The literary connection may be tenuous but Joe Keithley, front man for the legendary Vancouver punk band DOA did write a memoir, titled I,Shithead, published by Arsenal Pulp Press, so he is a published author. DOA celebrated 30 years of music with an anniversary show at the Commodore Ballroom Friday night. Check out Joe’s record company site Sudden Death Records. Here are a few photos from the event.
Canada Post has just released a pair of stamps celebrating the 100th anniversary of everyone’s favourite literary redhead. No we’re not talking about Pippi Longstocking. It is of course Lucy Maud Montgomery’s creation, Anne of Green Gables.The stamps, based on paintings by Ben Stahl (Anne) and Christopher Kovacs (Green Gables house), are available individually or in a variety of sets. The souvenir sheet with both stamps (shown here, resting against a set of L.M. Montgomery Anne books) is only $1.04 Canadian.
