Puppeteer Marty Stelnick and Alter Ego: Rooster Kane

The show is so good I had to go and see it twice! You might remember Frank Meschkuleit from a while back and I'm happy to say I've now had the pleasure of photographing both Frank and Marty Stelnick, who have put together a wildly hilarious and ultra creative puppet show double bill, although you may want to consider leaving the kids at home....

Come for Rooster Kane's razor sharp wit, stay for Margaret Atwood's Fart-in-a-Jar and enjoy all the variety the Curio Emporium has to offer in between at the Supermarket next week in Toronto's Kensington Market.

...but be warned: Rooster Kane can be a smooth-talker....

Heidi Wall part II - behind the scenes

In case you missed it, you can find more Heidi goodness from part I here.

Heidi Wall is cooking up some good things with her "Refugee Bike Tour" and has since re-done her whole website to include a large section of it devoted to the project.

The day after Canada Day is perhaps inadvertently a very relevant time to post a short blurb about what she's trying to accomplish as it's a good reminder of how good we have it here.

Heidi is putting together her One Million Dollar Refugee Dream Fund by playing in homes, churches and other venues across Canada. The fun part is she plans on cycling to each venue on a recumbent bike (if you had to click the hyperlink, don't worry...I had to look it up too).

If you'd like to get involved, you can book a concert or simply donate to the cause directly by getting in touch with her here.
