On the bus ...

Sigh ... it never ends ... :|

The skid row hookers ...

Image

... and the passed out passengers,

Image

the accidents .. (note the broken gushing fire hydrant)

Image

and the masked bandits.

Image

There is some art ...

Image

... but most days I'd rather be driving the Dog Bus. :D

Re: On the bus ...

I studied this poem in Canadian Lit. last year. One of my favourite Canadian poems. It is written from a very pessimistic perspective, pointing out the frailties of the human condition. Birney wrote it during the early years of WWII, so it's not hard to guess where his pessimism comes from. Maybe if Brendan puts pen to paper to express his experiences in Vancouver he could be a contemporary Earle Birney. ;)

Earle Birney
Vancouver Lights
1941

About me the night moonless wimples the mountains
wraps ocean land air and mounting
sucks at the stars The city throbbing below
webs the sable peninsula The golden
strands overleap the seajet by bridge and buoy
vault the shears of the inlet climb the woods
toward me falter and halt Across to the firefly
haze of a ship on the gulps erased horizon
roll the lambent spokes of a lighthouse

Through the feckless years we have come to the time
when to look on this quilt of lamps is a troubling delight
Welling from Europe's bog through Africa flowing
and Asia drowning the lonely lumes on the oceans
tiding up over Halifax now to this winking
outpost comes flooding the primal ink

On this mountain's brutish forehead with terror of space
I stir of the changeless night and the stark ranges
of nothing pulsing down from beyond and between
the fragile planets We are a spark beleaguered
by darkness this twinkle we make in a corner of emptiness
how shall we utter our fear that the black Experimentress
will never in the range of her microscope find it? Our Phoebus
himself is a bubble that dries on Her slide while the Nubian
wears for an evening's whim a necklace of nebulae

Yet we must speak we the unique glowworms
Out of the waters and rocks of our little world
we conjured these flames hooped these sparks
by our will From blankness and cold we fashioned stars
to our size and signalled Aldebaran
This must we say whoever may be to hear us
if murk devour and none weave again in gossamer:

These rays were ours
we made and unmade them Not the shudder of continents
doused us the moon's passion nor crash of comets
In the fathomless heat of our dwarfdom our dream's combustion
we contrived the power the blast that snuffed us
No one bound Prometheus Himself he chained
and consumed his own bright liver O stranger
Plutonian descendant or beast in the stretching night--
there was light

Re: On the bus ...

And also relevant, the song "The Vancouver National Anthem" by Matthew Good off the album "Vancouver"

(Link to the audio of the song)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQVLVUxpaes

(Song lyrics)

Out of the alleys, our needle strewn fields
Into the sunlight that the brochures reveal
Like snakes come for rabbits and rabbits for meals
Where the oar and the axe flies

Well this is our story (stick to
it) but it ain't the truth
Cause the truth's just for liars that need an excuse
Around here love's a gangster and charity's the proof
Where God deals on Sundays under a rain burning roof
it's five blocks a universe and aliens for each
Like invisible ghettos of priviledge and grief
And pinned up between them the carrion fly
Living off skeletons of recycled lives

This is the place you find out
Well this is the way you find out

We all live downtown
Pay two even, no parking
Live with a clown
Step over ourselves
We all live downtown
Pay in blood, no parking
Sleep on the ground
Step over ourselves

We all live downtown
We all die downtown
Step over ourselves

Well this is our story (stick to
it) but it ain't the truth
Cause the truth's just for liars that need an excuse
For a king crown a banker, the queen crown a noose
Like heirs to a graveyard where
the dirt's always loose
it's five blocks a universe and aliens for each
Like invisible ghettos of priviledge and grief
And pinned up between them the carrion fly
Picking off skeletons under a big northern sky

This is the place where you find out
Well this is the way you find out

We all live downtown
We all die downtown
Step over ourselves
Just your typical waffle-loving Canadian.

Re: On the bus ...

From your photos I presume that raccoons take the bus, and the black bears are allowed to drive, in Vancouver.
This might explain the fire hydrant accident.
