Address Is Approximate from The Theory on Vimeo. Staying home up north this Christmas but I found a neat video on a CG road trip to the Pacific coast by a little guy. Enjoy in full screen.
Miss Congeniality and alleged rioter
Other folks on the road include Sophie LaBoissoniere who won the title of Miss Congeniality during the Miss Coastal Vancouver Beauty Pageant and didn't show up at her Provincial Court appearance on Wednesday for alledgedly taking part in the infamous Stanley Cup riots where downtown Vancouver was wrecked and cars torched in the streets.
Stanley cup riot
Norwegians are also on the road after the country ran out of butter leading to a mass shopping trip to Sweden's grocery stores. Increases in butter use was blamed on traditional Norwegian Christmas goodies that use butter and a poor summer for grain which fed cattle in the country.
