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!

They're ba-a-a-a-ck!

A pleaseant surperise this morning: after a two-year hiatus, those lovable culture jammers at Guerrilla Media (as opposed to the humourless ones at, say, Adbusters) have a brand-new Vancouver Sun spoof, which has littered coffee shops, coin boxes, and newsstands around the city.

Apparently the election is off, there's a new time limit on how much health care you can get in BC, CEOs are underpaid, and 100% of Vancouverites choose CanWest Global news for their daily fix. Who'd a thunk it?

The last time Guerrilla spoofed the Sun, publisher Dennis Skulsky went apeshit, threatening to sue anyone who had anypart in the parody. Guerrilla hadn't done anything since, possibly out of fear, or perhaps they were saving their best material for four days before the election. Either way, I'd love to have seen Skulsky fuming away today.
