The New York Philharmonic graced La Maison Symphonique Saturday afternoon. I attended with my classically challenged girlfriend. She loved it and the New York Philharmonic’s version of Brahms Symphony No. 3 in F major was majestic. Especially my favourite part, the third movement, the Poco allegretto in C minor. It is romantic and melancholic to a T.
The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, Steven Spielberg’s and Peter Jackson’s Tintin opus, is set to come early to Quebec, and Dec. 9 looks like the early release date.

I hopped onto the metro and sat next to a woman listening to her iPod Touch.

I guess good old Steve Jobs will actually be around for quite some time.
