See You at Fan Expo Vancouver!

In case you haven’t noticed, Fan Expo Vancouver is coming to the Vancouver Convention Center this weekend! This will be the first Vancouver incarnation of the 17 year old Toronto Event. Guests include Lou Ferrigno, Adam West, Burt Ward, Marina Sirtis, Kevin Sorbo and a whole lot more than you can shake a phaser at! There will also be the Canadian Video Game Awards, Cosplay, and tons of exhibitors. I’ll be spending Saturday at the convention, so keep watching this space for photos and con report next week!

Video Games Live Gets Vancouver Tour Date

Video Games Live has finally acknowledged that Canadians love their symphony as much as their video games, and so they are adding a host of new Canadian Tour dates! The Concert comes to the Orpheum in Vancouver on November 6, 2012. Tickets are set to go on sale April 25. Check out the Video Games Live Website for more tour dates.



MacGyver’s Houseboat Listed on eBay

The boathouse used during the Vancouver seasons of MacGyver has been posted on eBay by the owner. The house was the base of operations for Richard Dean Anderson’s gadget-building crimefighter in the 1980’s. The house has since been painted bright blue, and its Coal Harbour berthing has probably sent its value skyrocketing. Owner Dave Edmonson has refused to disclose the reserve on it, but the 2 million dollar sale of the boathouse from Sleepless in Seattle means Aunt Patty and Selma are probably have to take out 3rd and 4th mortgages to afford this baby.
