Hurrah for Acting! If you like acting and blood and empowered men and empowered women and sweet cars and random cat shots (can you spot it?) then you’ll probably also like my brand new music video! It’s for the song 7 or 8 Days and you can watch it HERE . This video was a labour of lust and could not have been made without many talented friends who donated their talents and skills (I shall put their names below). It’s been a mobile Fall for me- touring the new record all over Canada has been enchanting and never dull. Thank you to all of you who came to see a show or purchased a record. And there are still 2 more shows before Christmas to speak of; one in Vancouver and one in Squamish (details below). Then I’ll be retreating onto a different kind of stage—an Acting stage! Yes, I will be performing in my first play in aeons. It is a new work based on the songs and poems of one Leonard Cohen entitled Chelsea Hotel and it will have its premiere at the Firehall Arts Centre in downtown Vancouver for the month of February. And that’s me. I’m recovering from tour and learning how to write songs again. I’m reading the Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges (who’s always such fun) and listening to lots of L. Cohen and also the Cure (specifically, Disintegration). At night I walk an imaginary dog named Conscience and lose him, inevitably, in the trees. When will I learn? Have a wonderful jingly season, my friends. See you all some time in the New Year. ~ Glynn
