The Celebration of light is starting up at the end of July. (See earlier post for dates). I’ve always loved going downtown to watch these. It’s amazing to see the sky filled with fireworks and the crowds that come down to watch.

Here’s a link to a site that has some tips for taking pictures of Fireworks (I’ve taking pics/video of all 4 shows for the last 2 years so I’m always interested in this.

Canucks make big trade before the Draft

June 24th, 2006 No comments

The Vancouver canucks have made a big trade just before the entry draft that starts this afternoon.

The Following Vancouver Canucks are going to the Florida Panthers:

Alex Auld, Todd Bertuzzi, and Bryan Allen.

Alex Auld Todd Bertuzzi Bryan Allen

Coming to Vancouver are:

Robert Luongo, Lukas Krajicek and a 6th round Draft pick from today’s draft.

Roberto Luongo Lukas Krajicek 6th round draft pick

What do *I* think of this? Well I knew Bertuzzi had to be moved, I wasn’t too sad about that. What gets me is tossing Auld into that mix. He carried the Canucks since Cloutier went out. I’m sorry to see Alex go, but I hope it works out as best as possible for everyone envolved.

Mr. Dressup will disappear from the CBC lineup as of September 3rd, 2006.

cl_mr_dressup.jpg The show started in 1967 and the last episode made was in 1996.. it’s been in re-runs ever since. Right now the show it on every weekday morning at 11am, but starting July 3rd it’ll move to Sunday mornings only.

This is sad sad. I remember growing up with Mr. Dressup, the tickletrunk, Casey and Finnegan.

Appears to be counting down the milliseconds till it’s release next year.

Can’t wait to see a trailer.

ABC promises no LOST repeats.

June 9th, 2006 No comments

lost_logo_240.jpg Because of the legions of pissed off Lost fans this year, ABC has announced that it won’t air any reruns next season.

“Lost” will kick off its third season with seven new episodes in a row before going on hiatus to give a new drama, “Day Break,” the chance to begin. “Lost” will then return, either in late January or early February — and will air continuous new episodes through the end of the season.
