@ValAssenza I didn't go. Thing is, condos downtown on Queen haven't been good: empty storefronts, rent increase on former indie stores.
10:17 AM - 5 May 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

@ValAssenza & condos don't necessarily bring diversity but do bring boxstore/mall outlet type places. & yes, we're Toronto but The Beach/es.
10:20 AM - 5 May 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

@ValAssenza we're very diverse in tourist season & people come because of the look & feel of it being different than downtown yet connected.
10:21 AM - 5 May 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

@ValAssenza over 3 storey condos + not suiting current structures will not bring cheaper rents to Queen storefronts & housing nor diversity.

Yes, enjoyed other actors (hello, Jeremy Renner!) but the scenes between Robert Downey Jr. & Mark Ruffalo were the best for me.

needs less fragments and more structure - in writing as well as life, eh?
3:19 PM - 24 May 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

thinks, but isn't life a compilation of fragments? One could agree to a Beginning, Middle & inevitable End - but one storyline? Not my life.
