Based in Montreal, but beloved around the world. I write, I play guitar, I write songs, and I bring joy to the hearts of children and coffee to their parents. On a more serious note, I am a 24 year old musician and journalism student. My day gig (other than my studies) is a barista at Starbucks, but hey, we all gotta pay the bills, right?

This week, we’ll be talking with (intensive care), Montreal’s beautiful monsters of creative, dreamy sounds. Before the interview I was bewildered by their music. After the interview I was bewildered by everything, but much like kissing a girl, I liked it. Here in all their glory, is (intensive care).

So I’m driving down the street the other day, listening to my area’s standard generic ‘modern rock’ station (whatever that is). I hear a pretty kick-ass guitar lick fade in, and right away, no hesitation I realize it’s a new song by my absolute favourite band of all time.

Oh yes, I think to myself. New Pearl Jam. This day is amazing. [ Continue Reading ]

0 Artisticthings.com exclusive! Interview with Hexes & Ohs

Hello faithful readers,

I’d like to present a new feature that I’m hoping will become a semi-regular weekly thing. The plan? I find the best of the best music, the cream of the melodic crop, the rockin’ right stuff, bands that have what the French call a certain… I don’t know what. I take these bands, the best that Canada has to offer, and I let them explain in their own words why you should, nay, must check them out.

I gotta tell you, I hesitated before writing this. I’d like to think I’m not a narcissist, and I’m writing this blog to bring attention to wonderful artists who AREN’T me. But then I figured, fuck it, it’s my blog and I’ll be a shameless sell-out, and you can all **** while I sit here and *****.

clone 01 758 306x400 I Am Gabz: Where the playful meets the downright disturbing

Can you say ‘Warhol’? Polish artist Grzegorz Domaradzk has just published a new portfolio of his drawings and paintings, and while comparing them to to the famed pop-art icon might be a stretch, it isn’t far off. However, instead of obsessing over fame, Domaradzk seems to use his subjects as fuel for an [ Continue Reading ]

0 Ok, this might not be art, but its surprisingly awesome

If I wanted to deceive you, my loyal readers, about who I really am, I think I could do it for a short while. I could pretend to listen to really esoteric music, like Sigur Ros, and I think I know enough about such things that I could keep you in the dark about the truth. “What truth?”, you ask, your eyes widening in anticipation. Well, it’s awful to say, but here it is.

I wanna rock.

As should be clear, my name is Adam, and I am a new member of the artisticthings.com team. I’m very, very excited to be able to participate in this site, and I hope you are also. If you aren’t, we can still be friends, but it’ll be an awkward friendship. More of a frenemy thing, I think.
I’d normally write a bit about me, but why give it all away? I’d rather go for the mysterious stranger angle…ladies.
In any case, I look forward to contributing to the team. Art is a wonderful thing, but it’s a human construct. It has no inherent meaning, only the meaning we give it. So as much as I look forward to writing about art, I’m much more pumped about getting to know the readers (and fellow bloggers!) who give art it’s purpose.
Peace and love, my new friends.
Adam
