As a certain big-eyed ingenue once said, life moves pretty fast sometimes. We've barely got Museum of the Western World printed and it's already out in the world! So is Trev's Books! (I've also sent them my old classic What I Did on a Saturday Afternoon!) I was invited by Aaron Moran to contribute new … Continue reading Museum of the Western World & Trev’s Books with BIBLIOCACHE
In the hallowed halls of Main Street, in the aptly named Cottage Bistro, there shall be a gathering, and this gathering shall be called "The Launch! with PRISM, Event, poetry is dead, and Room Magazine." The date of this party shall be the seventeenth of April (a Thursday, methinks), in the year of 2014. And … Continue reading Hark! A Prophecy!
Today we fly back to Vancouver. The great experiment - one might say - has failed. I know that over the next week, the explanation will boil itself down to an easy deflection: one or two lines doing their best to contain both logic and pride. It took us several days and a good dose … Continue reading On the Embarrassing Act of Coming Home
A walk through the alley off Fraser Street, back in The Commune days, when Husband was just Boy Roommate and looked like a hippie.
I wanted to write about the London riots but I'll still trying to organize my thoughts. This is all I have to say right now. I feel like London is a wizened old man: the kind who sits on a park bench, smoking a withered cigarette, old tattoos fading into oblivion along the forearms, sleeves … Continue reading Panic on the Streets of London
If you're in Vancouver right now, you know how ass-bitingly cold it is at the moment. And I don't mean the normal Canadian cold, I mean "-8 and we start panicking and lining the walls of bedrooms with extra blankets because this is Vancouver and we are wusses" cold. But still myself and Dr. Roommate … Continue reading This March’s Latest Fashion Trends
I've been experiencing a severe amount of cognitive dissonance regarding the Olympics. As a Vancouverite, for the last seven years I've dealt with the 2010 Winter Olympics by simply ignoring the situation, but then last Friday, it arrived on my doorstep like a an e-Bay purchase you forgot you made. Since then, I've just let … Continue reading The Olympics are an extravagant wedding you think will end in divorce
Shannon and I have decided that we're sick of being fat bastards and have implemented a fitness regime into our already pretty groggy lives. Shannon's going to be a doctor one day, so I understand her desire for general health. Me, however, sometimes I feel like I'm a write-off, but sometimes I fantasize about being … Continue reading Q: What has two thumbs and is the leading candidate for first victim of the zombie apocalypse? A: This chick.
Originally Published at A'n'E Vibe With their latest album, Dear Science, having been hailed as the best album of 2008 by a plethora of music giants (Rolling Stone, Spin, and MTV among them), the Brooklyn-based TV on the Radio brought their genre-defying act to Vancouver on Monday night. The eclectic, high-energy performance proved perfectly set … Continue reading TV on the Radio in the Park
Originally published at A'n'E Vibe Sunday night’s Glasvegas show at the Commodore Ballroom is best likened to a first date with that person you’ve noticed several times on the bus and finally got the courage up to talk to. They were polite and sincere; just as grateful to be in your presence as you in … Continue reading Glasvegas at the Commodore Ballroom
Taryn had tickets last night for the Arts Club's Homechild, so she selected me to accompany her! All in all, the play was pretty good, with an amazing set. The perfomances, on the whole, were decent enough, slightly verging on sketch comedy personifications at times, with an overdrawn Scottish accent drifting in and out. Duncan … Continue reading Homechild at the Stanley
I did. I caved. After however many years of just saying no, I finally started watching Battlestar Galactica. (like with Lost, I also blame Jason for this twelve step-worthy practice.) I am currently still in the middle of the first episode/mini-series, even after two false starts. So far, decent enough. (I am told that it gets … Continue reading Oh dear, have I really started watching BSG?
