One day in Dildo

Hitchhiking to Dildo

Our tour of Newfoundland continued with a visit of the lovely town Dildo. This is a beautiful little community on Trinity Bay, right at the Atlantic.

When we drove into Dildo I hoped for crazy Dildo merchandise and all. Soon we got the feeling, that the Dildonians want to downplay the name of their town. I still don’t now why, I think they should totally work it: Dildo cutlery, Dildo cocktails, Dildo shoes, Dildo hats. So many possibilties!

However, here is the Dildonian explanation of how Dildo got its name:

“D’Isle Duo” can be translated into Spanish, Portuguese and French, all roughly meaning ‘two islands’. With respect to our community, we believe these two islands to be Spread Eagle and Dildo Island, both visible from our community. Over time, with the dialects of the settlers, the flow has been lost and it evolved into Dildo.

Me loves them islands names, bys.

Up next: My visit to the Dildo Interpretation Centre.

My Nose Is Open Wide

I know, this is really old news.
BUT I just love the Morris Brown song & video by Outkast so much.

The video has it all: colored dogs, a marching band in the back of the car, roller coaster rides, flower faces, little people with tv heads. I want to live in this wonderland, NOW. And I am in love with the voice of Scar, the singer crooning the refrain. His debut album, Scar’d for life, should be out by the end of this year.

My heart is like a marching band
I’m a fan in the stands
Yes I am and I’m hollerin’ hey baby

My nose is open so wide (so wide, yeah)
Lookin’ at you such a pretty sight (so wide, yeah)

Still, I haven’t seen the movie Idlewild.

flower me happy

koi effect?

I love me them pink dogs

wau. wow.

On The Discovery Trail

I’m still in Newfoundland, getting the tour did by me Newfi friend Anthony (I’m trying to gets me Newfi accent on, bys).

We just had the most wonderful day. Driving around Trinity Bay made my heart jump for joy. And kept our imagination going. The road to Heart’s Desire leads through Heart’s Delight and most importantly, the town named Dildo.

I will tell you more about the trip and Dildo in the next couple of days, once I’m back in Toronto.

Bring me to Dildo, please
Dildo gets me going

Now, take me to Heart's Delight
Let me be your Heart’s Delight

My Heart's Desire
My eyes glittered with desire. This is where I want to be.

Just how I want it, bys

There is some weird sh** going on at zwarwald.

I’m in Newfoundland. Anthony took us to the wonderful island. Yesterday night, we went to The Zone, the gay disco in St. John’s. They played my favourite party song ever, We Like To Party by the Venga Boys: The Venga Boys are coming. De De De De De Deee De. And so on. We were out of control.
