For those of you who don't 'do' MySpace
Hello.How's it going?
(It's 12:33AM PT. - The song in my head is Avenues and Alleyways by Rancid)
Thanks for all your notes about the new gig. I really appreciate them.Things have been crazy, and today (finally) I got an internet hookup at myplace in L.A. So I wanted to check in with you... (Forgive the brutal grammer, syntax and spelling, I type with two fingers and I'm sitting here watching The House Of Flying Daggers [The bamboo forest fight scene is on now...it's amazing]I don't want to bore you with the details but essentially my motorcycle trip across America was cut short to come down and do this show on ABC (The One). Initially I wasn't keen on the idea... I have done this thing a million times on MuchMusic and wasn't sure that I would be into it again. But, I figured that experience would be invaluable, not to mention a hell of a way to spend the summer... And it would be fun.. which it has been... big time... The crew down here are amazing... a really great group of producers and friends.
I know that there's a small, passionate group of people who are surprised to see me do this show, and that's cool... I get it...
That being said, I've gotten a kick out of the way some of the Canadian media has reacted to me taking out my nose ring... the funny part is, they're the same people who were freaking when I went to CBC with a nose ring in the first place. You'd think that Justin Timberlake exposed my breast on TV during a halftime show... I hope I'm never at a point where my jewellery defines me...
As for The One (The show)... the contestants can really sing the roof off the place, I've been blown away by some of the voices and musical ability.. I know that there were some major audio problems on TV, they seemed to have worked them out now. The house that they are living in (The Academy) is killer... And the experts (Andre Harrell, Kara Dioguardi & Mark Hudson) have been awesome to watch.... They are all so passionate about music that everyday we just shoot the shit about the industry, the songs, the artists and everything in between...Some of you have shot me some questions for the judges and contestants, I'll ask 'em for you so lemme know what you'd like.[Now the are having sex in the bamboo forest - killer movie]Thanks again for your notes, I'm sorry I havent responed sooner.... I can't wait to ride the bike back to Canada to launch season three of The Hour.Lemme know what's going on with you.
OH BTW... if you've seen The One and you're following the Aubrey/Nick shit... it's getting crazier...
Oh, One more thing.. Have you seen Clerks 2 yet? It's f'n awesome....
Thanks for your bulletin George!
