Damn, this thing is huge!

Just try and make this go away. I dare you.

No, but seriously, you should consider subscribing. I send only the best stuff, and I won’t send your email to any spammers (pharmaceutical vendors, body part enhancers, etc), no matter how nicely they ask.

I blow it on live TV?


So I’m on this CBC show Test the Nation on January 20th. I’m really not sure what it’s about, but it’s with a ton of other bloggers including Amber Mac, Andy Nulman, and tons of others (there is, in fact, a whole blogger ‘team’). I imagine I’ll basically annihilate any chance of my team winning.

Anyway, it’s being filmed live, so I won’t get a chance to see it. If someone from Montreal could TiVo it or whatever, it would be awesome.

Update: Hugh McGuire would also like to inform you that he is also on the show. So there we go. So is Craig Silverman, for that matter, and we’ll probably get wasted while we’re there if he has anything to do with it. :)

    I can’t believe I didn’t get an invite. Rubbish.

    Also, Amber Mac used to stalk me on myspace. I confronted her about it, and then I agreed to doing it with her in the washroom to placate her. For sympathy sex, it wasn’t half bad.

    Anyway, I’ll definitely tune into this.

    […] McGuire, Julien Smith and Andy Nulman are three of the locals who got picked. Julien also wrote a post about the event, noting that I plan to enjoy some drinks in Toronto with my fellow bloggers. But […]

    Since you’re not sure what it’s about, julien, maybe I can help.
    We have to answer multiple choice question about trivia gleaned from the 21st century. It’s a 2-hour show, and there’ll be food and hopefully bathroom breaks.
    Hope that clears it up for you.
    Best of all, you’ve have a chance to meet Tod Maffin.
    And Amber is expected as well, possibly looking for a better experience than she had with Andrew.
