From the roaring woods of Montreal comes one of my favourite bands who truly make me proud to be Canadian. Arcade Fire’s recent collaboration with Google Chrome for the song We Used to Wait is a prime example of how this band stems beyond the music and dive into many different creative and artistic outlets to give their fans something more. The interactive video entitled The Wilderness Downtown made me feel as if the band personally gave me a piece of history from my childhood by using various features of Google. It’s hard to explain. Just do it and watch the magic appear before your eyes. May your childhood live on: http://thewildernessdowntown.com/
I support Canadians and I support homeboys that are super rad too. That’s where DWW comes into play. Their brand new video for Whoa is Me is a play on the famous saying “Woe is Me”, so if you don’t get the song and the meaning behind it, just go up to one of the guys next time they play in your town and ask them. They’ll be the first to give a solid explanation. While I’ve enjoyed their previous videos, I remember hearing about DWW through this song, so for me this a staple. The video was filmed right here in Toronto at Sound Academy (which they recently sold out). Heads up, North America, the boys are hitting the road with 3OH!3 and HelloGoodbye. You should check dates on the boy’s website to see if they are coming through your hood. You’ll be in for a real fun night (and that’s a Billy guarantee).
Back to School
If you’re wondering what/where I studied? I studied MIT (Media, Information, Technoculture) at the University of Western Ontario and they were some of the best years of my life. Look up the innovative faculty and see why I think it is so magical. Note: check out the class listings, some don’t sound real but they are: http://www.fims.uwo.ca/
Stay tuned for a graduation video… it’s coming up in October!
I’m an online shopper. Rarely purchase but enjoy a solid web browse. This site is great for that. Not to mention I heard about this brand on one of my personal favourite fashion forums (FFF-haha) Lookbook.nu. I love when companies take the initiative to create cool showcases of their lines that are specific and appealing to those who purchase it. If you’re into Nylon Magazine fashion, you will LOVE Wildfox. Check it out for yourself: http://www.wildfoxcouture.com/
On a side note, the opening video features music by Dorion. “Somewhere” feat. B Rad & Jenny and the tune alone is intriguing. Check Dorion out at: http://www.myspace.com/djdorion
