Nouvelles et rafraîchissement de site

Je viens de quitter mon hébergeur pour déménager chez Webfaction. J’en profite pour rafraîchir le look de mon blog.

Et tient tant qu’à y être voici des nouvelles. En vrac, dans le désordre.

Je suis maintenant coach de l’équipe de l’équipe des jaunes de la Petite ligue d’improvisation classique. Venez nous voir les dimanches soir à 19h30 au Parc des Princes (Parc entre St-Viateur et Fairmount.) Sites: www.laptiteligue.com, Facebook (plus pertinent.)

Ma fille ira à l’École secondaire St-Louis l’année prochaine, en théâtre!

À ajouter absolument dans vos bookmarks: The Brick Testament, une version de la bible illustrée en lego. Splendide, cru et délicieux.

Film vu récemment qui m’a fait TRIPPER FORT: Scott Pilgrim vs The World

The Order of the Stick, un des meilleurs webcomics tire à sa fin. Je vous conseille la lecture du début à la fin (requis: une affinité avec les jeux de rôles fantastiques)

Et pour finir: mon dernier coup de coeur sur onf.ca: http://onf.ca/film/paowpaowte_mort

Pimp ma botte

“Pimp ma botte? Quoi c’est qu’tu parles de là, jeune houmme?”

Cynical, weird, wrong but very beautiful

Quel optimisme!

Getting started with my Ukulele

On somewhat of a whim, I decided to buy myself a ukulele. The impulse was so strong that – afraid I wouldn’t get to the store in time – I asked a friend to go and buy it for me to make sure I got it as soon as possible. So from Italmelodie on Jean-Talon I got a Mahalo Concert electro-acoustic Ukulele.

Mea and my Mahalo Ukulele

The same night I got the beast, I started looking online to see what’s available and how to start. I was very surprised at the quantity of quality material on the web. Lots of basic lessons, tutorial videos, reviews, techniques, songs tutorial and songbooks. It’s amazing!

I have very little experience with stringed instruments: a few weeks of bass guitar last year and a few hours of ukulele from my 4th grade or so. Just enough to know what I’m tackling. I have a good base of music theory but there’s not much from my four years of tuba in high-school that can be transposed to the Ukulele. So I really needed help to get started.

I am still practicing the basics, I won’t be posting my own stuff yet… but I should start linking to and posting ukulele stuff once in a while. For now let’s start with my basic bookmarks (if you’re in the least interested in learning to play the uke, be sure to visit ukuleleunderground.com):

That’s it for now, I have to go back and work on my G chord family transitions.

I made a film!

Done with the website xtranormal.com, a very interesting toy. They even have Québécois voices and different style of characters and scenes.

Rice boy complete – Order of Tales now ongoing

Woot! It’s time (for me) to go over it all again from the start. If you haven’t read it do your eyes a favor let them enjoy Rice Boy.

Once your done with Rice Boy, switch over to Evan Dahm’s new project Order of Tales It’s updated often so it’s worth it to keep current. I love his naïve style and the themes of this one.
