This building houses The Warehouse Studio which in it’s self is super cool but I love it because when the light is just right these frosted windows that open into what I imagine is the studio’s courtyard become these wicked urban soft-boxes illuminating a shaded sidewalk/street area.
This morning was started by an awesome visit from clients & friends Sandra & Tyler who brought us donuts an coffee from Lucky’s Doughnut’s on main street and we had one of those good visits like i always imagined my parents did when i was a kid and the neighbour from up the road would just stop in for coffee.
Today I was interviewed for the Gastown Gazette. They are that lovely hyperlocal rag that has been doing some great journalism around the anti-gentrification folks in our hood. You know, those folks that protest The Pigeon Restaurant, and wander though Gastown with hoods and torches…Yup I said hoods & torches… yup just like a Southern linch mob of old….
I imangine it was like this…well like this at about 59 seconds in that is :)
Anyway the Gastown Gazette broke the story of the flame wielding Gastown mob (I wonder what the carbon footprint of a flame wielding lynch mob is?) two days before the folks at the CBC. So what ever side of the whole anti-gentrification debate you stand on you have to admit that that is just good journalism.
Anyway the interview was about the arts and not the hood. I will let you know if & when it is posted :) but the walk there and back was a good one.
