Around Toronto...

Sorry to all non-Torontonians for getting into the "center of the universe" Toronto mindset . I've only been here a few months and its already happened to me, but that's alright because there is plenty of good stuff happening around town. As Chris points out, Thursday's All Things Are Connected should be a good opportunity for Toronto's young PR folks to get together, network, and learn a bit more about the trade. I expect that I'll see Ed Lee, and maybe few of the other young bloggers there. Maybe this guy will even step out of his Facebook bubble to show his face in meatspace.

About a year or so ago, I read a great short story by this guy, that was written in blog-form, then followed up by a comic. I thought it was a wonderful way to self-publish, and I look forward to seeing his upcoming film, Infest Wisely. Its not exactly PR-related, but definitely looks pretty sweet.

And on that note, I'd like to point out that Labyrinth is a great little book store that has just opened on Bloor street, and that they are using a blog to promote themselves. What a great way to highlight new products as they arrive in store. I'm sure that real enthusiasts can subscribe to the RSS feed. My friend bought some beautiful paintings from local artists there the other day, and I'm hoping to pick some up myself.

Fighting fans can get their fix at my colleague Sean's blog, Superman Punch. He told me that the name of the blog comes from a boxing move or something, but I think it sounds like a great name for a high-alcohol party drink.

And lastly, I don't know what anyone else's plans are for the long weekend, but I've been missing the beautiful waves of Maui and the Gold Coast, so I'm hoping to head to Montreal to do this.
