Chester Station second exit

I am so happy I’m not an elected official. I went to the TTC’s meeting about the second exit for Chester Station. My councillor attended and she tweeted this just a moment ago. Since I don’t seek public office I can tell you the truth. What Councillor Fragedakis tweeted can be summed up as such… LIES! That was not a “good discussion.” The angry man who interrupted the session to proclaim that the TTC would have to buy his house if they wanted to put elevators at the main exit of Chester Station was not a good discussion. The man who decided to deride the TTC staff for calling the… Read More »Chester Station second exit

iPhone Ringtones

Time for a non-Rocktober post. I’ve made some ringtones for my iPhone, and I thought I’d share. Yes I’m infringing on some copyright with these, but I hope the BBC, Nintendo, Stephin Merritt, Apple, and the TTC will forgive me.

Toronto got itself a subway, really!

My dear, and sexy friend Nicholas, posted this video to twitter. There’s a few things that strike me about this video… other than the terrible audio, because really, the sound’s horrible. Three tokens for a quarter?!?! WTF?!?! Now it’s one token for twelve quarters! Toronto in the ’50s seems quaint. I’m pretty sure it’s just the music, but Toronto in the ’50s does seem like some cheesy movie. Anyone have a time machine? I wanna see what it was really like? Go down to Queen Street and see what was hopping in the pubs and bars that lined Queen West. I’m sure Buddy Holly was shredding on the stage of… Read More »Toronto got itself a subway, really!

Fuck you Miller, relying on outside sources to fund one of the most important infrastructures in Toronto. Fuck you McGuinty, you know the entire province relies on the city of Toronto. Fuck you Harper, just cuz. CBC wants to know how French are you… in other news, la SRC ne se soucie pas comment l’anglais que vous soyez. Smitherman wants to take the Chertien/Martin approach to governance… he might win my vote. Surgery in Windsor, not a good idea. Is there anything that’s a good idea in Windsor? Who cares? No one uses Bing or Yahoo! As often as I’ve had brunch at Sneaky Dee’s, I’ve never had their Huevos… Read More »Linky Link

I want this for my birthday. How to attract women. Google wants to bring 1 gigabit per second internet to you. Adam Giambrone throws in the towel.I’m iffy on this. I wouldn’t have voted for the man, because of the state of the TTC, but to have to drop out of the race because of his personal life isn’t right. Did you know they still do a MacWorld Expo? Why? Seriously, why? Google Street View… let’s visit the Yukon River in Whitehorse. Valentines day mixtape courtesy of Monitor Mix. Dear Carrie Brownstein, will you be my valentine? Fake Simpsons words that belong in the dictionary. (Courtesy of swhibbsy) via The… Read More »Linky Link
