Q and A time.
Q: What are you up to these days?
Internet-wise, I am:
Real life wise, I am:
-Speaking at various events all over the map. (If you're interested in having me speak somewhere, sometime, please get in touch via this contact info.)
-Doing some stand up comedy
-Hawking copies of the red paperclip book, which in a fun-filled-fashion, tells the whole story, front to back. (Now in 14 languages! Only read Estonian? Perfect.)
-Making extremely high quality paintings and taking enjoyable pictures.
-Laying down giant club anthems as world famous DJ Dancefloor. Reliable sources say that DJ Dancefloor is blowing up on the West Coast. Seriously, can somebody please call the Fire Department, 'cause the charts are on fire. (Download his hottest club thumping beats here for FREE!)
-Traveling to many exotic locations.
-Trying my very best to be the world's finest husband. (Dom has a cooking school in Montreal called L'Armoire du Haut! Take a class!)(In English and en francais!)
-Looking for these guys.
In the recent or not-so-recent past I:
-Had a photo exhibit called in Montreal at the wonderful Galerie Armatta.
-Watched my brother Scotty and his pal Fiddy hitchhike to 50 states in 50 days.
-Named a cat.
-Made a googly eye collage of Dennis Rodman.
-Happened upon my doppelganger at a nightclub.
-Both of them.
-Discovered a secret lookout.
-Crated an obscure regional license plate-based flickr group.
-Learned about SAXercise.
-Got vaccinated against H1N1.
-Went camping with Retired Movie Star Dave Leroux.
Q: Are you really looking for these guys?
A: Why not?
But also, A: We have no idea who they are. It's an international manhunt.
Q: What's happening with the Red Paperclip House?
A: Last year I announced we were going to trade the red paperclip house. Since then, hundreds of offers have poured in for the house. The response was incredible. Nothing short of completely overwhelming from a choice of potential trades standpoint. Granted, most people offered a red paperclip for the house, which was cool, but my main goal in making the trade was to keep the best interests of the Kipling community in mind. Long story short, I couldn't make up my mind. So, I recently decided to donate the red paperclip house to the Town of Kipling. It's a community asset, and along with the world's largest red paperclip, a great tourist attraction! There are many cool things planned for the red paperclip house.
Q: What sort of ideas are in the works for the red paperclip house?
A: That's where you come in! If you'd like to get involved in the future of the red paperclip house, please go straight to the source and contact the fine folks at the Town of Kipling: firstname.lastname@example.org or 306-736-2515.
Q: Whereabouts do you live these days?
A: Mostly Montreal, with some Kipling and Vancouver thrown in for good measure.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Well, Dom and I are getting itchy feet. We plan to address that for the first half of 2010, and all the while keep my eyes peeled for another red paperclip!
Q: Seriously, you couldn't think of better metaphors than that?
A: Sorry, I'll work on it.
So that's about it for now folks. Please have a happy December, and never forget where we all came from.
