I don't know how to ice skate and I know I'll just be learning how not to fall down by the time everybody wants to go somewhere else :[

So I do not know how interested people are in Rural Alberta Advantage but they have MP3s here. Also their drummer is the drummer for woodhands if that means anything to anybody's perception of their worth as a band.

i am totally definitely up for rural alberta advantage but i still do not know if i actually have the entire weekend off work yet, so i can't give a solid commitment yet. it is 99% likely i will be there though, i will know soonish.

tickets are only $13.50 but it looks like they are being sold via ticketmaster so it is actually going to be closer to about $20 per person :(

That's not bad, but if this is anything like Chicagocon I'll be making my way into the city around the time y'all are at the show. But it might be different - I don't have much control over the time I leave.

also here are some other recommendations:

- art gallery of ontario
- royal ontario museum
- ontario science center
- casa loma
- shopping at kensington market
- gorging on chocolate and ice cream at soma - they make the best hot chocolate ever
- go to beaches, get drunk, black out, wake up with sand everywhere

(i will probably do the last two regardless of whether or not anyone else decides to come with me)

Casa Loma?  More like Casa Lame-a

May I also suggest:

-- Rent some bicycles at http://communitybicyclenetwork.org/ and go on a bike tour

-- Comedy at Second City (students get in for $15 most of the time)

-- Distillery District

yeah i don't really care about casa loma either, i just figured i would throw that in there on the off chance that somebody might later go "aw man you guys why didn't we do casa loma in toronto, if i had known about that i would have gone" and then i would have to be all "uuugh okay fine i am sorry we did not see the dumb castle" but i am not really keen on seeing the big dumb castle either to be honest.

I don't really know anything about Casa Loma.  It is basically just a house that you can tour, that happens to be a castle?  This is what I've gotten from ten seconds on wikipedia.

I am down with checking out as museum or gallery or something though, if others are up for it.  Also, beaches would be spectacular.  Montreal is without sand, and after living in Vancouver for so long, I've gone in to a sort of waterfront withdrawal.

Can we drink on the beaches on the islands? I would totally sneak hooch onto the islands and drink on the beaches in the cold and the wind but I do not know if that is everyone else's thing.

however, i might not be able to come to all of the fun tr2nnocon activities because i am currently being a hermit and doing nanowrimo. but i would definitely want to have a pancake dinner with you guys.

i am staying in markham (ugh) but i also have a car (yay!), which is essentially useless in toronto because the cost of gas and parking is outrageous compared to the cost of just buying a day or week pass for the ttc and also who wants to drive in disgusting congested toronto traffic anyway but i guess it could be useful if anyone wants to do anything outside downtown toronto (the only thing i can think of is going to the zoo again so probably not).

rural alberta advantage was sold out by the time i got to rotate this, sadly, but the good news is that i found out from talking to the dude working there that two of my favourite localish bands, the magic and parlovr, are playing friday november 20th and sunday november 22nd respectively. both shows are $5 at the door or pay what you can.

if i had to pick only one i would probably pick parlovr, they are lots of fun live and sound kind of like the arcade fire's first ep except louder and with more banging on things but i would be down with going to either one or both of these if anyone else is.

it's $24.50 which doesn't seem too unreasonable to me.
but if you don't think it's worth it, no big deal, i might be going with a real life acquaintance anyway!

tania, i will check out the bands the bands you mentioned later. i would consider going to see one, but not both because i'm still trying to do nanowrimo and that pretty much eats up all of my spare time.

So I e-mailed The Rural Alberta Advantage asking if they could slip us in to the show anyways because I really liked them at Hillside and my friends and I were looking forwards to seeing them play and I'd promise to buy some merch/discs if they could help us out, and I just got a reply saying that their guest list is all full for the Toronto show but he could put us on guest list if we wanted to come to London the following night.
On the one hand I am dissapointed that my genius scheme to go to the show failed, on the other hand I am very pleased that this dude would be willing to guest list a stranger who wanted to come to his show. I guess it is to be expected that their guest list would already be full in Toronto but hey I'm happy that he replied and would guest us in London.

p.s. I am trying to somehow work into my reply e-mail that we're a get-together from the internet converging on toronto with a dude coming in from montreal and a dude coming in from whereverthehellyoulive kvp but I am finding it hard to do so without sounding really lame. Will try harder!

so even though i booked friday off i still somehow got roped into working which kind of blows but luckily it is only until 2pm so i still have the evening off. does anyone want to do anything friday before seeing the magic (if anyone wants to go see them with me maybe), like dinner or drinks or something? i think it would be nice to get together beforehand since the show does not start until like 11pm and i have most of the evening off anyway and it looks like all of the attendees will be here by friday evening.

also i am working crazy hours now on account of having booked the weekend off (even though they made me work friday regardless, what the heck is up with that?) so if i'm not online when anyone needs me to be and you're in the toronto area you can call or text me at 416 909 6676 and i will do my best to get back to you pronto.

Sup y'all.

So I can't make it on Friday. I can possibly make it on Thursday evening and definitely on Saturday night, but given the amount of money this is going to cost me I'd rather not show up on Saturday night and only hang out on Sunday. It's just not worth it.

So I'm planning on Thursday evening. Man it's going to be hectic. I have three assignments due and I have to go straight from school to the airport. Funnnn.

the magic are playing at 11pm at wrongbar which is located on 1279 queen street, between lansdowne and dufferin. i don't know the area too well but i have heard great things about golden turtle (vietnamese), the rhino (burgers) and shanghai cowgirl (basically everything) which are all located within 10-15 mins walking distance of the venue. i am really not picky about food though so if anyone else has suggestions, fire away.

That is a shame dude. Could you try stand-by? We might not be worth trying to fly stand-by though.


I would be happy with any of those food things tania. I am kind of leaning towards the place called 'shanghai cowgirl' because that is a great thing for a place to be called.
