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…”

Since our first post about Toronto’s Social Media Week the response has been so overwhelming that we’ve decided to host our own event with the help of York University.

Lecture halls, podiums and PhDs are educational institutions still the epic centre of knowledge? What tools are changing how we learn? How can students, teachers, parents and engaged citizens harness social media to improve learning, civic engagement and personal/professional development? Join our discussion with a unique group of trailblazers responsible for some of the cities most thought provoking spaces/events. Hear stories about how the connections we make – between ideas, subjects and people – are transforming education and leading to some amazing results.

1 LOVE T.O.

Last Saturday, January 23rd 1LOVETO.com and Truevagabond.com held their second annual “Thank You” appreciation event. The event is normally FREE, and a chance for our loyal followers to experience a night on us. Due to the extreme conditions in Haiti, we decided to accept donations at the door, both in cash and first aid materials. We’d like to say THANK YOU Toronto, for raising $2,906.55 along with boxes and bags filled with first aid supplies. The additional supplies were donated to the Toronto Mennonite Central Committee.

Our prayers remain with those affected by the earthquake in Haiti.

Special thanks to Zoey Dash & Kit.

Green Roofs In T.O.

GreenRoof_Toronto

It’s official, Toronto is getting a lot greener as of January 31st, 2010. On May 26, 2009 Toronto became the first City in North America to adopt a bylaw to require and govern the construction of green roofs on new development (residential and commercial). The bylaw goes into effect at the end of this month and promises to be one more step in the right direction for the city of Toronto.

Thoughts?
