Vancouver 2010 / Tickets Giveaway

Ok, I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do.

As you are all aware, the 2010 Olympics begin here in Vancouver this week, and if you live here, you know how difficult it has been to get tickets. Well my friends, I have tickets. And not just any tickets. I have a pair of tickets to the 2010 Olympics Men’s Hockey Semi-Finals courtesy of BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village (opens February 10th).

Hockey is the only event I really care about and I would gladly do some very bad things to go to any of the Olympic hockey games, but I’ve decided to give these tickets to you instead.

  • Jeff!

    My boyfriend and I live here in Vancouver, barely scraping by in this most expensive city. But we moved here from small town Alberta to do our thing – he screen-prints, just started up his own company (www.equinoxapparel.com), and I just opened a gallery with my best girls (see link). Life isn’t always easy out here, but it wasn’t always easy back home either! Like every good Albertan boy, my guy played hockey for most of his youth – driving hours to practice, jogging miles a day, living, breathing hockey. He ended up joining a band and that became his focus for a long time, but since moving to Vancouver has become all nostalgic for his hockey days – reading up on the history of the game, telling me stories about the most exciting games of all time (Canada vs. Soviet Union in the 70s), and watching the games when we can. We can’t really afford to attend the Canucks games, let alone an Olympic game – the best hockey game to be seen! But I know I would have one heck of a happy man if we could sit in that arena together. Thanks for doing this, you’ll make some lucky people totally stoked!
    Love,
    Tarah

    Hey Jeff!

    For some reason, my computer isn’t letting me into to your “Email me” link. Is it possible to give me your e-mail here?

    Or if for some reason you can’t, just e-mail me your address?

    Thanks so much!

    Alison.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
