What kind of plant is that?

Got invited to like 3 "fundraiser succulent sale" in the past month alone...

For sure, there is nothing new to potted plants - but until recently the only plants I'd see in a public place would be those dusty money trees in Chinese restaurants. I'm glad the "trend" is coming back from a space design perspective. Like that plant wall you'll be having ;)

Gives a little more life to those generic minimalist spaces you see on every corner. (now with generic plant choices, but still.)

" nine out of 10 millennial shoppers are searching for a six-foot-tall fiddle-leaf fig tree similar to the ones they have seen on Instagram" my favourite line from that article ahahhaa

mmmmyeah, still not buying it. Apparently nobody remembers the "lucky bamboo" explosion of the oughts:

I cannot remember a period of time across my chequered existence in which houseplants weren't common and readily available everywhere.

Yo! Shut the fuck up and everyone can be happy here.

Older people can roll their eyes at the millennials and their precious houseplants...

The Star can get it's millennial click bait...

And the millennials can look at their plants and know that they have something all to themselves...

Don't let reality or memories of all the places you've ever been get in the way. Just forget the lawn and garden section of every K Mart you ever got drug through or any of the nurseries, or the plants in every office and restaurant.

It may be Fake News but it's got a reason for being.

Don't forget Chia Pets...

Another thought.

The slummiest house I ever lived in, where I was paying $117.50 to live in Cambridge Ma., twenty years ago, sharing one bathroom with eight other people had house plants.

We might have thrown out sink fulls of dishes and replaced them with 'new' salvation army dishes rather than wash them moldy platters, but we had a few plants.

The one time I didn't have plants was when a heroin addict moved into the house and stole my shit. And my roommates stopped paying for heat.

Actually I don't have plants now but I've got a 40sqft green wall and enough yard that I had to chip 8 bags worth last weekend. and I'm thinking of setting up a damn terrarium because that's the kind of idiot I am.

Yeah, Lisbon is AMAZING and super cheap still! My father likes to go there, once a year at least because he just loves it so much.

I am definitely going back some day. Didn't even have enough time to visit the Castelo! I've also heard that Porto is nice, perhaps even better.

That's the best fried chicken I've ever tried. No doubt KFC will never beat that. But it still looks pretty good actually! Nice video :)

When that came on I was thinking Eggo went a really strange direction with their marketing this year...

Thanks! For sure, Montreal's way better in the summer but it's nice to have some activities to get through the winter too :) I'm really happy about how that video turned out actually, I jsut wish the sound on the interview was a bit better.

Honestly, haven't heard much interest about learning russian from anyone lately, sorry :( But with the internet, I'm sure you'll find some people!

Got my first media pass to this outdoor festival called igloofest last week. interviewed a couple DJs and the co-founder, it was pretty neat! Still editing it, cutting down interviews is kind of a pain and I've got A LOT of other footage of the event... Currently at a 20 minutes video, got to cut it at least in half. Will try to get it done before the weekend :)
