Vancouver’s own Kyprios has released an official / unofficial playoff anthem for the Vancouver Canucks. The song is already hitting the airwaves on local radio stations and you’ll hear it banging out of cars very soon. Go Canucks Go!
(Don’t forget, Kyprios hosts our GIVE: A fundraiser for Fuck Cancer on Friday April 22 @ the Jewel Ballroom. Full details here.)

The line up is now announced for Vancouver’s best summer music festival – LIVE at Squamish. I was there for the inaugural year last year and it was a blast. The venue was beautiful, the festival was well organized and people generally seemed to have a great time. From all the blog posts, Facebook comments and Tweets the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Of course there were some hiccups that come with a first year concert festival, but we can easily give LIVE At Squamish a pass on those.
If you missed last year, here’s 55 hours of festival in a 4 minute video.
And here is the official recap video.

Great documentary produced by those guys at Vice Magazine that looks at Alberta’s oil sands projects from a few different angles. This comment on the video from user “moobys” sums it up better than I ever could:
I work in the oil sands and I appreciate your documentary. There wasn’t any Greenpeace or PeTA agenda nor were there any gross exaggerations (some documentaries exaggerate the average income, etc). Perhaps with more integrity in journalism people wouldn’t protest the oil sands development from their condo in suberbia sucking back lattes, but come here during our coldest month and see for theirselves how yes, it is a boomtown, and yes, it is a hard life, but look at all the people here who need the development and who don’t want it to go away. We want it just to be managed and safe for everyone here.
There’s an excellent quote towards the end of the 3rd video
This is a huge experiment. This thing is out of control. Produce. Produce. Produce. And that’s where we’re going.
Why the mad rush to take all this oil out? Take your time. Develop safely, make sure it’s sustainable. Instead of taking it all out in 40 years – make it last 200 years so it doesn’t stop.
