Movies – 21

 Journal

I read a few articles last night on what 2008 holds in terms of new movies. Most of the list was fairly yawn-inducing for me (even though they author was clearly excited about them), but a few stood out. The movie 21, for example, about six MIT students who battled Vegas, seems fairly cool, even though I’m sure they’ve completed deviated from the real story. 21 trailerUploaded by mamouang 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 […]

Matt Good, Las Vegas Interview

 Journal

So, I invite everyone to head on over to Rebecca’s blog where she talks about a fairly well-done interview with Matthew Good down at the Las Vegas show I attended. It’s a good write up, and the interview has a few cool clips of Matt discussing the last year of his life, as well as a few excerpts from Champions of Nothing (off of Matt’s new album, Hospital Music) and Suburbia. I’m getting on a bus in a few minutes, so I gotta roll. Check in later.

Vegas Recap

 Journal

Since I have a few minutes to kill in the Las Vegas airport here, I thought I’d write a quick update on everything since leaving my pad back in Vancouver. Firstly, traveling on a long weekend sucks. The Vancouver airport was a complete zoo, mostly because of the forthcoming holiday, but also due to all the construction on the rapid line. I walked around the US departures area for a while looking for my flight, only to finally figure out that it was actually leaving from the International terminal instead of the US side. And for those of you who […]

So, I’m just doing my last little bit of packing, and then in a few hours I’m heading to the airport for my flight to Vegas. If anyone wants to see what is happening down there in real time, head over to Rebecca’s blog for live updates. I’m going to be adding to my Flickrset for the event, so check that out as well (I’ll add the images below here in real-time, assuming I can borrow an internet connection and haven’t drunken myself into a coma). I decided to leave my wide-angle lens at home, and just bring the 24-70 […]

Birthdays, Pool Parties, and Wineries

Update – Matthew Good release his first single, ‘Born Losers’, on iTunes the other day. It’s currently sitting at #11 on iTunes, and should hopefully break into the top ten sometime today. It’s been quite a while since I’ve had an upcoming weekend that I was extremely excited about. But this next weekend promises to be full of fun and adventure. On Friday afternoon I’ll be boarding a plane and heading down to Las Vegas to spend an evening hanging out with my friend Matt on his birthday. Matt’s currently working on his tan out in the Las Vegas suburbs, […]
