Vancouver Taboo Sex Show, 2008


Last night, Rebecca and Trevor told me about the sex show this weekend taking place at the Vancouver Convention Center. Since I’ve never been to one, and haven’t had an opportunity to take my camera out in a few weeks, I decided to head down and check it out.

Also on the list was the new Star Trek movie, which is essentially a prequel for the original series. To be honest, I have a hard time thinking that one is really going to fly. I’ll be down there on opening night with the other geeks and my bag of popcorn, just to see the Enterprise sail through the skies one more time, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to suck.
