Tickets for tonight’s Pecha Kucha (Vancouver) sold out more than a week ago but if you got yourself tickets, I’ll see you there! I’ll be speaking LAST. Oh, come see me afterwards, I have gifts for you all!
Tickets for Pecha Kucha Vancouver (May 21 – 7pm) are now available online!!! I will be speaking there along with eleven other people including designer Marian Bantjes! I listened to her speak at Justified West and I could feel previously unused parts of my brain coming alive. You do not want to miss this! Tickets are only $10 and they will sell out. Get them here.
If you don’t already know about Pecha Kucha, each speaker shows 20 slides for 20 seconds, and there is no pausing or reviewing of slides. So if someone is boring they are only boring for 400 seconds. Show up early and you get free booze. Feel free to bring tomatoes to throw at me – I was hoping I could go first and get it over with but it appears I am last so the pressure is on!

I want to preface this post by saying that if you send me something there is no guarantee I will write about it. I only write about what I like, and I receive a lot of product that I don’t mention on this site. Save yourself money by emailing me first! End rant. Ken runs a little sock company out of his apartment in Brooklyn, called Ashi Dashi. I love these ones he sent over that look like cigarettes!
My friend Andrew and I went to F5 today, and a lot of other people did too apparently. We had to snag seats in the balcony for the first part but moved to floor seats after lunch. It worked out because the presentations got better as the day went on. I was very excited to hear Asif Mian speak as part of 1stAveMachine’s presentation and speaking to him out in the lounge later on was a bonus.
