Nederlands Cannabis Trip 2002
Featuring Uncle Weed, The Unabonger (AKA Cosmo G Spacely), Gazoo (rip) and other friends. We judged the Cannabis Cup, put on a screening of the HempenRoad, took train trips to Deventer and Haarlem (for the Dutch Grower’s Cup) and van rides to Madurodam and other outlying areas.
Filmed in 11 second pieces at 320×280 or something on a borrowed early Sony digital camera.
Whether by divine decree or coincidence, we happened into the famed Spanish town of Santiago de Compostela the day before Pope John Paul II died.
I’m not a Catholic but wondered in the pageantry and the amazement of the pilgrims completing their walk on the Camino De Santiago.
During this time, I attended my first and only mass at the giant and well used Cathedral. The giant vats of incense swaying, bells ringing in discord, and this parade happening as we walked to mass.
The ladies had their best haridos and the dudes all walk chill and then throngs of priests in their finery hefting and shrine and beating the ground with their canes.
Also I ate a cracker and touched the bones of San Ignacio AKA Saint James. It is believed in the lore of some cultures that Santiago was the secret hiding place for Jesus Christ’s family or himself and his entourage, further, this is purported to be a strong hold of the Knights Templar who emerged during the Crusades but were thwarted during the various Inquisitions… except the one who continued the traditions in Santiago…
Anyhow, here’s a bit of a parade filmed in 2005 on a Sony Hi8 tape camera. Glad it survived to share.

While on the road for a day-job gig, I filmed some taxi rides around Manhattan and then out to JFK airport (one day after an alleged bombing attempt). Take a look won’t ya. Shows a variety of cityscapes, roadways, buildings, busy roadways, and culture. Just rolling in the city. That’s all.
On Boxing Day 2007 (Dec. 26th to USA), me and a pal head downtown Vancouver to a shop on Robson street and documenting the sights and sounds of transit and other holiday season oddities.

After pointing vaguely towards the Gulf Islands, Fraser Valley, Burrard Inlet, Stanley Park and Lions’s Gate Bridge, he caressingly creates a few panorama shots of the environs with a soundtrack of earnest folks taking photos.
