The Continuist Presents: Perfect Bound Launch 2017

We’re nearing the end of another academic year, and that means that we at The Continuist have something special to share with you! Please join us for the release of our 2017 perfect bound publication; it’s not to be missed. Made with the help of SIF and the Faculty of Arts, this publication holds the best of the best from this past year, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

From 7-10pm we will be on the 3rd floor of the Arts and Letters Club (which is a wheelchair accessible venue). Drop in for some food (vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options available), drinks, music, embroidery, paintings, buttons, and of course, our zine! We will have copies of the perfect bound for sale as well as past issues from earlier this year. As always admission is FREE and we’d love to have you!

If you have any questions feel free to email us at thecontinuist@gmail.com – if you’re on Facebook RSVP to our event!

New Retro Music: Freeweights’ “Close Call”

On February 17, 2017, Helsinki’s synth pop band, Freeweights, released their new song titled Close Call.

This 2012 quintet is recognised for their distinguishable 80’s new wave revival, with their nostalgic electronic harmonies, and cheesy positive lyrics.

     Chorus:

     close call

      I’ve been driving too fast tonight

      I’ve been driving too fast

      for your love

      always out there in the night

      it’s a close call

The song’s style brings our parents back to a time of neon lights, Vaporwave fonts, relationship-driven lyrics, and Ferrari Testarossas.

While you are there: try this neat trick (suggested by the artist).

Go to your phones settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Invert colours

With this slight change, you can witness the art in a new light. The Broadbent Sister’s work in the Nowhere, Now Here: The Fourth Technology of Magic exhibition features pieces predominantly in the colours blue and yellow. With the “inverted colours” you can see the artwork in its opposite form.

Check out this incredible exhibit before its over on march 1st!

Crack.

Dayna Lang

 

A bite of time,

like the small of a back.

A time changing line

and a shattering crack.

Five years of a life –

fifty five long.

The joy like a knife,

that cut slightly wrong.

In five short years

you brought two daughters in;

you wrapped them in tears

and you taught them to swim.
