The Week Without Poutine

Posted by Luc / January 12, 2011

We've had enough. It's time to take a stand. No longer are we going to put up with Jeremy's self centered podcasting and obsession with Erin Lang. It's time for us to share our glaring monopoly on the Montreal Blogosphere and spread the wealth (wealth = visitors).

The Week Without Poutine is a new weekly feature where we share with you, our loyal readers, the best of all the other Montreal based blogs that produce such wonderful content every single day. After all, blogging is about linking and sharing, not kicking and punching, and all you need is love, right John Lennon?

Honoring the CFCF 50th anniversary - Fagstein

Steve over at Fagstein provides some great links to celebrate the 50th birthday of one of Montreal's oldest TV Stations. Then he goes on a rant about how digital TV is the devil and wishes we still only received 6 channels.

Montreal From Space - SpacingMontreal
Self-explanatory and the lead image on this article. Good on Spacing to pick on this from NASA.

5 Wintery Things to do that are FREE!! - The Montreal Buzz
I'm actually not sure if this a blog or a Montreal City-Run site, but it's got a lot of cool stuff like 5 things to do in the city this Winter for Free, and Why Dancing at Igloo Fest is awesome.

PK Invites Marcus to the Habs Game - MarcusTroy
Marcus Troy is just barely a Montreal blogger, seeing as his posts are rarely about Montreal (most are about shoes), and he lists himself as living half in the states. Regardless, he is apparently pals with Toronto-Native-Playing-For-The-Team-He-Grew-Up-Hating PK Subban, and went down to the game the other night. Note what would be nice colorful pictures from inside the Bell Center have mysteriously lost their saturation.

Top 100 songs of 2010 - SaidTheGramaphone
Ok this post is actually a whole month old, but some of the tracks are still available for download and its definitely worth checking out.

NON-MONTREAL BLOG POST OF THE WEEK
OffBeat Photography - MyModernMet
Unfortunately, My Modern Metropolis is not based in Montreal (they are in L.A.), but their style suits our city anyway. The blog features incredible photo and culture collections, all usually with some type of added twist. They really have a knack for either A) Creating this stuff or B) Finding other people who do.

NON-POUTINE PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Mont-Royal Hot Dog Kiss - Street Scene
Although taken in the summer (I hope), it only came up in the newsfeed this week. It's also the picture featured below, in case you are linked-the-fuck-out at this point.

I don't recall writing anything about digital TV being evil, or wanting fewer channels than we have now. I'm simply calling for more local programming.

I'm sure you're trying to be funny here, but either the joke is based on a false premise or it goes straight over my head.

I sent out on of the team to enter into town to locate some medicine, yet they had
no good fortune. The pastor who supervises the
orphanage was working on developing a tiny space to store
the meals in. The orphanage has enough food at the moment.
I understand the WFP came by and gave the orphanage some meals after the quake.

Consequently, what one sees is an emerging trend based upon increased information and a
greater regard for individual safety. Just add Archipelago Botanicals' Oat Milk Bath Salts, which heals damaged areas and banishes impurities
for soft, radiant skin. Just make sure that when you hit the plastic,
it's for something that makes you feel fantastic.
