    On a related historical note- I got to visit The Nikkei Internment Centre Museum in New Denver last year. What a great space, and what a great/respectful monument to a shameful chapter in Canadian history. I recommend it to anyone passing through the West Kootenays/Slocan Valley, whether they are of Nikkei/Japanese-Canadian descent, or are just curious about BC history.
    Also, The Langham Theatre in Kaslo was an internment space- I got a tour through it when I showed a film there in November. Sandon, too, was used to intern Nikkei during World War II; a lot of communities here saw Nikkei from the coast “resettled” and interned as possible conspirators or some other lame xenophobic designation through the bulk of the 1940’s.
    Anyhow, not to go off on a rant, but it’s definitely a period in our shared history worth (re)visiting and learning more about.

    Dear sir,
    Please print your ‘Dear Louis Vuitton’ on a canvas bag and send it to me in Australia.
    It makes me chuckle.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
