Been a Sparse November – S04E07

At The Rainbow Bistro on November 20, 2008It has been almost several weeks since going to a concert in Ottawa. Aside from the Ottawa Food & Wine Show from 2 weeks ago, I haven’t gone to any fun and interesting concerts lately. On Thursday night, I went to The Rainbow Bistro to check out The Balconies, who were one of the opening or ending acts for Whale Tooth. Another band that perform was Under The Weather. Overall, I enjoyed Whale Tooth and The Balconies as both bands brought some dynamic energy to their performances. Finally, The Balconies get a good crowd after usually being the opener acts at other concerts.
Here’s a silly photo my brother took using someone’s Canon EOS 5D. Pointing or thumbing at one of the members of The Balconies.

Oh yea, I am happy to get Doctor Who: The Complete Fourth Series on DVD. I have not got a chance to look at the special features and listen to the audio commentaries for the episodes.
Another yearly tradition is getting toques at Roots.
I am still video gaming with Guitar Hero World Tour on the Nintendo Wii but I hear so much talk of people playing Gears of War 2 and this zombie game on Xbox 360, Left 4 Dead.
That’s all for now.

Enduring The 23rd Annual Ottawa Food & Wine Show and The Week That Was – S04E06

At The 23rd Annual Ottawa Food & Wine Show

What a way to endure the 23rd Annual Ottawa Food & Wine Show at the Lansdowne Park/Ottawa Civic Centre. It was my second time to be at the event as I previously went when it was at the Ottawa Congress Centre several years ago. This time, I went with my bro but he was with his friends and I was hanging out with a professional photographer, local singer, Ana Miura (pictured above) and two other people. Great moments were seeing some people I know from elsewhere and it couldn’t of made me any happy seeing them for a bit. I didn’t go for the wine as I was interested in the food aspect of the event. I only went for Big Daddy’s Crab Shack & Osyter Bar’s osyters and Arc The Hotel’s smoked salmon. Overall, it was fun time but later on, it was getting insane with the huge crowds as we tried to go through them. Four hours of walking straight was really straining. After leaving the Civic Centre, I did not expect to see a very long lineup, it was just crazy.
As you see on the photo that I was being very silly with the facial expression.

In other past events that happened, the US finally elected the first African-American President, Barack Obama. I stayed glued to CBC’s coverage instead of the US networks. I did flip through the US networks at times. I did not know about CNN’s “so-called” use of hologram for their election coverage.
I had a blast volunteering CKCU’s 2008 Funding Drive. I did 3 phone shifts to answer donation pledges. I met some radio hosts and they were pretty nice and funny to talk to.
Even the news was over a week old, I was saddened to hear David Tennant leave Doctor Who after four 2009 Specials. Tennant’s Doctor has become my favorite and best of the Doctor played so far. Let’s hope the 11th Doctor will fill in his shoes in an excellent manner. Tennant was “fantastic” being the lonely Time Lord. Fantastic was the word used by the current and the 9th Doctor.
To end the entry, it was totally awesome to have the warm weather hit Ottawa this week. It gave me a good time to put up Christmas lights outside of the house. I wouldn’t put them if the weather was pretty cold. What a wonderful week to start November.
