Hip hop you don't stop

Bonded over their love of men's rec ice hockey and hip hop, Dauphin natives Carter Hanke and Aaron Karlson joined forces to form Chivas & Kream, a party-rocking hip-hop duo that will drop its debut album, Secret Ingredientz, Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Windsor Hotel. Released via local imprint Deafwish, the 14-track record nods to '90s rap and is best played loud. The CD release party, which features Union Stockyards, Bearfight and Employee of the Month, starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10.

No, Polly doesn't want a cracker; Polly wants some understanding

The myths, misconceptions and mistakes associated with keeping exotic birds as pets are explored in the new PBS/Nature documentary Parrot Confidential, which airs Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. on Prairie Public TV. Among the enlightening bits of information: parrots, which are extremely social creatures that form strong bonds with companions and caregivers, often live to be 80 or 90 years old, long outlasting their owners and, as a consequence, suffering severe emotional trauma.

Casting for Calamity

Given a spectacular fall from grace, it's only a matter of time before someone makes a movie about Toronto's mayor Rob Ford. Unfortunately, the two actors best qualified to play him -- Chris Farley and John Belushi -- both died prematurely from indulgences that should prove sobering to the Hogtown honcho. Looks like any ambitious moviemakers are going to have to go with CG animation. It certainly wouldn't make the movie any more unbelievable than Ford's story is proving to be.

MORLEY WALKER / BOOKS

More proof that he's just a regular guy

Even a Senate scandal could not hold up the release of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's first foray into serious hockey scholarship, A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs and the Rise of Professional Hockey. The tome, from Simon & Schuster Canada, hits shelves this week, and rumour has it that Nigel Wright will write a large cheque to cover the cost of Harper's Ottawa book launch.
