Dreamachzine BBQ

June 21, 2009

The BBQ that Hand Drawn Dracula and I threw on Friday afternoon at 159 Manning went off! Thanks to everyone who came. Seeing everyone have such a good time made all the effort and running around I did to set this party up worth it. Thanks to Musebox for staffing the BBQ’s and bartending, and of course thanks to Red Mass, Brian Borcherdt and Jon McCann, Pirate Love and my fellow Bang Bangs for playing.

People kept mistaking Scott Cudmore for me. He’s wearing the red t-shirt, I’m wearing the gray one. Get it right!

The Past 2 Weeks

June 15, 2009

The past 2 weeks is the longest stretch I’ve gone without updating my blog in the past 2.5 years.

I got laid off from my job at VICE on Thursday June 4th. Working there has been a great way to spend the past 4.5 years of my life, but it’s a good opportunity to focus on my own projects now.

I’ll be spending my days working from my studio here at 159 Manning. EI should be able to carry me through until I can support myself on my own projects. I’m excited!

I went to Lucas Geronimus’ art show the day before I got laid off, and picked up my new suit that Greg from Szoldier made for me before he moved back to Winnipeg last Sunday. On Tuesday night I went and saw Wayne Petti and a bunch of other bands at the Dakota.

I helped Jon Burford cut hair at Circa last Friday for House of Lords. Cutting hair from my kitchen to the dancefloor!

I finished drawing this t-shirt design for the Reason on Saturday June 6th, and then went to a campfire that night on the beach.

My sister, brother-in-law and my 6-year-old niece Josie came up from Indianapolis. Adrienne took us on a tour of CTV on Tuesday June 10th.

Adrienne and I went to Jon and Tabitha Burfords place for a BBQ on Friday night. It was also their mom’s birthday! Funnnnnn.

I took pictures at This Is London last night for their VAMPIRE night, and then spent all day in the basement of 159 Manning today with Brayden and Dustin recording the Bang Bangs.

Ted was feeling under the weather so he couldn’t be there, but we got 5 songs started that we can record his organ on top of later. It sounds great so far!
