End Up Summer Update

August 28, 2014

Greetings readers! It’s been over a month and a half since my last update. Micro-blogging about my life just isn’t as exciting as it used to be. Not that my life isn’t as exciting, it just feel like I’m getting diminishing returns on the rewards of recapping everything I do. I’ve been considering retiring this blog soon, and start posting from www.159manning.com. I haven’t made up my mind yet, but it’s a reoccurring thought originating many months ago.

Good Enough Live Karaoke are playing at Parts & Labour tonight! Wini Lo wrote a nice article about us that went up on BlogTO this past Saturday.

I was on 2 hits of acid when we did the interview last month on a Friday afternoon in Trinity Bellwoods. It was a beautiful day, we’d just had a great meal at P&L and I was surrounded by friends, so I was feeling pretty great.

One of our karaoke regulars Rhett Morita who just happens to be a professional photographer, had taken some pictures of us at Clinton’s a few days before the article went up, so it was perfect timing!

I did a photo shoot with Sloan at 159 Manning last month (because I also happen to be a professional photographer); publicity photos for their new album Commonwealth which comes out Tuesday Sept 9th! Earlier this week, one of the photos was featured in USA Today!

If you didn’t already hear about it, check out this video Scott Wade shot of Sloan’s Chris Murphy singing Minor Threat – Seeing Red with Good Enough, which also happened to take place at 159 Manning.

Yesterday I got to captain a boat, as part of a short-film shoot Alison Honey of Park Bench Films is working on.



I want a boat of my own now! It definitely beats cruise ships.
