Without fail, the week of the holiday show brings a guest or two into the house. Via the tree? Via the door opening from rehearsal guests? It doesn't matter. Traps are set. Donald's wall erected. Give up. #hoehoehoe
Final 5 hour rehearsal in the space. We're good to go. And yes, I'm protecting myself from their gross germs with my mask. It's an Asian birthright. Winnipeg see you Friday night at the Burt. Photo by Natanielle Felicitas. #jphoe #hoehoehoeholidayshow #winnipeg #friends #asianmask

We just rewatched a funny little indie movie called 'Preggoland' where a song from the Mannequin LP was used. It was a thrill to see the song title in the credits, and the scene was fantastic. If you get a chance, check it out...foul language galore. Thanks @silentjoeaudio ! #preggoland #thankyou
When the world is bringing you down...grab the Makita and start sawing. #SeriouslyAmerica? #historyrepeatsitself
Holiday show prep starts with writing a new festive song with my pal @rustymatyas !
@royalcanoe 's trailer was stolen last night in Montreal/Laval WITH ALL THEIR GEAR. Keep an eye out. This is awful. #montreal #laval
Spread sheets and mountain tops. The only day off is also a mega tease. So rock and roll.
