Record of the day: The Police - Ghost in the Machine Syncronicity may be their most popular record, but Ghost in the Machine may be their best. First off Spirits in the Material World. Two, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. Three, Invisible Sun. Four....well I'm just rattling off the tracklist now. Also they were much happier recording this I think. I mean they did Syncronicity and stopped speaking to each other for over 20 years so there's that. But the reason I love this record may be because it closes with Darkness, an amazing downtempo synth and bass led number that explains my thought process at 7am in the morning. The players were great too. Sting is on my Mt. Rushmore of bassists. Stewart Copeland may be the most original rock drummer out there.....a hybrid of 4 on the floor funk, swing jazz, and reggae and dub beats. Andy Summers guitar playing is understated but is the glue that held them together, both musically and emotionally. Pretty sure Sting and Stew would of killed each other without him. Lastly, the cover. So 80s but so freaking cool for it's time....still amazing. Like a clock telling you it's time for your police break. Ps. This police don't kill innocent civilians either. #thepolice#ghostinthemachine#sting#andysummers#stewartcopeland#rock#thisiswhyimhot#vinyllovers#records #vinyl #potd#music #industrial #arenarock#recordstoreday#experimental#worldmusic#classicrock #pop #postpunk #newwave #vancityhype #vancouverisawesome #narcityvancouver #instalike #vancitybuzz #vancity#picoftheday#recordoftheday
💭 Think customers, not clicks 🖱 Individual sales are great, but the real value lies in understanding what an individual customer, or group of customers, is worth. 📈 In a previous era, when the consumer journey was linear — or limited to a single channel — it was possible for marketers to take a more narrow view of measurement. 📺 But in today's cross-channel world, these metrics fall short. 🌎 They fail to communicate the real results that #marketingdollars drive for businesses. 📱 🎯 #design#analytics#bigdata

The starting place of this piece began from the song Toxic Town by Emily Millard. Part meditative harmony, part self-inflicted purgatory, this large scale drawing is a tangible record of passing time. A claustrophobic tangle of intersecting forms reflects the artist's experience of being a visitor in the chaos of the city. Leya Tess is an island based artist of mixed eurasian heritage. Her black and white ink drawings are adventures in cyclical movement. She looks to find a fluid space between the eastern yin-yang duality and western presence-absence.
Remember when you wanted what you currently have. ° ° Sometimes we get so caught up in what’s next or what’s new, we forget to notice what we’ve already accomplished. Take a few minutes today to notice how much you’ve grown. The challenges and fears you’ve faced and overcome. You’re more amazing than you think. ° ° Lucia N°03 - the Light 🅁🄴:🄼🄸🄽🄳 🄼🄴🄳🄸🅃🄰🅃🄸🄾🄽 ° ° #remindmeditation#meditationtools#gratefulness
LIFE GROUPS // We live in an increasingly fragmented and disconnected world. Though social media and other technology have made our world seemingly more connected, people have fewer genuine friends than ever before. It feels scary and threatening to allow ourselves to be known or to invest in knowing someone else at a deep level. It is much easier and more convenient to stay on the surface. Yet when we take the risk of being authentic with a small group of people, we can experience God's grace and love coming through others, which leads to freedom and transformation. #bettertogether#godisonthemove —————————— Join The Journey // Sundays, 10am, 4840 Capilano Road North Vancouver
