I wish I weren’t writing about this because it truly does make me angry! Ironic how a few months […]

Music Video Vendredi – Lianne La Havas – ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’

Posted July 20, 2012 by Rachelle

First off, I think this 22-year-old Londoner knows how to belt out a note. Her sound shows a mix of old-fashioned melody with hints of soul and pop, smoky vocals and splash of youthful vulnerability.

Music Video Vendredi – Magenta Skycode’s ‘Kipling’

Posted September 16, 2011 by Rachelle

“Kipling” the song title of a poignant  yet simply beautiful music video was contrived for the Finnish Indie rock band, Magenta Skycode.  The musical rhythm complimented with the fabled plot of the video leaves meaning to be a construct of the viewers’ creative imagination.  The sense of fear that is portrayed in the dog chasing the […]

Posted June 3, 2011 by Kristi

Richard Elliot, executive director of the Canadian HIV/AIDS legal network recently stated: “It’s become very clear that we have a health minister, and presumably a government behind him, who are denialists.” Awesome. Let’s talk about that. The Alberta government recently approved $14 million for prevention efforts (mostly awareness-heavy) to combat the pathetically high STI rates in […]
