Good old Dick's on Dick's. That place was a hole, but I've seen some good music there. Not surprised at all, but a little saddened.

Still, nightclubbish concert venues aren't the only forms of culture. How about the hundreds of community gardens? Local festivals (like Illuminares @ Trout Lake)? The Emily Carr art school? I never found a shortage of intersting or thought-provoking things to do while I was there.

As for the failures of west-coast life, I do agree in many ways. Especially on the Lower Mainland, in the many sprawling cities that surrounds it. In my time on the West Coast I met more people than I could count who'd moved there from Southern Ontario to get away from the endless urban banality. Yet exactly the same kinds of homes and communities were springing up there to recieve them, flattening many of the "wild and free" amenities people moved out there in serach of.
