As of next Sunday, Glam Gam Productions is no more. Forget the Box has a wicked awesome write-up on their latest show, Tits the Season. Check their show, LAST EVER, on Dec 9, 10 and 11.
If I could throw my hat in the ring for a quick sec, I gotta say I'll miss them. They were a rare mix of artistic integrity, audaciousness and total fucking folly. I love it when people can REMEMBER LAUGHTER. Fuck high-brow: these kids would go into the woods, looking all wood thug-like, and take pics of themselves with neon accoutrements hanging from various parts of their bodies. This is art my friends. Anyway.
Julie from the trio of
nipple triple threats had this to say about the parting...
"We have decided to stop producing shows in order to pursue other projects right now. Michael has decided to follow his childhood dream and move to Ottawa to pursue a career in real estate. Sarah and myself have decided to follow him there and join the Conservative party," she said in a serious interview, in all seriousness.
"But seriously," Julie adds, "we just need time to focus on other artistic projects, work on videos and apply for artist grants."
Thanks to midnightpoutine.ca for the pic.
RIP, Glam Gam.

The HTMLles fest is still going on, and cyborgs make it worth your while. The fest name is a funny play on words. It means: ELLEs, as in HER. HTMLles. Get it?
Also, if you know any womyns that could be potentially THE BEST EVER (technology-oriented lady): Fast Company, a magazine, is looking for submissions. Push your fav femmes forward! Now here is a pixelated womyn, for your enjoyment (obvi).

Oh Look! (also: do you like it when words are randomly Capitalized? Me

also, this video (of Lovers performing Peppermint in September in a city that is not Montreal) makes me ____________. Mucho mucho mega more, children.

Glam Gam's back with the unholiest of high holiday presentations. Their Hallow's Eve show promises elaborate sexy/ghouly costumes, Weekend at Bernie's inspiration and of course, lotsa sexy things. Here is an interview I did with them...
What are your fave costumes this year? Should they be scary or sexy?
Actually, haven't even had time to think much about our actual Halloween
costumes this year since we've been knee-deep in preparation for the
show, which will be filled with elaborate costumes that we've whipped up
for the occasion (from sexy to disgusting!). It's just hard to choose
what to dress as for Halloween when we're the type of people who like to
dress up in animal costumes just to hang out in the park on a Tuesday.
Fave scary movie?
Weekend at Bernie's. Those neon bermudas are really terrifying!
Fave Halloweeen dance move?
We used to do the Monster Mash until someone from the radical monster
community informed us that it was monster appropriation.... Now we're
looking for a new groove!
If you were in a scary movie, what would it be about and what would it be called?
A coming-of-age tale, beautiful and piercing, cryptic and satisfying
-- Julie Paquet's Haunted Vagina.
What's this thing you got planned, in 25 words or less?
Child's play turned into foreplay, nightmares turned into wet dreams; this is our best show yet, guaranteed to get a rise... even from the dead!

Wouldn't that make a great title for a cheeky sitcom about a boy named Corrupt, played by Trey Smith and modelled after fun family values' tv from the 80s? YAMAN.
This morning I've got a video for you about the not so fun family values of Toronto police, recored for posterity in countless vids. Here, queer activists PolitiQ and detainees speak to their experience during the mass arrests that populated the G20 summit in June. Theatrical dramatizations are = heart.
