  • SkryPod, with FASTWURMS, Nuit Blanche Toronto 2009

    Just in time for Hallowe’en (actually, I am always in time for Hallowe’en). I read many, many cards to many, many people. To my surprise, not one of my customers had a fatal collision with a bus in his/her near future.

  • Pride 2009 Buttons
  • Granny Boots with DJ Fatback

    I recently curated/hosted/Djed a special Valentines edition of the Gladstone Hotel’s Grannyboots party, on Feb 11. Featured guests included FASTWURMS, who created a wonderous Tarot reading tent, Keith Cole, who created (and employed!) his new and very helpful “cock washing station”, the legendary Mdme. Zsa Zsa The Two Dollar Psychic (aka Andew Harwood), who gave glittery predictions for the future and a bountiful crafting table (wo)manned by Kirsten Johnson and Anthony Easton, wherein many pretty paper flowers and love cards were made. Photos attached! My dj persona, DJ Backfat, wore a fetching cape and a wig stolen from a dead Winnipeg matron. Don’t ask.

     

  • Live With Out Culture

    Co-created with Jared Mitchell in response to the City of Toronto’s lame Live With Culture campaign, which featured overly peppy underwear models dancing with books and paintbrushes. Live With Out Culture was first shown at Paul Petro Multiples, then at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, both in Toronto.
