    Raptors Preseason and Season tickets 08/09

    While we're on the topic, anyone here know a good way to get a hold of discounted Raptors tickets? I want to take my Dad to a game sometime in December or January.

    Transformation AGO (5s, Gehry) COMPLETE

    Honesty is just one of many aesthetic criteria. Imagine someone takes a dump on the Louvre and calls it "an addition". I say it looks like they took a dump on the Louvre. They reply: "Well, I did take a dump on the Louvre, what's wrong with it looking like I took a dump?" Of course the...

    Transformation AGO (5s, Gehry) COMPLETE

    The visor is kind of cool, on its own. But rarely have I seen an architectural element that seems so tacked on. If I were an aesthetically sensitive Godzilla tromping down Dundas, my first instinct would be to rip that thing off. Pretty much every new exterior element here feels tacked on...

    Anyone sold their own home? Or used a flat-fee MLS service?

    Here's an example of one package I found: It's $500 but also 1% at closing, so not a true flat-fee, I guess. I'm also assuming that if a buyer's agent is involved, you'd have to pay them (2% or thereabouts?). In which case it...

    Anyone sold their own home? Or used a flat-fee MLS service?

    Hello, longtime lurker, first-time poster. My wife and I are probably selling our upper-beaches bungalow in spring 2009, and we recoil at the thought of paying 5-7% commission. On the other hand, there is some comfort in handing the whole process over to an agent; furthermore when you sell...
