Pieter Ampe & Guilherme Garrido took male bonding to a whole other level Tuesday night in their World Stage debut of Still Standing You. Using their bodies as instruments to shamelessly seek out what they mean to each other, no physical or emotional stone was left unturned. Still Standing You is unique, startling, hilarious and physically intense. So physically intense, actually, that Pieter and Guilherme can only perform the piece, at the most, two consecutive days in a row.
Several minutes of a variety performance by The Good Company, from a 1968 CBC “Show of the Week” hosted by Juliette (who also appears in the segment). The man performing “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” is Frank Moore, who went on to a busy acting career that included co-starring in the David Cronenberg horror classic “Rabid”.

I love that this bookshop is getting some MAJOR love from the NYTimes. Owner Stephen says in the article : “If a book exudes an aura of tragic nostalgia or irretrievable loss, I consider it macabre. I remember an Avon products catalog from the 1940s. It was printed in fading pastel colors, and still had the scent of powdery old-lady perfume. The book’s presence was just eerie — it conjured up a long-dead Avon lady in the doorway.”
I bought that very catalog from him… and it’s scent still lingers ever so slightly.
A tiny shop in Toronto, specializing in the arcane and the absurd, may just be publishing’s great new hope.
“This isn’t the store where you’ll find the book you were looking for,” Fowler says. “It’s the store where you’ll find the book you didn’t know you were looking for.” You may find something else surprising at the Monkey’s Paw, too: a glimpse of the future, a way forward for the old-fashioned bookstore in the age of the iPhone and the e-book.
“The experience of Web browsing makes it possible for a shop like this to exist,” Fowler says. “The randomness of the book displays, they’re like the Web — masses of unrelated information popping up next to each other, their context pretty much wiped out. Basically, the Monkey’s Paw is a celebration of old print culture, presented in way that resonates with digital-age people.”

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. — Canadian country-folk legend Stompin’ Tom Connors, whose toe-tapping musical spirit and fierce patriotism established him as one of Canada’s strongest cultural icons, has died. He was 77. Connors passed away Wednesday from what a spokesman described as “natural causes.”
Brian Edwards said the musician, rarely seen without his signature black cowboy hat and stomping cowboy boots, knew his health was declining and had penned a message for his fans a few days before his death. In the message posted on his website, Connors says Canada kept him “inspired with it’s beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.”
Connors is survived by his wife Lena, two sons, two daughters and several grandchildren. Dubbed Stompin’ Tom for his propensity to pound the floor with his left foot during performances, Connors garnered a devoted following through straight-ahead country-folk tunes that drew inspiration from his extensive travels and focused on the everyman.
PARACHUTE is the brand name of an integrated design, manufacturing and retailing organization that has, since 1977, marketed its PARACHUTE products on all five continents. This customer, served since 1977 throughout the world, is demanding of high quality in material and construction, insistent on environmental and social responsibility, and uncompromising in the search for state-of-the-art design.

In a Vogue magazine interview, Madonna named PARACHUTE as one of her three favorite fashion sources. PARACHUTE was the outfitter of choice for Madonna and her group, and over a quarter of all the performers, in the Live-Aid concerts telecast around the world.
In film and TV, PARACHUTE was chosen by Miami Vice as their principal wardrobe supplier. Milena Canonero, the Academy Award winning costumer, selected PARACHUTE styles of unconstructed jackets, t-shirts under suits, asymmetrical dresses and everything in black for the show and they became icons for a generation to copy. Woody Allen, with Mia Farrow and Diane Keaton, chose PARACHUTE designs and store interiors for several of his films to represent a New York and L.A. style leadership attitude.
Club: Domino Klub (1 Isabella St.) and then later Klub Domino (279 Yonge St.)
Years in operation: 1979-1987
History: In the late 1970s through much of the ’80s, Yonge and Isabella was an epicentre for emergent music, arts, and fashion culture. The area came alive at night, with numerous booze-cans and after-hours clubs drawing dancers to upper-level locations on Yonge and decadent discos on side streets, especially St. Joseph.
Before Domino’s opened upstairs at 1 Isabella, the venue had been the Cheetah Club. Owned by Gunther Weswaldi, whose background was in the food and beverage industry, the Cheetah was short lived.
It’s thought that Weswaldi and his wife Darlene opened Domino at this address in early 1979. (Weswaldi’s current whereabouts are unknown.) Advertised as a venue where people could meet for “lunch, dinner, dancing, disco,” Domino’s was a licensed restaurant and nightclub open daily. It did not launch with a distinct identity.

Elaine Banks, Jackie Shane documentary, CBC Radio, Inside the Music, edited by David Dacks
I Got Mine, the story of the soul and R&B singer named Jackie Shane.
Shane was one of the most popular singers in Toronto’s thriving R & B scene of the mid-sixties. He was a remarkable figure for his day: he was openly gay and a cross dresser with a flair for fashion. Shane’s magnetic charisma and passionate performances made him a favourite of a generation of Toronto club goers.
This first-ever biography sheds some light on an important figure and time in Toronto’s music history. Interviews with Jackie’s friends and band mates detail his influence on a generation of musicians and performers, and speak of a legacy which extends beyond the realm of music.
