Yesterday I took my old man to the CFL football game in Moncton. He's a huge CFL fan and he's been stoked to go since it was announced a year ago.

The event itself was really smooth. Buses ran quickly from parking to the stadium. Lines moved efficiently. Beer available everywhere! Nice work Moncton!

The football was sloppy. A lot of fumbles and interceptions... many in scoring range. It was a weird game.

The one really funny thing was this red-haired, freckled kid two rows in front of me. Now I don't like to label people... but this kid lived up to the stereotype. 100% Team Ginger! Some fool felt it was a good idea to arm him with a Vuvuzela??? As such, in good ginger form he made it a mission to piss off everybody around him. He buzzed that thing in the ears of the rows in front of him and swung it around hitting the girl sitting in front of me in the face.

Eventually, the kid's dad finally clued-in and took it away. Staying true to form little ginger cried, stamped his feet, and then pouted! Super Funny!

Welsford at Night

Last time I went to Welsford I tried my luck at a few nighttime long exposures. The sky was without clouds and no moon. It didn't go as well as I'd hoped. I set a 45 minute exposure and went to sleep... but when I woke up... the battery had died without taking the shot. I did manage to sqeeze off this 5 minute exposure for interests sake though. I'm surprised how much movement in the stars there was in that little time.

Cauliflower Math

My mind wandered sitting around tonight waiting for Hurricane Earl to hit. What's a hurricane and a cauliflower have in common? Spirals. That's what. Digging through this week's veggie box I found a head of cauliflower that is mathematic in it's symmetry.

Trippy eh? Maybe I just need to dial-back on the veggies... I'm going crazy.

New From Big Up

It's tough for me to get excited about indoor climbing flicks... but this is well done.
