Nothing brings me more pleasure than spending my birthday Sunday with a group of wonderfully talented people putting this gem together for Vue Weekly:

Living in Edmonton one knows there are only three proper seasons here: summer, winter and "The Brown Season." It’s that in-between juncture, when you can’t quite tell whether it’s fall or spring and as the snow slowly melts, that the great garbage reveal begins. Here in Dirt City spring fashion is all about hope and patience, so bust out your pastel colours in anticipation, but be sure to pack your gloves, too—there’s always another freak snowstorm around the corner.
