ALL ABOUT THE MOST VIBRANT,
CULTURALLY DIVERSE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

From the Editorial Desk



There won't be much of a musing this week, because CelticFest 07 is in full heat. I've lost track of how many times I've heard Whiskey In a Jar. Too many, but that's the worst complaint from the festival.
Come take in the parade on Sunday. East Van's Terminal City Rollergirls will be there, among tons of other people you might know.
On Wednesday night I went to the Afro-Celt Beats Without Borders concert. Saw many Drivers there and much fun was had by all.
On Thursday, the four members of the East Vancouver Limerick Allstars had their asses severely wooped by members of the audience in the Celtic Kink Limerick Challenge. Even seasoned slam poets RC Weslowski (Randy Jacobs), Chris Gilpin, Sean McGaragle and Nora Heslersmith couldn't avoid the feminine wiles of members of the Sweet Soul Burlesque. In this writer's opinion, though, Nora faired best! Nice to see familiar faces in the crowd.

A word of advice: Clean up your garbage. I'm not kidding. East Vancouver doesn't have to look like a crap hole. I saw a letter in one of the dailies suggesting that the city pay for advertising to remind people to pick up their garbage. I think it would be better if we spent money directing advertising to parents. Tell them to teach their kids to clean up. Perhaps we can breed some decent values into the next generation.
I'll leave you with a link to a Commercial Drive version of the popular Free Hugs video.

Sadly it really doesn't compare to the great real Free Hugs video with music by the Sick Puppies, but I applaud the sentiment all the same.
Until next week, keep doing good work, and keep in touch.
S.
