1. Who Makes the Nazis? - The Fall

    This version kicks ass. 

  2. Dream Big - Larry Yes

    This song has been stuck in my head on & off for a few weeks now. Finally found it on my itunes. Yay. From a Mississippi Records cassette.

  3. The Nomi Song (2004)
A clever and well put together documentary about Klaus Nomi and the New York new wave scene of the late 70s & early 80s. Compelling.

  4. Grand Budapest Hotel (2013) dir. Wes Anderson
I watched this expecting to hate it, but, I was charmed like a kid in a candy store. Sure, the set design is oh so perfect, everything is so meticulously framed and confectionary colours abound, but it tells a good story too. A fun little cunning caper wrapped in pink tissue paper is fine by me.

  5. The Crash Reel (2013)
I like sports documentaries and this one gave me all the feelings. The first part of the film deals with Kevin Pearce’s rise in the world of snowboarding and the second half about his rehabilitation and family life after a serious crash that left him with a serious brain injury. It’s a fascinating and moving story.

  6. Days of Wine and Roses (1962) dir. Blake Edwards
It’s hard to hate a movie that just looks so good. This film is a bit cheeseball, from the drippy Mancini score to the overwrought acting, but Jack Lemmon is so likeable and the black and white photography is so rich, plus the opening sequence at the bar is really great. A bit of a buzz kill, meh.

Sam Kee Building, 1936
Located at 8 West Pender Street, the Sam Kee building is recognized as the skinniest commercial building in the world. It’s also a prime example of a “spite building.” Chang Toy built it in 1913 after much of his large corner lot was expropriated by the city to widen Pender Street. Toy’s neighbour assumed that he would be able to pick up the remaining six foot wide lot for dirt cheap. Toy wasn’t too fond of his neighbour and so refused to sell and built this instead, just to piss him off. The Sam Kee Building is now owned by Jack Chow Insurance and is currently getting a face-lift.

  15. A Dream of Donuts - a video by Meesoo Lee & me

    In honour of bullshit donut day, here is an under 2 minute movie I made with my friend, Meesoo way back in the late 1990’s. A true story of a dream I had when I was a kid.
