Iggy Pop lived down the street from me.
Yup, apparently Iggy Pop lives in a really shitty neighbourhood in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In a really crappy and decrepit house. With living room furniture in his back yard.
Actually... that kind of is the image I have of how Iggy Pop WOULD be living.
Seriously, though, folks. When I first moved to the city, I lived in this AWFUL basement suite with my sister. Whilst walking to the grocery store one day, I walked by this house a block away from mine, and there was a dude mowing the lawn. Not JUST mowing the lawn, no... but ALSO kicking apples that had fallen off of the tree in the neighbours yard, onto his lawn, underneath the lawnmower, and watching them burst into rotting apple goo, as he went along. Also, he looked just like Iggy Pop, including the fact that he was not wearing a shirt.
So, shitbox house, destructive apple killing lawn mowing tendencies, no shirt, and he looks just like Iggy Pop.
There was no way he wasn't Iggy Pop.
I am only 3% sorry if you find this video offensive.
A few months later, the evil ex and I were walking by another house a few blocks away from mine, and it turns out that it was for sale... BY TOMMY LEE.
Ohmahgah, guys, Tommy Lee is a REALTOR now! AND!!!! I lived down the road from Iggy Pop.
I know what you're all thinking, WHY DID I EVER MOVE??
Mostly because my landlord was insane and tried to get us to move out by freezing us to death in the middle of a horrible Albertan winter. That's a story for another time.
