PlayStation 4 – Infamous

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

inFAMOUS_Second_Son-Delsin_Rocket_1377021656Recently I got the chance to have some up close and hands on time with the pending PlayStation 4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son. During our coverage of the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Sony had a massive exhibit space that featured everything from UHD Televisions to wearable tech and of course the PlayStation 4. The game is the third in the Infamous series and follows a new character named Deslin who is a graffiti artist in Seattle.

The city is under the crushing control of the Department of Unified Protection, or DUP and when his powers become active, Deslin must battle the DUP to restore freedom to the city. (more…)

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Training for Baja 1000For me, this crazy dream all started in 2008 when a good friend of mine and owner of Action Motorcycles, invited me on a dirt bike trip to a little town on the Sea of Cortes, San Felipe Baja Mexico.  This sounded like a fun adventure.  I had no idea that 6 trips later over 5 years, would have us lined up to race the toughest non-stop off-road race in the world. A Victoria BC Hotel Manager racing the 46th Baja 1000, who would have imagined that? (more…)

New Year, New Outlook

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

JanuaryCan you believe we’re already more than half way through January! I know folks that went ahead and made New Year’s resolutions are already cringing at the ones they’ve broken or have to “look forward” to. If making resolutions is your thing then all the power to you but I’m taking a different approach this year.

Although you don’t have to use January 1 as a “start date” for simplicities sake I’m going with it. I’m taking the approach that the past is the past and the future is open, flexible, untamed. The future is what we decide to make it (consciously or not). I’ve taken the approach of not looking back at all my mistakes, all the decisions I’ve made, all the things I may not have achieved  and then to make resolutions intended to change my behaviour(s) and to correct my discretions or avoidance in the past. Looking at the future I’ve started saying to myself (yes I talk to myself…lol) what is it that I want to do this year? Where do I want to go? Who do I want to see? (more…)

Worst of 2013 in Film and Game

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Justin, Joseph, and I put our list of the worst of 2013 in film and game. Drop us a line to let us know what you think and what we missed.

Joseph’s List

Man-Of-Steel-Henry-Cavill-Kal_El-3Man of Steel,
Despite it being a “fantasy” movie, it was just way over the top for me and I could not forgive the way it completely spit in the face of Superman lore.

The Lone Ranger
Johnny Depp reportedly made this film a requirement in order to secure his services for future appearances as Captain Jack Sparrow. You have to wonder what part of a big budget film based on characters that have not been relevant for over 60 years was a good idea for today’s audiences. (more…)

Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is Movin On Up

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Knowles House

Knowles House

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra  is in motion, the Administration that is. On February 1 we will move in to our new offices at Knowles House, 865 Bernard Ave., Kelowna.
We love the house and the location, right next to a park, beautifully manicured by the City of Kelowna, where we can envision summer concerts in our more freewheeling moments.

Everything’s on the ground floor and is totally accessible, which gives us the opportunity to bring our ticketing in house, with our own space where our patrons can pick up tickets, ask questions and get to know us a bit better. (more…)
