We Were Never Being Boring

Wow, Saturday night's Pet Shop Boys concert was brilliant!! Fantastic show!!

When the Pet Shop Boys sang Jealousy, I was instantly resonating with the song and its lyrics....

Where've you been?
Who've you seen?
You didn't phone when you said you would...
Do you lie?
Do you try
To keep in touch? You know you could
I've tried to see your point of view
But could not hear or see
For jealousy

I never knew time passed so slow
I wish I'd never met you...

The Pet Shop Boys didn't sing What Have I Done To Deserve This, which caused me major sadness. I was also looking forward to Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money). The set was so simple and effective, though, made up entirely of white cardboard boxes, which would collapse and crumble and then get rebuilt again into different shapes and walls, which was used as a projection screen. At the end, they were lifted into the air and spiraled like hanging mobiles. So good!!!

One of my favourite songs in the entire world is by the Pet Shop Boys, and when they sang it, I was in heaven. Here's Being Boring:

Saturday Morning Cartoon Party!

This Saturday, the Rio Theatre will be host to another Saturday Morning Cartoon Party! Tickets available now online! I've never been but have been wanting to go, so will most likely check this out. Wear your pajamas, bring a bowl for discounts on the sugary cereals (Frankenberry, BooBerry, and more!!) and come enjoy the retro cartoons from 10am - 12pm, to be followed by a screening of the classic, The Neverending Story!

Swarm 2009!!

Time for the annual Fall art gallery hop known as Swarm!!

It takes place this Thursday and Friday around town and if you haven't swarmed before, it's one of the most interesting experiences you can have here in Vancouver! From the amazing artwork one can come across to the neighbourhoods you get to explore that you might never have before (i.e. the Downtown Eastside).

I've been looking forward to this all summer!!
