Last post on the last page, so I quoted as I`m going to check now for some new ones from here lol. Lovely shots!

One strange thing: normally the name Rosedale would inspire... generic suburbia, hideousness, etc. But even without seeing it, if you said, "Rosedale, Toronto", I wouldn't picture that. My mind has switched from Mississauga = Toronto to Kensington = Toronto, so I would've expected what was pictured.

Popped over to the market the next day. The neighbourhood was either digging the snow or digging out of the snow.

The filters are dreary (moody?) but I thought these were interesting:

Montreal always gets the best winters. Why can't we get snow like that?

No thanks. I love almost everything about Montreal, and I do totally respect the more enthusiastic embrace of winter culture that you get in Quebec, but...

No thanks.

I know... somehow it always seems to have way more snow than Ottawa despite being so close.

An interesting non-skyline picture.

We went to a songwriters' circle early this evening, a fundraiser for local foodsharing. It was ~*~spectacular~*~. A half dozen of my favourite local artists/instrumentalists.

They had Phil Churchill from The Once (my fave band) hosting, Juno award winners Amelia Curran (my fave singer) and Duane Andrews (not just my fave, but probably objectively one of the best living guitar players), Mark Bragg (still one of the best concerts I've ever been to), Gordon Quinton (the sweetest. He writes songs that replicate the sounds he hears in nature - but just melodic enough to not be annoying. The crowd literally AWW'D aloud at his heartfelt smile to their big ovation), Kat McLevey (she may have a Juno also, I don't know - but she's going to Berkeley now), Brianna Gosse (I think she'll be the next big thing nationally from here), and Aaron Collis (mostly from the Dardanelles, but he's basically the go-to button accordion guy on the island and has the most beautiful eyes you'll ever see.)

ALL in one intimate room, on stage, for THREE HOURS. Yes ma'am.





(I realized tonight that the economy has been so bad, for so long, that I relate the city to that shopping cart or old car again. lol It'll be the 90s all over again. I'm half expecting a CHEVETTE dealership to open up. That was gone from my feeling about the city for many years, except jokingly.)



From left: Brianna, Gordon, Duane, Mark, Kat, Amelia, Aaron, and Phil.




A few little clips of most, not all, and none of their best from the evening. I was too into it. But CBC recorded it and it will air on Radio 1 and 2 nationally, I believe.

Video Link


Quinton and Duane's duet, a blend of local jigs and reels demonstrating the common root (and even terms) between Baroque and the type of Celtic music that became Newfoundland folk, was especially good. It's apparently going to be part of a movie soundtrack, I think he said. I'm snapping up that CD as soon as its ready. One of Brianna's songs about writer's block and writing about her boring life was cute too.

Yikes, people drinking and throwing axes doesn't seem like a good combination. But it is good that you enjoyed it.

Lake effect snow perhaps? The Maritimes get a ton of snow too. If it's going to be below zero I'd rather have snow than bone dry air and grey streets.

It'd be mind-blowing for a lot of locals too.

That's either the former Allure (George Street, very popular with black NLers) or something to do with MUN, maybe the Breezeway I think their main bar is called? MUN crowds look like anywhere else in North America.
