22:00 A Peeking Purrl »justpictureit
photo - A Peeking Purrl

The video below is the answer to last week's song lyric question. It comes from an American sitcom called The Big Bang Theory.

21:44 [MUSIC] Taylor Swift, "Bad Blood" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
I would have blogged last night about Taylor Swift's song "Bad Blood", but sleep interfered with my blogging schedule. No matter: It's still a pop-cultural event, breaking a Vevo record to accumulate 20.1 million views in just 24 hours, and featuring dozens of female stars starring as superhuman crime-fighters, only starting with Selena Gomez as Swift's enemy agent Arsyn. (Facebook's Andrew was quite fond of Lena Dunham as a cigar-chomping agent, while Tumblr has noted that Swift plays with so many images that she appeared both as Jean Grey and as Emma Frost.)



Musically, the song is catchy. Lyrically, it is to the point, if perhaps too much so. Betrayal has occurred, and it's irrevocable.

'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you've done
'Cause, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And, baby, now we got bad blood
Hey


Still, it's a fun song and a compelling video. Writing at The Atlantic, Spencer Kornhuber argued in favour of its subtly feminist imagery.

As a work of audiovisual filmmaking, it’s kind of a flop. With so many co-stars, the editing becomes so hectic that even the barest bones story here is indiscernible and you’re never quite sure who’s doing what. But the point of the video was already made with those posters. This is a fun imagining of an action-movie universe where women rule, a corrective to the Smurfette syndrome that, for example, forces Black Widow into being defined almost entirely by her entire gender while the men of The Avengers enjoy a diverse set of storylines. All the “Bad Blood” women have their own signature powers, gear, and personas—imagine that!

The song “Bad Blood” has widely been interpreted as a middle finger to Katy Perry, the pop singer who Swift often seems to clash with in the press. This interpretation may or may not be true, but in either case it feeds into old stereotypes about women as inherently catty, and into the limiting idea that females must necessarily compete for the top spot in arenas from music to dating. Swift’s been countering that narrative lately by playing up her same-sex friendships in social media, making her Instagram feed into a real-life demonstration of what the point of the Bechdel test is. The video extends that mission to epic levels. But it also features women betraying each other and facing off, as if to say, “We’re humans. Some of us are going to get along, some of us aren’t.” Again, that shouldn’t be a point that needs to be made—except for the fact that society keeps showing that is is.

19:29 [URBAN NOTE] "How Toronto learned to love the patio" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Spacing Toronto's Chris Bateman notes how Toronto ended up embracing the summertime patio. Immigrants and hippies, naturally, started it.

For all the time Torontonians will spend sipping lager and pinot on patios this summer, it would be easy to conclude that the people of this city have always embraced eating and drinking al fresco. Not so. It wasn’t until the 1960s and Yorkville’s counter-cultural era that prudish diners were finally coaxed outdoors en masse.

In the 1920s, outdoor restaurant seating was an impossibly exotic concept confined to the evocative text of vacation adverts. Canadian Pacific’s “Parasol Cruise” to the West Indies promised “black boys diving for pennies” and “Paris-like boulevards [lined with] cool sidewalk cafes.”

The St. Moritz On-The-Park—”New York’s only truly continental cafe—opened its own European-style outdoor seating area in the 1950s, followed by numerous others, prompting the writers of the Globe and Mail‘s “over the teacups” society column to wonder why no-one has tried a similar concept in Toronto. “With all Toronto’s new bohemian eating places, there’s nary a sidewalk cafe in the lot. Wonder why not?”

The Globe‘s assertion that there were no outdoor cafes in Toronto wasn’t entirely correct. Ice cream and milk shake stands offered patrons outdoor seating (even during the winter) as far back as the 1920s, and there are pictures of bundled up men hunching over warm cups of coffee during the frigid winter in the city archives.
19:25 [URBAN NOTE] "Scarborough Civic Centre Gets a Library" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Torontoist's Jamie Bradburn looks at the Scarborough Civic Centre's exciting new library.

Many things strike you at once when you approach the new Scarborough Civic Centre library branch: the angles and curves designed to complement those on the surrounding 1970s civic buildings, designed by architect Raymond Moriyama; the extensive use of Quebec spruce for the beams; the scent of freshly baked cookies drifting in from the Mondelez factory to the northwest.

The finishing touches are still being applied as the Toronto Public Library’s 100th branch prepares for its public opening Wednesday, May 20 at 10 a.m. The building continues a tradition of library service in Scarborough stretching back to the dawn of the 19th century, when pioneers David and Mary Thomson loaned fellow settlers volumes from their private library.

While Moriyama and local officials envisioned a library branch as part of the Scarborough Civic Centre from the site’s construction during the 1970s, no funding was provided. A master plan developed by pre-amalgamation Scarborough in the early 1990s included a new central library, but it wasn’t until 2009 that city councillors approved the current site at 156 Borough Drive. At the time, library planning guidelines indicated that all residents should be within 1.6 kilometres of a library branch, but the closest to the civic centre, Bendale, was nearly 4 kilometres away. Public consultations were held throughout the first half of 2010, and construction began in April 2013.

As designed by LGA Architectural Partners, the branch is filled with natural light. Sightlines allow users to see both across the library and outside to the park across the road. A series of roof planes create a series of swooping layers supporting a green roof. Future exterior landscaping will include a reading garden under a grove of trees to the east and an open civic space to the west.

19:20 [ISL] "Sand disappears from popular Burin Peninsula beach" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
CBC Newfoundland explains why and how all the sand disappeared off a beach on that island. Photos and more are at the link.

Despite concerns from locals, [Norm] Catto, head of the geography department at Memorial University, says the province's beaches are dynamic and constantly changing, and this is just an example of that process.

"This is a natural fluctuation," he says.

"It occurs in response to storm events, particularly storms out of the southwest."

So where did all that sand go? Catto believes it is just off the shore at the bottom of Shoal Cove, and will return over time as conditions change and the winds calm down.

Some residents say they can already see the sand slowly migrating back up the beach, especially at low tide.
19:16 [LINK] "Michigan pastor caught on Grindr told gay teen he was going to hell: report" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The New York Daily News reports on an infuriating event that reminds me that, sometimes, people need to be outed.

The anti-gay Michigan pastor at the center of a Grindr controversy told a young parishioner he would go to hell for being gay.

The discouraging hypocritical words, spoken by Matthew Makela before Queerty discovered his secret gay hook-up profile, nearly drove 17-year-old Tyler Kish to suicide, his mother revealed to WNEM-TV.

Pastor Matthew Makela, of St. John's Lutheran Church and School in Midland, Mich., was caught using the gay hook-up app known as Grindr.

“If he was going to go to hell for being gay, he might as well go to hell by committing suicide,” Jennifer Kish told the TV station.

The teen whose sexual orientation Makela labeled as wrong believed he needed to seek forgiveness for who he was as Makela increasingly vilified homosexuality and marriage equality.

“I needed to repent and hold on to the thought that God could change me,” Tyler recalled feeling, but now he feels sorry for Makela’s plight. “Everything he told me, in a way he was telling himself, too.”
19:11 [LINK] "Macedonia, the New U.S.-Russia Battlefield" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Leonid Bershidsky of Bloomberg View reports on Western-Russian competition in Macedonia, noting that a Russian policy that depends on weak and corrupt government is fragile.

Macedonia is a poor, landlocked Balkan country of about 2 million. To the Kremlin, it's also the newest front in an ideological battle, with the U.S. fomenting regime change to counter Russia's influence. As is often the case, that view is correct to the extent that Russian interests are aligned with those of a corrupt authoritarian ruler.

[. . .]

As for Macedonia, two months after the Turkish Stream plans were broached, the opposition leader Zoran Zaev started publishing secret recordings of officials' conversations. Zaev said the recordings, made by Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski's government as part of a sweeping surveillance operation, were handed to him by a whistleblower. The frank, and sometimes coarse, conversations cover a lot of ground, from violence against political opponents and electoral fraud to the purchase of a Mercedes for Gruevski using the Interior Ministry as cover (the interior minister, who has since resigned, is heard discussing the massage function of the car's rear seats with the chief of intelligence, who has also quit in disgrace).

Macedonians were not amused, and even the country's Albanian minority, which had never made common cause with the Macedonian opposition, joined huge rallies in the capital, Skopje. Last weekend, tens of thousands of protesters turned out in the town center, which Gruevski recently decorated with kitschy neoclassical buildings and statues at a cost the tiny nation could ill afford. On Monday, the prime minister, who has been running Macedonia for almost 10 years, staged his own counter-rally. He called the intercepts "a great lesson" and denounced Zaev as a foreign puppet with a "script writer," and called on supporters to "imagine a prime minister brought to power by foreign services."

To Team Putin, this is familiar ground: Events are following the same course as in Ukraine in 2013 and 2014, when Viktor Yanukovych's corrupt regime was ousted by a popular uprising. The Kremlin believes the U.S. fomented similar revolutions in Georgia in 2003, in Ukraine in 2005 and in Moldova in 2009 and made several less successful attempts to bring down pro-Moscow regimes in former Soviet countries. Waves of regime change such as the Arab Spring also fall under Putin's definition of U.S.-engineered revolutions. The word he uses to describe them is, curiously, the same as Gruevski's description of the incriminating recordings: "a lesson" for Russia on what to avoid.
19:09 [ISL] "Liberal Alan McIsaac wins seat in coin toss after recount tie" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
CBC reports from Prince Edward Island.

Liberal candidate Alan McIsaac's seat in the P.E.I. legislature was affirmed by a coin toss on Tuesday, after a judicial recount of the votes in the May 4 provincial election revealed a tie.

Progressive Conservative candidate Mary Ellen McInnis lost the election by just two votes to incumbent McIsaac.

She officially filed for the recount in District 5, Vernon River-Stratford, on May 12.

Judge John Douglas performed the recount in a room at the Atlantic Technology Centre in Charlottetown.

15:54 [LINK] "Michael Sam first openly gay CFL player as he joins Alouettes" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star reported that out college football star Michael Sam will be playing for the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

Friday morning the former U.S. college football star and NFL draftee signed with the Montreal Alouettes, becoming the CFL’s first openly gay player. Financial terms of the two-year deal weren’t released.

“I am very excited and proud to join the Montreal Alouettes,” Sam said in a statement released by the team. “I cannot wait to put on the pads, get back on the field and work hard each and every day with my teammates to bring a Grey Cup to the great fans here in Montreal.”

Sam arrives in Montreal after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams, then spending the bulk of the 2014 season on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.

And his signing comes two years into the CFL’s partnership with You Can Play, an advocacy group that works to foster inclusion for homosexuals in sport. Executive director Wade Davis says the agreement didn’t influence Sam’s signing, but thinks the relationship will help smooth Sam’s transition to the league.

“It speaks to the CFL being proactive and not reactive,” says Davis, a former NFL player who came out as gay after he retired. “The important thing now is that these conversations are being had. It’s really transformative.”
