My first AirBnB guest has arrived. A Brooklyn girl from NYC. A very young (emphasis on the word “young”), freelance film producer who has one of her works showing at the Female Eye Film Festival. Jessica has never been to Toronto before although this is the second time one of her films has been selected to show. With only two full days, unfortunately she won’t have an opportunity to really experience The Big Smoke. However, she was asking me if I knew any clubs with live music…..REALLY!!!

Today, we try to clear the desk of at least some of the latest adventures, and revisit a song I wrote 30 years ago that I have been desperate to find because I want to re-record it as part of a series of new recordings I’m going to start making as soon as I have the time (and the money). Anybody want to contribute?

Having too much fun at the opening party for the Female Eye Film Festival at the great Cherry Cola’s (more about that on Monday), I neglected to contact Jim Slotek to fill in for the still on assignment Geoff Pevere this week. Coming to our rescue is good friend, writer, and film maker, Emer Schlosser, who you can read all about at the end of this columns she has so graciously written for us at a moment’s notice. What? A woman who gets martial arts action flicks? Is it possible she also might like the Three Stooges? Here’s the talented (and adorable) Emer Schlosser….
