Occasionally I (Mike) will get some odd requests to photograph some odd things. ‘Odd’ for some people, but really to me, things that are ‘odd’ are very very ‘rad’. Such as this. The Late Late Breakfast Show — a sketch comedy troupe based in Calgary, they create very hilarious, and sometimes/often/mostly offensive sketches. One very delicious thing is that they heavily incorporate live music/song in their sketches which is a treat for the the ears and the funny bone. Anyhoo, this is from a show from way back in February called ‘Power Ballad.’ I had the pleasure to see the show and it was immensely entertaining (and was sold out basically every night). Really the pictures don’t do these guys justice, you really have to go check ‘em out here:  www.latelatebreakfastshow.com and on their facebook page ;)

We have had the good fortune to document the amazing Phantom Wing Pre-Demolition Project at the historic King Edward School in Marda Loop. From the minds that brought you WRECK City, Phantom Wing inhabits the soon to be demolished 1960s ‘brick’ wing of the school. The King Edward School (managed by http://cspaceprojects.com/)  is slated to become an arts hub/incubator of sorts in the very near future — aaaand it’s already doin’ pretty good, having hosted numerous arts events already.

Needless to say we’re pretty excited about these happenings in Calgary and their growing frequency.

The kids are alright ;)

‘It’s important that we not only consider the final result or public presentation of these art projects, but also the processes of production and work behind them. What do the ways in which the artists work together and form relationships offer as future aspirations?’  - Andrea Williamson, http://phantomwing.wordpress.com/2013/09/26/notes-on-the-archive/

Last weekend Mike rushed over to check out the final day of a incredible public art project — probably one of, if not the THE largest of it’s kind in Calgary’s history. Installations were all-encompassing, where throngs of public could openly meander through living rooms and exposed foundations, travel across carpet-clad hanging bridge structures, aaaaaand experience a CAMERA OBSCURA! The soon-to-be demolished residential block became a blur of art gallery/amusement park.

Please check out their website, definitely read the ABOUT page because the scale of the project was too grand to cover in one day!

From http://wreckcityproject.wordpress.com: 

WRECK CITY: An Epilogue for 809 is a community-based art experiment transforming 9 houses, 3 garages, and a greenhouse scheduled for demolition into temporary art, installation, and performance spaces. The biggest project of its type in the history of Calgary (perhaps even all of Canada), Eight Artist-Curators have invited 100+ Artists, Musicians, and Performers to participate. Artist participants were free to radically alter the architecture of entire houses, re-shaping the homes using materials from the houses themselves, without need for repair at the end of the project. This newly formed community of artists produced a neighbourhood of magical and critically-engaging spaces, made possible only by the freedom of working inside houses soon to be destroyed. You can see some of the finished works here.

Instigated as an epilogue for 809 Galleryone of Calgary’s influential garage galleries (scheduled for demolition with the rest of the homes), WRECK CITY is a swan song for the history of the neighbourhood, a playful comment on Calgary’s demolition addiction, and an opportunity to cultivate a new community of Artists amidst the rubble of an entire block of houses.

When we received the invitation to Kay + Jason’s rehearsal dinner in the mail, I knew it was going to be a gooder. You could just tell.

They had a lovely and intimate dinner with their closest family and friends at Mercato.
The family-style (and delicious!!) dinner, lots of laughter, and a warm summer night was just a perfect mix.

Just look at all the fun:
