I like this simple, cute video that’s fun to watch. Thanks to Jeff for sending it to me this morning.

Waking up to good songs

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I woke up to this song today on the CBC. It was really wonderful. I love when I hear an amazing song for the first time when I’m still half-sleeping. The recording was from a live performance at Glen Gould Studios, which will be repeated this Saturday. I wish I could go, but I have a wedding reception. Anyway, this song, Royal Wood “The Island,” made my day today.

Lost is so stupid and I like boys

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

I gotta watch it now though cause I succumb easily to peer pressure of those who watch with me. So dumb. They don’t even like it, they just watch cause they have to after investing a million hours into it I bet.

Check out this awesome spam from “Hemroids Home Remedy”: Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner.

Spam comments are so awesome in a way I can’t even describe! I don’t know why or how but they are so super sweet! I wonder if anyone else appreciates them like I do…

Sooo… I’ve been thinking lately about boys. I have two brothers, an awesome dad, and all-boy cousins, so I’ve always gotten along better with males. My mom is awesome too, but growing up I had way more in common with my dad. I hung out pretty much exclusively with boys in grade school. They just seemed way cooler to me than the alternative. As we entered puberty and things got “complicated,” I learned many times over that girls and boys can’t be friends. No matter how hard we tried, things got awkward and/or romantic and it just wasn’t as fun anymore. Also, I felt weird and like I was missing out on great girly friendships; and I was right. In my late-teens I started, at first consciously then later it came natural, to cultivate more friendships with girls. Feminism is correct and we have to support each other and be awesome together. Over the years I’ve made amazing girlfriends and kinda let my boyfriendships fall away a bit. Lately however, I notice the boys in my life are coming back with a vengenance. Awesome! Boys in general seem like simpler, lower mantainence friends and that is more my style for whatever reason. Don’t get me wrong, I love my girlfriends so much and get along with them better than anyone. It’s more of a balance of influences of both I’m finding I think I need. As I get older and everyone gets more mature and chilled out, I find I can hang out with boys again without it being weird. That’s nice eh? It’s called being an adult probably.

I know the video quality isn’t that good, but I just love this song and wanted to post it. On the recorded version he’s accompanied by piano, in this one it’s guitar.

Music videos shot at The Boat in Kensington

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

It seems like I am often watching music videos by Toronto people and I think, “Another video shot at The Boat!” It seems like a favourite place and it does look pretty cool inside… But when push comes to shove, I can only think of three… I’m sure there are more. Can you think of any?

Toronto cyclists go out of their way to show love to good drivers

Monday, October 19th, 2009

This is an awesome campaign idea to address the weird but totally present animosity between cyclists and drivers. I like the idea of cyclists putting in the effort, because we’re nice people. It strikes me as a little bit suck-uppy for things we should expect drivers to do anyway, but you know what? We can drop our pride for the good of everyone and raise awareness in a way that doesn’t make people defensive. PR-wise it’s pretty frickin brilliant, you think?

Read the Now article on the campaign…

How ’bout this autumn?
