Fads™ GOES TO CANADA

This is pretty big news. I’ve thought about doing video interviews for a while  now but I never really had the time to set up for them or anything remotely close to that back in New York. Now i’m in Ottawa with fam for the holidays and, get this, about to go see MORE fam in the  city of TORONTO. B.t.dubs people, T.O.R.O.N.T.O. stands for “super-sick-video-making-city.”

I found out I was headed to Toronto and I flipped a total shit because on TOP of the fact that with all the free time the holiday season has afforded me I am (at least) able to TRY to crank out a couple of videos, transcribe some interviews, and maybe work on some art, Toronto could be like a “guest-backdrop” for all of my effort, what with its super cool trendishly hip, “never quite on par with NY”, scene I’ve been reading so much about lately.

Likewise I have decided not to cover Ottawa because, besides the magnificence of the  architectural detail of the Canadian parliament building, there’s actually nothing to cover as far as I know (hipster-core of Ottawa, hit me up if you think otherwise, until then, I hear ottawa is the heroin capitol of Canada too, stay clean if you know what I mean). 

Speaking of all of this coverage, exactly what ill be “covering” in Torontonia is somewhat mostly fashion related. Because its the part of worldwide fashion I know the most about (and thats not saying much btw), ill be looking to review the entire streetwear scene of Toronto through intensive examinations of six stores: five that are super-streetwear oriented and one that claims to be a skateshop. Check the list and wish me luck.

-ADRIFT SKATESHOP

-GOODFOOT TORONTO

-LIVESTOCK TORONTO

-NOMAD

-RANSOM

-STUSSY TORONTO

So in reality I haven’t really contacted the stores yet to check and see whether or not they’ll be receptive to THIS guy with a miniDV cam in tow trying to take pictures with his fucking cellphone, BUT I think ill wing it on that tip. 

What I WONT be winging is the conversatory content Ill be filling my video with because I really don’t want to be stranded in a store looking stupid with that camcorder like a japanese tourist in soho pointing at kidrobot. No hate to tourists or kidrobot btw.

So now im rehearsing the parts

and plotting a course through the jungle of Toronto’s back… allies I guess

UPDATE LIKE NO OTHER

Okay, okay, Ottawa deserves credit where credit is due before we go on giving Toronto too many props well also go to
