Tuesday Tidbits: March 13, 2007 (part 1)

Posted by Chip / March 13, 2007

20070313_springdog.jpgThe spring thaw is upon us! My recent strolls around town have become easier because of the lack of snow and ice, but unfortunately a new impediment has emerged to make walking on our city’s sidewalks a skillful task: canine feces. Piles and piles of feces. As is rite of passage for the changing of the winter season in Montreal, the spring thaw reveals an unsightly – and often foul smelling – residue of poop. Just don’t stop to think about it too much or you may find yourself with tainted memories of the drunken snow angel you happily produced on the walk in front of your apartment.

Anyhoo, on to today’s media bites from around town…

The planet’s indie music eyes are upon Austin, Texas this week as the South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival is underway. What does this have to do with Montreal? Well besides the numerous local bands performing, Midnight Poutine’s own John Macfarlane is blogging at the festival for the Gazette. His first of three features appears in last Saturday’s print edition.

Faceless Invasion aims to take over Montreal at the end of this month. It seems like this event will be an overproduced, hyped up pub crawl with Mexican masks and nudity – but see for yourself... Montreal film workers are hoping the recent success of the movie 300 will reenergize the local movie making scene...This sad story gives new meaning to the phrase, “it’s my party and I can cry if I want to.” I remember kids getting shot with bi-bi guns, but this is ridiculous...La Presse takes a look at the Leadership hopefuls in anticipation of the potentially pivotal debate tonight....And although the Greens aren’t invited, they’re still doing their best to get their message across. I wonder how they feel about the PQ’s use of green campaign signs to promote their environmental stance? It had me confused.

I found myself dodging plenty of doggie mines yesterday while trying to film a new vlog! Luckily for me I resisted the urge for a drunken snow angel this year in front of my apartment!
