Subject:Review: Stargazer, by Von Allan
Posted by:ed_rex.
Time:1:50 pm.

Looking at the stars in black and white

 

Once a mainstay of popular culture, truly family-friendly or all-ages entertainment has become a rarity in North American media nowadays (with the notable exception of animated films).

That sort of inclusive work seems particularly rare in what ought to be as all-ages-friendly a medium as animation, its close artistic relative, the humble comic-book. But in North America, for a variety of commercial-historical reasons, "comic" has become almost synonymous with "super-hero", with a small (and happily, a growing) sub-set of "alternative" books addressing a broader audience than teenagers who love fight scenes.

So it was a great pleasure to discover Von Allan's Stargazer, an adventure story meant to entertain anyone "from eight to eighty", in glorious black and white, no less.

Subject:The Art of Von Allan at Ottawa's La Dolce Vita
Posted by:vonandmoggy.
Time:4:34 pm.
Mood:artistic.
Hey there,

I'm an Ottawa-based cartoonist and graphic novelist with an upcoming art show at La Dolce Vita beginning on May 19th. The show will feature a lot of my art as well as pages samples from the graphic novel that I've recently completed. I should add that the story is currently being serialized as a webcomic on GirlAMatic.com (a very cool non-misogynist collective).

La Dolce Vita is a really nifty restaurant in the heart of Ottawa's Little Italy. And, best of all, it features a gluten-free menu on top of gluten-based foods. So if you or someone you know has a gluten alergy or Celiac's disease, it's a great place to go and eat.

The event poster, designed by Chris Tompkins, is below. My wife and I will definitely be there on the evening of May 19th (yay for openings) and then periodically off and on over the next two weeks 'til the show wraps up. Oh, I created a Facebook group for the art show, too. Yes, geeky, I know.

Subject:Making Necrophiliac
Posted by:juhl.
Time:4:25 pm.
The musical/comedy/cabaret/not-sure-what-genre-it-is "Making Necrophiliac" is doing a few things. 

Tomorrow (Wednesday, December 12th), an interview is at 3:30 pm, on CKCU, 93.1 FM.  Myself (actor in the play) and the director (Maureen), will be babbling inanely and doing excerpts from "Making Necrophiliac".  It should be highly amusing, and possibly disturbing.

Tomorrow night (Wednesday night), we'll be performing "Schpanked" and "Bad Actor Blues" from "Making Necrophiliac" at the following event:

..ism(e)x8: performance cabaret
December 12
8 PM doors open
SAW Gallery

Tickets by donation

It's pay what you can or a donation to the Food Bank!  A conglomeration of wacky cabaret and general performances.  Hope to see you there!

MAKING NECROPHILIAC

A New Musical

by Maureen Chaume    Music by Guy Del Villano

"Making Necrophiliac"  is a new musical comedy with an old-style charm, and a bit of B horror for fun. A mismatched group of performers put on an avante-garde show tune, called Necrophiliac. With a plague of mishaps, a big storm brewing, and love gone awry ... how will the show ever go on?

And what about the corpse??

Come and enjoy a delightful night of slapstick, ribaldry, and music!

Wednesday, OCTOBER 10
Thursday, OCTOBER 11
Friday, OCTOBER 12

318 Lisgar at Bank (Upstairs)
Ottawa, ON

Curtain at 8:00 PM (Doors open 7:30 PM)

Tickets $20

$8 at the Door

-Benefit for - Crichton Cultural Community Centre organizers of
the Ottawa Lumière Festival
-Eats by - Luxe Bistro, Stella, Blue Cactus
-Beats - This months giveaways are mixtapes from the local event TIMEKODE. 
In house Beats by
Emily Jones
--w/ long awaited Special Guest Zattar
-Vernissage for - Eric Chan
******************************************************************************************

The Beneficiaries:

I had heard massive boasts of recognition for the Crichton Cultural Community Centre and the work they do.  I had seen posters all over town telling me about the Lumière Festival, a community event devoted to lanterns, performers and community art.  Only recently can I really say that I found out that the two were so closely tied.  This community centre and festival are bringing illumination to a part of our city and scene that needs their passion and exuberance.  The Crichton Cultural Community Centre is located at 200 Crichton - 2nd Floor (Avon Lane entrance), and the Lumière Festival is in New Edinburgh/Stanley Park, August 11th 2007.

The Eats:

-Luxe Bistro
(47 York Street - 613-241-8805 -
www.luxebistro.com) - My very first experience in this sharply styled bistro was with a friend who was satisfying her need for steak.  Being vegetarian, I did not taste it but her satisfaction and contentment lead me to believe that she was pleased with her meal.  The samples from Luxe Bistro will do more than please you April 6th at WB&E.

-Stella Osteria
(81 Clarence Street -
613-241-2200 - www.stellaosteria.com) - I attended a co-workers birthday dinner at Stella Osteria about 8 months ago.  It was my first time in the restaurant and also one of my first times dinning out in a long time.  The chef prepared a meal that suited my "special needs" with a flair that most vegetarians don't expect.  Expect great WB&E samplings on April 6th from Stella.

-Blue Cactus
(2 Byward Market Street- 613-241-7061 -
www.bluecactusbarandgrill.com) - Blue Cactus has some fresh fruit daiquiris that stun and amaze.  I know they have some amazing food too, but every time I walk by their big bay windows I only have eyes for all the long stemmed glasses filled with fresh fruit and booze.  We won't get fruity boozy samples at WB&E on April 6th because that's illegal, but I will finally see the great food from Blue Cactus

The Beats:

This month the musical giveaways are provided by the local event TIMEKODE (
www.timekode.com- mixtapes will be on hand and will go quickly.  

Always swanky in house beats.

Vernissage for:

Eric Chan's work struck me all at once at a fundraising event for SAW gallery in the late part of last year.  Deep wells of blackness or whiteness made striking by the creatures of spreading and creeping color.  Come and see it!

-Benefit for - Opera Lyra

-Featuring work by: Erin English
******************************************************************************************

The Beneficiaries:

I have a friend whose father once (maybe twice) went on the most passionate rant about a production that he was involved in with a local Opera company.  He told about how he was going to be really getting into the role.  Growing a beard, living the part, getting really deep into the role.  Opera Lyra has a way of inspiring everyone involved, including extras.  Check out the upcoming March 2nd World Beats and Eats benefit as well as the Diva Auction, April 21st.

The Eats:

-Infusion Bistro
(825 Bank Street - 234-2412) - This cozy bistro sits on Bank St. in the Glebe amongst a selection of other restaurants quite similar in style and cuisine.  The defining characteristics of this locale though is the stellar staff and the creativity of the cuisine.  On March 2nd we will be sampled their cuisine, sadly though not their staff. 

-Bento Sushi
(606 Rideau St.- 613-562-2563) - With their second donation Bento Sushi will be sampling us a selection sushi that World Beats and Eats has long been waiting for.  Our first Sushi donation in 14 Months.

-The Roses Cafe
(1285 Wellington St.- 613-798-9191--523 Gladstone St. - 613-233-5574 -
www.rosescafe.com/) - I was at the Bluesfest two years ago, a bit tipsy, wandering the food tent when I out off to my left I heard the words "Butter Chicken".  Me being a vegetarian I cant ignore a combo like that.  I wandered toward the tent and although I could not gastronomically partake in the "Butter Chicken",  my olfactory sensations ranked this restaurant as a star flavor purveyor.  Samples will be available @ WB&E on March 2nd.

Subject:Cartooning Courses
Posted by:dabunz.
Time:12:59 pm.
I'm offering two new cartooning courses, page 28, starting next week. They are both about learning to draw cartoons, comic strips and comic books. One is Wednesday evenings, 7-9pm at Glebe Collegiate, for 7 weeks, and the other is Thursday evenings 7-9pm, at Bell High School, for 7 weeks, too.

I hope I can get the turnout I've been getting so far, for my Intro to Art program, at the Ottawa School of Art. Yes, these two new courses aren't free, I know, but the price works out to about $15 a week.

Come on out, have some fun, and maybe learn a few things about the art of cartooning.

The Beneficiaries:

This month we are going to be giving to two groups.  February is a month that is all about couples and this month we have coupled together two beneficiaries for your philanthropic pleasure.  Oxfam Canada's objective is that of ending poverty and injustice, and have made an impact of the Ottawa arts and cultural community through their event Music 4 ChangeOttawa School of Art's objective is that of teaching and promoting the arts, and outside of the obvious contribution of artists to the Ottawa arts and cultural community they also organize the Art Bus, returning this fall.  Both quite noble.  This is the first beneficiary paring of many that are to come throughout the year.  

The Eats:

-La Dolce Vita
(180 Preston Street - 613-223-6329) - This Preston street restaurant has always caught my eye with their sunken patio in the summer months and their patio Christmas tree in the winter months.  On February 2nd we will be sampling their eye catching pizza at the O.S.A.

-Agave Grill
(1331 Wellington St.- 613-728-5588) - Last year at this time the winter months were bother some and we received a bit (a whole lot) of a warm up with the salsas, and dips from this amazing southwestern restaurant.  This year on February 2nd we will again be warmed up with Agave Grill's heat at the O.S.A.

-Cocoa Camino
(

If you're 15-25, queer or queer-friendly, and interested in art, sign up for my course at the Ottawa School of Art. It starts this Tuesday Jan 16, from 7pm-9pm, and it's free.

Did I mention it's free? Absolutely free. Free registration and free art materials. This is an initiative funded by the OSA, Pink Triangle and various other local companies.

You don't have to any experience or aptitude; a desire to learn how to use inks, pastels, acrylic paints and lots of other mediums is all you need.

******************************************************************************************
The Beneficiary:

The Great Canadian Theatre Company has been on my art radar since I randomly stumbled by their Gladstone location after a rather great night of studio party hoping. Since then the World Beats and Eats event has been lucky enough to be the recipient of a GCTC Season Subscription donation each month. We raffle this item off with our other great prizes but are always in awe at how generous they are with us. Now we get to be generous back. January 5th is WB&E for GCTC!!!

The Eats:

-Thyme & Again
(1255 Wellington Street West.- 613-722-6277) - I first experienced the food from this Ottawa catering and fine foods purveyor at a Holt Renfrew Shopping experience. The event was invite only but a colleague of mine was generous enough to give me their invite. On January 5th everyone is invited to sample the truffles from Thyme & Again at World Beats and Eats.

-Par-Fyum
(70 Promenade du Portage - 819-770-1908) - In the Spring of 2005 I made a delivery to Par-Fyum for the fine food shop I was working for at the time. The space was still under construction at the time but it was easy to see that this restaurant would be a very exciting edition to fine dining in the region.

-B.Goods (a bakery)
(b.goods@sympatico.ca) - These cookies, available only at Natural Food Pantry (126 York St.), are a decadent vegans dream. These dairy and egg free cookies are just as chewy and rich as your *other* favorite cookie. Made with whole grain flours, non-hydrogenated oils and organic ingredients, you could almost consider them healthy.

-Elgin St. Freehouse
(296 Elgin St - 613-233-5525) - The Elgin St. Freehouse is located in the space that used to be called the EuroStar. The contrast between the two is easy to see in the new decor and on January 5th we will be able to taste the difference.

The Beats:

This month the musical giveaways are provided by local favorites Kelp Records - with “Will the Bytown be Unbroken” 12 Year Anniversary Compilation

Always swanky in house beats.

*****************************************************************************************

The Beneficiary: 

In my first year in Ottawa, I was unknowingly blessed with under-employment. Being under employed left me with copious amounts of time to explore the region with all its culture, nature and people.  Being under employed I had little in the form of income. This lead to my love, need, and desire for the artist run centres that often offer free openings and exhibits.  One of those innumerable nights of openings I found my self in a gallery filled with piercing orgasmic laughter, emiting from speaker boxes mounted below a collection of rotating clown heads.  Very distubing.  Very wonderful.  This was my first Axeneo7 experience and I still have the handbill.  October 25th Axeneo7 is also holding this years installment of their annual fundraiser, The Portrait Gallery II.
 
The Eats:
 
-The Table Vegetarian Restaurant
(www.thetablerestaurant.com - 1230 Wellington St.- 613-729-5973) -The Table makes a second donation to World Beats and Eats.  The last time we were blessed with a donation from this westend vegetarian staple (and just great food) we had leftovers.  Lets once again hope to be buried in the mountains of great food from The Table on October 6th.
 
-Feleenas Comida Mexicana
(742 Bank Street -  613-233-2010 - www.feleenas.com) - This Glebe based traditional Mexican restaurant is popular in the summer with their fresh salsas and guacamole on the patio.  As we enter fall remember the summer heat with Feleena's Mexican fare.
 
The Beats:

This month the musical giveaways are provided by Putumayo World Music- Putumayo has been a staple of international sounds for quite some time. This month they are going to supply us with a musical food sampler, Tastes of the World.

Zeke and Dixon together for an exhibiton is going to be my dream show come true.  Zeke's work is so wonderful and sharp that I have had it at every World Beats and Eats this year in the form of his amazings shirts (generously donated). His work is the best selling WB&E artists artwork to date, selling out during the Clutch Art group show last December.   
I had been stalking Dixon for quite sometime before I actually met him.  I first noticed his amazing street work,  I then came across the copious amounts of breathtaking consignment work he has done for local businesses under another name.  I was then told that the excentric man that frequented two of my Byward hangouts was the artist in question.  I was suprised that such amazing work was all done by a guy with a mullet. I then introduced myself.

Subject:Looking For Artists
Posted by:hexpiritus.
Time:12:04 pm.
I'm looking for anime/manga, comic, or portrait artists who are also into the gothic culture, either through their lifestyle or through their art.

I've having a show on Mon. Sept. 4 @ Avant-Garde Bar selling zines and chapbooks for my small press, having local industrial and electronica DJs, showing a local B-grade slasher movie, and having a "bad goth poetry" contest.

In addition, I would like to have artists on a panel to be able to draw sketches, small portraits, or "convention badges"-like illustrations for any attendee of the event. What does the artist get out of it? Well, they get a free drink for participating, and they can only draw one free picture per attendee, so if that person wants more art, they have to pay for it. :) Secondly, the artists are allowed to bring any finished work, prints, and the like to sell at the show.

Check out http://www.nekusis.com and http://community.livejournal.com/darkottawa/582178.html for more details. Respond to this post if you're interested, or email me at nekusis@gmail.com.

Subject:Graphic novel art show

Mood:chipper.


(Just make with the clicky for a larger image. It also show's Rasputin's address and the show's schedule.)

The show features pages from the graphic novel I'm currently working on. Very briefly, the story deals with themes of schizophrenia and abuse and is definitely in the 'slice of life' category. If you're into books like Strangers in Paradise, and like indy comics in general, then hopefully you'll like my stuff.

Oh, and I'll also be a part of Bride of Dark Carnival coming up at Barrymore's and Zaphod's. With thanks to dirtybunny for the invite.
