soft copy

Paul's band Soft Copy has a new album coming out and it got a really nice mention on John Sakamoto's Anti-Hit List in today's Toronto Star! You can read it here.

In other news, I went to Shop for the Cause 2 and got a super cute dress by Damzels in this Dress, which is a local design company. They have a fun shop in Leslieville. It was a really good deal...$12.50. I also put a bid on something in the silent auction and I've got my fingers and toes crossed that I was the winning bid! I don't want to jinx anything so win or lose, I'll reveal it later. If nothing else I drove the bidding up to a higher amount which is good news all around really since the money is going to such a good cause.

That is all. Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

emergency fund raiser for haiti

Toronto folks:
Nathalie-Roze is organizing a sale to raise money for Haiti. I've donated some ratgirl merch and a ton of other local designers have donated items as well. I hope you'll come out, show your support and take home some fun goodies too. When Nathalie-Roze organized the first Shop for the Cause after the tsunami in 2005, $16,000 was raised!

The details:
Shop for the Cause 2
