The Auto Show – MTCC Toronto

Leave it to me to find the most feminine thing @ the auto show… seat belt purses!

Yesterday, I spent my afternoon at the Canadian International Auto Show. To everyone’s shock & dismay it was indeed my first time, but not to be my last… it was like motivational window shopping… “I want that one, and that one, and THAT one”! Thought I’d share some of what I saw and send a lil motivation your way!

So Pretty

Love, love, LOVE! Want!

Hi all, it is now Chinese Lunar New year in Hong Kong and everybody is busy asking for red pockets(‘Lai See’ with money inside) from the married couples!!! I will have to work extra hard this year as it will be my last year to do so!!!! Just can’t miss the chance(as you can’t ask for red pocket anymore after you get married:), but you will have to give instead!!!!:(

Meet SMVC!

“When most kids their age were riffling through college textbooks and figuring out the path of least resistance towards some sort of stable income, these small town boys were riffling through their parents record collections, studying the messy emotion-fuelled rock of Pavement and the fuzzy post-rock discography of Sonic Youth, dreaming of ways they could marry it all together”

Sandman Viper Command are Audio Blood’s newest addition to their already AWESOME roster of artists; four best friends Rob Janson, Aaron Harvey, Dan Reardon, and Matt Meyer make up this ambitiously named group. In the beginning, they locked themselves up for days in their parents’ basements practicing and refining demos; only emerging when they had stumbled upon the most perfect blend of garage pop/guitar fuzz rock Canada has heard in a long time.

They just wrapped up a busy year, playing alongside the likes of Holy Fuck (I LOVE THEM), The Arkells and more. During this time they were also recording their debut album Everybody See This, which will be released on March 2nd. 
 Everybody See This has lots of variety, yet never sacrifices the consistency of the full release…”Strawberry Quick” is like a parasite, vague enough for any heartless teenager to fill in the gaps with their own lost stories of lust-filled nights….”Oh Yeah, It’s Fusion” is a right proper sing-a-long while balancing on the edge of being nerdy art rock and an angular ambient guitar jam.”

CHECK OUT the promo video for “Yo Bobcat”:

UPCOMING SHOWS:

Feb. 2 @ C’est What, TORONTO
Feb. 9 @ C’est What, TORONTO
Feb. 16 @ C’est What, TORONTO
Feb. 23 @ C’est What, TORONTO
Feb. 27 @ The Mansion, KINGSTON (w. Wax Mannequin)
Mar. 11 @ El Mocambo, TORONTO (Audio Blood CMW showcase)
Make sure you go out and show them some love!
Check out their myspace and don’t forget to…
Follow them on twitter!
Did you know? Sandman Viper Command isolated themselves for six months in a barn on the outskirts of Hamilton, Ontario with producer Dave King; recording intensely to ensure Everybody See This captured the raw, frenetic qualities of the band, and achieving that lofty childhood goal of creating a sound they can call their own.
muah!

Hi everyone, my name is Mikaela and I’ll be guest writing on heydoyou for a little while. I have my own blog http://framboisefashion.blogspot.com where I write about fashion and cool buys. My everyday life takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, and it is here i live, love and laugh. My major interests have always been fashion and music, and I hope to one day become a fashion designer. I have a strange fear of mosquitoes and I always eat around peas. Besides that I just want to say, that I’m looking forward to writing for you here, and hope you will enjoy it as well!

Event Round Up!!

I’ve been a busy busy Bee these past couple weeks! Between work, figuring school out, hitting up events, editing pictures, and my PSYCHO laptop; it’s been almost impossible for me to come on here.
But let me tell you, it’s been an exciting week! Especially this week!
As you know this past week was Toronto International Design Week; and my oh my, my heart melted several times during all my visits to the MANY different exhibits.

“Fashion Forward starts with Toronto couture, featuring elegant stalwarts alongside more radical designers. From there, it goes on to explore how this community’s trademark inventiveness inspires new forms of social responsiveness by highlighting sustainability, wearable tech and special needs.” all of this equals AMAZING! lol

IDS 10 Opening Night was AMAZING! pause, the whole IDS 10 event was AAAAAMAZING! It took everything in me to drool in public over the many beautiful pieces of furniture and exhibits that I came across!
Soooo many exhibitors, and ridiculous (in a good way) exhibitions. Local, International and even Student designers were present to excite us with creative pieces and mind blowing displays! Thank you ever so much to the organizers for inviting me, I had an AWESOME time.

CUTMR 2010. Oh man I don’t know where to begin with this one.  All I can say is that I was blown away by some of the things coming out of these genius minds! Phoebe, you guys made CUTMR 2010, one of my most memorable moments for 2010, and it’s only January! I want to thank you all for giving me something or rather things that touched my heart; I will treasure them and you guys forever!
Fashion Foward: Wearable Technology: So many great things going on around your city. You all need to get familiar!

Body and Objects, what can I say… it was just so AWESOME!

Kidets Launch: good people, great vibes, and an interesting story involving myself and a glass of red wine! *blushes* lol

IDS Closing Night… drool-worthy EVERYTHING!
check out all the albums for more juicy pics!
muah!

HeyDoYou x Body + Object Opening Night

“The body is perhaps today’s most ubiquitous cultural object, especially in its use to announce identity through the ever-changing landscape of apparel.”

Karina and I

As you can see I seem to have fallen completely in love this season. Maybe it has something to do with it being so cold outside, so I have no interest in partying lol. Instead, I wanna go somewhere and observe exhibitions, see people bring some ish to life. Not the same ol bottle poppin nonsese, sooooo 2008!

Any I was prvilidged to attend the opening reception of the Body and Object opening night, and was blown away by everything I saw… I know, I know, but I love art, and I LOVE LOVE seeing how people express themselves artistically 🙂

gimme gimme gimme! these are Marina Dempster’s creations!
The exhibition featured the work of 18 artists who explored the relationship between the body and the many forms in which it can ornament, present, and represent itself. You KNOW I was ALL OVER this!
The Ontario Crafts Council was a participant in this years TIDF (Toronto International Design Festival), and we were more than delighted to view their work! What an amazing idea!

supporting their city!
you’ll never look at gum the same again… dresses can come outta empty gum packets!
“Craft finds its place in this process of disclosure with work designed to adorn, protect, and even introspectively examine the body. Body + Object offers work addressing the real as well as thematic presence of the body, where traditional craft media appear in new forms and use style as a means to investigation.”
chit chattin’
“The H1N1 Bag”
Karina’s too funny! “The Gut Bag”

The exhibition includes the work of Amanda McCavour & Silke Stadtmuller / Andrea Graham / Annie Thompson / Bebhinn Jennings / Dandi Maestre / David Dunkley / Gillian Batcher / Jessica Beauchemin / Karina Bergmans / Lois Schklar / Marina Dempster / Norah Deacon, Adrian Parks & Yvonne Ng / Tanya Lyons / and Tara Bursey.
