Ep. 505 Clip 4
Bad things happen to me.
Hot damn, I am so glad you asked, I’m going to answer this publicly because the public has a right to know and it’s a topic I have been holding court on lately. Still feel free to msg me more after, now I don’t know where you live app., but I’ve lived in a stiff Canadian city for the last 3 years where a kind of Conservative toning it down mentality has been perpetuated in style columns and such. So much so that people feel uncomfortable in their own skin. It’s causing a nasty sort of societal economic pressure/insecurity on folks. And one has to be ‘true to their own inner school’ and let it lead outer. “Ohhhh I can’t wear that!” To which I say “Well, yes, you can.” Words to perpetuate and make real: razzle dazzle, pizzazz, and razzamatazz.
As for daily: I do my best to brush my teeth, floss, shower, use an overpriced medicated shampoo (damn you, vanity and testosterone), put on a deodorant sufficiently musky, do the sniff test one two three on the clothing rack, and never rule out colour. 8 glasses of water minimum, no booze, pizza, coffee, and a healthy breakfast. Then do my damndest when self-sabotage doesn’t strike me blind (yes, the outside world affects me too, I really need to get a ‘No Fear’ tee and pronto) to bring about a natural sense of wonder to everyone. And feel young (older stylish gay friends are the best).
Does this make sense? Or do I just sound like a crazy person (we’re all crazy)?
What’s your regimen?
Robert Dayton Junior Presents: AN EVENING WITH THE CANADIAN ROMANTIC
This will be a one of a kind evening that combines large amounts of shared laughter with soft music and unsettling feelings of desire…!
Robert Dayton is a multidisciplinary entertainer, writer, and artist from British Columbia who resides for the moment in Toronto. His work has appeared in Hunter and Cook, Carousel, The Toronto Onion, Roctober, Cinema Sewer, Paper Rodeo, Bananafish, and numerous other places. He is known for being in such curious musical acts as Canned Hamm and July Fourth Toilet, as well as acting in the films Male Fantasy, Ivory Tower, and Leslie My Name Is Evil. He has performed at The Art Gallery of Ontario, The Vancouver Art Gallery, The Helen Pitt Gallery, The Knitting Factory, and more…
Robert’s most recent project is his series of videos and performances as the persona of The Canadian Romantic, a melodramatic figure of faded glamour who tries to bridge and explore the gap between Canada and romance with somewhat dubious results. Some key Canadian Romantic videos will be played. The Canadian Romantic himself will be performing live, taking topic suggestions from the crowd for his infamous impromptu candlelight Recitations. Expect glittery Bon Mots aplenty from a man of way too much experience. You will come alive with laughter feeling like you’ve woken up at an undisclosed time with make up smeared across your face.
After that will be a curated tour of the forgotten musical Recitation genre, which also includes the notion of famous Ac-tor as Singer: expect the plummy tones of Telly Savalas, Bruno Gerussi, Richard Harris, and a few glorious unknowns! This musical genre has been a key influence on The Canadian Romantic.
