I have come across a lot of talented people over the years, everyone from screen printers, to turntablist, to comic book artist to video producers. They have done a lot for me, so why not try and give back to them.
I also want to give exposure to all the talent we have, if it helps people get noticed, if it gets more people to show up at there venue, if it gets people to download a track off itunes... here you go!
I like to call this lil movement O.A.K. (Ontario Artistic Kinship)
This blog is for announcements, up coming concerts for local talents, interviews, cd releases, profiles, art work, art shows, ... you name it. I love posting videos, so if you have one, let me know!
Now for the who's who on the title wall...

I went to public school with LAW, we have been listening to hip hop since the early 80s man, no jive!

On the top to your right is SKULLMAN from Boxwars! Boxwars is the next big thing, no wait it IS A BIG THING! You wear armor made of cardboard and you go to war bashing the shit out of each other!

The middle on the left is my good friend William Primrose of Rattailfilms along with video producer Phil Sportel. Will is co-owner of this company along with my girlfriend Cindy Choy.
The company has a great studio, and equipment to shoot everything from music videos to commercials and at a price that is very hard to beat.
They specialize in working with independent musicians and film directors.
Phil is a very talented director, he has made videos for Colin Munroe and Johnny Polygon and many more. He has had his videos play on Much Music, and were featured on Kayne Wests and Perez Hiltons blogs.
