Condo Killers

Toronto is in the middle of a condo boom, the billboards appearing everywhere, proudly proclaiming the outrageous prices being asked. Usually with big ticket items the price is not shouted so (ok, cars), but with condos it is just the opposite.

"From $800, 000 to over 2 million!"

(these range from the pretentious "Home to Kings" One Bedford project on Bloor to the ridiculous and more than a little disturbing "Brad J. Lamb" campaign (if you live here you know what I mean...though using sheep imagery to represent condo buyers is inspired))

Btw, the "One Bedford" project uses King Tut's image on their billboards. The Pharaohs should rise up and smite these upstart commoners..imho

So let it be written, so let it be done.

Many are appearing in so called "poorer" neighbourhoods, a foothold they are not soon to give up. (one such project has it's viewing "office" spray painted with the words "GET OUT")

So, this story from 42 caught my eye....

So some pissed-off people barged into the sales office of a luxury condo building in Brooklyn on Sunday, angry about the $500,000 to 1.3 million price of the crackerboxes and also over the nice fat tax subsidy the developer and buyers get from the city due to a relic exemption from the 1970s NY fiscal disaster.

Anyway, it’s heartening to see people fight back against this shit, but kinda sick to read a quote from a privileged princess who had this to say about the protesters:

Jenny Malone, a prospective buyer at Beacon Tower, rushed out when the protesters busted in. “Tell them to get jobs and go live in the projects,” she said. “People just want something for nothing.”

Wow. That kind of hubris is a real buzzkill.

Won't stop 'em though, nothing the rich hate more than the poor...other than minorities (condo advertising in Toronto remains the whitest you'll ever see) and gays of course (unless they have money).

Bush and BushBaby

"Is there anything you want for your birthday?"

"A bushbaby"

"A bushbaby? Well, we'll have to see about that"

"Conservative government slap[s] a ban on news media coverage of the coffins' return home to Canada"

What are they afraid of??

"The cost of the war should always be shown front and center, so we can make informed decisions," Sean Bruyea, a retired captain and veteran of the 1991 Persian Gulf War, who has fought for veterans rights, said in an interview from Ottawa. "We rely a lot on public support. I would hope Canadians would step up to the plate to defend us."

UPDATE: The Beatles confirm online music plans

The Beatles may be preparing to release their music through digital music services

And if they do, and it is through the Music Store, I want to get in my 2 cents with a video that, umm, surfaced 2 years ago.

If not, they missed out an a great slogan

"This is not like planning to invade Quebec"

Would President Bush go to war to stop Tehran from getting the bomb?


and one cool reflection on the story.

The Idiotsy Begins

Available as a download beginning today, [Apple's] Boot Camp allows users with a Microsoft Windows XP installation disc to install Windows XP on an Intel-based Mac, and once installation is complete, users can restart their computer to run either Mac OS X or Windows XP.

Fools! Stop! Now!!!

More artists fight back

oh yeah

The Dixie Chicks are not ready to make nice.

I have never listened to their music, but when they spoke out against Bush, I nodded in their direction with approval.

All hell broke loose for them, but they didn't take it laying down.

Their new single "Not Ready to Make Nice" is straight and to the point, great lyrics and a good song.

Kick ass girls

I'm with Stupid


The song itself may be slightly innocuous, but at least someone somewhere is fighting back against Bush & Co. and the hatred they have have unleashed and promoted with their suedo Christian nonsense.

Stupid is too kind a word.

A Star on ebay

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, a poster I designed is for sale on ebay, and not by me.


But it's not an original, but a "copy" being sold by an organization that had nothing to do with the event the poster was for.

Bit shady, but hey, I'm on ebay!

Now if I can only get Wikipedia to stop deleting The Psychotic Hour entry. Hell even John Moore made it in.
