#daveo50 ~ 2015 / passport

Project: Upon turning 50 years old on August 16, 2020, Dave Olson (me, hello) is posting a photo (or maybe photos) a day / per year – starting with 1970 with intent of chronicling existence through various primary evidence sourced from studio portraits, class photos, ID / passport photos, or occasionally other “casual/group/random” shots when the above don’t exist in my archive (note: not “artificial intelligence,” really me, pulled from shoeboxes, journals, wallets and whatnot – diligently scanned and dated via glasses and haircuts, lightly annotated).

Media: Mattocks + Jamaican Flag #Whitecaps, July 2012

“Caps Achieve Lift-off” The Province Sports, July 23, 2012 with Darren Mattocks, Barry Robson, Gershon Koffie, me and brother Dan

At a July 2012  Whitecaps match vs San Jose Earthquakes, Jamaican speedster Darren Mattocks scored a big goal and, in celebration, hopped the barrier and grabbed the Jamaican flag I was waving, then paraded with it onto the field, received a yellow card for his troubles and brought the flag back – (now it is at Dan’s house?). The Province newspaper ran a photo as the cover story the next day. 

There are more artifacts of evidence of the incident (and what appears to be another match with similar outcomes) as various media outlets picked up the goodness (thanks to folks who captured and sent along for archival amusement), ergo:

With noted Vancouver media personality :) and my pal Rebecca Bollwitt @miss604 with the flag of note after a match

Miss 604’s > Vancouverites in Isolation Elsewhere: Dave in Japan

A “situation report” on life in Okayama and Japan at large from Rebecca Bollwitt’s well-read Miss604.com blog in my erstwhile hometown of Vancouver.

Of course, includes fun photos, various asides, musings and anecdotes.  Certainly *everything* is changing on the daily here so if you have an update/opinion (because of course you do)/resources etc to add to the riff, please do.

Fire away, spark the conversation, spread the goodness.

Yours fondly in solidarity, positivity and safety, daveo

Fresh Media: On future of media in Canada – Vancouver Sun

By GILLIAN SHAW 24 OCT 2009

Excerpt:

The Fresh Media forum at Vancouver’s newly opened W2 Community Media Arts had more questions than answers about the future of news and story telling in Canada.

But probably that is as it should be in an area that is changing day-by-day, as technology delivers new ways to share and disseminate information with audiences that span the globe.

And what was most telling was the optimism at Fresh Media for learning and adapting to the many forms of media that let everyone become a publisher. Continue reading Fresh Media: On future of media in Canada Gillian Shaw / Vancouver Sun

“local cultural artefact” – Reco/blurbs from: S. Rees, G. Shaw + R. Bollwitt (NNV2009)

As seen in Rebecca Bollwitt’s Miss 604 post: Northern Voice 2009 Dave Olson Letters from Russia

“Uncleweed is a local cultural artefact and we should find ways to get him funded so he can keep on doing his schtick.” 

Stephen Rees February 22nd, 2009

The only tweet I managed during this session was “laughing too hard to type”. Uncleweed is a local cultural artefact and we should find ways to get him funded so he can keep on doing his schtick.

Gillian Shaw February 23rd, 2009

That is too funny Stephen. Grants have gone to way less worthy causes – this should be no problem! 😉

When Uncleweed is on tap for a speaking engagement I make sure not to miss it even though I’ve seen him do over a dozen talks in the years I’ve known him.

Rebecca Bollwitt, Miss604 February 20, 2009

More from Rebecca:

I wasn’t live blogging his session as I wanted to pay attention and focus on his message, delivered as he stood before a packed while sporting a smoking jacket.

I did however jot down some of his quotes on Twitter and John Biehler snapped some photos so I’ll share those now.

“I came across a ticket that was $420 to Belize. I was like ‘BUY’ … I wonder where Belize is?”

“If any of you have read it, it’s a big long story and there’s a lot of war and a lot of peace…”

“If you snip the kite string will it soar higher? No it will tumble to the ground.”

“80% meditation, 10% execution, 10% inebriation.”
