7:00: I’m writing in the present tense as the computer is accompanying me to the Copper Pig’s grand re-opening on October 25th. I’m decked in a new suit and Italian tie (from Italy, no less) overshadowed considerably by a knockout girlfriend at my flank. I want to strut past the entrance like Zapp Brannigan in Futurama and exclaim, “I AM HERE WITH A WOMAN!”

There may not be a royal academy for it, but that doesn’t mean belly dance isn’t an art. It’s one that Sandra Tanemura has been teaching for more than two decades in Prince George and, like her aunt before her, Tanemura still faces the common misconceptions about the form.

A self-proclaimed girly-girl, Mandy Paavola’s home make up studio is decked out with the brightest pink you can imagine.

Mount Robson is still waiting to be captured by Gurinder Paul. An elementary school trip to the provincial park was the catching spark for what would eventually become GSP Photography. “It was unbelievably beautiful up there,” Gurinder recalls, “but I didn’t have a camera.

(Photo Credits: James Doyle) It’s a tale as old as time. Girl leaves the Lower Mainland to attend postsecondary school at University of Northern B.C, girl flounders around dabbling in various disciplines, girl watches America’s Next Top Model and it opens her eyes to a career she never dreamed was possible.

Lance, Kirby and Steve make up country/rock cover band The Killbillies. The Scene PG sat down with bassist/vocalist Steve to talk about where the trio comes from and where they’re going..

Imagine you have an interest that borders on obsession. It conjures excitement
into the small hours of the morning, making sleep elusive. It is an abyss, gently
drawing in most all of your available time and money. Over time, this escalation
of commitment causes others to question your reasoning and no matter how
concise your explanation, you simply cannot make them understand.
