Wouldn’t This Be Funny…

KehlaniIf this website just came back, out of nowhere? Wouldn’t that just be funny.

Maybe it will…for now, enjoy this Kehlani track I’ve been enjoying literally all morning. Assisted by Chance the Rapper.

The End…For Now

Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve put some serious effort into this. I do apologize for not making one of these earlier.

I have been plotting for something bigger than Fresh Out The Oven.
In the meantime while I try to find that for myself I have found exactly that as an intern at a great movement in the city I love. I have been helping at 1LOVETO, a site that is much more than a few posts on the internet. Check us out there. We really do some great things for the city and it’s people. And we throw some parties you should be at.
That Salad King rant was definitely me, and there will be plenty more in the coming months.

There is a future for FOTO. I mentioned I wanted more and we finally have that on the horizon. The idea is all there. I can’t wait to introduce you to some of the people I have working on the site with me. But it’s coming. It will be so much more, but I really encourage you guys to follow me on twitter for now. It will be worth it. I will tell you exactly when you can bookmark the Music section…

If you really want me to get all sappy…

Rogers Cup – Presented by National Bank

The Rogers Cup is back at Rexall Centre this summer!

This year it is the men’s turn in Toronto as the likes of Nadal, Djokvic, Federer and more take to Centre Court at York University for some ATP Tour Tennis. For those who follow, you know that serious US Open Series points are at stake here. For those who don’t, you can familiarize yourselves at the Official Olympus US Open Series web-site.

The Rogers Cup has become an event that top ranked players mark as a “must enter” on their calendars. The beautiful new Rexall Centre at York University is one of the top tennis facilities in Canada, and it has become a great venue for both athletes and spectators alike.
Tickets are available now, but the later sessions are selling out fast. Get your tickets now and don’t miss out on this opportunity to take in some world class athletes right in our very own 1LOVETO.

Congratulations Blackhawks!

Picture of the team underneath. Exactly how they must all be feeling above.
I have to say, while I enjoy the NBA more than the NHL (shoot me, I’m not that Canadian after all) the NHL advertising team has done a much better job these playoffs than the NBA’s team. That remixing the players and coaches words needs to stop. Yesterday.

Asher Roth All Access

Asher Roth being chosen as a Freshmen didn’t come as much of a surprise to me after that Drama/Cannon hosted mixtape introduced him to the world. His album didn’t disappoint as a debut either, especially for a white kid from the suburbs. And while it still remains to be seen if Asher will be a mainstay in Hip Hop or not, it is a sure thing that for right now Asher Roth is enjoying his moment.
This is the trailer for footage taken during his Great Hangover Tour. Aimed at giving fans a full view of what Asher and his team experience on tour, the trailer looks like something you may want to keep up with.

Check it out over at Asher Roth’s new web-site
*hint: it’s in the “Blog” section

Big Sean x More Free GOODness

I have to say that when I was first seeing all the Best of Both Offices videos featuring Big Sean I wasn’t sure about Big Sean. I guess I am just a skeptic until you prove me wrong in most cases.
It didn’t take Big Sean long. Finally Famous v1, v2 and I’m sure the upcoming v3 have propelled him into the role as one of my favourite new acts to follow. While it’s unfortunate for him that his Drake collaboration leaked a while back, it’s great for the fans. If that is what we can expect from Finally Famous (the one you can spend money on), then I’m excited.
For now, enjoy another lyrical bombardment of this Don Cannon track. “He called Shotty!”

Absolut Concert Series x Jay-Z

For those who know me, and those who don’t, you know I’m a huge fan of Jay-Z. The banner background for the site has been words making up the likeness of the man for as long as I can remember. As such, this is the perfect video for me to pour 15 minutes of my time into.
A while back, Absolut teamed up with Madison Square Garden to present a concert series (that is still ongoing today). One of those special concerts was Jay-Z’s performance at the Garden, centred around the Blueprint 3 release. The video gives you some more insight into the creative process of putting together a concert, and gives you a SLIGHTLY deeper look into the man that is Shawn Carter.

Be sure to check their official page out on Facebook.
