I am going to live in the dark

(viewed 1144 times)
I am seriously going to the Toronto International Film Festival this year. I spent my time on the train figuring out what to see and how it fit into the schedule. I really think they should give us some sort of application to do this. It's way hard.

train to montreal

(viewed 1150 times)
it fascinates me how speed changes perception. the trees blur, the lake, the horizon is all you can focus on. what happens in the TGV in France? do you look only at the horizon?

toy exchange

the rules: Frizzle can chew a train track if Oscar can put her leash on godzilla, and go in and out of her crate. She is not allowed to play with cars so they are lined up safe on the chair. Frizzle has to catch things Oscar throws.

it worked really well but Frizz tried to take Godzilla for a walk.

it's raccoon time again

we all got a shock when I went up to my studio last night and turned on the light. the top shot is totally out of focus, but I think it shows just how shocked that little guy was.

tramp art

(viewed 1981 times)
for paintist. I bought this at a yard (trans. boot) sale and later someone explained to me that it was tramp art--after reading this, it turns out that tramp art was not what I originally thought it was--payment during the old, not current American depression.

garbage strike is OVAhhh.

(viewed 1819 times)
might not mean a lot to you, but here in Toronto, the first garbage pickup in a month was sensational. The hockey rink was filled with garbage during the strike. It has been scoured clean many times and it still smells.

the garbage strike of 2009 is not going to be forgotten, and mayor is politically toast. the union is too.

lots of pumpkin flowers

(viewed 5579 times)
but no pumpkins. that little round bit in the bottom of the middle should make itself into my hallowe'en pumpkin, but no bees want to risk the rain. drowned farmer dreams.
