All's Hallowed Eve

So, Halloween is fast approaching. There's a crapload of things to do here in Ottawa. Personally, I'm going to be at the Witches Gathering over at Barrymore's on the 30th. It's $15 in advance or $20 at the door. I'm performing in the ritual, so I get in for free. For a really good list of happenings this Halloween weekend, check out this week's Ottawa Xpress.

I'm also going to recommend that you watch the special two-hour episode of ZeD TV entitled "Night of the Living ZeD." It's on tonight at the show's usual time (11:25 p.m.), and also on Halloween night at midnight. It's on CBC, of course.

P.S.: There's a chance that a film crew from ZeD is gonna come out and do a segment on yours truly in the very near future. I'll tell you more when and if it happens. If you haven't done so already, you should check out my ZeD profile, where you can find several of my poems (both written and recorded).

I'm not very good at this blogging thing, am I? I never seem to have time to update it. The Canadian Spoken Wordlympics have come and gone. You can check out the results here. The Ottawa teams failed to make it to the team finals, but Oni snagged third place in the Francophone Indie Final, and John Akpata (host of Monday Night Scribes on CHUO and the columnist behind "House of Trouble" in the Ottawa XPress) took home third in the Canadian Indie Final and second in the World Indie Final. Shortly after the Wordlympics he snatched victory away from yours truly at the inaugural Capital Slam. This brand new event is hosted by Greg Frankson (a.k.a. Ritallin) and Elissa Molino, two of my teammates from the Wordlympics. Their first night was awesome and we all expect it to get bigger and better from here. The next one will be in November and I hope to have details up before then.
