  • That’s a wrap 11 September 2013

    After a summer spent doing little more than working, I once again have some time to breathe and see friends and do things that I love. One of those things I love is blogging at MrYYC. However, I have made the choice not to revive this blog (though I reserve the right to change

  • Gone fishin’ 7 May 2013

    It is with a good deal of reconsideration and plenty of regret that I’m going to be taking a hiatus of undetermined length from my blogging here at MrYYC. Other priorities have simply taken hold of my time, and don’t appear all that amenable to letting go in the near future.

    I thank you

  • Cirque du Soleil–Amaluna now in Calgary 11 April 2013

    I can’t even begin to tell you how many crushes I developed last night. So many! You know all of those gorgeous people in the new Destination Calgary video? Yeah, hot babes and dudes, to be sure. But they have nothing on the visitors we are hosting for the next few weeks, the cast

  • Calgary Dollars Market–Mon Apr 8 8 April 2013

    Couldn’t find a goodly sized photo that represented Calgary Dollars well, nor a very big image of their logo, so please look at this funny platypus instead.

    I wrote about Calgary Dollars previously and pretty much intimated at the time that I don’t know anything first-hand about this alternative currency. What I can

  • EPIC launches cowork space for social ventures 3 April 2013

    Two phrases that I find entering my sphere more and more in the last couple of years are “social enterprise” and “cowork space”. Today, the launch of a new not-for-profit facility marries the two. EPIC is a new social enterprise (A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in

  • April 2013 preview of Calgary events, festivals, speakers, fundraisers, and more 2 April 2013

    I’ve been a busy fellow these last handful of months. And I was finding that my busy world was keeping me from blogging. In fact, I was toying with the idea that it’s time to hang up the skates on this project, as it is a pretty considerable demand on my time. Last night,

  • World Storytelling Day 2013 events 18 March 2013

    Who doesn’t like to hear a good story? Nobody, that’s who. Humankind has a long, long, long tradition of oral storytelling—in fact, for

  • International Festival of Animated Objects, Mar 9 to 17 12 March 2013

    Have you known someone whose birthday falls on February 29? If so, you may have noticed how super-exciting their birthday is when it actually rolls around once every four years. It could be for a very similar reason that I get a little giggity when Calgary’s International Festival of Animated Objects returns, since only

  • Don’t come looking for me…I’m fine 23 February 2013

    No, I haven’t been arrested. Really, Mom, I’m fine. I swear. As usually happens this time of year, workload at the day job gets a little overwhelming. You’re not going to hear much from me until after my parole date deadline has passed in early March.

  • Winefest February 22 and 23 (+ win 2 tickets!) 19 February 2013

    One of my favourite events of the year returns to Calgary this coming weekend. I don’t know if you’ll like it though. I mean, it’s only an all-included festival dedicated to the most sophisticated and intoxicating (figuratively and literally) beverages known to humankind. Yeah, you wouldn’t like that at all, would you?

    Oh, of
