Getting the Most out of Life with Some Bunny Loves You – Tour Dates & Interview

5 Apr

jesse thomBy Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Jesse Thom is a talented performer who not only recently published his debut children’s book, Some Bunny Loves You, but also is a busy musician. He’s a member of a few bands and also a solo artist. The Honey Tongues is a gypsy, folk-rock alternative group and Daemon & Airdrie is an electronic musical duo. Between the various types of shows he performs in as he travels the breadth of North America and beyond, life can be stressful. He’s a meditation coach who also needs time to relax. Sometimes, all it takes is a return to basics, to a time when he found peace, or rather with a creation which helped set him on a creative path.

From April 7th to May 22nd, he will be like a Traveling Wilbury, taking his puppet show (based on his book) through parts of Vancouver Island and the Greater Vancouver Mainland area before hitting the musical stage and performing behind the curtain again. Stops include the Garden City of Victoria to which he is from and details can be found on his website. I’m willing to bet a break will still be needed for this performer to re-energize like a particular battery bunny mascot before he embarks on another musical odyssey.

“As with any success, I’m just going to honour the path that forms,” revealed Thom, “I listen to my heart, and listen what the audience wants and I provide what seems to be wanted and needed.”

The Ghostbusters Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary!

7 Jun

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)


When I’m a paranormal investigator and pop culture geek, just what am I going to do on June 7th, 2014? I’m looking for ghosts and celebrating the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters of course! I have a box of unopened Stay Puft Marshmallows (the caffeinated kind), both movies on Blu-ray to watch, the video game (PS3 edition) that I still have to finish, and a glow in the dark t-shirt to wear — when the weekend is over, I’m gonna feel like Slimer after gulping down a banquet. A lot of fun was experienced for those who joined in the social media bandwagon that began at 12pm PST, but alas, when I’m out chasing ghosts since after midnight, I needed my sleep!

But it’s not just this movie that started my life down the road to real investigative work. Scooby Doo and The Three Investigators were just as pivotal to influencing my years in pursuing the unknown and coming up with hypothesizes in what the other side may entail.

But for today, cheers have to go to Ivan Reitman. Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson for making my childhood become what it is: fun-filled with sugar plump Stay Puft marshmallow men floating around my head. Waitaminute, they’re green and … eeew. SLIMMMER!!!!

(For the lucky thousands, there is an official touring art exhibit that will be hitting Chicago and San Diego soon; it’s been to New York and Los Angeles, already. Maybe if Canadians yell loud enough, it’ll hit Vancouver and Toronto too?)


Thoughts on Walking with Dinosaurs Making Land in Victoria, B.C. Sept 19th

10 Apr

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)


When people say to friends that they are going to Walking with Dinosaurs,” the most immediate response from them will no doubt be “Which one?” This year will feature the Arena Spectacular show. Not to be confused with the CGI movie or BBC documentary of the same name, people will most likely find the live show better than the film.

The film was developed to entertain young minds in a style reminiscent of Don Bluth’s Land Before Time.

But for this family fun roaming show, tickets could sell out fast. This show is coming to Victoria, BC Canada on September 18th for four days of roaring fun.
