Free Thinkers / Collage Collage

Free Thinkers / Collage Collage
There are two reasons to be excited about Lifetime’s new publication, Free Thinkers. Reason #1: This issue features my new best friend Erin Boniferro and her amazing creative space, Collage Collage. (We’ll be doing something together, stay tuned.) Reason #2: It’s FREE.

Read the article about Erin, here.

The Juice Truck (Secret)

Booooooom Poketo wallet giveaway with The Juice Truck
Heads up Vancouver, I have given the last of our Booooooom x Poketo wallets to my buddy Zach at The Juice Truck (Abbot St + Water St). Any juice or smoothie purchase gets you a FREE wallet ($20 value) but you have to ask for it, it’s not advertised anywhere!

The amount of wallets left may last a week or so? (just a guess.)

PS – Zach says they are open 11:30AM – 5:00PM everyday.

Playground

Playground.is The Human Statues, Its So Simple
There is a scene in Efterklang’s film “An Island” where the band performs with local people from a small town and although it is obvious that most of them are not musicians they are all playing instruments alongside the band. It is a beautiful scene (I admit I shed a tear the first time I watched it), and I was so inspired by it I began brainstorming ways that I could create a similar experience with bands here in Vancouver. I didn’t take the idea any further than my notepad.

Last week I discovered that some fellow Vancouverites have started doing this very thing! They call it Playground. The premise is simple: One band, one audience, one goal. Create a song together, and then record it in less than an hour.

Watch a video of the most recent Playground event below!
