Vancouver International Fireworks Competition

Vancouver International Foreworks Competition

Each summer, Vancouver hosts what they call the Celebration of Light, International Fireworks Competition, in which teams from three countries (this year: Canada, USA, and China) ignite the sky on four different nights over two weeks. Last night, Team Canada fired the opening salvo.

As always, we wandered down to the beach to watch from across the bay and snap a few photos.

    Gorgeous photos! I love fireworks! The fireworks show I watched on July 4th caused a huge fire and the fire department had to come spray everything down in the middle of the show. It was pretty ridiculous. Fireworks over the water is always pretty- twice the color- and also probably a better idea. Especially when it hasn’t rained in about a million years. Which, in Texas, it hasn’t.

Blasts from the Past

... because the idiocy of manliness is an evergreen topic.


... because Canada and the US will celebrate their Thanksgiving holidays and, regrettably and preventably, not 1-cook-in-10 will serve a decent turkey.


... because everyday is Mother's Day.


... because the American Dream seems but a distant memory, given the country's dominant ethos of small-mindedness.


... to remind us that not every mix of Tibetans and Western spiritual seekers has to be nauseating.


... to celebrate the new edition of Infinite Vision published in India.


... reprised because military strategy seems more cruel and less effective than ever -- and certainly there is a better way.


... because cars are ruining Pondicherry, where I live. How badly are they fucking up your Indian town?


... reprinted because more-and-more people seem want to understand the gift economy. (Yeah!)
