Shows Coming Up…You Going?

I’ve spent the past few days working on these shows we have coming up. I forget that things like long weekends and moving day can affect the things we do: hotels in Peterborough are completely sold out. When I asked why, one hotel concierge gave the reason: “Dog show.” Also Peterborough is in the heart of cottage country in Ontario so I guess that’s what people do on the weekend. Next was finding a trailer for the van. I forgot that this weekend is when the entire city of Montreal moves. Someone came up with the genius idea to have all leases begin and end July 1st, causing traffic and vehicle rental mayhem. Anyway, I had to call around but finally found one. It’s all sorted.

So we hope to see you out this weekend. Come and say hello:

July 3 – Live Lounge, Ottawa, ON (w/ Amos the Transparent)
July 4 – Montreal House, Peterborough, ON (w/ Amos the Transparent)
July 6 – Club Soda, Montreal, QC (Montreal Jazz Fest)

Also Yellow Bird Project has released the t-shirt Neptune designed. I have to admit it was odd seeing her drawing on a shirt worn by a fancy model. Check it out and get your own…they’re super nice and all the proceeds are given to the Pablove Foundation.

Walking Tour of Park-Ex

Yesterday, Neptune and I walked up to Afroditi to get some cookies with sprinkles for her and some pastries for dad. Earlier that morning Neptune rediscovered her Little Tikes digital camera and, after a brief argument about which way the camera should be pointing to take a picture, she was going nuts on the thing. She took over 200 photos on our walk. Initially I thought none of them would turn out due to a delay on the camera from when you press the button to when the photo actually takes. I imagined 200 blurred blobs imported into my iPhoto. But some of them turned out, and when put together give a very interesting perspective of our neighbourhood. Check out the gallery below…I’ve taken the liberty to omit the blurriest ones (which is like half of them). There are still over 100 pics so give it a minute to load (if your computer is an ancient artifact like mine). My faves: watermelons, beer (hunh?), pink rose bush, bicycle, recycling bins, lips (she insisted she put on makeup before we went out), and the very last one (I took it).
