I was recently going through some misfiled stuff of mine at Archive.org, and came across this interview I did with Victor Quijada from Rubberbandance Group back in 2009. It hasn’t gotten much love since then as it was not in the Zeke’s Gallery collection at Archive.org among other reasons. I gave it a listen and still get a big kick out of it. Thought you might like to hear it as well.

I also rediscovered this gem, also from 2009. where I spoke with Marie-Eve Albert from Imprudanses (and if you like it, they are performing on February 3 at Café Campus – go see them. They are awesome!)

Two things occurred to me while going through the misfiled stuff, a) sometime this year I am going to upload my 1,000 podcast and b) I have some work to do in order to clean things up.
Last November I had the chance to interview Pierre Dorion about the exhibit he had at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal and about his practice. I was finally able to finish editing it over the holidays. If you have a spare 37 minutes to watch, I
think hope you might like it.
or if you prefer YouTube to Archive.org
Either way I’d suggest watching it on a fullscreen as the native resolution is 1280 x 720, and it was filmed in HD.
I’ve updated the Montreal Restaurant List. L’Arrivage, Cocagne, Hotel Herman, Le Renard, La Soupiere made it from the To Try side to the Done and Worth Going Back side. I also added a bunch of Sandwich places (I guess I’m trying to do lunch more often) along with Inferno, Manger Avec Eric, Café Mardi Gras, Rodizio Brasil and Santa Barbara, among others.
I’ll leave it up to you to figure out which restaurants are no longer on the list.
Remember to print it up double-sided and keep it in your wallet so that you have it with you at all times when it might prove useful – that or download it to your phone. As per usual if you have any comments, suggestions or ideas, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. And if anyone is interested, the previous versions have been downloaded almost 3,800 times.
A while ago, I went to see Atlas PyroVision Productions’ “Pyro Fantasia” which was part of L’International des Feux Loto-Qubec presented by Telus. July 31, 2012 to be exact. I was finally able to get all the technology working as it should, and this is my review.
or if you prefer watching on YouTube…
Then finally if you would like to see a collage I made of the four videos I was able to find of the performance, click here.
I should seriously discuss with the powers that be at Astral about turning this into some kind of regular paying gig. On Friday I was invited to be on the Tommy Schnurmacher show (guest hosted by James Mennie) so as to discuss hamburgers in Montreal. Somehow extraterrestrials got in the picture as well.

To the Stone-cutters
Stone-cutters fighting time with marble, you foredefeated
Challengers of oblivion
Eat cynical earnings, knowing rock splits, records fall down,
The square-limbed Roman letters
Scale in the thaws, wear in the rain. The poet as well
Builds his monument mockingly;
For man will be blotted out, the blithe earth die, the brave sun
Die blind and blacken to the heart:
Yet stones have stood for a thousand years, and pained
The honey of peace in old poems.
and Tod Browning
Are all in the public domain.
