I like Crumb's personality more than I like his artwork, but damn do I like his artwork.

Ice-T Shot Me in the Face and Eleven Other Stories...

Just got back from lunch to find my order had come in from Canada Post. The release of this book kinda kicked me in the face one morning so I figured I'd give it a look. Supporting Toronto-based author Luke Fox is a good idea too. Featuring 12 different stories involving Gangstarr, Ghost, dead prez, Nas and more.

Pigeons and Burgers on Caledonia Road

I like Caledonia Road. Sitting at St. Clair is the immortal Dairy Freeze. I haven't been in a while, mainly because of the fact that I usually need a bath when I get home. It's the hangover lure for a cure that makes me crave a Dairy Freeze burger and fries with gravy. The deadpan, irritable face of the Greek man dressing my burger, for some strange reason, makes this experience that much more mouthwatering. Bring your pretty girlfriend, it may crack a smile. Don't ever leave us Dairy Freeze, save your recipes on a hard disk for backup just in case.

I don't know what it is man, I just have this affinity for the pigeon. I think because they remind me of myself when I was 16, causing trouble, eating scraps and smoking cigarettes.

"But pigeon droppings cause Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcosis!" Oh boohoo, dry your eyes.

I think they are quite elegant as well. That's why this mural under the bridge at Davenport and Caledonia is cherished by me. A couple of artists put this thing together a few years back. I hope it has the same life expectancy as Dairy Freeze.

What Lead Said to Me

My boy Leadfoot works at a restaurant bar. I visit him there. Not so sure how he feels about that but I think I got the picture last night when flipping through the dinner menu.

But I think he still likes me. He got his nickname not from driving fast, but from breaking boards. I don’t remember him breaking boards too often, but I do remember him killin’ shit!

Please Forgive My Secrets

I've been listening to these records day in and day out. I wake up every morning humming or singing incorrect lyrics from one of their songs. I wish I had good hair and owned some vintage Benetton so I could really show how I feel. Maybe even a pair of dirty Sperry Topsiders.

But this is a secret of mine, so If anyone asks, I been bumpin' that new Juelz track, while wearing a bubble goose.

See the Happiness in His Eyes?

Dario Cecchini - The Butcher of Panzano
Just noticed this masterpiece of a man last night as I rode the stationary bike. Dude set it off! I have never seen so much passion for a piece of meat before. At one point in the program he was showing off his cuts of meat in his freezer. He slapped a slab of beef like it was the inner thigh of a beautiful woman. You gotta respect the affection.
This one's for Fil.

I bet there is a vegan in his bedroom somewhere plotting Dario's assassination.

Poem by Marc, Drawing by Kris

Andy Barrie

He left the US for Canada in 1969 when he received orders to head off to Vietnam. He kills it every day on the Metro Morning show on CBC radio (99.1 FM - Toronto). Fuck those DJ's who act a fool on their morning show. I don't need that shit first thing. But I don't know, dude must have some serious vacation time banked because he's off like 2 or 3 times a week. Nevertheless, he deserves as much time off as he wants. His fill-in is that Matt Conway, or Matt Golloway? He's nice with the mic too. Andy Barrie just announced he will be leaving the Metro Morning show come this March 1st. I think the main reason for him leaving was that he could now sleep in. One love Andy.
