Going through these photos alone is enough to put a big smile on my face. Thank you for inviting me to your beautiful wedding.

street interview

Why this? there’s a story behind it.
Around 3ish i left home and grabbed an apple w/ me. Half way through it i started feeling weird.. bowel-wise, but i decided to ignore it because i thought it might just be a false-alarm. By now you’ve probably figured out its NOT a false-alarm.
So everything was cool when i got to downtown. I walked around yaletown, looking for a good place to watch the game. Then I decided to grab some food first because i didnt have a proper lunch. So I went to McD and got myself 10 pcs nuggets. And yup i think that’s what started the avalanche.

I went looking for a washroom but all the stores were pretty anal (in a bad way) about it especially now. At one point i seriously considered the possibility of just doing it in the alley, because less desirable alternative was doing it in my pants… of course i didnt do it because i might have got arrested, and also because a homeless dude was already there, and i didnt think he would appreciate it very much.

I felt i was going to faint and had a temporary blackout. So as i passed through this furniture store, i had to go in and ask for the toilet. To my surprise the guy opened the door for me. That’s that, crisis averted. I am forever grateful, Functional Interiors.

Back to the game in yaletown. Everyone was watching the game from the small ass tv with terrible reflection.

When first period ended, I went lining up for Bell’s Ice Cube. The line
was short, only took me about 10 minutes.

This was the (medium sized) crowd watching the game.


When we scored the 2nd goal.

Expect to go somewhere to watch the game tomorrow, but still not sure where.

GO CANADA! What is important is not Canada winning the game, but USA LOSING the game!!!

You too can be a starving photo artist!

  1. Resist your natural impulse to delete blurry, unfocused, or, in your opinion, shitty photos. This is the utmost difficult. But remember, in a world where everyone takes clear, focused, decent photos, the only way to stand out is to do the contrary. Why else would anyone buy your photos?
  2. Print them out with pride, the bigger the better. While you might be tempted to print out as poster cards for those who can’t afford your large prints, don’t do it. That’s what people want you to do, and if you do, you are selling out. It’s a dangerous slippery slope.
  3. Let someone else figure out the meaning for you. Art is subjective anyway. You are letting your patrons take ownership of your work.
  4. Embrace randomness. If they can’t figure it out, it simply means its too deep for them. It’s like an elephant talking to Plato in a refrigerator, and we all know what that means.
  5. If the size is right, people will buy.

Just finished watching U2’s Live concert on YouTube. What an amazing experience! For geeks, it’s social media’s moonshot. Few years ago this would be unimaginable. Glad to have caught it today.

They are doing rebroadcasting now: U2’s YouTube Channel.

@ English Bay, in the crowd, a over the head, hand held shot!

Pretty much the same every year, but different. Part of Vancouverites’ common memory.

So I’m freestylin’ this time.

And no, I’m not signing up. 😛

The world’s first music video in an Excel Spreadsheet!

“Basically, it’s come about because we recognized that a lot of people have fairly restrictive internet and security policies at work,” Clandillon told Wired.com. “What we really liked was that we could actually subvert the corporate firewalls by including AC/DC’s music in an Excel spreadsheet, because that’s allowed through every corporate firewall there is.” [Wired via gizmodo]

One step closer to corporate sabotage by active disengagement.

Watched this a long time ago but still funny. They are hilarious. 😀

Notice it’s a report not review.

今年已經看了四部,分別是:


Parking (停車) [Taiwan]
很好看,我喜歡的黑色幽默。剛剛上網查才知道台灣要等到十一月才上映。
 


The Rest Is Silence [Romania]
在講早期電影人的故事,整體來說是個悲劇但又帶有喜劇的調調。
 


Cuba: The Value of Utopia [Cuba, Ecuador]
從古巴人的角度看古巴的革命歷史,應該是一部很棒的紀錄片,可是字幕好快我一直跟不上。
 


Let the Right One In [Sweden]
其實不是Horror/Drama,而是Drama/Horror。是兩個小朋友的故事,反正很好看就對了,也有黑色幽默。聽到Swedish覺得好親切,雖然一句也聽不懂,我去那邊真的是白混的。
 

應該會去看的兩部:


Blue Gold: Wolrd Water Wars [Canada/USA]
我只知道是關於水資源。
 


Apology of an Economic Hitman [Greece]
從書改編的電影,想看書,可是看電影比較輕鬆。
 

兩部都是星期五(Oct. 10)早上跟中午,嗯要來就來吧,老實說我已經放棄約人了。
 

錯過的兩部(其實是星期天懶得出門):


After School [Japan]


Secrecy [USA]

啊就沒看過,還有什麼好解釋的…
