Thanks for the reply, I have seen that chart, but I am still unclear of where the general admission actually is...as in, are the seats below the hill or on it? (It does lack an elevation chart, haha)
General admission (the green area) = the hill. The area with the seats will be floor.
I've never been to anything at the Gorge that wasn't Sasquatch so I can't say from experience if doing GA (aka the hill) is worth the money, but I know that at Sasquatch I like to watch most of my "must see" shows from what would be the back-middle of section 203, which is right in front of the soundbooth. Since you've been to Sasquatch, you should be able to know if you like to watch your "must see" shows from the hill or not and if you think that's worth doing this time.
I did my best ever on Oscar picks this year, got 21 out 24 correct! Fun show but kinda underwhelming. I liked Ellen's mingling in the audience, though she wasn't quite as funny as I was expecting for the intro. Overall, a decent year but no real memorable moments that will be brought up over the years to come.
Commercial Drive area but a little more north closer to Hastings can still be decent price-wise and is closer to downtown.
I think Craigslist is still the go-to for Vancouver listings but there are a lot of scams and general shit to wade through. One good way (if you have the time) is to just go to a neighbourhood you're interested in and walk around looking for vacancy signs and copy down numbers; a lot of buildings only list on their own property management sites so unless you're specifically looking them up, you might never know they're renting.
Does anyone here watch the US version of Shameless? I did the stupid thing and watched the whole series over the last couple months so now I'm completely caught up and I have to wait each week for a new ep like some chump! This is torture, the last few weeks I'll find myself jonesing for the show every few days. (But don't spoil me on Sunday's ep, I haven't had a chance to watch it yet 'cause my mom insists on watching with me.)
