Today I was on my way to Future Shop to just do some isle cruising. I ended up buying a huge paper shredder, which is great for protecting against identity theft, fraud etc. However on the way there I looked up at the sky and found that within a very close range the sky was half dark and half sunny. I haven’t seen a place other than Montreal where this happens often. It is a bit hard to see in the picture, so click on it to see it larger might help a bit!

Today I felt like going to Westmount Park to do a bit of writing, and chill out in the beautiful weather. The weather was a bit chilly, but very sunny. A great start for the summer. Afterwards I went on a quest to find squirrels. I found one and got pretty close to it after a bit of trying.

This was the second day of shooting in Downtown Montreal, Its for the New Phantom Legacy Movie. They are portraying New York in the movie Because they had NYPD Cars (The Day before they had New York Yellow Cabs) and The Audi S6 had New York License Plates (RA0 7671).

P.S. for the people who don’t know why they don’t film in New York, it’s because it Costs much more to close a street in New York than it does in Toronto Or Montreal. A lot of films that are suppose to be portraying New York are actually shot in Toronto Or Montreal. Off the Top of my head I know Half baked (Starring Dave Chapelle Was shot on Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto (the scene with the dying horse)

This is the view of Lake Ontario From the via rail train going from Toronto to Montreal on Sunday May 17th 2009. The lake is beautiful, but the weather made it even more special. For me this is the best part of the train ride!

A protest on May 13th 2009 for the violence happening in Sri Lanka. This was shot on Dundas and Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto. I Truly hate people killing others for any reason. I did not know about what is happening until recently, so this is my way of helping out by spreading awareness. I am not siding with anyone as I have the faintest clue about what is actually happening, however I do know that it needs to stop EVERYWHERE in the world!

On our way to Toronto we saw this. Before I had a chance to start recording sparks erupted from the truck. I think someone burnt it for insurance. Anyways it’s not everyday you see a burning car. When we passed it we could feel the Heat, it was pretty intense!
