What? They want to tear this down and make a parking lot? Idiots.

Club Matador dancing, originally uploaded by Sue, Toronto.

They want to tear down this landmark night club for a parking lot for twenty cars. Twenty lousy smog producing cars. Hey, this is right on the streetcar line and close to the Dufferin bus. It's Toronto, not LA.

I think this squirrel is happy to see me.

Off College Street near Kensington Market. These are remnants of one of those art projects where they give the same blank statue to various artists and have them paint or decorate it. There used to be a bunch of them all over the city but their numbers have dwindled.

A hot dog topped with onions, hot peppers and corn relish.

There are a lot of hot dog/sausage stands in Toronto, as that is the only type of street food currently allowed to be sold. They call it street meat! But they may change the law and I hope they do it soon.

Building Eats Smaller Building

Building Eats Smaller Building, originally uploaded by Melsky.

This building always reminds me of a big square cthulu type monster eating something. Seriously, buildings on pillars with this much glass make me nervous. I guess it's because I come from earthquake country or something, but I think about stuff like that a lot. Then again, brick buildings seem so solid but unreinforced masonry just crumbles in an earthquake. That's why you don't see many brick buildings in California, most of them collapsed in some earthquake or another, and I think it's really expensive to build to code with bricks there now.

More movie posters. I like the green of this wall, it fits in well with the lake monster image on the poster. It looks like a pretty silly movie.
