sorry for the delayed declaration of love.
immediately after MAdM~OOOM met WorldCon,
i was asked to play a witch in the belles of the black diamond fields HD silent film…
so i had some women to possess and convert to the dark side, read tarot cards in a watch tower and woke up at the crack of dawn to throw lightning bolts at the ocean… furthermore, real witches don’t use blogs but now i am back home, and going to tell you a thing or two….
the intelligence of the participants and audience at the sci-fi convention was truly inspirational. from the great minds, like neil gaiman or cory doctorow among many others… to the general public that attended my riddled with technical disasters, turn stand up comedy routine. despite the inability to play the film from top to bottom smoothly (mercury technology demons in the house, creating glitches, usually near a full moon!) the audience followed the waves with me, and showed such open ears and minds! i also experimented with a solo bass and voice only set, as i have always been terrified to do so, but figured it was time to face my fears, step up to the challenge, and no better place to do it than with a clan of sci-fi maniacs! the discussion panels were also phenomenal, made me want to go back to school or at least attend these conventions regularly (for now i will dig into boing boing and american gods…)

here is a peek into others interpretation of my coming out party-
these wicked people and blog had this to say about it my visit into the new world
this could be used for all future OOOM calling cards from here on out! fantastically supportive and well written,
thanks hellbound – FOR THE LOVE OF METAL!

as a further bonus, the kingly guest of honor himself,
gave me my very own click through shout out in his journal! thank you neil!

all in all, an amazing experience and intro to a new community of inspirational people and activities…
may i walk hand in hand into the future, outer space, dreamscapes and time machines, with my new like minded community.
(sorry mister kling, i do not remember your name- but hi!)

p.s. thanks sister cecil for recommending me to your sci-fi friends!



it is an honor and a pleasure to be invited to present portions of my new project at the 67th annual (yes, that’s right since 1939!) world science fiction convention, that happens to be taking place in my hometown of montreal, canada this week.
the event happens in a different city every year (last year it was in denver, next year it’s in melbourne, australia), and attracts sci-fi enthusiasts from all over the world.
although i am a virgin to this community, i have always sensed a deep sisterhood between the sci-fi / fantasy world and the alt / metal / goth music world.
people who believe in the unusual and fantastical,
who long to be challenged and “escape” into other worlds,
who believe in the magic of story, sound and imagination…
i will be presenting OUT OF OUR MINDS, the film,
as well as making a general presentation of my
“21st century concept album” –
how a song turned into an album,
album turned into a film, which then turned into a comic,
nurturing endless potential for web portals along the way,
and then will finds it’s way to in live, in flesh venues:
film festival, sci-fi / fantasy festivals, rock clubs,
art galleries, bass player festivals, red head festivals,
full moon festivals, etc…
give us a space, and OOOM will fill it.
the aim is to commune with the fellow humans,
and OOOM is the magic carpet ride that will help me do it.

hope to see you there,
or at another in the flesh venue near you!

p.s. ooom, is basically opening up for neil gaiman’s coraline,
i am humbled and grateful!

Clues to OOOM – Part II

CHAIN CRASH from MAdM OOOM on Vimeo.




a full moon eclipse happened today.
humans and creatures alike bathed in lunar force,
day or night, clouds or clear skies…
we all lived under the influence today.
the tides of the oceans,
planetary movements and human breath, we stepped in her honor and light, wether we knew or not.

full moons make me hungry and want to receive something-
the wholeness, the light, the dark side, the surface, the core…
it makes me just want more.

todays full moon was in capricorn –
the moon embodies all things feminine, the mother, the goddess, the emotion, the magical…
the capricorn, ruled by the planet saturn, is a gentle, yet extremely masculine sign, representing, the father, the provider, the warrior, the practical …

today these two energies were at play in a high and mighty way, further intensified with an eclipse; which is when the moon passes behind the earth and for a moment the suns’ (the PAPA bear provider) rays are blocked, making it a dark moon. so for an incredible moment, we mere humans, on this greenish blue planet earth, at our computers here, were standing between the two parental forces of masculine and feminine- which has got to make us FEEL in the deepest wells of our pores and guttural emotions and if we are lucky, even our conscience minds!
i apologize, as i am simplifying it all to my elementary school girl comprehension, but what i take away from this event is, that today ,we were reminded of the dance between the eternal sources of creation: the sun and the moon – the extremes of the masculine and feminine, but reminded of our mortal selves and fleshy planet existing within that tango….

within my tiny world of creation, the MOON is a full time influence on me as a woman, and my new project OOOM –
as the central theme is an eternal feminine force on the hunt to expose heart in the matter, the freedom in the collision, the feminine in the masculine, the dark side of the light, the healing in the wound and wrapped in love and music …

i am attempting to unveil more than my little words can say…. so please let NASA do the talking: 

the beauty in the eruption,
i want more!
off to the moon i go

hope you have a full moon hangover tomorrow…..


Moranis, Canada …


… the mountains and me.
what on honor, on canada day,
to share a page with a McKenzie brother,
a New York Times Op-Ed page no less….

NYT Op-Ed Canada Day!

of course i am a dual citizen and celebrate the duality-
between today and the 4th, i promise i will trot in the rain,
commune with the explorers, founding fathers/mothers
and the kings and queens,
who made the pilgrimage to this new world, and paved the way,
for me and we, to be modern 21st century folks, who play loud,
escape into the vortex of the virtual,
and squint into the eyes of the past by gazing at the sky,
rivers and mountains that received the settlers,
and wonder how the future will shape them.
the discovery and expansion must’ve surely been empowering,
but also just plain practical and necessary
to house our epic of explosion of flesh and borders.
hurray the future is here, the past is there,
and we can visit anywhere in between!
it’s a future-past sandwich week!

la la la,
le canada


OOOM fell into the nurturing and clever hands of a man named BROWN,
he embraced the notion and shared it with his twitch tribe.
see what one man of with a taste for fantasy had to say post viewing of OOOM…




OUT OF OUR MINDS, the film,
is taking it’s first steps in her desire to go around the globe.
last week she visited Toronto at NXNE,
and tomorrow will be screened on a big BIG screen at BAM in brooklyn.
june 28th- 9pm, as part of the BAMCinemaFest.
i, the conceiver and my collaborator, director tony stone,
will be in the house for some after school Q&A.
what do you say? come by if you hover in those parts,
and share an audio visual experience with me x
happy weekend wherever you are.

and will prevail soon…
more info please visit:

MAdM T.O….

… finally rocked toronto after too long,
oiling up the rusty joints.
some fast sweaty side stage clips for you…

… and the man who got me my first cassette dj gig, mister beckles, aka pinky carnage, offered humor between bands, in return for boos by the rock crowd… but he devoted himself to OOOM backstage, so i am tickled pink.

… that’s the MAdM NXNE report. merci!
