Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The people of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

TRUST. We Vancouverites know our stupid, mindless riots. That shit ain’t no damn riot. Not even CLOSE.

Last night at Third Beach. — This is one of the last frames I ever shot with my 50mm lens, as it died shortly after in a drop onto my living room floor. On the bright side it’ll be cheap to replace, and I don’t have client work booked for the next week! 

My hood. Not bad, huh?

In a moss-draped rain forest in British Columbia, towering red cedars live a thousand years, and black bears are born with white fur.

those are Kermode bears and they are wonderful (terrifying but also wonderful)

Less than an apartment.

Yeahhh… that would be the EAST coast. Not nearly as cheap on the West side, given that people like Paul Allen buy ours.

On the right is the beautiful Ormidale Building (aka “151”) where I lived/worked for parts of the last decade. On the left, the Flack Block, which housed my old office at the alt. weekly Terminal City. Not seen here - but immediately around the corner - my current pub/place of work.

Eaton’s Marine Room restaurant, 515 West Hastings, 1954
Now Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings was originally Spencer’s Department Store, and then Eaton’s and Sears before becoming SFU’s downtown campus.
Two years before this postcard was produced, Jim Munro and his twenty year-old bride Alice relocated from Ontario to a pink stucco house on Arbutus Street across from Kitsilano Beach because Jim got a job at Eaton’s. After a decade in Vancouver, the couple moved to Victoria and opened Munro’s Books, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The couple is no longer together, but he’s still running the store and she’s now a Nobel Laureate. For a taste of how the city came across in her stories, see “Alice Munro’s Vancouver.”

Ugh. Looks like the rain returns next week. This is about the time when I start having footwear panic.
