some buddies from Freedomize put on an art/fashion show to raise funds for some good cause and i missed it. but my wife got to go. and some of the art rocked. it was all formatted 1" x 1"... check out the lego ghandi too. and i can't find the website with all the details hence the sketchy 'for some good cause' line.
but i really like this piece of work and i have no idea who did it. if anyone knows, please leave a comment or email me... thanks.
on tour with colin, rockin the supermarket on sept 12th. thanks to everyone who came out - what an amazing audience for our third show ever! 150 people? and all cheering like banshees? you kids are too kind. check out colin on myspace (www.myspace.com/colinmunroe) if you want to hear the sort of thing we're rocking. i don't feel bad plugging him coz he rocks and i'm just the bass player. but yeah, i like to thing i help bring the rock to the live show... even from behind my dark curtain. yeah, that's me on the right of the shot.

this labyrinth table is in the window of a design store called 'space' on queen street east right near our house... i really like this table though it does remind me of the ikea labyrinth rug that i'm not so sure about.
last night in toronto, 'the bish' kak NT Wright spoke at a club called revival... at an event organized by Empire Remixed. so when I arrived someone asked me if I was a big NT fan. I admitted that I'd never read anything of his and that I was really there mostly coz cool people told me about it and that I should probably go (thanks mr. rennie).
anyway, having attended and not really liking the idea of being a fan, I'd have to say I'm on my way to being converted... really appreciated his thoughts and theology, certainly a cat worth looking up and reading more of. I have a few questions regarding his answer to a question (asked by John Franklin of Imago) about the role of art in the church which I guess I'll have to email 'the Bish' about after I get a hold of and read the chapter entitled 'Beauty' from his new book. Anyone got a copy they want to lend me?
see more pics from the event here: nathan's flickr pics and/or read more about it here on nathan's blog.
jonny baker posted this to flickr... maybe a design i might imitate at the in-laws farm where I promised to help them build a labyrinth on their property sometime... don't know the location but it looks loverly!
i've always loved ex-buildings, and the stains they leave, expecially when they were built first and added on to, then removed leaving scars in the newer building's side. the sun was in the perfect spot the other day to describe the dimension of a possible foundation...
more flickr pics added... trying to set up a myspace band page so those of you in webland can hear my latest audio experiments/play. throw me an email if you want a demo disc and we'll make plans... or wait for updates re:my myspace page.
