Loose Fit Saturdays at Bar Italia

Friday, October 9th, 2015

On Saturdays, Dj No Contact and I play records at Bar Italia in Winnipeg. As anyone who knows what Bar I is must be wondering: yes, it was a little strange at first. In fact, it’s a little strange every week. You see, Bar I does have a bit of a reputation. All the salacious […]

Language, Hip-Hop and the 23rd of April at the Cavern in Winnipeg

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

The meaning of a word depends on how it is used. This is to say that language is essentially contextual, and that a word only has an identity through its relation to its other. A cliché example of this is when one word, in different contexts, holds opposite meanings, as in when “bad” is used […]

Gruf the Druid’s Surface Area Album Release Party

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

There are three concert memories I have in my mind at all times. One is the memory of some fool in the front row of a Public Enemy concert refusing an offer from Flava Flav to swap his Florida Panthers jersey for the latter’s clock necklace. All these years later, I still ponder from time […]

End the War on the Holiday Rap Convention

Monday, December 1st, 2014

There is a War on the Holiday Rap Convention and we are sick of it. That’s why I have banded together with John Smith, Nestor Wynrush, Lonnie Ce, 3Peat and Cvlt Wvffle to end the insanity. Every year when we report Haters assaults on the traditions of the Holiday Rap Convention, the crazy loons begin […]

Video for “Saturday”

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Last year I was lucky enough to have the experience of a lifetime: touring across Europe with my friends from Zucchini Drive. I’ve been on many tours before, but never like that one. Twenty-one cities in just under a month’s time. We drove all over Europe from Spain to Germany and (almost) everywhere in between. […]
