the only earth?


did you think I was dead? never fear. I was just in Canada hanging out with my family.

Here's the abbreviated version since I'm kind of tired. Expansions and photos later.

Saturday: all day at the Gorge for Sasquatch. Overall, very good. The Flaming Lips were amazing. In addition to their music, they had people from Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, and The Thermals onstage in animal costumes. Coldplay was pretty good, and their light design was incredible.

Sunday: Met up with the family, drove to Vancouver, drove around the city, dinner in Yaletown surrounded by Canadian hipster/yuppies. We could hear the Flaming Lips playing from our hotel room (they were playing at NMW at the Plaza of Nations).

Monday: Biking in Stanley Park, walking around town, ferrying to Victoria, dinner in town.

Tuesday: Looking at shops in Victoria, riding in a little boat around the Harbor, outdoor fish & chips (for them), walking around the Empress Hotel, driving back to Seattle.
