Yes, St. Jamestown! A friend of mine used to live there, but your video is the first time that I've seen in it daylight.

How did you guess? It's officially called the "get up outta your seat and do the bugaloo all around the car before you get back in and drive away" light, but most folks know it as "bugaloo" for short. We Canadians are striving to combat the unhealthy inactivity fostered by an automotive culture, so this is one of the ways that we encourage our citizens to remain physically active. Fines for noncompliance run upwards of a hundred dollars.

Ha. It's an advanced green, an arrow at which you may turn left before the cars in the opposing lane are given the green to approach. You'll see it at some of the more busy intersections.

i love the dude playing cricket, + also the part where the 2 pigeons are totally dancing in time to the music. perfect.

AND, most mystifying of all, i spotted the evidence, which was there if anyone cared to notice, that canadians are once + for all more evolved than the rest of us:
hello! they have traffic lights in FOUR colo(u)rs up there. stark cleverly made the movie in b+w, so that we tricolor traffic-lighters south of the border will still be in the dark, as it were, on what the mystery 4th color is. but then maybe we couldn't even recognize the color - maybe canadians have extra-evolved eyes that see beyond the "normal" (i.e. non-canadian) spectrum.
what does the 4th color signal for, anyway? stop, yield, go, + then...?
wave at pedestrians? whistle? shake it all about? revel in your canadianness?
such a magical, mysterious land. thank you for this glimpse of the wonder.

I like the bike basket shots too; they're my favorite! Yay Mfilms on wheels.

Come to toronto, take your show on the road. Yes, that was a bike basket. I just bought it, specifically so that I could make Mfilms on wheels without killing myself. I don't remember if there was something going on when the bus had the "go Canada go" thing. That was footage from a while back, at least a couple of years. Maybe olympics? I can't remember. But thanks! ;D

This is really pretty and great choice of music. I also like the view from the bike? basket. It also makes me want to go to Toronto right now! I love the Go Canada Go on the bus.

That is one of the reasons I love Vivaldi so much. And in the 18th century, nobody was teaching girls how to play. Vivaldi is totally my main man. I'm glad you like this, music major!

I felt like I was there from the comfort of my own home, black and white works really well. Great choice of music too, Vivaldi is one of my favorite composers. Did you know that most of his concertos were composed for an girls' orphanage for teaching purposes? (have to use my use 3 years as a music major any chance I can get:P)

Culter... This reminds me of a music video from "Sunday Morning With CHarles Karolt".
You are a pro. I love multiculteral citys. That is what I like about San Fransico. It's so dence with different culters that the identity of one person in the city has many different colored skins. I always felt that way about NYC. I always the citys beauty in the people not in the cement.

St. Jamestown di Concerto

3 square city blocks, 18 highrises, 15000 people, 57 languages, St. Jamestown is the most densely populated census tract in Canada. It's overpopulated, it's impoverished, and it's the only patch of land that I have ever truly loved.

This is a collage of footage taken over the last three years of my love affair with this neighborhood of Toronto.
