My great truths

Every so often someone has the courage to look into another's eyes and reveal some great truth about how they are perceived. Here are some of my great truths presented here, on my blog, where no one will read them:

  • Always suggest the wrong thing
  • Always do things the hard way
  • Not Mechanically Inclined/Not handy 
  • Can't Cook 
  • Can't Act
I'm sure more will arise over time.

New Etsy Shop

I have started an Etsy Shop to clear out some old stuff from the back of the Slashboing closet. Shop away, people who still read a blog that hasn't updated since 2014.

Lost Skeleton Kickstarter

10 years ago Larry Blamire made a the cult classic "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra". A great sendup of 50's science fiction monster movies. He followed that with a parody of 1960's adventure serials with "The Lost Skeleton Returns Again". Now he wants to complete the trilogy in a big way with "The Lost Skeleton Walks Among Us". And a kickstarter is the best way to fund it

10 Bullets by Tom Sachs

There is some satire in this, but who doesn't want to work in a space where there is such emphasis on organization, thoroughness, cleanliness, and communication.

Improv Guild Flood


For the last two years I have been performing improv with the Improv Guild and it has been a life changing experience for me.
 
In June, a major flood devastated the city of Calgary. Our Improv Guild, a not for profit theatre society, was caught in the middle of the disaster. Our beloved theatre was filled with river water for days leaving behind inches of thick, muddy sludge. Thanks to countless volunteers, we survived. But we sustained more than $20,000 in damages and losses.

We are seeking financial support in the amount of $5,000. This amount will help cover the costs of rebuilding our studio and the replacement of assets essential to our programming. We’re not asking for the entirety of what we lost, just enough to get us back on our feet. Any help is truly appreciated.

This flood hit us at a really hard time. September marks our 10th anniversary as an organization. As a result we had been planning to significantly increase programming and celebrate the success of our small, hardworking arts organization. Because of this flood everything is up in the air.

What We Need & What You Get
We are seeking $5000 in support to help cover the costs of:
  1. Cleaning supplies, paint, drywall and building supplies
  2. Ruined furniture such as couches, shelves and tables
  3. The cost of 2 refrigerators that were lost
  4. Ruined speakers and other electronic equipment
  5. Replacement of props and costumes
In return, we are offering the following perks depending on your level of support:
  1. Invitation to volunteer and donor appreciation show
  2. Free tickets to Boardwalk Calgary Improv Festival
  3. A plaque on our studio wall with your name on it
If we do not meet our fundraising goal any donations will still be used as outlined above.
Be a flood angel. Even $10 will go a long way to help.
