I went tonight to see the band at crowded, hip and service-poor bar The Whip. The band was great—they’re managed by Kris Krug.

I, of course, forgot to get the name of the band.  But when I find it, I’ll let you know.

I luckily found an empty chair at the table with Jeremy Wright and Arieanna-and-Ianiv, so it was like a super mini blogger meetup, too.

(Vancouver blogger meetups regularly happen at the Whip, in case you’re interested.  In fact, Hop Studios is sponsoring the next six months of Blogger meetups, it just so happens.)

Kris recently moved back to Vancouver from the San Francisco area, and will be co-writing Susie’s next book

He’s been hanging out at our place recently, using the wifi and working on his chapters.  It’s been fun.

Oh, why did I call The Whip “service-poor”? It took at least 45 minutes from the time I arrived to the time the waitress even came back to our table—and that only happened because I got up and starteed roaming around, looking for her.

Rick Smolan: A Ton of Humility


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
