  • ❄️? Victoria’s coolest & most lit winter ticket is ? Butchart Gardens after dark

    ❄️? Victoria’s coolest & most lit winter ticket is ? Butchart Gardens after dark

    What can I say, this is ITTTTT. I can’t recommend something more highly than this. It’s worth every penny of $35. We got in for free because the newspaper did a free ticket advent calendar promo.  (If they do it next year the same, you have to get 10 days of discarded papers in a…

  • Beltane Rave @ MORTUARY in Olympia, WA

    So this is what I get for being single, psychotic and fancy-free on FB in April 2023: only the greatest indoor rave ever. Put bluntly, I’m trying to go to every event I can get to at this venue.  Incredible. Allow me to elaborate: I couldn’t resist finding out more about the venue when the…

  • open:ended’s Friday The 13th party (Victoria BC) part 2 ✌️

    {Just so you know I wasn’t kidding about the goth dommy mommy, here’s an almost-audio-only sample.? And a still image. ?} Now, I would like, if I may, to take you on a rather wild journey…   The promo poster, I should have tried to snag one, maybe I’ll get it printed ?Let’s just rattle…

  • open:ended’s Friday The 13th party (Victoria BC) part 1

    Well, I said I’d be back (unlike the Babes On Babes events) and I damn-well meant it! THEY FIXED THE LIFT!!  A COUPLE PEOPLE CAME WITH THEIR 4-WHEEL WALKER/CHAIRS! This party was ✌️?✌️ I feel myself breaking into Songtefon… [TBC in Part 2]

  • Babes On Babes Vancouver // FORTUNE SOUND CLUB

    Babes On Babes Vancouver // FORTUNE SOUND CLUB

    Let me review the venue first.  If you’ve ever heard of downtown Vancouver I supposed you’ve heard it’s dangerous; “a warzone” full of “the walking dead” and other such fashy, dehumanizing drivel. The people saying it’s dangerous are for-the-most-part totally ridiculous, when they’re middleclass tourists with cameras running through the clearly demarcated shooting galleries and…

  • Riva restaurant in Sidney BC lunch review

    4:27pm, Sun Oct 1 Debating the menu with myself now that my lunching friend has agreed to Riva tomorrow. At the moment I’m looking at the cauliflower fritters, the brussel sprouts, and the squid is a debate.  Calamari strips sounds delectable.  Maybe I’ll abstain from drinking to cut the budget, and also seem like less…

  • Langley Buffet (spoiler: it’s incredible)

    Langley Buffet (spoiler: it’s incredible)

    Holy shit I was just complaining about how Mandarin doesnt charge $13 for lunch anymore and then I move walking distance of this place.  How fucking incredible is that?  Maybe it tells you something about the relative cultures of outlying Vancouver VS outlying Toronto; the wild west rises again, or something.  (We’re on the frontier,…

  • FREQUINOX end-of-summer party (Victoria BC)

    FREQUINOX end-of-summer party (Victoria BC)

    First order of business: this shit is not accessible.  The elevator is broken, it’s a steep staircase and it’s a fairsize flight to get up if you’re on wheels etc etc. I would hate to read this review if I had a prohibitive mobility issue or whathaveyou and very minimal desire to live vicariously through…

  • Royal BC Museum, summer 2023; Angkor and T. Rex

    Royal BC Museum, summer 2023; Angkor and T. Rex

    These are the current main exhibits at the RBCM through the fall, and here is the review: 1) the Angkor exhibit is very long and beautiful but only worth seeing if 2D images really do nothing for you, and 2) the T. rex exhibit is very short and lackluster but very worth seeing if you…

  • Satan Wants You premiere (movie review)

    Satan Wants You premiere (movie review)

    A few weeks ago there was a piece on the local news about Satanic Panic in the 80’s and how it was related to the island.  That’s where this starts, in a way. Click here to skip directly to the review of the doc itself However, there’s some backstory on why this story was of…
