i just started watching Mad Men which makes this guy’s post of vintage cigarette ads even more interesting and topical to me.

I stole this picture from this blog post, that URB magazine posted on twitter. Toronto could use some work like this to improve our boring ass streets and public works buildings and fixtures.

always make my night.

this guy in particular was impressive. his mood swings went from a violent, instigating vibe all the way over to a sad, confused and lonely one.

he was definitely eating both paper and cigarettes in front of us and may have taken a couple swings at me while i tried to take this picture.

after a fight almost broke out between dennis and some hipster politically correct emo herb over us “taunting” this poor old man, we all stepped back and realized that he’s probably somebody’s dad and that in itself is pretty sad and even if he is stumbling in our face talking shit, perhaps we should let him be.
