Do we in fact have our heritage sign? How much of it is original afterall.
Truth is both the rendering and the reality are nothing worth looking at. It looks cool when it is hang low on a small building because of the dramatic effects, but on top of a tall building, it is just boring no matter how you put it.
The historic Sam the Record Man sign in the historic movie Half Baked:
and seen again here in the reflection of Pizza Pizza:
It's sad to see how disrespectfully the "preserved' the sign.
I was just asked to interview for Newstalk 1010 to comment on the Sam The Record Man sign. Just finished recording and I held nothing back and let Ryerson know that they screwed up and this needs to be fixed. My interview airs on Saturday night on Newstalk1010 between 8 and 9pm.
Half baked about sums this effort up.
Can't believe this is the the finished product. Passed by this morning and thought it was still u/c until I read this thread.
Ryerson's sure killed the proverbial diabetic horse on this one.
Not sure if this is good news or if the city is just looking for a way to best spin this but the scheduled "unveiling" of the sign was cancelled. It was supposed to have been on Monday. I doubt the Mayor and Councillor Wong-Tam want to cut the ribbon on this embarrassment.
I called Wong-Tam's office (and John Tory's) today but still waiting for a call back.
I walked by it this afternoon. The sign might as well be invisible.
The little lights aren't twinklin'
I know, Art. And thanks for noticing.
Give em hell MM! Someone at Ry High should lose their head over this.
They don't even have it on at night?
It's going to need an upgrade.
I assume they were going to turn them on at the now cancelled unveiling.
