The One With a Dog on the Stage

BY JAMES TURNER
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 14, 2017

That silence you hear at the beginning of this presentation is a vital component to its existance. You see, there was an actual, living breathing, fluffy as can be, dog on the stage. That silence was the entire audience collectively mooning over the adorable fur baby that stood as a living prop for James Turner's presentation.  It is PKN Winnipeg's sole duty in life now to make sure there is at least one dog per event night from this moment forward.  Proceed.

This Guy is NOT Creative


"I started to get a feeling that creativity didn't have to happen as that brush stroke that Bob Ross did, but it became something more than that.
