SYNOPSIS: Josh’s passion for the environment can get him into hot water. Or not, as we see in this episode, where his sexy, Brazilian swimsuit model date takes him home and wants to have a bath with him.
When I posted my Love Song For Elizabeth May on Monday night, I dreamed of her adding me to Facebook. Tuesday afternoon, my dream came true. But never did I dare to dream that she would love me back. And if that can happen, anything is possible. Like her winning a seat in Parliament! Looks like I’m going to be the First Lady of Canada, just like Michelle Obama! Or something like that. In any case, I better go pick out my organic hemp inauguration dress!
Last night I uploaded a song for Elizabeth May to YouTube. At the end of the song I asked her to add me to Facebook. And tada! She may be the leader of a national political party, but she’s still a woman. And women like it when you write songs about them.
There’s a federal election on in Canada, and Elizabeth May, the leader of the Green Party, was shut out of the televised leaders debate. I, however, will debate her any time and have written a song to express this to her. On the party’s website they talk about Strong Economy and Strong Communities, so that’s why I sing about those things. If you can’t see the video above, you can view the song by clicking here. And here are the lyrics so you can sing along:
You may have thought Nazism was the worst trend ever. Or maybe even the Macarena. But you’d be wrong. At least according to pop-culture/celebrity gossip site Crushable. Because in this past Saturday’s article, author Lilit Marcus writes that eco-comedy (or “eco-medy” as she calls it but which I refuse to call it because even though it’s catchy it reminds me of email) is the “Worst Trend Ever.” Now, she’s basing this solely on the recent Mother Nature Network article about eco-comedians. And you’ll notice that there’s already a nice comment under the Crushable article saying that my bald joke is actually quite funny. Oh, after that MNN article was published I got an email was published from a guy starting a stand-up comedy site who wants a clip of that bald joke. But whether something is funny or not is obviously in the funny bone of the beholder. The other question is whether the work is indeed “green washing,” as the article suggests. I can only speak for my own work, but I can say that I’m careful to insert accurate, important environmental information in my stand-up comedy and short films. Now, I know the article was written tongue-in-cheek, but I’d still like to defend what little honour I have. And so I’m happy to report that Crushable liked my Facebook fan page posting about the article and has contacted me with an invitation to convince them that they’re wrong about eco-comedy. I’m up for the challenge. Though to be honest, I’m actually happy to be known as the poster boy for the Worst Trend Ever. Takes some focus off my other role as poster boy for the Worst Date Ever.

The lucky winner, selected from nominations to www.greenheroes.tv (to see my nomination, click here) will be featured in an upcoming episode of GreenHeroes. Why am I telling you this? Because I just got an email saying I’m a category winner! Which apparently means that at the very least, I’ll be getting a T-shirt. Which is very exciting for me, because it means I can delay doing laundry for another day. Oh, and I’m also now in the running for the Grand Prize. To see the Green Living Show’s Main Stage schedule click here, and be at the Green Living Show on Sunday at 1:30 PM to congratulate me. Or to console me. Either way, I will let you touch my T-shirt.
Oh, and for the skeptics who need proof, here’s the email:
