The Quiet Place

By low on May 13, 2004 - 11:06pm




The phone was disconnected on Thursday, who needs it anyway. Just brings bad news. Last night was alright. I did a solo pub crawl up Granville St, drinking and smoking my way to 8pm. I went to the quiet place for a bit and listened in on a couple discussing their relationship. They had not been together long, and the woman had just left a guy who threatened suicide on a regular basis. They talked about their future together, she told him how she didn't want her ex anymore, and that she would never do anything to hurt him. She was nothing to look at, but I was jealous anyway. After awhile the woman looked at me and asked if I was listening to them. I told her that it was hard in a place this quiet to not hear what people are saying. Then she asked me for one of my Camels.

Storyeum and Gastown Parkade under construction. Not too many days left until the scheduled June 1 opening. I don't think the parkade will be ready, but it looks like the Storyeum might be.

Our apologies for the ads (prefixed by 'ADV:') on the right hand side. They were added by the free service that we used to create the feeds, 2RSS.com.

I have removed the 2RSS.com feeds and will replace them with feeds that don't have ads. The ads should be gone by the end of the day.

More heavy metal in Gastown. This photo is of a Terex machine which is renovating the Gastown Parkade. Underneath the Gastown Parkade, will be the Storyeum ("A live storytelling experience about the spectacular history of BC set in a new underground theatre in Vancouver's Gastown District") which is scheduled (incredibly because it appears to be a long way from completion) to open on June 1st.
