I’m tickled pink (as pink as my pretty nails!) to bring you the Good Report TV review of non-toxic nail polishes. Feel free to nail down your comments under the YouTube link, at the blog and on our Facebook.
Ok, I guess I should say “holiday” flyer. But, Hannukah just ended. And those aren’t Hannukah colours on the pretty table. So I’m gonna just go out on a limb and say it’s a Christmas flyer. And I think it’s pretty impressive for a Jew to have written your IKEA Christmas flyer. Talk about being talented as a writer! And it seems the masses agree, because my Facebook photo of me holding up the flyer (with the caption: “Pssst… Don’t tell anyone, but your IKEA Christmas flyer was written by a bald, neurotic Jew.”) has amassed more “Likes” than anything else I’ve ever posted. Save for maybe my Gramma’s eulogy. But I’m sure Gramma would be proud, regardless. She was Jewish too, after all.
I was invited onto Monday’s Humble & Fred Radio show to talk about my new gig hosting Good Report TV. Unfortunately, when I walked into the studio, Fred asked “Have you gotten any (censored) lately?” I started to tell him a story, and Humble said: “Stop right there.” Which I have learned means, “We want to hear this story on the air.” So, when it came to my part of the show, we talked for a couple of minutes about my new eco product review web show. And then the Humble steered the conversation to: “So… You were telling Fred about…?” And it all quickly devolved into a discussion that I can’t post on Facebook, for fear of horrifying my family. So, mom, don’t click on the following link. And nobody should click on the link if they don’t want to hear a graphic, adult-themed tale. And definitely don’t watch the YouTube promo about the show. But for the rest of you who are fine with a SEXUALLY GRAPHIC, ADULT-THEMED story, click here to hear a tale about, shall we say, a woman wanting more than I could give her. My main part starts around 1 hour and 19 minutes into the show.
Below is the episode’s YouTube teaser, which you should NOT watch if you don’t want to hear GRAPHIC SEXUAL LANGUAGE THAT WILL OFFEND SOME, IF NOT ALL, PEOPLE!
Here’s our Toxic Tips on Nail Polish, teaching you how to read the ingredients and nail down non-toxic options. Please share with your gal pals. Or your open-minded guy pals who, like me, want their cartooning fingers to be pretty in pink.
And remember to “Like” http://www.facebook.com/GoodReportTV to keep your finger on the latest videos. (Get it? Finger? That’s just a small sample of the hilarious comedy you’ll enjoy.)
On Monday, I joined Sarah Thomson on her CIUT 89.5 FM show #TOPoli, along with Andrea Houston and Travis Myers, to discuss the ongoing saga of #RobFord, the update on Toronto’s genderless baby Storm, the fate of the Sam The Record Man sign, the culture of homophobia in the suburbs, Sarah’s upcoming CNN interview on Piers Morgan Live and more. It was so much fun, I’d like to make our panel a regular show, as a refreshing alternative to Toronto’s current talk radio. Listen and let me know if you agree! (My part starts at 31:30 on this file.)
In me and Vanessa’s latest episode of Good Report TV, we explain that toxins in your shaving cream can cause irritation. But my drawings of what toxins to watch out for are far from irritating. Right, Vanessa? Um, right?
I’ve been talking about starting a comic strip for a long time. A few months ago I had the idea for what it would be. And my birthday yesterday provided the motivation to finally draw my first one. I told my work partner George my rough idea for the day’s episode, and his response inspired the final version. You see, the comic strip is about my life. If you follow me on social media, you’ll recognize the characters as the real people in my life. And if you know me in real life, at some point you’ll probably recognize yourself as a character in the comic. And… Um… I don’t have a funny ending to this paragraph. I’m saving up my brain power for the comic strip. So, without further adieu… I present to you… “A Life Worth Liking”.
After a couple of years of filming, we’re finally ready to launch Good Report TV, the web series that helps you pick products that are healthy, environmentally-friendly, and socially-responsible. Me and my co-host (celebrity and environmental journalist Vanessa Farquharson) get into all sorts of shenanigans as we teach you what toxins to look out for, test products to find our favs, and even show you how to make products yourself. As a special, if you go “Like” our Facebook page, you’ll be entered to win one of this week’s reviewed products. This week we’re looking at Lip Balms. Check out our videos so you’ll be ready for your New Year’s kiss. And watch them to find out if I can convince Vanessa to kiss me. (Hint: No.)
Here’s my second appearance as Rob Ford in a video by the twisted mind of Judith Klassen. And as Rob would say: “Oh, this video does exists? Well, I’m sorry, I did it #InADrunkenStupor and I can assure you that hopefully it won’t happen again.”
