Lookin’ all deep and stuff

I write about local art, music events, news and charities happening in Medicine Hat, and when I actually get a chance/willpower to go to one – I write about that too. Generally though, I write about whatever events are taking place in the city, or just random stuff (that’s what a blog is truly for after all).

I write articles about whatever I have an interest in, whether it is music, art, or anything media-based in and around Medicine Hat. Sometimes they end up a little angsty; but hey, that is how I write. That is about all, Vaughn pretty much stole everything I would have said. That’s the last time I ask him to do something first…

At the center of the earth in that parking lot
you sealed the promise with a kiss on the spot
Fast forward through the years, I think what a shame
our hearts have gone out of time and we’re not the same

Faux ’emo’ to the max!

I have been in Medicine Hat and area my whole life and am a somewhat active artist in the community. I write about things that spark my interest or things that I would encourage people to take part in, which end up being mostly art or game related which I both thoroughly enjoy.

Been around the block...

Been around the block…

I have lived in Medicine Hat since age 18 and moved away only to attend UofL in 1991, completing 3 years of a BA in English Literature. I started in computers at the Glass Factory in Redcliff in the early 1980s and bought a Commodore-64 to learn more at home. Soon I picked up an 8088-based machine with MS-DOS 3-21 and added a 20MB HDD for $600. Now I am a die-hard Firefox fan that runs fine on my 6-year-old system. I really enjoy Medicine Hat Media, the variety of information posted and the responses generated.

Mike Waterhouse

Mike has become a regular contributor for Medicine Hat Media and he tends to catch everything important that we miss. He hasn’t written a bio for himself yet on this page, but we decided to mention his name here because of his ongoing efforts. He deals mostly with interesting local videos.

Scott Kunz

Scott mainly writes about Medicine Hat community events. He spends his time scouring social networking sites and tweeting about events going on in town. Scott is by far our youngest community contributor, but is talented at writing and is highly knowledgeable. Check him out on Twitter @scottkunz
