Possible career change? I doubt it. I did my first voice over work for a co-worker's short film called Rise of the Empire. It's a fake Star Wars trailer for Episode III done completely with Lego men (and women). I play a storm trooper that says "Halt!" It was submitted for competition at BrickFest 2002 and won the Audience Choice award.

I finally got around to scanning some older pics for the mirror project. I have a lot of mirror pictures, but only a couple of them have me in them and follow the site specifications. This one is a self-portrait using a series of mirrors at the Delta Prince Edward in Charlottetown, PE. It was during the ECMA weekend last year. This one was either en route or returning from a white water rafting expedition in Maine. We stopped in Fredericton and I snapped this picture. Ah, fun with mirrors.

Revenge of the rap nerds
Freestyle champ ADeeM Sweet Talks Halifax.
by Iain K. MacLeod

Last summer, a spliff-smoking reporter from the Australian indie hip-hop publication Stealth referred to ADeeM as "possibly the nerdiest white rapper" at Cincinnat's Scribble Jam. ADeeM went on to freestyle his way past dozens of well-respected MCs like Sage Francis (Non-Prophets) and Slug (Atmosphere), and took home top honours during the hotly contested MC battle.

Pick up a copy of The Coast to read the rest of the story or visit The Dorian Three to get the latest news on underground hip-hoppers ADeeM, DJ MF Shalem and Adverse.
