  • The Mixtape: Now Public!

    The Mixtape: Now Public!

    November 19, 2021, we shot a one-off show at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver, called The Mixtape. It represented the culmination of months of build-up and work from a handful of really wonderful people. Putting on a stand-up comedy show (and running it well) is often a difficult and thankless job, with a ton of…

  • From the Phone of Taylor Moorey

    Hello, I hope you’re well. I don’t know where to start this. The last few months, I’ve been mostly on a single creative track, which is very unusual for me. Most of the time, it’s trying to figure out where the impulses are leading, and if need be, attempting to corral them in one direction…

    The Case of Oggrim Ygrosse

    For many years, I’ve been writing different aspects of a massive, dark fantasy universe. Fantasy was my first love and continues to be a huge part of who I am. Across millenia, continents, and lives of hundreds of characters, big and small, piece-by-piece, I’ve been building this thing. Occasionally, I might post little bits of…

  • An Interview with Kelly Carlin

    An Interview with Kelly Carlin

    In her own words, “ Kelly Carlin is a thinker, writer, talker and doodler. She’s funny, serious, silly and deep. Sometimes she wishes she were Carol Burnett, other days it’s Patti Smith, but mostly it’s Oprah Winfrey. It’s complicated.” She is also a performer and story-teller based in LA, and as you might have guessed,…

  • “Only Half There” Review

    “Only Half There” Review

    If you know me, and certainly if we’ve discussed music, you’ve suffered through me blithering about my favourite artist. If you follow this podcast, you’ve heard my fumbling attempts at sounding insightful. And if you are the man himself, you’ve offered me more time and thought than I deserve.

  • An Interview with Grace Savage

    A four-time UK champion beatboxer, Grace Savage recently released her debut EP “Savage Grace,” featuring her incredible vocals, electronics, and, well…. Beatboxing. Self-effacing and thoughtful, Grace makes time in her busy schedule to work with children with special needs and teaches them how to beatbox. I’ve said ‘beatbox’ entirely too many times. It was an…

    Brian “Beav” Waddell, best known as the bassist of the Devin Townsend Project, took the time to sit and talk with me about music, their grueling tour schedule and our mutual love of bad jokes. I was pretty tired from two false fire alarms in my building last night and was not as prepared as…
