Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Tomorrow night is the Coach House Wayzgoose! See y’all there!
Y’all like funny shit right? Well, my friend/comedy mentor of sorts, the very lovely and talented Dawn Whitwell, hosts a comedy night at Comedy Bar every Monday called Dawn Patrol. It’s only $7, and the line-up is always stacked. You’re welcome.
I encourage you to watch this absolutely delightful short film created by former Dragnet contributor Jeremy Woodcock. I think you will find it charming even if you don’t take the TTC every goddamn day.
Be careful out there today kids! Don’t forget your sunscreen!! Better yet, stay the hell indoors!!!
For the last post before a long weekend, which here in Toronto is a big ole Canada Day/Pride celebration, I’ll leave you with this video, the first single off of Hot Chip’s new record (which is awesome, by the way). Whatever you do this weekend, don’t forget to dance! It’s a celebration bitches!!!
The Book Mark, one of Toronto’s oldest bookstores, is closing at the end of this month, citing big chain stores and online book sales as the main reasons for their financial downturn over the past couple of years. Truly a loss for this city. (via CBC)
“They were the most outrageous, most envied, most startlingly fun birthday parties a generation of kids ever attended.” Read my article about The Mad Hatter here.
Definitely the coolest thing at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche this year: Russian art group AES+F’s “The Feast of Trimalchio.” A modern retelling of part of the Satyricon, shot as 70,000 still frames. Imagine this, but with 9 separate screens arranged in a ring around you (instead of a youtube clip divided into 9 channels). Wish I could’ve just stayed there all night.
