Hopefully they will fierce it early and turn the CN Tower officially gay for Pride.

Yes, that was the Toronto CN Tower glowing in the dark Monday night. Officials were testing a $2.5-million intelligent LED lighting system that will run 533 metres up the elevator shaft to light up the sky, starting June 28. Globe photographer Philip Cheung was there to capture the spectacle.

I highly suspect Toronto Pride will have fewer American Gay Sex Tourists this year because of our strong dollar. Presently an $8.50CAD Day Pass on the TTC works out to about $8. A Venti Mocha Whatever is about $4.60USD. A bottle of reliable Lakeport beer will set you back $3.75USD at non-lame bars.

If you use your debit card at point-of-sale you will probably get a 1-4% convenience charge plus your bank's foreign exchange rate. Which would probably make prices on par with US dollars. That could be almost convenient.

That's unfortunate, I love partying with America! If you are heading up sound off in the comments. But that's assuming you come because we're like Tijuana Lite. We all know you are coming anyhow because you love us.

If my grind were coffee it'd be an extra fine one used for stove-top percolators. This grind would result in an elite cup of Turkish coffee that one should most definitely observe with a nice spinach and cheese Baraka. Preferably during that break between lunch and dinner that we don't have in most of our North American workplaces.

That's a fancy way of saying I'm not doing much out of the ordinary.

Toronto Pride is coming up fast and fierce. Which I will be attending for the first time with a lady in waiting, my one and only Huw ([livejournal.com profile] wwabbit). I expect many good times with much of the drinking and the baking in the hot summer sun. I should research the best sun screen now... zinc is good on the nose right? I'll make it fashionable.

Who's doing Toronto Pride anyhow? Speak up! Also if you are from America and within driving or frequent flier mile range you should most definitely come for the weekend. I will buy you a drink, I promise.

LAZERFIST is on hiatus for the summer as the talented [livejournal.com profile] jenneferre is off to Costa Rica for some delectably long period of time. We still haven't bothered to finish a record however the summer is long and there will be several opportunities to record with new people. I'm thinking about resurrecting my laptop band but I wanna use new software. Maybe entirely Max/MSP or Live? Despite that I'm still very much trying to keep it simple. Just a few months of dorking around until the band gets back together after vacations and whatnot.
