Vancouver Canucks Facebook Cover Images for the Stanley Cup 2012

Last year during the Canuck’s epic Stanley Cup run I posted some great Canucks profile icon images from Australian photographer / designer Rob Masefield (@masey).

Well the Canucks have just won their 2nd President’s Trophey in a row and are kicking off their playoff / Stanley Cup run this Wednesday and Masey has designed some great Facebook profile cover photos for Canucks fans.  They are free to download from his website.  Here are my favourites.

Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami Video and Photos

13 Mar

Wow! This is just unbelievable devastation. My heart goes out to Japan and I hope the best for a speedy recovery after this catastrophe.

In this video you can see the dry street after the earthquake … and then in less than 5 minutes entire houses start floating by. This is an amazing display of Mother Nature’s power.


The  Guardian newspaper in the UK has a massive photogallery of tsunami photos here.

Canada’s CBC has a lot of ongoing details about the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear fallout from their reactors here.

How can you help?

The CBC has put together a relief page with tons of information about helping and donating to the Japanese disaster. Click here for full information or just click on this image below.
