Just spent a solid day with the pretty spectacular guys of Youth Music Movement. Thanks to their sponsor Pepsi, they are traveling across Canada and hand selecting an artist from each province to record a song & create a music video with. The Manitoba artist they chose was Saint Kris (featuring Rosie Blais from Enjoy Your Pumas). Having a personal “in” with artist allowed me to hang out with the group all day- and get a sneak peak behind […]

Earlier this week I was given the privilege and pleasure of accompanying a dear friend to a “cast and crew” screening of The Year Dolly Parton was My Mom at Winnipeg’s Cinematheque. This opportunity was made available by my friend, an accounting intern at Buffalo Gal Pictures (producers of the film) who kindly let me tag along as her plus one. Overall and with little experience in movie reviewing, I thought it was fantastic. My naivety in film study, along with […]
My professional relationship with Camera-pro Khammy Phanthavong has formed thanks to a couple of mutual friends. At first Khammy and I were able to connect via Facebook, ultimately commencing with me “like-clicking” ALL of her posted work and by work I mean her breathtaking photography. Following an oscillation of compliments between facebook accounts, we finally began messaging, even twittering- and low and behold the electronic world has united yet another essential friendship. I had the pleasure of working with Khammy behind […]
Winnipeg’s sensational indy-pop band The Liptonians will be performing with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra this Canada Day (2011) at The Forks. The following video was shot by Nice!

Productions, who will collaborate with J.Lofthouse for a look into the Exchange District. […]
Vancouver’s very own Elizabeth Law is the creator of the clothing line ‘Wise + Proper’ that is notorious for its line of trendy and wearable clothing.
