Comfy chair. Red wine. Wall of records. This man is refined. Do make a point of catching his performance @thatgoodwill this Saturday night. If you don't go to this show, you'll hear all about it later and think to yourself "shit . I shoulda went."
Uncle Jacob pawn shop was right down the block from my first apartment on Spadina Avenue. The first time I ever set foot in there in 2001, I found a copy of "Get on the Good Foot" on Polydor for .35 cents.
Red-sided garter snake. We saw thousands of these last weekend at the snake dens in Narcisse, Manitoba. This one did not appreciate being picked up and sprayed a foul smelling secretion on the picker-upper. They also bite as one little girl found out. Luckily they're not venomous.
