New Lana Del Rey from a few days ago.
I have a somewhat over obsessive love for tea. I drink it everyday at least 3 times a day, probably have 20 different kinds in my house at a time, and still feel a compulsive need to add on to this collection. I am a fan of David’s Teas I have to say, which for those of you who don’t know, is a chain of tea stores in Canada which originated from Montreal I believe. Anyways, you can basically walk into any David’s Teas and you will find a huge selection of loose leaf teas from which to choose from and buy them based on weight. Last night however, my roommate (who is just as tea obsessed as I am) showed me this website she found where you can design your own tea for a very reasonable price. I have posted the link below for any of you tea lovers out there who are interested!
Quanche is a Toronto based rapper, native to the Vaughn and Oakwood area. This video, for his song Daily Planner, came out a few months back and was directed by a fellow Toronto native, Matt Beecraft. Quanche is a talented young rapper who dedicates much of his content to addressing problems of drugs and violence in the Toronto youth community. I’be posted the video below as well as a link to his latest mix tape, the Parish Boy’s Progress.
As you may already be aware, back in the spring Flare Magazine teamed up with Also Shoes to create a limited edition wedge sandal. This shoe was extremely poplar, and sold out in a vey short time.

This film, presented by Quentin Tarantino but directed by The RZA, will be coming out in a few weeks on November 2nd. From the trailer I’m not sure exactly what to expect in terms of directing talent, but this movie does include a few of my favourite things. First of all, Tarantino is one of my all time favourite directors, so I’m hoping his influence on the movie will be a plus. Second, being a fan of all things Wu-Tang Clan, the fact that this movie has original songs by many members of the crew will hopefully also add to the greatness of this movie. So far the soundtrack that has been released includes tracks by The Black Keys, Kanye West and Method Man to name a few. Check out the trailer below :)
