Biked around the city for a bit. Didn’t bring my DSLR ‘cause it looked like it was gunna rain. What a mistake that was. Why? ‘Cause the city was full on crazy today.
It started with a few guys jumping off the top of a building. I didn’t notice them at first.
What caught my eye was a director’s chair on the street and a bunch of people looking up at the sky. So I was pretty stoked when I looked up to see two guys rappelling face first, high speed off the side of a building.
They were wearing helmet cams (I’m assuming it was a GoPro set up – something I am hoping to acquire in the near future). They were probably shooting the Total Recall remake that has been shooting all over the city the past little wile.
Made it to the Eaton Centre. Stupid Moko. Why did I think this would be a good idea on Pride/Bollywood Awards/G20 anniversary weekend? But I had some Father’s Day present returns to do (I failed this year at the gifts) so I braved it. Lucky for me, there was plenty of crazy at the Eaton Centre, break dancing and dressed from head to toe in a green leotard.
Left in a hurry as skies were darkening. Rode past a few streets that looked exceptionally different from one year ago today.
2010 – G20
2010 – G20
I biked home, past more crazy.
Arrived home a little disappointed in the lack of acknowledgment/attention to the anniversary of the shit that went down at G20 last year.
Turned on the TV and was pleasantly surprised to see a bunch of G20 protests throughout the city. Everything appears to be peaceful, pleasant, and in harmony between the police and protesters – as it should have been last year.
