Hear me on the radio

January 15, 2016


Hey folks! Last week I was sitting around minding my own business when the CBC got in touch with me and said “hey, want to be on the radio… today?”. I said sure, and spent the next several hours frantically preparing files and transcribing lyrics for them. Then I hustled off to Queen Street and […]

Hide Your Wife, Hide Your Kids

May 4, 2015


It seems I can’t avoid crazy cars, and this weekend yielded up one of the greatest of all time. I just KNOW that this guy bought this ride, a Dodge Ram pickup, for this reason alone. Sweet merciful Jesus. Just imagine that this gentleman, who shockingly appeared to be in his early to mid 20s, […]

Ottawa’s Craziest Automobile

April 30, 2015


The other day I was cruising down Somerset street, as I often do, when my mind imploded at the sight of what appeared in the rearview mirror. It was a truck, seemingly, but oh what a truck. We managed to slow our progress and hit a fortuitous red light, at which point I sprinted out of […]

St. John’s whirlwind tour

September 25, 2011


This past week business interests found me whisked away to St. John’s Newfoundland.  The trip was primarily unremarkable (no scandals, no treasures recovered, no feral children discovered), however there are a few things worth sharing, that I will dutifully share. My pals Paul & Steve – native Newfoundlanders both – have long extolled the merits […]

The Joys of Heckling or Being a Jackass in Public and Getting Away With It

August 6, 2011


I played baseball as a child for years.  Well, not baseball, actually, softball.  They’re different in many important respects (the good athletes play baseball, the slouches play softball) but identical in one important way:  they are both hopelessly boring to watch and play, unless you are the pitcher or the batter.  Baseball’s popularity is almost […]
