Look at what I found/read/saw/ate/listened to this week
When my sister was here we spent one afternoon drinking coffee and eating Vegetarian Antipasti at John’s Italian Caffe on Baldwin. I sort of forgot all about that little street for a bit. Although it was a little too hot to do so on the day we were there, I really like sitting on their patio out front. A good place to do some people watching!
That same day we wandered over to Nathan Phillips Square and looked at Ai Weiwei’s art installation Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads. You can see photos of me and Ana posing with our Chinese zodiac animals above. I am especially looking forward to his exhibition at the AGO which opens August 17th.
Have you seen the trailer for The Fifth Estate? It’s a film made by Dreamworks about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. I cringed as soon as I saw that this was coming out. It may be interesting but I am going to assume it takes a pretty pro ‘merica stand point and that the script also took liberties with the “truth”. I am also surprised that this film has already been made considering that the Julian Assange story, as far as I can tell anyway, is far from over. Side note, I wonder if the CBC cares that the film used one of their network’s TV show titles?
