Follow your dreams. You can be anything if you try. Reach for the stars. All of these overused cliché statements were plaguing my Pinterest. At 31 years old, you have to keep scrolling and think: “If I had my time back.” Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda right? Then one day I got motivated. I watched my group of lady friends make changes in the world that were significant. I decided my fate was in my own hands. Pinterest was right. Why not try an online magazine? I am a journalist and I have been freelancing for over 8 years. It’s been a hard gig but I have stuck with it. I have not remained consistent but I was all like, ‘I want…

 Photo Credit: Mike O’Reilly (www.mikeophoto.ca) A little over a month ago, man-of-many-hats, Kenneth J. Harvey released a music video for “Happiness Kills”, a track by St. John’s alt-rock act Young Maniacs. I had the chance to talk to both Senor Harvey himself, as well as Aaron Hickey and James Greene of Young Manics about their current endeavours and the film-making process. Young Manics are a Placentian-St.John’s-Ukrainian band comprised of Aaron Hickey, James Green, Peter Collins, and Andrew Small, and new member, Iryna Borshchova. The initial core of four began playing in 2008 and finally released their first album, Solidarity Songs in 2013, which resulted in a Music NL nomination for Alternative Group of the Year. Hickey said that he “had…

Temperance Street By Herb F. Hopkins On July 2, 1992 two significant moments in Newfoundland culture were being exposed. At the same time, the true state of the cod fishery and the Roman Catholic Church were visible. Temperance Street is Herb Hopkins second novel, it unfolds during these stressful endeavours in Newfoundland history. Hopkins wanted to revisit Luke, a character from his first novel The Book of Luke. He was interested in making Luke 14-years-old because it was an age group he had taught, coincidentally that stuck the novel in 1992. “The darkest year in Newfoundland history; the cod moratorium and post Roman Catholic church abuse scandal. Frankly, I didn’t want to write about these sensitive issues, but there it…

I bought my current camera about 2 and a half years ago, but didn’t get the opportunity to properly learn it until the Fall of 2013, after being encouraged – or shall I say, pressured – to do so by my girlfriend and some photographer friends. But, in my experience, one doesn’t do anything, until they themselves are ready to do so. So, really, I’m a very new photographer. It seems they are truly a dime a dozen – or more per dozen – nowadays. This is not really surprising considering the improvement…
