Hard Work

By Nick Goodwin Hard work. Sometimes I feel that I know the definition of it. Truly, I do not. I have the vision of where I want to be with my successes. This is what sets the tone for how hard I must work….

Garbage Strike

By Nick Goodwin Okay, so Toronto’s morale doesn’t seem to be out of whack at all. Maybe a little unfocused but somehow people are remaining happy even with the increasingly gross trails of garbage leading from overflowing containments. Are we to improvise and use…

My Brother

By Nick Goodwin I don’t see as much of my brother as I would like to, however, we got together for my aunt’s wedding and Father’s Day the day after. He’s busy working all summer. It has been weird being away from home. It…

Hopeton Interview

By Nick Goodwin I recently interviewed another participant in “The Remix Project”. His name is Hopeton.

The Shelter

By Nick Goodwin I’ve come a long way from being kicked out of my house. My parents and I have managed to rekindle our relationship and these days we see eye-to-eye better than we ever have. You could say that my first two years…

Muay Thai

By Nick Goodwin I have begun researching the art of Muay Thai boxing. The reason being is because I have been given the opportunity to create a mural on the wall of a soon-to-be Muay Thai boxing studio. The Remix Project has given me…

For the People

By Nick Goodwin I wonder if it’s strange that I relate my childhood to movies that I watched as a kid. Or children’s show such as Sesame Street. I guess it’s a good thing. I turned out to be polite, kind, respectful and considerate….

Chaos

By Nick Goodwin I’m sitting in my house listening to music and lightning. I’m listening to old school hip hop. I really like the “old school” stuff. I can hear it raining a bit in between songs and the lightning is chiming in whenever…

Live for your element

By Nick Goodwin Fishing is definitely one of my favourite things. I always look forward to the summer because I figure there is a good chance that I will find myself out in the wilderness at least once or twice. I love camping and…

Sunscreen

By Nick Goodwin The sun. To tan or not to tan, that is the question. We question the reliance of the o-zone layer, the efficiency of sunscreen, and our ability to take in the nutrients that the sun’s light provides. For adults everywhere it…

Remix

By Nick Goodwin So far, I have withheld the fact that I am an artist. I draw, paint, write, make music and play sports. My biggest exercise lately has been both graphic design and skateboarding. The story goes like this. I was told about…

I Love Family

By Nicholas Goodwin I love family. There are fights – sometimes we do something stupid – but still somehow we forgive and forget. When I say family I don’t mean strict bloodline relations. There are infinite variances of family throughout the universe. A code…

Introducing Nicholas Goodwin

by Nicholas Goodwin Hello. Nicholas Goodwin here. I love hockey, going to the zoo, doing the dishes, skateboarding and I love to chase my dreams. I am 20 years old. In my life I have seen my tiny world from many angles. I have…

Inspiration

By Nick Goodwin I know what it is like to feel uninspired. Sometimes the only option is to channel this frustration and use your strength of mind. Create an opportunity for moving forward with something. Sometimes you won’t find the inspiration you’re looking for…

1 Love TO

By Nick Goodwin A couple of friends of mine have put together a great website. It is a blog website which showcases Toronto’s arts and entertainment, as well as culture and cause. Toronto’s http://www.1loveto.com is a great place to kill some time. There is…

Appreciation

By Nick Goodwin Sometimes the hardest thing is being able to appreciate something when you know you have it the best. People can be insatiable and often the truth is that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. If people could appreciate…

What is honourable?

By Nick Goodwin What is honourable? My idea of honour is living by a code of unconditional love and trust. I also feel honourable when I practice my abilities as an artist and express myself honestly. I don’t believe in a good defense or…

Happiness Shared

By Nick Goodwin One thing that I believe in is that happiness is most real when it is shared. It is the good and truth of understanding between two individuals. All of the life’s greatest joys are based on a perceived connection. This doesn’t…

Clothing Line

By Nick Goodwin I love to create original clothing. I am a design guy. Not too long ago I took the time to hand paint a whole bunch of plain clothing that I picked out. For some of the garments, I created stencils so…

Music

By Nick Goodwin My best writing is done while listening to music. Music is my vice and my motivation. My parents are the reason why I love music so much. They used to take us on car trips when we were young. Every car…

Remix Fundraiser

by Nick Goodwin Just recently The Remix Project had a fundraiser at Circa nightclub for their “Give Money Make Change” campaign. At this fundraiser members of the project (including myself) were granted the opportunity to showcase their artwork at the event. I had three…

Practicality. What is practical?

by Nick Goodwin I think one of the hardest things about trying to be a successful artist is the reality that your ability to serve your community isn’t entirely practical. I have experienced many types of work apart from art-related jobs and they have…

Twenty-Four Hour Toronto

By Nick Goodwin Are you ever awake late at night and can’t find something to do? Sometimes people want to get out on a weekend but can’t find something creative enough to maintain their interest. This site is full of interesting places that you…
