Audrea Lim
Image: Audrea Lim

Coinciding with the genesis of the Cabbage Patch Doll, Audrea Lim came into being in the early 1980s against a Fast Times at Ridgemont High-esque backdrop saturated with images of Olivia Newton-John, Burt Reynolds, and leg warmers.  She grew up in Calgary, home of the infamous Stampede, where she indulged in the local punk and party scenes at various times in the post-Reality Bites era. Audrea currently resides in Toronto, where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Physics and Philosophy at the University of Toronto.  She divides her time between going to shows, drinking wine, going dancing, practicing kung fu, enjoying Toronto, and of course, intellectual pursuits and writing for PopMatters.

The City in the Mountain

The imposing high-rises of Gulf Canada Square, Energy Plaza, and Petro-Canada, among others, tower over the tiny commuters who come downtown to earn their wage at these brawny monuments to Canada's oil industry. But take another look: the casually dressed population is hardly bullied by all this might. No, the only thing that ruffles this hardy bunch is the wind blowing down from the mountains.

Sailing Rough Waters

Taiwan's legendary The Clippers are smart, edgy, and very adaptable. But when charting beyond their own sea, their sound is not always as well received as maybe it should be.
