finally, after years of not even knowing this should exist… MAdM TV is born.
born out of love of music, weird people and wanting to share it with YOU.
when a woman is invited to be the sole female front woman on a weekend of 34 HEAVY bands, in the sexiest city in the north east of the americas, she better equip herself with a modest camera crew and entourage, to feast on the moment… and so we did! Slayer, Mastodon, Molson Beer, need i say more………

dear land of heavy music lovers,
this is an ode to you, in a snapshot of what i think is the best HEAVY MUSIC festival in the world. you can not ask for a better city to host it, and a more passionate (French Canadian!) audience. proud that my home town can bring this life, and obligated to share it. MAdMTV meets HEAVY MTL, Pour Vous, in 4 parts x hope you enjoy as much as we did being there x

PART 1 – Featuring the Lay of the Festival Land, Skeletonwitch and more

PART 2 – Featuring the “Ladies” loving Lamb of God, Rob Zombie and more!

PART 3 – Featuring my love of all things M and Mastodon and Much Much More!

PART 4 – Featuring Dave, magic drummer of Slayer and the HEAVY MTL CROWD!

i was not prepared for making my first televised report. in an attempt to be prepared, i #ASKED the tweeters and facers to help me come up with questions last minute. there was a slew of great questions that came in from mariano, amal, adam, ricky, matt, james, katalyze, en apariencia, jj87, the real osmium, antonio, sarah, sweetice, mayvelin, hate the hate AND MORE> THANK YOU for all your collaboration, but i was scrambling and lost the paper. ended up winging it off the cuff.

Going Live, From Austria!

  17. Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote Tote is awesome.So several pockets – and also not those little, useless pockets, either. Almost all of the pockets tend to be a wonderful size and seriously assist maintain every thing organized. The handles are a great length and fit nicely more than the actual shoulder; the handle shoulder straps additionally stay put on my own shoulder, which is critical when you’re carrying a child. The tote seems great, as well. Not as well fancy, but not as well casual. (I’ve it in black) The material is soft (can’t think of a greater word) so it’s uncomplicated to squeeze in to tight spaces – but yet it is sturdy. I have a Fleurville Lexi carrier and I adore it, as well, but that tote is kind of inflexible. I assume this Skip*Hop can turn into my daily tote. It’s a bit significant – so if you are not in to substantial totes this may be better as an over-night diaper handbag.
