Spacing Magazine is about Toronto’s urban landscape and features local amateur photographers. A photo taken with my camera, but not by me (at least that’s how it was remembered), appeared in the last issue. Torontonians have gone absolutely photoblogg’in: toronto.photobloggers.org
You are the DJ – I’m trying out a plug-in called Audioscrobbler that charts my recent songs in iTunes and plays like music from the button above. I’m hearing some good new music with it too.
Local 514, 416 Tunes – It’s a great time for Canadian music. Some bands include: Stars, Apostle of Hustle, The Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Feist, Jason Collett, Metric, The Dears… And even better than being well liked here and abroad… many of the above seem to be friends and often play in each others sets on stage.
A big city can still live in a small world. After settling into my hotel, I call up a friend from Montreal working in town and later discover, while walking with his address in hand, that he and his coworkers are in a condo that happens to be right next door. The next building! I knew they were near the Lincoln Center like me but that’s it. What are the odds in Manhattan? There I met a friend of my co-worker Dario (who sits beside me), a woman that knows my sisters, and an Image Arts alum. Later, I run into an awesome couple on the street that I met recently in Toronto. And that was the first few hours. There was 6 degrees going on all weekend. I love New York. A nice return.
