School's Out @ Tango


Pioneers! O Pioneers!

O you youths, Western youths,

So impatient, full of action,

full of manly pride and friendship,

Plain I see you Western youths,

See you tramping with the foremost,

Pioneers! O pioneers!


That was part of a poem by the American poem guy Walt Whitman, and it was made into a super cool Jeans commercial like 5 years ago. I think the poem is called “TEENAGERS IN A FOREST” but I can’t full remember. Doesn’t funkin’ matter anyways bro, you know?

Tonight at TANGO PALACE COFFEE (they brew a real guuud bean!) a bushel of sexy young friends named the Leslieville 7 are hitting the patio at Toronto’s finest Beanery. A cluster of Western youths with standup and stories about summer. Summer love, puppy love, sex on beaches. Smoking the endo (which is pot). Ummmm… driving fast cars. Disneyland. California (or ¨Galifonia¨ if you’re Arnold Schwarzenegger). The soul-crushing depression of going back to school. Summer things. Whatevs.
