I'll try and check out some more Contact exhibits this weekend. There are 3 in the market. I saw part of the one at Xpace before running into someone I hadn't seen in awhile. Cut to coffee and catching up. That's been the best one so far... aboriginals, rights of passage, pretty candid material. There's some local stuff on King east, Toronto Squared I think is what the show is called. We'll see how it is.

there's an interesting one right in the brassai alley where i work. brain farting, can't remember the artist. each piece is a bunch of pics assembled together of the same demographic of people wearing more or less the EXACT same clothes. you'll have old men ALL in their plaid sweaters and corduroy jackets.. old ladies in their raincoats and frumpy hats.. mindless trendy guys in their pre-washed jeans and tight fitting white puma sneakers (ok i made that up).. the power of demographics is really interesting. ok i'm off for mother's dinner with me ma and pa.. (what the hell is wrong with y'all)

I AM, however, looking forward to 42, as that will be my life, the universe and everything year.

Anyone been to the CyclePath at Duff/Bloor recently? Good shoe selection?
i've been in there a few times. actually, i bought an UTW bag there. i can't remember their shoe selection being anything to write home about. i still think Duke's has the best selection, and they have a "shoe guy" who is supposedly the guru of footwear who can fit you with something best suited for you. don't know his name, short white-haired skinny guy, kind of shifty but nice and knows his **it.

I saw images from that series a few months ago online. Pretty cool.

I can't believe I haven't been to a single Contact show. I suck. If anyone wants a gallery accomplice, let me know.

Yeehaw, just picked up a Gardin frame with a curved top tube from Jet Sanchez. It is way cool. I thought it would be bigger and I was thinking about building it up for my brother, but I might just keep the sucker.

Just discovered this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/collective/

Some good stuff on there... watching this right now: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/collective/A1172846

Funny to be tuning in a BBC stream for a Canadian artist.
