Disney Sucks and So Does Helen Reddy

I'm taking voice lessons for the first time in ten years. It's going okay, but today I was asked to learn "Candle on the Water" from "Pete's Dragon".

Well, I have learned the song, but it's really dumb.

This reminds me of something that happened when I was about six. I did this show or film or something. I was supposed to go down the slide in the playground and the director told me to say "Wheeee!" on the way down. I told him that kids don't say things like that. It's dumb. Go to any playground, you will not hear a single kid going "Wheee!" I refused, and a battle ensued. I won. So if you are ever watching tv and see a kid in a light blue coat, with long, white-blonde hair, going silently down a slide, that's me. On the advice of my mom, I made sure my face was showing clearly so they couldn't dub anything in later. I think they used fruity music instead.

Speaking of fruity music, I'm doing the song a week from today and you can bet that will be the last time I sing it. I'm meeting with another vocal coach sometime this week, so then I'll have two. That's gonna be fun...I heard the other one is sort of rock n rolly.

Oh yeah, and I have to get a digital recording device too. o teh laffs just keep on comin!

My life goal is to acquire and live in a big, luxurious RV.

I never imagined anything like this. Germany...of course.

"A Winter's Day" - Steve Hanks


I have been asked a few times about this print.  It is called "A Winter's Day", by California artist Steve Hanks.  Click here to view his work.

Here is another one that I like very much.  This is "Blending into Shadows and Sheets"

Why Yes...As a Matter of Fact, it IS Lindsay Lohan Dressed as a Nun and Licking a Gun.


I just saw Nancy Grace throw an absolute fit over this picture. It was very lulzy..."What is that? Elizabeth, can you explain what that's doing up there...take it down!" She bitched so much that I just had to look up this extraordinary photograph and find out the story behind it.

If you remember Grindhouse: Planet Terror (Robert Rodriguez) and Death Proof (Quentin Tarantino), there was a sort of spoof trailer for a movie called "Machete". I remember seeing it and thinking, I wish Rodriguez would make that movie.

Well, wishes do come true sometimes. "Machete" is happening and starring Danny Trejo. The photo is by Tyler Shields. It is Lindsay Lohan as one of the film's characters.

That photo is provocative. Therein lies the appeal, I think.

Frankly, I found Nancy Grace's reaction to the photo much more disturbing than the photo itself.

New Additions to Site and Rethinking Things...

New Frequently Asked Questions page so bring on the questions but you'll have to ask me in person so I don't have to deal with rude e-mails. I have a feeling that some big changes need to be made...maybe you guys can help me out with that. ~Nicole Kelly Comox Valley Massage www.comoxvalleymassage.com

O NOES! MAYOR DROPPING F BOMBS!


Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson swears on mike by accident. Oh my GOD!!! End of the world!

Why? Because a bunch of people annoyed him, not wanting a housing committee in their area (translation: not wanting renters in their area). Whining elitists annoy me too, I'd have sworn too...just nowhere in the vicinity of a microphone, whether I thought it was off or not. I mean, he's trying to put an end to the homelessness in Vancouver, and for that you need rental housing, and something's gotta run that. Like a committee. Who complains about a housing committee? That's what he wanted to know. He wanted to know who "these fucking hacks" were and was told that they were all property owners, basically. Then everyone laughed about how the whiners weren't going to change anything. Someone said that basically what the speakers wanted was "democracy cubed".

Now that is intriguing! Much more interesting than the F-bombs, anyone can say that...but "democracy cubed"? WTF is that? I assume it means "democracy to the 3rd degree" (rather than the nth degree, which seems to have gone out of style and was constantly being confused with the 10th degree). So democracy cubed...I guess it's democracy in volume. Three-dimensional democracy. I want to know what democracy cubed would look like. I can see how it could be a somewhat unrealistic expectation. Addressing council does not mean that you have a vote. The Mayor reminded them of that. It was like "You're involved...but we're voting on this..." [vote] PASSED.

They all seemed highly amused by the "democracy cubed" remark and laughed about it as though it was an inside joke or something that only politicians would know about...kind of like doctors with that "There's a vas deferens" joke. So let's check that out...

Aha! As it turns out, the democracy cube actually exists. It's called "Fung's Democracy Cube". This explains everything:

Varieties of Participation in Complex Governance
Archon Fung
Associate Professor of Public Policy
John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

So the people running the city know about stuff like this, eh? Politics, governance, that sort of thing? That inspires confidence, but sheesh...they need to learn to be more careful around microphones.

Off Sunday


Taking the day off today, will be back tomorrow (Monday). Gonna head to the river for a bit and then check out more vendors.

Know what's interesting about the vendors? Many, many of them are selling at least partly on the basis of this "no cruelty" concept. I have here a hat that was not made by slaves...chocolate that was not made by exploited cacao bean picking children...cruelty-free stuff, slavery-free stuff everywhere. I had no idea that so many of the products we consume come from cruel, enslaving situations. I mean, I'm looking around the room right now...was my face cream tested on bunnies? Was it made from bunnies? Who picked the fruit that's in that basket? Were they migrant workers earning a dollar a day? How am I supposed to know? And if someone said that things were a certain way, how would I know otherwise? And why am I buying chocolate just because I was told that nobody was forced to pick the beans? I mean, if I wanted to have a problem with that kind of thing, I'd stop shopping at Wal-Mart because if that isn't an oppressive, exploitative scam outfit, nothing is.

You know, I'm just thinking...there was a time a long time ago when I really didn't have much of a choice as far as, erm....selling certain things went and life was nothing if not cruel. Maybe since things are different now, I could market my massages as "cruelty free" and/or "slavery free", since nobody's forcing me to do them LOL!

I'm tired of thinking about this "social consciousness vs. marketing ploy" issue. I'm taking my poor, aching feet to the river. They have definitely seen some cruel treatment lately. I'll be back tomorrow if you'd like to schedule a slavery-free massage.

Roberta Flack Was AWESOME!!!

I took this picture, even though it pissed her off.  Sheesh, Roberta, lighten up!

And Honey Larochelle blew everyone away with "No Woman No Cry".

Calypso Rose was pretty entertaining too...sheesh, these women are something else. Calypso Rose is 70. Roberta Flack is 73, and they were incredible. If I look and/or sound half that good at that age, I'll consider myself lucky.

Unlike Miz Roberta, Calypso Rose (from Tobago) poses for photos.  Got a few good ones of her and an autographed CD for my ex-husband, who is from Trinidad and who, I'm sure, ADORES Calypso Rose.

W00T! Roberta Flack!

I'm going to music fest today (Friday). Not for very long, mind you...just popping out to get a day pass and will return in the evening to see Roberta Flack. No way I'm missing Roberta Flack...I think she's one of the most talented people on this planet. I'm going to make a short day of it today, maybe work 10 - 5 and then knock off so I have time to get ready.

Edit: ended up getting a weekend pass...

Happy Happy Joy Joy

Happy happy joy!

I finally got curtains for The Room! I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but it took a long time to find them (needed right color, pattern, texture and light blockage) and they were expensive. Put them up today, and moved the air conditioner in too. Between the AC and the curtains, the room is dimmer than it was, and so cool, it's lovely, and just in time too 'cause it's hot hot hot and the AC just crapped out in my car. Guess I'll be home a lot for the rest of the summer. In fact, I'll be in The Room a lot, because now I don't have the AC in the rest of the condo anymore. Be prepared...I predict that certain things are going to show up in that room before long...like handheld video games...books...the occasional soda can...eventually, I suppose, a new TV and my PS3 LOL

I'm screening calls...seriously, it's just too hot to deal with any bullshit. There are drunks all over the place this week because of the long weekend and MusicFest, so anyone who calls is going to have to leave a message.

Sunscreen, everyone...high SPF! I'm seeing burns on some of my clients, and my burn relief gel can only do so much :( Be careful, k guys? ok!

Restaurant Recommendation


If you love good BBQ but don't want to deal with the hassle, you've got to check out Fat Bonos Ribs in Royston. Excellent smoked BBQ ribs and chicken, southern sides (including cornbread, yes!), coffee all the way from the Big Easy.

Click Here to Check Out the Menu

Note: Don't be alarmed by the pink colour of the meat...it's just from the smoking...it's fully cooked.

I've got to get some sleep. It's going to be a busy weekend, yesterday (Friday) was insane...there are redirects to the main site in both newspapers now. Make sure you leave a message if you get voicemail, don't keep calling over and over because you're not going to catch me between sessions.

Happy Canada Day!

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the day, but I'm not working! LOL. Will check out the parade, listen to local radio for a change, drive around and bitch about places that are closed...maybe grab a friend and head to Lewis Park. Depends on the weather too, I guess.

The HST thing sucks. It's not going to change my rates, though.
