this is my morning view on the way to work.
looks nice right? but as a friend of mine often mourns, the south-east corner of yonge and bloor (harvey's, city optical) is actually a really ugly sight in an otherwise attractive neighbourhood.
fortunately for everyone with eyes, that sucka's getting blown to bits.
this is the building that's going to be built in it's place. it's kind of a cheesy rendering, but i think the real thing will be a huge improvement.
last night i went to see casey from ohbijou play a solo show at the boat. turns out the solo show was really a group of singer/songwriters playing in turn to a far-too quiet crowd. casey's great, but we weren't in the mood to just sit still and listen, so we went to some random bar on dundas.
if you're looking for a good show and something to do this weekend, check out the track and field music fest in tantramar, which is just outside guelph. lots of rad acts like great lake swimmers, sebastien grainger, and final fantasy for a $20 donation.
