Attack ads

I don’t pretend to understand the nuances of politics. But when election time rolls around I review the policies of the candidates and watch a debate or two. And I pay attention to who actually answers the questions put to them, and to who runs ads that don’t talk about their own ideas.

Attack ads only tell me you don't have a plan - if you did, you would have spent the money to tell me why to vote for you, not why to not vote for the other guy. I'm looking at you, Ontario PC Party.

They’re just vain

So at my second-to-last show during JFL42 a young man with a charming English accent asked me "Why do people take photos at these shows? They're just vain and wanting to say 'look what I was at that you weren't' right?"

JFL42 2017

JFL42 is over and I loved it. But man, am I tired! Next year I'm taking the time off! Of the 10 days, one day I didn't see anything and one day I only saw one show - and I went to a tiny concert in the middle - and yet I still was able to see 24 shows, 38 separate performers and presenters.
