2016 Critic's Picks
Steffanie Ling wrote a lovely overview of my projects in the past year. Along with thoughts
on Strawberry (Dennis Ha and Barry Doupé ) and Jessie Birch's amazing work at the
Nanaimo Art Gallery.

This is what she wrote:

Steve Hubert is that friend of yours you go secondhand shopping with and everything he tries on looks maybe a bit weird, perhaps ill fitting, yet he always manages to pull it off without irony. Hubert’s openness to new ventures in the city afforded him opportunities to unfetter his curiosity and pursue a variety of things. In the past year, he produced two plays under the For’er Players Theatre Company (The Chiropractor and Allergic to Power), performed at performance cabaret RERUNS, wrote The Hieroglyph-Prone Society of Actors-in-Commercials (a short story for new literary art journal Young Adult), mounted a solo-exhibition at the recently established Duplex, and several others. Throughout these projects, he touched on the absurdities of subcultures, power dynamics as insecure structures, and a novel approach to artists’ theatre. I don't reckon the result to be mastery, but it’s rare to get a real sense of freed curiosity from many artworks, never mind that of several projects, by an individual artist and his respective collaborators. Executed at the risk of slipping into dilettantism, he emerged the earnest dabbler – in dapper thrift no less!

Thanks Steff!!!!

The Art work that inspired the band.

Members of JSN seem on the fence about the new band:

a song about Jason Day's recent big-time golfing win

He'd been trying at this for a while, and apparently felt like this could be his last shot.
I was moved by his emotional transparency.

Also, Jason Day, who isn't American, was being heckled by
Amercian fans of an American golfer. The game was in America.
They were saying "choke choke choke"!

Who doesn't imagine themselves as the character of a similar story?



Left right left right left right left
Hey guys
Why don't you just give it a break
Jason Day at Whistling Pines

Hey Guys
Why give him a rough time
Why give him a rough time

Hey Guys
Hey Guys
Give me a try:
Choke, choke, choke, choke.

Choke, choke, choke, choke.

Give him a break now!
Give him a break.
He ain't no flake
How much can one man take?
He has a beautiful family!
