[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 18

In this episode: A short ride on Christmas Eve, voiced on Ukrainian Christmas day wherein I ramble about my new camera, the closing of the local garden shop as a result of the housing crisis in Vancouver and point out the worst of the criminals fuelling it, attempt to use a drive-through bank machine, discover a newly finished bike path to explore later, dodge dogs, do some more exploring, and talk about the very dark place I got to this past December (recovery is not linear.)


[Gothic BC] Bad Vibes Radio Set List from May 25

Last week I was on Bad Vibes on CFRO. This is the set-list from that show. My bit starts with The Vampire Club by Voltaire, and you can listen to it here. From that point on Marc Godfrey and I were picking from a list of music that I brought with me depending on how the conversation went. I came armed with almost three hours of music for a one hour interview, with everything picked for a reason. What I want to do for the next little while is run through those choices, including the ones that we didn't get to, and talk about why I picked them. 


"A Women's Strike", The Victoria Daily Colonist, March 8, 1916

An article for the "Women's Realm" section of the Daily Colonist out of Victoria, British Columbia, published March 8, 1916 about New York City sweat-shop workers organizing:

A Women's Strike

Women have reason to be proud of the result of a strike which recentl took place in the city of New York. It has been conducted without disorder and was successful in gaining for those who took part in it shorter hours, better conditions of working, and higher wages.

I am, at last, caught up to exactly 100 years ago.
