5,000+ KM

I would like to apologize for my 'lax blog maintenance; it has been nearly 2 weeks since we last caught up, and I feel horrible for losing touch. Put some tea on, sit down, shut up and read all of the following words I type (and enjoy)...

Apparently I had a sizable "boner" during this Kodak moment.

Just today, we managed to surpass the 5,000 km mark for our voyage thus far! This evening, I am in a hotel in Antigonish watching some quality cable television and enjoying the luxury of "Free WiFi Wireless Internet!" The past two weeks have been busy ones; we got to spend approximately 22 hours (yes, in total) on the lovely isle of Prince Edward.

Our visit to the island consisted of arriving, eating, sleeping, and performing. We did happen to learn from a school that the mud on PEI is red because of copper. Fascinating!

We crossed "The World's Longest Covered Bridge" in Hartland...

We went to Pugwash two separate times in a week where Kim hurt herself by using her shin to combat a piece of wood...

A stitch was required to close the wound... poor Kimbo.

Another interesting plot point to our visit in Pugwash, was the children's amazement at our arrival. We had a mob of dozens of kids standing around asking if we were the Doodlebops (a popular children's television show). Apparently, someone amongst the teaching staff thought it would be a good idea to let the younglings think that The Doodlebops were coming to their school.

Who can blame them?


I like to call this piece, "Dicking around in a mall".

Myself in my 'Eric' attire for 'Bump In The Night' as I spy on children.

One thing that I would like to bring up that hasn't been touched on as of yet, that is the two people who are solely responsible for the dummies used in 'Liars'...

A big thanks goes out to Kevin and Theresa for their hard work and dedication, as they are living inside of the dummies for the entire duration of the tour. These guys are sports. Keep it up guys!

That's all for now! Next week we are headed to Cape Breton for the entire week so we shall have some stories to tell! Speak to you soon. Merry Christmas!

New Nouveau Brunswick

Whoa there! We just got back (on Friday) from putting on the first shows EVER in New Brunswick by Neptune Theatre! We're kind of a big deal.

Prepare yourself for plenty of photographs paired with witty one-line summaries!

Our first stop in ye olde New Brunswick was Chipman Forest Avenue School which happens to be Mrs. Kim "The Feather" Parkhill's former stomping grounds!

Afterwards, we headed to Kim's uncle's cabin (where we would be staying on Monday, Tuesday and some o' Wednesday). He just so happens to be a plastic surgeon so we were located primarily square in the middle of the lap of luxury for a few days..

P.I.M.P... 'nuff said.

Upon the sight of the monstrous cabin, Bayne lost control of all sexual urges and inserted himself into one of our dummies.

To combat cabin fever, Gill & Adam combated each other.

I'm not sure how, but Adam received a bloody lip from one Ms. Gillian Ferrier. One tough cookie.

Hot & Steamy.

..something Kim thought was worth taking a picture of.

During my time at the cabin, I spent a copious amount of time nature-hiking where I wrote, walked, broke sticks, and experienced the best nature has to offer including frogs, canadian geese, and a beaver (or a loch ness monster)...

Three days came, and three days went and the day came for us to leave the cabin. We moved on to a motel, did a couple shows and made our way home. On our way to Halifax, we stopped at a Big Stop where a truck accidentally scratched our door, and continued to leave; it's okay though because I got their licence plate on my cell phone...

And last but not least, I would like to share with all of you, a little piece of me, a little piece of who I am, and that is, my uncontrollable desire for comparing myself to Jesus H. Christ...

Until next time, reach for the stars!
