It’s rather annoying. A lot of people I know are talking about the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief and I haven’t seen it yet. I live in Northern Canada, and we just don’t get the same access to stuff that those in the south get.
But I’ve heard it is amazing, and if you haven’t seen it, and can, do so.
FilKONtario, Ontario’s Filk Music Convention is only two weeks away. This year the con is April 20 – 22, 2012.
There are still some rooms available in the convention room block as of today, but not many. For more information on the convention, please visit the website.

I’m on holiday this week, visiting my mother-in-law, the poet laureate of Temiskaming District. I’m also recuperating from fixing my computer, and other stuff. No, it didn’t include a hangover. I gave up drinking twenty-five years ago, and I have to admit I’m surprised that Molson’s Breweries didn’t go when I did.
I also know about some of the ones that haven’t had contracts signed yet. All I can say about those is that you will be blown away, totally and utterly blown away. I mean what can you do with Bad Mustard?
One of my long-term projects is a book on antique farm equipment. The book is to lean heavily on images, and I’ve visited several shows with my professional photographer daughter to get as many images as we can, both still and video. Here’s some of the videos that we took at one recent show in Markham Ontario, just five miles from our house.
Greetings and salutations! On September 1, 2011 I had the great pleasure of publishing the first two volumes of my Copyright Wars series. They are up on both Amazon and Smashwords, and should be available on the Kobo, IBook, Diesel, and Sony Reader platforms in a few days. I published them under my imprint. Yes, I’m legally a Canadian publisher, you can find me listed on Collections Canada.
