Don Valley Parkway rainbow gets a makeover
I had never noticed this tunnel nor heard the story. Pretty cool, though.
Project Brazen 2: OPP now overseeing investigation involving Mayor Rob Ford
and there could be more documents released in the next few weeks.
Emily Nussbaum: The Shallowness of “True Detective”
The backlash begins? Valid point, although I’m not sure the show can be discounted for having too few female characters, or even for the “resentful wife” character. (In this the golden age of TV the main character is the Narcissistic Antihero, and the Resentful Wife follows closely behind with an eye-roll and a harried sigh.) The crisis of masculinity seems to me a theme of the show.
Normcore: Fashion for Those Who Realize They’re One in 7 Billion
aka fashion eats itself (again)
What's happened to TextDrive?
It’s shutting down in ten days. Too bad. (see here and here for the history)
Toronto’s Ethnic Buffet
Hits a few personal weak spots: Torontonian pride, Americans talking about Canada, and food.
Soon, Our Robot Coffee Baristas Will Only Brew Certain Brands
We joke about the “robot coffee” machine at work that tastes like ass but is free. Already the robot coffee machines are turning on their masters?

Great piece. I am not sure why Dougie’s antics don’t make me pull my hair out with despair (desphair?). I think the prospect of eight more months of this make me absolutely delighted – the Fords are comedy gold.

The internet is fucked
The Verge on the state of the (US) net: (via)
So there’s the entire problem, expressed in four simple ideas: the internet is a utility, there is zero meaningful competition to provide that utility to Americans, all internet providers should be treated equally, and the FCC is doing a miserably ineffective job.
All the points are right, but he doesn’t even get into the NSA issues. Fear of US government spying is making a lot of people wary of storing data in US servers, and in the cloud in general.
Did Councillor Doug Ford lose valuable voter data from 2010 Toronto mayoral election?
Basically, Rob Ford’s 2010 campaign mastermind Kouvalis is now running John Tory’s mayoral bid. Doug Ford, who is Rob’s new campaign “mastermind”, may have lost all the voter data that Kouvalis amassed. I look forward to plenty more bumbling Ford campaign antics now that the lunatics are firmly in charge of the asylum.
Mississauga's New Brand
I like the logo. The capitalization scheme is a bit confused though: capital M is necessary for the whole logo to work, but a lot of the other type treatments use all lowercase.
