welcome to vegas, a city on steroids. four days of dry heat, plastic faces, stilettos and money, money, money. i saw some things a person should never see. but i won’t post those photos cause they’s ain’t SFW.


interior lives

maneouvred IDS 10 this year. familiar designs in unfamiliar territory. the metro convention centre as a new venue…. worked. huge improvement from last year’s show at the exhibition place. more light never hurt nobody. (ditto double negatives.)


i find this charcuterie foodie craze funny. growing up in a traditional italian household meant that the dinner table was always loaded with homemade sausages, capicollos, proscuittos, and practically any other meat you can imagine. when i was fourteen, instead of going out with friends, my weekends were begrudgingly spent making sausages with my dad […]


in the span of two days, i have taken photos of twelve hakka spots around the fair city of toronto. and by toronto, i mean scarborough. and by fair city, i mean scary ghetto. this is how it went down at every.. single… one…..

headed to canzine at the gladstone last sunday. lots of fun, soo busy. i got super sweaty taking photos of things like this art installation on the 2nd floor. it featured found photos of mannequins from the 1930s and 40s. awkward. and cool. an apt description of everybody there.


get moist!

Wednesday night I headed to The Tranzac to catch Japanese/Canadian hybrid The Moist Towelettes play an adorable and sincere set of j-pop that was so bubblegum sweet it practically gave me a tooth ache. After an hour and a half of choreographed dance numbers, costume changes and catchy songs that sound like they belong on […]

So, the zombie genre has finally come to this. Sure it was a slippery slope, from Romero’s disturbing Dawn of the Dead (zombies congregate in a… shopping mall?) to the hilarious Shaun of the Dead (decapitation by vinyl record, HAH.) These movies recognized the absurdness and humour of the genre, but in the bloodiest, most […]
