Squamish-Land and Tron-ified

Hey guys,

How's it going? WOW, now that's a long week, holy smokes. I worked till 2:00 am almost everyday with Tuesday at 8:00 am and sleeping most of Wednesday.

Squamish, Vancouver, BC
This weekend I spent some time over in Squamish which was wicked kewl. I made a roadtrip video which I'll be posting soon but neath-less to say, it was an amazing trip to be there. I want to go there again sometime soon.

We finally wrapped up 'The Haunting Hour Episode 109' and started two other movies, 'A Family Again' and 'Never Tell A Lie' which looks like another intense week but lets see how it goes. I'm recovering from last week and hopefully I'll feel alot better by Monday.
