Chicken Farmers Profile Lex

Chicken Farmers Profile Lex
Box of Chickens — Originally uploaded by LexnGer The Chicken Farmer’s of Canada blog – Chicken Feeds profiled me recently in their new series of Food Blogger Profiles. This is the interview that I needed to find a euphamism for “pissed off” for, I ended up using “upset”. Not as accurate or as [...]

5YAT: I Blame CBC For My Meltdown

5YAT: I Blame CBC For My Meltdown
26 December, 2004 – Cold & Windy –14º [This post is part of the 5 Years Ago Today Series] Mainland: still wide open in HUGE patches and the gap is gaping. Beautiful ice structures where the ice formed against the rocks and then lifted off them with the tides. Glen-side: Looks like 8-10” thick when I walked out parallel to Long Beach. Bi [...]

Lex’s Busy Week In Media

Lex’s Busy Week In Media
This week was a surprisingly busy week for me in media. Especially since I didn’t really do anything media-worthy this week. Oh sure, I’m working on HoHoTO again, but none of this attention came from that. Here’s where I showed up: National Post – Can Seaton House remake save George Street? I’m asked my opinion as longtime area resident [...]

We will, we will Blog you!

We will, we will Blog you!
From Rick Spence‘s Sweep! Sweep! to Rannies photomontage of the seating chart last night’s adventure in National Television has been pretty effectively blogged. Add in Ryan & Adam‘s backstage video and you’ll have the whole experience… sans the kickin’ brunch with Eden & Kate, but that was just for [...]

Test The Nation Now With Lex, Kate & Rannie!
The 21st century: have you been paying attention? This century is only in its first decade and already there’s a test? I know many of you don’t watch television… but would you turn on CBC if you knew I was going to be on it?  What if you knew, for certain, that I’d be doing something other than shilling CheapEats? How about [...]

50 Paces: A Life Of It’s Own

50 Paces: A Life Of It’s Own
I’ve been back in Toronto for over a week now and it seems that the 50 Paces Project has taken on a life of it’s own. Sue told me that her friend, who works in Social Services, is using 50 Paces as an allegory to increase intra-family communications with her client. How cool is that!?!? Grant Kerr’s article ran in the Teleg [...]

Media, media, media

Media, media, media
Friday was designated photo-hanging day. We were joined by Mary (seen above) from CBC TV, Grant & Cindy from the Telegraph Journal. They each walked across the river to meet us at the first tree. Then came with us as we hung photos on the first 10 trees. Constantly asking each other to get out of their shots of the trees and us hangin [...]

CBC Morning

CBC Morning
To be in town for a 7:45am interview, I needed to meet Sandy at the store between 7am and 7:10am. Not so big a deal if I hit the river at 6:40am with the dogsled. Well that is if the dogs bother to move slightly faster than molasses. They didn’t. Then they dumped of on my ass halfway down the hill. Twice. When I pointed out they were ba [...]

CBC this morning

CBC this morning
Yes, it’s true, I was on the CBC this morning talking about the 50 Paces Project… and yes, my typing has improved because I’m using a real keyboard.  I have 150 photos to label that need me to have internet access to match the label with the photo.  Kindly my friends Sandy & MJ are letting me hid out in the basement with [...]

Trees In!

Trees In!
All the trees are in – woo hoo! And someone told the CBC about the project. Now I’ve been invited in for an interview tomorrow morning at 7:30am. I was hoping dad could come too, but logistically it’s not going to work.

Jason Turner’s Cartoon Profile

Jason Turner’s Cartoon Profile
As mentioned before, Jason Turner, the illustrator, did a profile of me in the current Broken Pencil. It’s out, it’s great and with his permission  I’ve posted this frame from the whole strip. It’s kind of odd seeing yourself in a cartoon strip.  Cool, but odd.  Especially when someone hits the mark as well as Jason di [...]

The New Edition of Broken Pencil

The New Edition of Broken Pencil
In August I was approached by Lindsay Gibb, the Editor of Broken Pencil, asking if I would consider being a guinea pig for a new feature in the magazine. Each edition, starting with the one you see on the right, they will be inviting an illustrator to create a profile of someone they think is "profile-worthy".     Since [...]
