Blogelation – Guerilla News in Sault Ste. Marie, ON Canada

Blogelation!! Guerilla News!!

I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to be a part of this! This is so exactly what I’ve been trying to do for the last 2 years: “Relationship Marketing”. Now, I guess we can amend that to “Relationship Marketing through Guerilla Journalism” for the Blogelation.

When I was invited to come on board with this thing, I was, at first, a little too starstruck to see the enormity of the idea. I mean, holy ol’ shit, this is Craig West and Curt O’Neil!!

For all you non-Saultites, Craig West is a local celebrity musician, the founder of Startlefish, and also plays with the Chris Belsito Band.

To be working on a project like this with these guys (not to mention, really cool people that I know and respect making up part of the current line-up of guerilla bloggers) in such a News-Fly kind of way is both startling and tremendously exciting. And to top it all off…

I’m scared shitless. It came with a Ka-boom!

But, oh man, are we gonna have fun! I like to think of us all as the Un-Official Sault Ste. Marie Glee Club.

Please go check out the Blogelation site and see what it’s all about. Then go visit the current guerillas’ blogs. This is BIG news for Sault Ste. Marie, and I can only imagine the things that will come alive here in the next 1-5 years or so…

Thanks, Bastard Who Sent Me This Meme. Thanks A LOT.


Here we go folks… sigh…*

‘Tis the Season to be Meme-ing…

5 things in my fridge.

1. An odd smell…
2. Cheese.
3. Three containers of mostly full margarine.
4. “A macaroni & cheese casserole that turned into a science experiment several weeks ago.â€
Is that what that was…? I feel sick…
5. Lightbulb. (aside from the burnt out one that I can’t get unscrewed, that is.) It’s the replacement, left there in disgust when the old one wouldn’t come out. And because we all know that light bulbs stored in the fridge last longer. Or is that pantyhose…?

5 Items in my closet

1. I.
2. Don’t.
3. Have.
4. A.
5. Closet.

How much does that suck?!

5 items in my car (If I had a car to put five items in… bearing in mind that if I ever have a car, it will have to be big enough for a minibar…)

1. Built-in computer networked to my building with state-of-the-art ultraspeed satellite internet. (Duh.)
2. My chauffeur. Somebody’s gotta drive.
3. My bartender. Somebody’s gotta mix the drinks.
4. My kid. Because she’s cool and I like hangin’ out with her.
5. Either Ellen DeGeneres (who would be telling me how glad she was she gave me that camera after all), or Val Kilmer (who would be signing my contract – Come on, Val… you know you want to…). Screw it, it’s my car; they can both come as long as they don’t bicker.

5 items in my purse (I don’t carry a purse – so I’ll use the pockets of my cargoes)
1. Keys. In case they lock me out.
2. My hanky.
3. My cigarettes. I’m sorry, okay?
4. My digital camera.
5. My cell phone. ‘Cause we all know I’m gonna get lost.

And as amended: (or perhaps, more justifiably, in retribution:)

5 ways to leave your lover
1. In court.
2. In tears.
3. In pain.
4. In jail.
5. In traction.

I’m tagging these favourites (apologies all around):

1. Suzi, of I’ll Tell You What It Shwaz, which sucks for her because she’s right in the middle of a big pile of “busy†right now… Sorry, Suzi. Well, sort of sorry…
2. Bonanza Jellybean, back “fresh†from the horse show.
3. Deni, The Last Girl on Earth, just ‘cuz I’m dying to know what a professional musician from New York City has in her fridge…
4. Julie, of Julie Goes to Hollywood fame, just ‘cuz I’m dying to know what a professional screenwriter in Hollywood has in her fridge… Does she have a fridge, and does she even need one, she of the Hollywood Power Lunch/Dinner/Drinks Meeting? (Damn, but I’m jealous…)
5. Val Kilmer, of The Salton Sea, because if he’s gonna ride in my car, dammit, he’s darn well gonna pay for it somehow!
