Just days after our interview about his upcoming Jazz Fest show, Daniel Lanois was in a serious motorcycle accident in Los Angeles. Thankfully he’s okay and recovering in the hospital, but has understandably had to cancel most of his summer tour, including his stop in Montreal. I had such a great chat with him that we decided we should still run the interview…

New York’s finest ladies, precocious Drag Queens Sherry Vine and Joey Arias, chat about their newest show, how their friendship began, their love for Montreal and how to get started in the biz of being fabulous.
Josh Dolgin, aka Socalled, always has about 7000 things on the go. The Montreal screening of the NFB movie about him is just the tip of the iceberg. However, conducting an interview with him at St-Viateur’s Club Social is not the most efficient way to get things done…
Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales, was in Montreal yesterday to give a keynote address at Webcom Montreal. You might have never heard his name before, but this man has changed the way we live and access information forever – making knowledge attainable and free for people around the globe. In our interview, Wales talked to me about open source licensing and how it is transforming the face of the internet. We also chatted about such various subjects as the video-era, students in India, copyright issues, geotagging and this mysterious thing called Werewolf, of which Wales is a big fan.

Due to the acceptance (and celebration) of gay and lesbian peoples, Montréal has become one of the top gay destinations in the world. Even the rockstars know that! I sat down with Tyler and Jim from the Canadian rock group “Barenaked Ladies” to talk about all sorts of delicious gay things. What type of gay stuff does that band like to do? Who is their gay diva of choice? Who is hotter: George Stroumboulopoulos or Michael Bublé? This is information you need. What results is a humorous (and dare I say ‘touching’) interview that is a must-watch for anyone who loves these Canadian rock icons, or just enjoys a bit of gay flair. My favorite quote is, “MORE GAY INTERVIEWS!” Maybe I’ve found my calling?
In a world of Paris-Hilton-twitter-literacy, Paul Muldoon is a true poetic gem. I sat down with this Pulitzer Prize winning poet to chat about how he writes a poem, the link between poetry & travel and his favorite hotel in Montréal.
Who is Mado? Mado is irreverent. Mado is charming. Mado is bitchy. Mado is Montreal. Last week, after a hilarious Drag Queen Makeover , I sat down with Montreal’s infamous Drag Queen, Mado, to chat about what it takes to run Montreal’s fab-est Cabaret and what travelers should do when they visit our city. What resulted is perhaps my most entertaining and informative video yet. My favorite moment: when Mado says, “Do I want to be a Drag queen for the rest of my life? Or do I want to work at McDonald’s? You have a choice.” Oh, and don’t miss our lesbian cat growls… Grrrrrr!
