The Week Without Poutine - March 1

Posted by Luc / March 1, 2011

To all my faithful readers (all -3 of you), I apologize for my absence last week. The Valentine's day articles were too much the week before, and my eyes needed to recover from all the sexy pictures Jeremy sent me. When I say recover, I mean stop the blood flow. When I say eyes, I mean...my face. KOI?

This week's gonna be short and sweet because nothing interesting happens this time of year (except for breakups). We're in that disgusting part of winter when virtually everyone is sick to some degree and you just want it to end. Except for the St Patrick's day parade on March 20th. That will be heavenly. Let's do it:

---------------------
Montreal Bird's Eye View - Spacing Montreal
You see it every time you take a plane, but the view of Montreal from the sky is pretty wonderful. Even in the wintertime. Speaking of winter, did anyone else smell the spring in the air this past week?20110301_mmpix_3.jpg

---------------------
How We Can Make Montreal the Open Source Startup Hub - Next Montreal
I've been saying since I started writing this column: Montreal is the place to be if you're looking to launch a startup. Great lengthy article by "gpoo" (hehe) about the steps to follow to get it done. 20110301_mmpix_1.jpg

---------------------
It's over: Journal workers approve contract by 64% - Fagstein
This fight started before I even lived in Montreal, and I really don't pay much attention to the media here (except for all you fine bloggers, of course). Does this really change much? Doesn't this newspaper still come out every week or day or whatever? Unions are silly. Capitalism rocks. Dictatorships own. 20110301_mmpix_5.jpg

---------------------
Fondre comme neige au soleil - Hochelaga Goddamn
What is even happening on this blog? A 100-year-old picture with sounds of today's cars driving around? What the hell kind of post is this?

---------------------
Quittez Facebook - Branchez Vous
An article about a video that is clearly a Love Actually parody that implores people to quit Facebook. Although I agree with a lot of the stuff this guy says in the video, I do believe people are left to their own devices. Facebook didn't come out of nowhere, it came through the evolution of social media. "LOL" didnt start with Facebook, it started on messenger chats. And besides, Facebook is the only way I can ogle men and women alike without my girlfriend noticing. Heck, I even ogle her pictures while she's sitting beside me. Also, I think the guy in the video stole my iPod at a party once.

---------------------
1/2 off Smackdown at Montreal Improv - Montreal On the Cheap
At first I thought this was for WWE Smackdown, and that I could get half-price tickets, and then we could all reminisce about the Montreal screwjob. Alas, they're half-price tickets for Improv, not Bret Hart getting fucked over. 20110301_mmpix_6.jpg

---------------------
NOT MONTREAL
Hundreds of Tourist Photos Weaved into One - My Modern Met
Wow. Just wow. 20110301_mmpix_4.jpg

ALSO AMAZING

Hey Ross, great video man. Solid gold, I'll eventually tveral to see some of your seminars These days I watched a movie that portrays so exactly what you say about devotion being over the top. It's Two Lovers with Gwyneth Paltrow and Joaquim Phoenix (the emperor guy from Gladiator).I mean it's kinda painful to watch the movie as it portrays so well a guy who goes beyond where we would like someone to go. And well, I guess he should have watched this video here or gone to one of your seminars hehe.Cheers,Andrew
