Welcome to the Twilight Zone

Okay, so life here in Vancouver has been pretty sweet so far. Classes have started, assignments have been handed out and work is starting to happen... I must say, it's super cool joting down notes about cinematography, directing and producing. Also as students of the school we were given free tickets to a preview showing of the new Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu film "Babel". Does that sound pompus or what? To tell you the truth I wasn't a big fan.... it was kind of awkward, but the idea of the thing is cool enough.

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone!"

For your consideration..... a city in the lower mainland of BC... a large city with a diverse population, but all is not as it seems on the cheery exterior... not as it seems at all......

I have just started to witness some of the more peculiar aspects of living in a big city. Yesterday was weird. The buses were really packed, which I hate, and when I was waiting for said bus there was two homeless men haning around. That in itself is not the weird thing. They were yelling at buses as they passed by, swearing, calling them bears? I don't know what that means. the other gentleman was making large circles with his ares and waving at people as he mumbled to himself... it was creepy..

And Today a guy followed me for a block asking me for money, he was really persistant. I've gotten really good at saying no to people asking me for money... and also I was hit on by an old lady... that was weird too, she was a a teller at the grocery store.... it made me awkward...... anyhow...

"Oh... whats this? oh yeah you're out of the twilight zone now...."

so those are the Twilighty things that have been happening in my life.... spooky......... just in time for halloween!!!

well, I have some homework that needs my attention at the moment, so peace out
