    fabulous new NACC director Marie Coderre playing our tour manager and guide we got to see places that not many Canadians every get to visit Inuvik our most northerly destination was unseasonably warm at 5 degrees and made for super muddy boots like the southerns we are we brought our parkas and boots but haven t really needed them yet although apparently it s below zero in Whitehorse so they will finally get some use Saw the famous Igloo Church and the Inuvik Community Greenhouse a personal highlight of the trip the most Northerly greenhouse in Canada is the size of a hockey arena because it used to be a hockey arena attached to the former Residential school which was torn down in 1998 Talk about a creative and inspiring transformation We performed at the local high school where we got to hear the National Anthem sung in Inuvialuit and added bonus I saw one of the students from last year s Students on Ice trip and had a wonderful evening show at the Midnight Sun Complex Speaking of midnight sun I expected it might be quite dark already at this time of year but although the sun rose late

    The Emergency Monologues unbelievable but true stories of being a paramedic And I will be the musical diversion on the bill Guaranteed good times Morgan and I go way back and have collaborated on all kinds of things including that i directed the first version of his show for the Summerworks Festival back in 2008 I only put directing in quotes because really i feel my role was more aiding and abetting encouraging and cheerleading not so much careful blocking and character development you ll see what i mean if you ve seen the show or if you come to Hugh s Room on Sept 26 He pretty much does his own thing and that s what makes it the insanely funny show that it is For a while many years ago now Morgan and I also had a band with our friend Doug called Honkin It featured banjo concertina and harmonica now don t you want to hear that band C mon We were all trying to learn our instruments and thought we might as well make a band of it probably quite a bit stronger as a comedy act than a musical one one favorite memory was our version of Simon and Garfunkel s The Boxer on concertina harmonica and bugle Anyway Now i m just blathering on In mid October SPIN is heading up north WAY up north for a tour of the Northwest Territories and the Yukon We are seriously psyched And in the meantime I m continuing to develop the Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas project with The Independent Aunties Anna Chatterton and Karin Randoja and Elysha Poirer and I are editing The Age of Melting film and you ll be hearing more about all of it in the next month or so when
