Re: Music

i wouldn't consider myself a major fan of barenaked ladies, but i liked the earlier stuff when i heard it on the radio. they are reuniting for the junos. to me, their voice is stephen page, who left the band a decade or so ago

Re: Music

as usual i'm late to the show for bands i used to follow, but suicidal 2016 sounds more like old suicidal.  looks like they have a newer one out too

ebikebc.com bolt-on kits

anybody know a bit about these? I just read BionX Canada went into receivership so looking for other options. ebikebc seems legit, just looking for opinions. It would be for a Kona Unit 29er...a bolt-on 350X down tube kit. Looking for a kit, not new bike.

thanks

edit: just in case i need to mention, it is for commuting.  50km/day too much for my old bones

Re: I want a new laptop

http://www.eurocom.com/

eurocom laptops are pretty good; there are some reviews online. they aren't full of bloatware, and that you can upgrade and customize. and from a canadian company. they aren't as disposable as others

Re: RIP Gord

r.i.p. gord downie.  radio stations seemed to reduce gord down to wheat kings and bobcaygeon which got a little annoying by the end of the day, but i'll assume us fans put on something in addition to that

for me it was put it off: it builds and builds, so good

Re: NSMB decide my life - where to move to?

Re: NSMB decide my life - where to move to?

as an aside pertaining to rossland, i would make sure you want to live in a ski town.  not everyone does.  a lot like to live down below and elsewhere, where regular people live (for lack of a better word).  a lot move there for some mountain bliss or whatever and live in this little bubble paradise and immediately snub their noses at other towns (trail, castlegar).  i noticed fernie people did this too to folks in sparwood.  maybe read the local papers first, to get a sense of the people, area, etc.

as for as rossland, i'm not sure you'll be getting land there for cheapish. there are lots of places near me that are affordable dumps with land. pass creek, slocan valley, blewett, etc. closer to rossland, you can look at fruitvale and montrose which are more rural.

Being from the city cheapish is relative and I should have been more clear in that land could simply be a standard lot for a house to sit on. I'm not necessarily looking for an acre or more.

whatever you do, when you buy a place mention how cheap it was and you don't have to work anymore...locals love that...haha

but seriously, around here at least, a lot of folks who grew up here abhor this new gentrification happening in their hoods, who used to blame albertans but now look to vancouverites as well...i dunno...maybe tread lightly maybe wherever you may be

but seriously seriously, the west koots is where it's at

Re: NSMB decide my life - where to move to?

yeah shopping is expensive and limited in the sticks.  we lived in burnaby for the last two years and got used to food selection, especially asian stuff.  we are back in the sticks (crescent valley between nelson and castlegar) and we spend a ton on food.  we have land here, so we'll see how green our thumbs will be.
