Was gonna go see Buck65, bus didn't agree....

The Canada Winter Games are in town this year, and along with the entertainment of quality amatuer sport competitions, they offered a nightly concert series in Downtown Halifax's Parade Square (oh wait I hear they call it Celebration Quare now? pfft). I hadn't had a chance to get out and see any of the festivities, but when I read Buck was headlining tonight I made it a point to meet up with a chum and check it out.

That is where bus #52 comes in. This bus is like a cancer on the bus industry (NWP/DD shout out OBV). The MOST UNRELIABLE bus in service in all of the HRM. Oh, and I am ohhh sooo lucky to live on its route. This damn bus is either a mile late (when you are at stop nice and early) or it somehow flies thru its route (when you are pushing a minute late to the stop). The best (read: WORST) is when u barely miss one run because he was early (1/1,000 shot right there), and then the next driver is the standard 5-10 minutes late, meaning you're stuck waiting 40+ minutes for a bus that runs every 30!! Long rant short, the #52 bus never runs on time, no matter what time of day or week, busy or not. I need to move onto a new bus route. Or get my liscence back and look to score a car.

So I didn't make it to the Buck65 show, of course. Ended up stopping in Wendy's for a dish of Honey BBQ wings + 3 junior bacon cheeseburgers. mm mm good.




On a musical note, thinking of putting together an all Deadmau5 mix, in the same vein as the Marco V mix I did last year. Nothing special, just a mixed version of one of his latest albums. For the fun of it.

Look for it this weekend! Ciao for now.

  11. I heard that Canadian public transit isn't very reliable because they go on strike a lot. But that just might be around Toronto.
