Because of my research on a 1976 event, people keep bringing me things from that general era. Thanks to my friend Resi for finding this in her mother’s house and bringing it to me yesterday. Not only is this Vancouver neighbourhood nearby to me (and now gentrified many times over), the map shows the Gastown Wax Museum where I worked many a summer in Vancouver, though its sign seems to be on the wrong building.

This is not a true post-mortem, since Cesar Pelli‘s 1973 Eaton’s building has not actually been demolished—and how rare it is to be able to say that in Vancouver, now one of North America’s capitals of demolition.
Shazbot. Sad loss of Robin Williams today. Thanks for the many laughs.
Dancing to Transformer inside the old Crying Room space a few weeks ago, oblivious and laughing at 4 am while singing along to:
And curtains laced with diamonds dear for you
And all the Roman Noblemen for you
And kingdom’s Christian Soldiers dear for you
And melting ice cap mountain tops for you
And knights in flaming silver robes for you
And bats that with a kiss turn prince for you.
