The camera loves me

I’m going to be on tv again. This has been the year of the television appearances for yours truly. People are even telling me that I should change careers, lol. I hate tv though, and after being on it I still hate it. Doesn’t matter what you do, you always end up looking like an idiot. I was glad they left the snorting laugh after the technosexual description in the Citytv International CK in2u clip, that was hilarious. I’m not nervous or anything in front of the camera but it’s surreal. That being said, I probably wouldn’t turn down another interview, what the hell is the matter with me? Opening Soon and Citytv International were two strange, out of the blue, random things that happen on the fly short. The filming of both clips took place over a 24hr period.

I will be on Opening Soon by Design on HGTV. It all stems from this article I wrote for blogTO on Aiyoku Cardio Lounge. In that post I write

It’s Thursday night and I’m on my way to Liberty Village for the opening of a new boutique gym. These types of specialized gyms are popping up all over the city looking to bring in people who don’t particularly like the environment Goodlife or YMCA offers. As I walk into the basement of the Carpet Factory building, I’m asked to sign a wavier before entering. It seems there is a television crew filming the opening party. I’m a little surprised to find this out and sign it, believing that I’ll keep myself out of sight during my stay.

My strategy didn’t work and I got surprised while I was salivating over the new Precor treadmills and ellipticals. It was a really great party and everyone was super nice. I can’t wait to see the show because I heard stories about putting the place together. I was chatting with one of the contractors and we bonded over world war 2. It was actually quite touching.

Anyways, here is the airing schedule.

Monday, March 26, 9:30 PM EST

If anyone has the ability to record this show and send it to me please do, It would be grand. (is it illegal to ask, eep :O)

Yes, that picture is of me. This post is about me, so I needed a picture of me. I decided to use the funniest picture of me I had. This is also one of my favourites of me. It was taken by my friend Paul Baik. Where the hell are the rest of the photos Paul?
