Tractor VS IPhone and the peace it brings...

So I ran over my phone the other day while at work. I am going to be working with my old business partner for the winter and it has been awesome. I was driving a tractor moving wood and stump grindings and long story short ran over my phone. The phone didn't shatter, or even die. It still works but the screen is all white. All white ain't all right.

At first I was freaked out. I didn't remember anyones number and I had to call my Gf's work to get her cell number to tell her that I was phoneless. So sad.

The cool thing was that I had peace and quiet. Being phoneless was actually nice. I spent the whole day undistracted and in my head. I had a show to play (Voices, musicians for Mental Illness which was awesome BTW) so I was going over songs and thinking about that. I am getting the phone fixed and I will once again be plugged into the matrix.

I really did feel good being unplugged and I want to be more vigilant with how I use my phone and how plugged in I am. Anyway, I will see how that works out.

So the show was awesome. The people I played with were incredible,  (Lynne Hanson Amanda Rheaume Ana Miura) so talented and so cool. It was a full house and very intense. We all played and told personal stories and I had a great time talking about my experiences with mental illness and making fun of myself. I had a great time making people laugh. I really enjoyed that, being able to get people laughing while delivering some crazy stories. I really feel playing these types of intimate shows is going to be a big part of promoting The Bad Times Bible. Storytelling, songs.. it is so much damn fun!

I want to thank amy Read for putting together an amazing show. It was an honor to be a part of and I can't wait to do it again!
Peace out brown trout.

The Link to CTV Interview..

Here is the link to the interview I did Monday, short sweet and sexy! lol

Monday, 7 November 2011


So I did a morning TV show this morning (CTV NEWS) to promote an upcoming show I'm a part of. ( The show is to raise awareness around mental health issues and to de stigmatize mental illness. During the interview I was talking about how I lost my mind and was really glad to get the cancer diagnosis because I was thinking about blowing my brains out. In my mind (at the time) dying from cancer was more "honorable" and acceptable in society.

I realized I was on a morning show and tried not to laugh thinking about what I just said. Those poor people at home eating their cream of wheat.  I am really grateful that I went through everything I have gone through and I am glad I have the opportunities to speak about the crazy ugly shit people don't like talking about or are afraid to talk about for fear of being shamed. I know that my book and my efforts are going to help people. I feel it inside and am really ramping up to kick some ass. I know it in my guts. I'm going to make a difference. Well, I have another TV show to do so I best go get pretty.

I might not have etiquette but I will give it to you straight from the heart. I am glad for that.

Sorry Mom. I'm doing the best I can.

In a concrete bunker in an industrial park in the Nations Capital there is a madman at work. I'm listening to Thats me kid.This book thing is craziness boy. Feel like my head is gonna blow off. Had a great meeting tonight with my buddy Ben who is my man in charge of video production for the BTB promo. We are going to do our first video on Dec 3rd. It is gonna be fun, scary and exciting. I'm really looking forward to it! The new kitten (Seamus aka "the Purricane") is keeping things interesting. Thats it for now, gotta get back to it... Much love ya'll..
