FanExpo Thanks!

Thanks to all who came, bought or just supported us during FanExpo.

Thanks to Brian E for snapping photos, you can see some of them up @supcuztshirt on the twitters.

At the urinal next to me Darth Vader saddled up (he has a zipper??). I leaned over & advised: “Don’t “force” it. Hard to tell with the mask but he seemed less than amused.

8 Truths I Learned From Entourage: No. 6


I didn’t enjoy school. Yeah I was one of those kids, left many a crying or frustrated teacher. So Be It. I didn’t enjoy the structure, the time demands, the lessons…everything sucked about school. Work is not much better. It’s 2011 we’re way past the Industrial Revolution and a farming society. So why hasn’t everything else changed? We may party like it’s 1999 but we work like it’s 1799.

80s Celebration: Madonna!

Couple of years back I had the notion to celebrate the 80s in poetry. Occasionally in this space I’ll post a poem celebrating something or someone gloriously 80s.

Today is Madonna’s 53rd birthday, crazy I know. Take that Lady Gaga!

SXSW Panel Picker: The Innovation Seduction: Musicians Meeting Nerds

The Innovation Seduction: Musicians Meeting Nerds Alright so here it be…our SXSW panel is now live!

It’s called The Innovation Seduction: Musicians Meeting Nerds. It’s about how musicians need to get going and start seeking soft innovations. Mash up the scene, yo!

And you know what? I want to get it. I don’t care about the odds. And I don’t want to get it for my own fame or glory. No.

I want to get it because the folks assembled here the A-Team. They are the best kept secrets but it’s time to blab. They should all be household names, with every move covered by TMZ and in interviews they should be casually remarking they are bigger than Jesus.

Plus I’m too old to do something small.

Introductions: here are the folks on the SXSW panel:

Karim Awad is the Q to my James Bond: when it comes to the technical stuff he always makes me look good. He is the Principal and Creative Director of big time design & communication which…in this small space I can’t even describe all the cool things those gents get into. Karim enjoys painting.

Travis Persaud is a writer, editor for Chart (RIP), Exclaim, Zoomer and I dunno what else. I dunno how many bands he’s seen, maybe he doesn’t other, but he is guy from Almost Famous, he hangs out with the bands. 5-9 Productions is his shift into PR and marketing and as my shrink: dude always takes the time to listen to me.  Travis enjoys quality cigars.

Lana Gay lives in Vancouver blogging, twittering, djing and so much more for CBC3; her delightful show is called Lanarama. Naturally curious always playful she would totally fit in on Pirate Radio (she’s damn funny!). Lana enjoys Scooby-Doo.

So…go: get people to vote. Ring the alarm. Spread the word about this panel and let’s see what can we do to make it happen.

8 Truths I Learned From Entourage: No. 4

Family First

When Big Money comes rolling in it’s important to keep it in the family.

It’s why growing up we play Monopoly with family members. You learn which members are ruthless, which ones handle their money well and which ones just flame out. S’the way the dice rolls sometimes.

Poetry Workshop: I’m Robin Williams!

Today’ll be fun: I’m teaching kids how to write poetry.

I’m privileged to host poetry workshops; the kids & I have a blast.

To get em thinking about types of poetry I’m using:
Jay-Z Empire State
Dr. Seuss’ Oh The Places You’ll Go
Ruby Dee’s I Am Somebody
and Twip a poem I wrote about Spider-Man.

I ain’t Robin Williams-Dead Poets Society but for true this ain’t gonna be your typical boring English class.

8 Truths I Learned From Entourage: No. 3


Rock music has the 27 Club a fateful sad collection of typically talented musicians who only got to 27 felled by drugs or alcohol, meh just name any vice really. Hollywood doesn’t have a club but it does offer its share of cautionary tales.
