Raymond Aubin is an artist in contemporary photography who also writes critiques and reviews in visual and media arts. Imagine being able to see a whole movie at once, collapsed into a single still image.

Walking into LOCAL Public Eatery is a different experience than at other Ottawa restaurants. The difference is barely recognizable, but it’s there. The cool, modern décor is reminiscent of eateries in Toronto or Montreal while the warm, inviting staff make you feel at home. My eyes were drawn to colorful vintage fluorescent lights and the open kitchen at the back. A cozy and casual vibe was palpable and I immediately felt at ease despite the bustling crowd and hurry of servers around me. Upon arrival, the hostess let me know... | Continue reading article

Tyler Kealey on final stretch of Song-a-Day project

Written by on

It seems like this time of year is associated with a kind of short-term nostalgia. With a new year approaching, it’s almost tradition to take a step back and consider the passing year — the triumphs and the disappointments, the bright moments and the sorrows — and perhaps to raise a glass. This year, there are few that can look back on their last tour around the sun with as much clarity as local musician Tyler Kealey. You see, he’s recorded a good deal of it. Kealey has for the... | Continue reading article

Hey kids-and welcome to December! I don’t know about you but I’m very excited to flip that page on my calendar (yeah, I’m kickin’ it old-school with an actual paper calendar hanging on my wall).  We’ve arrived at that magical time of year when smiles seem easier, folks seem friendlier, and when gee whiz it’s okay to let loose your inner child. This week on Apt 613 LIVE we’re highlighting two very cool events taking place this weekend: Fryquency is celebrating its one-year anniversary over at Mugshots this Saturday November... | Continue reading article

Saturday night, Monster Truck rolled into Ottawa’s Bronson Centre, and turned this once Catholic high school for girls 700-seat auditorium into a spectacular arena rock show. Ultra high ceilings, a massive elevated stage, theatre-style seating, and plenty of standing room up front, made this the perfect sized venue, and despite its cavernous interior, maintained excellent acoustics. The name Monster Truck, was first introduced to me by way of the many who spoke of this amazing rock band from Hamilton, Ontario that opened for the legendary Deep Purple in 2012. Formed... | Continue reading article

Write On Ottawa: The on-going struggle of being human

Three cardamom pods bob in my glass of green tea. I ask Ottawa author Laurie Fraser what the Canadian Kurdish community’s reaction has been to her novel The Word Not Spoken. This love story of sorts is loosely based on Fraser’s own experiences backpacking in Turkey in the mid-1990s where she met and married a Kurdish man, the character in the novel named Ahmet. Simply put, the novel describes their adventures and misadventures together. It doing so, Fraser weaves a delicate and complex tale in a physical, emotional and political... | Continue reading article

Arepa, a kind of corn bread made from pre-cooked corn flour, is my favourite food. Of course, I’m biased because it’s a staple in my native Colombia. It also features prominently in the cuisine in Venezuela, where the Granati family, who run Gooney’s Sandwich Works out of an office tower on Laurier, have roots. Gooney’s is the only place in town that serves anything like them. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, the versatile arepa (pronounced “ah-ray-pah”) can be eaten at every meal. Prepared flat and coated... | Continue reading article
