The stuff I see out my window on Flickr.
Anyone know what kind of car this is?
Of course much more exciting stuff happening a block away at the Convention Centre where they’re currently filming the new RoboCop movie. I’m feeling a deep sense of geek shame that I hadn’t put two and two together with all the notices posted in our building from ‘Omnicorp’ until I overheard a PA tell someone what movie it is they’re filming on my way home last night. Apparently tonight will be rife with the sounds of simulated gunfire and explosions galore!

At long last, an opportunity has arisen to eliminate those sneaky, fat hobbitses from King Edward Drive.
It’s about time that we bulldozed more of these ‘unique’ and ‘charming’ houses in Vancouver. Allowing them to stand is very misleading, encouraging visitors to think that Vancouver has history and soul. With any luck, this proposal from April 1 can now go forward:
Of course the real shame here is knowing that the owner of this house’s twin on West Broadway has been lovingly restored to it’s original state and is unlikely to be bulldozed any time soon.
(Please note that I’m generally a sarcastic SOB and read this in the spirit it’s intended)
Always a pleasure to see everyone’s favourite cloven hoofed baritone saxophonist, Max Murphy out on the town.

I thought I could sneak in a visit to the Friday morning coffee meeting at Zen Café this morning before an important phone call but, of course I stayed a bit too long to ensure that I could bike home in time for the call.
Not wanting to miss it, I decided to take a stroll on the beach and was lucky enough to bump into the always wonderful and remarkably colour coordinated Tuulikki and have a nice chat with her while awaiting my call.

Stylish new cruisers for the VPD, along with their new mission statement: ‘To Protect & Serve Man’ were out in full force this weekend.
*Actually, prop cars. I think for the new JJ Abrams pilot ‘Human’, currently shooting in town.
