A belated report from my time in Richmond, Virginia, the former capitol of the Confederate States of America, and current capitol of hip young art students.
A city full of monuments, memorials, and establishing shots for TV's The West Wing.
Hey, you remember the Islay Beefcast, right? That podcast Murray and I produced several episodes of in 2011? No? Well, it's back, even though we're an ocean apart, thanks to the magic of Skype. We're going to be releasing this thing on an irregular basis. It's just for fun, some honest chit-chat. This week Murray … Continue reading The Islay Beefcast – Epsiode 05
This week has been fairly crazy and weird as it is, but I'm also excited to announce to my several readers that after a year of making do with wordpress.com, I have returned to self-hosting wordpress. The site is still where it was before, it's just slightly more swag, as the kids probably said five … Continue reading Now & the Near Future
An introduction as well as a preface? Boy howdy! Why Canada? Okay, so one of the questions you get when you say "hey, I'm going to Canada for a year," is "Why Canada?" Why Canada indeed? When I was a kid there was this cartoon I used to watch, called The Raccoons. The Raccoons was … Continue reading My Year in Canada: Introduction
I went places and saw things. Don't know what I was looking for. Didn't find it. Still looking. That's about it. Cheers.

And it's a trap too. It's easy to get stuck here, because it's so big, because it … Continue reading Best of 2012: Victoria, BC
Life, you know, it's bigger. It's bigger than you, and I don't know if you've noticed, but you are not me. Ahem... So, it's nearly over. The year 2012 that is, not the world (I hope). I thought I would run a little series of posts to take us through to new year, posts in … Continue reading Best of 2012: Introduction
And on the third day, I was awoken by my alarm clock, and decided to get my stuff together and do a quick last tour of Victoria, and write a couple postcards, before heading back to the mainland. First up, Yelp pointed me in the direction of a place called West Coast Waffles. Good reviews, … Continue reading Travel Log 2012: VICTORIA, Day 3
I got up fairly early on the second day, and decided to try out a local coffee shop for breakfast. So I headed to a place called Picnic, which had good reviews. The blueberry muffin was nice, but alas, the hot chocolate was mediocre. I'm sure the coffee is great, but I don't really care … Continue reading Travel Log 2012: VICTORIA, Day 2
