From Vancouver, to You

Update: Metroblogging’s running post about all the “7 Gifts” from every Metroblogging City around the world!

My “for:Miss604” tag on is pretty full of articles and web bits that John’s been sending me lately. I’m just catching up on my reads and getting to some of my feeds this morning.

Something worth checking out is Metroblogging’s 7 Gifts.

For the next seven days, the Metroblogging sites around the globe will be unveiling seven gifts their cities can share with the world – one gift a day for seven days. [mbv]

There are 50 Metroblogging sites so it will be interesting to peruse them (every day) to see what their gift will be. We’ve posted two from Vancouver already: Flickr and Greenpeace [mbv]. You can easily browse other cities’ posts via our home-base blog city, Blogging.La [].

In Miss 604/RadioZoom news, our last band interviewee, Sparta [miss604], will be on TV this week [punknews]. Wednesday, November 29th Sparta will be the musical guest on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson [CBS]. From John & Rebecca in the back of Richards on Richards to the main stage in late night television. That’s pretty freakin cool. If you haven’t already picked up their latest album, Threes, I highly suggest you do so.

I should also mention that we have another interview lined up with the East Coast Canadian group, Wintersleep. They’ll be playing a show at the Plaza Club on December 2nd. We talked about this a little on the latest RadioZoom podcast, and I can’t believe I didn’t make an entry about that episode. I’ll make up for it now [RadioZoom Episode #120].

I’ve added all the neat-o band interviews and special moments to my Best Of page. So far I have our interviews, the private Matt Good living room show special time and the post about the 2 year anniversary of my blog. Those are just some of my favourite posts, if you have one please let me know and I’ll add it in there.

Thanks to all those who helped with this redesign. John for being very very patient, and a couple friends who helped with the theme and logo creation (which still is not complete, tinkering is inevitable).
