My Mom and I stopped by Strange Adventures on Sackville Street in Halifax this afternoon to pick up my Dad’s comic order. It’s a great store full of all kinds of fun stuff; definitely worth a visit!

The dude painted on the wall next to the store is Scott Pilgrim. While most people are probably more familiar with the recent Michael Cera movie, did you know that Scott Pilgrim ‘started’ here in Halifax? It is the name of a song by Halifax locals, Plumtree, (a song I danced around to in my bedroom A LOT in junior high). Bryan Lee O’Malley, creator of the comic, was inspired to name his title character Scott Pilgrim after hearing the song at a Plumtree concert. You can read more about it here. I think that’s pretty cool – I’ll have to get a full shot of the mural soon!
