Come Worry with Us! OFFICIAL TRAILER

Just saw this tonight, so good. Beautiful portrait of a new family, peppered with insightful challenges about the fucked up ways the world works. Powerful commentary from “rock moms” and how older women are pushed out of music scenes, the guilt and shame associated with wanting to be a creative person and a mother.

Also you should visit the website for the doc, http://comeworrywithus.ca/

It is beautiful.

Your self-identification of the night

in order to be hard enough

Your self-identification of the night

be hard enough

be hard enough.

I just cannot stop listening to this album. I’ve seen them perform live four times in the last four months and it never feels like enough. Ariel’s voice has completely bewitched me.

OFFmuralEs Festival | Ellen Gabriel portrait, next to “I’m a DJ not your sexy Juxebox” from another maille à part member and fellow friend

When installing this piece, a man approached me asking what I was doing. Sometimes I feel more comfortable discussing my work while I install but at the time I was stressed by the excessive police presence Montreal has been suffering from lately. So I simply replied “it’s a portrait of a woman”. He insisted, so I added “It’s Ellen Gabriel, a Mohawk leader”. “Ah! he said, Mohawk!” I saw his eyes sparkle a little so I continued “Yes, from Kanehsatake”. And then he told me he was from Akwesasne, the neighbouring mohawk community from Kanehsatake, but didn’t know Gabriel. I answered she was mostly known for her implication in the Oka Crisis in 1990, that I myself wasn’t Mohawk but thought her face had to be recognized more by our society for her historical implication and that she was an inspiration. “My grandfather used to talk a lot about Oka,  but I don’t know much about it. Thank you for doing this, I respect you” he said, and shook my hand.

this will have to be a stand-in for my daily outfit post for 13 sept. (ootd #5) my first day in montreal + traveling meant I didn’t get any proper photos! I’m going to maybe illustrate what I wore in a drawing instead.

where did you see this in montreal?! i saw a similar one when i was in the montreal in early july, and another one in quebec city in august.
(note: as much as i dislike the &#8220;telling women to smile&#8221; attitude, i still really like this since i read it as gender neutral/nice street art instead of in your face misogyny)

montreal: student demonstrations are costing the police department a lot of money »

yeah, i guess buying all that tear gas & flashbang grenades & pepper spray, along w/ funding those 2 police helicopters that fly over downtown for hours, must cost a lot of money

WHAT A FUCKING JOKE. when will we see a headline that reads “minister of education’s refusal to budge on tuition fee increase is costing a shitload of money, all for political games.” fuck. A.C.A.B.

also i have to say this makes me laugh pretty hard.
