There’s a lot of serious stuff going on, but I’m writing this in a hammock under a pure blue sky, so let’s start light and then get into the heavier bits.
What else did I find? On the leisure side of the ledger (mostly):
- Lillian Tse does an autopsy on some “macawrongs.”
- Lindsay at Edible Woman suffers some doughnut fails before hitting on a doughnut dream come true.
- Kelly-Dawn Aulenbach takes some much-needed time for herself.
- Twyla Campbell salutes the Edmonton Food Fight hosted at Get Cooking.
- Jay Runham quizzes some cosplayers at the Calgary Expo in a highly entertaining fashion.
- Katryna Rae is learning to knit.
- Black Dog Pat is very happy about the big, belated turnover in the Oilers’ head office.
- And Janelle Aker chats with Queer Babe of the Week Heather Zwicker.
On to serious matters (mostly):
- Rylan Kafara and Daniel Johnson contributed a thought-provoking hour to the 2015 Homelessness Marathon.
- Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail shares the video trailer she and Nicole Beart have done for Ghosts of Camsell.
- The Walrus Talks Aboriginal City gives Mack Male a lot to think about, and write about.
- Mack was on fire this week, also contributing a post on placemaking and a recap of the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts.
- The Edmonton Arts Council shares Mary Pinkoski’s poem, My City is a Body, performed at the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts. (And Sarah Chan lets us peek behind the scenes.)
- Dana DiTomaso reveals what she’s learned from Kick Point’s first 100 newsletters.
- Dave Cournoyer has been a must-read all election, and his piece after the debate is no exception.
- Michael Ross maps the most efficient campaign routes for the leaders based on their key constituencies.
