YVR is currently in the grip of a record-breaking heatwave. This page is not being regularly updated because the office at Anodyne HQ is AT LEAST 30 degrees Celsius and quite possibly warmer.

Updates will resume once things cool down on the weekend.

Waste My Time, Please

PHONE: Ring!

CJB: Pulpfiction Books, good morning.

PHONE GUY: Got any books by Roberto Bolano? You probably haven't heard of him.

CJB: [reels off list of seven different Bolano titles, including several not widely available in Canada]

PG: Huh. And could you tell me who the translators are.

CJB: Sure.

[Opens books, locates and reads translators' names one by one]

PG: These are all used books, right? I can bring books in and trade for them?

CJB: No, these are new copies. 20% off, like all our new books.

PG: I'm only interested in used ones.

CJB: Good luck with that!

Young pudgy guy in a fluorescent tie-dye and flip-flops walks past the open front door with a lady friend in tow.

YOUNG GUY [fake Cockey accent]: Then I'me gowing to eat your box!

Q: Dr. Wu?

A: Never performed live. Played once a few summers ago at sound check to a stunned audience of open air concert bowl lurkers who couldn't believe the sounds floating up from behind the fence.
