This may shock, but I’ve set up google notifications to let me know when specific things are happening on the internets. I don’t manually scour for new bands, sites, things or books. This time a link to a review came up, and I thought I would take a look. The review actually started off with “Every now and then a band comes along and . . .” but before I closed that tab in the browser I took note of the band. After all, I’m here to look for new things that please me, not make fun of 17 year old reviewers. We were all 17 once.
Let’s give Annabel credit - these songs are well crafted. They are worthy of praise (but deserve better than cliche). The music is both driving and intricate. It’s complex without getting prog. Trust me, just listen to it.
Every now and then a GIF comes along and changes everything, it puts your life into perspective and shakes you to the very core of your being.
Check out spacing.ca - and it’s a wonderful hub of all things city. And not just the vast and nameless “city” but also very specific Canadian cities. So much of this site is fantastic, but this article is about two of my favourite buildings in Vancouver, the Macmillan Bloedel and the BC Hydro building. Also known to me as Waffles and Honeycomb. It’s not a weird food thing, the Macmillan Bloedel really looks like a waffle standing on edge, and the BC hydro building has a six sided floor plate. And in case anyone is reading, they also sell these t-shirts.
