I've put together 14 high-quality original podsafe instrumental tunes from my Penmachine Podcast into a CD album you can buy. It also includes a bonus data DVD with a bunch of cool stuff that isn't on this website. Find out more...
Across the street from my office sits a decrepit old foundry, built in 1918 and long a red landmark on the east edge of Vancouver's downtown core. I've wondered why it hasn't been torn down: it really is in rough shape.
Well, it turns out that plans are afoot to disassemble the building, construct a parkade underneath, and then—yes really—rebuild it on top as a new mixed-use structure.
Or maybe not. The city's plan for the site hasn't been seriously updated since early 2004, so I'm not sure what's actually going to happen. If the update is supposed to occur before the 2010 Olympics (the athletes' village will be right next door), they'd better get moving.
