DANO Pendygrasse

odds and ends from an unusual life

Grenade Games day 5 and all the crazy video movies...

I'm poking my head out to say hi to everyone. The Grenade Games are a rolling ball of madness and destruction. The parties every night and the hilarious events are way beyond what my fragile soul was prepared for but I like to think I'm rallying to the cause. My liver hasn't taken this kind of abuse in years.

The halfpipe finals are on now, I'm uploading photos from the rock party last night that SBC and Monster threw. The video is going to be as hilarious as the Grenade Games opening night at sushi village video. You can see all of em here.

Wish me luck. In 48 hours it will all be over.

The dancefloor was madness. Especially for Slayer, Angel of Death.

Carts of Darkness, Whistler Film Fest, WCP party.

Here is a quick shot from last week. I was in Whistler for a screening of my friend Murray Siple's "Carts of Darkness". It's an amazing documentary about bottle pickers who ride shopping carts down steep hills. Afterwards we met up with Nix from Fourstar Canada for some sushi. The Whistler Film festival is going on so we went to one of their party/gala deals where we hooked up with Whistler superstar Ace Mckay-Smith and legendary DJ/Producer Scott Arkwell.

This crew was obviously a recipe for hours of conversation, foosball and venue-testing. I don't get to hang with the good people as often as I'd like and this was an awesome night that I paid for dearly the next day.

The next night was the Film Fest party put on by Whistler Creek Productions. I set up a photo booth and we shot some of the attendees. Another legend, Bruce McDonald, was in the room and there were screenings of some of the films from the Heavy Hitting B-Grade Horror film Fest as well as an auction of some photos. Here are some of my favourite shots from out front. The rest will be on the WCP site later.
