forgot about this whole weblog thingy.

anyways, for those who might be interested ...

i'm working with computers again. welcome change from being the lead busser at the roundhouse. i'm creating help desk software and some crm software for a small wireless company in whistler. [link] i'm also starting up a contracting company (finally) to deal with all the contracts i've been offered up here. one of the cooler companies i've been dealing with for this is xploremedia. i'm also the IT-everything guy for the whistler creek athletic club and tommy africa's. the last two are pretty sweet jobs -- i do max 4 hours a week at both, i get paid in trade. so ... free gym pass and free booze. hell yeah.

i'm also starting up a record store. that's exciting for me. as in real exciting. lindsay (my business partner) and i just had a meeting with a realtor about a storefront in function junction. pretty mellow building -- our neighbours would be the tattoo shop, which is great considering i'm itching for some more tattoos. we should hopefully (fingers crossed here) take over the space on dec. 1st. just in time for the christmas rush. oh yeah, we still don't have a store name. we've got a couple ideas but nothing has seemed to settle yet. if anyone out there has an idea, feel free to toss it in the comments. hell, give us a name that we use and i can promise one crazy night if you come up to whistler in return. *edit* just so everyone knows, this store is mostly going to be vinyl. we'll do cd's and musical gear eventually but not yet. oh yeah, we've also got some pretty dope clothing lines already. if anybody out there has their own clothing lines, get in touch with me at mike@antiflux.org or 604.932.2916

what else ... well, with my general state of busy-ness, i'm pretty sure i'm not buying a pass this winter. it's just not going to be worth it for me this year. i can't justify the huge expense if i'm only going to be heading up the hill 3 or 4 times. and plus, i've been riding over 200 times in the past 2 years.

found me some new roomies. again. i presently have a couple of aussies living with me. they're awesome so i forgive them the australian part.

still being the little party-kid that many of you have met in the past. went to many an outdoor party this summer, went down to vancouver in september to catch the atmosphere / brother ali show (ill!), caused many a funny situation at many a bar just by being myself. it's all good though.

guess that's really about it for now.

nice work. i was always amazed that whistler didn't have a record store (top ten or whatever definitely doesn't count).

thanks ben. i *really* didn't feel like creating a whole crm solution for this company. especially considering it would all be done in asp.net and c# (they requested this)

I think a good name would be whatever the one in the mall at vice city is called.
I also like the beauty of "the record store". it's simple.
