Gaylist

Work it

May, 2016

For a work-themed playlist in a gay magazine, you’re probably expecting “Work Bitch” and the new Rihanna, but this is a little more creative than that. This is a playlist for you to put on during a long day at the office when you need a little extra motivation. Put these tunes on and the […]

Brett Owen's Love Playlist

March, 2016

Listen to Brett’s playlist at 8tracks.com/havewemet. 01 Bright Light Bright Light Love Part II Bright Light x2 is Rod Thomas, a wondrous gay disco gift. He makes music that is equal parts danceable and tear-jerking. Always a winning combination, if you ask me. He has released two albums (and a duet EP with Elton John!), […]

Butcher review

A gift from your foreign Butcher

October, 2015

  As I believe you should give yourself the gift of taking in the play Butcher, currently playing at the Prairie Theatre Exchange (PTE), I will not do you the disservice of talking about Butcher. This makes for a difficult review to write. I will say that maybe this is appropriate as Butcher is not an easy play. It’s […]

Unnecessary, but welcomed, farce

A review by Eric Plamondon

March, 2016

I have a bias. I enjoy theatre. I feel I should tell you this, as my review of the MTC’s recent main stage offering, Unnecessary Farce, is well seated in the fact that I enjoy a night out at the theatre. I believe the strength of the play lies in the assumption that there are […]

Top 10 Playlist

October, 2015

For this issue, I’ve created a playlist of my top 10 favourite songs. I have a tendency toward indie electro synth pop, usually from Sweden, so that’s mostly what this is. You can listen to the playlist here. It features five bonus songs that I didn’t have room for here! 1. Dragonette “Let The Night […]

No more war on earth

A review of Cavalia Odysseo

August, 2015

When I first heard that Cavalia Odysseo was coming to Winnipeg, I was sceptical about whether or not I would like it because I wasn’t sure how the horses are treated. On the website for Odysseo it talks about how they are cared for, but I couldn’t find any certain proof of it. Sept. 10, […]
