Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Timelapses! Everyone likes them. Here’s one of a trip around the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line first thing in the morning, shot by Tyler Freedman; here’s another of construction on Lake Shore where it crosses overtop of the Gardiner, shot by Spacing‘s Matthew Blackett.
- This week in hipsters: Toronto Life is suddenly defending them, while Leah McLaren has suddenly realized that people don’t like them. She is “of two minds when it comes to hipsters,” which is two more than we thought she had.
- Adam Vaughan and Art Eggleton and Peter Milczyn aren’t today’s only crucial political endorsements. Shelley Carroll (Ward 33, Don Valley East) has got her eyes on one mayoral candidate in particular.
- You’ve probably heard that Mel Lastman has a blog now, and you’ve hopefully also realized that it’s fake. (“He pounded his chubby fist on my desk and screamed in my face his objections,” he writes of Rob Ford.) Here’s who’s behind it.
- Phew—the Jays’ Cito Gaston has got a new job offer, should he so choose.
- And don’t forget to vote in our better Toronto slogan competition, which closes tonight at midnight. The winner’ll be outed next week!
This article said that the Yonge-University-Spadina TTC timelapse was of a trip “at night”; as Freedman puts it on the video’s description on Vimeo, it’s more accurately from the “wee hours of the morn.”
