Dooey Do Do Opt

What’s the perfect amount of time to spend in front of the computer? Is there a perfect amount of time? I feel like I spent too much time in front of the computer. Which is why this will be short. And mostly of photos.

Also, I’ve been feeling weird lately about writing in general. I’m currently trying to figure out my voice. It’s an intense and strange process.

Anyhow, in so many words…

Perfect palette.

Perfect mystery companion.

Perfect dog.

The best part of the Cheaper Show VIP party.

This was a close second.

Galaxy-core?

The most creative shot I got from Mini Makerfaire.

Miranda is copying Dutchie’s expression, successfully.

This is what heaven looks like.

This is the carefree summer walk.

If I had to give this one a title, I’d call it “Dishwasher Hideaway”.

 

Trails ahoy!

Time to post photos!

Click here to read I’m a Good Story and click here to listen to the People’s Program Project.

I’ve done a bunch of work today and I should be doing some more but I just don’t have it in me.  So I’ll be posting to my blog, thank you very much.

It’s been really nice being back in Vancouver. I was so surprised by how many people were happy to see me. Nice to be missed. Now I’m trying to figure out how I can be based in two places, and where those two places will be. Vancouver is one, for sure. Not too sure where the other will be. Suggestions?

In terms of stuff I’m working on/have worked on…I wrote this for CP, which is about a fun/nerdy event happening this weekend. I’m working on a project with Chris Jacot, which we hope to air for the last ever episode of the People’s Program Project. What, you’re thinking. That’s still around? Well, technically it is but since it’s so infrequent I decided to try and put out one last podcast and call it a day (well, two years and 27 episodes.) I’ve lost the passion and drive for that particular podcast, but I still plan on putting out some other podcast-related stuff in the (hopefully) near future. I’ll keep y’all posted on when the last episode of P3 goes up, and I’ll be sure to excessively promote the other podcast I’ve slowly been working on.

If my writing is currently any indication, I’m very tired. So here are some photos.

Ayma had a party for Kate-Lynn. I spent a good chunk of the night having a heart to heart with Ayma, while she wore that ridiculous hat.

Speaking of ridiculous hats.

This was a good day.

Lisa Joyce having a hard time deciding if she’s having fun or not.

This was a good day too. We felt like we were in a cock fighting ring , or were five-years-old, while we looked up to order.

The other day I was thinking about someone I want to have the ol’ in and out with, and I looked up and saw this. Sign?!?!?!?!

This isn’t the first photo of Miranda and I taken in front of cool wallpaper.


And despite being a former model who doesn’t like haven’t his photo taken, here’s one of one of my all time favourite people, looking quite photogenic.

Heavy Medley

Click here to read I’m a Good Story and click here to listen to the People’s Program Project.

This week has been a bit hectic, since my getaway trip to Seattle made me behind by a day or so. But it was well worth it. I’m writing it up as a travel piece but I’ll share some photos in the meantime…

Mir was my partner in crime for half the time. We’re a pretty great team. She called it the honeymoon she never had.

We went to the Experience Music Project, but solely to check out the sci-fi museum. Turns out it’s closed, except for one random exhibit about Battlestarship Galactica, which I’ve never watched.

We still had so much fun. Particularly in the gift shop.

Then we booted it to Theo’s chocolate factory, where we got a tour that involved lots of samples. It smelt really good in there. Just like a chocolate factory should smell, I suppose.

Then we checked in to our hotel, Hotel 1000. Top notch stuff. I’ve recommended it to several people thus far, quite sincerely. Our room and its view was kind of like a dream come true. No complaints.

I’d never experienced the Moodz channel, but let me tell you…it’s good stuff.

Mir and I got all tarted up and hit the town. We were in bed by 12:30, I think.

The next day I did a lot of this, ’cause to me, this is perfection. Big bed, tv, computer and stunning view. Also, I had the best massage of my life, courtesy of Jo at Spaaah. Hot stone. I was on some level that was somewhere between sleep and half consciousness. I think it’s called bliss.

Mr. Todd Barry was also in town, doing a show at the Showbox.  I got to see him perform, lucky me.

The next day I did a bunch of solo wandering. Went to the Smith Tower, and got to explore the Chinese Room, which has a panoramic view of the city. It was so very special. There’s this chair in there that if you sit in it, and you’re single, and a lady, you’ll be married within a year. I’m not going to reveal if I did or not…

When I came out, it was pouring so I ducked into this guy’s little indie gallery. His medium was quilts. His muse appeared to be himself.

Then I killed some time at the public library. Microsoft has something to do with it and thus there is money behind it and thus it is a truly stunning building.

An entirely red hallway.

An entirely green staircase.

Good trip. Great trip, in fact. Sweet little getaway, for sure. My piece is due on Friday so I’ll be sure to post it when it’s done.

Oh. I’ve added an audio section to my portfolio page, so if you wanted to hear that DNTO piece from a few weeks ago, give it a click and have a listen. Scroll down to audio.

That’s about it. Keeping busy working on some exciting projects. More to come, eventually. Vague and annoying, I know. That’s how I do it (but only when I want to be vague and annoying.)

Up to 11ish

Click here to read I’m a Good Story and click here to listen to the People’s Program Project.

Happy new year, six days in. How’s everyone feeling? I’m feeling pretty sluggish to be honest, but it’s probably ’cause I’ve eaten a total of four piece of bread so far today.

Not much to report. The rest of my holidays were great.

Hung out with some girls and talked about the ethics of science.

And got drunk.


Dutchie had a play day with her Internet sensation boytoy, Grampa. (Scroll down to #21)

Had a casual cuddle party with Miranda and Jeets.

Spent New Years with Lisa Joyce, who’s totally crazier than me but likes to debate otherwise. (We’re about even.)

She’s certainly more photogenic than I’ll ever be.

We went to check out Laugh Gallery, which proved to be just the kind of New Years party I wanted to attend. Laid back, good vibes in a venue that reminded me of an elementary school assembly.

A highlight of the night was watching one of my favourite comedians, Phil Hanley, perform. Always a treat.

Lucky for you, you get to relive the magic.

What else? Oh, got to take care of Dutchie’s elegant yet breathing-challenged sugardaddy, Jackson.

And I came across some giant sweetgrass. That’s about it.

Holiday Thyme

Click here to read I’m a Good Story and click here to listen to the People’s Program Project.

This time of year, people with real jobs generally take time off, so that people without real jobs (me) feel all unsettled because they don’t know if they should still keep working or if they should feel like they’ve earned this time off too. No one’s going to be answering their calls anyhow. It’s weird like that. Whatever, I’ll still use it as an opportunity to chill out, regardless of the fact that I’ll still feel unsettled about doing so. Does any of that make sense?

It’s totally the season for being social. Mostly. Here are some pictures of stuff…

Dutchie is now a therapy dog. Though it’s taking a long time to get this thing started…CANNOT WAIT!

Leah the latkas maker. Without her, I would never have been able to properly celebrate Hannuka, or however you spell it.

We’re cute!

Sometimes (all the time) my dog does cute things like hide under the couch and peak out just to check and make sure I’m doing alright.

She’ll reach out her paw to me and be like, “It’s ok. Things are gonna be fine.”

I was invited to this super lovely dinner at the art gallery in an old courtroom upstairs. The chef of the meal was such a superstar. Really nice night.

Randy and I checked out Science World, or Telus World of Science rather, which we soon realized was a backdrop paradise…

That’s it matey.
