Newspaper Article About Boxing Day Morning

Above is an article from the NOW that I scanned which has a photo of Jason, Brian, and I (in the top photo, on the right) sitting outside futureshop around 1am, in line for their doorcrashing deals!  Hoorah for newspaper appearance!  Click the image to make it larger.

This year we went much earlier and were the second group in line.  We watched Star Wars while sitting in line with a heat lamp and making new friends.  Brian, Jason and I were the first there, and later I drove and picked up Nate in exchange for dropping Jason at home.

Our goal this year was a Blu-ray player, and we executed our plan perfectly!  In and out with a Sharp Blu-ray player for Nate, and for myself?  Well, I just had to drop the cash on a 7.1 surroud sound reciever that was packaged with a 5.1 speaker setup and my precious Sony Blu-ray player.  It has made for some really awesome movie nights at my place.  Now I just need to find time to get the speakers properly setup on the wall instead of sitting one on the planter, and the other on the dining room table.  Speaker stands for the front two would be nice too so that I can take our huge old speakers and bring them downstairs.

Newspaper Clippings from 50 Hour Challenge

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

There have been two articles in the paper, this first one was in the Peace Arch Newspaper today, on page 22:

The second article was printed in the Surrey Now, which I will get a copy of soon and post up here as well, but for now you can read the article on their website.  I’m mentioned in the 9th paragraph down:

Garnering first prize was Paul Romein’s group, Raised by Monkeys. Romein has entered several of these contests and is pretty well established as a “mini” filmmaker. Check out his website at”

This second article is more specific and has my website written in it so hopefully people can use that to come watch the contest version of the film if they are interested!

Actually – if you are reading this and got my website from the paper, I’d love to hear from you – just post a comment on here!
