This Week in Blogs for May 3 - Spring Forward

Posted by Scott / May 3, 2007

sunny-trees.jpgThis Week in Blogs, we are picking up on the warmer weather and Montreal’s love of sound, skin and sin!

Off the top, Masala offers a post linking to the World Up mixtape, put out by a non-profit organization promoting cross-cultural understanding and global education through hip hop. Is there anything hip hop can’t do? Masala also offers the 4th instalment of his “Masala To Go” mix, featuring some baille funk and R&B to blast from your back balcony. On the whole, there’s enough warm wattage here to keep even the loosest hips moving, at least back up to the bar for another mojito.

Maybe you want more...?

Keeping the music-vibe alive, the In Over Your Head podcast has ended a contract with Sirius satellite radio, leaving its hype-bloated corpse solely to Howard Stern and behind-the-curve media pundits. However, if you dig hip hop and local perspectives you can still get the IOYH podcast via the web.

If you are looking for some fashion tips for this warmer weather, maybe you should check out the MTL Street blog. Similar to VICE Magazine’s “Dos and Don’ts” (without the dripping sarcasm), MTL Street goes out trying to highlight the street style of Montreal fashionistas.

It is a worthwhile read, especially if you are standing in your living room with only an oversized shirt, hideously ugly belt, and mirrored sunglasses to cover your stylish midriff. You’re like the fashion MacGyver – let this blog be your guide.

Finally, in the “sin” department, Metroblogging Montreal posts that they’ve asked several Montreal (Yul)bloggers to offer up their Porn Names. Perhaps you should read this – just to see if anyone is stealing your nom de sexe.

Bring on the warm times! And another drink!

See you Next Week in Blogs.

Wait. Is MacGyver not fashionable? All this time I have taken my cues in fashion, handywork, and, indeed, life from MacGyver. Say it ain't so.

Well, this was the week of the Montreal Change-Up. It's less of a seasonal thing than an attitude change. For many of us, it has to do with the end of the Winter semester. It's not just a psychological thing. It's a life-changing event, every year.

(Finished grading instead of going to YulBlog. But now, I can live.)
