Description
After arriving in Montreal in January '08, I've spent the last year cooking, starting an herb garden, improving my french and taking a break from writing. I'm a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta in english and creative writing, with a bent towards poetry and fiction. One of my pieces of short fiction was published two springs ago in The Western Producer under the title "Dreams for Sale," and it deals with my childhood experience growing up on a farm north of Edmonton. In the future I hope to play frisbee, explore more of the content on Artistic Things, fix bicycles, continue my work with the Mankind Project, and go working on organic farms.

It’s usually a cliche to say “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”  Not so in the latest, typically gritty documentary by Miami-based rakontur studios, “Dawg Fight.”

Chronicling the lives of participants in a no-holds-barred, not-so-underground fight club somewhere in the southern United States, the film is creating buzz for its depictions of graphic violence.  And while the content may strike the casual observer as senseless, there is more to “Dawg Fight” than just bloody knuckles.  [ Continue Reading ]

nickcave 1 299x400 Only In Dreams

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave thinks “the familiar must move towards the fantastic.  I want to evoke feelings that are unnamed, that aren’t realized except in dreams.”  His recent “Soundsuits” exhibit at the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York manifests this movement, with complex and fantastical results.

While at first I was repulsed, indignant, and generally had my knickers in a twist (which sounds more and more like a cocktail than a turn of phrase), I feel much better now, and, besides the two or three decompressive cocktails, I’ll tell you why.  [ Continue Reading ]

web20pr2011 533x400 P&R dont need my pressFor a moment, I think I have them.  Maybe they even want me to believe it.  All I know is fashion rarely has this substance, this depth.  The texture of Petrovsky and Ramone’s pictures tacks metallic in my mouth, while the attitude is so thick it’s hard to digest.  I bite off more than I can chew, and the moment of thinking I have them ends.
