I am trying something new: no, not gonna eat the CelluClay with the rapini! This was bought during one of my lasts trips to Montreal; it is a mix of cellulose and clay. I tried mixing it with more or less water to see how it turns out once dry, which should take about 24 hours. I heard that it can be sanded and painted, can’t wait to play with it!
The inspiration behind the title of this post: the album Adventures in your own backyard (Patrick Watson). It has been playing a lot around here these past few weeks!
And to finish off this post: I was spending some “quality time” (read go to bed too late) on internet last night, trying to find out more information about Patrick Watson when I stumbled upon this video. It is set up in Abitibi, Destor and Rouyn-Noranda to be more precise. It does not depict the town on its best side but it is really touching, maybe because Rouyn is where I spent most of my childhood? The stories of mister Morasse* are delightful and so is the relationship between him and P. Watson. To all of you who saw that impromptu show near the train tracks: I am so jealous!
*Morasse poutine (fast food) is kind of an institution in Rouyn-Noranda.
