POP

THE SLEW

DRAGONETTE

In the category of “Just having such a damn good time,” The Slew, the Kid Koala/Wolfmother rock project wins whole-heartedly. I’ve never seen such beautiful, bashful smiles cross the faces of such talented rockers. The audience in attendance was by far the most enthusiastic of all the POP shows I hit.

If you are going to touch anyone on stage, it might as well be Martina Sorbara. The Dragonette singer stunned me with her not-so-throw-away pop vocals and proved that glam rock doesn’t require any kind of preconceived haircut.


MONO

TRIGGER EFFECT

Instrumental rock from a movie too good to ever be made. Leaning into their guitars to mask their identity, Mono appealed to grey matter. I found the sound both woeful and incomprehensibly glamorous. Was I myself?

Trigger Effect win a spot in my heart for showering L’Escogriffe with pure blood-and-sweat energy. The floor was covered in broken glass, but that didn’t stop lead singer Patrick Bennett from rolling around on it (pictured here in a white t-shirt) with attendees and one blood-soaked photographer.

Growing up ain’t easy to do when you have people from all different directions breathing down your neck about who and what to be. As we get older we become more of who we think we truly are and look back on our youth with a myriad of different emotions. In a land of seemingly endless opportunity, finding your true self can be just as easy as it is hard.

As a photographer, I am drawn to each subject because I see a different phase of myself in all of them. At times this realization can be a bit hard to swallow, but I love the leap like you mean it, all or nothing attitude of youth and can only hope that we can hold on to at least a part of that as we grow older. This is not a definitive look into American youth, it is simply a part of KID USA that I find fascinating.

SEX DOT COM The Connection Erection: Internet Porn and You WORDS BY KATIE KOTLER

I had agreed to see the Broadway musical Avenue Q with my family in New York on the pretense that there were Muppets involved. Sitting next to my dad, I was horrified to realize I would have to watch a recluse Muppet monster sing and dance to “The Internet Is For Porn.” A few months ago, a friend tried to show me a DVD of her working in a hot dog booth at a carnival in Denmark. Instead, Unlawful Misdemeanors, her landlord’s DVD, came onto the screen and portrayed a very different kind of sausage-fest that managed to traumatize me for a week. I met a guy at a party last year who worked with the man responsible for introducing the bukkake phenomenon to North America. “He’s so nice you would never know that he‘s in porn,” I was told. I was ready to punch him. As I write this, a friend is sending me a video of him and his girlfriend having sex in the shower. Apparently, it’s really hot. Porn is nothing new, obviously. We all have tales of encountering it in some shape or form as children and finding it funny, fascinating and most importantly, informative. What is new, these days, is the ease with which the Internet allows us to access porn; privately, instantly and with evermore particularity. We no longer need to buy a magazine, go to Crescent street, or visit Cinéma L’Amour in order to get off. These days all we need is a ‘connection.’ The question creeps along on how this affects our real-life connections. Has it made you more anal? Shaven? Thirsty? Choked up? Unimpressed by reality? Are you more willing to do things for the camera? Can you and your partner get it on if it’s not in the background? How many times have you girls been with a guy and are simultaneously tempted to laugh and puke because they say something in a serious voice that you know they heard in a porn? Feminist Naomi Wolf reports that when asking men what their biggest fear about having sex with women is, they say, “That they will laugh at us.” Women reply, “That they’ll kill us.” I recently conducted a survey on how Internet porn affects our sex lives. I was somewhat surprised by the results.

SEX

“Mitch” a survey participant, said that he likes sex dirty when it comes to porn, but would never try anything like ‘that’ in real life. Fine, but if sex is all about opposition, breaking boundaries and fantasies, then is it realistic to think his ‘dirty’ thoughts will never come up in real life? And what are the consequences if they don’t? “Benoit,” a forty-two year old divorcee from France who participated in my study, told me that a lot of his married friends went to see prostitutes because they would never want to ask the mothers of their children to do the things that they desired in bed. Benoit tried to break this boundary by taking his (now ex) wife to sex clubs. He reflects: “I wonder if the acts actually came from porn or if porn is an imitation of reality.” According to Quantcast data, 41% of porn sites in North America are trafficked by women, so girls must like porn. Or they at least try to like it, which is difficult when you consider popular ones such as the Bang Bus, a site where guys drive around and pick up girls to have sex with in their van. Immediately after coitus, the women are thrown back onto the street, with cum on their faces and their clothes still in the van. While the girls they pick up are arranged, it is the reality-show angle that begets the site’s success. Is it actually realistic, then, to think that porn does not influence our sex lives? Anti-porn feminist Andrea Dworkin claimed that porn promotes a rape culture. Other feminists, meanwhile, such as Wolf, are convinced that it has weakened men’s libidos. Some of the participants of my survey confirmed Wolf’s opinion for a few reasons: 1· Both male and female parties agree that ‘real’ women cannot measure up to porn actresses in the looks department. 2· Men feel they need (or are supposed) to ask for things that they know that women will be uncomfortable with. 3· Porn makes it easier to get what you want without having to ask for it in real life, eg. facials.


This leads to another, more existential question of what becomes defined as ‘real.’ Is ‘real’ what happens when we are really pleasured? Or does reality occur when we are really with another person? One participant, who I will refer to as “Luke,” describes how his porn habit has affected his sex life: It makes it more difficult to find porn that turns me on… As far as expectations, it has no effect on me. I don’t expect to have sex, and my expectations are fulfilled… As far as experience... if not for my ability to easily acquire high quality hardcore porn over the years, I probably would have given more effort to mating. When I see attractive women in ads on websites, in the street, or in my day-today experiences, I tend to go watch porn. If not for porn, then I’d probably have to target my efforts towards fulfilling the craving another way. So for me I’d say it’s a substitute for sex. Porn is like mental spam – filling our heads and clogging our imaginations with wanted and unwanted information. No wonder Mary Anne Layden, of the Sexual Trauma Program at U Penn, says that Internet porn addiction can be described as being worse than having a cocaine addiction. Layden reckons that with cocaine, you can rid your body of the drug, while the images of porn never exit your brain. Wolf explains a dependence on porn as being based on the Pavlovian response that is controlled by the almighty orgasm. Psychologist David Marcus prefers to classify Internet porn consumption as a compulsion rather than as an addiction. What’s the difference? “There’s an anxiety component to it,” he says. “In medical terms, we call it ego dystonic, which basically means that it’s a behaviour that goes against your sense of self.” Despite all of this, I don’t want to rant and come off as being completely anti-porn because I am not. I just believe that mainstream porn needs tweaking. I think that it could be equally sexy and oppositional, if only men were similarly objectified as women. That’s hot for everyone. When women say they are not as visual as men, I sense that we have been conditioned to feel that way. If porn was catered to women, men might get off on watching women enjoy themselves more. Reality would sink in that women like sex just as much as men. Then maybe it wouldn’t be as difficult to get up and actually talk to a girl in the first place, because you would know she wants it as much you. Just not on her face.

Food for thought: › The majority of the participants in my survey admitted that tasting one’s own fluids and choking are increasingly popular occurrences when it comes to what is actually tried in the bedroom. › According to Quantcast Data, you are least likely to watch porn if you are an eleven-year old Asian female graduate student who has kids and makes less than $30K a year. › You are most likely to watch porn if you are a twenty-six year old white guy, with no kids, who makes under $60K a year and never went to university. › A rise in rates of oral sex has been linked to an increase in numbers of tongue, mouth and throat cancers caused by the sexually-transmitted human papilloma virus. Rates of the disease are at a 30-year high and it is particularly prevalent among young men. › Catherine Harper of the organization Scottish Women Against Pornography, claims that certain forms of venereal diseases – such as chlamydia of the eye – have been spread by men coercing their partners into performing sex acts copied from pornography.

That weekend, your hand seldom grazed the small of my back – the part of me you so loved once. You did not linger. You shrugged me off, distanced yourself. Ominous discomfort grew thick between us. Had I not posed the question, would you have? And so, we let things rest, broke things off, and then I slept in your bed, wrapping myself in your sheets, trying to wring them of the past we had woven. The word VIA acknowledges only the mode of transportation, or the intermediate point to a destination. It erases the past. It ignores the beginning. We broke up on a Saturday night. My train would not leave until Sunday afternoon. I felt the weight of your body lifting from the bed and I looked away, staring into the drained white sky, imagining the path ahead, trying to discern structure and support where it had been torn down, where it had not yet been rebuilt. As you write VIA, you trace a road, across the V, down the I and through the A. Turn the word around

180 degrees and the structure remains the same, the same way backwards and forwards. In Italian, VIA means road. I wanted answers, but I also wanted escape. To rebuild and to demolish. Questions had no answers. No matter how much I asked, the responses never satisfied. The ellipses just hung in the air, a resonant strange dissatisfying silence. A ringing quiet that left me stunned and indecisive. Exclaiming VIA can both encourage and shoo away. VIA! Come on! VIA! Go away! My VIA Rail train took me away. The passing landscape was budded with greens of spring. It spoke of ends and beginnings and the beginnings within ends. And I traced my emotions, and I traced the moments and I continued tracing, trying to make sense, replaying moments. And in the cycle, I untangled and retangled emotions, all the while digging deeper into confusion. In the blur, in the motion, I breathed out, hurtling forward, and breathed in again.

GIN For the thirsty, there are several threeletter word options open, from tea to joe, rum, rye and eau. It’s true they say “blood is thicker than water but gin is thicker than blood” and on that note, why not opt for the gentleman’s favourite drink? Warm your cockles with a couple of these tasty recipes!

CLOVER CLUB COCKTAIL › › › › ›

2 oz gin Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/4 oz raspberry syrup 1 egg white 1 tsp sugar

Pour everything into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes and shake vigourously – be sure to properly break-up and mix the egg and sugar. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

BILTMORE › › › › ›

1 piece of pineapple 2 oz gin 1 oz sweet vermouth A dash of maraschino liqueur A hazelnut soaked in maraschino

Soak a hazelnut in maraschino for at least a day in advance. Break-up the pineapple into a mixing glass. Add the gin, vermouth and maraschino, fill with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Fish the hazelnut out of the liqueur and drop in the glass for garnish.


DIRTY MARTINI › › › ›

2 1/2 oz gin 1/2 oz dry vermouth Olive brine to taste Olive for garnish

Pour the gin and dry vermouth into a mixing glass. Slowly add the olive brine and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the olive.

HAIR OF THE DOG Your morning-after remedy (should you ever need one) › › › ›

6 oz gin Juice of one lime 2-3 dashes Tabasco / hot sauce Slice of chilli pepper or a sprinkling of chilli flakes

Pour gin and Tabasco sauce into an icefilled cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with chilli.

TIP Gin is your perfect romping companion for the colder months. A cheeky wee flask in the pocket is like the warm friend you’ve always wanted but never had.

TEN What will the ‘TwentyTens’ bring? What will our next decade look like? Is our future still bright?

Julien Gregoire

Jeremy Dabrowski

I don’t really know what we’ll discover in the next ten years, but I certainly hope it’s more exciting than what I’ve seen in the years since I was born. I mean, one of the greatest technologies invented in the last 30 years was a search engine or a word processor. Pfff… I was waiting for the long promised time-traveling sports car, but the best they came up with was Facebook. We were all hoping for Jesus to come back, instead we got Michael Jackson; we wanted a universal language, and somehow ended up with lol, imo, wtf... So maybe for the next ten years, we could work on: a way to communicate by thought, individual electrical wings that let you fly around the world, flowers that grow in winter, a way to stop time for a while, things like that. Not some boring webpage, a really small 3D TV or the kind of crap they keep churning out year after year.

2010 will be very similar to 2009. Perhaps we’ll see a new iPhone or two and some demonstrations surrounding the Olympics. Also segways could become quite popular again since the retro-fashion gap is closing so quickly. The teen years on the other hand will have a small acne problem, angst, a fluctuation in voice, first kiss, first car, first 40 oz... It’s a magical time.

Rose Athena It’s time for action not introspection. “Always the self listens and seeks... It compares, masters, conquers and destroys.” I compare myself to those who I respect and revere. I master my fear. I conquer the innocuous. I destroy the hand that fed me – for I want more.

Sara McCulloch The next ten years will give new perspective, space travel, the invention of the time machine, an easier way to get up in the morning, better storytelling, and an awkward romance or two along the way. TEN

Elizabeth McIntosh Within the next ten years, I dream of one day waking up to read the following news headlines: Oil Companies Bankrupt Following the Success of Ethanol Powered Cars; Scientists Unearth Infinite Water Supply; Intelligent Life Found on Mars; Africa Finds HIV Cure; and Elvis Sighted Eating Poutine in Montréal.

Jan Erus It’s sad but 10 years from now I see people scanning labels, excited by things like ‘includes real food products.’ When did we become so complacent with chemical additives in everything we consume? In 2007, research showed that North America consumed more pharmaceuticals than the rest of the world combined. Will the next 10 years bring us too many over-excited pharmacists over-prescribing every possible chemical concoction? I hope more of us join organic food co-ops and start that composting group we never had time for. Maybe the answer lies in worms?


"The individual in a crowd feels different about him or herself – and about the limits of what can be achieved. The notion of impossibility disappears. It is powerful and brave: the Bastille can be stormed, as indeed it was." – ROBERT BUCKMAN

SNAP! MAKES ITS SECOND OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. Our theme is CROWD and our goal is to explore the way people come together. From dance halls to sporting events, from rallies to riots. Why do we lose ourselves in a group? How do we let go of our inhibitions? What are the outcomes, good and bad? All submission proposals can be directed to shayl@snapme. ca. The deadline for submissions is January 11th, 2010. A competition for THE BEST PARTY PHOTO will be held in conjunction with the CROWD issue with cash and prizes for the top three winners. Final selection will be made by a panel of independent judges. Entries can be sent to the email above or info@ snapme.ca on or before January 8th, 2010.
