I met Goldie for the first time last week in Miami, and I had one of those life moments and got a little emotional behind my sunglasses. He pulled me aside and told me that he loved my version of ‘Kemistry’, and I was completely speechless.

Here is the aforementioned track:
I think this just might be the best neighbourhood in the city.
I wanted you to know that I am ready to go. Heartbeat. My heartbeat.
They have a great cafe there too.
This particular merchant prefers vintage glass products largely due to the lead content in the pieces which allows a brighter hue to illuminate the room with its brilliance.
I couldn’t help but think of the plethora of vintage shops (i.e. above) that have sprouted in Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood recently when I read Aldona‘s piece about Rewind Consignment Clothing out in Calgary. It provides a frank look at the struggles facing the creative community here and the aspirations of those who would love to see the city blossom during the year it is Canada’s “Cultural Capital.”
There are “some” stylish and trendy ladies out here, notes owner Krista Duckworth-Hopfauf. She adds, “Our city’s culture isn’t quite there because we seem to be so shopping mall driven…” That is definitely a fair characterization. But she also talked about the potential ripe and ready to go…
Rifle though the antique pieces and one-of-a-kind steals, and you may just learn something.
Amazing ambient formed the evening backdrop to a snowy blur…
The program, Katharsis, actually identifies itself as “a weekly journey to the polar regions of contemporary music.”
Spot on son. Spot on.
I always wonder what happened to the fascinating kids I’ve passed in my travels, as we each head off on our respective adventures. For example, you may remember the tale of the Greyhound Internationals.
Passed this group last year while hitting up a rather glitzy party pumping with youthful energy, a bit of a counterpoint to the hitchhikers bedding down in T-dot for the night after their first day of travel before heading east. Yes that is a cute kitty.
On the one side, a streetside billboard for the hypest boutique condo community, promoted with an image of the CN Tower. On the other, the actual CN Tower glowed in the background. Bumping into a crew of buddies heading off into the unknown is sort of soothing in its own way. You’re reminded that each stage of the journey is struggle. Yet every level carries its own sense of triumph.
And in the case of this crew passing through Calgary, despite wanting to conceal their identity, they were quite excited about posing for a still. After all, they were on a journey with friends as close as family. Who wouldn’t want to pose incognito?
Heading out into the sunny Saturday aura of the city’s affluent shimmer Maceo Plex pumping on the speakers, we tried to decide where exactly to go for brunch. The Husky Oil building looked bronzed as light reflected off it like the sheen of a sturdy oil drum. As we settled on Red’s, before changing our course so we didn’t have to wait in line, I snagged a copy of
the Georgia Straight offshoot, Fast Forward — the city’s equivalent to NOW Magazine.
I rifled through it and was particularly arrested by the P3 interior shot, of a red head with impecable fashion caught ascending a staircase. There she was emerging in a series of stills, only to encounter someone perched just beyond, camera at the ready, finger on the shutter trigger. The composition on the shot was pretty cool, and it was perfect to have something to read as we made our way to the brand spanking new Mission Diner, sort of reminiscent of the Dundas West top spot Saving Grace.
It takes guys like this to keep the business community buzzing… Holding it down year after year.
Nothing like a little jazz and charcuterie to make for an amazing Sunday evening.
