Queens of Convenience

The beautiful Marissa of No Wear No How came out to party with me last night for Did You Die's album release show at the SBC and we took some photos at a convenience store on Hastings. I bought a bag of Ruffles and a Chupa Chups lollipop and it came up to a total of 75 cents, which I thought was a sweet deal. Marissa and I formed the No Bangs Club last night, holla at us if you wanna join. No Bangs Allowed.

I need to fix my sleep schedule 'cause I was on two overnight background shoots so I stayed up 'til 6 AM throughout Thursday to Saturday. It's so messed up. I just wanna be a normal human being, please. With normal feelings at a tolerable level with regularly-spaced fluctuation, and a functional biological clock. Even as I type this, I feel no desire to sleep at all, no drowsiness, nothing -- and I know I have to wake up at 10 AM for an audition today (which I barely rehearsed, boo, Sunny, boooooo, two thumbs DOWN). In fact, after I finish typing, it's time for a well-deserved smoke break.

Also, I am currently lamenting the fact that I wasted four years and a shit ton of government money on a bachelor's degree in psychology, lmao, when I could have went into film and theatre or something. Or even just worked for four years and did stuff with my life, like finally finish writing a fricking novel. I don't even know how to write a novel anymore. When I was 16, I thought I was, like, this awesome author and I used to be so inspired and so passionate and so depressed. Now when I'm depressed, I just smoke a lot of cigarettes and numb out to Netflix and dress in cute clothes once in a while to go out to do nothing, except be seen by other people as a way to validate my own existence and my worth in this materialistic society.

Anyway I'm glad I took this time to rant about my life because I haven't been doing that on my blog lately and guess what, this is still my blog so deal with it.

Is there anybody out there?




Straight Chillin': Matt and Some Seagulls, Y'all

Remember when I used to be cool and post photos and write stuff on my blog all the time?

Yeah, me neither.

This should be called "Matt and The Big Door" and put on the cover of a children's book.

These are some action shots. I took all of these the day before leaving for Toronto on September 4th. I'm so lame it took me more than two months to edit them. I guess it's because I have what you would call A Life now.

I have this thing for seagulls. Always have, and always will.

Featured above are two loaves of bread, enjoying the sporadic spots of sunshine on this beautiful Vancouver day, two months ago.

Things I Am Excited About:
- becoming the next Natalie Portman, but Asian
- the day people stop comparing me to Lucy Liu
- my future death
- the release of a friend's short film (because I am in it) even though IDK when that will be
- auditions, auditions, auditions
- receiving my money from all the background work I've been doin'
- having consistent background work for December and January
- writing a screenplay, possibly
- buying more of these packs of spicy tofu snax 'cause I bought 6 packs a week ago and finished the last one today and I still have a craving

P.S. Check out a song I sang on and wrote lyrics for, y'all.



Power of the Pussy!

Power of the Pussy is a gender-inclusive art collective aimed at bringing awareness to sociopolitical issues in Canada and worldwide, based out of Vancouver. Our first protest was on October 3rd, and we stood together, faceless, in Victory Square, to represent the countless people affected by Stephen Harper's budget cuts and policies.
POTP wants Canadians to strategically vote Harper and his Conservatives out of power! Are you registered to vote on October 19th?

For more information on POTP, check out our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You can join in on our movement by contacting us! We'll let you know when the next meeting is held.

P.S. Power of the Pussy will be making zines in the future and it will be fun.



I puked all over Toronto

There are hundreds of photos I have not even touched from my trip to Eastern Canada, y'all.

Meanwhile, check out my interview with Babysitter's frontman on Creep Magazine, read my poem, and laugh at my random YouTube video below:

COVER "Sad Girl" by Lana Del Rey

So, I shall write up a long-ass post about Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal at a later date, but right now, I have to go grab my laundry from the communal dryer so another tenant can use it, take a quick shower, and head out to a general meeting for UBCP -- all in the span of 20 minutes.

Hashtag-adult-life, am I right?



YVR to YYZ to YUL and back again soon

Flora is currently in New York for the next week, and I am leaving on an airplane in T-minus 4 hours for another cement jungle called Toronto. I will be reuniting with Nancy for nine days in which we shall visit Ottawa and Montreal as well, in a mad dash.

Here are some Netflix films with sincerely-written female protagonists for anyone who is wiling the summer's end away by cuddling up with some snacks:

  • Obvious Child
  • Life Partners (starring Leighton Meester, Gillian Jacobs and Adam Brody)
  • Girl Most Likely
  • Tiny Furniture (still my favourite Lena Dunham piece)

Check out a couple pieces I wrote for Creep Magazine recently: a review of Princess Century's EP, and coverage of the Greyscale Tattoo Convention.

See you in a bit, Vancouver!
