Explored: Hockey Pucks

Posted on 28th February 2013 in explored

Spending a little time going through my old boxes of .stuff. I found my collection of hockey pucks.

I remember I had a set of them from the year our Peewee team won the Provincials back in the day. I had put tape around each of them to write which game of the Provincial Finals they were from. I didn’t find those pucks, I found the pucks that had all the team logos on them.

Needless to say, I saved the pucks from being lost forever, and they now are in a proper box labelled and everything.  This is a small selection of the pucks I had.

I found it funny that on the Canucks puck it says it’s made in Czechoslovakia, and the LA Kings puck is made in Canada. The LA Kings puck is an official puck, used in a game, and so was the team Canada puck. You can actually feel the hardness difference in the pucks between cheap collectors pucks and game used ones. All the pucks were used in games of the team represented on the pucks, except the Canucks one.

I used to roam in ice rinks a lot..

Tangoo Night

Posted on 20th October 2012 in events

Tangoo had their official launch on Thursday, October the 18th and invited me to come out to capture it with my camera.

What is Tangoo? Well, in their words

Effortlessly plan your night out. Whether it be with your friends, your significant other, or by yourself, it has never been easier to connect with Vancouver’s people and dining establishments.

The night started for me on my route at Tarracotta in Gastown, moved to Catch 122 across from the W2 building downtown, then off to Taste to conclude the evening. I had a friend, Parvej, who I found out afterwards was also shooting the evening on the other route Tangoo goers could go on. I’m not sure the exact places she went to though, but we all met at Taste in the end.

Great time, great event, great concept. It’ll be interesting to watch Tangoo spread it’s wings. They plan for once a week I guess.
