|Goin' for the Yankees or the Reste this year?|
Got Gingham in the Underground:
|"OK. Win, you're looking great, keep going... Ignore that weird dood beside you."|
|"Ok. Take Three Hundred and Fifty-seven."|
Last week in the underground city of Montreal we caught a rock vid being filmed. Some happnin' big star singing his song, echoing down the halls, we thought it was a busker but then noticed the film crew. Boy did we give them a weird-out as we followed them in sync, camera not pointed at the famous-here-in-Quebec superstar song writer, but the cameraman. Best crew in town. They decided we'd messed up the take so had to re-shoot. Not Got Gingham's problem! That's show bizness, guys.
Street Art in Montreal's Got Gingham!
Here is a doc by some Concordia University students which follows some of the Street Art occurring in Montreal. It's not till the 8:48 mark you will see the Gingham, but it is never-the-less a charming look at the streets of Mile-End and has interviews with several local characters of renown who have made some great contributions to the life in the streets of the city. That somebody can be a PhD candidate in the study of "Yarn Bombing" proves that one day Gingham is surely going to find its way into the great marble halls of academe. So far, as this vid proves, we've been able to operate on stealth. One day we'll be getting an entire faculty devoted to us. We figure an honourary Ph.D might help to kick things off, but then that would mean all of a sudden we've joined the dreaded 'Establishment,' and there so goes all our street-cred in three painted letters.
How much is that Gingham in the Window?
|Some of you might figure out where this is by the reflection in the window. It might still be there tomorrow. Otherwise, forget about it.|
Chris Ellul--drummer for THE HEAVY'S GOT GINGHAM!
|Proof it wasn't a one-off rim shot.|
|He don't wanna work, just wears his Gingham all day.|
Valentines Day Special!
Our friends over at Go Gingham [see here] are going all out this Valentines. Or is that All-in? Who knows. As long as Gingham is in the air or out in the open...
|This Valentines, don't let us down, take to the streets and proclaim your love for Gingham.|
|Four Graf writers can't all be wrong at the same time.|
