Talk about cult classic. Pacific Seaweeds: A Guide to Common Seaweeds of the West Coast was originally published 15 years back, to the delight of… one would imagine very few, as this is about as niche as niche gets. But here we are, a decade and a half later, and the book has sold 10,000 […]

Open Space: Arresting addicts not helpful for anyone

I’m not saying that students should be snorting coke off desks in the middle of class or shooting up in the bathroom of Fisher, but heroin, cocaine, and other illicit drugs absolutely need to be decriminalized. It’s a no-brainer. Portugal, for example, has seen drug-related deaths drop from around 400 a year to around 290 […]

To See or Not to See: Over the moon for Moonstruck

Moonstruck 4.5/5 I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: no other genre of film has more potential to be transcendental than the rom-com, which is why it’s also so easy for rom-coms to go wildly and disastrously astray. Moonstruck (1987) lands itself a spot among the transcendental; it’s in the upper echelon of […]

Of the Land – local indigenous voices: Why oh why, oh Canada?

While parades unfold, barbecues blaze, and fireworks launch in celebration of Canada Day, I find it more important than ever to critically engage with Canadian identity. The reality is that we are a diverse country with a vast array of identities, knit together on contiguous land yet apart because of our different access to power: […]

The Bi-weekly Gamer: Something new with Overwatch

I’ve been playing a lot of the new game Overwatch. As a first-person shooter with aspects of LoL, Team Fortress 2, and Call of Duty thrown in, it’s honestly a good game. (I didn’t think I would ever be saying that, as I despise Blizzard, the game company that made Overwatch, due to their policies, […]

Consilience Under Our Bed (independent) 4/5 Edmonton’s Consilience is the project of multi-instrumentalist Tasy Hudson, a solo musician with, among other instruments, a guitar, a synthesizer, and a loop pedal. On Under Our Bed I can hear what Hudson is trying to get across with her soft tones and gentle melodies. The addition of instruments […]
