Gone but not fogotten.
He was Montreal’s Emperor Norton.
Hope to see a lot of you at the vernissage this Saturday between 4 and 7, if not, please drop by during the month. I feel this is the best show I have done yet in terms of it’s scope of ideas, blending old projects with new and the ever ongoing.
4559 Rue Wellington
Metro de l’Eglise
Vernissage Saturday, April 6, 4-7
Haven’t posted any of these in a while. Time again, I guess.
Saw this band at the Verdun Cultural Center tonight and they are definitely worth checking out!
Was on the cool side but lots of people came out to the lane and had a good time. Many thanks to Francoise Glutnay for organizing this wonderful event!
Meal and coffee for 2 bucks. Nice!
That sort of looks like one of my Verdun Lanes pictures, hey, it IS one of my Verdun Lanes pictures heh heh.
The obligatory sidewalk sale painting at the lane celebration! (wink wink).
The greatest art gallery on the planet! And have to say I was pretty thrilled to have two projects, Turcot and Verdun Lanes, cross paths like this. It just doesn’t happen like this very often, folks! And, I still have about 8 Turcot pictures nicely framed 20×24 inches as you can see here, for sale! http://neath.wordpress.com/2012/07/29/turcot-pictures-for-sale/ Email me for details at neathatturcot (at) yahoo dot com
I think I like the glare.
Love this. That is probably the most successful photograph I have ever made. It functions on so many invisible levels. It truly summarizes the way I felt at Turcot at times, the whole stupid political struggle, the environment - it’s my Don Quixote for the 21 st century. But enough about me…
Merci, Francoise et tout le monde for a really great time!
(Event been moved to Sunday)
Between 1st and 2nd, between Wellington and Verdun. 4.5 blocks from de l’Eglise Metro. 1 -9 pm.
Wellington/Ethel Hickson/Church (Back of old Palace Theatre)
Was walking down 6th and the latest protest was coming towards me. It’s Verdun, get used to it.
I wish we would have had events like this when I went to Saint Willibrord’s but all they ever did was march us down to the church. And that was usually good, pretending to be saying your 20 Hail Mary’s and 10 Our Father’s while passing secrets amongst the other inmates, and away you went!
Bloomsday and a picnic, sounds perfect to me!
Après être sortiEs dans les rues à maintes reprises depuis déjà trois mois, après avoir frappé sur nos casseroles avec constance tous les soirs depuis déjà deux semaines,

le sentiment d’impuissance grandit et la colère reste. Le gouvernement n’a pas écouté nos revendications, pire, il les nie et les ridiculise. Mais le pouvoir est entre nos mains. La démocratie participative, ça commence chez nous. Dans nos quartiers. Nous avons en nous les graines du changement, il suffit de leur laisser la chance de germer dans la discussion et l’entraide. Le mouvement est en branle, de nombreux quartiers montréalais s’organisent en assemblées autonomes pour échanger et passer ensemble à l’étape suivante, celle de la mise en commun des idées et de leur mise en action. Venez nombreuxSES à cette première assemblée des citoyenNEs de Verdun, ce samedi 16 juin à 11h au pavillon au coin de Verdun et Lasalle ( le parc en face de Pro-Actif Santé, voir carte). Amenez vos chaises et des plats à partager; nous ferons un potluck!
After already 3 months of protests in the streets, after having banged on pots and pans with constancy, our feeling of powerlessness grows in us and the anger stays. The government have not listened to our demands; worst, he denies and ridicules them. But the power is in our hands. Participative democracy does begins at home. In our neighborhoods. We have in us the seeds of change, we only need to let them grow in the debate and the friendship. The movement is in motion; numerous Montreal neighborhoods are organising in autonomous assemblies to discuss and get together for the next step, that of sharing ideas and putting them into action. You are all invited to this first assembly of the citizens of Verdun at the pavilion on the corner of Verdun and Lasalle (the park in front of Pro-Actif Santé, see map) on June 16th at 11am. Bring your chairs and food to share; we’ll do a potluck!
Missed a few days but went back last night. Turning into a kind of tam tam in front of the church.
Stubborn little group keeping the flame burning. Interesting to see protesters not jaywalk, though of course there was a cop right there:).
More people tonight, maybe 30 all together. Different ideas coming in to the mix.
Had to miss it Monday, but Tuesday under threat of rain and cool weather left only these two hearty souls and myself to bang our pans for 30 minutes.
