People Get Tanned for TIFF Parties

On Monday Sept 14th 2015, Raymi Lauren White also known as Raymi Toronto visited Urbansun tanning salon to artificially darken the skin on her body in time for a TIFF party the following evening.  She thinks it makes her look more beautiful and I have ever reason to believe she’s right. This is her story, Raymi Visits Urbansun Tanning salon in Toronto.

You can get the whole scoop on the #ACTRAGetsLoose party by reading her personal blog post about the making of a well tanned Raymi the Minx and I got some great pictures at the event itself and wrote this article about the ACTRA Hang Loose Media TIFF party on Toronto is Awesome magazine. Raymi was welcomed onto the red carpet by a barrage of photojournalists and her brown skinned self against the ACTRA backdrop appears in Jen McNeely’s comprehensive account of the event in SheDoesTheCity com.

Broken Factories, Daily Distillery for Erp Software, Designer Swimwear and a Beauty School

art piece - broken stairway, un-productive system,
I walk past the bone chilling painting on the right quite often, yet I still cant remember the artist’s name… I dont look. Does anyone out there know? pls leave in comments.
When I think of Broken Factories, this is what I imagine. This image has planted itself in my mind’s eye. This decrepit stairway in an old homestead is a dreamlike vision of squalor. It serves to remind me how far I’ve come in my own journey toward organizing a productive life and being a better citizen contributing more and more thought provoking rich media dissecting the living conditions of the human race.
This fine art painting can be found hanging on a wall somewhere in the distillery… do you know where? Read Daily Distillery for more details.
management tool, profit margins, erp software tool, program Broken Factories is a photo contest on Lenzr that reflects Rudolf Arnheim’s idea of man-made elements always moving toward equilibrium which in the case of abandon industrial centers is the presence of rust and decay being the first stages of a return to nature.
Photographers and painters, image makers in general have a theory about entropy and so make action pictures out of static shots – cant you just see the paint peeling around that old staircase above? and can we use this ideological concept to suggest that static shots of crumbling manufacturing complexes and warehouses with broken windows and vandals are actually part of a larger more wholesome process of decay which in itself is the physics of life reorganizing its component parts into a wide spread chaos, which is be default its most effective layout, as per the laws of nature.
Submit your best photos of abandon industrial centers for your chance to win a Toshiba NB100 Netbook courtesy of an erp software company that specializes in making high quality command management systems to better organize business initiatives.
