12-28 February: Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

I fell in love with the Nagano Winter Olympics (devotees will recall my Johnny Moseley impression)! There’s something so Nancy Drew meets James Bond about it all! Living in Vancouver for the past couple years, it’s been so exciting feeling the anticipation for 2010 build! If I’m incommunicado during the games, it’s because I’ve either set up camp at LiveCity, am enjoying the craic at Irish House, or trying to track down Stephen Colbert! T-11 days and counting!

14 February: Valentine’s Day

15 February: Pup’s birthday

Bowie turns 2! Hopefully she won’t become an angstful teen!

19 February: Shutter Island

Scorsese and DiCaprio are such class acts for making such first rate films- The Departed is my all time favorite! Paramount, not so much for pushing back the release date. As if Martin and Leo weren’t enough of a draw, Denis Lehane’s brilliant homage to classic Gothic literature is storytelling at its absolute best. Tom Stechshulte reads it wonderfully.

28 February: Hyannis Marathon

I’ll be cheering my sister on as she runs her first marathon. Go Doone! I’ve already been promised the exclusive interview, so stay tuned!

February: Road Trips

To the North: The Sea to Sky Highway. To the South: The Pacific Coast Highway. It doesn’t get more beautiful than this! Cue the wide shots and Wagner in the spirit of James Bond zipping along the corniche. Well…more like Canned Heat in the spirit of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty going up the country in their old jalopy.

This one goes out to Skinz:

Doone, is that Audrey Griswold at :22 seconds?!

Looking Forward To In January

8 Jan
Early January: Beard Papas Opens on Robson
Don’t let the baffling branding and surreal origin story- a treat just as fluffy and lovable as Beard Papa’s beard- put you off, Beard Papa-san makes a mean cream puff.

21 January: KT Arrives on the Scene

I love playing host and having the opportunity to experience a place from a new perspective.
26 January: IRM

Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck’s beautiful collaboration will finally released after teasing me since November! Watch the video for Heaven Can Wait here. P.S. Hear the entire album here on NPR Music, a week before it’s release.
Late January: Japa Dog Restaurant Opens on Robson

Home of the Terimayo, Misomayo, and Oroshi,Vancouver’s best loved street vendor gets new digs this winter. There seems to be no limits to the Asian Fusion movement and I’m loving every minute of it!
