The above photo is dedicated to that fine, young man I met on Friday. That’s about all the effort I’ve got.
Here’s a bunch of photos and attempts of witty commentary of some decent to good times that have been inspiring me lately…
…Matt loves me…can’t you tell?…
…I was trying to make this shot kind of like an upskirt…
I think that’s about it. Well, it’s not, my life is waaaay more interesting than a blog entry but that’s all I got for now. I’ll leave you with a video I’m really feeling. I love the story, the costumers, the set design and her boobs.

Here is Rape Whistle Fan Club’s debut! Well, the debut was actually on Friday as part of Music Waste’s video competition. Here’s a photo of us chatting with the judges…
…and a photo of the judges…
…all of whom I have a connection to. Here was our bit…Bob on the right, is my co-worker. Paul in the middle, I’ve made out with. And Taz on the end, I’ve slept with (because we used to date.) So we told them that if our video didn’t win, it means I’m a shitty worker, a bad kisser and a terrible lay. Like I said, we didn’t win. But we still had fun!
Tomorrow I’m being flown to Toronto for this amazing press tour thing. I’m really excited. I’ll provide more details upon my return later this week. It’s going to be a busy few days. But I’m sooooo excited! You’ll understand why once I’ve filled you in…soon, soon.

Click here to listen to episode 24 of the People’s Program Project.
Holy smoly do I have good news for you. A little while ago, while I was co-organizing the most recent installment of Rain City Chronicles, I contacted Bob Kronbauer to be one of our speakers. He’s one of those guys who’s everywhere, with his hand in everything, all of which is inspiring and awesome. I totally admired his accomplishments and what he did in the community. After Rain City, we became friends and he showed an interest in my podcast. He asked me if I’d like to put it out through his website, Vancouver Is Awesome, and I didn’t really have to think about it.
So yeah, the People’s Program Project is now a part of Vancouver is Awesome. What that means is he’ll be setting up a link from his website with a write up by me about each episode. That write up will be different than the one I put up here. It also means, I’ll basically get a larger audience. Really, there was no reason for me not to pair with such a great website. I really believe in what Bob’s doing and I’m so honoured to be a part of it. I’ll also be involved in a bunch of VIA’s other projects, including this one, which is bound to be very good. So go.
So in this episode, I interview Bob about what it’s like to be someone who’s held down so many cool titles and how he got where he is today.
I also interview my dad, Avi Lev. I did this interview last year when I was in Toronto, dealing with some heavy shit. I was writing for Vice at the time and my dad didn’t quite get it. He’s considered to be one of the best editors in this country – Gemini award winning with an impressive resume (The Journal, The National, The Fifth Estate.) When I lucked into a journalism job, he was pretty proud of me. But when I decided to choose a different path, he didn’t quite understand why. So we had a chat about that. If I sound nervous, it’s because I am. I don’t think I respect anyone as much as I respect my dad. He’s really hard to impress too.
If there’s anything I’ve learned from my dad, it’s how to be an artist. That is what I am at my core and that is what he is at his core. It’s too bad he doesn’t let his artistic side shine more often.
What did you learn or inherit from your father or male guardian? I’d like to know. Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In other news, you should read this. Particularly if you’re a journalist. It’s not even funny how dead on it is.
What else? Oh, Rape Whistle Fan Club just finished editing our first video. I just watched the final cut. And then I watched it 10 more times. Holy shit, I am so impressed (with myself. And everyone involved.) It turned out 100% better than I could have imagined. I can’t wait to post it. It’s going to premier at Music Waste so get ready.
Oh, to follow up on my week away in solitary confinement…didn’t write my book. Instead, I wrote this, which I’m actually pretty pleased about. I think I learned that if it’s not in you, you can’t push it. I think that’s a valuable lesson, don’t you?

So my writing partner/dear friend Ayma went to Mexico recently and brought me back the above: a rape whistle shaped like Jesus on the cross. On the back it says “Protect Us.” It’s a fitting gift since her and I are in a sketch comedy thingamado called Rape Whistle Fan Club.
Things have been busy as usual and it’ll probably stay that way until eternity. I’m in the middle of organizing two work-related trips. One involves a roadtrip, the other, total seclusion. Looking forward to them both.
I wrote this for the Canadian Press. I’d like to hear your first-time pet experiences. Apparently, depression isn’t that uncommon for first time pet owners. Things with the Dutchmeister and I are moving along swimmingly…she’s without a doubt, my animal soul mate. She is everything I could have hoped for in a dog. Except she’s totally obsessed with me. We’re working on making her a little more open to other people. Tips?
Going to get ready for Dine Out Vancouver’s media preview. I’ve been starving myself all day so I’m hungry and excited. I hope I pace myself because I do tend to stuff my face with little caution…I’ve been looking forward to this all month.

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!
