Apologies on combining Wednesday’s radio show and The Genie Awards all in one entry. I did not want to do back to back blog entries.
March 11 update – Another apology for posting the photos late because I only had the iPad with me and the WordPress app for iOS was not keen on the formatting.
Sort of live blogging over on the iPad but it is slightly failing on me. Using Safari on the iPad to get started. It is 3:35pm and hanging at the blogger zone at The 31 Genie Awards red carpet.

In closing, I had some nerves before going to the Genie Awards but I had great fun being at the Blogger Zone table and some of the celebrities were surprised and astounded with myself and two other people. It brought a unique element as the audience is catering to a tech crowd. The press room was pretty good with Wi-Fi but there were big time glitches with the audio from the awards ceremony, but it was eventually fixed up. The afterparty was a nice setting to see as celebs mingle around and trying out foods. It was a nice experience to attend a film award.
I forgot to put a link of the Genie Award winners from any news source. Feeling a bit clumsy in leaving it out.

It’s this time of year where I sporadically post entries during the Summer. I had the opportunity to go for more Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest dates compared to last year. I was able to do audio interviews with several artists. It will be provided here. Overall, I was excited to see some of the performing acts. Worse part was enduring the heat.
