Wow. The local blog world is on board for Rain City, which is really heartwarming. Here are some links to some press we’ve got/done in the last few days…
Sad magazine chatted with Karen. Note the beautiful photo of her. It’s hard not to.
Beyond Robson really loves us.
Here’s a little preview we did for our sponsor, Vancouver Is Awesome.
There was talk of some radio interviews come Monday but I don’t want to get too excited. Wow. The support is really wonderful and touching.

So, I’ll start with the bad news first. Are you sitting? The Starbucks on the Northeast corner of Thurlow and Robson, across from the Starbucks on the Southwest corner of Thurlow and Robson, is closing down. That Starbucks inspired this scene from my favourite movie:
Take a minute and try to compose yourself. You ok? Good. Well, have a got some great news for you. My friends Dave and Graham, of my favourite podcast, Stop Podcasting Yourself, have been added to the podcasts on MaximumFun.org. This means they’ll be getting a wider audience, which is great because everyone should be listening to them. Oh how they make me laugh, how they make me laugh. So yah for that! I’m so happy for them.

Here’s a photo of Rape Whistle Fan Club’s first shoot starring Cam MacCleod of Manhussy, Ryan Steele the Ryan Steele Show and Dutchie the doggy. Shot by Kar Harvey and styled by Daughters of Dawn. For those of you who don’t know, RWFC is a sketch thingy started by my writing partner Ayma Letang (far right) and myself. Today was fantastic…oh how we laughed. The video should be done in a month or so. I’ll keep y’all posted!

The line up for the second installment of Rain City Chronicles has been announced! (Coming from a journalism background, that’s not a good leading sentence ’cause it’s past tense. But it’s the sentiment that I’m stressing so forgive me and read on.)
RCC is an on-going storytelling night that was co-founded by Karen Pinchin and Lizzy Karp and me (all pictured above.) Storytellers are given up to seven minutes to tell a story about the evening’s theme. This time around, the theme is luck. It takes place on Monday, March 29th at the Western Front, 7 p.m.
So here’s who’s going to be on the bill:
Actor Nadiya Chettiar
Comedian, activist and author Charlie Demers
CBC Radio 3 host Lana Gay
Communications whiz Pamela Hart
Guardian blogger Colin Horgan
Vancouver Is Awesome founder Bob Kronbauer
Globe and Mail reporter Marsha Lederman
Journalist Erin Millar
Librarian Rebecca Slaven, accompanied by Andre of The Obvious Peaks and Valleys
With musical guest and former P3 interviewee Louise Burns aka Moonshiner!
CANNOT WAIT! ALL CAPS EXCITED!

Confidential to the handsome fellow with thick-framed glasses and stylish but simple outfit who I saw on the Cambie Street Bridge a few days ago: Please find me. You were something out of a dream. (Unless you’re socially retarded. Or an alcoholic. Or lazy. Or have dad issues. Then, just keep walking.)
