Last night, I went to see the fabulous new film Boyhood by Rick Linklater, whose previous films include Slacker (his first film to catch my attention), Dazed and Confused, Waking Life and the trilogy Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight, which were made over a 17-year period. His new film was made over a 12-year period with the same cast, showing the evolution of a boy from age six to 18, when he goes off to college.

Today’s song is Hero by Family of the Year, from the Boyhood soundtrack:Here’s another song from the film — Do You Realize? by the Flaming Lips:

Jay DeMerit’s buddy buys Desigual monkey shirt

Jay.Demerit.and.Ashley.McIvorJay DeMerit, who announced his retirement last week as captain of Vancouver’s Whitecaps soccer team, popped into Angel on Monday with two friends — one bought a Desigual shirt called  Monkey 3D.

Desigual.man.TS.MONKEY.3D.red.SS2014.41T1472_3144 Desigual.MONKEY.3D.blue.SS2014I told Jay that I knew his mother, who had dropped by the store some years ago, after Jay first moved to Vancouver. “You know my mother?” he asked. “Yes, she’s great,” I replied. Jay agreed, giving me a high five.

Jay’s buddy, by the way, wanted the monkey shirt in a medium. I told him to try a large, saying it was like a “Spanish medium.” It fit him perfectly.

As the trio left, I heard Jay jokingly say to his buddy: “It’s not a large, it’s a Spanish medium.”

Jay lives in Gastown and often washes his cool car — an orange 1969 Camaro SS convertible with a white top and interior — on the street outside his apartment.
