The Most Delightfully Horrifying Photograph I’ve Ever Seen

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006

This picture of my friend and 2045 compatriot Joe may be the most delightfully horrifying thing I have ever seen. If you were going to do a modern remake of H.R. Pufnstuf mashed up with Pee-wee’s Playhouse, this face would be both it’s basis and inspiration. Please send all therapy bills directly to Joe.

Sometimes Buses Break

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

Seattle buses have a pretty cool feature in that they attach with poles to cables over head that deliver electricity. This way, the buses move us around town and we don’t have to burn anything like a bunch of cavemen. Well, it seems those polls have their limit and today I came upon one such […]

Once a year I violate my “no music reviews” policy and trot out my annual favorite for you to applaud, explore or ignore. Choose wisely. This year’s choice? Year of Meteors by Laura Veirs.

An Update on the Mayoral Auction

Friday, December 16th, 2005

I seriously apologize for disappearing this week. There was a bit of a medical emergency and between that and all the work I’ve been taking on just threw everything into a heads-down mode with few pockets of relaxation. As a result, I haven’t been paying attention to the Lunch with The Mayor auction. The bidding […]

Friday, December 9th, 2005

Seattle Metro and Sound Transit are testing out wifi on some of their buses and I’ve been fortunate to be on four such buses this week. I flipped open my Gameboy DS and tried to get online to play a little Mario Kart against my friend Ivan Ho in NYC. (Seriously, you didn’t think I […]

The Stranger released this year’s Strangercrombie catalog, a kick-ass fundraiser with what may be some of the best gifts I’ve ever seen and raises some serious money for Northwest Harvest. Among this year’s auctions are Karaoke with Senator Maria Cantwell (I would sooo take her to The Crescent), a Pampered Pirate Package and (getting to […]

Coming Through the Rye

Thursday, December 8th, 2005

I’ve often wondered about the situation where a blogger asks another blogger to meet in person and meets the individual behind the blog or curtain or modified wordpress install. At the invitation of Ginnie, the author of I Absolutely Hate the Word Blog, I did exactly that. Much like enjoying a post-Dances With Wolves Kevin […]
