I have to finish Saint Aggie’s ’84 in the next two weeks. That is the deadline I’ve set for myself. This morning as I sloshed through the ice and slush I thought through the directions in which the play is going to go. Some of the ideas are going to shake things up considerably. On my headphones was Radio 3 again. I love that Danny Michel song, “Switchman” that’s from last year’s Sunset Sea record. I’ve heard it a few times on R3 in past couple of weeks. The “Switchman” in the song is the guy that switches us between the tracks as we chug along rails of our lives where we have little of no control. It’s all up to him, the “Switchman”. Well, “Switchman”, just let me finish writing this damned show, let me figure out how to fix scene 3 and don’t let me slip on this f#@KINg ice.

Listened to an interview with King Cobb Steelie on Radio 3 this morning. (They’re celebrating 20 years as a band). I remember meeting them a few times around T.O. in the 90s when we were there all the time. Great band. Made me feel like it wasn’t too crazy to be putting a new record out after 17 years! And another good omen: CD BABY has sold out of FAMOUS LAST WORDS and it’s only been up on their site for 3 days…they just sent me an urgent message asking for a re-stock. That’s pretty cool…of course, they only stocked 5 copies. But this time they’re asking for 12. We’re moving up in the world.

As I set out running this morning the wind was blowing and the snow was beginning to fall. Josh Klassen’s spring storm had arrived…and it hasn’t stopped since…14 hours later. Uggghhhhh!!!!

Tomorrow the photo will be white again.

  • A photo from another world… February 15, 2012
    Here it is. The first glimpse of the next cast of Saint Aggie’s ’84. Yes, the photo is bit grainy and slightly unclear, reminding me a little of a photo from early space exploration, an early moon probe, transmitted back to earth slowly via radio waves and taking hours to receive, decipher and print. Of […]
