I was just watching an old Seinfeld rerun–a 1996 episode called “The Showerhead” where Jerry and his buddies are forced to purchase “black market” showerheads through Newman because they can’t get enough water pressure to decently rinse their hair–and noticed something interesting.
At the part in the show where Elaine corners Jerry’s mom on the way to his washroom so she can intercept some of her pee for a drug test, you can clearly see some of the VHS titles on the bookshelf to their left.
Just in time for rush hour.
TransLink has sent out a 4:05 p.m. update saying the Millennium Line is now operating between VCC-Clark and Sapperton stations.
"The Expo line is expected to open within the next hour," the update states.
Earlier today (July 21), a "technical issue" shut down the Expo and Millennium lines.
Passengers stuck on SkyTrain cars were escorted by staff along guideways to the nearest station.
Vancouver police have tweeted that taxis from outside of the city are welcome to pick up passengers without fear of being ticketed.
The VPD tweet at 3:43 p.m. today states that this will only be permitted until SkyTrain service returns.
Serious problems with the SkyTrain system have caused havoc for transit passengers.
Many have bolted out of open doors between stations rather than wait for help.
TransLink's warning to remain in cars seems to have fallen on deaf ears.
Today I found out that all women are equal, feminists are whiny, grouchy babies, and I need to make my man a sandwich stat!
At least that’s the conclusion I’ve reached after reading all the tweets containing the hashtag #WomenAgainstFeminism.
Yay! The patriarchy is over!
(Pro-tip: It's not.)
At first, I was angry and thought this:
Fans of Asian cinema will want to get out to the Richmond Cultural Centre (7700 Minoru Gate) this evening for two Taiwanese films in Mandarin with English subtitles.
As part of the 2014 Your Kontinent International Film & Media Arts Festival, there will be a 20-minute short, "Magagahai", starting at 6:30 p.m.
It revolves around an encounter between an American cyclist and another rider of Amis descent. The Amis are one of 14 recognized aboriginal groups in Taiwan.
TransLink's Expo and Millennium SkyTrain lines are down due to a "technical issue".
Commuters have been left stranded on the tracks, forced to walk to the closest station available.
The Canada Line is functioning normally and operating extra trains. As the city approaches rush hour, TransLink is recommending that riders utilize the bus system as much as possible.
Here's a collection of photographs posted to social media by users forced to walk from the powerless trains or struggling with long wait times.[View the story "July 21 SkyTrain delays" on Storify]
In Europe, Midsummer is typically celebrated around the end of June, during the Summer Solstice. Often, games are played, music and dancing are enjoyed, and feasts celebrating the seasonal bounty are consumed.
On August 6, Campagnolo Restaurant (1020 Main Street) will host its own Midsummer Night dinner. The annual event will feature ingredients sourced that day from the neighbouring Main Street farmers market and wines from Masi Winery.
Like Halloween, when the early October fogs start to roll in, and Kanye West when he isn’t cancelling his shows the day they are supposed to happen, it’s starting to feel like it’s almost here.
Yes, we’re talking about the Squamish Valley Music Festival, taking place August 8 to 10 at the Logger Sports Grounds and Hendrickson Fields. In anticipation of the big event—headlined by Eminem, Bruno Mars, and Arcade Fire—we’re spending the next few weeks rounding up local artists who’ll be playing the open-air party, and getting them to answer some important questions.
Back in 2012, Uber kicked up quite a social media fuss in Vancouver when it got kicked to the curb by B.C.'s Passenger Transportation Board. Well, get ready for another round of #UberVanLove.
On its blog, the San Francisco-based company behind the taxi and ridesharing app, which meets opposition from the taxi industry wherever it goes, says it's "missed" Vancouver. Uber held a promotional "Ice Cream Day" on July 18, which encouraged locals to download the app and order some ice cream.
Uber's July 17 blog post states:
