2007 was fun.
The next two weeks Kate Hollefreund will be in charge of Carload of Whatever which is very exciting. Kate used to do an electronic show on CFUV and was our former volunteer coordinator. If you love electro-pop tune the heck in.
I'm back in Ontario under a mountain of snow. The above photo is by Eric Kaluzny and appears here without his permission. Eric makes art in different places and maybe in 2008 we can convince him to make art in Victoria.
See you in 2008.
