It's snowing again today, but it was a better fall than last time & since I have the day off I went out to take photos.

Looking out the door.

Today it snowed! It wasn't much, but it was still really cool being somewhere when it's snowing.

The snow at my work at about 10am this morning. My work's entrance can be seen on the left edge of the picture and the van on the left is the work van.

The snow from around lunchtime while we were out on a job fixing signs.

Frosty Coldness

Some random pics of my daily trip to work on the bus & the uber frost that has been there every morning this week. The weather has gone from constant rain to perfectly blue skies & chilly mornings, the highs get up to about 5 degrees & gets down to -5 degrees.

Survival & X-mas

Since I got my job I haven't had much time to explore and take photos of things, in fact I haven't had much time for anything. My job is pretty much the same sort of thing as my job back in NZ.
It's definitely winter here now, the temperature is sitting around 5-8 degrees highs and it has been raining for most of November, there has been flooding on Vancouver Island and there is a 4 1/2 metre snow base at Whistler (one of the mountains a few hours north, where some of the Olympic events are going to be held) and the local mountains across in North Vancouver have opened early. Duane is going snowboarding tomorrow up at Cypress, while I have to go to work.

Duane's grandparents sent him across a survival package along with his winter clothes. I really miss being able to go down to the local dairy or service station and buy a mince & cheese pie.

The Christmas lights on the house across the street, they have been up for the past week or so. I think it's a little early for them to be up. The shops have been selling Christmas stuff since before Halloween.

Halloween In Vancouver

Here are the last of the House of Horrors pics and a few other randoms.

NHL commentators look exactly like NRL commentators. It's not the best photo but you get the idea.

Americans are weird.

People of Walmart proof that some people shouldn't breed, but then again live would be less interesting without them.

Giant Spider & Red Leaves

Another big spider that I found crawling along the floor, its leg span was about 10cm.

Thursday, September 24, 2009


Today I went to Stanley Park, which is located at the west end of downtown Vancouver. I finally saw some raccoons (one of them bit my knee to say hi) and took lots of pictures and some video. I also took pictures of lots of other animals and things around the park.

But first...

Our pet northern black widow spider in our bathroom, it's either a male or an immature female. And yes it is poisonous but it doesn't bother us, so don't bother it, plus it kills the slaters/woodlice that live in the bathroom.

Very Intriguing Article & Videos

Here are a few links to some of the reference material that I am using to write my epic story.
Astro-Theology - an article about the origins of western religious belief.
Zeitgeist - a movie along similar lines to the article.
Zeitgeist: Addendum - a continuation of the movie.
I'm not sure about what they say is true or not or somewhere in between. But it makes sense to me and the issues discussed in them relate well to the direction that my stories are taking.

Here's the 2 movies

Zeitgeist: Addendum

The mouse joins the X-Men

Since Disney brought Marvel there has been an influx of mashups featuring characters from both companies. Here is my first one, I created in Photoshop in about an hour, so it's nothing special. I will probably do some others that I've actually drawn myself rather than just sticking pictures together and adding colour.

The Zombie creation myth as told by the Zombie high preist

Here is the first story from the world I am creating for the novel I'm writing. Let me know what you think about it.
This story concerns the neo-zombie creation myth in my world of imaginings. The zombies are living in a post apocalyptic world and they have managed to reproduce, as they had been reduced to their base instincts: eat, sleep, reproduce. Due to the sped up metabolism that they live with, they grow quickly and live for only a few years. So many generations of zombies have been born and died during the events leading up to the main story of the novel and they have evolved into a tribal hunter gatherer society and have regained a degree of the intelligence the 'survivors' (who live within the walls of The City) possess. Though the 'survivors' live a meager existence that is highly controlled and regulated.

Puppets and Spiders and Random

Here are a few random pictures of recent stuff. The puppets are for random video's that Duane & I are going to make, that may or may not involve Monkeys and/or Squirrels. They will be ultimately meaningless random stupidity and I will post them on YouTube as well as this blog.
