Budapest ~ George Ezra

 

My house in Budapest
My, my hidden treasure chest
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

You
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d leave it all

My acres of a land
That I’ve achieved
It may be hard for you to
Stop and believe

But for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d leave it all

Oh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d leave it all

And give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My many artifacts
The list goes on
If you just say the words
I’ll, I’ll up and run

Oh, to you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d leave it all

Oh, for you
Ooh, oh
Ooh, I’d leave it all

And give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My friends and family
They don’t understand
They fear they’ll lose so much
If you take my hand

But, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d lose it all

Oh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d lose it all

And give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My house in Budapest
My, my hidden treasure chest
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

You
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d leave it all

Oh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I’d leave it all

The Butcher is Back Baby!

Marlon’s Meat is back as Camden Market!

I just got a comment on an old post warning me that the Butchers is back as Camden Market at 2500 Yonge Street.

Camden

For those of you who are not familiar with the butchers incident it was quite the saga and a lot of pissed off people.

The Butchers scams Toronto

The Current Episode of the Butchers

The Butchers Update

Another Butchers Update

No conspiracy, it was a scam plain and simple.  Do the math.  $400 worth of meat for $100.  Get 20,000 people to buy in and you walk away with cool $2 Million.  20,000 might seem like a lot of people but in Toronto, that is 1% of the population. 1% of urban Toronto, less if you include the suburbs. Now I can’t say whether or not he got the money or the coupon sites, but either way people got screwed over big time.

Interesting though, the website listed on the awning www.camdenmarket.ca  goes nowhere.

Pan Am Games a disaster for Toronto

The Pan Am Games will be a disaster for Toronto.

God, where to begin with this clusterfuck.

  1. Union station a complete wreck with a week to go. I walk through it on a regular basis and there is still lot of work to be done; there is still sections cordoned off. I was asked this morning by a tourist family how to enter the subway system. It was only 20 yards away!  I was walking on the path between Bay Street and the side entrance when they stopped me.  I explained how they would need to go to the front and down the stairs. Since the entrance closest to them required a pass or a token.  I looked around and there was not a single way-finding tool to show people where to go. Not a good sign (pun intended).
  2. PachiTO2015Mascot-2Pachi the porcupine.  Did you know this is the mascot for the 2015 Pan Am games in Toronto?  I just found out today, a week before the start of the games.What the does a porcupine have to do with Toronto?  A racoon would have been better mascot (and more common to the city).And what is with the whole rainbow motif? We get it, Toronto’s really gay.  At least it is better than the ugly blob they initially went with.
  3. Traffic is a clusterfuck of the first order.  They have changed the HOV lanes to 3 or more people.  It was barely used when it was 2 or more people. I know because some morning’s I would drive in with Zuimei and we could zip downtown in no time.  Now you have two lanes of bumper to bumper and an entire lane sitting empty. Look at this photo from The Canadian press by Frank Gunn. That was the entire commute today for most people coming to work and trying to get home again!Frank Gunn/The Canadian PressAt work we had to fill in questionnaires about how we were going to help relieve traffic by  a) taking public transit b) working from home c) taking vacation time d) carpooling.   The overwhelming message to locals has been “Get out of Toronto!”
  4. Most of the hotels are reporting numbers lower than last year.  Admittedly the weather has been cool, but surely part of it is the lack of decent advertising and the mixed messaging to locals.  If my family said they were thinking of coming I would be like, “Why? We’re told to stay away.”  If you can’t convince the locals to get interested, how on earth are you going to convince a tourist?
  5. Speaking of messages to locals, where is the advertising?  I have not seen a single banner ad online, on any of the major local sites. No billboards, not much in the way of a push on the TTC.  I think I saw a wrapped streetcar, but just one mind you.  Bloor station is still wrapped in Madjack or some cider adverts.You would think someone would have coordinated an effort to welcome people into the city and ensure the busiest and most trafficked parts of transit had appropriate messaging. Like, “Hey, the games are on and here is how easy it is to go see them!  Looking for the Aquatic center?  Take the number two line to the end and take the Ellesmere bus” Or whatever. I’m sure some marketer could do something witty with it.
  6. Speaking of signs, seen the cryptic venue signs?  NPS.  No, not Net Promoter Score, Nathan Phillips Square. (I only know that because I asked someone)  PAF?  No idea.  Know what events are there?  No clue.  No one thought to have a little iconograph indicating what events are at each or perhaps the actual name under the acronym?  Here is an example of what is current around the city:
  7. Now the real kick in the crotch. This trainwreck apparently cost taxpayers $2.5 billion dollars. Now granted, we have some great buildings coming out of that.  A stadium in Hamilton, a velodrome in Milton, an aquatic center in Scarborough. But those are not worth $2,500,000,000.Anytime I see some government project like this I always think, who’s getting rich off of this? Cause it ain’t Toronto.

Top Movies continued 2

We were here

We Were HereDirected by David Weissman, this is the only documentary on my list.  We Were Here chronicles the emergence of HIV and AIDS in San Francisco in the 80s.  What makes this documentary so powerful to me is the way it shows the response within the gay community. It is told through archives and interviews with the men and women who survived.

As someone who grew up during the AIDS crisis, it had a huge influence on my own sexuality. Sex became a potential death sentence.  If I was ten or fifteen years younger I could have very easily been caught up in this.  The AIDS crisis shaped my views in a very powerful way.

“If you put a group of young men together and told them to have as much sex as they can, how much sex would they have?  The answer is a lot of sex.”

There are some powerful moments recounted by the men who lived through it; from the initial postings by the local pharmacies warning of a “gay cancer” to the responses by food banks lead by lesbians.

It marks a moment in gay history as powerful and as important as the death of Harvey Milk and the Stonewall riots.

 

Hero

Hero_posterThis was one of the first Chinese movies I had ever watched that belonged to the new Wuxia era of Chinese filmmaking.  Since then there have been many others to great acclaim such as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, or House of the Flying Daggers.  However in my opinion Hero is still the best of this genre. I am sure someone has dubbed it in English but I prefer to watch it subtitled.

The cinematography in Hero is really second to none. Similar to the films of Peter Greenaway these films films are visual masterpieces. The martial arts in it is spectacular, however I am not really an aficionado of martial arts so I can’t say how it compares to other films.

I suppose another reason it is on my list of top movies is it was one of the first movies I watched it with my husband who at the time was my boyfriend.
