Hey TOBFers, if you aren't doing anything May5th in the evening time, drop into the Jet Fuel and check out our show. We've hooked up with a few local and out of town artists on a lil collaboration. All fun stuff though, and there will be drinks and coffee (of course) and a raffle and the artists will be there (Taliah is still a "maybe" right now, but maybe!, the works she's hanging with us are here and beautiful) Just 6 examples on the sneak preview thing, but there will be 14 bags and works by the other artists total 6-7. Lotsa fun people and good times.

I agree that Charbucks coffee is quality free.

are we certain the swap starts at 9?

edit: also, does anyone here listen to Isis? Anyone going to the show this Thursday? Anyone want to go?

edit #2: Does anyone want to go see "METAL: A Headbanger's Journey" tomorrow at The Royal (College St, in Little Italy)? I think I'm definitely going to check it out. It's playing at 2:00 and 7:00. Here is their page, here is the official site, and here is the Rotten Tomatoes entry.

Very cool.. and yeah, the plum tree and the bonsai ones are both (coincidentally) very nice.

The gf's new tattoo:

- Japanese red maple branches across her back (think old Japanese watercolour print styles) w/ song birds sitting on them.
- Maple leaves blowing off the branches and going down her back, wrapping across her ribs and down her stomach.

Hellooo, awesomeness.

Given the choice between a chain and an indie shop that does espresso, the choice will always be the indie (unless I've had a bad shot there ). I haven't found anywhere else within a couple blocks of my house that is consistent.

Also, yes, before the swap. I'm fairly certain it's going to be rainy though, but that's not going to stop me. I feel the need to stretch my legs. I'm not even *that* interested in the swap, I just want to get out on the bike for a bit.
yeah i hate myself for it but one of the few espressos i enjoy is from starbucks. i guess that's the thing with evil corporations is that their quality control is top notch so one pull of espresso in timbucktoo is the same as one in toronto. i've searched long and hard for a bean that i like that is ****bucks but the only one that comes close is alternative grounds on roncesvalles. i'd me down for meeting for espresso and doing some laps before the swap. operator suggested 8:30? how about moonbeam at 8:30? if you get this in time that is... i'm a little drunk and i'm heading to bed so here's hoping that i make it there in time.

You want to meet up at 8:30 in the ****ing morning? Are you ****ing kidding me, man?

PS. I've wanted to get the illustrations from Gray's Anatomy (http://www.bartleby.com/107/) done as sleeves for a few years now. When the day finally comes that I find myself rolling in cash money, hopefully it'll happen.

Edit: Hahaha, oh God ... this hits close to home but it's still hilarious: http://www.sleevesclothing.com/mens/...nese_white.htm

well they were tektro rx 2's & they are secured to the bars by 1 bolt.
I tightned the bolt too tight so the other side went *PING* and snapped.
which now makes my brake levers as useful as castanets.

Hey guys, I'm in town but no go on coffee in the morning. I'm gonna be down at the swap for 9 to line up cause I loves those deals... and apparently my dad was down for the MEC swap last year and he was there an hour before and still didn't make it in till the 3rd group...


Hopefully the rain keeps some people away though... if it clears up later in the day or this week, I'd love to go for a ride though!
