Silence of the Lambs Shit

Jesus Mary and Joseph!
My heart goes out to everyone who has to sit through the Picton trial, and to the poor souls whose deaths are at the centre of this disgusting event.

A year or so from now we're going to be seeing a whole lot of stories on TV about journalists and jurors suffering from PTS.

There isn't a :( sad enough...

BTW, anybody want to buy a wet BMW motorcycle? No mileage, only slightly rusty due to salt-water bath. Will ship from UK.

Evergreen Guacamole?

I was given a little jar of guacamole, Yucatan Guacamole to be precise. It's actually really good for a store bought guacamole, and it seems to never go brown. While I wouldn't ever go out and buy guacamole (I pride myself on my best-around-brentwood guac) I will recommend this stuff to those who do. Now only if avocados grew in the GVRD...

I'm sitting here about to dig in to Adobe Audition and the thought hit me, "How should I put off what I know I should be doing with what I'd rather be doing?"

That's basically the only reason I've been updating this thing at all recently.

This site is also suffering from lack-of-content because I've taken up running, and that along with my other hobbies have nearly replaced internetting as a time-waster. However, As I put off work, put off cooking dinner, and wait for the new Battlestar Galactica, I get in the occasional surf.

So, along the foodie lines of my rambling, everyone who - like me - lives to eat rather than eats to live should check out Mahanandi. I'm becoming ever more conscious of what goes into my recipes and into my body, and this site has been a real inspiration.

Go buy some local food, and make a tasty and healthy meal.


Oh, and I ran 5 miles in 44:42 today. Boo plant-hating light fixture, hooray me!

Snow and Wind

I just came back to Vancouver from a two week visit in the land of wind and snow, and what welcomes me back to the Pacific-Southwest?

Wind, and Snow. - Alright, so that one is a gallery of the collapsing dome, but you can see the southern-slush supposed to be snow.

New Job

I'm Back!
  • Back in Vancouver
  • Back at BCIT - although I'm now an employee.
  • Back into running - 5k this morning

Good times.

I'm working on a lesson covering microphones and sound-gathering techniques, and just about ready to start with some AVID workshops. Lots to do, not a whole lot of time to do it in. Pretty good gig though, I'm filling in for a great instructor/broadcaster who is off on maternity leave.

So check out the BCIT blogs. At the moment there isn't much fresh content, but the term has just started back up.
