The Steven Truscott Story, and MG3 (Montreal Guitar Trio)

It's a twofer-one today, folks!

Here's my review of "Steven: The Steven Truscott Story", over at Workshop Theatre. Especially riveting for Canadians, and even more timely now that our (I hope to all thing holy, soon to be departing) faltering Prime Minister is introducing life sentences without any chance for parole. This story traces the story of a young man wrongfully convicted, sentenced to death, and his fight for over 40 years to clear his name. An amazing glance into corruption and the human spirit's ability to overcome incredible odds.

Here's my preview and interview with MG3 member Marc Morin. For 17 years, the three friends from Montreal have been touring the world, re-inventing the art of classical guitar, and the sounds you might expect from an ensemble in the process. Along the way, they have collaborated with artists such as The California Guitar Trio, and given the late Victor Borge a run for his money, combining humour with exceptional musical skills to delight audiences!

An Aberration For Sure,But A Good Aberration...

I'm not exactly sure why, but last week I had a sudden jump in page views, and it wasn't for any one specific post, oddly enough.

That said, it was like a 1000% leap - so whatever reason it might have chosen to happen, I'd sure like to see if I could duplicate that :-)

Well, I will continue to muddle around in the dark, and perchance I will recreate those right perfect blog post conditions again...

How did I forget to attach this preview of The Steven Truscott Story??

What the heck - must be my embarrassment of riches - I'm so busy with requests and attendances I completely forgot to post a link to:

My preview, and cast and creatives interview for Louis B. Hobson's "Steven, The Steven Truscott Story".

I think that link pretty much leads you to everything you need to know about this dark chapter in Canada's legal system, so I'll just leave it with that.

Enjoy! Better, yet - get your tickets! Most nights have already sold out due to high demand...

Shameless :-) Marketing Concept Gone Awry...

For a scribbler, I've had to do a lot of marketing and self promotion over the years. It's just the nature of the beast.

I had a headstart with those efforts back when I was in real estate, as I had to market my services, so as to stand out from the competition.

"Sell With The Saint" - great idea!

Swinging With The Saint - not such a good idea...

My latest REM column, which you can enjoy here.

Lots going on this weekend, still waiting for two articles to go live online, and two more reviews coming soon. Links to follow
