Tiny Newspaper with Big Heart – Why I Love Revelstoke

Tiny Newspaper with Big Heart – Why I Love Revelstoke


(upbeat music) – Sorry to disturb you. – Oh, no worries. – Wanted to deliver
some of these. – It’s 9:21 on your Wednesday
morning and back in the Cabin Chic Studios. Man-about-town, Peter Worden. – Hello. – I should’ve said and
uh, local purveyor. – Provider. – Local provider, yeah. – The quarterly funny
pages, in Revelsoke. (Both laugh) – So yeah, I took over the
newspaper, REVED QUARTERLY two years ago and decided
to do my own thing with it, maybe make it a little
funnier, a little edgier. The summer issue’s out,
it’s the nature issue, which I’m very proud of. It’s
all about animals and nature and then party animals
in the sense of humans. And I introduced my personal
favourite part of the newspaper, the miniature newspaper
inside the paper called, REV QUARTERLY QUARTERLY. – The uh, quarterly, quarterly. – The quarterly, quarterly. – Again, so if you’re
new to the publication, tell the listeners. – REV QUARTERLY, every issue
has a miniature newspaper inside which is one quarter
the size of it, and it’s called REV QUARTERLY QUARTERLY, and
you can take out the middle section of every
issue and fold it up and it becomes this
quarterly paper. (relaxing cello music) And it doubles as a postcard. – Thank you very much. – One complimentary
folding for you. – Awesome. – Alright. – Thanks dude. (Breathing heavily) – Hey. – Hi, hello. – Good news, Mad.
Hot off the presses. – Ooh, wow, thanks. – The newspaper has been
described as performance art in newspaper form because the
traditional newspaper is very proper, and formulaic,
and people sort of
have an unexpected language that the newspaper
will use, whereas REVED is very relaxed. It’s fun, it’s a lot
of games and time fillers. I’m trying to amuse people, and at the very least,
confuse them. (laughs) Quickly becoming my
favourite part of every REVED QUARTERLY QUARTERLY
is the horror-scopes. – Horror-scopes. – Yes. – You should read
your horror-scope. – I did. – What is it? – This summer, you are
found guilty by association after police catch you
hanging around with a crow and charge you with
attempted murder. (Peter laughs) – “More Dam Questions,”
that’s another favourite part of the summer issue. BC Hydro answers all my dam
questions, about the dam. Every issue has Classifieds
and Catsifieds ads, so I don’t discriminate
against the feline population of Revelstoke.
Cats can read newspapers too. I think REVED does provide that
alternative view of the news and the world, and it doesn’t
have to be all negative and if it is negative,
it can be told in still in an interesting way. (thoughtful music) It might be like the
middle of June and in my head I have
The Christmas Carol, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time
of the Year,” because I am excited to share
that news with them. Do you want a few issues
for the detachment? – What’s up, what is it? – Uh, some funny newspapers? – Sure. – For the most part, it
is that comical anecdote to the dreary, drab
news of the day and that’s why I love
handing it out so much. You don’t see newspaper carriers
with the traditional news, you know, joyfully
walking down the street handing out newspapers. Honestly, man, I do it for
the people who enjoy it and then I’m so happy that it
gets out there, so thank you. (upbeat jazzy music) – That’s it, REVED
and it’s proprietor, Peter Worden, keeping it weird. You’re listening to Stoked FM. (upbeat jazzy music)
