Vancouver is snowed under and it’s American Thanksgiving so somehow it’s made this work day suuuuuuuuper slow. I try not to panic and simply enjoy the time.
Here are some photos as of late.
It was Katie’s birthday. She wanted everyone to donate blood (didn’t really happen) and then attend a red-themed party at her house. Since Katie lives a sober life, she makes things fun in other ways. For example:
She bought these off the Internets.
Spending my days in meetings lately. Things are starting to percolate, but it’s certainly a slow boil. Like I’ve said, I’m working on not getting excited about anything until I know it’s real. Just trying to coast, stay focused, do my thing etc. How’s that for vague?
Off to eat Thai with Jesse of Salazar at a place called Bob Likes Thai Food. As Alicia Tobin just said, I hope Bob likes good Thai food. Anyhow, one of Jesse’s videos recently made it onto Stereogum’s videos of the week list and Pitchfork’s front page. That’s me namedropping.

Actually, Sha-lin in general. I see the people who work there more often than I see anyone else in my life. The best comfort food in my neighbourhood – and I’ve been needing a lot of comfort lately. (Margeo and I aren’t actually that puffy-looking and red in real life.)
This documentary spoke to me in a timely fashion. Richard and Linda Thompson are two of my favourite musicians, probably in my top three, so to hear them talk about their creative process was incredibly inspiring and comforting. Try to watch this part of the documentary if you can, and better yet, purchase their albums “Shoot out the Lights” and “I want to see the bright lights tonight.” Both albums changed my life for the better. Dark, dark shit.

That enormous cat right there is one of Dutchie’s tightest buds.
Sick at home, kind of restless, figured I’d post some photos of the last few days.
I went on a delightful 24-hour trip to Victoria…
Oh, I wrote this for Canadian Press. It’s about Skateistan. Here’s a pic I took of Erika while I was on Skype with her.

For one, the Waldorf hotel is really spectacular. I wish I took more pictures of the inside because it’s really special. So exciting Vancouver has such a great, versatile new venue. It’s about time.
Okay, here’s some pictures of our costume…
Katie had made an extra emblem so that we could recruit another member. Luckily, Randy was dressed up as a priest so he fit right in. He instantly became our leader. Katie was satisfied that one person knew what we were.
I’m bummed we didn’t take photos with our robes on. They were incredible. Anyhow. Other photos…
The legendary Paul Wong and his super hot young boyfriend (I’m assuming.) He had his videos playing in most of the hotel rooms. I really love his work.
Mr. Milardo went as Epic Beard Man, from the meme. Spot on.
Cult leader and Clinton, whose costume I’m still not clear on. Katie thought it was the lead singer of Suicide.
Anyhow. Fun times. And I think I’ve gotten over my extreme hatred for Halloween. Phew.
Today I went to Steveson with some silly girls…
That’s it. Happy Halloweener!
