FreeChurch Toronto Coffeehouse for February 2010

Last night, FreeChurch hosted a coffeehouse to the community of downtown Toronto. It was an awesome night showcasing some the young and talented musicians of the community.

My Living Room was in charge of preparing the whole night and it was just amazing to see it basically empty at first, but have it fully decorated and filled with people 2 hours later. We did it all from setting up the sound equipment (phew!), to throwing fabrics around, placing candles around the room and even preparing all the food and drinks. Once the music started, it felt nice taking a step back, surveying the hall, watching people have a good time.

Brad's band creating an atmosphere with a post-rock style.

There were some good and varying sets of music; starting with more acoustic-y and melodic tunes in the beginning, to some pastor raps, ending with two full band sets. I think there was a little something for everyone.

By the way, I learned quite a few things tonight. The one that sticks out the most is that those really small and low candles aren't called candles at all; they are called tealights. And now you know.

You can view some of the pics I took of the night (here). Below are two videos I recorded of some sick tunes. Til next time, later geeks!

Pastor Cyril Guerette freestyling. See if you can hear some of the name drops. He gives a shout out to my brothers Justin Aitcheson, Drew Dafoe, Andrew, Brad and even a Jeff Lam. I'm in a rap song, I think I can sleep happily now!


The pastoral intern Matt (ie. the nicest guy on the planet) lays down his own beats! So illin'!

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up

Let the good times roll!

Welcome to the revamped Billionty-Oneth Geek website! First of all, update your bookmarks and re-subscribe to the feed if you have to. I bought a domain name for my blog, and it's easy access (sort of) through www.billiontyonethgeek.com (I'm sorry that it's such a long address, but hey, here's a hug *hug*). Second of all, you might have noticed the new layout. It's a complete Lam original! I designed it from the top down. It actually took a lot quicker than I had initially thought it would. Because the coding didn't show up properly on Dreamweaver through the GUI, I actually had to code the whole damn thing. Because my knowledge of HTML and CSS were so basic, it took a lot of trial and error. What's frustrating was that there would be times where I'd make a change in the code, yet nothing ended up changing when I uploaded the code. The weird part was that I'd block off the changes, then undo it, and somehow magically the changes appeared.
