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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Media dogs

Media dogs
The woman with the camera from CBC loved the dogs, but since only Pork Pie and Meatloaf came out to help, the rest were howling away. There is a great clip in her final video of the ones who had to stay on the island howling.

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.

Objectification

Objectification
I heard Tori Allen on Metro Morning talking about the GOTCHA exhibit.  An installation which asks people wandering around during Nuit Blanche to photograph a stranger on the street who is an “ethnic” and send the photograph to be displayed in real time, as part of the installation. “Artists and audiences attending Nuit Blanc [...]

QotD: Is This Thing On?

QotD: Is This Thing On?
When was the last time you had to speak in front of a group?  How did you feel? The last “public speaking” I did was on July 28th as part of a CBC panel hosted by Jian Ghomeshi on Sounds Like Canada. We were discussing Street Meat. In Bangkok, there are the satay shacks. In Hong Kong, the noodle stands. In Mexico City, the freshl [...]

Lex on Street Meat

Lex on Street Meat
Yes it’s true, I’m going to be CBC 1 discussing Street Meat with Jian Ghomeshi on Sounds Like Canada Friday. I’m hoping the conversation will expand beyond just Street Meats since the hotdog cart is the strongest representative in Toronto’s Street Meats category. However there are plenty of other Street Treats to be ha [...]

Metro Morning Woke Me Up

Metro Morning Woke Me Up
Not on the radio, but on my cell phone. Yup, they called at 7:30 this morning to schedule an interview for tomorrow morning (that’s Thursday June 15) around 6:40am. I’ll be interviewed by Andy Barrie on CBC Metro Morning about the sale of TheApprenticeBlog.com.  Just 4 hours before the auction closes. NOTE: time change – I&# [...]

Please Stay Tuned

Please Stay Tuned
Yes, it would make sense that I would post about the amazing launch we had. It would make sense that I would post about Friday’s interview with CBC, CityTV’s coverage on Wednesday’s news, and tonight’s news @ 6pm (with Jee Yun Lee). It would make sense that I post about the great people who helped us by working the eve [...]

Lex to Zed

Lex to Zed
So here I am sitting at my desk, thinking about why I’m not taking the afternoon to go photograbbing… and what do I find? 2 of my photos were on Zed Real’s Jan 24th episode… Flickr Moments 4.2 These photos were show in other episodes of Zed Real. Link: Zed Real – CBC Television. Click through to “Watch [...]
