Prof. Gustave Morbeus SteamPunk Time Machine

I was biking around Old Ottawa East last week and came across this!
I saw a man riding this intricate mobile sculpture thinking maybe he's some kind of whacked-out old fashion knife sharpener.
Turns out he's Prof. Gustave Morbeus.
Gustave explained to me with great patience and detail how his time machine was built and the philosophy that goes with it. This Time Machine does not travel to the past or the future, it is set in the present because the past is gone, the future hasn't happened yet and well the present,  that's where the action is.

I ask Trevor if he was the one who made that great little portrait behind him on the pole and he turns to look at it and says no. Continues with the fact that he has absolutely no drawing or painting skills as opposed to his sister who can open a Cosmopolitan magazine and draw exactly what is in it. And a singer, she can sing like Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald just belt out those songs from the bottom of her heart. So what is she doing now with all that talent, asks I, "NOTHING" says Trevor, she has a job for 6 months and then messes it all up, all my family is in Montreal. And they all fucked me good when my dad died.

Francois, "J'veux pu m'droguer" - a little movie by HELENE LACELLE


I met Francois doing laundry at Lava Java on Henderson St. last Sunday morning. I gave him 2 loonies for his toonie and he gave me a .25 cents tip.  He told me his girlfriend was still at the hotel sleeping and that in 16 months she would have her divorce. He was hoping to have his album ready soon so that he can sell it for $10 and start making money.
He asked if there was any cheap apartments in Sandy Hill and I told him to go look in Vanier where the people are much nicer and apartments much cheaper. Then he went to the depaneur to buy a
chocolate milk. He dropped it and spilt half of it on the sidewalk and apologized to me for making a mess.
