It is what it is

A few people have mentioned that the VUE Weekly ‘Best of Edmonton’ is popularity contest. Sure, I can see that. Many have congratulated me, and I embrace that too. Recognition, in any form is great.

Shibboleths (or ‘I love the interrobang’)

One of my favourite things about being a father is yelling words. I yell words all the time now. I would say it is my superpower, but I really don’t want to pigeon hole myself at such an early age. I’ve got a long way to go and anything can happen. I’m still holding out… Read More ›
