Welcome to Scamcouver.
If you’re looking for something mindlessly warm, fuzzy and sugar-coated about Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, try “Vancouver is awesome.”
The only cocktail available here is unsweetened blend of cynicism, snark, and shit disturbing. How do I do it? Volume.
For under the civic boosterism, the “world class” branding, the golden glow West Coast condo yoga lifestyle is a bedrock reality of grey skies and wet feet, corruption and crime, greed and desperation. It claims youth, but in reality it’s about as old as it gets -and twice as tired. There’s a big gap between the image and the reality and it’s bridged by the scam, the grifter’s distracting flourish that leaves you short, monetarily and spiritually.

Contributor and sidekick DJKlueless claims to be a clueless emigre; his fighting style cannot be beat.
