Just a reminder that Jimmy & co will be playing Van Gogh’s at 9:30pm on July 7th in Guelph.
I look forward to the show and seeing some familiar faces.

This is so awesome, I am a huge fan of Doug Stanhope (not for everyone) and I just saw him on Charlie Booker (Newswipe) BBC wearing one of a series of hats I designed for the US Market. I am so happy that a comedian I think is super funny, likes a piece of my work enough to wear it on international television. (He is in no way affiliated with Moosehead Breweries Ltd, nor is it implied, explicitly or implicitly). I just think it’s cool that a guy famous enough to have done The ManShow on Comedy Central with Joe Rogan, and is a known comedian likes something I worked on.

Plus I don’t get much of a chance to show off work to family overseas so that was a cool realization.

Cheers!

In the last 4 years I have had the utmost pleasure of doing CrossFit at a great local (Mississauga) gym, called Element CrossFit. Soon the company I work for is going to move far far away from here and I won’t be able to attend regularly anymore. Much to my dismay. That place holds a lot of great memories, friends and achievements for me. I just felt like I should give them a solid rousing and glowing report card, as thanks to their mentoring and coaching I was able to get into great shape for my wedding in 2010.

The below photo is of me dead lifting 315lbs. For a guy who weighed in around 127lbs for a very very long time (Thanks to my Crohn’s Disease), I take great pride in that. Not to mention just how great the community atmosphere is at Element, and just how gracious both Alex & Rachel are! Best wishes to all of you at Element.

I’ll always have a great low carb Cracked Canoe beer in my fridge for you should you stop by the Liberty Village Office.

I will see you guys again before the big move at the end of this month.

For all of you Sci-Fi fiends out there, I would suggest going to see the new Ridley Scott film, preferably in an Imax 3D with dolby 7.1 surround sound, to really get a good sense of the scale in this epic (not quite prequel). I hope the sequel gets made within the next 2-3 years. Although I hear there may be a Blade Runner follow-up movie in the works too (which I would be very excited to see, as I do love the 80’s sci-fi classic, Director’s cut, no voice-over).

It isn’t another Alien movie, so get that out of your head right now. Similar in tone, and look & feel, but this isn’t LV-426.

I say go see it with an open mind, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. I know that I’ll go again. Perhaps I’ll see you there.

Now for the dog lovers out there, here is a picture of our two year old White Shepherd / Greyhound mix enjoying his 2nd birthday.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Me!

I may be blunt but I’m not completely heartless.
