WHAT DEFINED YOUR ’08?

by the QC staff What is the light of 2008? What a funny question to ask considering that all of us have lived dynamic and complicated years. Regardless, we’ve assembled a list of defining tracks and articles of culture that kept the QC collective sane in ’08. Artist: Regina Spektor Song: Ne Me Quitte Pas [...]

QC INTERVIEW: WAYNE COYNE OF THE FLAMING LIPS

by kevin diamond Let me say this: Wayne Coyne can talk. The hardest part about this interview was trying to find an appropriate moment to ask a question. Let me also say this: the man is as funny, humble, and optimistic as you’d probably think. In our pre-Christmas interview, we talk about Oklahoma City, why [...]

WINTER CITY

by cheryl santa maria Winter City is a fourteen day festival that celebrates art, culture and food.  If you’re in Toronto between January 30 and February 12, you gotta check out some of the events.  A highlight for me is always the outdoor spectacle that takes place at Nathan Philips Square.

Real instruments are lacking but it’s dance season so revel in the splendor of music technology. Enjoy more music we didn’t post on (until [...]

BUILDING PROJECTIONS DONE RIGHT

by bmac I stumbled on this video last night and was pretty blown away.  I’ve seen people project random shit on buildings in NYC before, but it’s usually just crazy colors and patterns.  These fools have taken it to the next level by incorporating 3D projectors and making building-specific video presentations.  I love the one where [...]

QC CRITIC: THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON

Scott Fitzgerald and directed by David Fincher, this is a project containing all the [...]
