Other places have gone completely dark. Check out Prince George, BC, which was totally blacked out today by this wildfire smoke. I understand it was also a...

16:16 Box office news: predictions of big things this weekend for Crazy Rich Asians »John Cairns Blog
On to box office news. Before I get into Crazy Rich Asians and Mile 22 and all that, though, I want to mention what happened last weekend with The Meg. The shark movie starring Jason Statham won the weekend with a haul of $45 million. That sounds about right. A while ago, I remember seeing...
15:14 Now, more than a few words on the media’s latest gang-up on Trump »John Cairns Blog
Today I want to say a few words about President Donald Trump and the media. As you know the relationship has not been good, with Trump calling them out for “fake news” and for being the “enemy of the people”. This week, about 300+ newspapers ran a coordinated series of editorials in opposition to Trump...

21:51 The queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, has died today. »John Cairns Blog
The news today is that Aretha Franklin has died, on the exact same date that Elvis Presley died 41 years before. Also, I understand Fox News is in trouble for mixing up Aretha Franklin with Patti LaBelle.
16:01 Red Adarra Demon. »The Monkey Rodeo
Originally this Demon was going to be neon pink, which would've looked pretty cool, but the body I got was very deceptively labelled and ultimately for "nails and hair" not regular body paint, it might've worked but it was so thin and streaky I just didn't feel like wasting the time, so red it was.





Knowing it was going to be another "wandering about town" kind of shoot I tried to find to new places. Charlottetown, PEI might look nice, but it's pretty limited for decent locations to shoot that aren't swarming with tourists this time of year, and that I haven't already used dozens of times. Overall I think we found a few decent spots and got some really good shots.





I'll be really brief with this story, but I always expect to hear a comment or two when I'm out with a Demon, but this shoot we had more than our fair share and some were pretty rude and outright creepy.

The rude one was some woman who asked the model if she lost a bet - there's nothing about that phrase that's complimentary no matter how you spin it. Even when I told her that was incredibly rude, she almost seemed to stupid to acknowledge it and just sat there (mind you she wasn't driving the car, someone else was) until I decided to elaborate on just how thoughtlessly rude her "funny" comment was eventually she drove off. Idiot.

This was pretty much as soon as we started and we ended it with some creepy old guy whistling at the model - on so many levels that's creepy, rude, and inappropriate in this day and age. So that rounded out the day really nicely.

Luckily I don't like people very much and expect nothing but obvious or tedious comments anyway, normally my expectations are spot on, but I wasn't really expecting this level of twatwaffle-ry.






Otherwise the shoot went great, we got some really good stuff, it was a little hot but it was a decent kind of day for an outdoor photo shoot.




















11:07 What I Now Know About Americans »Young, Wild and Tidy (Kailea Switzer)
Even though Dawn was my favorite member of the babysitter’s club, “living in California” wasn’t something I ever dreamt about. Maybe it seemed outside the realm of possibilities, even for dreams. Plus, “life in the U.S.” just didn’t appeal to me. I had been to various parts of America on trips with my family, and … Continue reading What I Now Know About Americans

Well, here we are at midweek and I can tell you, the smoky air is back. All that wildfire smoke from BC (now under a state of emergency) and Alberta has infiltrated Saskatchewan and has smoked us right out. To be quite honest with you, this is getting depressing. I am fed up with this...

But new to me. In the past week I required customer support for two tech related products. To my surprise they did not offer email nor telephone support.
