when & who…
woah! music was started in the summer of 2008 when "guthrie" and "nova" first began to hit the streets to campaign their project. Much like the Val Kilmer stint in Toronto, for five straight weeks, the guys postered Kensington Market with a photo of friend’s face. Thousands of posters were put up, peoples’ curiosity became to run, and shows were booked. The official woah! Gordo poster are still present today in Kensington Market, and even made it into the Broken Social Scene movie “This Movie is Broken”.
In the words of John Paul Sartre, “It’s the well-behaved children ... that make the most formidable revolutionaries. They don’t say a word, they don’t hide under the table, they eat only one piece of chocolate at a time. But later on they make society pay dearly.”
By following this simple equation you too can vandalize the streets of Toronto and increase your cardio vascular rate by running from police and hiding in alleys adjacent to Spadina Avenue all in the name of rock n’ roll.
white corn flour + boiling water = paste
-purchase 2 packages of ferma white corn flour from walmart
-grab a large bucket, a large paint brush, and broom stick from your father’s garage
-visit a local Starbucks and kindly ask them to fill up the large bucket with boiling water. Ignore the stares from people and avoid answering questions from university girls completing their crunch time assignments
-use the large broom stick to mix in the white corn flour until a thin, smooth paste has been formed
-locate an area in the downtown core, visited by thousands of people each day
-find a bare, lonesome pole, apply a coat of paste, apply poster, and seal with another coat of paste
-it’s all about “pride” so make sure the poster is applied perfectly with all edges of the poster sealed to the pole
-do not poster on the silver, greyish garbage cans in Toronto. They will find you and bill you for removing your poster
-it’s a war out there and sometimes postering over other people’s posters is ok.
