Dare You Not To Toe Tap

How is it I've never seen this video before? I love it! One shot videos are the best. Another great local band, Redgy Blackout.

Canada Day 2012

Another great Canada Day celebration from City of Surrey in Cloverdale. This year was highlighted by an appearance by Canada's golden boy, Sam Roberts. Fun was had, food was consumed and flags were waved. The only damper was the Glastonbury-like mud pits, but it did not stop people from dancing and enjoying themselves. Can't wait to see what Surrey has in store next year. Until then, Fusion Fest is just around the corner.

I Sprang Forward, Now I Fall back

Halloween Ball at Science World 2011

So I completely forgot about blogging altogether the last month or so. I have been so wrapped up in worked and sitting at a computer after sitting at one for 8 hours isn't so appealing sometimes. It will just have to be me making more of an effort and getting back into a bit of a routine for myself. Maybe choose one day a week to blog and work my way up. I like my job, it took awhile to get a grasp on some things but now that I know what it is I'm doing and have more confidence in it, it isn't so bad. The company is pretty cool and the people are great, it's the commute and waking up super insane early that suck. I am really looking forward to that extra hour of sleep!

As you can see from the photo, Halloween was spent at the costume ball and it was a lot of fun. I doubt I'd do that venue again at that price ($55) but if you're under 25 and single- go forth! I am really digging this new Gomez tune, Options. Been awhile since I've heard from them.

The Return Of The Lazy Sunday

Chilliwack Lake, BC. A new paradise discovered.

Well it was inevitable. Summer is over and I am now fully employed in a 9-5. So far the job seems ok and the people I work with are really laid back and nice guys. I was really overwhelmed the first few days but I imagine that has more to do with the fact I haven't been in a traditional work environment in almost two years.

It sure doesn't take long to appreciate your weekends and vacations! Although I am sad that I won't be able to support myself on charm and sheer luck, I am happy to be free from the stress of financial doom. It was getting bad, and I knew I had to make this happen asap. I'm not looking at is as failure or selling out but more like a means to acquire new shoes, better equipment and a bit of spending money to go see more shows downtown. And now that I am working in Richmond I can easily do that, even on weekdays.

So if you have a new song or a show playing in Vancouver,hit me up and I'll do my best to come down and attempt to take some unique shots of you and your band. Or check out your indie movie..whatever. I've felt kinda out of the loop culturally for the last few months while I succumbed to summer by the beach and I feel it's time to get back in and check shit out. A lot of changes coming up for me, I can feel it like crisp air in the mornings as I walk out to my car at 7am. I have no idea what life has in store for me but I'm alive with anticipation and that's all I can ask for right now.
