Vandals defaced the Vancouver 2010 Olympic clock again this morning in what some are calling the most vicious attack so far:
I shot this video in the afternoon - after the graffiti removal team had already been working for hours - so the clock must have been a pretty sorry sight this morning, before the pressure washing began.
UPDATE - Minutes after the early morning attack, Vancouver Police arrested three people nearby who were covered in white paint. Seriously, no kidding.

A $10 U-lock might seem like a good deal. Until a bike thief bashes it open with a spare pedal & crank and rides away on "his new bike", which is exactly what happened here.

No video tonight, but here's an interesting image from my stats provider indicating cities and countries from where people visit this page:
How many countries there can you name? (click to enlarge) If it's 12 or more, give yourself a pat on the back, like I did:
United States Patent #4608967: "Pat on the back apparatus".

Of course I had to film this when I saw it happening:
But he's not an escaped lunatic, or even an Emily Carr dropout gone rogue. He's Chris, the front-man for a local alternative band, filming footage for an upcoming music video.
"We're a band called Baboon Torture Division where I dress up in costumes and play music. It's pretty fun!"

Each month my neighbours & I team up to clean up our neighborhood and help Keep Vancouver Spectacular. I've also "adopted" my block, which takes about an hour twice per week.
Look here if you'd like to get involved in your neighbourhood.

The Monsters in the Meadow free outdoor movie series is back again this year, compliments of the Vancouver Park Board.
Last night's movie was the original 1931 Dracula, based on the Bram Stoker novel. The creepy classic was shown on a 340-square-foot outdoor screen set up by Woodhouse AV, who did a fang-tastic job of the event. Here's my brief video of the venue and ambiance:

The next and final outdoor movie will be on Friday, August 29th at 9pm near Second Beach in Stanley Park. See you there for Creature From the Black Lagoon!

After suffering a miserable week with lower back pain, I'm feeling well enough to start posting again, thanks in part to a loyal reader who offered me a new computer chair - and personally delivered it to my place!
Before: bad chair, bad posture
After: good chair, good posture
Thanks for your "support", loyal readers!
(P.S. - recognize what's on my computer screen? Click on the photos to enlarge)

You never know what you'll see people doing at the Vancouver Art Gallery. But I must say these people remind me of these people:

Responding to an incident earlier this week, dozens of new mothers rallied outside the H&M on Granville street today, then filed into the store to breastfeed their infants:

And wow, what a Festival Vancouver it is indeed, featuring dozens of free shows and live music at various locations across Vancouver this month. Here's a couple of fine acts I filmed at the Art Gallery today:
