Out There is a new column for the Telegraph that will focus on adventures outside of the Mountain Kingdom [editor's note: is there anything beyond Wedding Cake corner and the Nancy Green Junction? We've all heard the rumours, but I thought they were just rural myths...] Without sounding too Star Trek-like, our mission is to seek out new life and boldly go where probably lots of people have...

As the sun sets on the 142nd birthday our country, the curtain rises on the 23rd season of the Rossland Gold Fever Follies. What is it that keeps locals and non-locals alike spending their summer performing about 80 shows while sweltering in layer upon layer of cancan skirt ruffles? As a cast member myself this year, I believe the appeal...

As all good stories begin, once upon a time on a Monday night that had the entire town covered in Ice this past winter I slid my way down the hill to take in a riveting night of city council. Interrupting my step step slide rhythm as I made my way down Columbia like a curler, I was interrupted by a phone call from a friend living back in Whistler.

It was about the time that two tiny dogs started humping that I began to lose faith, not just in Transformers 2, but in humanity itself. I attended the film in Castlegar at the behest of my two sons, who wanted a ride. As the two poor animals 'got it on' a roar came from the sold-out theatre. Laughter, joy. I guess.

So I lost my faith in humanity and then decided to place it in the...

"I’m on the twelfth floor of a building in the west end and I’m looking down at a pool. There are two chicks and a baby in that pool and I want to be down there." Replacing hello with a twitter-esque up to the second status report Robbie Bracken, lead singer of the Vancouver based band Brickhouse, answered my call this week.

As Vancouver’s "Hardest working band" I possibly should have...

How often have we seen great rock stars come to an untimely demise and wished we could have heard just a few more new songs from them? We’ve all discussed, blogged about, or just sat back in a natural hot spring staring into the stars, dancing to the tune of whatever Kootenay alchemic concoction was conducting your mental orchestra, and talked about the great 'what ifs' of rock music.
