vanilla ice & maestro fresh wes

listen up ’cause the ice man has something to say..
tonight i witnessed vanilla ice and maestro fresh wes turn legends upside down. which .. would make it the sticky wicket. but it wasn’t. although some people that i know that work at the sticky wicket ended up in legends. so, maybe i meant to say they turned the strathcona hotel upside down. yeah. that’s it.
before continuing, be advised that there is some content in this post that may offend some viewers sensibilities.

hybrid interview #2

hybrid shirts do exist..
i didn’t have a blog last time i interviewed Hybrid, but if i did, that entry would have been very interesting. in any case, it looks like i have an interview with the boys from Hybrid on friday night before their show in Vancouver. I’ll be doing the first show of Resonance on 101.9 FM on friday afternoon at 3 pm – 4 pm PST and then going straight to the ferries to walk on to the 5 pm ferry. Then we’ll likely take a bus into town (PCL mayhaps) and go from there.
for those of you who know who Hybrid is, i’m putting together a list of questions for the interview now. if you have any questions you’d want to ask Hybrid yourself, put them in the comments section and i may ask them for you!

april vancouver trip

the canucks won the first game against the wild! wooohooo! this one was pretty exciting.. a goal with 1.2 seconds left in the 3rd period by the canucks for overtime and an eventual win not long into overtime. sweeeet. i was not there but i sure would have liked to have been.
man i sure should be a lot more tired from only getting 2 hours of sleep last night, and it being 2 a.m. now and all, but i am not. i’ve got some pix from the trip — not a lot, because we were only there for the day, but some ones from travelling. this isn’t a tour of bcferries, at all, nor is it at all comprehensive when it comes to information about bcferries. this is not meant as a guide for how bcferries was, or will be. it is what one could see today. well now that we’ve got that out of the way you can now take a look at all the stuff you’ve seen before if you’ve been on the bcferries. if not, it’s somewhat pleasant for the most part. confused now or what?

first of all .. this is what kind of ferry runs between victoria and vancouver. it is rather large, for a ferry. it has a 2100 person capacity and can hold around 470 vehicles.

i’m going for a drive

you know .. having an antenna is great and all, but..
last night jim and I went for a Trance Drive. you know, the kind where you bring your most massive choons and drive to get away from the city, away from everything familiar except the car, a friend, and your camera (of course!)

weirdness at 69 km away from victoria!
we ended up just beyond jordan river, where it was daaaaaaark and somewhat gloomy, as jordan river can be at night. at that time, i was hungry and i decided that port renfrew was not something i was stoked about, so we turned aboot and went back to victoria .. well, in the victoria direction, at least.

they tooooooooootally spelled blog wrong here..
we ended up on top of mt. matheson and saw some jagged looking haus. no pictures from there, as the view was blocked by trees and new development. dough.
