BBC released an article on a study from Newcastle University that looked a three forms of exercises to determine which one would be most beneficial for memory retention. The first group worked on puzzles like Sudoku for three hours a week, while the second group walked for three hours a week. The final group was asked to take an art class for three hours a week. What was the end result?
After all these months of toiling away alone at the loft and feeling a little departed from the world and afraid of the sunlight, I finally picked up an intern, Emelia. She’s been an awesome contributor and a huge help around the space, but really she gives me a chance to go out and see the world. She’s learning a lot of things on the job and I think she’s done some great work with our videos. Check out our latest promo video for Creative Hangout.
Here are some tasty photos from our Beefy Jerky and food dehydration workshop with Beefy Jerky owner Krys Grey. We dehydrated beef, kimchi, and garlic, mmm…
On the weekends we’ve been hosting Paint & Wine sessions up in the loft. Painting, wine, and fresh cookies are a great way to spend a weekend. Here are some photos.
Here are some photos from the launch of Thin Walls Music, an intimate concert series, a side project that I’ve working on with some friends. Grammy nominated band In-Flight Safety played for us a flawless performance in their unique style of acoustic rock. Stay tuned for some more content from this amazing concert.

On the second Saturday of March a group of strangers came together to share in what was once only reserved for inner circles. Teachers, Engineers, and self proclaimed racists united on the front of political incorrectness and sought to dispel the notion of censorship. The result was hilarity and an ugly peek into the minds of some amazingly honest people. AAH!!!! See you at the next one.
This past Wednesday we held out first apartment concert at the Hub. Singer-songwriter and Juno award nominated artist Dave Quanbury treated us to his unique style of music. He played left-handed on this right-handed guitar, treated us to some songs on the piano, and if you were lucky enough to hang around after the crowd had left, he pulled out our trumped and played us a tune. A big thanks to Dave and to everyone that came out to enjoy this special moment with us. See you at the next one!
