THE WEEKLY EH? (JAN 14 - JAN 20)

POSTMARK: JANUARY 14, 2019

WEEKLY-EH_JAN14.jpg

One of the many nice things about living in a mountain town is that weekends tend to end slower than the weekdays start. This not only feels like the right way to live, but another cozy by-product of living a Mountown Life is that your Mondays naturally become the kind of community-agreed upon slowed down that make it possible to take a little moment to ponder what the heck the plan is this week.

Maybe with a nice cup of whatever you’re drinking with your pondering these days—so far for 2019 me, it’s either been a ‘combo of decaf + a pinch of leftover Xmas Baileys’ or just a nicely boring mug of Chamomile —and maybe now is a good time to take one of those pondering breaks? Scroll downwards if you concur.


And now here’s SOMETHING GOOD EVERY DAY, eh?

TUESDAY, January 15th

Author Reading Event: You Are Enough by Smokii Sumac | Join Smokii Sumac on Tuesday, January 15th as he reads from his fantastic debut collection of poetry, you are enough: love poems for the end of the world.

Smokii Sumac presents readers with a brilliant collection of storytelling drawing upon Indigenous literary practice, and inspired by works like Billy Ray Belcourt's This Wound is a World, and Tenille Campbell's #IndianLovePoems. Sumac addresses the grief of being an Indigenous person in Canada, shares timely (and sometimes hilarious) musings on consent, sex, and gender, introduces readers to people and places he has loved and learned from, and through it all, helps us all come to know that we are enough, just as we are.

* Hosted by Smokii Sumac, Kegedonce Press and COTR Aboriginal Gathering Place

THURSDAY, January 17th

Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope (Kimberley) | David Moskowitz is an expert wildlife tracker, photographer, and author of the new book Caribou Rainforest: From Heartbreak to Hope. Join him for a unique multimedia journey into the tragically threatened world of endangered mountain caribou, their home in the world’s largest last remaining inland temperate rainforest, and the critical human choices that will ultimately decide the fate of this stunning ecosystem.

David and a small team of adventurers have been tracking down these rare creatures and documenting the stunning world they call home. Join him in a discussion on the failure of agencies in the US and Canada to regulate industrial resource extraction effectively, honour the treaty rights of indigenous peoples, and protect the integrity of the natural systems of this region—and what we can do now to help support this critically endangered habitat.

Learn about the many challenges facing these beautiful creatures and globally unique ecosystem and the shifting focus of conservation efforts in face of 21st century challenges. A Q&A and book selling/signing will follow the event. More about the book and corresponding film “The Last Stand” can be found here: https://caribourainforest.org/

The evening will begin promptly at 7pm; doors open at 6:30pm. Admission is by donation.

* Hosted by Wildsight and Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative

…of course, there's much more than one thing happening on each day this week, and there are many more days to plan for than just the next 7, so listen to what your gut is trying to tell you & make sure you bookmark 95EH.CA (either in your browser or your brain) for those future moments when you find yourself wondering about what’s going on and coming up in the area. Or maybe take a second and sign-up for The 95EH Newsletter:



But, for right now—since we’re already right here, reading this same sentence—I’ve added a version of The 95EH Events Calendar below for you to see everything happening on whatever day/month you’re curious about.


THE 95EH MINI CALENDAR

* IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET YOUR KIMBERLEY / CRANBROOK & AREA EVENT LISTED IN THE 95EH EVENTS CALENDAR, IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THESE INSTRUCTIONS THAT BASICALLY SAY THAT ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS JUST CREATE A FACEBOOK EVENT FOR YOUR EVENT.


Should we KEEP GOING?

Good call! Here’s the latest

Weekly updated 95 track PLAYLIST ON

MOUNTOWN FM

YOUR WEEKLY 95EH | Every week, the guy who comes by to sweep the metaphorical floors at 95EH—who also happens to mess about with a music blog elsewhere on the internets—shuffles up all the tunes he’s blahged about over the years & pulls out a fresh batch of 95 tracks/artists that can be used to soundtrack a healthy portion of whatever you get up to from the hours of 9 to 5. If you like listening to music, there is a decent chance you will like listening to this playlist.

#MountownFM - LIFE SOUNDS GOOD In A Mountain town

The ‘Your Weekly 95 Eh’ Spotify playlist is a part of the programming for a ‘pretend, for real’ radio station that broadcasts from an apartment in the 95EH.CA airspace called “MOUNTOWN FM”. You can listen to a Mountown FM program whenever you want, wherever you are. Like right now. Or later. If that sounds like your kind of thing, you should also bookmark this page: moun.town/fm


+ Here's SOME stuff FROM THE BLOG for even more options for getting to know the local area better — or maybe just for extending that coffee break a little longer, eh?


And that’s it for this weeks weekly run down.

If you’d like even more “ehs?!” throughout the week, make sure to follow 95EH on the socials…

…and be sure to keep an eye out on Friday for 'The Weekend EH?!’ — which is kinda like ‘The Weekly Eh?!’ but also a little different *and more importantly* The 95EH Events Calendar is always adding more local events because events never stop getting made—so there’s just a lot of stuff going on, eh?
