dj kali @ burning monday - last time forever


ok, so here it is, the final dj kali playlist at the final burning monday at katacombes show bar. very sad to see it go, but hopefully a phoenix can rise from burning mondays' ashes.

i want to extend a big, big, BIG thanks to everyone who turned out and i hope that you all enjoyed yourselves. for those of you out-of-towners, i hope to be able to entertain you at some point in the future. and for those of you in montreal who didn't show up, i never liked you very much anyway.

jihadvertising?

i keep seeing this ad for tictac candies:



am i the only one who finds the suicide bomber clown at the end a little unnerving? all the nice natural things like the bunny and the [extinct] woolly mammoth and the fruit get devoured by a trying-to-appear-nonthreatening-but-obviously-psychotic clown who then blows himself up. congratulations, tictac, i think this ad has landed you on about a dozen watch lists.

oh and by the way, showing me that your product will somehow cause my stomach to explode in a rainbow of wtf makes me believe that doing consuming tictacs would be a worse dietary decision than the time i ate two raw eggs and a half a bottle of hot sauce on a dare.

making faces :: women's rites

the magic of the internet, specifically the magic of instagram, recently brought me in contact with rituelle de fille, a new brand [launched in 2014] and completely new to me, although some of their products have apparently received plaudits from the media. their branding reminds me very much of the early years of illamasqua: a well-edited collection of colour products [there are no base or complexion products as of yet, except blush] with an emphasis on including shades that are daring and unexpected.
