THE 9TH OF MAY | MOUNTOWN JOURNAL

ENTRY BY JEREMY/HI54LOFI | 9/5 ∞

The ninth day of May—also known as 'The 9th of Meh' in some households (ok, only one household)—marks the yearly un-hibernation of the 95EH thing. If you’re like “why the 9th of May specifically?”, here’s 3 #DogsOfKimberley breaking things down…

As you can see, this sort of calendar-related word play only comes around once a year (ok, sure, the 5th of September might work as well, but the illogical shorthand that puts the month before the day is more of a 'Merica thing). So, even though most of the 95EH logistics that need to be figured out still need to be figured out, this '9/5 ≈ 95' happenstance seemed like a numerical synergy way too good to just let pass by. I mean, you can't argue against math.

So, much like the local bears now rolling out of their BEAR HOLES after an extended hibernation (or wherever it is bears sleep), 95EH is now slowly rolling out of its 95 EH-HOLE. What 95EH will be rolling out as will continue to be a work in progress (aren't we all?) — but, in a nutshell, the overall idea for the 95EH project is to be a collaborative platform that not only highlights the people / places / things in the area, but also tries to use the power of the internet in fun & interesting ways. I've got some general ideas on how I think that could work, but, for now, I will spare you the rambling tangents. 

Instead, if you're a local writer / local photographer / local business / local creative / local local who thinks the internet & this section of the world are both pretty neat things, if you believe in the power of collaboration and DIY and mutual benefit and doing things differently and all that good stuff, or maybe you just want to say "hey", feel free to reach out to hey@95eh.ca about whatever (whether that's questions or comments or ideas or et cetera). Or, you can just use the handy form below:


95EH Newsletter
I'm thinking that sending out a bi-weekly email with events / things / news coming up might be a more useful way of getting the word out than chancing the Facebook algorithm. If you think you'd like to receive something like that, check the box below and I'll add your email to the mailing list.

In the meantime, from this 9th of Meh onwards, I will start re-dedicating some extra bit of my tinkering time back from another internet project over to this Highway 95/a one, eh. When something new is added or something old is updated, the 95EH socials will probably be the best place to keep up to date… so if you're not already, please follow along / say hello on whichever ones you use:

ChEERS & Have A Happy 9/5 DAY EH!

Or, if you're like Pete, have a fine 9th of Meh or whatever ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
