Our Lady Peace

One of my old favorite rock bands is performing tonight at the Ex.  Let’s take a journey down memory lane.  I’m sure some of these songs will spark memories of your joyful youth.  Here are my top 12 Our Lady Peace songs.  In no perticular order, if I had to pick a favorite, I’d have to go with 4am.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

85 years old, working.  No intentions to stop.
From absolutely nothing to a 3 star Michelin Restaurant. (highest rating)
70 years of repetition to create a perfect technique.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi was 1 hour and 23 minutes of pure jaw dropping inspiration.
I really hate using that word so much these days, but to watch an 85 year old man create the best sushi in the world, is well, inspiring.  I recommend this movie to anyone looking for a good eye-opening film.

Plus I love Sushi.  To see the proccess this man goes through to create the perfect peice each and everytime is beyond respectable.  Sushi can be seen 2 ways.  Fast and mediocre or expensive and delicate.  Sushi has grown to be extremely popular and to watch the best in the world is something else.

The movie is short, and I don’t want to ruin anything.  All I’m going to say is this was one of the best, if not THE best documentaries I’ve ever seen.

OTB

OTB was started by 4 individuals in Saskatoon, back in March of 2010.  With nothing but a couple of laptops, a case of coronas and an internet connection.  Nothing was to really come out of it except the idea to pass on creative and inspiring information to anyone who had the slightest interest in our ideas.  It’s been almost 2 and a half years since OTB was born.  In those 29 months a lot has changed.  JMak, Bryce, and Kyle have all moved.  JMak is now in Calgary, Bryce in Toronto (previously Edmonton) and Kyle is back In Los Angeles.  OTB has been a big part of our lives for the past 2 years and will always be a big part of who we are.  We’ve been putting everything on hold for the past few months to re-group and re-evaluate.  In the next few weeks you will be seeing a lot of changes.  For those who have stuck with us and still visit the site everyday, Thank you.  Tell your friends we’re back.  Like us on FB, Follow us on Twitter, Stalk us on Instagram.. Say whats up in Real Life.. and let’s continue to share creative information.

Black Heart.

I’m sure by now we have all heard of The Weeknd. He mesmerized all of us with his “House Of Balloons”  debut album that was released back in March of 2011. I remember it like yesterday. Sam and I were sitting in a hotel room in Redondo Beach, California when he showed me track #4 off HOB called “The Morning” only days after the album dropped. It was amazing, we couldn’t stop listening too it. Pure Memories. (How about that drive to San Diego, Sam?) Since then, The Weeknd has released 2 more surprisingly unsigned albums that are still constantly on repeat through my speakers. I think I speak for most of us..

If you follow The Weeknd enough, you’d probably be familiar with his posse/crew, that go by the name “XO”. Through the XO crew, I have personally found some amazing music, just by simply paying visits to their Tumblr pages, twitter etc. Recently, I heard friends talking of and listening to a supposedly new addition to the XO crew. Well, let me introduce you to Julian..

He just released a new mixtape called “Black Heart” that im sure you’ll be a huge fan of. If you’ve ever enjoyed anything from The Weeknd, Dropxlife or anyone else intertwined with XO, this should be another album you might want to check out.. (Link Below)
