I’m in the midst of trying to write about half-a-dozen large articles, so there isn’t too too much small easy stuff to report on. But I recently got mail from Maskull Lasserre responding to what I had written on his piece Coriolis and Mirana Zuger’s exhibit, Vrtlar at the McClure Gallery. I’ve appended it to to both articles if you care to read it (A and B).
In our ongoing series of old dead French painters in front of a film camera about a hundred years ago, we get to Claude Monet.

I wasn’t aware that details of Janet Cardiff’s and George Bures Miller’s wedding ceremony were important in understanding their art… I’ve ranted about 40 Part Motet before, and if someone pushes the right button I’d be more than happy to do so again.
For those of you with long memories, the owner of Galerie 2000 and the guy who threatened to sue me in 2007, is getting sued himself. According to this article in yesterday’s Journal de Montreal, one of his clients didn’t particularly appreciate some of M. Tremblay’s selling techniques.
For those of you with short memories, he has previously been in trouble with the law a couple of other times as noted in this article from Radio-Canada and this one in the National Post.
Slowly, delicately I’m looking to start talking more and more about Canadian whisky and American whiskey. One of the things holding me back is that the SAQ has a piss poor selection, but with a little luck and some patience I’m hopeful that it will change. In the meantime there are reviews of McGuinness Silk Tassel, which is available at your local LCBO but not at the SAQ.
Then there is a review of the Knob Creek Rye which doesn’t appear to be available in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or Plattsburgh.
As I discover more, I will post more.
