The Toronto Star has recently published a three-part story (1
) on the life and death of toddler Stella Joy, who was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma
) at age 2. As this disease is considered 100% fatal, Stella's mothers (link to blog)
chose not to have Stella undergo radiation treatment in order to preserve as much quality of life as possible. The love of Stella's family and community as they support her and each other through her death is truly inspiring. [more inside]

Which came first, the Stella Artois or the Ostrich? Does this makes sense after
I drink a few Stellas?

Have you heard of Stella?
This comedy trio has been doing nightclub shows in NYC and across the country since 1997, and they were involved with MTV's the State before that. Perhaps you've seen one of the members somewhere else: Michael Showalter as Lionel Prichard in Signs, Michael Ian Black as the host of Spy TV or as Phil Stubbs on Ed, or David Wain as the director of Wet Hot American Summer
(Black and Showalter are in the movie). Together they have put together several video shorts available here
. I highly recommend Bored, Whiffleball, and David's Cousin. College Reunion, Christmas Caroling, and Turkey Hunting are also hilarious, if you share their off the wall, perverse sense of humor. None of them are safe for work. Enjoy!
