Hydraulophone Fun!!

You never know what surprises to expect at the Toronto Pride festival, so OUTLOOKS was pleased to find this crazy fun musical instrument, available to test out during the festival.

It's called a Hydraulophone, and combines sounds and waterworks (all in the shape of cute(?) sperm) to create beautiful music...well beautiful to some, depending on the right combination of notes, and haunting to others.

Check out and for some hilarious videos and to see and learn more about the amazing Hydraulophone!

Toronto Pride Wrap-up

OUTLOOKS attends the 29th Annual Toronto Pride Festival in 2009!
Well, another great year at Toronto Pride for OUTLOOKS Magazine has bestowed upon us excitement and an inability to resist attending next years celebrations!
This years theme "CAN'T STOP: WON'T STOP" lingered in the air above the 1.2 million spectators at the annual Pride Parade. According to Pride Toronto, Pride Week draws as much as $100 million to the local economy and generates $18 million in tax revenue for governments. A nice way to stimulate the economy. This is great news and we hope that the years to come will keep the festival growing with pride and events.
Thanks to all the readers who have sent in photos from their Toronto Pride 2009 experience! Here are a few of ours to share for those that couldn't make it this year, and don't forget to plan for next years 30th Annual Toronto Pride Festival in 2010!

Of course, the TD Bank Models proudly show off their bodies every year. Nice Job!

Michael Jackson's Star Studded Memorial

The memorial service for Michael Jackson is being held today at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, with a massive number of viewers expected to tune it to this historic event. Many celebrities will be on hand to pay tribute to the King of Pop; including Mariah Carey, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Brooke Shields, Magic Johnson, and Jennifer Hudson. Jackson's long time friend, Elizabeth Taylor, was asked to speak but will not be in attendance, as she was quoted as saying that "I cannot guarantee that I would be coherent to say a word."

The extraordinary event will be attended by 17,500 people who obtained tickets through a random lottery. Scalpers posted listings for tickets on eBay and Craigslist, with prices going for thousands of dollars (many of these postings were later removed).

Jackson will reportedly be buried at Forest Lawn cemetery in Hollywood Hills today, possibly before the public event. No public funeral procession through city streets was scheduled, and it was not known if Jackson's body would appear at the Staples Center, although a casket is in place throughout the memorial.

Jackson passed away on June 25 from cardiac arrest, although rumours are still swirling about the circumstances involving his passing. To view the memorial live, head to
