Yesterday’s ice storm was depressing to live through, and somewhat dangerous for people out and about, but at least it looked nice.

[PHOTO] Four photos taken on Dovercourt Road at night, from Hepbourne to Dupont

Last night after midnight, I found myself taking a walk north on Dovercourt Road, starting at College Street and heading up to Dupont Street at home. It took a half-hour in the light rain, giving me plenty of time to take in the street as it changed. The night, I was reminded, can be colourful, even if the colours are muted.

[MUSIC] Five music links: Tom Lehrer, Toronto hip-hop, TTC music, Ladytron, Eurythmics

leave a comment »

  • This Nature feature on the musics of the brilliant satirist Tom Lehrer is a must-read.
  • Lidia Abraha argues at NOW Toronto that more investment needs to be directed towards the burgeoning hip-hop talent of the city.
  • Transit Toronto notes that auditions for the next crop of musicians licensed for TTC stations are now ongoing.
  • Ladytron is back, Noisey notes, with a new video for their new single “The Animals”.
  • This article in The Independent interviewing Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox about their joint musical achievements in the Eurythmics, as their albums are set to be reissued on vinyl, makes me want to buy a record player.
