    Job in Vancouver Movie Industry

    Okay… only tangentially… received an email from cineworks who has a couple openings; one part time $18/hr gig and one volunteer. Don’t comment here, I am not affiliated with Cineworks, I just figured I might know someone who’d be interested in one of these two gigs. Keep in mind that this post was made in […]

    Advance Copies

    There’s just something about getting a CD before everyone else; hearing a CD months before the pointi n time that the band’s label decided to open the gates to the public. That is really 70% of the attraction that I have had to music journalism; the other 30% split between free concerts, photo passes and […]

    I’ve just come up with a number of arrangements of small 6x6cm photos taken from contact sheets I had printed a couple years ago. I’m really happy with the arrangements and I think they look great as sets; there’s more than one set that I’d consider getting another set of contact prints made so that […]

    Kolachy dreams, Miss Moneypenny.

    by  • 10/26/2007 • Halifax, Vancouver • 0 Comments

    Odd collection of dreams… Now I want to find how I can get some frozen Kolachies (Kolachy?) and if I’m going to be shipping frozen food anyway, a couple dozen deluxe steamed buns from New Town Bakery. Kolachy I ran into Kolachy Guy on Spring Garden Road in Halifax. I was walking along listening to […]

    Plenty of time to decide…

    by  • 10/23/2007 • Halifax, travel, Vancouver • 1 Comment

    The plan involves driving back to Vancouver in about 18 months, and the working theory is buy a used band van and drive. That’s 18 months for Tania to learn to drive, 18 months for me to abuse the company’s training subsidy, and 18 months to decide which direction to go… Primarily that amount to […]

    Further proof that video budgets don’t need to be huge to be entertaining or broadcast worthy, Nardwuar the Human Serviette and his band, The Evaporators are Shakin’ With The Shaggy Shaker. Video directed by Joey McGarry from the new CD/LP “Gassy Jack and Other Tales” available Nov 6 2007 from Mint Records. I’m surely biased, […]

    There’s something about the latest tune from Nardwuar’s band The Evaporators, Float Plane, that makes me think of the Dead Milkmen. Okay, I might just be saying that bbecause I’ve been listening to Beelzebubba a lot in the last couple days, but see what you think with the video below… If you don’t see the […]
