kube: freya

freya spins for The People at kube.
i arrived a bit late at kube last night, but i got there to have enough time to fire off about 270 shots. it was not packed in sugar, which is preferable to the promoters, but not to me. there was a decent kroud though, and everybody appeared to be having a great time. people had that look on their face and attitude that folks get when they’re in on something. in this case, these are the early adaptors of clubland in victoria and they’ve found the latest and greatest.

if you’ve talked to me before about kube, you’ve probably heard me mention that the visuals are tops at kube. yes, they are.

crazy caption caper!

tammy says “i just told davin the zombie joke!!” gerry says “haha that one is great! now look, he’s telling julie!” davin says “… and then after devouring everyone, the zombie pretended to be normal and wore a black and white hawaiian shirt to a rave!!” julie says “…oh my god.. that’s not funny. i just saw someone in a black and white hawaiian shirt.”
that’s my caption for the photo, whats yours? (photo by jim.)


justin and emmy at the gonzales hill sc00ter massive. oh man, scootering just ruled today.

eckford perched on gonzales hill, representing what victoria does to the straight of juan de fuca.
we started downtown of course, then drove through beacon hill park and down to Clover Point. from there we went up gonzales hill and down beach drive to Gyro Park. we hung there for a few moments, stared at the oGoPoGo and then went up mt. tolmie and then into town again after beeping through oak bay. sweet. we dropped by jims for a few moments and then turned the scooters in after 2 hours of riding. man! 2 hours went fast. i am taking a jacket next time i go. a hawaiian shirt over a t-shirt just ain’t enough. i was frozen afterwards.


jim’s picture of me at julie’s last summer.. mmmmmmmm sushi
it better not rain tomorrow. i am going scootauring with emmy and just(in) and then i have plans to play tennis with emily (not emmy, tim). i just sent jim a link to a picture in my website museum. so far i have 2 sites in there:
dj ariz0na and really good music
i’m looking through old photos with jim now from .. last summer. i am really looking forward to everything this summer, from parties to just being out in the sun. i am especially looking foward to hitting up the Sooke Potholes. lots. take notice, those of you who want to come but don’t yet have anything to swim in, you have plenty of time if you start now. wooooooooooooooooooooo!

how the heck do i get out of this country?

the atlantic navigator’s crew spotted an error in the navigation system after discovering they were in the pacific ocean
whew, that was a close one.
i have been filling out my passport junk and getting everything together for submission to get the passport. i pretty much have it all together now except for a couple minor things, but one thing that totally threw me for a loop was the Declaration of Guarantor. to get a passport, you need one of the following to verify your existence:

  • dentist, medical doctor, or chiropractor
  • judge, magistrate, police officer (municiple, provincial, or RCMP)
  • lawyer (member of a provincial bar association)
  • mayor
  • minister of religion authorized under provincial law to perform marriages
  • notary public
  • optometrist
  • pharmacist
  • postmaster
  • principal of primary or secondary school
  • professional accountant (member of APA, CA, CGA, CMA or RPA)
  • professional engineer (P. Eng., Eng. in Quebec)
  • senior administrator in a community college (includes CEGEPs)
  • senior administrator or teacher in a university
  • veterinarian

it’s much easier to get out of craigderroch castle
basically the only job out of that list that fits the description of someone i know or talk to more than once every 2 years is my medical doctor. so, i phoned him up .. but he’s not canadian! lucky for me i have inferior eyesight, so my optometrist is going to be able to do it for me. sweetcore.

i moved it

no folks, i don’t think it gets any more flattering than this.
i moved the entire users directory on my robot from saturn to jupiter. booyah!
the directions i got from krishen pointed me in the right direction, but i got what i really needed from the forums on osxfaq.com in the form of the ditto command. [censored] zope!
i can go to sleep knowing that there’s another 11 gigs free on the drive that hosts this here site. krishen: check out davin.ws/~krishen/ .. some of the links work, some do not? anyway let me know that your stuff is working and i’ll trizzash the saturn dir dupe.
thanks to the 1 person out of the 314 visitors to this site yesterday that voted for this site on photoblogs.com. you roooooooooooooool!

oh four one two two oh oh three

they had firepoi goin’ on outside of sugar last night. pretty cool man!
krishen coined a new phrase today.
kru + kube = krube!
i slept for 12 hours last night. i guess i needed to. woah!
i have not been eating as well since i got back to victoria. weird, yeah. sounds strange. but it’s true. i also have not been getting as much physical activity. i thought it was gonnna be like “aiiiiight who do I want to play tennis with today” but everyone’s busy or not home or doing something else or doesn’t have a tennis racquet. we went to oak bay rec the other night to go for a swim. it was closed for renovations. dough. there is no where to go late night swimming here in victoria right now. i think the latest is like 11 pm at gordon head rec. weak sauce, weak sauce.
i think i miss work. i definitely miss all the people i was working with. i was out last night and i .. i don’t know. i think i was waiting for them to show up or something. i wasn’t, but you know what i mean. strange. if you guys and girls that i worked with are reading this, i miss you! ah, now would be a good time to post some pix from near the end of term and the party!
here we go:

so, i must get some excercise in today. maybe i’ll start cycling. you know, not on one of those stationary bikes. on one that moves. yeah, nobody will be able to find me, but that’s okay because everyone is busy. that’s not as self-pitiful as it sounds. it’s just something you can do if no one needs to get ahold of you. word. ooh and mountain climbing. i think i will climb mt. doug today and take pix of stuff. i need to eat proper first though.
