    On the other hand, I find myself being thankful Trump wasn't taller than it already is.

    I think it goes back further than that... by centuries, if not millennia. There's always young upstarts coming up, ready and willing to knock over the proverbial cultural applecart. Usually it takes...

    LOL

    It could be its own dedicated, fine-grained thread - an excruciating teasing-out of how meat, motion and towers are intricately intertwined. Endless hours of fun await!

    Nope, wasn't there in the cafes of Zurich when Dada busted open. I would have to be almost twice as old as I am to have performed that feat. But there are pictures and surviving artworks from that...

    There you go... sounding like an old fart again!

    I remember Klaus Nomi. His stage presence and demeanour reminded me of the Dadaist movement in Zurich. I guess what goes around comes around.

    I have to say, I find the veneration being paid to the CN tower in this thread to be rather astonishing. It's like it's some ancient golden obelisk created to commemorate the gods. I love the...

    Fake setbacks or no, I think it looks great in the renderings. Sleek and elegant. The devil will be in the details, once it starts going up and the cladding begins.

    Yeah, 777 Kipling, a former glass factory, is also huge... both features and series operate out of there. It's been a going concern for quite a few years now. That and Pinewood are probably the...

    I was never into the arcades but I sure remember the massive popularity of them. And yes - two of the things I remember most vividly about Yonge in the late 70s was the showy car culture and the drug...

    Kind of funny, that expression. Not like it's going to say "Rural condos for urban living." Spectacularly empty slogan! Hope the place is finessed with more imagination than the marketing.

    Wow, a cool yellow imposed over a monotone photograph. What an unflattering way to depict the project. Looks putrid.

    Wonder how tall the tower component is intended to be.

    It's nice to know that folks on this board are giving their due consideration to timely wad-blowing. Bodes well for all future discourse.

    Dylan an iconoclast? Didn't he have his own 'coming to Jesus' moment? That totally ruins his cred. I'm sure that's something most of his liberal fan base would like to ignore.
