!! OMG, drunken stupor – CAR EDITION: deadmau5 invites Toronto Mayor Rob Ford for ride in his new douchemobile !!

EDM DJ deadmau5 hit up Toronto’s crack-smoking Mayor Rob Ford yesterday while parked outside front of Toronto’s city hall, inviting him to come along for a ride in the musician’s custom Ferrari (which looks like it was birthed and should be driven by Ryan W, and is decorated in Nyan cats and rainbows) deadmau5 has dubbed it the “Purrari”.
Ford took time out of his busy schedule of supposedly running the biggest city in Canada to exchange tweets and get all cutesy with deadmau5. Check out their interactions after the jump!

!! OMG, HAPPY FRIDAY: Health Canada approves MDMA for first Canadian study in trauma survivors’ therapy !!

Grab your glowsticks, Kikwear phat pants, and pacifiers, bitches! — because The National Post is reporting that MDMA has been approved by Health Canada for the first Canadian study to be used in trauma survivors’ therapy!

“What the MDMA does, because of the physiological effects, it means you are in a present, fearless state — able to look at those events without being re-traumatised, and healing in the present what was the trauma of the past,” Dr. Ingrid Pacey, one of the researchers, said.
The Journal of Psychopharmacology reported that more than 83 percent of severe trauma, or post traumatic stress disorder patients treated with MDMA and therapy had completely recovered, “without evidence of harm,” and a follow-up study found that patients still had little to no symptoms 2 years later.
One of Dr. Pacey‘s research partners thinks the drug’s therapy uses are obvious.“It brings you into the present,” Mr. Feldmár said. “You don’t worry about the past or the future. It opens your heart; you don’t feel any shame.”

Does leaving a Kardashians marathon on loudly in the living room count as trauma? I need to figure this out… maybe if we can all score some freebies, then these will be my look for Saturday while we lay in a cuddle puddle listening to this:

!! OMG, chill vibes for all: “Dude Chilling Park” sign becomes official and permanent for East Vancouver park !!


Residences of East Vancouver’s Guelph Park have got some sweet new public art to celebrate this week, as the “DUDE CHILLING PARK” sign that appeared in their park (but was taken down) — has made its triumphant and permanent return!

The sign was created by artist Viktor Briestensky and designed to mirror the format of other city park signs. Its original location was near a Michael Dennis sculpture of a lounging figure in Guelph Park. When park staff noticed the sign last November, it was taken down. But an outpouring of support through social media for the sign led the park board to reconsider.

Though, not everyone is happy.
It wouldn’t be the year 2014 without some uptight bitches weighing in on this! Steven Bohus of RAMP, the Residents Association of Mount Pleasant, says his organization was not consulted about the sign.

“A lot of the residents feel that this isn’t a game. There is a school there, there’s a parents’ advisory committee, and I don’t think this is a joke.”

Actually, Steve — pretty sure it is a joke — a good one. Just have a seat and chill, dude! Pretty sure it’s not gonna effect the school kids. (Besides, shouldn’t RAMP be busy over at the elementary school trying to change Halloween to “black and orange day”?)

Meanwhile, Vancouver Park Board Commissioner Trevor Loke says that “more than 300 local residents were consulted with 8 per cent disapproving of the sign. 1,500 residents signed a petition in favour of the sign.” Park Board Commissioner Sarah Blyth says that the support on Twitter has been huge, and that she’s never “seen such broad support in a long time for art.”

Congrats to the residences of Mount Pleasant and welcome back, DUDE CHILLING PARK! Chill vibes for all!

!! OMG, can I haz skinny cheesburger mocha, no whip?: Montreal Opens First Ever North American Cat Café !!

FINALLY, your cat can be as anal and annoying as your ass, every morning when you spend 7 dollars on a half-caffeine, half-fat, soya one-pump vanilla bean latte, no bubbles, no whip, no eye-contact, extra hot, with orange toffee nut sprinkles!
Café Chat l’Heureux, a cat cafe, will be opening this summer in Montreal’s Plateau, and not only will you be able to cuddle with your feline friends while you enjoy your coffee, but you’ll also be able to take comfort in the fact that it’s all for a good cause! According to MTL Blog:

Straight out of Asia, the initiative behind this new cat café is to raise awareness on the treatment of animals in Quebec. Brought to Montreal by Clément Marty, after travelling Japan and South Korea, the feline-focused joint will have everything a normal cafe has (coffee, pastries, tea) just with a bunch of cats walking, napping, and prowling all over the place. Very much a social initiative, Café Chat l’Heureux will facilitate the adoption of cats, promote the awareness of animal issues, and hopefully better the lives of customers with calming”cat therapy.”

So, will you be making the trip to Montreal for a coffee with a side of catnip anytime soon?
