Vancouver City Chase

By Richard Eriksson on April 26, 2004 - 10:12pm

BitterWoo points out that The City Chase is coming to Vancouver May 15th. I saw a mini-documentary of this a couple weeks ago, and it looks interesting: evidently it is "part urban obstacle course, part scavenger hunt". I've heard of urban scavenger hunts that my friends have gone on for fun (the stories I hear of them are unsuitable for a family weblog), but The City Chase looks like the commercialized and organized version of amateur ad hoc events.

Losing is Liberating?

By Richard Eriksson on April 26, 2004 - 9:59pm

Tom Benjamin links to a Victoria Columnist letter arguing that it could be worse for Canucks fans: we could have another series to be nervous about, and says that to an extent. Tom agrees:

I don't have to watch. If I don't find the game to be compelling, I don't have to keep watching. I'm willing to entertain alternatives to watching the hockey game. So the Leaf fan is definitely right. In one sense, losing is liberating. On the other hand, I do wish for some more agonizing next year.Canucks Corner NHL Weblog: On Liberation

Canadian Idol 2004 Auditions in Vancouver

By Boris Mann on April 26, 2004 - 1:16am

I was coming back from Vancouver Island today, and overheard quite a few young hopefuls heading to the Plaza of Nations for the Vancouver auditions for Canadian Idol.

Apparently, many are planning to stay in line overnight: the line up began at 6pm on Sunday, April 25th, and the auditions begin at 8am Monday morning.

Good luck, Vancouver idol-ers!
