Brendan McLeod has been Vancouver's SLAM poetry champion, the Canadian SLAM champ, and finished second in the world at the 2005 World SLAM championships, held in Holland. In the past two years he has toured cross-Canada three times, and four times through Europe as both a solo performer and member of the spoken word/music troupe The Fugitives. His past readings include: the Rotterdam International Poetry Festival, the German National SLAM championships, the Dylan Thomas Festival, and the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. Excerpts from his first novel were published in the academic journal /Sophia/. He has a MA in Philosophy from the University of Waterloo.

Magpie Ulysses is: freshie faced and full of fertile lap dog take no prisoners lay down in the sunbeam and cry poetics. She has been a member of 3 Vancouver Poetry Slam teams & has performed solo in cities and at festivals small and large across Canada and in the United States. "Her crossover potential appears without limits. Indeed, she is probably nothing less than a pathfinder for a new generation of performance poets whose work on the page will consistently capture and illuminate much of the dynamic vitality and clarity of the live presentation." R.D.Shadowbyrd

RC Weslowski has toured Europe with his poetry, performing on the Eiffel Tower in France and along the Rhine in Germany. He has traveled across Canada and the U.S. individually as well as a 4 time member of the Vancouver Poetry Slam Team (1999-2001 and 2003). His work is bawdy, provocative, iconoclastic, silly and surreal. It is somehow designed to shake and settle a soul all at the same time. RC has also written a children's poetry book called monkey pudding.

Previously I bought all tattoo equipment at bulk prices but my supplier got jailed (believe it or not) so I'm trying to find a good tattoo equipment firm (better online one) to buy tattoo equipment from. Here is an example of what I am interested in: Tattoo Ink. Thanks in advance for any information folks! PM me or drop me some lines at:
