Diarrhea, Toxic Masculinity, The Magnificent Seven And Robert Vaughn

The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven

One of Sarah’s all-time favourite random facts is that everyone had diarrhea on the set of the classic 1960 western The Magnificent Seven.

Recently Sarah expanded on this runny bit of info in a sprawling essay for Medium that tackled the trots, toxic masculinity and one of her all-time favourite actors, Robert Vaughn.

If it sounds like a lot to take in, well, it is.

Music Gossiping On The Danko Jones Podcast

Danko Jones podcast

Danko Jones podcast

One of my favourite thing I worked on this year was helping edit international rock ‘n’ roll star Danko Jones’ new book I’ve Got Something To Say.

To help promote said book Danko had me on his long-running podcast in the fall.

We didn’t actually do much “promotion” of the book, but we sure had a time gossiping and light trash talking all sorts of things music.

The Many Questions About The Roy Orbison Hologram Show

It was with some intense curiosity that Sarah and I recently attended a performance of the Roy Orbison “In Dreams” hologram show.

Would the show be good? Would the music be good? How realistic would the hologram be? These were all obvious questions going into the show.

These were not, however, the questions Sarah ended up pondering at length after watching the whole thing.

She wrote on all these questions in a piece for Medium.

A Tribe Called Red’s Bear Witness

Genre and culture expanding electronic act A Tribe Called Red have been hard at work converting their We Are The Halluci Nation album into an actual nation of a sort.

If not a “nation” in the traditional geo-political sense, it’s certainly taking shape in the art and music world.

I spoke to band member Bear Witness about this evolution in advance of the X Avant festival this fall.
