Space Invaders
7:30PM tonight at the the Drake Underground, for one night only, Spacing Magazine presents a collection of short films about public space in Toronto, called Public Space Invaders. Come one, come all, and see banjos,oil drums, lo-fi sci-fi, parachutists, the irresistible Measha Brueggergosman in the buff (no wait...that's on the bluff - the Scarborough Bluffs that is) and much much more!

Although sites such as Reading Toronto encourage posting video and films, the idea of a vlog about Toronto public spaces hasn't really caught on - unless there's one I don't know of. Perhaps it's simply the time involved in making a video entry and posting it that makes it less viable - or maybe we're just tired of the amateur talking heads that YouTube and MySpace has spawned. In the meantime, while we're all waiting for the revolution to be televised, head over to the Drake for what should be a lively and entertaining evening. Why, dear reader, your humble author has a collection of speculative ads created for Reading Toronto included in tonight's program. That alone is worth the price of admission! ($10 before the films are shown or $5 after). Okay, perhaps 90 seconds of grainy ads aren't worth $10 but the other great short films on the list will more than take up the slack. See a more comprehensive list of films to be shown here.

In the words of a Kaj Pindal t-shirt - "Life is too short for long films".
