Well, today my husband and I are leaving for New York City for our honeymoon. Even though we were married on April 30th, we decided to wait until the weather had completely broken.

Okay, I have been on this earth for close to 43 years. I have witnessed some historical moments on the news during my lifetime. The Watergate scandal. The wedding of Prince Charles & Diana. The explosion of the space shuttle. The Wall coming down in Berlin. The Rodney King beating. The O.J. verdict. The death of Princess Diana.  Both attacks on the World Trade Center. The election of an idiot twice. The election of the first Black President of the United States. The protest of

ILL NA NA performing at Pride 2010 I wasn’t sure if I was gonna make it through this past weekend, but I actually did it. When I took the booking for Blockorama on Pride Day, I wasn’t employed on Sundays. So, having to DJ in the afternoon then run and change into my alter-ego, Jade Elektra and then back to DJ Relentless to spin until 4:30 AM was quite the task. But I survive. I’m tired as hell and in need of a good 48 hour nap, but I actually did it and am proud of myself. But I must sa

A new blog by DJ Relentless - July 16th, 2010

[Publishing posts have been delayed due to travel, but will be caught up soon] I know this going to sound like "A Christmas Carol" in July, but this has been a strange week of dreams for me. You see, I have been visited by three ghosts of my past....my father, then my mother and last night my grandmother. I haven't spoken to my father since 1991 and my mother and grandmother have long passed away back in the 80's. All of them told me something that I long to hear from each of them. Approval..

Jakey G is Stalking Me!

I have heard from the friend of the daughter of a friend of mine (not directly – through the chain of contacts, of course!) that Jake Gyllenhaal is in Montréal and will be here for a year! This friend twice removed works at the local Scotiabank Cinema and apparently sighted him on Sunday evening. Wait a second, I think to myself, I was there on Sunday evening. He must be following me! Now I'm pretty sure that he was not seeing the same film as I, or would at least be as embarrassed to admi

Foiled Again!

  It's that day again. March 1st, or, more accurately, the first business day after the last day of February. The deadline for RRSP contributions. (For non-Canadians reading this, it is the last day to contribute to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan – a tax shelter to encourage retirement savings – before filing your taxes for 2009.) As someone who has mostly worked in underpaid community organization settings through my professional years, I really never had the excess resources t

Out of Practice

I think I'm two steps away from having to return my toaster. You know? The one I got when I came out.

I think I'm two steps away from having to return my toaster. You know? The one I got when I came out. Oh, you didn't get a snazzy hip toaster like this one when you came out? You'll have to file your complaint with customer service. Having always had the conventional view of what "Use it or lose it" might mean, I thought I was sheltered from the loss by my *ahem* private creative activities. As it turns out, the impending loss is not anatomical, and may be more retrospective than impending!

Early Summer

Phew! The temperatures are now returning to something more like normal. This is a big relief to me, because I am totally unprepared for summer.

Early Summer

Phew! The temperatures are now returning to something more like normal. This is a big relief to me, because I am totally unprepared for summer. More than a question of rotating the seasonal wardrobes from their cool storage to my closet and back, this has become a question of having to foresee new purchases when the temperatures change. This is not because of the new rules that are now being applied to competitive swimming, diminishing the role of the borg suit, even limiting the amount and ty

Sex Trade Volunteer

We have all done this. Not the work – mind you, we have all done that, too – I am talking about the naming of it. Who among us has not, either in seriousness or in jest, called a friend a tramp or an acquaintance a whore, all to denote the other's – uh – sexual 'productivity'? I have a rather creative friend, an active participant in the writerly arts, who went so far into his thesaurus as to trot out 'doxy' on more than one occasion. This sprang back to mind for me recently when I s
