City Opera Vancouver Presents Pauline

John Espley & Margaret Atwood

John Espley & Margaret Atwood

Hi Guys, John Espley here. Although my nickname is the “Mountain Man”, many folks don’t know I used to be a music student. I enjoy all sorts and styles of music but must admit that I’ve only attended a few operas in my time. I am so glad that one of those operas was the recent premier of Pauline. Pauline was written by the very special author, Margaret Atwood joined with the incredible talents of Tobin Stokes providing the musical composition. This was obviously a partnership destined to do great things. Read the rest of this entry »

The Passing of a Hotel

By John Espley.

small logoA few days back we introduced you to Accent Inns new cousin Hotel Zed. Today is the day when Hotel Zed officially comes into being but that also means we are saying goodbye to an old friend, The Blue Ridge Inn. Other than the general outline of the building, the transformation into Hotel Zed essentially removes all traces of Blue Ridge.

Think of it as saying goodbye to an old car. It did you well for many years. Only required servicing at the appropriate times but alas, the mileage was high and the style, well let’s just say not really anything that will ever obtain that “timeless” quality. Read the rest of this entry »

 
 

The Elder Scrolls Online: My Thoughts On The Game To Date

es4-620x350This June will mark my fourth E3 since we moved terrors on its own but our second office.  During my second E3 after the move, Bethesda had a closed-door presentation of their next entry into the phenomenally popular Elder Scrolls series.

Considering that the previous year they had shown off Skyrim prior to its launch, the idea of a massive online version of the fantasy series certainly raised a lot of expectations as well as questions. The game is now released and after spending several hours in the beta as well as several hours with the launch version of the game I’m giving my overview of the game in its current state.

I believe that it is very difficult to review a game of this type because it is a constant changing game set in a constant changing world that doesn’t really have a clear beginning middle or end. Read the rest of this entry »
