August 30th, 2009

I am leaving Toronto as we speak. Have been here since January 5th, probably the longest time I’ve spent in one country since 2004.

August 30th, 2009

It’s been a great time, but I must now bid farwell to TO.

So long all at The Bloor, Bay Street Video, Dark Horse Espresso, The Swan, Sonic Boom, The Beguiling, Fresh (I will miss Rocket Fuel most of all), Vintage Video, Rotate This!, Kensington Market, The Mod Club, the AMC, Scotiabank, and Varsity (I saw a lot of movies there), Jamie Kennedy’s, The Annexe, Second Cup, Tim Hortons, Tati Bistro, The Drake, Saving Grace, The Black Hoof, Sweaty Betty’s, Sneaky Dees, The Dakota, The Beaconsfield, Insomnia, Nami, Pizza Pizza on Bloor and Bathurst, Eye Weekly, Now, Phant-a-Scope, Eyesore Video, Collision, Lee’s Palace, the Rabba on Front and of course, poutine.

And a big shout to all the cast, the ridiculously hard working crew and all the extras, who no doubt got bored while standing around looking bored.

    Aw flashback shot!
    Yeah, your eyes definitely look more tired now, Edgar.
    But you’re still in amazing shape considering everything you’ve done this year!
    Travel safe.

    Fresh is indeed one of my favourite places. Too bad you can’t stay for TIFF. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    Did you not go to that I Feel Like Crepe place? That sounded interesting.

    Have a safe trip. If you’re coming back to LA, you can join us and breathe in all of the lovely smoke and ash. Mmm. But aside from that, I hope you get more of a break. Your eyes pretty much say that you need one.

    So are you off to L.A. to supervise visual effects and the score and do the editing and all that?
    Enjoy your flight (a great place to catch up on your comics reading) and good luck on all the post production stuff!!!
