Just in time for Hallowe’en, Geekent brings us the first good look at Christian Bale’s outfit for Batman Begins. Hrmm. Well, it’s probably a good thing he’s a creature of the night and all that. And I don’t see any nipples. Click here for the full-size pic, courtesy of Joblo.
Canadians are well-represented on MTV’s post-CMJ list of bands who live up to the hype – Four out of ten, not bad at all. Arcade Fire, Controller.Controller, Death From Above 1979 and The Dears all get shout-outs from the channel that still likes to pretend it has anything to do with music. From For The Records.
eye introduces Augie March to Toronto. The Aussie outfit will be at The 360 next Monday. I’ve heard very little of their stuff but will be in attendance, hoping to be impressed. Locals The Old Souls support.
NOW presents the winners of their annual “Best of Toronto” poll. The results for these things are always disappointing – the readers poll is inevitably predictable and depressingly lowest common denominator (HMV as best music store?

Congratulations to the Red Sox Nation on being World Champions. It’s been a long time coming. So does that officially make the Leafs the most pathetic team in sports?
Yeah, running a little late today. Going to be all over the GTA at meetings for the rest of the day. Sometimes work happens.
