I don’t usually read Toronto Life magazine, but this spread does it right. I’ve been working with a lot of the folks pictured above to change the laws around, basically, FARM CITY. A lot of people in Toronto, and elsewhere, wanna keep hens to promote food security, to create community and to eat well. I’m hoping that a new bylaw will be going forward in the new year. EXCITING TIMES FOR THE FUTURE OF FARM CITY // CITY FARM!

FILM NORTH

Film North Festival by Concrete Design. Toronto.

I’D LIKE TO GO NEXT YEAR!

Film North, Huntsville International Film Festival, is the newest place for a small, simple, excellent festival in a remote location. Huntsville is a two hour drive north of Toronto, in the beautiful lake district setting of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. Movie lovers can continue after attending the Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF, the first two weekends of September, to the lovely setting of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada, the third weekend of September. Our mandate is to create a user – friendly environment for emerging Canadian and International Filmmakers to exhibit, promote, entertain and inform the audience. We are an incorporated non profit organization. Our board of Directors are from the film, arts and business sectors. The founders are residents of Toronto and Huntsville, with backgrounds in the Film and Arts professions.

The branding presents the festival, and the town of Huntsville, as an unpretentious, welcoming place for young talent from around the world. Concrete combined standard festival imagery – like the Cannes laurel leaves – with northern Canadiana kitsch. This approach capitalizes on a great part of the Canadian psyche – the ability to make fun of ourselves.

This is one of the best things I’ve seen lately. For real. Girl making graffiti, ships on streets, the things I like most these days.
For more work by Nina, go here.

Nice time for a revolution?

...insiders!

escif is prolific as fuck. check out hundreds of large-scale pieces here. I’m really into the style and the subject matter – a mix of natural motifs, portraits and architectural elements.

“One day the person you love will say she doesn’t love you and you won’t understand. It happened to me. I would’ve liked her to tell me how to endure her absence. She didn’t say anything.”

“This is the city and I am one of the citizens; whatever interests the rest interests me…
Politics, churches, newspapers, schools,
benevolent societies, improvements, bank tariffs,
steamships, factories, markets,
stocks and stores and real estate and personal estate.”

[WHITMAN]

“And then I said… Do you plan to make revolution with cliches? And Jacinto answered that frankly there was no way he was planning to make revolution anymore, but that if some night he happened to be in the mood, then making it with cliches and the lyrics of sappy love songs wouldn’t be such a bad idea.”

“Why do men cry at night? Because of fights and feats and marathon preferment, because the want their mothers, because they are blind in time, because of all the hard-ons they have to whistle up out of the thin blue yonder, because of all that men have done. Because they can’t be happy or sad anymore – only smashed or nuts. And because they don’t know how to do it when they’re awake. And then there is the information, which comes at night.”
[MARTIN AMIS]
