Montreal has a reputation. It’s sin city. It’s the party girl that stays up all night with smeared mascara and perfect hair. It’s European without being European at all. It’s corrupt but you love the corruption. It’s Canada’s Gotham and it’s run by mafia and motorcycle gangs. And I love living here. For its grimness Montreal as a city waxes pure elegance in its writers, artists, and people. There’s no way to narrow down the style and energy, Ok yeah, there’s total eurotrash whatever, but people don’t wear sweatpants or sneakers here. There is a sense of pride in putting yourself together because everyone on the street is going to openly check you out (which is totally creepy so wear sunglasses).
For my first instalment of “Shit 30-year-olds Do”, I decided to start with a milestone that, along with taking up knitting or getting a subscription to Canadian Living, has long been associated with being old and lame: starting a Book Club!
There are few places in the city that are one-stop shopping for denim and casual wear in Toronto; Over the Rainbow is the most expensive, Holt Renfrew is the most extensive, and Lavish & Squalor is the best all-round. We’ve been getting our winter and spring denim at Lavish & Squalor for years. It’s the only place where you can get boutique service with a wide selection of denim. Cause if you’re over 22, then lord knows, H+M and other big box stores are out of the question for denim.

DJ’s come and go much like pop-stars and it’s rare that any have a shelf-life of more than 2 years. Tiga is an exception to the rule, starting as one of the most instrumental forces in the Montreal rave scene in the early 90′s and releasing classics like Sunglasses at Night and collaborating with electronic legends like James Murphy and the XX. He’s currently embarking on the Sonar Tour, along with Azari & III and Die Antwoord and more, and is set to release, Tiga Non-Stop, a 28 track mix LP on November 13th. He’ll be in Toronto tomorrow at the Sound Academy, get your tickets here.

Gary Pullin, former art director of Rue Morgue, and one of the founding members of the Rue Morgue empire (Magazine, Festival of Fear etc) was nice enough to take our 20Qs on this all Hallows Eve. His schedule tonight will include: I’ll be checking out TIFF’s Living Dread: The Cinema of George A. Romero film series, which opens with his awesome anthology Creepshow tonight and runs until November 4, at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Romero is curating and introducing many of his films including Martin, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead and Michael Powell’s cult classic Peeping Tom. Gary even did the silk-screened poster, which is available at the event tonight.
Being 150% queer, I tend to get very happy around two times of the year. Pride, obviously, and Halloween. As Pride is often thought of as Gay Xmas, then it’s time we Queerio’s had a New Year’s Eve. For Oct 31st 2012, I believe we can rename and re think how we celebrate this wonderful date. I have two Twitter hashtags for you to follow: #GAYNYE and #GAYNYEToronto.
Over 60 world class female chefs from the city of Toronto came out to prepare sweet, savory and sinful dishes for the thousands of foodies who attend the event. The annual Eat to the Beat event takes place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and helps attendees see that no one will ever face breast cancer alone.
Martha Wainwright has a new album out, Come Home To Mama, and she’s touring the great Canadian North in support of it (Toronto tour date is November 8th at the Great Hall). She was nice enough to answer the 20 Qs just before she heads out.
