I had been meaning to share these Adam Ruins Everything clips, but only got around to it now. Cars and car dealerships have changed the North American landscape. We don’t question the environment we live in, but it doesn’t have to function this way necessarily. Adam may ruin everything, but he definitely gives us food for thought.
Here’s a neat video I came across while reading about East Van Market Gardens tour done by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation. It’s a 22-minute video that talks about the history of how Chinese immigrants farmed much of the area. This agricultural history all used to take place right in the middle of the city.
Here’s another urban themed video. Here’s a short, but breathtaking aerial perspective on Hong Kong. Doesn’t it make you want to visit.
A post because we need a change from the everyday from time to time. I hope the song and video brings a little Happy to your day.
I saw this originally on Price Tags. It’s a very interesting news doc to watch. The focus is primarily focused on the US and Australia. However, those of us in Vancouver are keenly aware that the same phenomenon is having an effect on our own local housing market.
Happy Friday y’all. Here’s more Japan-love in video form. This time, Aaron Grimes creates a unique blurred motion video with a unique technique.
I am a bit of a Japanophile and love watching any videos with Japan as the focus. Here’s a cute Vimeo video by Takuya Hasogone to brighten up your Thursday before the Easter long weekend.
If you like the song, it’s available on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/bo-en/miss-you
Won’t be posting until next Tuesday again. So enjoy the Easter weekend.
Here’s a cute promotional video to support the Yes vote for the current transit plebiscite. It’s been featured on other blogs, but I thought it worth posting here. It’s a small group of UBC students singing “I Get Around” with a transit bent.
A non-transit referendum related post to break things up for a bit.
An awesome new mural has appeared in an alley behind Columbia St between West 3rd and West 4th Avenues. Here’s a great time lapse to capture the creation of a very dynamic mural. Go to the mural and take some awesome jumping sidekick selfies with it! Hm…I should take my own advice 😛
Waiting sucks. Line-ups suck. Crowded trains suck. Being stuck in traffic sucks.
I think this strikes a better chord with people than the official Yes campaign’s numbers and facts. The man says just vote Yes!
