He yells at her to stop, she revs her engine!!

Posted on August 28th, 2009 9 great comments. Room for one more!

The Copper people are doing their thing in the neighbourhood again:

copper's gonna git you!

Exciting scene with some woman getting pulled over by the cop. As he gets out of the squad car, she continues to roll. He yells at her to stop, she revs her engine!! … well, I won’t spoil it for you. But as I write this, the wind is picking up, possibly in anticipation of the interesting weather planned for tonight. Those prop trash bags on the lawn are keeping more than one crew member entertained; they’re filled with styrofoam or something similarly light, and they’re not tethered to anything. Flying, Valkyrian garbage! It’s happening all over again!

:D Not really.

The only things flying around the city these days are rain, knives and performers.

Dear reader, more artisans from Buskerfest (loud link!) for your entertainment. And, ah, if you wanna show your appreciation with a small donation, that would be great. Preferably bills:

like a giant tom hanks

Remember the Australian-region guy? He does actually do something. But not before my foot had fallen asleep waiting for him to stop flapping his gums and do it already:

alright ... he *did* have fire

And then this guy did a variation on it. He actually took the pains to point out that, unlike that guy over there, he wasn’t being supported by anyone:

yeah, i said that guy over there

And finally, the item that I so egregiously omitted yesterday, the human beatbox video. To retain the live spirit of the performance, and because I’m lazy, I didn’t edit the video at all.

Doesn’t that just take the cake?

Well, I’m all buskered out. But those folks are doing it all weekend. And why not? After this it’s back to Dundas Square or subway stations, so they might as well rake in as much as they can.

God’s speed, little buskers.

And to you, dear reader, a fair and pleasant weekend.

    Do these guys make that much money doing this all weekend? If so, I may need to change vocations.

    The few times I've spoken to buskers, Inge, I've been informed that they do actually make pretty good scratch. I've heard anywhere between $150 to $250 a day! I've given it some good, honest thought myself :)

    Looks like my Torontonian Buddies are having fun..we had a murder just locally at our Mcdonald's the other day which wasn't nice because it is usually very nice and quiet here in Richmond ..

    So sorry to hear about the knifing, yanjiaren; seems like such an awful way to go. In Toronto, we gun down our victims in a civilized manner.

    Thanks Laurence! I think your kids are very lucky to have such a media-savvy parent.thomas sabo charm This kind of media-coaching by parents is the modern equivalent of “don’t sit so close to the TV!” My own kids aren’t there yet, but when thomas sabothey get there I anticipate taking a lot of the same steps.
