the hour

If you were raised on Mr. Dressup, this post is for you. I am a sucker for nostalgia.

Yesterday we moseyed on over to the CBC building (Yes, I am able to mosey again! - Surgeon's prognosis: I will be completely normal better in one week).

We went to watch a taping of The Hour. The guests were Stephen King and Justin Trudeau. Yawn.

We were more excited about the CBC museum that featured a rather large tribute to Mr. Dressup:

Alex and the original tree-house set from the show:


Anyway, back to The Hour. Stephen King is kind of creepy.... and not creepy in that 'I write horror fiction for a living' kind of way... just in the weird old man kind of way. Justin Trudeau is a politician - enough said. They were both plugging new books. King desperately tried to convince the audience that his new work was not a rip-off of The Simpsons Movie and Trudeau was promoting a book about his dad. Aside from the uninspired interviews, the taping of the show was quite amusing to watch.

Naturally, we ran home to watch the episode again in order to find ourselves in the audience.

Success:


....and yes, I am entirely aware of how lame we are for doing this.
I guess this is what happens when you're unemployed and homeless.

  7. Now that must have been surreal. I love the old TV camera.

    The only TV set I ever visited was for a cheesy game show called HIgh Five in Portland. I was picked to go with my high school's Hi-Q team when one of their teammates fell ill. It was a bizarre experience. I just remember my sweaty palms, the big red buzzers, and the dorky sweatshirts and duffel bags they sent us home with. Must have been interesting to be in the audience.

    Glad you're feeling better Miss Mina :)

  9. Of course Justin Trudeau was promoting a book about his dad. What else is that clown going to write about? He owes his entire career to the fact that his dad died and he cried on national TV.

    Also, you should have heckled Stephen King.

    Is George Strounmbkdaloppoouuusslluooos as much of a douche in real life or does he just play one on TV?
