The Blogerati Files: Humble Howard Radio


This week in the Blogerati Files, Humble Howard Radio

Describe your blog in 10 words or less.
A conduit of peace between men and women and animals.

Why did you start your blog? Blogiversary?
I started it to keep my one or two semi-interested listeners up to date on my existence. Also to make stupid jokes and observations, and to sell my book The Slime That Men Do! My blog's birthday is September.

How long have you lived in Toronto?
17 years.

What's the funniest/strangest thing that has happened to you in Toronto?, Did you blog about it?
Once on the Humble and Fred show we had a contest and we convinced a man to lick a pig's ass and he didn't win! I didn't blog about it because that was before there were computers.

What are some of the changes in Toronto that you have seen in your lifetime?
There used to be no computers, no internet and no reason to live.

What era, day or event in Toronto's history would you like to re-live and why?
The day we thought leaving the Edge was a good idea!

Who's your favourite Torontonian?
Honest Ed. Pinball Clemmons and the lady who walks around downtown waving her right arm in the air and yelling at everybody.

Can we believe everything you post on your blog?
Yes. Especially the parts where I ask you to buy my book The Slime that Men Do!

Has blogging changed you or enhanced a personality trait?
Blogging has made me look inside myself and frankly it has been a frightening experience. Hold me.

Fav post from your blog?
No. All my posts are like children, I love them all. And then I want them to grow up and get the hell out of my house.

Ever met a stranger who already knew you through your blog? How was that?
I try and avoid strangers. I feel all people of the planet are related and that we are all brothers and sisters of the world. What was the question again?

Have you had your 15 minutes yet?
Oh yes, I'm at minute 19.

Lose any friends or muck something up because of a post?
Yes. I have both mucked and lost. But I will rise to muck and lose again.

Fav bloggers?
Mike Boon
Freddie P
Me

What's happening in Toronto right now that the rest of us should be watching?
I haven't got a freaking clue. I'd watch out for that weird looking guy on the subway with his hands down his pants... I don't think he's just "looking" for something. Seriously watch him.

You have the opportunity to gather with 5 of your regular readers - who are they, where do you meet and what do you talk about?
I haven't got 5 readers yet but if I did we'd meet at my house so it would be convenient for me... then we'd eat Chinese food 'cause that's my fav and we'd probably talk about this new book everyone's buzzing about called The Slime That Men Do. Have you heard about? You should go and pick it up now. Go on, I'll wait.

Have you ever had a question you wanted to ask random people throughout the world?
Yes, do you smell that?

If your blog were a food, what food would it be?
My blog would be a puppy treat. Not the soft kind either, but crunchy and full of goodness and then it would get all crumbly and track all over the damm house.

If you could gather all of the bloggers of the world together into one room and tell them one thing, what would it be?
Get out of the house and go and do something.
