Latest goings-on with new web content, plus quick baby update

I've been home recovering from a double hernia repair surgery, and getting a few creative things done while trying to minimize movement and lifting and all that jazz.

It's resulted in a few discoveries and launches:
  • Under The Stairs is a new YouTube series about some treasures found in a box under the stairs in my house. Most of them were packed away years ago when I moved with Amanda from Toronto to Halifax. Check out the first episode, featuring a large-sized Kenner Darth Vader action figure from 1978. Further episodes have been shot and are being edited now.
  • Toronto-wrestling.com is a new website about my journey as a wrestling fan from a 12-year-old to present time. I've also registered wrestling-photos.com, which redirects to the same site.Toronto Wrestling photos - Maple Leaf Gardens wrestling pictures
  • Among the things I found under the stairs was a packet of photographs of the band Ween at their famous concert at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto. That show was released as the first record from Chocodog Records, "Ween Live In Toronto." I've scanned the pics at 600dpi and included them with my Ween interview from the day before the concert.
  • Also in the box was the full set of pics from my 1997 visit to Lower Queen, a never-completed streetcar/subway tunnel under the Yonge-Queen intersection in Toronto. It's only been seen by a few people over the years, and my tour in '97 was the first major public documentation of the site. The web was still new at the time, and picture resolutions and file sizes were smaller. I've re-scanned the whole pack of pictures at 600dpi and moved the accompanying article from my old, stale web site to this one. You can now find it at Lower Queen: The TTC's Other Lost Station.
In personal news, the latest ultrasound reveals we're having a boy! Heading for a due date in the third week of April.

Thanks for coming by, and keep exploring this site and all my related web site. I appreciate it.
