Tonight we are going to see a group called the Lost Fingers on Granville Island. I'm very excited to hear them do their rendition of Wham's "Careless Whisper". They are a Quebec-based group who pay hommage to Gypsy Jazz, and Django Reirhardt in particular, in their own very unique way. Check them out here to see what I mean.
There is a bit of an outdoor installation going on downtown for the Olympics. One of them is covered in lanterns made by kids. Pretty and colourful in the day, and pretty night-lights when it gets darker.
I made a lantern from paper last summer.. in the shape of a house, chimney and everything..
then it rained.
