Yes, you.

I was at a small convention this weekend, which hosted the Constellation Awards ceremony. This is the eighth year of the awards, and I've been the stage manager since the beginning. Here I am waiting for one of one of our presenters to finish up with a conversation so that I can take them into the ballroom and do a quick runthrough on the stage (not the other people in the photo - whoever I was waiting for, they were on the other side of the foyer):



(Actually, I might have been waiting for our host - the show was hosted by Rick Green, whom some of you might know from Prisoners of Gravity, the comedy troupe The Frantics, or his role as Bill Smith on The Red Green Show. I don't actually remember who I was waiting for, but I do remember that I was thinking, "Come on, it's only 20 minutes until the banquet and I still have to do runthroughs with three more presenters!")

Our little convention got some media notice around the world, actually, but not for a reason we would have preferred - some drunk who was not part of the convention, but was there for a wedding reception, pulled out the fire hose on the seventh floor (the floor I was on), causing a flood which flowed down the elevator shafts to the third floor electrical room, causing a fire to break out. The water continued down to the lobby, causing a partial ceiling collapse and flood, and the hotel was evacuated at 4:30 in the morning. Needless to say, we had to cancel the Sunday of the convention - which meant my Match Game hosting debut was cancelled. Apparently we made every TV channel here in Toronto as well as newspapers across the country and in the U.K. (though the Mirror mistakenly referred to us as a "science convention"). Fortunately nobody was hurt, and the guy who pulled the hose was arrested and is being charged with mischief. (I guess there's nothing more appropriate in the Criminal Code, but mischief does carry a maximum punishment of ten years in prison.)

So needless to say, we haven't actually posted the list of award winners yet. I'll have to post a link somewhere when the list goes up on our website.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I took a week's vacation and made a bit of a road trip in my new car. While out on the road, I decided to take the opportunity to go and get pictures of a couple of buildings that i had seen on TV as a kid and check out a nearby museum.

I'm uploading pics from my camera and phone tonight.

Here are just a few:



Los Angeles County Fire Station 127.

From the Los Angeles County Fire Museum in Bellflower:





And a photo of yours truly standing with the star of the show...

Apologies for the glare, but the markings are all reflective.

One last photo that I took while having lunch at a nearby bar...

I just can't decide if someone removed the front off of an actual Ward LaFrance or if someone just made a really good copy...

Love those pictures. Every time I see a fire truck, my inner child comes to life.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Hi everybody. I got back from my summer holiday yesterday, and thought I would share some crappy photos. I only had an iphone 3, and most of the night time shots got totally blown out by the stage lights, many are taken while dancing...

I saw a lot more bands than shown here, but I had to charge my phone each day, so often left it in a locker for half the day.

Day one.

First up: Motorbike, loaded with backpack, tent is in the top box, ready for leg one, 250 mile ride to Knebworth.



First night at Sonisphere, no bands on, so got drunk and went shopping, and on fairground rides.

Best named shop:



Most honest advertising award:



Best ride, basically a big 100 metre high pole with seats on the end that goes round and upside down and stuff. Great fun:



Day two.

Gary Numan:



The Prodigy:



I also say Anthrax play all of a classic album in the tent, but had my phone recharging for that.

Day three in next post.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Day three.

Babymetal, the most WTF moment of the holiday. 3 Japanese teenage girls who dance and sing to Death Metal:



Winery Dogs, that bassist is the legendary Billy Sheehan:



Anthrax main stage performance:



Frank Turner:



Deftones:



Iron Maiden, taken while dancing:



On this day I also saw Alestorm, Chas & Dave, Ghost, Carcass and Slayer.

Day four.

Devin Townsend:



Metallica:



On this day I also saw Airbourne, Therapy?, Kerbdog, Mastodon & Alice in Chains.

Day Five:

125 mile ride to Birmingham, to see Extreme.

This is Gary Cherone after leaping off the stage onto the lighting rig over the audience:



Day Six continues in the next post.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Day six.

125 mile ride to Leeds to meet up with friends and see Pearl Jam:










This was amazing, they played for 3 and a half hours, and I was 2 people from the front.

Afterwards we all went out and partied til 5am at a bar playing Pearl Jam, Beastie Boys, Nirvana, Jurassic Five and all the greats from the 90s, which was packed with Pearl Jam fans all drinking and dancing and singing.

I then rode the 125 miles back to Birmingham the next day, stayed with my parents for a few days, then another 250 miles back to Cornwall on Friday where I am now sitting I my living room typing this.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

In the Latest Purchase thread a few weeks back, I posted about buying a teak outdoor table and chair set. Well it was finally delivered yesterday. It was suppose to be delivered on June 27th but their truck broke down. Then they couldn't deliver the week of fourth of July, they only come up to the Syracuse area on Fridays.
