!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: TR/ST releases video for ‘IRIS’ from ‘The Destroyer – 2’ !!

Check out the latest from TR/ST‘s album Destroyer – 2! Iris, directed by Muted Windows, premiered today over on V Mag.

Capping off a five-year hiatus, TR/ST’s Destroyer diptych reflects an odyssey of emotional and sonic growth. As the one-man, neo-darkwave outfit told V earlier this year, “I hope [that the listener has] some sort of strong feeling. I think indifference is the worst thing…You don’t need permission from the ‘big person above’ to make a record, put it out, go ahead and do some shows, and connect with people.”

!! OMG, it’s our 2019 Pride Playlist !!

OMG.BLOG 2019 Pride Playlist
Toronto-based artist and writer Max Mohenu writes about creating the OMG.BLOG 2019 Pride Playlist.

For the first time in years, Toronto Pride feels hopeful, vibrant, fresh, and brand new. There’s amazing energy in the city fueling work to bring more inclusive artist lineups to the forefront, giving queer people of color an alternative to the corporate-sponsored nonsense and all-white party spaces.

There’s a sisterhood in the Toronto queer nightlife. It’s the thing that keeps us sane, safe, and constantly pushing creativity and growth in the city. This year is a chosen family affair and it feels so good.

The OMG.BLOG 2019 Pride Playlist is an homage to artists I love in the city, performers coming down for Pride, and beautiful energies that will form throughout the month. A little bit of house, club, some hot ballroom tracks, and a whole lot of love for this years festivities. Happy Pride!

After the jump you’ll find the full playlist, along with some quick words about some of my fav tracks off the playlist. Some of my choices were inspired by people, places, sounds, and feelings I’m bringing into Pride this year.

!! OMG, this Alberta woman crocheted an entire skeleton and its internal organs !!

Shanell Papp from Lethbridge, Canada decided to explore the human body by picking a method that excited her just as much as the theme: Crochet.

In total, her project LAB took her about eight months. Four of them to make the skeleton and another four to create the internal organs. “I was curious about the human body and I wanted to make a human body. I was interested in medical history and how we attempt to solve everything, but we are fragile.” To make it as close to the real deal as possible, the artist borrowed a human skeleton from a university and collected anatomical textbooks.

Check out more of Shanell‘s incredible work after the jump!
