On The Doomed Ideas Of Rich Kids And Getting Duped Out Of A Subway


by Sean Orr | Manufacturing consent: The tyranny of the talking point. “Public relations professionals outnumber journalists more than four to one in this country – and for good reason…”

Chris Brown denied entry to Canada before Toronto, Montreal shows. I don’t understand all the people celebrating this. Would they cheer derisively if Sean Penn or Charlie Sheen were denied entry to Canada?

The Canadian Man Who Commands a Cult with His Gaze. And no, it’s not Stephen Harper.

Wherein gabillionaire Chip Wilson’s kid foists upon us another ridiculous cliche: Indoor cycling cranks up the tunes, dims the lights for an intense ride (with video). Best comment: “90% of what’s wrong with Vancouver is found in this one terrible video…”

Toronto’s hottest new indie act is Mystery Tunnel: Mystery tunnel found near Pan Am Games venue. Maybe they were bringing in humanitarian supplies to Gaza? Best related tweet:

Public transit is communist. Wow. The nerve of Gordon Clark trying to make this a class issue. Of course, if these serfs all decided to drive he’d be complaining about traffic.

Alas, we’ve been set up: Referendum: The Great Dupe.

A year of the ram miracle: Pet goats get reprieve—for now. Hey does anyone know if Gastown is zoned for goats?

Also in Burnaby: Last call for Mountain Shadow.

Craigslist of the day: Boat Party Need Busty Girls . “This is a motorboat, mingle, hooter shooter kind of thing. and the girls that arent shy make alot of money.” I mean, just the bad grammar and punctuation alone should get this post flagged…
