what's better than roses on a piano.
Tulips on an organ.

It's a play on words.

Do you know what else is a play on words? The theatre production of "Roget's Thesaurus".

Over the years, I've taken very few pictures of Liberty Village. It's not for lack of trying. I first started working in the area about 10 years ago. I could go off on a long diatribe about how different it was then. How our clients cars would be broken into during the middle of the day. How I was slugged by a 'jonesin' homeless man on the side of the face during a relatively jovial stroll through the hood. How I've walked through countless discarded condoms on my way to work ,each one, oddly enough, coloured in a vast array of tropical hues. I've seen its resurrection. Condos, supermarkets, restaurants and, of course, a Starbucks. This picture was taken on the brink of development. Right before the Village became what it is today. It is my favourite snapshot of the neighbourhood. And as it continues to evolve and change, I'll keep this image in the back of my mind, always.

It's like the opening to Growing Pains. But without the Thicke. Or the whimsical theme tune. All judgements and horrible life-cliches aside, please just allow me to share this gloriously happy moment with you all. It's a rare moment in the K-wil repetoire of emoting. Savour it while it lasts for it is not unlike the mythical white unicorn with Bloddy mary riding on top. Blink and you'll miss it.

The VERVE!  
My 19 year old self is shitting her pants right now. 
So overjoyed the 'Croft decided not to blow his brains out last year. 
Also, am jazzed about Ticketmasters' fuck-up-edness.  Their loss, my gain.

 Friday nights are usually reserved for 'walking it out' at my house.

It's always surprising when loose ends get tied up.

3 years ago my Uncle Ron gave me an Emitt Rhodes record, thus propelling an intimate obsession that will, no doubt, last the rest of my life.
2 years ago, he passed away and his grave is neatly tucked away in a grassy field on Emit Road.

 Better late than never. We had over 250 kids for Halloween. Some kid kept knocking Ian in the head and calling him 'Mr. Coconut'. When we ran out of the good candy, we gave out temporary tattoos. I'm sad to report that they weren't as big of a hit as I initially thought. What's wrong with kids these days?

My biggest fear about climbing the corporate ladder is that people will look up my dress.

the thing about the mates of state is that it seems like they have the most ideal situation. it's almost as if they rub it in my face everytime they release an album. fucking talented jerks. i don't want to take liberties with the amount of talent Ian and i have, but we're both musically inclined and even if we weren't, there are many different loopholes one can jump through to make it to superindiedarling stardom. no one has successfully outed the lute yet. and that's one instrument that needs outing. one would say it's as gay as the day is long. but I digress here, what do I have to do to be able to play in a band with the love of my life and travel the world with messy haircuts and ripped jeans and thick black eyeliner and spend nights out after shows snorting cocaine off of strange asses while holding hands and then later, after returning to our motel room, having violent 'artistic fits' that are heated with creativity and smashed champagne bottles. And all of this translates into personal life experience and also, eventually, maps itself out on our faces so that by the tender age of 34, we've succeeded in looking like we're on the verge of 'keith richards'. goals for the future. and most gals just want to get married......

we're on the move again, he and I. it's time to expand into a larger place with bigger ceilings and a couple of floors. things are in boxes all over our floor and it's not half bad. I tell you, it's not half bad.

I'm not usually one to plug our shows on Vision but there is a really great documentary about the Jonestown "suicides" or "massacres" (I guess it all depends on who you talk to about it) premiering on March 13th at 8pm. It's a co-production we did with Cineflix and is really fantastic. Jim Jones' son speaks about what happened as well as some of the survivors. And you can hear fragments of the actual recording of the "last sermon" of Jim Jones. If you have a chance, check it out. I found the whole thing emotionally moving and extremely overwhelming. But that's just me.



Framed by recently released, U.S. Government information and eye witness accounts, this special follows Congressman Leo Ryan's fatal journey into "Jonestown", a community carved out of the jungles of Guyana by the followers of messianic/charismatic pastor, Jim Jones. Using extensive and fact backed dramatic re-enactments, as well as archival footage, and heart-rending interviews, we go beyond "official reality" and deep into the inner workings of this tragic cult and its apocalyptic end.
