My Neighbour Errol: Outdoors

Errol is not known to suffer in silence.

Reaction to me not seeing Totoro.

Reaction to me not seeing Totoro.

If there is something he dislikes doing, he will let you know, at length and in great detail, just how much he abhors an activity/food. Like mushrooms, which he describes as “Nature’s Odour Eaters”. Read the rest of this entry

Conversations with Stuff: Hair

Me: Hey there, hair.

Hair: Good morning! What are we doing today?!

Me: Well…

Hair: Straightening? Curling? Some fancy Game of Thrones hair style you always wanted to do?

Someday...

Someday…

Me: About that…now, I don’t want you to freak out… Read the rest of this entry

Sidekicks: The Beginning!

Update post! Filming for Sidekicks has begun! It is really weird to think that after a year and a half of writing and preparing that we’re actually recording it to screen.

In many ways, it’s a similar experience to NaNoMusical. We’re pretty much a rag tag operation who works on it during our precious free time on the weekends. We depend on borrowed equipment and kind volunteers to keep us going and our wallets relatively full. Errol never stays on script.

Or undistracted.

But in so many other ways, it’s vastly different from NaNoMusical. Read the rest of this entry

Conversations With Stuff: Jogs and Whipped Cream

Recently I’ve taken to posting fake/semi-true conversations with my body or inanimate objects on my Facebook wall. And I thought, why not blog them as well? So welcome to my new “Conversations with Stuff” series! And my first one for the blog occurred tonight :D.

Brain: Huzzah! We finished a jog! Don’t you feel good, body?!

Sidekicks- The Terror

My webseries Sidekicks is happening! I’ve decided to dedicate some blog posts chronicling the filming process. I have another, far more fun post after this one :D. But this one needed to get off my chest:

This weekend we finally begin filming for Sidekicks, a webseries that I began to work on a year and a half ago after NaNoMusical ended.

I am somewhat terrified at the prospect. Read the rest of this entry

My Neighbour Errol: Transit Adventures

Morning commutes with a full grown man child:

#1:

Errol and Manda board incredibly crowded subway.

Errol notices his elbow is in Manda’s face.

Errol goes out of his way to make sure that elbow continues to be in Manda’s face.

Manda attempts to move.

Errol moves his elbow further in the way.

Manda is thankful she didn’t have Errol as a brother growing up.

#2:

Errol calls Manda from bus.

Manda talks to Errol.

In the middle of the conversation there is a giant fart noise.

Errol asks Manda if she heard that.

Manda asks Errol if he held the phone to his butt….again….

Errol giggles.

Manda sighs.

**Posts over the next little while will be infrequent and small as Manda gears up for filming her new webseries, SIDEKICKS! Exciting times!
