Check this out: a webseries episode was filmed in my apartment! Amazing work, Oliver Brackenbury, Mark Zanin and team -- I can't believe you barely needed to change anything to make it look like a creepy old man lived there, but I won't hold it against you. ♥

ABOUT THE SHOW:

"Our fine arts were developed, their types and uses were established, in times very different from the present, by men whose power of action upon things was insignificant in comparison with ours. But the amazing growth of our techniques, the adaptability and precision they have attained, the ideas and habits they are creating, make it a certainty that profound changes are impending in the ancient craft of the Beautiful. —Paul Valéry, Aesthetics

At the inception of our art form, someone was a photographer if he (or very occasionally she) owned and knew how to operate a camera. The early equipment was unwieldy, expensive, and temperamental, and many of the first practitioners were scientists and gentlemen of leisure. With the invention of new and more portable equipment, photographers took to the streets, and it became possible for new and dynamic events to be documented. As the equipment grew easier to use, an increasing number of families and individuals had the power and technology to capture their personal milestones, travels, and everyday experience.

Some 185 years later the camera has become a ubiquitous presence in our society; a component of that indispensable personal device, the mobile phone. Particularly in our large cities, if something notable happens on the streets, chances are good that we were there to see and record it. Not only do our day-to-day lives play out under the watchful eye of corporations and law enforcement; we are also observed by one another, everywhere, all of the time. Thus, the ordinary cell phone user has a unique opportunity to create impromptu or even covert art like never before.

Recent software advancements have paved the way for a vintage aesthetic, tracing a lineage back through the otherworldly colours of analog cross-processing, to the polaroids and faded snapshots of our childhood family albums, and the grainy immediacy of high-speed black and white.

This juried exhibit at the IX Gallery presents images captured on the phones of professional and amateur photographers, artists, and documentarians. We have solicited images from the general public as well as the fine art community, and in doing so have created a collection that demonstrates the power and infinite potential of a society in which everyone can be a photographer.

My boyfriend and I used My Ninja Movers this weekend to get my stuff from my place, then his stuff from his place, and then take it all up three flights of narrow outdoor stairs into our new home. It was a complicated operation, including many stairs and many fragile and/or heavy items, and absolutely could not have gone better! Andre was fantastic when we made our booking, and the guys (Ferdinand and another mover whose name we unfortunately didn't catch) called on their way, arrived on time, and worked SO hard to get the job done. Every single part of the entire experience was professional, organized and friendly. It made our move so much more positive an experience than expected, and was worth every penny of the cost (which, by the way, was extremely reasonable). Thank you, My Ninja Movers!

This might be my new favourite restaurant! The food was absolutely incredible: I had the medallions in a sundried tomato cream sauce and it blew my mind. The texture and taste were perfect and I can't wait to order the same thing again, although their other offerings are probably great. The Caesar salad was top notch as well. Our host and server were so welcoming, efficient and professional! It's easy to see why the place was full on a Wednesday evening. Bravo!

This place rocks! I can't even believe how responsive and professional they were, how fast they were able to repair my phone, and how reasonable the charges were. This is my best retail experience of 2013. If the store owner is reading this, thank you so much for all the service you gave me for my $40 order! It blew my mind. :)
