Summer summer summer!

It’s approaching. I can feel it, so of course I’m getting sick of writing papers.

It’s past 11 and my final paper is due tomorrow at 5 o’clock. And you guessed it, it’s not done. It’s the last thing on my brain, I’m just considering what I will get up to this summer.

Obviously I’ve recently acquired a passion for the pornography industry. Throughout the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of research interviewing porn stars, feminists, and scholars. I actually was trying to get an interview with one of my favourite people in the porn industry – Sasha Grey – unfortunately her book tour has swept her away to all edges of the planet! However, I did manage to have a great telephone conversation with the great Annie Sprinkle! A Legend, really. She was in Ottawa at the end of March for a presentation at Ottawa U. While essays held me back from attending, she’s amazing and I regret not being able to go! Hopefully she comes back.

One thing I recommend you watch if you’re as interested in porn as me…9 to 5 days in porn! It’s a pretty awesome documentary, very educational, you could say.

CHECK IT BY CLICKING IT!

Hopefully I can learn more about the industry, maybe write some more interesting pieces!

A new project for me this summer…I’ll be writing sex posts for FASHGASM, my roomie’s awesome fashion blog. She decided she needed to add a little something into the mix, and, well, fashgasm is half orgasm so why not make it SEX?

In the meantime, I’ll be working this new job of mine, trying to find time for studying, and making time for the crazy shenanigans that will be going down at RITUAL this summer. 2011, you will be the best yet. I hope the crowds are HUGE because I know getting up early for work or summer school (ugh) shouldn’t deter from the goooood times!

Speaking of, tomorrow:

It’s crunch time folks so you better get that studying done and those papers written.

This is all I want

12TH PLANET

Even though the downstairs portion of RITUAL is small we still showed 12th Planet that we know how to have a damn good time!

Here in Ottawa, we don’t mess around. If you weren’t there you missed some pretty ugly Christmas sweaters and some pretty filthy dubstep. AWESOME NIGHT! Hopefully he’ll hit us up again.

And he even gave us a little taste of last week once again, kinda like this…

Now I’m wayyyyy too pumped for February. Skrillex & Nero. See you there?

Better late then never

I know I missed the official 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death on here, but it doesn’t mean I wasn’t thinking about it. Because I was. thirty years is a long time…

 

“Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans…”

This week was the end of classes. While most are probably not too excited about exams, I have to admit, I only have one. Next Friday. So this leaves me a lot of time to slack and do other things. It’s great. I apologize to those of you studying your asses off, though…suckers…

Well I will share some things with you. I didn’t realize that there was a music video for Don’t Haunt this Place by The Rural Alberta Advantage, but there is! And it’s stop motion, which I am a fan of. Hopefully you are too! Apparently I’m a bit behind on the music video side of things. I rarely watch them, and I rarely enjoy any, to be honest.

But this is different. Listening to the lyrics it’s pretty obvious this is a song about breaking up, love and so on and so forth. BUT for those of you expecting a heterosexual romance, I tell you, it is not. And I think that’s the most beautiful part.

And as for your weekly dose of dubstep…this weekend at RITUAL you can catch 12th Planet with Rainman and Numbchuck. I’ve been looking forward to this all week.

It was sad when Skrillex left the stage last Thursday. I was ready to dance all night. The crowd was pretty amazing, and pretty sweaty, too. People fell, people danced, people yelled. It was all fun. But the heat was intense. If you didn’t get yourself some water you were bound to check out. It might have been cold out but it felt pretty refreshing. It was necessary to go outside every so often, no matter how much you were loving the show.

Good news for myself and other Skrillex fans, he’ll be making his way to Toronto this February. I’ll be there. Will you?

I’ll leave you with something tempting. Maybe you’ll even feel the need to hit up Ritual tomorrow. Your speakers aren’t doing it justice…
