Summer Special 2013: The Social Media Summer Series #2

Lenny and Jenna Instax

This week’s guest for the Social Media Summer Series, it was an opportunity to bring in Jenna Tenn-Yuk. All I have to say that she’s multi-talented with the poetry and music that she showcases. The topics discussed were blogging, some social media and what’s great about Ottawa.
Another part that was delved on today’s show as Tenn-Yuk wrote on her blog in 2012 about coming out of the closet. The topic on LGBT was brought up and I was being careful in asking the right questions.
Briefly mentioned during the music break was on the late singer, Leslie Cheung as I thought she might know Chinese music (known as Cantopop).

Songs played this week were new music from Shad, Basia Bulat, The Balconies and The Naked And Famous. It’s exciting to hear new releases from bands and artists as we anticipate their new record.
The playlist can checked at this link. You can listen to the audio below.

As usual, I was joined by Katarina, host of The Cloud on CKCU-FM. All in all, what a great way to end July. I totally apologize if I didn’t introduce her name on the air.
Lastly, I’m enjoying taking photos from the Fujifilm Instax. As the photo posted above was taken on the Instax. I may not be a trendsetter but I’m just having fun shooting photos from digital and analog.

Programming note, The Wild 10 Countdown will be on a Summer break and will try to post the July 24th edition as soon as possible.
Have a great long weekend as we get into August.

Update: Here are links as Tenn-Yuk was in the news about LBGT.

Been a Sparse November – S04E07

At The Rainbow Bistro on November 20, 2008It has been almost several weeks since going to a concert in Ottawa. Aside from the Ottawa Food & Wine Show from 2 weeks ago, I haven’t gone to any fun and interesting concerts lately. On Thursday night, I went to The Rainbow Bistro to check out The Balconies, who were one of the opening or ending acts for Whale Tooth. Another band that perform was Under The Weather. Overall, I enjoyed Whale Tooth and The Balconies as both bands brought some dynamic energy to their performances. Finally, The Balconies get a good crowd after usually being the opener acts at other concerts.
Here’s a silly photo my brother took using someone’s Canon EOS 5D. Pointing or thumbing at one of the members of The Balconies.

Oh yea, I am happy to get Doctor Who: The Complete Fourth Series on DVD. I have not got a chance to look at the special features and listen to the audio commentaries for the episodes.
Another yearly tradition is getting toques at Roots.
I am still video gaming with Guitar Hero World Tour on the Nintendo Wii but I hear so much talk of people playing Gears of War 2 and this zombie game on Xbox 360, Left 4 Dead.
That’s all for now.
