Artist’s Cookbook: Organised Dahl Courtesy of Organised Scum

Every morning at 8, I strolled into this crazy Russian professor’s lectures about math, nuclear physics and whatever else he wanted to talk about. I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out what this guy was doing in the middle of nowhere North Carolina. But he was there and so was I. I approached him after class one day and asked if he had […]


Listen: Protein Packed Poppers from Van Damsel, The Disco Fries, Running Young and Work Drugs

Are you packing the protein like I am? Then these tracks are perfect for your current eating habits: I came out to my kitchen table this morning and noticed a bowl of my protein packed stew sitting on the table with a smug look on its face. Before I could ask, the soup offered “You know, I really am the best protein you’ve ever had. You mind as […]


Cook: Lentil, Barley and Split Pea Stew

“I’ve heard it all before, I could hear it all a thousand times more” -“What If I” by Pennywise (the band, not the clown) I get it, Señor Meatman, I’m a vegan and you are super concerned about the amount of protein I take in. I assure you there is nothing to worry about. I get more than enough protein from all the protein bars I […]

Today is the day that indie alt-rock group 1990future rolls out their new EP, Roll On, to the masses. If you happen to reside in Toronto, you can catch the EP release show at the Soundtrack of the City Festival at the Hideout. What I like about the EP and 1990future is that they aren’t afraid to rock. Too many times I have to preface […]


Listen: Doldrum Shaking Singles from Pet Symmetry, Survival Guide, Strangeheart and Cody Crump

If you mess up squash dumplings and turn them into a pancake like batter you will be glad to know that these songs flow in a similar manner: “I know its late but I’m all out of trust” (I’ll admit, I thought it was drugs at first). This is one of the many memorable lines that comes from bespectacled Chicago trio Pet Symmetry’s song “Class […]

Love, Blender Tanson Yo Blender, You turn it into squash dumplings. Enjoy, Tender Branson Dear Tender, What do I do if my lazy ass decided to dice the one pound of yellow squash necessary for the […]


Food Flavored Album Review: The Go! Team’s The Scene Between

For three albums The Go! Team has made a name for itself by crossbreeding tricked out noise rock melodies, old school hip-hop, schizzed up blaxploitation and Bollywood soundtrack collages and dance music that feels like it came straight out of the blast furnace. Overtop, they’ve pumped in jump rope chant choruses and verses delivered with choo choo train like elocution by rapper Ninja (or Kaori Tsuchida or Chi Fukami Taylor […]
