    LOVING IT right now!!! I saw Mother Mother free on Sunday (they were AMAZING) and the medal ceremony last night… we were going to see Alexisonfire afterwards but it was cancelled… oh well. Still a week and a half more!

  • this woman is stuck in southeastern america… so excited about the olympics.. and iginla’s hat trick, of course!

  • aw, you guys are so much more civil than americans.

  • GT

    not to knock our national anthem, but i sorta wish we had a better song to sing on occasions like this. actually scratch that, not “better”, but maybe less formal, more upbeat. is that unpatriotic? ah well. looks wicked though. oh to be back in the homeland now!

  • lapetitefaon

    Canada made a great national anthem choice, the US’s national anthem sadly does not lend itself to happy sing-a-longs 🙁 jealous

  • Vancouver in a week, I can’t wait!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
