Current Thoughts/Feelings About My Art Practice
Theory and thought without overly didactic process. Illegal space. How to be a better person. How to get over the end of semester blues. Negative dialectics. How to make a homemade vacuum sealer.
A Question I Keep Asking Myself:
Who shut down the SAD RAD and what the fuck were they thinking?
How do I get as cool as Matt Samways and Courtney Rafuse?
Fond Memories From OBEY Conventions Past:
Missing them all due to seasonal labour.
Anticipation Of OBEY Conventions To Come:
Vatican Shadow, Rob Sweigard, Holzkopf, Doom Tickler, Man Made Hill, Tenderness, a NSCAD Queer Collective/Emily Davidson Collab (last time they revived a Halifax gay disco club in its former location at the Khyber. Let’s do it again!), Keiji Haino, Pauline Olivieros.
Advice For Visiting Artists:
Go to other OBEY shows. Check out the huge hole in the ground downtown.

Guilt – Looming industrial/sample sludge from C. Leonard and Halifax poet laureate M. Grimson
Broken Deer – Multi-faceted beautiful weird child of Lindsay Dobbin, songstress, mystic.
D/AA/D – Penumbral churning satanic hums from Alex Pearson.
JFM – Sample music from Sackville NB but he’s really good and he plays here all the time so…
