The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

You know that things are gonna be different around City Hall when...

... the first proclamation that the 72.7% new city government makes is in honour of punk rockers instead of the usual brigade of socialites or captains of industry. Yup, yesterday was declared D.O.A. Day in Vancouver. Officially, it had something to do with honouring the band's 25-year history and contribution to Vancouver musical lore, but D.O.A., and their founder and leader Joe Keithley, have also done their share of social and political activism. So there.

If you don't know who D.O.A. is, then you'd better learn.

If you don't like D.O.A., dial 1-800-EAT-SHIT.

(Of course I used to have that bumper sticker. I am a punk-rock listening lout from Vancouver, after all.)
