collected in a handsome box -- is the latter. Documenting the lives of people living in a Chicago building, Ware's meticulous, tiny

drawings and unsentimental storylines are both charming and deeply melancholy, no matter what order

you read them in.
