The Reckoning

With the current civil rights movement sweeping throughout the US and across the world, it’s seems like there is a reckoning for our current society and inequitable systems that have caused so much angst and heartbreak for people of colour.  While I’ve come across my fair share of close-minded and ignorant people in my life, […]

Beats & Pieces: May 2020

This downtime from shows has given a lot of DJs, producers and other creatives the time to learn some new techniques, build on some existing ones and just as importantly, catch up on some sleep. While I haven’t stumbled across as many burners as usual the past couple months,  I anticipate a steady stream of […]

Still Shining

I don’t know about you, but life has been a little weird in these parts lately. My fondness for FaceTime and hikes through the trails in my neighbourhood has increased exponentially. That’s not saying much considering since the invention of Apple’s video messaging service I have only used it a handful of times. Lately it […]

Isolation Tips

I’m not sure how things are in your neck of the woods, but it’s looking like most jurisdictions are getting inline with what went down in overseas because of Covid-19 and what has been taking place in my hometown of Vancouver, BC.  Things are locked down and businesses are closed across the board.  If you […]

Isolation Therapy:  Day 9 Just had a funny moment in the stairway of my building.   I was about to open the door when I noticed somebody opening it from the other side.   I took a step back and smiled as a lady in my building jumped a little bit from being startled.   […]

Well, That Escalated Quickly

Let’s be honest, though. It didn’t.

The data points were everywhere over the past few months from conversations with smart industry peeps who were […]
