Slacks, I hope you and yours made it through the floods unscathed.

Thanks Dagg! Yes, we were among the lucky ones. It's amazing how much devastation has occured to the neighbourhoods near the rivers and in our downtown core. I was just out to see the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion play on Thursday evening and then just hours later (where we were seeing them play downtown) everything seemed liked it was under water. But thankfully, since we're uphill and a few miles from the river, the Kanaloa lounge (and the rest of my house) is dry.

Good to hear, the images on the news were/are incredible! CBC is saying it could take 10 years to rebuild! crazy....

Some updates on the ol' tiki face that sits on the wall-mounted flat screen:

I was really tired of looking at the boxy Version 1.0...so I changed it. I also went against my own advice and ended up making the whole thing about 10 lbs. heavier in the process.



Above is the TV cover with added foam & drywall paste (that's where most of the added weight comes from).




Above it is painted & finished (for now). I like it a lot better!

It scares me. Tell your kids it'll eat them if they don't do their chores (that ought to screw them up for life).

Great googly-moogly! I love your bar! What a killer way to blend your TV into the room. You, sir, are quite the clever one!!!

I wanted to hide the stereo, PVR and DVD player (see them sticking out like a sore thumb in my last photo post), so I devised a plan to hide them in a barrel I scored off of Kijiji:



Finding the barrel for a decent price wasn't easy, but it was easier than converting it into a cupboard. I found instructions that were very helpful off the inter-webs.




I'm liking this a lot better now. I just need to get more crates (and small barrels) to help stage this area.

Thanks for the nice replies folks! Here's a few more updates:

I also wanted to hide the record player, and give the LP's a place of their own. Oh sure, the LP's already had a spot in the old record rack, but that thing was kind of lame to use (and a bit off-theme).
Here's a crate I made to hide those components:








And remember that water fountain I threatened you with? I think it's almost done now. Here's a peek at where it's at so far:





Mahalo for lookin'
