I am still trying to understand the phenomenon of K-Pop. I am amazed at the popularity of the group (2NE1) and their fan base. What’s more amazing is the fact that some of the younger generation seemed to not understand how I could “not know what K-Pop is”? Well I definitely know what it is now, after being formally “trained and quizzed on the music of K-Pop”. However, in case you don’t know, below is a link to one of the most popular bands in Asia.

What comment can I offer on the lack of care for rental homes in York Region? What’s sad is home owners who buy rental properties, in fairly nice neighbourhoods, are turning them into rental ghettos. It’s said to see how individuals can come into a area and treat it with no care. Now there are some basic considerations to home ownership, but one that seems to allude G.T.A residents is the basic decency to keep their neighbourhood clean. Why do you put out garbage and leave it on the curb for a week; knowing it won’t be picked up until next week? Now I know what you are thinking. Maybe they are on vacation right? Wrong! I have seen this time and time again. Homes that are rented out and garbage left on the street; including glass, paint cans, and other items. Unfortunately with an interest rate hovering at the lowest in many years this problem can only get worse; with investors trying to make a quick buck. What’s interesting is this type of issue rarely happens in an area like Leaside, Unionville, Whitby, Oakville, Woodbridge or other portions of the city. Why? Maybe it’s because residents care and want to ensure that their investment remains intact. There is little tolerance for individuals who buy a home and don’t maintain it. It’s sad because I am not sure if this problem will ever be fixed. We take the taxes, but forget the neighbourhood. In some areas people don’t care and I am not even sure why. Maybe they just like it that way?

Rogers Video no more, time to get an Apple TV device
Are you looking to rent a movie? Apple TV makes the process simple and easy. You also get access to a host of other bonus features. With Rogers Video officially putting an end to their video stores it’s now time for you to consider alternatives. Devices like an ATV can help to mitigate the transition.

I’ve had it for 2+ years and have no complaints.

Need For Speed
I am not sure why anyone would want to change the speed limit, but we should just leave things as they are and get police to enforce the current law; ensuring that drivers respect the speed. Making the speed limits faster will simply allow those who break the law go faster. Also, if they are too slow, get off the highway. We should also get our politicians to build more roads like the 407 to ease traffic. If there are people who want to pay let them pay.
Note: I do not even think drivers know that trucks are limited to 100 KM. If you cut off a truck and they hit you, guess who walks away.

Need for Speed in Toronto
Speed limits on Ontario’s highways are too low, according to an Oshawa-based group. Stop100.ca is calling on the provincial government to boost existing maximum limits from the current 100 km/h by as much as 30 km/h.

So what is Toronto becoming?
- MGM wants to build a massive casino on Toronto’s waterfront, preferably turning Ontario Place into a mini Vegas.
- Ashley Madison wants to sponsor Toronto Zoos, as long as they get naming rights
- Dennis Hof looking to expand to Toronto and build a Bunny House
- Giorgio Mammoliti wants to build a dedicated red-light district in Toronto
What is happening to Toronto? It’s simple, Toronto is broke! Year’s ago we talked about the hollowing out of Toronto, forcing families to move to the suburbs, such as Mississauga, Brampton, Markham, Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa and farther. I am not saying that this is the reason. The majority of jobs are still in Toronto, however what will Toronto look like in 20 years? Yesterday Rob Ford said “he is all business”, and he will entertain any business idea. I am not sure if Torontonians would have supported Ford Nation if they knew what the vision was for Toronto. This is definitely not in the same scope of David Miller. As a mayor he seemed to have a different vision for the city. The question is what happened to the debate over these ideas? I am starting to hear rumblings of dissatisfied voters in Scarborough and other parts of the city. Sure, I am not taking stock from a large base, but these are individuals who were stark supporters of Rob Ford coming in to clean house.
Toronto Residents: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?
Toronto Residents: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies over Toronto! The Don river and Lake Ontario boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…Mel Lastman rising back to power! Human cooperation, politicians actually working together… mass hysteria!
So will Toronto become the new promised land?

Recently took a night stroll in the city and a simple picture reminded me about some of the things we have to offer. Yes it’s only the CN Tower but it is one of our most identifiable landmarks. There has been a lot of change in the city, however not all of it is good. I was a bit dismayed that I could almost no longer see the lake from Harbourfront, but I guess that is to be expected is such a large city where land is a premium. I only hope that a serious look and analysis is done on what we have left. I hope we do not rush waterfront development. I’d hate to see future generations left with having to travel to Sandbanks or somewhere else just to get a view of the lake. But I digress, as I was saying land is at a premium in Toronto, isn’t it?
