Girl Power

I don’t see too many female dj’s hitting the scene but this past Friday it was good to see DUBSMACK featuring a female. And one badass female at that. Instant girl crush. And I guarantee she’ll make you dance.

I almost didn’t make it out to see Vilify, but somehow I found myself sweating up a storm at Ritual. AND I was glad.

People, be prepared. This summer is going to be ridiculous. Borgore is coming up and the place is going to be packed. No one is going to want to wear clothes in there. It’s like a forest fire!

So while you’re warming up, if you missed Vilify then check this video. Although it really won’t compare to the real thing…

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.

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

Where did January go?

I’m back after a brief hiatus. Sorry, folks, but journalism calls.

While I’m here I’ll update you on some cool things you may also be checking out in the next couple of weeks. If not, then you should consider doing so!

Ajapai is coming to Ottawa this Friday! Tickets are pretty cheap so scoop them while you can! If you’ve never heard of him, he’s a dubstep artist from Japan. As you know, I’m a mega-fan of dubstep, so as soon as I heard “Japan” and “dubstep” I immediately began to feel my mouth water. He’s at ritual nightclub and I strongly encourage you to go!

And on my dear little sister’s birthday [February 11th], it also happens to be DUBSMACK. I may have to bring her to her very first night out at ritual to experience some solid beats.

Rainman will be there, of course. Every time I see him, it only gets better.

Mt. Eden will be the feature that night, coming all the way from New Zealand. Ottawa is really stepping up the game in the dubstep scene. I’ve been to some amazing shows just a bus ride away from my house!

I find Mt. Eden to be pretty chill, definitely excited to see what kind of show they’re gonna bring us here.

My next hope is that Skrillex will make his way back to Ottawa. I hope we showed him a good enough time to make him want to come back again!

And THAT is my dubstep dose.
