I already did that.
Actually the artist of Northlanders Davide Gianfelice requested me as a friend when I tagged in various photos from NYC.

Cameron, are you paying for all expenses for me to travel to Calgary? If yes, I'll be your walking database and more.

Anyway, some updates :

- My company is starting to feel some consequences of the global crisis. The people who are on temp contract will not be renewed. The sales dept is putting a lot of pressure on us as they are renegotiating many contracts at the moment and our customers all want to downsize the prices. As a consequence, eveybody in the management is fucking tense and they put a lot of pressure on us poor team leaders. I'm very nervous when I'm there and two days ago, I sharply told off my boss (N+2). Oops.

- I've been in a very noir/crime mode lately, influenced by my comics reading (Aaron, Azz) but also by the fact that a noir book convention took place in Lyon. Jason Starr was there so I walked up to him and asked him if he was the same Jason Starr who is going to write a GN for Vertigo. And it really was him. He is very good friends with Ed Brubaker apparently and he is also going to write a Punisher one-shot with Roland Boschi handling the art. So of course, I bought 2 of his books so he could sign them to me. :D

- While we are at books, I have a lot stuff to catch up on. TPBs and novels. And still 4 or 5 seasons of different TV shows that I need to see. I have holidays at the end of May so I hope to put them to good use.

- Now that Spring is upon us, I've decided to up a little my dose of sport (I have a chocolate belly fastly enlarging and I need to beat it). So on top of my weekly football game, I'm gonna go for some joggings 2 or 3 times a week. Malorie wants me to do crunches but I don't think so.

There is probably some more stuff I wanted to tell you but that's all I can think for now.

Arn, have you read Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler? 2 of the original, and best noir writers ever?

I won't mind listening to Beautiful People but that's about as far as I care when it comes to Marylin Manson.

Thank you all guys.

Malorie got me a kickass dartboard. Now I only have to find the right wall to set it on and then I can play darts all day long.
