Respect Individuality. A Message to Parents and Non-Parents Alike.

“You are your parent’s child.” –┬áPeople who are angry at someone else. “When we become originals, we become irreplaceables” –┬áTaylor Negron. One of the many reasons I never wanted to have children was a fear of comparison. It is spectacularly unfair and at times offensive when parents compare their children to the opposite parents in […]

Real Writing Reflections

Fairly recently, I attended a comedy show at a local club. Once in a while it is worth going to see someone try to deliver the goods live on stage. The mid-card comedian bombed very badly. So badly that they were booed off the stage. The material wasn’t working and the audience responded swiftly. I […]

Content Control & Social Media – A Short Refresher

Summer is here. Which means your social media probably has a few summer pics. Pics of the cottage, the water near the cottage, and the food being eaten at the cottage…all for your viewing pleasure on Facebook, Twitter, Instacoffee (my nickname for Instagram) and other platforms.

The documentary side of the business occasionally offers something more. Whether an account of a historical event, or an outright mocking by way of brilliant rock and roll fakery […]

More Risk Taking & Writing Worth

My most recent script of short stories is nearing completion. Tentative plan is to release “Throwing Dice” sometime this fall. There has been so much that I have learned in the process of writing satire. I make no secret of the fact that I am not a stand-up comedian nor do I ever have a […]

Politics & Humour

They just don’t seem to mix anymore. It seems to me that the most successful Canadian humour talent that has been able to cross-over into more opportunities are people who branch out beyond political humour. Politicians certainly deserve to be the butt of many jokes. It is the nature of the business. Regardless of what […]
