Look out Iowa, here I come! I have been asked to jury a student exhibition over at Grinnell College, I look forward to meeting all you Iowans. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
My friends at Poketo joined forces with South Korea-based Eco Party Mearry to release a bunch of awesome bags, and I have two to give away! The bags are made entirely of recycled street banners from the streets of Seoul! Great idea!
Share a knock knock joke in the comments below. The best two get ‘em!
It appears we have a mystery on our hands!
Last week my friend Shinead and I came across all these beautiful piles of plaster letters laid out on the boardwalk on Granville Island. We waited around for awhile hoping someone would come along and explain what they were for. Shinead noticed a whole pile of O’s and we thought it would be fun to quickly shoot an image for the header of the site. Eventually a girl came along and asked if we had removed the letters from the hill around the corner. We hadn’t. She informed us that they were part of an art project by a student at Emily Carr University but didn’t know much else about them. We waited for a little bit longer and then left.
Yesterday I received an email from Shannon McCubbin expressing her surprise to see her letters being used as our new header graphic! She attached the following image of her installation on the hill:
Sadly, Shannon informed me that the letters have all gone missing! They were quite expensive to produce and she is trying to track them down. I’m sure someone grabbed them thinking they were free. I was tempted to take a letter when I came across the piles too, but then I remembered I’m not a THIEF (haha sorry). But seriously, if you are the person who took the letters I’m sure Shannon won’t be mad, she just wants them back!
Email Shannon any info, an apology, or a word of encouragement here.
Everyone in Vancouver is partying right now! I love it! Team Canada dominated Norway 8-0 (sorry Norway) and we took to the streets!

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.
Want to win them?
