Say what?!

Trust us, Tilapia's good.

How much of a Hiptard are you?

In response to our popular write up on the Stuff White People Like blog [read me], here at Tattoo we've devised a quiz to determine the Hiptard status of all of our loyal readers. And from Leslieville to the 'Burbs, we decipher which area of Toronto you'd end up in based on your Hiptard Status.

Happy Wednesdays

If Tuesday is meant to be the most productive day of the week, Wednesday should be the day that provides you with enough inspiration to get you through until Friday...

Ladies! :

But in all seriousness, for this particular Wednesday I'm going to pass you on to the following concert. In April 2008 Halifax's Buck 65 [hip hop poet extraordinaire, pictured above] teamed up with Symphony Nova Scotia to produce an incredible concert set at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Conducted by Dinuk Wijeratne, the concert features Buck 65's vocal and turntable expertise mixed in with Norman Adams' solo cello, Terry O'Mahoney's solo percussion and Symphony Nova Scotia's orchestral talent.
Flagged as one of the most innovative musical collaborations this year, stream it anytime by clicking here.

This broadcast is rated E for easy-listening.
