The day after you win the election, that’s when.
Today’s news – about the FBI poking around in email inboxes for some dirt about Hillary – is why you never, ever let your war room take a nap. You never let up, because you never know when a rainy day is going to hit your campaign, courtesy of the FBI. Like today.
As I told Post City, a few days ago. Never let up.
Look, we have three big totems – three – in our house, and another big one in Daisy’s boardroom. We have more masks and carvings than I can count. Anybody who knows me will tell you I revere Northwest native art like it is from God (because it is). More broadly, we work with First Nations and indigenous people more than we work with anybody else. Our families include First Nations peoples.
So you will perhaps forgive me for saying that this Maclean’s story made me go meh.
Trudeau has a Raven-and-light tattoo on his shoulder. When I heard about that, I was pretty surprised, too. That creation story is really important – we have a huge print depicting the Raven releasing the sun from the giant’s box on our living room wall – and I was impressed, at the time, that (a) Trudeau apparently knew about it and (b) thought it was important enough to put it on his arm.
My next ink will be a Raven, too, The Hands of Creation. It’s by Beau Dick, and my B.C. buddy David Plewes gave me a limited print of it about thirty years ago, which still hangs in a prominent spot near our door. The Raven is the trickster, and I love all of the many stories about how he is part of us but also sometimes against us.
These Haida artists quoted in the Maclean’s story would have a legitimate beef, I think, were it not for stuff like this: Raven toys. Raven scarves. Raven candles. Raven rings (I’ve been wearing one of those for years). And so on.
I guess my point is this: you either sell your culture to people who don’t understand it and/or don’t deserve it – or you don’t. Share it or don’t. Let a well-intentioned guy like Trudeau put it on his arm, forever, or don’t.
You don’t get to be “bemused” by it when you like someone, and then call them a knife-wielding traitor when they have an opinion you don’t like.
Either you sell bits of your culture, or you don’t.
They sold it.
These guys got together last night and didn’t play this song they wrote for Da Brudders.
However, you may be able to see them play it if you go to this:
Oh, and Mad Max likes guns a lot. Surprise, surprise.
This just happened. This idiot did an illegal U-turn right in front of us and is now blocking the Westbound 401 near exit 730 at Cardinal, Ont. this is going to affect lots of people.
In the new Post City. I had to convert it from a PDF on the way to Cornwall, so let me know if it’s hard to read.
After the U.S. election, that is.
Let’s face it: you’ll be watching Hillary Clinton sweep to a massive victory on November 8, likely at home. You may even be watching me debate Doug Ford over on CITY-TV. (I encourage that.)
You’ll be super happy about the result, because you are a sane person, and because you are a regular on Canada’s Best-Loved Political Web Site™. The next day at work, you’ll talk to everyone about it, but you’ll all wish you could do more than just talk about it. You want to celebrate it! You want to sing and dance about it! The sausage-fingered, sphincter-mouthed, combed-over groper vulgarian has been beaten! Hallelujah! What to do?
Here’s what you: if you are anywhere within my time zone, at around 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 10, 2016 A.D., you and all your pals will jump in a car, or onto a bike, and come to Cherry Cola’s, at 200 Bathurst Street near hipster Queen West. THERE’S NO COVER. THERE’S NO DRESS CODE. THERE’S NO OBLIGATION TO BUY ANY MERCH, BUT YOU SHOULD AT LEAST BUY A COUPLE “DONALD TRUMP IS AN ASSHOLE” T-SHIRTS I’M GETTING MADE UP.
Come. Don’t hesitate, don’t deliberate. Come. We are going to have a party to celebrate sanity – a party to celebrate the fact that the world is not ending soon – and it is going to be a rip-roarin’, boot-stompin’, undies-droppin’ punk shindig the likes of which you have never seen. There’ll be tons of people there from CBC and the Globe, too, but don’t let that deter you.
Need more inspiration? Watch our hit, Donald Trump Is An Asshole – 5,000 viewers can’t be wrong!
