“Before I became a feminist, I suppose I was an angel, a poet, a revolutionary,” wrote Nicolle Brossard, a Quebec poet, novelist, and essayist who has written more than 30 books since she began publishing in the 1960s. Along with numerous other awards she’s won, she’s taken home the Governor General’s Award for poetry twice, […]

The Functional Traveller: A journey into Aokigahara

With the advent of a terribly inaccurate Hollywood film, and a more respectfully documented Vice short, I thought the time was right to explore a Japanese topic that many people are curious about: Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest. I recently went there with a friend under the premise of an anthropological expedition. This […]

No idea: Our January 22, 1991 issue featured the story “Who stole the man in the window?” The piece looked at the strange case of Cam Olsun, who was not a man but a cardboard cutout (bear with me here). Turns out Olsun had been hanging out on the second-floor window of Camosun’s audio/visual department […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 4/5 How Star Wars: The Force Awakens executive producer J.J. Abrams has gone almost 50 years without ever encountering the concept of subtlety is beyond me. Fortunately, he subsidizes this gaping hole in his creative efforts by jamming every second with dazzling imagery and exciting action. Star Wars: The Force […]

Around the holidays, Christmas music is inescapable. From shopping malls to private parties, the blithe choruses of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Deck the Halls” will follow you from Thanksgiving dinner right up until your Christmas feast. Some relish how these songs carry with them the spirit of the season, while others fiercely detest them. […]

New Music Revue: Reversing Falls rock ragged, raw

Reversing Falls Reversing Falls 2 (Independent) 3.5/5 This Montreal-based noisy rock band storms out of the gates strong with “This Is Why,” the song taking an almost-surf-rock guitar line and filtering it through shoegaze production and a ragged garage-rock/indie-rock sound. It’s a stellar way to start off their second album, and it doesn’t stop there. […]

The Camosun College Pride Collective is currently working on a proposal that would see the implementation of gender-neutral washrooms on both campuses. Gender-neutral, also known as gender-inclusive, washrooms are washrooms that can be used by those who identify as male, female, or outside the gender binary. This would be good news for transgender students, who, […]
