JTG has lived all over this country, continent, world, but keeps coming back to Calgary because she truly believes it might be the centre of the universe. She enjoys people watching and adventure finding, and you can usually find her taking to strangers and getting into trouble around town with her bearded companion Pete (face) and Carol (beard).

The Indigo Girls bring us peace and love

  It was high school. It was the 90’s. It was awkward. I had this epic English teacher, who looking back was probably no older then I am now, but seemed older then time itself. She was always rattling on about poetry and novels and crap. One day she played for us the Indigo Girls, Continue Reading »

Can’t buy nothing, buy some things… sort of

Trends are great, especially when they’re somewhat philanthropic. Even better, when those philanthropic-do-gooder trends become a permanent part of our every day lives, like riding bikes, vegetarianism and whale saving. In Calgary, we start trends and that’s what makes us awesome. My sister called me the other day to draw my attention to the recent Continue Reading »

Like a virgin: Tips for your first tattoo

I love tattoos. I love them on me, I love them on you, I love them on a damn fox in a stupid box with effing sox or whatever. I think the tattoo is probably one of the greatest things ever invented, at least in terms of self expression and self-inflicted pain. Here in Calgary Continue Reading »

What’s up with those GMOs, yo

Genetically Modified food has been a hot topic over the past couple of weeks. The term “GMO” which stands for Genetically Modified Organism, flew around the world after something called the Monsanto Protection Act passed, not with out controversy, in the United States. My favourite depiction of how the act was passed was portrayed on Continue Reading »

Get your pleasure spiked with pain: a look at running

  Construction Season, Festival Season, Hot-as-balls Season… summer has a lot of different names. But one of my favourite descriptors for summer is Running Season; the season I love to hate. Last year I decided to take up running, primarily because I’m a masochist with addictions issues. Initially I found myself in tears and tantrums, Continue Reading »

Two tickets to nowhere: DIY staycation adventures

  I know it’s just over a week away and I’ve already started dreaming about the long weekend. Who doesn’t love a long weekend? And of course if the weather holds, this May long will have us saying “Old Man Winter who?”. But if you’re like me, any long weekend proposes the opportunity to get Continue Reading »

Get down with the Get down

  x Decidely Jazz Danceworks (DJD) is at it again! Those funky-funksters are up to no good be-bopping and hip-hopping al over the place. Last week I had the opportunity to visit the studio and got a sneak peak of Turn Up the Get Down, DJD’s newest creation to hit the stage. Just watch Continue Reading »

Love art in Calgary

Okay, we may be passing on the title of Cultural Capital of Canada, but that doesn’t mean we all have to go back to pretending we’re not cultural rock stars. Because we are. To celebrate our city’s more artistic side, and help us forget that our cultural crown is being ripped from our heads, fellow Continue Reading »
