Back to the World (Where the Action Is)

September 24th, 2010

You may notice that aside from updates to the sidebar list of Toronto shows, there have been no posts here lately. That’s because I am very, very busy with my friends Chris and Margaux over at BACK TO THE WORLD, our group blog.

It started in early summer (Torontoist did an interview with us at the time) but now has really hit a stride. There are posts every weekday.

Here are some of my own favourite and most Zoilus-friendly posts there, though you should browse around at your own leisure as there’s a lot of good stuff. Also follow us on Twitter as @theworldbackto for updates. (Incidentally I am @carlzoilus on that thingy.)
