This past Thursday we attended an exclusive event on the 48th floor (private penthouse) of One King West for the “World’s oldest hockey stick”. The historic stick was independently appraised at $4.25 million, and was up for auction. If that wasn’t exciting enough, the night included a chance to be the first in Canada to drive the Audi R8 Spyder or attend a Leaf’s hockey game in a private box with hockey legends Johnny Bower and Bobby Hull or shoot the breeze with “Mr. Hockey” himself Gordie Howe at a Detroit Red Wings game.

Check out the pics below…

We Are The World – 2010

WeAreTheWorld2010

While we we’re in L.A. for the Grammy’s a few of our friends got “the call”… instead of hanging out with Melanie Fiona, Drake or Justin Bieber, they had to make their way to the Jim Henson studio to join over 80 other artists to record the 2010 version of “We Are The World”. Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie teamed up to produce the new version of the 1985 hit in support of the victims of Haiti’s Earthquake.

Some of the artists included: Wyclef, Drake, Kanye West, Jonas Brothers, Snoop Dogg, Melanie Fiona, Lil’ Wayne, Pink, Justin Bieber, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Gladys Knight, Akon, Mya, Brandy, Robin Thicke, Tyrese, Trey Songz, Jamie Foxx, Toni Braxton, Kid Cudi, LL Cool J, Keri Hilson, Will.I.Am and many more…

The full version of the song will be aired February 12th on NBC during the opening ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.

Lincoln and The Marshin Academy

Lincoln_TheBand

A friend of mine sent me this youtube link today. At first I was like “what is this?” Then I said, “post worthy, this is hot!”
Congratulations to Toronto’s own Lincoln and The Marshin Academy, they’ve got a great sound and a steadily growing number of devoted followers, both online and at their live shows.

I was first introduced to Lincoln while he was rapping with Foundation, today I was re-introduced to Lincoln over some serious guitars and heavy drums. I posted “YOU AND ME” because it was this song that had me sold. This song is a completely different vibe as he sings over an acoustic guitar.

Lincoln, we love your new work and direction. We think our readers will too….?

Drake’s Grammy Performance

By now I know you’ve probably seen this everywhere, but it’s a part of our history and I wanted to share a glimpse into what I felt while being at the Grammy’s.

I felt proud as a friend, a Torontonian, and a fan of music. It was incredible to see Eminem, Wayne and Drake LIVE together on stage. There was a reason behind someone who doesn’t have an album out, who had a magical year, and was wrapping up the Grammy’s with two living legends, with the words “I WANT THIS SHIT FOREVER”.

It didn’t matter that Busta Rhymes, Trey Songz, Katy Perry and Toni Braxton were next to me…for those few minutes I didn’t care about anything but what I was witnessing. I got out of my seat, unbuttoned my suit jacket and realized those words in the song meant so much more to me now…

“it may not mean nothing to ya’ll, but understand nothing was done for me, and I don’t plan on stopping at all, I want this shit forever man…”
