Pitchfork reports on The New Pornographers' upcoming fall tour. Um, still no Toronto date but as Pitchfork points out, there are some holes in the schedule and that it's safe to assume that more dates are to come. By my looks of their new tour dates, my best guess for a Toronto date would be after the Chicago date on October 20th. Now that's just too long of a wait. [photo from http://../]

Ok, so for the next three years I'll be working in my new cellphone. My old Nokia conked out on me a couple of days ago. I was only a Pay-As-You-Go user. Actually, I only had my Nokia phone since around last September 2004. I'll probably get the old phone fixed through the manufacturer's warranty and give it to my dad. Not that I really got that many phone calls previously but hey, it's got a built-in camera!
