Liongate Live + Free Concerts

Mongrel Media will be streaming some of their most popular films on the Liongate Movies Youtube channel, for four consecutive Friday nights, starting tonight at 9 pm eastern with The Hunger Games.

These events will be hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis and will feature special guest celebrities and YouTube personalities, who will interact with fans in real-time via Youtube chat and live-tweeting (with @Lionsgate and their partners).

There will also be in-show shared fan engagement opportunities, including movie trivia, movie-themed challenges, and more.

The next films to be featured are Dirty Dancing (on April 24th), LaLaLand (on May 1st) and John Wick (on May 8th).

In regards to free concerts, Pink Floyd is now streaming their restored and re-edited 90 minute Pulse concert on their official Youtube channel. And Radiohead‘s “Dublin – Live From A Tent” is also available on their official Youtube channel.

Superbowl Discounts

It looks like Amazon Canada is discounting quite a few televisions and soundbars for Superbowl 2020, which will air on the second of February.

Not an American football fan but I’m going to keep an eye out for some deals, including at bestbuy.ca and Newegg Canada.

It’s Boxing Day Time

Boxing Day deals have already begun at Canadian retailers like 123ink.ca, Amazon Canada, Best Buy Canada, Canada Computers, chapters.indigo.ca, Living.ca, Microsoft Canadaicon, Newegg Canadaicon, Prime Cables Canada, Sonos Canada, Staples Canada and thesource.ca. But you’ll need to wait until Boxing Day itself for deep discounts at Amazon U.k and Sheet Music Plus if you were planning on importing music, sheet music, DVDs and Blu-rays from “across the pond”, although you could still browse those shops to see if they have discounts on certain products today.

Year-end deals can also be found in the United States at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, the later primarily in their CD & Vinyl and Movies & TV departments. And if you’re looking for collectibles, like figurines and other memorabilia, Entertainment Earth is having an After Christmas Sale.

Happy shopping.

It’s Black Friday

The day has come and I thought I’d discuss my go-to places for certain goods in this entry, beyond the miscellaneous, general goods sites like Amazon.ca, Bestbuy.ca and Newegg Canadaicon.

There’s always an opportunity to do some comparison shopping when it comes to certain goods today and through the weekend into Cyber Monday, so I tend to visit multiple stores to find the best deals, including some American and European retailers, although you need to account for the exchange rates and possible shipping and customs fees for the later if it’s valued at over $20 Canadian.

I’ve personally saved on Vinyl Records, Blu-rays, DVDs, compact discs, sheet music and books ordered from American retailers Amazon.com, Alibrisicon, ArkivMusic, Barnes & Noble and Sheet Music Plus and European retailers Amazon U.k, Amazon France and Alibris U.k.icon so you might want to shop around; Sheet Music Plus is currently offering 15% off orders over US$50 and 20% off orders over $100 whilst Barnes & Noble is offering 10% Off Your Online Order until December 1st with the BLKFRI coupon code.

If you’re looking for musical instruments and accessories you might want to browse the Long & Mcquade site or pop on by one of their local Canadian stores. And you can also do some comparison shopping on American sites like GuitarCenter.com, Musician’s Friend and Woodwind and Brasswind, who also ship to Canada.

All three of these American retailers are offering discounts; Guitar Center is offering a 15% discount on orders over US$199 today using code FRIDAY15 and on Cyber Monday using discount code CYBER15. Musician’s Friend is offering 10% off orders US$49+ and 15% off orders US$99+ with coupon code BLACKFRI19 until November 20th. And Woodwind and Brasswind is offering a 20% discount on purchases over US$99 with coupon code BF2019.

If you’re looking for miscellaneous cables, television mounts, adapters and audio accessories, you might want to browse primecables.ca for both deals on these products and a 20% discount using coupon code BF2019, which will be valid until 11:59 pm tonight (11/29) on this site and the other Shoppers+ sites (123ink.ca and living.ca). And Sonos Canada is currently discounting their home theatre speakers by 20% so you might want to check them out.

In regards to memorabilia, you could drop by at your local Indigo store for some in-store discounts on Lego, DC and Marvel merchandise and possibly visit them online for discounts on some toys. But U.S based EntertainmentEarth.com is having major discounts this weekend and Diecast Model Warehouse is offering a 10% discount on their models with coupon code CYBERMONDAY. And deals can also be had at Toys-R-Us Canada (from 15% to 60% off) and samkoandmikotoywarehouse.com (25% with coupon code: thebigsave25).

You might also consider visiting your local record stores, some of which will also open early today to offer rare, exclusive and discounted compacts discs, vinyl records, DVDs, Blu-rays and music memorabilia in celebration of the Black Friday edition of Record Store Day.

Details on what is being made available and what stores are participating can be found on the official Record Store Day Canada web site, by clicking here.

Hope this information helps you find some good deals today. And if I think of anything else today, I’ll update this entry.

Enjoy.
