20/20 on ABC has a report on one red paperclip tonight. 10PM Eastern (no idea about other times - check your local listings!)(There's that TV Guide-sounding-me again.....actually, I did an interview with TV guide on Tuesday, so look for that soon too!)
Still a bit overwhelmed by everything that's happened over the last couple days. Kipling put on a welcome for Dom and I that was absolutely unbelievable. Definitely worthy of a double adjective. More than 400 people showed up, there were no fewer than seven TV cameras there, and of course, being in Canada, there was a Mountie. Yep, it's not everyday you sign a title deed to a house, but it's really not every day when that very same title deed is witnessed by a Mountie. So rad. So "The Simpsons-ish". And so noble. If Kipling was in the states, I'm pretty sure an eagle would've been there to witness the deed. With all due respect to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, I think we can all agree that the only thing that could come close, and perhaps surpass, having the noble, proud signature of a Mountie upon the deed would be the all-to-rare signature of an eagle. You just don't get more noble than an eagle.
Anyhoo, it's been great to finally meet and spend time with everyone from Kipling I've spoken to over the phone over the last week or two. Also been cool to spend some time with my family away from the media bonanza insanity I've been the center of as of late. I'm still very interested in doing every interview, but it's just that, well, since my cell phone doesn't have coverage here and we don't have a phone in the house (just got the power turned on yesterday), I'm slightly unreachable. If it's urgent, contact Bert Roach here in Kipling. He's got phones and stuff.
We've been busy getting things around the house ready for the move-in (taking out a wall today) but if you really need to get a hold of me today, Bert'll be a great point man. Gonna upload lots of pictures and videos over the weekend, so stay tuned for lots more good stuff coming up!
K, gotta go knock down a wall - Kyle
UPDATE 3: Best video showcasing massive mispronounciation of Saskatchewan yet, right here. Hopefully an indication of things to come!
UPDATE 2: I didn't post this, but I did link to it.
UPDATE: here's some more vids!
In a previous post, I incorrectly said that Canadian anchorman legend and Kent Brockman lookalike, Lloyd Robertson, had reported on the project. He didn't. He was off that night. But alas, tonight was THE night. Thanks Lloyd. The trifecta is complete.
