Let the Revelry Begin!!!

  • 2006 – HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!Eye
  • A sweet electric missive from faraway techie pals in Australia…

    A raised glass or three from Ian in London….

    A heartfelt text message from Zephie, in the depth of Clog Country…

    A telephonic tryst with Tobias amidst rooftop fireworks in Berlin…

    It’s not even midnight in Vancouver, Canada – and I’m already celebrating my blessings in the face of the coming year. Some have posed the theory that tonight’s televised BS marathon is a sign of ‘good things’ to come in 2006.

    Maybe.

    But for me – to be surrounded by an ever-growing cadre of folks that I can wholeheartedly call friends – the ‘good things’ aren’t off on some distant horizon – they just keep rolling in like the tides…day after glorious day..

    Thank you. All of you.

    So with that, let’s rock with truthful tongues, raised fists, and open hearts for the next 365. Just promise to send pictures – we want to share our family with the world! :D

    2006 is…

  • For the eschatologist in us all…Eye
  • …’nuff said ============>

    Happy impending man-made calendrical transition! And folks, I solemnly swear – there will be at least one rambling, ranty, old-school, pimp-free, sellout-absent, blood ‘n’ guts, personal and revelatory post to ring in the first week of the “new year”. But until that promised (and, with my luck, moderately ‘magical’) day? To quote Tycho, the smooth-pated and painfully eloquent Loki of gamers’ Valhalla – Penny Arcade:

    “Buy a Goddamn T-Shirt!”

    Bond.

    Word is Bond.

    Hard Times = Collector’s Item???

    Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

  • CLICK HERE FOR ITEM LISTING Eye
  • (NOTE: I seriously have NO idea which one of our talents posted this, as I stumbled across it during a late-night round of Googling. Not wanting to wound his or her pride with direct contact, I thought that maybe one of you would want to score the karmic one-two by offering a helping hand and landing a rarity. Not sure if it’s still available, but figured this is as good a place as any to do a shout out. Peace – BB)

      BROKEN SAINTS DVD SET

      …Autographed by most of the Voice Talent…

      This is a great collector’s item for fans of the locally made Broken Saints anime/web cartoon. Great series!

      This is the real deal, ’cause I was actually a voice actor on it (with a very small part!).

      This is my personal copy (in perfect shape), but make me an offer. These are hard times!

    :(

  • white christmas in the woods near Berlin subtle arts logo

    Greetings of the season, whatever your persuasion!

    I’m a couple of days late here, I know, but I wanted to drop a line to all and sundry, and I wanted to post something non-contentious, just for kicks. I thought that our surprise snowfall was something to share, since it doesn’t happen all that often here. I also wanted to share something that a musical friend just sent back to us, which just made me smile so much I couldn’t keep it to myself. I hope he doesn’t mind…

    So, with no further ado, I give you Ian Beaty’s ‘Snowglobe’ – Ian, who has just moved back to Vancouver from Berlin, produced and sang the lead vocal and it also features “a bunch of perfect strangers I recorded at Heathrow airport, and some tasty guitar playing from Vancouverite, Steve Charles”. Let it play a minute or so, it’s well worth it!

    Also (I almost forgot this!) I thought I’d point out that I am a featured artist this week at UBL – the Ultimate Band List – they’re plugging me, I guess I can plug them back! There’s some other great indie stuff to discover there too, have a look around! And hey, while we’re being all full of christmas cheer, why not a positive political link for a change? The good tidings just won’t stop flowing!

    Well, anyway, I hope you’re all well and have something to be happy and thankful for at this time of the year… or, if you prefer, any or all other times of the year (what the heck, I say! Wishes are free!)

  • Would you sit on this man’s lap? Eye
  • They claim that the ‘hat’

    says a lot about the ‘man’

    but what of the ‘eyes’?

    (Benedict XVI sports some pagan headgear here. I can roll with that – clearly he’s attempting to ‘connect’ with audiences in a playful and festive way. But why do I keep hearing the Imperial March in my head, alongside the prophecies of St Malachi?)
