So sorry for the sparse postings but I've been busy with things/life/doing stuff lately - went to my cousin's wedding, checked out Word on the Street(photos - ok only 2, but one is of Ohbjiou at the Eye Weekly Music Stage), had some mindless(but entertaining) fun seeing "Eagle Eye" with a friend this past Monday, getting my My Bloody Valentine concert review (previous blog post) finally up this past week, hanging out with some workmates after work a few days ago and checking out The Wedding Present and Dirty On Purpose at Lee's Palace yesterday night.
Tonight, Nuit Blanche (although with all the Nuit Blanche Stille Post threads currently plus my recollection of the chaos of last year[especially around Bloor & University], I'm feeling a little overwhelmed about it at the moment.)
