Paolo Nutini at the Roundhouse.

Spent last night with this one. No regrets. Well worth the visit to my least-favourite Toronto venue!!

We should hunt out the helpful pieces of teaching and the spirited and noble-minded sayings which are capable of immediate practical application–not far far-fetched or archaic expressions or extravagant metaphors and figures of speech–and learn them so well that words become works.

I found myself overwhelmed by the beautiful weather this weekend, and felt inspired to fire up the turntables and throw down a selection of the funkiest feel good summertime sounds suitable for dancing in your living room, sitting outside in the sun, driving to the cottage, or however you plan to spend your days over the coming months of sunshine.

Janelle Monae & Kimbra present the Golden Electric Tour - Rock Steady/Wanna Be Starting Something

I don’t know Kimbra, but I freaking LOVE Janelle Monae!

Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it - that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing - an actor, a writer - I am a person who does things - I write, I act - and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.
