Your time starts now You’re a graduating student and you’ve just spent $20,000 on ‘art lessons’. Now what? Kirsten Larsen hopes that Vancouver Art Attack will be the place emerging and elite local artists come to showcase what they can do, while networking with members of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) and learning about alternatives to gallery life. But first, it’s all on the line Sept. 12, when 20 Vancouver artists will create paintings valued at a minimum of $1,000 in four hours. “It takes about a week to create a painting worth $1,000, so it is a huge challenge,” says Larsen, the event co-founder, before adding that Bill Higginson of Art Battle was tasked with finding artists from the Emily Carr, UBC, SFU, Langara, Kwantlen and surrounding talent pools, and found so many artists capable of such a feat that he already has a long list for next year. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t nervous. According to Larsen, the 20 chosen have been practising for weeks to make sure that they can plan and execute a painting worth that much at auction in such a short amount of time. “We really want to create an event where people from New York and LA come to Vancouver to see our artists,” she says of the future. Show your support by purchasing tickets at the door at the Waterfall Building (1540 W. 2nd). The live afternoon event (12-4pm) is by donation; the evening event and auction (8-11pm) is one for $50, two for $80. Note: At press time, there was a notice on co-organizer HiVE Vancouver’s website regarding a dispute about ticket proceeds; however in a phone call, Larsen says they are close to resolving the issue. Contact Larsen at 778-9895571 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Pictured: Oil painting by Andrew McDermott, president of the FCA.

Second only to Chinese New Year in cultural significance, the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival brings families and friends together to honour the full Harvest Moon. The Garden’s “Festival of Reunion” includes Chinese games, storytelling, live music, fan painting, lucky coin toss, fortune telling, wishing, and, of course, a Mooncake Cafe where visitors can sample authentic mooncake (the round shape symbolizes completeness and unity) and hot tea. Each family has its own traditions; bring a copy of a photograph or artifact along with a story or tradition from your own family’s Mid-Autumn Moon reunion for the garden’s Story Board. Sun.

No fumbling for McLachlan ballet Jean Grand-Maître gracefully brings the singer’s body of work to life By Kelsey Klassen
amed Canadian choreographer Jean Grand-Maître still gets intimidated by talent. But when you’re working with the likes of Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang, Elton John, and now Sarah McLachlan, it’s not a feeling you really expect to fade. In that way, Grand-Maître, artistic director of the Alberta Ballet, might seem like any other music lover. But the man responsible for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympics has something we don’t: The talent to elevate incredible music by reinterpreting it with dance. And he has done so with Fumbling Towards Ecstasy — a shimmering ballet set to McLachlan’s music. Who knew a Sarah McLachlan song could be more touching? .... Grand-Maître first met McLachlan during the Olympics, and knew the award-winning musician (who has sold more than 40 million recordings), would be an ideal continuation to his company’s series of portraits of living music icons. With a dancer’s perfect timing, Grand-Maître thus ensured McLachlan was able to see Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and The Drum — which he co-created with Mitchell — in the hopes that McLachlan would want to do something similar. “It was serendipity that she was in town and she came to see it, because she’s a big Joni Mitchell fan. [She] loved the dancers, loved the aesthetics and how we portrayed
this kind of music and dance. She said she’d be honoured if we actually created a ballet to her music.” Conceptually, his method centres around getting to the root of each singers’ message. “When I talked to [McLachlan], I deemed that the female ethos would be at the heart of it. With k.d. lang it was about how the Prairies shaped her voice and her musicality, with Joni it was about war and Elton was about repression and addiction. So you can see how the ballet takes a form that is close to the heart of what they are trying to achieve with their music.” Grand-Maître also spoke with other women, to better understand what guides the female life course. “Many mention betrayal, first love, first child. The themes were very strong, and that’s what Sarah was talking about. Today women have so many more choices than they had 40 years ago. It’s hard to find a spiritual balance with the choices you can make career-wise and with family.” The ballet captures the journey of a woman from young innocence to mature love, featuring all the principal women in the company — including 55-year-old ballet mistress Beverly Bagg — at different points in the one woman’s life. Puritans may raise a skeptical brow, but Grand-Maître is penning a new page in the national arts canon: “I know, at first, a lot of people look down on these projects from
Sarah McLachlan laughs during rehearsals for Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, the ballet based on her music, with choreographer Jean Grand-Maître and ballet mistress Beverly Bagg. Darren Makowichuk/QMI agency photo their ivory towers. But it has brought me into as much an aesthetic direction as working with a classical composer. [These singers] really have their own unique world to represent, and that’s why they lasted the decades in such a competitive market. You realize how brilliant they are.” And while the city is especially receptive to Grand-Maître’s neo-classical portrait ballets, the fact that Vancouver is McLachlan’s home isn’t lost on him. “That’s why we’re working very hard!” he chuckles. “And also, Vancouver knows its dance. Vancouver is the only city, outside of our home city, that has seen three of the portrait ballets. “In a way, it’s doing what these singers wanted the ballets to do, which is bring a new audience,” he continues. “That was very important for all of them. They know
how we struggle in the fine arts. And they see that often one third of the audience has never been to a dance performance — they’re music fans. That’s really a good and healthy project, I think, for the ballet world.” But really, he’s just a big fan, too. “It’s about finding one thing that reconnects us to their music. Like a little umbilical cord that really makes us feel their music in a new way, but at the same time is true to who they are as musicians. You feel that they do open their diary a bit and let us into their creative thinking.” McLachlan is planning to attend the Vancouver premier. Presented by Ballet BC, Alberta Ballet in Fumbling Towards Ecstasy runs Nov. 14-16 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Tickets range from $40-$99; BalletBC.com

A kinky comedy set on the casting couch There’s very little that Vanda (Lindsey Angell) won’t do to land the lead in Venus in Fur, David Ives’ Broadway hit that gets its name from the book that inspired the term masochism. Set during her audition with the play’s demanding writer-director (Vincent Gale), “the role-playing turns into an erotically charged game, shifting the power dynamics and blurring the line between fantasy and reality.” Hmm… wonder if the cast and crew from 50 Shades of Grey will drop by for a little “research” before filming starts in Vancouver.

THE HABIT OF ART: Alan Bennett’s
t was a pivotal scene in The X-Files’ pilot episode, even if viewers didn’t realize it at the time. The setting: a non-descript office in a government building. A man in his mid-fifties leans against a filing cabinet. Smoke from his cigarette swirls around him as his two colleagues brief a young FBI agent about her new partner, a brilliant crackpot named Fox Mulder. The skulking man doesn’t utter a word, but his cloud of smoke and unsettling stare establish him as the dominant presence in the room. This mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man — as he came to be known — would emerge as the number one baddie on the paranormal series over the course of its nine seasons (five of which were shot right here in the 604). Nearly every conspiracy, cover-up, and bait-and-switch led back to the remorseless Cigarette Smoking Man. His heinousness earned him a prime spot at #21 on TV Guide’s 2013 list of the 60 nastiest villains in TV history (J.R. Ewing took the top position). That’s why it often comes as a shock to X-Files fans, who celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary this week, that the thespian who breathed life into the Cigarette Smoking Man — Vancouver-based actor William B. Davis — is not only a goodhumoured, charming, non-smoking gent, but a staunch skeptic to boot. “I certainly don’t believe in UFOs or aliens or the paranormal world,” said Davis in a recent phone interview. Equally surprising to fans is the fact that, long before he was keeping David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully from the truth out there, Davis was a celebrated theatre director who helmed plays featuring legends such as Maggie Smith, Albert Finney, Derek Jacobi, Donald Sutherland, and Jackie Burroughs. Even today, he makes time for directing projects that pique his interest, such as United Players’ The Habit of Art, which runs at the Jericho Arts Centre until September 29. “People did almost look at me as if I was born at age 55,” he said, laughing. “They wondered, ‘What had he done before that? How on Earth did he end up on The X-Files?’” The answers to both questions and more can be found in Davis’ recently published memoir, Where There’s Smoke…: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man. Davis covers decades of territory in 290 pages: growing up in a wealthy family in 1940s Toronto; breaking into show biz via CBC radio plays; directing turns on Canadian and British stages; several
critically acclaimed play imagines a reunion between estranged collaborators W.H. Auden and Benjamin Britten. Sept. 6-29. $16$20 at www.unitedplayers.com.

I can’t imagine what life was like for [Duchovny] and [Anderson] during the heyday of the show. They couldn’t walk down the street”) Putting pen to paper forced Davis, 75, to reflect on a life that has pulled him in a multitude of directions. “It’s like being on a time machine,” said Davis, who currently recurs as future Alec Sadler on Showcase’s time travel procedural Continuum. “When writing a memoir, one has to somehow imaginatively go back to where one was in the 1940s and recreate it for oneself.” Given the memoir’s scope and conversational tone, you don’t have to be a theatre connoisseur — or even an X-Files-phile — to enjoy it. “My brother was funny because he said, ‘Wow, when did you learn to write?’ I don’t think he’s ever seen The X-Files, but he said he really liked that whole section about the show,” said Davis. “And it’s a social history. The world has changed in my lifetime, and the changes are remarkable.”

Sleepless at the Rio VIFF’s Altered States brings back midnight screenings (and a few tortured dreams) By Martha Perkins
f there’s a spate of “I had insomnia last night” excuses for arriving late to work during the Vancouver International Film Festival, blame it on Curtis Woloschuk. WE Vancouver’s film reviewer is in charge of Altered States, a series of seven movies that will be screened at midnight at the Rio Theatre. Not only do you have to stay up late to watch them, but their dark content might also make you wary of turning out the lights when you finally make it home to bed. As VIFF says, “Your dreams may never be the same.” The seven films are: • Willow Creek — Sasquatch lurks in all our nightmares; do not go into the woods today (Sept. 27) • A Field in England — a genre-defying, “magic mushroom-fueled vision of the English Civil War” (Sept. 28) • Borgman — it falls under the headings sci-fi and horror, sex and eroticism, thrills and suspense. Do you need a plot line? (Oct. 4)
ANTIQUE SHOW Saturday Sept. 14th Vendors Wanted! Tables
• Big Bad Wolves — a dark comedy revenge film with “heady mix of brutality, merciless black comedy and potent subtext” (Oct. 5) • Halley — a dead man can no longer hide the fact that his body is decaying; “a melancholic, meditative body-horror movie.” (Oct. 6) • XL — an alcoholic Icelandic politician decides to go on one last bender before checking into rehab (Oct. 10) • Antisocial — chaos reigns when something sinister goes viral through social media (Oct. 11) “I saw Altered States on TV at midnight when I was about 11, and it was the first movie that messed with my head,” Woloschuk says of why the series’ title makes a nod to Ken Russell’s 1980 film. VIFF used to have late-night screenings but that was about a decade ago. With the addition of the Rio Theatre as a venue this year, it seemed the perfect time to resurrect midnight screenings. “People who stay up for midnight movies love to have the communal feeling of watching a movie together,” Woloschuk says. “They get to experience what everyone else is feeling at the same time.” Let’s just hope they don’t all share the same bad dreams afterwards. As well as screening at 11:30pm at the Rio as part of Altered States, the movies are also screened at other times and locations. Go to VIFF.org for details.

he Burnaby Art Gallery is home to Storms and Bright Skies: Three Centuries of Dutch Landscapes, a touring exhibition of works from the National Gallery of Canada. The 65 works on paper from the Ottawa gallery will include several 17th century etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn, the prolific Dutch master believed to have produced upwards of 600 paintings and 2,000 etchings and drawings. The National Gallery show will be joined concurrently by an exhibit of 17 works titled Inner Realms: Dutch Portraits from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, which features a self-portrait of Rembrandt and one he did of his wife Saskia. The two shows also feature works by other Dutch masters including Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Adriaen van Ostade, and Cornelis Janssens van Ceulen. The oldest works are two pen and ink drawings — “Bird Catchers with Nets” and “Bird Catchers with an Owl Decoy” — by Hans Bols dating from 1582. “This is a real first; it’s almost like a mini blockbuster,” says BAG assistant curator Jennifer Cane. “Viewing works from 300 or 400 years before our time, I think it’s really insightful. I was definitely struck by the power of the landscapes that are presented. As far as the portraiture exhibition, it’s really humbling to view the oil portraits of individuals from all walks of Dutch society who are now long gone.” Admission to the shows, as with all BAG exhibitions, will be by donation. Go to BurnabyArtGallery.ca for details.

rent Comber is finally back where it all started. Then a new carver somewhat unsure of his work, he held his first show at VanDusen Garden on a rainy day 19 years ago. While presenting his work to passersby he noticed an elderly woman sitting on a bench he designed. “I thought, ‘Oh no she’s going to get a sliver’ and this was my first show,” Comber recalls with a laugh in his studio at the base of Second Narrows Bridge. But her visit turned out to be much more profound. Running her hand along the bench, she told him the wood he uses brings back fond memories of her late grandfather who once took her on trips to the beach. It turns out Comber’s grandfather used to drive street cars full of workers to the shipyards, and the wood used for the bench was salvaged from the area. “I realized I’m not the only one who has a powerful connection to this material,” he says of the day that solidified his career. This past summer, Comber showed his work for the second time at VanDusen Garden. Pale Shadows is part of the botanical garden’s Touch Wood exhibit on until Sept. 30. He is also showing his Nine Sentinels, a circle of nine-inch maple forms and 60-inch illuminated Shattered Spheres. Comber says humans can relate to
wood in ways they can’t with other materials. “Feel the warmth. It’s different than stone,” he says, placing his hand on a sphere of wood in the centre of his studio. “We can count the rings and see our own mortality in it. It relates to our own lifespan.” His aesthetic interpretation of the Pacific Northwest and its natural materials can be seen in hotels, restaurants, office buildings and retail stores in Ireland, Japan, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Seattle and Vancouver, to name a few. In 2011, he received the BC Creative Achievement Award and his sculpture Serene was purchased by Tokyo’s Design Association and presented to the prime minister of Japan. He then toured the country to help promote environmental consciousness. He designed “Nightswimming” for SFU’s UniverCity childcare centre’s one-year anniversary. He was recently named Western Living’s Furniture Designer of the Year and his new dining table series will be featured at IDSWest at the Vancouver Convention Centre Sept. 19 to 22. To Comber, the forest is experienced differently by each person so he expects everyone to get something different out of his artwork. “I know how the forest makes me feel, it’s very personal,” he says, looking down at a disk made of smaller pieces of wood. “I hope people can make their own connections with Pale Shadows and create their own stories from it.”
Two lanes will be open in each direction for traffic, and you may experience traffic delays during construction. Please use alternate routes. To expedite the construction process, City crews will work primarily from Monday to Friday between the hours of 7 am and 6 pm and the occasional weekend. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained throughout construction. FOR MORE INFORMATION: Phone 3-1-1 TTY 7-1-1 Outside of Vancouver: 604-873-7000 Visit: vancouver.ca/roadwork

Granville Street Ken Hsieh conducts the “Musical Symphony in Downtown Vancouver” as part of Taiwanfest. Asian Canadian Special Events Assoc. photo
Turning a street into a community
here were a lot of great moments at this year’s TaiwanFest, but for the directing manager of the event, there was one that stood out. “When conductor Ken Hseih brought out the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra with a Taiwanese percussion group and ballet dancers,” Charlie Wu says, “that kind of thing inspires me. You have these groups playing very different types of music and they performed together for the first time. I think that helps build community.” It’s building community that is a big mandate of Tai-
wanFest and it’s also a big focus of VIVA Vancouver, which blocks off Granville Street every weekend for the summers months, allowing events like TaiwanFest be held in the central area. “We saw a lot of people come down this year… I think more than previous years,” says Charles Gauthier, president and CEO of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Area (DVBIA), which works with the city to hold VIVA Granville. “I think a lot of that had to do with the fantastic weather we had, but also because of the great programming and events that took place this year. “It’s not just about closing the street and not having any

motorized vehicles on it; it’s really about fostering the arts community and benefitting local businesses,” he adds. Along with TaiwanFest, which wrapped up the VIVA season, Latincouver, the HUB Bike Rodeo, Five Hole for Food and the International Busker Festival energized the street this summer. Programming also included HULA!, an interactive installation with 200 hula hoops, and Upcycled Urbanism, a participatory project that allowed people to transform the street using salvaged polystyrene blocks. “VIVA on Granville Street is really a great incubator for local community and arts groups to try something different,” Gauthier explains. “We have such a vibrant arts community that covers everything — visual arts, performing arts and everything else. We need to give these people the opportunity to experiment, to try different things and express themselves and that’s what this does.” But VIVA isn’t limited to Granville Street with its reprogramming of public spaces, changing the functionality of spots all around the city. “VIVA is an important part of optimizing our public spaces and transforming our streets into people places,” says Karyn Magnusson, director of Street Use at the City of Vancouver. “We’re very proud of what the VIVA team has accomplished with the diversity of spaces and programing that reaches so many neighbourhoods in our city. “Granville Street, the street murals in Marpole, the new farmers market in Yaletown, the new parklets and of course the fantastic rainbow crosswalks and pedestrian plaza at Bute and Robson are all examples of what the team has accomplished by working with strategic partners like many of our BIAs and Translink.” While VIVA Granville wrapped up on the Labour Day weekend with TaiwainFest, VIVA will continue into the fall with two more murals in Marpole later this month, the new farmers’ market in Yaletown on Mainland Street until the end of September, the much-Instagrammed rainbow crosswalks on Davie and Bute, and installing more public seating “parklet” spots (Magnusson says businesses in Kitsilano, Commercial Drive, Yaletown, downtown and Mount Pleasant have applied to design and install their own unique seating installations in on-street parking spaces.) Wu says that since partnering with VIVA Granville four years ago, they have noticed an increase in TaiwainFest attendees. “It’s been great,” he says. “The location is a more accessible space and we are seeing more people noticing us. This location provides an opportunity for us to share (the Taiwanese culture) with Vancouverites and also provides our community to learn about the downtown culture as well — there are people coming to the festival who would never come downtown if it wasn’t for TaiwanFest.”

Waterside living in Yaletown with Pacific Point By Kerry Vital
Yaletown is one of Vancouver’s most popular and vibrant neighbourhoods, with some of the best shopping, dining and recreation in the city. Now Bosa Development is staking its claim in the area with Pacific Point, a former rental building that Nat Bosa purchased and turned into luxury condominiums. “Buyers know they are going to get quality and Nat Bosa’s
value assurance backing the project,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Bosa Development. Every suite has been completely renovated, with new appliances, new decor and new plumbing. “It’s rare that Nat Bosa puts his name to something,” says George Wong of Magnum Projects. “This is one of those rare opportunities. This is the first thing that has caught his eye in a long time ... he fell in love with the location.” There are 214 condos in the building, ranging from 450
to 1,680 square feet. The kitchens feature a quartz-slab backsplash, polished quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances, complemented by undercabinet task lighting, a contemporary undermount sink and imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers, which also appears in the bathrooms. Laminate wood flooring is included throughout most of the CONTINUED INSIDE

There is no shortage of things to do in Vancouver, from shopping on Robson Street, above, or Main Street, bottom right, cycling on the Stanley Park SeaWall, top right, or going for a swim in the pool at Kitsilano Beach, middle right.
Vancouver tops for living and playing By Kerry Vital
Vancouver was recently voted as one of the top three most livable cities in the world, and it’s not hard to see why. With tons of amazing restaurants, gorgeous scenery, plenty of opportunities for shopping and beautiful homes, Vancouver truly has everything you can possibly imagine. One of Vancouver’s most well-known landmarks is Stanley Park, the 400-hectare park that recently celebrated its 125th birthday and has been designated a national historic site. With it’s nearly nine kilometres
of SeaWall, several beaches and acres upon acres of green space, Stanley Park is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. It also holds several dining spots, the Vancouver Aquarium, Malkin Bowl, a pitch-and-putt golf course, a pool and a water spray park, among other attractions. If indoor pursuits are more your forte, you’ll find plenty to love in Vancouver with its array of arts and cultural opportunities. From the Queen Elizabeth Theatre to the Vancouver Art Gallery to the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology, you’ll find plenty of options for whatever you’re in the mood for. Sports fans aren’t left out either with the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena or the B.C. Lions or Vancouver Whitecaps at B.C. Place. Perhaps some fine dining is on the menu; a wish that Vancouver has no problem fulfilling. Picking a great restaurant can be as easy as choosing a neighbourhood and taking a walk around. You may find your new favourite dining spot completely by accident.
Speaking of neighbourhoods, each one has its own style. Kitsilano, with its trendy shops, dining and the famous Kits Beach, is a haven for healthy living. Among the homes here is Kits360, a condominium development that gives residents access to every amenity that Kits has to offer along with gorgeous homes. If sophisticated living is what you crave, you’ll find the perfect home at Bosa Development’s Pacific Point in Yaletown. Pacific Point has gorgeous views of False Creek and downtown Vancouver, making it a spectacular place to live if you want to take advantage of the vibrant lifestyle in the neighbourhood. When you need a bit of retail therapy, you’ll find plenty of places to exercise your credit card. From Granville Island with its eclectic mix of independent shops and the Public Market to the trendy South Granville area to Robson Street and its mix of high-end and budget shops, including the brand-new Canadian flagship Victoria’s Secret store, there are a variety of options for any taste.

man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” This has never been more true with the recent trend to “upcycle”, or turn something that may no longer be useful into something new. “Upcycling is the act of taking an unused item and literally turning it into an item you will use,” says Amber Bosma, marketing manager for UsedEverywhere.com. “Essentially you take something that’s no longer wanted or needed and turn it into something fabulous.” Almost anything can be upcycled, from old furniture to clothing to construction downtown materials. “I think the most popular upcycle I’ve seen lately involves pallets,” says Bosma. “I’ve seen pallets turned into garden swings, into bed frames and into beautiful coffee tables!” Other creative projects include turning old clothing into pillows (or a dog bed for man or woman’s best friends perhaps?), making jars into lanterns or candleholders or updating an old mirror with a new frame or paint. “That bulky old television cabinet turns into a kid’s play kitchen,” suggests Bosma. “The inherited grandfather clock you don’t like but want to keep becomes a stylish shelf.” If craft projects fill your heart with dread
or conjure up some bad memories of school projects, you don’t need to worry. Upcyling doesn’t need to be complicated and it doesn’t have to require unlimited creativity. “Use the Internet to follow upcycling blogs for inspiration,” Bosma says. “For example, the UsedEverywhere.com blog has an upcycling series that shows you items that can be found inexpensively or even for free on our websites and then offers several upcycling options for that item.” Pintrest and Facebook are also a great source for upcycling ideas. “Choose good quality items to upcycle,” says Bosma. “The item itself may be ugly, but what’s important is the quality of the material. An upcycle can be as simple as a lick of paint and new handles or as complicated as your imagination allows.” Upcycled items are more than just unique; they’re also much kinder to the environment. “Why throw it away when it can be reused and given a new lease on life?” says Bosma. “If you love unique pieces of furniture then upcycling is the way to go, plus you get to add your own flair if it’s a do-ityourself project. And best of all, if you love to bag a bargain, upcycling your own items is much cheaper than buying new.” Suddenly spending weekends scouring garage sales sounds much more appealing! You never know what treasures you’ll find or what will inspire your next project.

Police on the watch for distracted drivers Third highest cause of fatal crashes kills 31 a year in Lower Mainland By Jeff Nagel
olice and ICBC are launching a month-long campaign to deter distracted driving, the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in the province after speed and impaired driving. In the Lower Mainland, driver distraction is blamed as a factor in 31 deaths a year and in 91 fatalities province-wide. Transportation ministry officials estimate drivers are four times likelier to crash when talking on a hand-held phone while driving and 23 times more likely to be in a crash if texting.
Handing out $167 fines will be stepped up throughout September, according to police. “Driving is a complex task that requires your full attention,” ICBC interim president Mark Blucher said. “When you’re distracted behind the wheel your reaction time is significantly reduced. Distracted driving is a common cause of rear-end crashes and injuries — there is no safe following distance when your mind is not on the road.” A 2012 survey for ICBC found BC motorists consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving, yet 40 per cent of those who own cellphones admit they’ve used a hand-held phone while driving. ICBC says its statistics count use of communications or video equipment among the sources of driver distraction, along with driver inattention and other sources of internal or external distraction.

ryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are important to Breaking Bad, but Vince Gilligan’s the godfather. Every time his cast — whether it’s the lead Cranston or the suddenly popular Dean Norris (who plays Hank) — talks about Vince Gilligan the show, they can’t stop from gushing about Gilligan’s scripts, his ideas, and the disastrously brilliant turns the show takes.
So, Vancouverites, consider yourselves lucky. Gilligan will be attending the 2013 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) as a member of the event’s Film and TV Forum on Friday, Sept. 27 – just two days before his series’s finale. Gilligan till take the stage at The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts for his favourite segment, which is titled “One Last Cook” (brilliant, by the way). Prior to his appearance, the audience will get to screen his own favourite episode of the series. Tickets are $25 each and available online from Forum.VIFF.org.

eptember 8 to 15 is the fourth annual Farmers’ Appreciation Week which celebrates local food and farmers, and addresses issues facing the local food system. BC farmers’ markets are hosting activities from farm tours to antique farm equipment displays in celebration. According to the 2011 Canadian Census of Agriculture, the average age of farmers in BC is higher than the national average. As they get older, the total number of farmers is decreasing. That’s why the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets is emphasizing the need to support young farmers since they are the future to sustaining an “eat local, buy local” food moment and system. Only five per cent of the land in BC is appropriate for farming and only one per cent of this represents the best soil. Our farmers produce almost half of the food we eat in BC and resources and farmland are scarce. Farmers produce quality products at affordable prices using sustainable practices, and they rely on public support from chefs and consumers. They supply farm-to-table restaurants and offer Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) — a model where consumers purchase a share of the anticipated harvest in advance, to help farmers early in the season with start-up costs. In return shareholders get weekly supplies of fresh produce. Here are just a few of the many farms selling quality produce at local farmers’ markets:
Glorious Organics It is a cooperatively owned and operated farming collective in Aldergrove. They offer Certified Organic salad greens (over 30 kinds), vegetables, herbs, edible flowers and some fruits. Where to try: Burdock & Co., The Farmer’s Apprentice, West, Seasonal Restaurant 56 and more Where to buy: Under the name of Organic Farm Connection find them at the Langley Farmers Market on Wednesdays, at the Trout Lake Farmers Market on Saturdays, and at the and Kitsilano Farmers Market on Sundays.

Master of Wine Barbara Philip at the sneak peak of the 2010 French Bordeaux release. Kurtis Kolt photo
y friend Barbara Philip, a locally celebrated Master of Wine, cheerily greeted me at the door of a Farimont Pacific Rim ballroom in what’s become a much-anticipated annual event in the local wine scene. The 2010 French Bordeaux release will be occurring in the BC Liquor Stores’ Signature Stores throughout British Columbia on September 28 and the Fairmont occasion was to give the wine trade a sneak peek of what will be on offer. As the European wine buyer for BC Liquor Stores, these wines are the fruits of her Bordeaux travels, tasting and research two years ago; purchasing ‘en primeur,’ when they were still in barrel. Before I pass along my recommendations, many of which Barb gave me a personal ‘heads-up’ on, here’s what she has to say about these lovely wines composed mainly of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that are heading our way. “In 2010, for the second vintage in a row, the region of Bordeaux produced spectacular wines. Since being selected for BC Liquor Stores more than two years ago, wines for the 2010 release have been maturing in Châteaux cellars. Here, the tannins have softened, flavours have become more complex and the wines, overall, have become more approachable. Like the excellent 2009s that preceded them, the 2010 Bordeaux have concentrated flavours and tannins that are both bold and ripe. Generally, the international wine trade and journalists describe the 2010 as more ‘classic’, ‘restrained’ and ‘longlived.’” Of course, it’d be easy to highly recommend the big classics, Château Mouton Rothschild and such, which run $1,800 per bottle. The bigger challenge for Barb as a buyer, and myself as a writer, is to find those gems with price-points that are a little more, ahem, ‘realistic.’ Here’s what I got:

50 Shades will film in Vancouver in November
ith each passing day, Vancouver’s film industry nets another fish. First, it was World of Warcraft. Then, last Wednesday, it was 50 Shades of Grey, which announced it would begin filming in VanCity on Nov. 5. The news came just one day after the film’s two leads were announced. Sons of Anarchy and Undeclared star Charlie Hunnam will play Christian Grey, while Dakota Johnson (The Social Network, Ben and Kate) will play Anastasia Steele. The film is based on E.L. James’s wildly popular erotic trilogy. 50 Shades of Grey is one of the best-selling books of all-time (over 70,000,000 sales), as well as a cultural phenomenon.
How to look like a supermodel Shop Talk
by Kelsey Klassen
n last week’s Shop Talk, Victoria’s Secret model Lindsay Ellingson answered questions for Vancouver men. This week, we get caught up on the girlier goings-ons in her pretty little head. While very much in ‘spokesmodel’ mode, Ellingson was down-to-earth, well-spoken and seemed genuinely excited by the buzz surrounding the opening of the Robson Street store. Here’s what she had to say about:
Makeup: “All of the Angels and makeup artists that I work with swear by this lipliner — it’s made by Victoria’s Secret and it’s called ‘Spice It up’. It’s kind of like a nudie, perfect colour for any lip colour. And you can actually extend the line of your lip to make your lips more voluptuous, which is a trick that we do on camera.”
Hair: “I recently had a hair stylist take five minutes to do my hair. He braided it while I was getting hair and makeup done. He did two braids, put a little salt spray in it, and then took it out. It was…incredible. That was it! Normally I’m in the hair chair for an hour of them curling, so it was easy. Victoria’s Secret has a beach wave spray that does the trick.”
Image: “I think that Victoria’s Secret is all about powerful, confident, sexy, beautiful women, what all women want to be. As a whole, when you buy the lingerie or any of the products, they want you to feel amazing; it’s not just what you look like. So us, as Angels, represent that in our pictures and our personalities and our attitudes.” Trends: “We have some really rich colours for fall. A bright purple, champagne and neon red, so very beautiful colours. And also pretty accents like lace, bows, keyholes. What I love is that prints are back in style, so there’s leopard print and our iconic stripe print. I like to show off my Victoria’s Secret bras a little bit, like under a silk button-down shirt you could leave a button undone, just so you show a peak of the lace or the print. It’s tasteful, beautiful and sexy.” Vancouver store: “Oh, it’s amazing! I’ve never seen a Victoria’s Secret store like that. I was really amazed by the mirrored grand staircase that led up to the floor-toceiling video screens. It was playing our fashion shows, and that was super cool! I’ve never seen myself that big.” VictoriasSecret.com

A passion for the Dr. Peter Centre Shirley Young continues her son’s legacy to end HIV By Martha Perkins
here is a responsibility that comes with being lucky enough to get old. “Life is so precious,” says 80-year-old Shirley Young. “When we’re blessed [not to die at a young age], it’s criminal not to embrace everything. I believe in gratitude. People should go through life with gratitude for what they have, not thinking about what they don’t have.” Such a philosophy was born out of loss. Her son, the late Dr. Peter Jepson-Young, was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 1985. He shared his story, and made the AIDS crisis more personal, through the Dr. Peter Diaries on CBC; his last diary entry was two weeks before he died in 1992. Instead of concentrating on what was denied to her son because of AIDS, Shirley Young and her husband Bob focus on what Peter was able to achieve both during his illness and long after his death through the Dr. Peter Centre. “Medicine was really his passion and he didn’t get to practise,” Mrs. Young says, noting that Peter became ill shortly after getting his medical degree. “I like to think of the Dr. Peter Centre as his practice and the people come there for his energy and his healing. “It just like a magical story. What gives Bob and I comfort is we think Peter had a mission.” This September is the 10th anniversary of the stand-alone centre, which is kitty corner to the back end of St. Paul’s Hospital on Comox. Built with contributions from the City of Vancouver, province of British Columbia and countless private and corporate donations, the centre includes 24
Videos chronicle Vancouver’s fight against HIV/AIDS
n July, AIDS Vancouver released a video a day on 3030.AIDSVancouver.org to chronicle how devastating HIV/AIDS has been and the tremendous effortse by Vancouverites to combat its toll over the past 30 years. The video on the Dr. Peter Centre is the year 2003. “We’re at a tremendous point at the history of AIDS,” Maxine Davis says in the video. “Our mission was to provide care for people living with HIV/ AIDS. We are now moving towards a statement which is, ‘The Dr. Peter Centre is providing care to end HIV.’ “We know if we can engage this vulnerable population in healthcare, it is literally helping turn off the tap. What the Dr. Peter Centre offers is that we walk with people in their suffering.”
Every Wednesday, Dr. Peter’s mother, Shirley Young, volunteers at the Dr. Peter Centre. She is “the heart of the place.” Kathryn Sutton photo residential suites plus a seven-day-a-week drop-in and support programs for 400 members. “The vast majority of individuals living with HIV do not need the Dr. Peter Centre,” says Maxine Davis, the centre’s executive director. “They are
• BOTOX® • Aesthetic Volume Replacement
(Lips, Cheeks, Nose, Jaw Line)
• Clear & Brilliant • CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing (Acne Scar Removal)
• CoolSculpting® (Body Shaping)
• IPL Photorejuvenation • Laser Hair Removal • Thermage® Skin Tightening • Venus Freeze Skin Tightening • Acne Treatments
self-care capable and have a network of support. The Dr. Peter Centre is geared towards supporting individuals who do not have that support. We’re creating a fairness about life. This ensures that individuals have an opportunity to be as healthy as possible and through that you create a fairer society.” Several years ago, Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside was deemed a public health emergency. New infection rates for HIV were startlingly high. A nurse was sent onto the streets to ask people why they weren’t taking their medication. She was so struck by a common theme that she titled her report “All I Want is Food to Eat, A Roof Over My Head and Somebody to Give a Damn.” Fulfilling that trilogy of needs is, to a great extent, what’s made the Dr. Peter Centre such a respected, trusted and valued resource. By helping people with all of their needs, not just their medical ones, it’s played a big role in reducing the number of new cases of HIV in British Columbia to 200 a year, down from 900 a year when it first opened its doors. “People living with HIV have needs greater than survival,” says Shirley, who volunteers every Wednesday morning by serving breakfast at the centre. “You might survive but you’ll have a broken spirit if you don’t have
someone who gives a damn. I hear their stories and say, ‘There but for the grace of God....’ We’re all very fragile and it wouldn’t take a lot in our lives to fall apart.” She admires the staff tremendously. They are without judgement and know that part of their role is just being there, to provide care and support. “They provide such a loving environment.” (For her part, Davis says Shirley “is the heart of the place. The clients adore her and are grateful for her presences.”) A relatively new feature of the centre is enhanced supportive housing within close walking distance of the centre. Support and medical care is provided to people who perhaps are in transition from the 24-hour care at the centre or in hospital. Other features include art therapy, music therapy and a nutrient-rich food program. Although fundraising initiatives to support programming are ongoing, the annual Passions gala is the primary fundraising event for the centre. This year’s evening features 24 chefs trying to outdo one another on Sun., Sept. 15 at the centre. Tickets are $225 for general admission; $300 includes a champagne reception. Go to DrPeter.org to buy tickets or to discover ways you can volunteer and share your own passions.

Rules of Play, Details and
With all due respect Hi Mr. Zen Traveller (â€œBikes are here to stay,â€? Rants, Aug. 29) I am a cyclist and felt obliged to chime in to show that not all of us two-wheelers are as oblivious to the context of our actions as you seem to be. A lot of we cyclists seem to feel as you do, that thereâ€™s no harm in running a red light or two and I can certainly empathize with them as the damage a cyclist can do with his or her vehicle is far less than what a driver is capable of with theirs and thus we should be given a free pass on â€œlittleâ€? things like running stop signs. I mean, youâ€™re not hurting anybody so whatâ€™s the big deal? The problem is that it very well may not be a big deal to you but drivers have a lot to worry about on the road. Theyâ€™re driving what can easily become killing machines if they allow their attention to lapse or cut too many corners. I believe their distaste for your behaviour on the road is born out of a frustration for not seeing their fellow road users take the same amount of care. In other words, theyâ€™re taking more care for your safety than you are. If weâ€™re going to share the same space, itâ€™s not unreasonable to expect that we follow the same rules to the best of our ability. It should be more about respect for your fellow human beings that we all abide by the same rules rather than whoâ€™s vehicle is likely to kill somebody. Sivak
The sound of seagulls when I wake up in the morning reminds me how lucky I am to be living so close to the ocean... and itâ€™s a nice antidote to the far more intrusive sounds of the (admittedly necessary) emergency service sirens and those pathetic and juvenile motor-bikers who seem to want to attract attention to themselves (â€œWow! He must be a REAL man!â€?) with their ridiculously loud exhausts. Roger
Bump this sticker Have you seen these stickers that some people put over no-smoking signs that say â€œFascism is healthier than smokingâ€?? I assume this â€˜argumentâ€™ is based on the fact that while fascist ideology in action has killed millions of people, smoking kills millions each year, and thus, cumulatively has killed many more people than fascism. When did this become an either-or argument? Both have killed millions. Both suck. End of argument. Anonymous

Horror sequel falls flat INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2
Starring Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne Directed by James Wan Fresh from this summer’s horror hit The Conjuring, director James Wan has his work cut out for him in the follow up to 2010’s massively successful Insidious; unfortunately it appears this sequel was an afterthought lacking in imagination and precision. Insidious: Chapter 2 picks up immediately after the final events of the first installment as the Lambert family piece their lives back together again. They soon discover a mysterious childhood secret surrounding Josh’s (Patrick Wilson) upbringing has left them dangerously connected to the spirit realm. Whatever refreshing filmmaking techniques that made Insidious so memorable are sadly lacking here as the plot meanders without any real tension or
genuine thrills. Wilson does a credible job as he wrestles with an otherworldly force inside his own body and Byrne once again proves an effective maternal figure still coming to grips with the family curse. Unfortunately, veteran actress Lin Shaye and 12-year old Ty Simpkins, who stole all his scenes in Iron Man 3, are left with nothing to do thanks to a convoluted script and plodding narrative. The comic Thor relief of Angus Sampson and writer Diakow Leigh Whannell’s ‘ghostbuster’ characters also gets tiresome very quickly this time. Wan has ditched any moody atmosphere in favour of shaky action scenes that merely halt the storytelling. At times, Insidious: Chapter 2 feels like a TV movie as it lumbers towards the inevitable setup for a third film; sadly the appetite for another installment after this bland exercise will have waned significantly.

Free Will Astrology #Z3PC#SF[TOZrWeek of September 12 ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19): “A good story should make you laugh, and a moment later break your heart,” wrote Chuck Palahniuk in his book Stranger Than Fiction. From what I can tell, Aries, the sequence is the reverse for you. In your story, the disruption has already happened. Next comes the part where you laugh. It may be a sardonic chuckle at first, as you become aware of the illusions you had been under before the jolt exposed them. Eventually I expect you will be giggling and gleeful, eternally grateful for the tricky luck that freed you to pursue a more complete version of your fondest dream. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20): Taurus musician David Byrne was asked by an interviewer to compose a seven-word autobiography. In response, he came up with 10 words: “unfinished, unprocessed, uncertain, unknown, unadorned, underarms, underpants, unfrozen, unsettled, unfussy.” The coming days would be an excellent time for you to carry out similar assignments. I’d love to see you express the essential truth about yourself in bold and playful ways. I will also be happy if you make it clear that even though you’re a work-in-progress, you have a succinct understanding of what you need and who you are becoming. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20): The French word sillage means “wake,” like the trail created behind a boat as it zips through water. In English, it refers to the fragrance that remains in the air after a person wearing perfume or cologne passes by. For our purposes, we will expand the definition to include any influences and impressions left behind by a powerful presence who has exited the scene. In my astrological opinion, Gemini, sillage is a key theme for you to monitor in the coming days. Be alert for it. Study it. It will be a source of information that helps you make good decisions.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22): “Cataglottism” is a rarely used English word that has the same meaning as French kissing — engaging in liberal use of the tongue as you make out. But I don’t recommend that you incorporate such an inelegant, guttural term into your vocabulary. Imagine yourself thinking, while in the midst of French kissing, that what you’re doing is “cataglottism.” Your pleasure would probably be diminished. This truth applies in a broader sense, too. The language you use to frame your experience has a dramatic impact on how it all unfolds. The coming week will be an excellent time to experiment with this principle. See if you can increase your levels of joy and grace by describing what’s happening to you with beautiful and positive words. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22): This is Correct Your First Impressions Week. It’s a perfect time for you to re-evaluate any of your beliefs that are based on mistaken facts or superficial perceptions. Are you open to the possibility that you might have jumped to unwarranted conclusions? Are you willing to question certainties that hardened in you after just a brief exposure to complicated processes? During Correct Your First Impressions Week, humble examination of your fixed prejudices is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. P.S. This is a good time to re-connect with a person you have unjustly judged as unworthy of you. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): This is a good time to free yourself from a curse that an immature soul placed on you once upon a time. I’m not talking about a literal spell cast by a master of the dark arts. Rather, I’m referring to an abusive accusation that was heaped on you, perhaps inadvertently, by a careless person whose own pain made them stupid. As I evaluate the astrological omens, I conclude that you now have the power to dissolve this curse all by yourself. You don’t need a wizard or a witch to handle it for you. Follow your intuition for clues on how to proceed. Here’s a suggestion to stimulate your imagination: Visualize the curse as a

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): The cosmos hereby grants you poetic licence to be brazen in your craving for the best and brightest experiences, to be uninhibited in feeding your obsessions and making them work for you, to be shameless as you pursue exactly and only what you really, really want more than anything else. This is a limited time offer, although it may be extended if you pounce eagerly and take full advantage. For best results, suspend your pursuit of trivial wishes and purge yourself of your bitchy complaints about life. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21): At the last minute, Elsa Oliver impulsively cancelled her vacation to New York. She had a hunch that something exciting would happen if instead she stayed at her home in England. A few hours later, she got a message inviting her to be a contestant on the UK television show Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? In the days and weeks that followed, she won the equivalent of $100,000. I’m not predicting anything quite as dramatic for you, Sagittarius. But I do suspect that good luck is lurking in unexpected places, and to gather it in you may have to trust your intuition, stay alert for late-breaking shifts in fate, and be willing

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19): “The only thing standing between you and your goal,” writes American author Jordan Belfort, “is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.” I don’t entirely agree with that idea. There may be other obstacles over which you have little control. But the bullshit story is often more than half the problem. So that’s the bad news, Capricorn. The good news is that right now is a magic moment in your destiny when you have more power than usual to free yourself of your own personal bullshit story. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18): Is the truth a clear, bright, shiny treasure, like a big diamond glittering in the sunlight? Does it have an objective existence that’s independent of our feelings about it? Or is the truth a fuzzy, convoluted thing that resembles a stream of smoke snaking through an underground cavern? Does it have a different meaning for every mind that seeks to grasp it? The answer, of course, is: both. Sometimes the truth is a glittering diamond and at other times it’s a stream of smoke. But for you right now, Aquarius, the truth is the latter. You must have a high tolerance for ambiguity as you cultivate your relationship with it. It’s more likely to reveal its secrets if you maintain a flexible and cagey frame of mind. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20): It’s a good time to indulge in wide-open, high-flying, anything-goes fantasies about love IF — that is, IF — you also do something practical to help those fantasies come true. So I encourage you to dream about revolutionizing your relationship with romance and intimacy — as long as you also make specific adjustments in your own attitudes and behavior that will make the revolution more likely. Two more tips: 1. Free yourself from dogmatic beliefs you might have about love’s possibilities. 2. Work to increase your capacity for lusty trust and trusty lust.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): The current chapter of your life story may not be quite as epic as I think it is, so my advice may sound melodramatic. Still, what I’m going to tell you is something we all need to hear from time to time. And I’m pretty sure this is one of those moments for you. It comes from writer Charles Bukowski: “Nobody can save you but yourself. You will be put again and again into nearly impossible situations. They will attempt again and again through subterfuge, guise, and force to make you submit, quit and/or die quietly inside. But don’t, don’t, don’t. It’s a war not easily won, but if anything is worth winning then this is it. Nobody can save you but yourself, and you’re worth saving.”
