Keep moving: a snapshot of life in the Ice District


Keep moving

The University of Alberta’s Images of Research Competition features submissions from UofA graduate students. One of the categories is “the People’s Choice Award”. I’ve submitted a photo on gentrification currently occurring in downtown Edmonton. I’m hoping this can help add nuance to what is happening, increase the visibility of existing residents and their concerns, and ensure future developments benefit all members of the community.

Please consider voting for “Keep moving: a snapshot of life in the Ice District”, or any of the other photos of work being done at the UofA!

Everyone can vote until March 21 2018!

The History of Punk Playlist #54: A Tribute to Professor Lawrence Aronsen!


“Larry thought teaching people to think was the highest avocation you could have.”


This is a tribute to Professor Lawrence Aronsen, a wonderful friend and mentor (there’d be no radio show without him). He picked the playlist for the show, and listened to it air on CJSR from Vancouver with his wife, Elizabeth. Larry’s pals David Mills and John Thompson helped spin his songs, and talked about his life and the impact he’s had on generations of students. Great (non-punk) music, stories, and other special guests David Marples, John Harris, Jeremy Rossiter, and Thomas Reikie.

The show originally aired on CJSR from 10-11:30AM MST on Monday 30 November 2015. Here it is:
