Every once in a while I still miss Toronto and all its *happenings*. Vancouver is delightful, but smaller, so we generally don't have the variety of activities here as there. In particular, I was recently very jealous of Toronto's CupCakeCamp. Sure .. BarCamp is great and DemoCamp .. also good. But CupCakeCamp?!?! Who wouldn't want to attend CupCakeCamp?
Well now, thanks to enterprising cupcake-lovers Stephanie and Victoria, CupCakeCamp YVR is happening! Friday, July 10, 2009. Tickets just went up "for sale" (they're free, but a donation is encouraged). You can also follow CupCakeCampYVR on Twitter.
Seeking Simone is a new lesbian web series about online dating. Follow the adventures of Simone Selkin as she dates her way through gay Toronto!
"What's so great about meeting 'in real life' first anyway? That's how Ava Braun met Hitler and look how that turned out."
Simone Selkin is single and in no way ready to mingle. Her excuses? Well, she's new to Toronto, she's trying to make the most of her big break on CSIS:ForensicSWAT and, if she's honest, she's still getting over her ex, Rebecca, who was a total skank. But back in Vancouver, Simone's best friend Audrey has a plan to get Simone back on the horse. And that plan is "online dating".
Don't fret, hets - Seeking Simone is not just for homos. It's a comedy for anyone who's ever dared to date - and lived to cringe forever over the tale.
Episodes 1 and 2 are ready and watch-able. And I hear their editor is working furiously on the third. Below is the trailer, to give you a taste of the show. I, of course, think it is charming and funny. But I acknowledge I'm biased. Still, give it a view - I'll bet you like it too!
