18:45 Older Than Ireland at Friday, May 6, 2016 at 6:45 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance
Runs: 81 minutes
Director: Alex Fegan
Country: Ireland
Language: In English with English subtitles
Awards: Winner Best Irish Feature Documentary, Galway Film Fleadh;Winner Best Documentary, Irish Times Ticket Awards

“Both wry treat and testament to the efficacy of modern medicine, Alex Fegan’s documentary rounds up 30 Irish centenarians, and invites them to hold forth on subjects from the civil war to Twitter. While sketching a turbulent national past, Fegan’s history leans towards the social, watching hardy sorts – caught at prayer, at bingo and in the hairdresser’s chair – offer entertainingly gossipy titbits on courtship, beauty and other everyday pursuits. You’ll shed a tear or two, possibly more.” - Mike McCahill, The Guardian (UK). “Utterly charming. Fegan lets their personalities shine through, from the woman who insists she never gets excited in between rattling off her life’s truly astonishing moments to Kathleen Snavley, Ireland’s oldest-ever person and an absolute spitfire... We can only hope everyone who makes it to her age is as saucy... Older Than Ireland is suffused with these kinds of moments, some beautiful, many sad, plenty sassy, all tremendously human. Towards the end, one of the few surviving men confesses that, even with 100 years on the earth, he doesn’t know any more about why we’re here; listening to each other, the documentary more than proves, is as good a reason as any.” - The National Post. “The film swells with indecent amounts of poignancy, wisdom and irreverent humour” - The Irish Times.

00:57 [MUSIC] Prince, "1999" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
There has been an astonishing flourishing of Prince's songs and music videos on YouTube in the aftermath of his death. This may or may not last, but while it does why not celebrate songs like his "1999"?



I was dreamin' when I wrote this, forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin', could've sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple, there were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' to run from the destruction, you know I didn't even care

Say say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's nineteen ninety-nine

I was dreamin' when I wrote this, so sue me if I go too fast
But life is just a party and parties weren't meant to last
War is all around us, my mind says prepare to fight
So if I gotta die I'm gonna listen to my body tonight


He got it.

20:41 [MUSIC] "Beyond the 6: Drake’s global vision" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
At MacLean's, Renato Pagnini reviews Drake's new album Views. I like how Pagnini explains Drake as partly the product of Toronto and its various scenes, rooted in a multicultural reality perhaps not yet fully recognized by all.

Each project since Drake’s 2010 major label debut Thank Me Later has felt progressively more indebted to Toronto. The city and how it shaped him became more of a focal point in his lyrics (“My heart is cold, it’s probably ’cause I’m from the snow” he raps on 2015’s “6 Man”). Drawing from a number of hip-hop hotbeds, especially the sweltering haze of Houston rap, Drake’s sound grew into what is now known as the “Toronto sound,” an aqueous and reflective form that prioritizes wide-open spaces and sombre moods, the perfect backdrop for the Millennial angst that Drake has made his name peddling.

“Drake has been aggressive with his civic boosterism throughout his career,” says Jamieson Cox, a writer for The Verge and Pitchfork who has kept an eye on Drake since he first started making music after leaving his role as Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation. “He’s really worked it into the fabric of his music in a lyrical sense, and now increasingly in a sonic sense too.”

Views feels like the culmination of his life-long love affair with Toronto, as well as his first serious bid for global domination. Drake’s always had one foot in pop music—his songs that have charted highest, “Best I Ever Had” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” are among his catchiest—but now there’s an increased focus on expanding the parameters of his sound, which was beginning to feel stifling. Moving away from the dark, muted sounds he’s been most comfortable with up until now, Views presents some of the brightest music of Drake’s career, working with livelier tempos and more colourful production.

The album sales tell the story: In just one day, Views sold more copies than Beyoncé’s recent album Lemonade, released less than a week before, did in its entire first week. Views is on target to smash Drake’s previous first-week sales, and insiders have speculated it might even move one million units in its first week, an occurrence seen with dwindling frequency these days as music sales continue to shrink, and subscription numbers of streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music continue to increase.


Plus, Views' album cover by Caitlin Cronenberg is spectacular.

20:33 [URBAN NOTE] "Toronto to celebrate first Pride Month with slew of events as Pride Parade marks 35" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
CP24's Joshua Freeman wrote about some of the events scheduled for Toronto's Pride Month this coming June.

Pride Month will feature 60 signature events, some of which will commemorate and explore the raids.

The events will include a June 7 human rights panel at the 519 Community Centre remembering the raids. The panel will be headlined by author Margaret Atwood.

A launch party at the Art Gallery of Ontario with avant-garde queer performances guest curated by Bruce LaBruce will kick things off on June 2.

A fair helping of star power is also expected throughout the month, with events featuring actors George Takei of “Star Trek,” singer/actor Joe Jonas, singer Lila Downs and “Queer As Folk” actor Randy Harrison.

Pride Month will lead up to the 10-day Pride Festival which begins June 24. The events will culminate with the Pride Parade, which will take place on July 3.

18:45 [URBAN NOTE] "Syrian refugees find comfort at Toronto's Depanneur" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
NOW Toronto</u>'s Mary Luz Mejia writes about how one west-end Toronto restaurant opened up its kitchen to Syrian refugees.

Sanaa Alhamad beams at the bounty before her. Parsley, mint, lemons, garlic, tahini paste in tall jars – this is the food she knows and loves. The mother of four from Aleppo arrived in Canada in January with the United Nations’ help.

She busies herself finely chopping the parsley for a huge batch of fresh citrusy tabouleh, the salad accompaniing the baharat-spice-infused kibbeh, or ground beef fritters, and hummus being prepared.

“Cooking here today, it makes me happy. It makes me feel useful,” she says, smiling.

Alhamad is one of 10 women attending the latest session of Len Senater’s Newcomer Kitchen program. For many here today it’s the first time they’ve been on a subway, an escalator or inside a Canadian grocery store. The women, who shopped for ingredients to prepare a luncheon feast at Senater’s west-end food haunt, the Depanneur, are all newly landed Syrian refugees.

Most of them have been living in hotels for at least a month, an arrangement that got Senater thinking. “One of the worst things about long-term hotel stays is you don’t usually get to eat properly because there’s nowhere to cook. I wondered, what are they eating? Are they going to the gas station and buying Doritos?”

The Depanneur’s working kitchen isn’t used during the day. “Let them come and cook!” became Senater’s goal.
18:43 [URBAN NOTE] "A love letter to Toronto's alleyways and lanes" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
blogTO's Derek Flack has another great photo essay, this one dedicated to the laneways of Toronto.

The Toronto laneway is the vein to the artery that is the city's streets. There are over 250 kilometres of laneways and alleys spread across the city, though you wouldn't know it without looking at a map. You could pass by the entrance to a laneway for months without taking notice of it, relegated as they are to background status.

Yet, it's precisely the degree to which our laneways are overlooked spaces that makes them so intriguing. This is messy urbanism at its finest. I'm not just talking about graffiti, but the strange process that takes place when people share urban space that's outside of everyday view.

If the front yard is all about putting on a face, the laneway is about utility. From irregular garages, fences, and trellises to coach houses, car ports, and basketball nets, you can learn more about a person's life by strolling through these spaces than past the manicured lawns that face the street.


Go to the site, please. There are plenty of beautiful photos, to say nothing of the words.
18:41 [URBAN NOTE] "Toronto Zoo Considers New Train Technology to Replace the Old Monorail" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Torontoist's Anda Zeng reports on an interesting proposal for the Toronto Zoo. Why not a cool maglev in place of the monorail?

Robin Hale, the Toronto Zoo’s chief operating officer, remembers riding the Domain Ride and is often asked whether the Zoo plans to bring it back. Better known as the monorail, the distinctive ride opened with the Zoo in 1976 and travelled along a 5-kilometre concrete guideway in a loop around the grounds. But after a couple of severe accidents in the early 90s and financial inability to ensure its safety, the Zoo closed the ride. Now, more than 20 years later, the Zoo is considering bringing back the monorail, complete with some significant, notably futuristic, upgrades.

In 2014, Edmonton-based company Magnovate began courting the Toronto Zoo with the proposition to retrofit the old guideway, equipping it with a magnetic levitation (maglev) train. The new technology would feature sleek, driverless single vehicles hovering above an electromagnetic track. Two years after approaching the Zoo, Magnovate submitted a full proposal in March.

The plan outlines how the company would rebuild a section of the original guideway loop, construct maglev rails, and get 12 vehicles up and running and powered by solar panels on the stations and infrastructure. The estimated price tag: $25 million for Magnovate, at no cost to the Zoo or the city.

Magnovate pitched the idea on April 7 to the Zoo’s Board of Management, which approved it for the next stage: an open call for proposals. The procedure invites other companies to make a better offer than the unsolicited bid, which Magnovate could match or exceed—a procurement process known as a Swiss Bid.

13:20 IndieWeb in the Sunshine »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

At the end of an afternoon of wandering around Malmö discussing, among other things, the IndieWeb and its various glories, it seemed vital to place a marker here for the occasion.

I began the day with neither coffee nor food in the house; fortunately I am staying in the same neighbourhood as I did during my 2013 visit, and I recalled that the excellent № 6 café was nearby. There was some doubt, what with Swedes gathered in solemn recognition of the Ascension1, that it might be closed. But it was not. And so by mid-morning I was enjoying a hearty cortado and croissant and feeling that, suddenly, all was right with the world.

Once sated, I joined Olle and Luisa on a walk about town (it’s 17ºC and sunny here today), followed by a stop for lunch near the train station. Luisa decamped for home midafternoon and we were joined by special guest star Jonas at Te & Kaffehuset where more excellent coffee was had. We then walked about in the late afternoon sunshine through Slottsparken where the aforementioned IndieWeb was central to our discussion.

As I type it is after a brief respite of potato salad and roll before I rejoin my party for an early evening cocktail.

1. This is not, technically speak, true. It is Ascension Day, and it is a holiday, but apparently there is little solemnity left.
